Not at all. However, that being said, we watch in a light controlled dark room, so brightness is not an issue. While the A9G can’t get as bright as the Z9D, which as you know, can be give blindingly bright levels if desired, the A9G can get sufficiently bright in my opinion. I also own both a A9F and A8G at vacation homes which we watch in moderately bright rooms and insufficient brightness of either of these TVs has never been an issue.
