2017 Sony XBR 900E owners thread (No Price Talk)

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
I went from a 60” Pioneer Signature Elite Plasma to the 75” 900e in my basement. It was worth the upgrade for 15” and 4K at my viewing distance 8’. Made a huge difference for movies! My Elite Plasma is still amazing quality, colours just as good and probably smoother than the 900e without any motion settings on, but size was the ultimate factor in upgrading. It took me a while playing with the motion settings on the 900e (finally settled on motionflow at custom with smoothness of 1, clear at min, and cinemotion at high) as I found since it was a much bigger screen I noticed the motion / judder more.
I wanted to buy the 65” for my family room as I currently have an older 55” Sony (HX750) and sit about 10’ - 11’ away but my cabinet is 2mm too small! Waiting for a later version that will one day have a smaller bezel!
Coming from a Plasma I can recommend the 900e especially if you are looking to go up in size.
