And I have been going back and forth and reading reviews and reading this forum and watching YOU TUBE videos on all the SONY models I can choose from and still confused on which I should choose. I have come to realize all sets are not perfect ..If your looking for a perfect set you probably wont be buying any set soon.
NOTE: I am not a gamer at all...I dont watch sports often either...my set will be strictly for Cable (OPTIMUM) broadcast TV and of cause Blu Ray discs (4K Blu ray and standard ) and I sit fairly close to my TV being in a small NYC apartment.
Help me make a decision.
Well let's take a step back. OP *specifically* asked about 65" Z9D vs. 75" 940E. Not only that, but asked a specific question about motion blur and gaming.
I generally think it's odd to compare two different sized TVs (as your couch/viewing distance isn't usually a variable, so there's an optimum *size* you should probably be gunning for), but I'm assuming OP feels budget constrained (as many of us are) and the 75" Z9D may be more than he wants to spend. So I tried to focus my response on those two sets, and what I have read/experienced with regard to motion and pixel response on them.
I bought a 940E, and not a 930E, because:
1) I wanted 75" size
2) I wanted FALD, not edge-lit, for better light control.
It's as simple as that, IMO. If you're instead looking for a 65" TV, I think your options are the 900E, the 930E, and the Z9D. The 900E won't be getting the dolby vision update (if that's important to you) and only has 12 dimmable zones (so technically "FALD", but not a very robust implementation), but has the faster pixel response time. The 930E will get the DV update, but is edge-lit. And the 65" Z9D would be getting the dolby vision update and has a very robust FALD backlight system, but as I indicated above, the 65" version tested a slower pixel response time than the 900E did, which could be important to a serious gamer.
I really like my 940E, FWIW.
