If you want to get a professional answer to this comparison you should go to Rtings.com then click on All TV Reviews, then select "Side By Side Comparison" and choose Sony 940E vs. Sony 900E.
That extremely long comparison table gives you all you need/want to know about both sets.
Then go to another well regarded online A/V site, HDTVtest.com, select All TV Reviews, click on Sony, press filter, then read their extensive reviews of both sets.
I have owned a Sony 940E since the beginning of September and often times i still find myself amazed by its picture; I don't know if i was one of the "lucky ones" but my set has NO banding, NO dark screen edges, NO obvious blooming/halos, NO screen "blotches", NO dead pixels that i can see, NO detectable and unacceptable screen motion issues, etc, etc.
If having Dolby Vision is essential for your needs then keep in mind the 900E does not have it due to its video processing chip, whereas the 940E will have it eventually, as stated by Sony.
If i may suggest, considering the size, fragility and price of these sets, purchase yours locally just in case you bring it home and find screen problems and need to make a quick return/exchange.
If purchasing online, my main question to the vendor would be "what is your return policy and what exactly does it imply". You might be surprised how many online dealers do not accept direct returns due to unacceptable screen performance and tell customers they must deal with the manufacturer, otherwise there will be re-stocking fees as high as 15% of total cost.
