I concur. We researched 49-50" tv's extensively for 5~6 weeks, and we're so glad we went with the 900E. It's truly an amazing 4K HDR 120Hz panel, and the FALD might even be more effective, overall, in the 49" then in the 55 and up size panels, due to I think only [20 zones?]. DaveB would know, and as he advised abv, the 900E is by far and away the best of the best, in that size class.

Hear, hear. This couldn't be truer ! :inexplicably missing *nod* emoticon:
Moreover, the 'WOW Factor' never goes away. Or at least we don't think it ever will.
We're still in awe of it every time we turn it on.
