The slightly gray-ish black bars don't even bother me anymore. I am not sure why I obsessed over that in the first place. I think I was just used to the perfect black bars coming from OLED and was trying to judge the black level from the letterbox bars. You are not going to get perfect black bars with LCD, especially during HDR content and judging contrast from the blacks bars is just plain dumb. When it comes to the actual content itself, the picture has amazing blacks and that's what counts.
With that being said, I am really beginning to love this TV the more I use it. I don't think any other TV upgrade has given me as much wow factor as my 900F has. The huge increase in size to a 75" probably has most to do with it though.
But aside from size, even the PQ itself continues to amaze me, and I came from an OLED! There is something about the image on the 900F that just seems so smooth and pleasing. I can't quite describe it. I am not sure if it's the great processing that Sony does. Maybe it's because I've never had a 75" before and the extra size increase is making me feel that way? Who knows. It just is so... nice. "Smooth and pleasing" is probably the best way I can describe it. It's just really satisfying to look at, no matter what content is being displayed.
But the 900F isn't even a top of the line set, yet it still feels like it is. It's probably not fair to give the PQ so much praise since I don't actually have another 75" to compare it to. I am sure I would feel different about the 900F PQ if I compared it to a 77" OLED, but at least compared to a 65" OLED, I much prefer the 900F. I am not sure if that is a testament to how good the 900F PQ is, or how important size is. Either way, 75" gives me a hint of that 'cinema' feeling. I never really got that feeling on a 65". I can absolutely see the appeal of getting the 85" 900F, but unfortunately that is a bit more than I am willing to spend. Maybe one day!
