I know that’s how they are when on display at the store. I just can’t decide. I really wish RTINGS would put out a review of the 2018 P already. Or should I just wait for the Vizio P Quantum, since it’ll be the same price point as the Sony? I need help!
I saw the 900F at Best Buy and it was by far the worst picture quality in the entire store. Don't know what the problem was ..maybe bad settings and lack of run time? However, now that I have the 900F at home, I believe it is one of the best picture quality sets I have ever experienced. It is right up there with some of the nicest OLED sets I saw at Best Buy. The RTINGS review of the 900f is on par, and if anything, quite a bit modest. This is one phenomenal piece of modern technology. Truly a next generation product.
Moral of the story ...do not go by the default setups you see at Best Buy. It is very misleading and I am surprised at how many people weight their decisions so strongly upon this flawed source. Although until recently, I was one of them! Couldn't believe how far off from home theater reality things really appear in the BB store. More emphasis should be given to the ratings and feedback from credible sources online. It was kind of a blind faith thing for me but a leap that landed me in a much better result than I ever imagined with this 85" 900f.
