I currently own a 2008 Sony KDL46Z4100B LCD tv, not an LED tv, a regular LCD that has served me well, however as of late I found two dead subpixels in my screen and noticed some slight image retention from watching 4:3 content, but nothing that I can't live with. I'm contemplating taking the first step into 4K and have my eye on the Sony X950G, I've only viewed 2 panels at different stores, one of them had some damage causing light bleed, while the other had breathtaking image quality, at least in my opinion. I have read the reviews of Rtings, **************, and others on this forum and the opinions seem to be of a mixed variety with regards to the set, specifically regarding contrast ratio, light blooming, motion handling and so on. I'm looking for a good tv for movies, video games, and sports. I'd be using it in a semi dark to dark room and for what its worth the black colors on my existing Sony look pretty dark to me. I understand that the X900F has a higher native contrast ratio than the X950G, however the 950G sports the X1 Ultimate processor with lower input lag for gaming which to me would be a factor. I would not go with a brand other than Sony, I attempted to go 4K in the past with a Samsung and it was a very negative experience. One of the concerns that I have is coming from an older technology is the problems that I am hearing with newer technology such as light bleeding, blooming, haloing, and so fourth. With all that being said, should I let those factors deter me from purchasing a new TV and if not, should that tv be the new X950G or should I wait and see what Sony rolls out next year. Once again, thank you all for your time and any feedback would be helpful.
I'm in the exact same position as you are!
Got a 13 year old Sony TV, LCD, not LED I think, which has a dynamic contrast of 10.000:1, which I can't believe it's almost twice of the new Sony TVs.
How is this even possible?
Not only that, but I've seen the 900F on stores and I hate the colors. They feel dull to me. The black bars on my TV also are perfect. No blooming whatsoever.
How is it possible that 13 years after TVs are worst? Less colors and blooming? It is making it VERY VERY difficult for me to buy a new TV.
However, the 950G has almost everything I want. I need to see for myself is the blooming is so bad and will annoy me. I like to watch movies at night in the dark.
But then again, my TV is flawless, but I want a bigger screen and more HDMI ports. I've tried HDMI switches and they're terrible. They don't work.
