Much appreciated sir...
I have my eyes on q85r and Q80R
1. How do you find the colors, natural enough for you in movie mode?
2. Upscaling: it is supposed to be improved on lower source content...good enough on normal broadcast ?
3. Blooming...you said the black bars are jet black? Please try and play the latest Spider-Man multiverse scenes and see if black bars stay black please...Sony tv failed this test a lot.
Thanks again for giving us all some hope..
Share some pics just for the pleasure if possibles
Gravity is another good movie to test for black letterbox bars.
And 'jet black' is not really sufficient.
To do this test properly, you need to view in a pitch-black room (no lights on) and the letterbox bars should be utterly invisible (the image should truly be floating).
Of course, if you watch with any lights on, this level of true blackness is immaterial, but for those of us seeking a true floating image in a dark-room viewing environment, the letterbox bars need to be truly invisible (and not just jet black).
[EDIT: Correction - 'jet black' is plenty black enough: https://www.phrases.org.uk/meanings/jet-black.html
"'jet-black' is still the epitome of blackness. You can have 'as black as coal', 'as black as pitch' or even 'as black as Newgate's knocker',' but for the real blackest blackness we resort to 'as black as jet'."
For whatever reason, when I think of Jet Black I think of the color of the Stealth Bomber...
