Well, I didn't replace my 940D with the SM9000. I kept my 940D in my media room and bought the SM9000 for our living room. In my opinion, the SM9000 doesn't handle motion as well as the 940D, but it does have Dolby Vision, and I like the OS more. I don't watch a lot of movies on the SM9000, but overall, I'm happy with it.

Hi guys, first time posting here. I leaning towards getting a LG75" 9 series.
However I saw a 8 series 82" in Best Buy that looks really nice for the same price.
I will be replacing a 60" Sharp Aquos in a 19'×16' room.
Do anyone think the 82" will be too big for that size room. I am worried it may be too over powering, like just dominate the room too much, it is the family room, and the wife already makes comments about my audio black boxes taking up that wall 😞
I offered to repaint the whole room, so that made her kind of happy.

My room is 13x14 and the smallest set I will upgrade to is 82". Go big.

For owners running firmware 3.60.35 are you able to sucessfully use AirPlay from an iOS device to the TV? I can see the AirPlay UI and settings on the actual TV but none of my apple devices "see" the TV. I confirmed that my devices are all on the same wireless network. Has anyone been able to airplay?

I haven't noticed anything yet but the TV is in the family room with the wife most of the time. I am very pleased with the 86" though, might not have the best blacks but the colors and uniformity seem to be very good and I don't watch in a completely dark room. Wife is very happy the 70" was just do darn small.

Can anyone AirPlay at all? Can you establish a connection to HomeKit?

I understand there is a firmware update that resolves blurring and shaping issues for gaming. Also 4k has no more frame skipping for gaming at 120hz. Many things fixed in firmware update for gaming and variable refresh. I can't wait till my 86SM9070PUA gets here next week!

Does anyone who owns the 75" or 86" know how many dimming zones are on the "Full Array Dimming Pro" versions? Is there a way you can count? I know when you go from Samsung's 2019 models it goes from 48 - 96 - 400 in the Q90!


Why does LG keep it a secret?
