My previous tv was a 65 inch Samsung MU7000. Picture quality wise the Sony beats it hands down. I used the calibration settings from Rtings and the results are impressive. First thing I noticed out of the box is how fast the OS is. The below are what I feel are improvements compared to my old tv.
1. The black levels are very good, from a brightly lit room down to dim environment. However when I switch off all the lights, ,I noticed some amounts of clouding at the top left edge (only when testing a full black screen), but when watching normal movies, I dont notice it at all.
2. I like how bright this TV is. I would say this is almost twice as bright as my older tv, so when watching in daytime it is great.
3. Unlike my older tv, I dont really notice any reflections when watching movies during daytime. I have a large floor to ceiling sliding doors about 5 meters to the left of the tv which lets a lot of light in.
Couldn't be happier with my purchase. For a 85 inch tv this would tick all my boxes, unless you are looking for really black (OLED) level tv, and are willing to pay much much more. For the money and performance, this is the tv that I would personally recommend to any one of my mates.
