All the dimming zones in the world do not matter if you have poor algorithms and software to utilize them.
I love my Z9F and I wouldn't trade it for any Vizio that's been made. And trust me, I tried *very* hard to go with Vizio. I mean, they're so much less expensive, why wouldn't I!? But the more we looked at the TV's side by side, the more we found issues with the Vizio's that we didn't like.
Consider light output, image processing, color accuracy, upscaling, motion, panel uniformity, panel lottery... can I stop now? Of course no TV is perfect (despite what the Z9D guys say
), so if you're obsessed with *native* contrast ratio and/or reflection handling, the Z9F isn't for you.
The PQX's sure were hyped this year, and low and behold, didn't live up to it. They're fine TV's, but they are still a budget brand and are lacking when it comes to some of the refinements that Sony offers. Even after all of the 2019 models have (finally) hit the shelves, a Z9F at a reasonable price (open box) is a fantastic choice.
Not hating on Vizio, or PQX... just saying that, IMO, the Z9F is absolutely superior. In my experience, the Vizio's always look better on paper than they do in the flesh, whereas Sony seems to be the opposite.
Cheers and GL!
