Check what color the Fox logo is (white?). If it's not Red or Yellow, and even if it is, if it's transparent, it will likely not be an issue.

Why not just get a bigger house. You could always knock a wall or two down.

Joking aside the burn in issues keep me away from oled's. I'm particularly susceptible to motion blur, so I'd go the 950 route; but that's me. I don't look for it, it finds me. 950 is a marginal improvement over the 900, so if it's worth the extra quid to you, go for it.

85, you know you want it. Just sayin'

You guys are killing me lol.... this is why I’m going crazy. So OLED could be a possibility since I don’t think I watch anything with static red logo. And because motion is important to me I think that mean the 950 over the Samsung Q90R. And sadly I have to say the 85 is too big for the finished basement. Go ahead and mock 😉

So 77" OLED? That is a gorgeous panel! 🤤

Marantz SR7013, Polk Signature S60s/S30/S15s/HTS12s, Polk MC80 (x4), AC Infinity T9/S9, AAB4 HTPC, Panasonic DP-UB420K...still to come - 82"-85" 4K QLED or eqv.

So after pondering all your suggestions I’m debating the 75inch Sony 950......... or just going for the LG C9 OLED but only in the 65 inch, the 77 inch is too expensive

LOL if number of zones don't matter then why has no Sony full array tv come even a fraction close to the dimming performance of the Z9D that had 650 zones on the 65" and 800 on the 75"? Sonys 100 zone tvs are terrible. And no, wide angle tech doesnt cause blooming, so guess again.

Dimming zones don't matter... Yet the 42" Dolby Pulsar has 6000 zones in order to control the brightness.

Sure, 50 zones might not make or Break a TV. But 500 zone difference definitely can.

So are you suggesting the Sony 75 inch is not worth consideration and I should just go for the smaller 65 inch LG ?

Based on prices of all 3,and what you're coming from... I'd go with the Sony 950g and save the money over the Q90 if what you care about most is sports.

They 75 inch Sony 950 is $2500 at Best Buy and the 65 LG OLED is $2100. And while I do watch a lot of cable sports I also enjoy movies.

Thanks for the info

If what you are saying was true then ask yourself why is Samsung, Sony and LG not increasing the dimming zones every year instead they are focusing on fine tuning the algorithms.

I don't think you could go wrong with either tv. I like the Sony 950 for the larger screen and b/c it gets brighter. Since you are in a basement that really would matter there. I come from a Plasma tv so it's hard for me to go with an LED. I like the idea of them, but I always find something "wrong" with them lol. I think at this point you will be fine "burn-in" wise on an OLED. If it were 4-5 years ago I would say it may be a problem. I'm still rocking a Panansonic 65 inch VT30 plasma and I just really like that great picture that I get from it. When I purchase a house next year I will probably go to an OLED b/c of it.

Sorry one last question, if I was to skip the OLED 65 and go LCD in a 75 does the Sony in your opinion beat out a 75 inch Samsung q80 and/or the Q90

the bright screen wouldn't matter in the basement b/c you do not have a lot of light coming in. My living room currently has a lot of light that comes in through the windows.

that i'm not sure. I had the Q80 for awhile in a 65 inch but returned it. It was a good tv, but at the $2k price that it was I didn't think it was worth it. My goal right now is to milk the plasma that i have for another year and then jump to an OLED. I have been tempted already b/c of the prices that I have seen, but my wife keeps telling me to wait.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, they both have strengths. As for me, I vote for the Sony.

So easy spending other people's money.

Best

I love Sony, and I love my 940E. And the 950, Q9, and C9 are great sets. However, have you looked at the 75” Vizio PQX? At the current price it is worth considering.

That would be the only other set that would be worth taking a look at.

I'm in a similar situation. Coming from a 70" 1080 Sharp, I picked up a 65" Sony A8G OLED. Quickly I realized the size drop was a bad choice. So I've been reading these forums daily trying to figure out a better choice.

I ordered a 85" 950G but ended up cancelling the order because it would take over a month to deliver it. Also, with the blacks I'm seeing on this A8G, I won't be able to deal with the blooming. I do love the Sony's for everything else they bring to the table though.

I was looking at the 77" C9 but having an OLED in my house now has shown me they are absolute mirrors. I have a single lamp to the left of my screen about 7 feet away. I see reflections in dark areas of the screen from the wall behind my seating position, that wall behind me is a good 25 feet back. So I find myself looking at dark areas thinking there's something there to see only to find it's a wall or picture frame.

Now, I think I've decided on the 82" Q90. It's got one of the best anti reflecting screens and really good blacks with little to no blooming. It's flaw however is that its brightness can get overly high watching HDR content. I think I can live with turning down the backlight a notch or two if needed.

It's a hard choice for sure. Everything has its flaw(s). I really wanted to love OLED but the reflections are truly that bad. I wish sony would have done better with the 950G. Looks like Samsung wins in this round.

I did look at that set, a rep from the store said I would regret going from my current Sony 900 to Vizio

Heard some mixed reviews about motion/sports on the Q90 but other then that it seems to get good reviews, but since I’m trying to go bigger then my 65 the 75 in the Q90 is a little too much for me. That would push me to with staying at 65 for the Q90 or go down to a75 Q80.

I keep going around and around lol

I don't watch sports really. Maybe a couple games a year so I can't attest to that on any set. I will say that the forum sponsors here have incredible prices and impeccable reputations for customer service. My A8G OLED will be going back to BB once I order its replacement from one of them. Chris at Cleveland Plasma has been very good to deal with.

Just get the Q80R. For your viewing you wouldn't notice any difference from the Q90R.
