Yes I understand generally the more I pay for a tv the better it should be but can’t justify spending $300 more for the quantum x if people are telling me the X900F is still comparable (in this tread 1 and 1). So at +$500 is the q80r that much better and remember I only care about image quality not sound or smart features.
Not “better”. Different. You’re going to pick your poison with those three choices. The 900F has the most accurate color with almost no banding. The 900F also has the best upscaling and motion performance, but the worst blooming of the three. The Q80R has the best wide angle performance and blooming control of the three at the expense of shadow detail and native contrast. The Q80R also does not have Dolby Vision. The PQX has by far the brightest screen and the best contrast performance with FALD enabled, but it has the worst upscaling and color gradient performance.
Only you can decide which set fits your preferences best. To use yet another tired and imperfect car analogy: Do you want a 2 seater sports car, a 4 door sports sedan, or an SUV with all-wheel drive?
