X940E, X950G or X900F

Hey everyone,

Moving to a new house here soon so using this as an excuse to upgrade our tv for the living room. We currently have a x900e 65". From the research I have done, the 950g and x900f are pretty comparable? The X1 ultimate sounds nice but what useful actual advantages does it have over the x1 xtreme that actually make a difference right now? Right now I'm heavily leaning towards the 940E, the amount of dimming zones on 940E vs the other 2 is a pretty huge difference. Im wondering if anyone has had a chance to compare the 940E vs one of the other two?

-Viewing angles not a big deal, Im the only one who actually pays attention to things like this at home so I ensure I get a good seat

-blooming, I know these aren't oleds, but the least amount of blooming would be great. This is a biggie for me, love my 900e but it blooms quite a bit for my like.

-motion, I do watch a lot of sports, though I hear the 940e struggles on paper, anyone have real world experience with their experience with any of these sets?

Thanks everyone for your input

Since the 940E is 75" only, are you looking at 75" for the 900F and 950G also? If so, the 900F and 950G are quite different since the 75" 950G has the X-Wide angle layer. Since viewing angles are of no interest to you, the 75" 900F would be preferable over the X-Wide angle layer 75" 950G. Both will have more blooming than the 940E, but motion control for sports on the 900F and 950G are excellent and the 900F has deeper blacks than the 75" 950G.

For the best movie watching by far and least blooming, the 2016 940E is the one. It has the most zones, best FALD, and deepest blacks. For sports, not so much with that 35 ms+ response time measured by several reviewers.

All TVs are a compromise as none are best suited for all uses. In terms of pure PQ, the 940E blows away the mid-tier 900F and 950G, it is a quantum level better. It's sad that Sony LCDs have regressed from the outstanding 940E and Z9D 2016 models, but it is what it is.

Yes, looking for a 75" set. The slower response time does have me questioning the decision on the 940e a little bit, but I wonder what it's like in real world use. I checked out the 940e owners thread and some complain about it and many others are satisfied with it and claim no noticable difference. Anyone know of any major retailers who still sell the 940e model?

I don't watch a lot of sports but I do game on it sometimes, (where it supposedly also has motion issues), and never notice anything myself. It's really good tv, pretty close to oled. I ordered mine on amazon this year, I think you can still get it there but definitely not in store I don' think.

^ thanks, I think that is the route I'm going to go with. Hope they offer extended warranty also.

So can I get DV from my Oppo to the 940E? I’m also considering the 940E or a 85 900f

You should check and see if all the HDMI ports support 4K and arc. My friend is selling his 900f he doesn’t t like it. You might want to think twice before you buy it.

May be stating the reasons why he doesn't like will help us.
