The Z8H could be a winner if the blacks and contrast are at least respectable and blooming is at a minimum, cause name an LCD LED that doesn’t have some. I didn’t see anyone mention if it does have X wide either? Also if it has 2.1 hdmi on all 4 ports, I could live with 2 personally! ATSC 3.0 is not a deal breaker! You still have some broadcast channels at 720p, it will be awhile for 4K broadcast on a regular basis and you can always buy an external tuner cheap down the road. I’m thinking this will hit high nits at least somewhere between the F and G and hopefully the 75 inch gets enough dimming zones. The backlight is a question too? No one mentioned BMD which is also not a deal breaker for me. The Z9F is a very good looking tv despite not having it. Maybe that’s where they are saving the money to get it at a below 8K Master Series price point?
I haven’t seen any 1st impressions yet from anyone who is at CES.
I’m kinda getting tired for waiting for thee perfect TV! I probably would have gotten the Z9G if they made it in 75 inch.
