I just want to make sure the Z9g is better than the 950G regarding motion.
Z9G is better than Z9D in some scenes, overal I would say Z9G >= Z9D
A friend of mine has 950G and motion is very good for what I've seen on it (it's only 55" though)
What I've noticed about motion in general - there are some sources where motion is different - so I have to configure clearness/smoothness - but in the end motion is very good and to my likeings on every source I throw to my G
Another point - I was looking my G in store(some cable as a source, or even OTA) and everything was bad, picture, scaling, motion - TV looked like crap. But I have experience with that so I didn' mind, I took it home for evaluation - and of course picture from the same cable/OTA source looked completely different. I've allready experienced this type of behaviour several times so I wasn't surprised. I'm trying to say that you shouldn't judge TV performance from looking in store with source that is shared on multiple TV's, cause input signal quality/strenght is preety bad yielding bad overal PQ
So I think motion, even on 950G should be good at your home (certainly better than 940D). I like to rock on clearness 1/2, it makes motion to my likeings, and Z9G has plenty of brightness to compensate - 950G not so sure. I see this as the biggest improvment in motion between Z9G and Z950G.
Other note on motion/sports, when watching footbal, grass on panning seems more sharp, real on Z9G than on Z950G - it's like processor does a better job on Z9G (although they are the same).
Watching tennis, hockey, nba, motosport - everything is a little better on G than on D - so very good. I haven't heard my friend complaine about motion on his 950G neither though and he watches a lot of sports throw cable mostly
Z950G is great TV, but Z9G is better in every way - so if you can afford it - I recomend you to buy it.
