I also narrowed my search to the 900F and Q70 (75").

Having enjoyed a Panasonic V10 plasma for 11 years, I chose the Sony for its superior motion handling, shadow detail and uncalibrated color.

Yes, there's blooming when viewed in a dark room. And yes, the UI & built-in apps are clunky. Fortunately, neither of these applies to how I use the set, so I'm very happy with it.

Good luck!

Of course, streaming services only use DD+ at most and not their DTS competitor format at all but I mentioned it because people on this site are quite often enthusiasts that do more than just use native streaming apps for their only content and even then, native Plex, VLC and Kodi media players would be unable to play DTS at all. I know personally a lot of my content is DTS and not Dolby, so it's definitely worth mentioning before spending $1100+ on a TV to find out you can't run DTS at all unless you plug an external device straight into a soundbar... then again, real enthusiasts use an external device anyway, but you get my point, between 2 TV's so close overall it's worth mentioning for consideration.

I came to the Q70 from a 13 yr old JVC, so I'm no picture quality expert.
The Samsung 82" Q7D at Costco is a great deal too - making it hard for me to wait for the 2020 releases.
