Yikes, that's what I was wondering. I watched it more last night and it's definitely there. Not so much the whole top row but the center section of the screen - approx. 10-15 squares across with a couple rows below it less visible. Probably has to do with where I'm sitting with respect to the screen.
I was trying to take a picture (or even a video) of it in various scenes, but it's really difficult to capture. Much more obvious in the room with the content moving. Multiple factors seem to play into it, resolution of the content, color saturation, sharpness, ...etc. I could probably make it less obvious by blowing out other factors, but that's not where I'd watch it for what I'd consider a good picture.
When trying to track down some full screen images where it looks worse, I noticed there seems to be a lot of content with black bars, even if fairly small, across the top and bottom. I guess I haven't had a reason to notice the borders coming and going, but when the image is full screen it's obvious with a light colored uniform background and any panning, but clearly obscured with black bars.
Now it's impossible not to see, and it's always usually right over the heads of the actors on-screen. I did access some 8K content on YouTube (that actually plays back in 8K and not something less) and couldn't see it there, but the very few videos I've found so far are too dark across the top.
On a different note, the 85" Q900T really exposes movies differently. I popped in Ford vs. Ferrari last night in 4K and there's a ton of the that dancing, sparkling background noise in the image (not sure the technical term) but really annoying, only watched about the first 15 minutes (never noticed it all on the plasma in HD with the same movie). On the other hand Gemini Man in 4K 60 fps has jaw dropping realistic images, but has that soap opera effect due to higher frame rate. I'm not opposed it when the images look that good.
Kind of bummed though now, so LED screen panel anomaly on the Q900T, or switch to ZG9? Guess I liked that the Q900T had newer electronics/better access to 8K content and better hdmi 2.1 specs for gaming, although I'm not really a gamer.
