also, does the anti reflective filter that is visible on black screens in day time bother you at all after having spent some time with it?
I have not yet watched a blu-raydisc. That will happen this weekend. I have streamed one movie and watched a bunch of WestWorld, all in a dark room at night and the TV looks fantastic. I also game at night with the lights off, just as good in game mode.
I haven't noticed the anti reflective filter in the day. Once in a while at night you can see it on a full black screen when credits roll, or something of the like but it doesn't bother me. The benefits far outweigh the cons in my situation. My Z9D would show any light behind it at night like a mirror, and reflections were way more common and noticeable on the Z9D in general because its not nearly as bright as the 900T.
My suggestion would be to but the TV someplace where you have a flexible return policy, like Best Buy or a local retailer that is willing to work with you. My bet is that you would keep the TV as its so nice. Even if I was putting my set in a windowless home theater fully dark I would will still go the 900T route as I'm so pleased with it.
My only issue at this point, (I don't even notice the tilt anymore), is with VRR and the Xbox One X, causes flickering so I have VRR off. But as I have said earlier I very happy with gaming, so not sure that even when it gets fixed if I will notice a difference. Since the 900R didn't have the issue I am assuming it will get corrected via a firmware update.
