85” upgrade recommendations

Hello everyone,

I’m looking to possibly upgrade my tv from 75” to 85”. I currently have a Sony 75x940D that I’m very happy with. I mostly play video games and watch YouTube on the tv. I don’t really do much dark room viewing as the room it’s in is bright and I don’t really watch movies. Do you guys have any recommendations? I’m open to oled or lcd, ips or va panels. Would like a good gaming mode for hdr gaming with good response.

Thanks

The Sony 85" 900F ...if you can find one. You won't find an oled larger than 77" and they are much more expensive.

All men dream: but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible.

Thanks for the reply...would the picture quality be similar to my 74x940D?

I went from the 75XBR940D to the Samsung 82Q90. No comparison, the Samsung hands down. Especially for gaming. As a 2019 model they can be found at a very reasonable price.

I am also thinking to get a 85' because the prices seem right.

However, I am afraid the 85' is too big for regular TV program, such as news, SD programs.

currently I have my 65' LG oled for regular programs and 90 inch projector screen for movie.
Do anyone know if any 85' tv has the option to shrink (not zoom and fill) the display screen area?

Amazing we are at a point where the content doesn't look great on a huge tv. What a phenomenal problem to have!

That might be the first time I've seen the issue written "out loud" so to speak. I get where you're coming from with SD content looking a bit odd on a really large TV. However, I think I'll deal with it. I'm also looking for a worthy upgrade to an 85" TV to replace a 65" Panasonic ZT60 Plasma. I've been looking at the X900F as well. My space isn't ready for it yet and I don't want to have it sitting in a construction area until then so fingers crossed some will still be available in a few weeks.

If you are near a BJs Wholesale, they have the Saamsung 85TU800D on sale for a very good price.

I had a 940d which was a great set and upgraded to a Z9G.
I feel it is better in just about every way. It even looks great watching all directv content.

I’m in a similar boat. The x900f can be got for under $2,500 right now which is a phenomenal price. But think I’m going to hold off and see how Vizio prices the new 85” Quantum X. If it comes in at $3,500 or lower I’ll probably snag that as it’s much more future-proof, especially for gaming (VRR, HDMI 2.1, 792 dimming zones).

It’s the TU8000 renamed for warehouse sale. It’s probably truly the entry-level Samsung. Decent price, but I bet it drops even more or gets to that price permanently.
