Another image of the TV itself for further proof.

Just a heads up that Photobucket has seemed to have gone to crap lately and really restricted their hotlinking of images so your images aren't showing up. I have seen them braking images across numerous forums now.

Photobucket now requires you to pay $40 a month to embed photo's.

Oh wow, that price is absolutely insane!

Imgur is a great alternative to that.

The price was $5999.99. Sorry about the pics, when I posted them they showed up. Been a while since I used Photobucket.

I currently have a Sony 75" 940c and will be replacing it with the 75Z9D.

My question is can I use the same wall mount? Are the screw holes in pretty much the same place for each tv?

Thanks for any info!

This question might sound silly or stupid, but the Sony ZD9 can have the same level of blacks that a Pioneer KRP-600A Plasma has?

How does the TV handle with SD pictures? I have lots of DVD, Laserdisc and even D-Theater tapes.... is the quality good?

How does it handles motion?

The blacks "crash" as they say in this TV, causing "monoblock" squares?

I am thinking in going OLED 65 inch, but i have the ZD9 with 75 inch for the same price almost (more €500 euros only)...

If i go OLED i go Panasonic EZ1002...

Really? Because i am tempted to go for the ZD9 75 inch... i see so many issues with OLED and i read that this TV had such great colors...

My Pioneer KRP-600A, despite the fact it had "Reference Quality", the blacks were perfect to me, but in terms of motion didin't handled perfectly...you could see some "blur" in motion when you looked close...

Guess that is more perfect in this Sony right? Even with SD material it will have the same quality as the Plasma?

Both sets (Z9D & 2017 OLEDs, any brand) are superior to your almost 10 year old plasma (that TV was released in 2008 right?) But, you should go to a retail store and see for yourself.

In case you're wondering, my setup: Sony 65x930E, Denon x3200W, 2 Martin Logan 35XT, 1 ML Motion 8 Center Channel, and 1 ML Dynamo 700W Sub.

Better. Basically use the light canon, give 3 bfi for perfect motion, and if your a gamer you can run 1080p 120hz or 4K 66hz to keep the input lag low as hell despite hdr and fake hdr processing (which is incredible) and "smooth graduation" (eliminate banding in non WCG sources

It's nuts how good this is

If you have a universal mount you will be fine May have to buy different metric bolts at the Home Depot but that's about it.

Same situation if you are going to replace an 80" Sharp with the 75" Z9D?

The Mounts are universal with arms and bolt holes to cover nearly all spacing combinations up to a point.

My Sayno was bought for my 40" Sony and can be set for up to a 400mm square pattern (for a 65" Samsung) maximum.

Larger mounts should be the same. As @Cleveland Plasma said, you'll likely need to purchase the metric bolts that go into the TV. I had best assortment at Ace and found black metric 'allen' type to match the rest, but measure needed lengths carefully first.

NO !
The Z9D offers somewhat more onscreen brightness, however the 940E has higher native and ANSI contrast ratios according to professional test reports, and that indicates to me that it is capable of achieving a minimum black "floor" that is actually lower than the one achievable by the Z9D.

Both sets have the same X1 Extreme video processing chip and as far as differences in FALD performance, according to the same test reports, their implementations on both sets is so good and so close in performance that it makes it very/very difficult to count the number of dimming zones, no visible blooming/haloing discernable, no corner "flashlight", no "dirty screen effect", no bandings, etc.

I just purchased a Sony XBR-75X940E and i don't know if i was lucky or not but the screen of my set is flawless using test patterns to check for screen uniformity issues; Watching high quality content such as blu ray the picture is mesmerizing, especially the way it handles details in very difficult near-black scenes while at the same time being capable of displaying extremely bright highlights.

Anyone considering the purchase of the 75" Sony Z9D at twice the msrp of the 940E ought to read all reviews of both sets and then check them out at a store.

Meant to reply to this long ago. I hope you are still enjoying your panel. I agree with all that you say, save for motion blur. The X940E can present major motion blur (4x slower than an X900E). While the 65” Z9D has improved pixel response over the 940E, Rtings still considers it slow, particularly with something dark against a light background. I see no measurements for the 75” Z9D but YouTube recordings reveal more typical motion blur.

I was set on an X940E but I found the motion blur too high. . I believe the cause of this is the choice of a panel with better contrast (or was it color?) angle performance than most LCDs. I would have to revisit Rtings measurements.

The cost disparity between the 75” Z9 and the 940 is huge. If one is not sensitive to blur, the X940E is a great choice for the money in comparison.

It's not clear that there will be a replacement model. It might just get discontinued. It's already over 1 year old with no replacement.

I'd be really surprised, and disappointed, if they don't have a replacement model this year.

As I get closer to buying, I’m really wanting to get the 75x940e.

800 zones vs 250 is huge. With 250 you don’t get black bars since the cells overlap. 100% of movies you see blooming into the black bars.

lots more smearing too (if you play games)
