Hello all. Over the past 2 weeks I've been reading a few of these forums, re: the A9F, Z9F, LG C8, and similar options. Did a couple of trips to Best Buy, read every online review. I have a 60" late model Pannie Plasma which I adore, but was thinking about going bigger and brighter (77" LG C8, or whatever). I had pretty much ruled out the A9F for the reasons people rule out OLEDS. And reading between the lines of the reviews didn't really light my candle.
I just did another trip to BB where they finally got an A9F in person- AND I WAS BLOWN AWAY!!! Totally unexpected. Next to the LGs, and Sony A1eE/ A8F etc- the A9F to my eyes looks like a whole different breed of animal. I was not at all prepared for THIS based on the reviews, etc I had read. I only saw their 4K loop and will have to have them set up some 1080P stuff to watch, but I was literally mesmerized. I even completely forgot about the incline of the stand, which was a deal killer before I saw the set. Even a 77" A1E would not do it for me after seeing this- I NEED THIS SET!!! Even with the hassles of OLED.
So I have some questions for you folks, which I'm sure have been answered, but I simply had to say: DON"T go by what anyone says until you see this set!!! If you have the cash, and you love this hobby,you have to see this set!!! Right now, to my eyes, this is a game changer. OF COURSE, you may see something different. I really wanted to go bigger, but this has changed my mind, for now. I still have the Z9F to check out, whenever.
For you lucky owners, please: how is the set on upscaling 1080P, especially Netflix and Amazon? Not their 4K, but the mass of material at 1080P? Blu Ray? (Not Ultra HD but 1080P)? How is upscaling? How is the motion? Any SOE? I'm sure these questions have been asked, so please bear with me. Thanks for your patience, please pardon my over excitement.
