Hello - was thinking about the Sony 950G but on the owner's thread for that TV it seems like that model has all kinds of reliability issues or features that don't work or it resets all the time or can't recognize certain HDMI inputs. All this is scaring me off the 950G.
This will be my first TV purchase since 2008, yes I am still watching a 50" Kuro! I was copying D-Nice's settings way back when. The Pioneer Plasma's used to rule this site!
Been holding off for several years till OLED prices have come down - but now want the 77", and even at $5K, it may not be low enough, especially if the new TV will cause me to have agita!
Are you guys generally happy with the operability of the set - I know the picture quality is gorgeous - but how about living with the unit?
Hehe, good times - I also had the 50'' Kuro and was using settings by D-Nice.
I now have the 77'' C9, my notes:
- no noise from fans, I sit 2-3 meters away from the tv and it's silent
- picture quality is amazing
- the bezel is small enough to make this tv look smaller than it is - in my eyes it looks smaller than my previous tv, a 65'' Panny!
- on-board apps: (1) Netflix and Primevideo work perfectly (2) YouTube also works perfectly, and even better compared to my new Nvidia Shield and my HTPC. There's no banding using the TV's app, whereas there is banding on some videos when using shield or htpc. (3) media player - the TV's media player app comes from the 20th century.. the user interface is ugly (just a file manager), and it doesn't play all subtitle formats. The weakness of this app is the reason I bought a Shield. If you don't watch local content, you may not care for this.
Overall, two thumbs up from me.
