Just saw the C9/CX Vincent video. Very informative. Always look forward to his reviews.
Brightness is a priority for me, second to black levels. (No, not LED brightness at the expense of everything else). But if I have a choice between two OLED quality tvs, one with less aggressive ABL and a brighter tv, THAT would be the tipping factor for me. This was also a consideration when I was auditioning the Sony A9G.
Because of this, I'm very glad I got the C9.
Yes, we cannot go by the youtube video quality. But if the brightness difference that Vincent showed with regard to ABL and overall brightness is ANYTHING like what I see in the video, I definitely prefer the C9 over the CX.
(Vincent describes the differences as "slight". But as an OCD videophile, "slight" differences like this, whether on the bright end or the black level end of the spectrum, are always quite significant for me).
Based on early review/talk, I was expecting other differences between the two tvs to be more significant, but they weren't.
From the video, what stood out to me was:
The CX has the best motion and upscaling. (I wonder how much the SD overscan off feature comes into play here).
The C9 has the best brightness and least black level issues - (floating black levels).
It sounds like they are both great tvs. (Something I already knew).
Just pick your poison based on what is most important to you.
