MY 65" 900E was excellent until the panel went bad. Sony allowed me to get a replacement (was a little out of warranty), but could only replace with a 950G. The 950G has been horrible. So bad, in fact, that I bought an A8G with every intention of selling off the 950G to recoup some of my cost for the OLED. The OLED was equally as bad with motion handling as the 950G, so it got boxed right back up and went back to BB the next day.Speaking of OLEDs, when I was TV shopping in 2018, I had a hard requirement that it had to be less than 44" wide, due to where I was wall mounting the TV.
I did not see any OLEDs which met this requirement, so I had to look at 48-51" TVs which did fit this requirement.
I see now there is a Sony A9S which is coming soon, a 47.6" OLED.
And LG has a 48CXPUB that's out now.
For those of you that have both this thread's Sony XBR900E, and an OLED, how is the motion blur?
This Sony TV is still a limited use TV, partly because it's upstairs.
But also, I think my plasma TV does a better job with motion blur, especially when it comes to sports. It's not bad with this Sony TV, but every now and then it is noticeable.
I have managed to set the monitor to a 144 Hz refresh rate but only using 1080p resolution.The 900e has very nice images and true 120Hz refresh, which are the reasons I bought it.

Using 1440p or 4K the maximum refresh rate is 60 Ha.
How come you say that it's a 120 Hz TV ?
OK, but if you try to see that fast motion video content on 1440p or 4K resolution, do you see the panel behaving as a 120 Hz monitor ?Because that's what the spec is. It's a 120Hz refreshed panel in hardware, not the "Motion Rate 120 Technology" lies Samsung tries to foist off on their customers by trying to make up for their inferior panels in software.
I have no idea how it works when driven by a computer video card because I don't use it that way. But on fast motion video content, the fact it's an actual 120Hz panel is obvious.

According to TV's specs that's impossible.
You are talking about when the set is driven by a computer video card. When driven by a video source, the maximum frame rate that 4K resolution currently achieves from any home-based video source (not a graphics card) is 60Hz. And that refers to the input, not the rate at which the internal electronics refreshes the panel. The two can be different.
Some high frame rate video sources do exist, one example being the 4K ride videos at theme parks and other venues for the public, which are often 120 Hz or even more. But those are not being displayed on consumer monitors, nor are those video sources available to home users in the form of streaming or disk playback.
Is this a good explanation of whether something is driven by a computer video card, or by a video source?
By computer video card:
By video source:
Cable TV / satellite
Blu Ray / DVD player
Video game consoles
Mirror of PC when connected by HDMI cable
Any other device connected by HDMI, component cables, or composite cables
OK, so you are referring to the so called "internal refresh rate" which is actually the frame processing rate by the video processor, which is very useful for frame interpolation use only.I have no idea how it works when driven by a computer video card because I don't use it that way. But on fast motion video content, the fact it's an actual 120Hz panel is obvious.
On a 120 Hz TV, the frame interpolation will work fairly well for 24 FPS and 30 FPS material as both fit into 120 at least three times.you don't need 3 times the source frame rate to frame interpolate 2 times is enough to not drop original frames (where did you even got the 3 times number from?). doing a 5/2 interpolation is quite popular on 60 HZ panels.
the 900E can be forced at 1080p to use native 120 HZ on a PC which proves it's a 120 HZ panel unsurprisingly.
Short answer, no.This is an embarrasing question, but I can't find the answer. I've got an Oppo BDP-93 connected to the XBR 900 via HDMI and I've got the XBR connected to a Yamaha AV receiver via ARC. Whenever I turn on the BDP-93 to play a CD (or SACD or DVD-A), the TV comes on. When I try to use the remote to turn off the TV, the entire system -- TV, Blu-ray player and receiver -- turns off. Is there an easy way to turn off the TV while listening to music?
Dolby Digital with Peacock streaming service.
I just installed the new NBC Peacock streaming service app and started watching Battlestar Galactica. I noticed that it is only being decoded as PCM, although I get Dolby Digital when watching on a broadcast channel or cable. It is coming through ARC.
Is anyone else using Peacock yet and what is your experience?
