You are definitely one of the lucky ones!!
I still have some time to figure it out and will probably wait till after CES to make my final decision, just to see what's announced. I do know that I will not consider antyhing less than 80" for my living room. Even if I had to live with motion blur, i won't go down to a smaller screen. I could potentially spend as much as $1500 more, but that's my upper limit.. i'd prefer to keep within $500 of the Q6 I bought however.
And so, I'm thinking long and hard about the Sony XBR85X850. Unlike the smaller screen sizes, the 85" in that line has a Full Array VA Panel (same as the X900F but without the dimming feature) Also it has the X1 processoer, but not the X1 extreme, and thus input lag and motion may not be quite as nice as the X900F. But it's literally $1,000 less... and since I'm coming from a Q6 which is Samsung's "Budget" QLED, makes sense that the equivalent Sony would be the 850F. All the reviews are pretty bad, but they reviewed the smaller versions that had IPS panels so hopefully I can find more info to make a decision.
Again, I'm thrilled to death at my Q6 in terms of color, brightness, minimal DSE, minimal lighting issues (Blooming/Clouding). I'm just not wanting all the motion blur (ghosting/Trails,Smear, etc). SO maybe the X850 is my answer without breaking the bank.
Anyone know anything about the 85" version of that set?
Have those of you with motion blur issues on the 82Q6FN tried the new firmware yet? I haven't installed it yet but according to Joelster on Youtube, he feels that it has improved the motion.
