It depends on your use case. I’m very happy with the set despite the blooming issues because the blooming in actual content isn’t bad and black bars aren’t a huge concern for me because I don’t watch a ton of movies. And I run a Gaming PC on it, so not having burn in risk is amazing.If I'm not willing to add any ambient lighting, then I guess it would be safe to say I'd be better served by an A9G/CX?
However, if you watch a lot of content with both HDR and black bars and are especially annoyed by blooming, then this probably isn’t the best set for you. It’s a trade off. Which do you prefer between TV A (smaller, perfect blacks, unbeatable SDR, no blooming, slight burn in risk) or TV B (noticeably larger, unbeatable HDR with the caveat of some blooming, no burn in risk)?
