Great find Groovy, Looking for the 65inch. I just might drive to your beautiful state if they debut there first. Again, thanks for the info.

Here you go. Looks like Sony threw everything they had into the X950B. Hopefully the reviews will bear this out. According to leaked prices, the MSRP will be around $8,000 for the 65 inch X950B.

4K Ultra HD,

4K X-Reality Pro

Full Array Local Dimming (FALD)

Motionflow™ XR 960

Triluminos Display : Yes

Deep Black Panel : Yes

OptiContrast Panel : Yes

X-tended Dynamic Range PRO with 3x brightness range

3D: Active


W950B

Local Dimming

Motionflow™ XR 480

X-tended Dynamic Range for 2x brightness

Thanks. So the biggest difference are 1080p versus 4K and FALD versus edge-lit.

p.s. and yeah, the leaked price for the 65" X950B is $8000 - is there a price for the 65" W950B yet?

and faster motion processing capability in the X950B, 240hz refresh vs 120hz refresh. The leaked priced for the W950B is $3,300 for the 65 inch TV.

The faster action rate is a bit meaningless without knowing backlight brightness and if there is any truth the 480Hz number, both sets should have pretty low motion blur, but if the X950 really has 150% the brightness of the W950 that should translate into somewhat better motion blur reduction.


$3300 for a 65" edge-lit set seems a bit much, but I guess it's all relative (to X950 at $8000).
