Anyone know what the new version of this 55" and 65" will go for?

I bought the 65" for $1400 during the boxing day sales.

Did they ever fix the 4K blurring ? I personally don't notice it with PS5.

What is the better deal (value for money)?

This Sony @$1,200 or the Hisense 55Q9g for $1,000?

According to RTings.com
the Hisense has a better score
but I am not impressed with my Q9G.

This right here is what makes RTings.con absolute rubbish. Except for purists, most people look past the TV and focus on the media. Most mid to high end TVs that are well installed, practically look the same.

Beware of Sony and its poor design/reliability, I have the 65 inch x900e and when 1 led backlight burns out, it bricks the whole tv, 4 red lights. It is unusable until the led is replaced, and thats an expensive repair. Never again Sony for me.

I have this exact TV and size. I quite enjoy it for it's snappiness, colour, black levels, design and picture quality. Overall, I like it but there are a few drawbacks from our day to day use:
  • Volume up or down - can't really hold and have it increase, I have to keep tapping
  • Glossiness - This will reflect light so if you're in a bit of a sun or have light behind you, you will see it but not horrible.
  • Google home integration - it works most of the time with voice not always (to turn on or off or control the TV). Probably a set up issue on my end but it's not bothersome enough for me to figure out.
  • Home screen customization - I wish there were more but it's enough for us for now. We really only use 2 apps so we don't need all those recommendations.

I've been tracking the 65" for the last few weeks, it was on a limited time offer at $1698 last week - they keep messing with the pricing. I'm wondering if it'll come down to the boxing day price of $1398 in the next couple of months when new TVs come out.

I have not experienced any of these issues but I have read about it on various forums. I guess it's highly dependent on the TV, the user and the sophistication on noticing these things. I'm a simple watch tv and play a few games person so for me, it's fantastic! I probably would've gotten better value for money with a TCL as I probably won't notice the difference.

I had vertical and horizontal blue lines within 1 yr so they replaced with another new. So far ok , but not the old SONY brand anymore, but among other brand it’s the only one with better quality with good picture
Is Samsung and LG are reliable??

You wouldn't say that, if you ever have a chance to see how bright the H9G gets.
Anyway, one was built with gaming in mind, while the other for content watching, especially in HDR.
Another note, the Sony definitely better picture out of the box, the H9G needs calibration

Have not had any of these issues either. I've had to reboot the tv twice (like settings reboot) but other than that no issues.

The 4k 120 fps issue is way overblown. No PS5 or XBOX Series X will provide a good experience at 4k 120 fps in AAA games.

It's only blurred if you enable the 120fps, and even then, only slightly.

I play the XSX and PS5 on this tv at 60fps and it's beautiful. Any game played at 120fps will be past gen or upscaled anyway, so the blur isn't really an issue IMO.

Can't wait for the VRR update, though.

I have to buy a 48' and a 65' inch and it's been a while since I've bought a TV. The options are overwhelming and the pricing discrepancies don't make sense to me.
Can anyone point me in the direction of some useful information on what to look for?

I have the 65" and currently play on PC at 1080p/120hz or 4K/60hz and it's incredible. Agree that the 4K/120hz blur issue is overblown by people who don't even own the TV, most users will never notice it and most games won't support it in the first place. This model is still a bargain for the excellent picture quality especially for 4K HDR/DV content which looks insane and performs comparably to an LG CX which costs over $1000 more

Yes all their North American models except for their highest tier which is the OLED A90J I believe is assembled in Japan.

The new x90J is coming . Price should release by the next tow months. It has New XR chips and give better PQ and brightness. Unless x900 drops under $1000 . Otherwise is worth to wait for the new model.
