I would get this one instead: Sony XBR65X900E 65-in from Costco. Only $210 more, but get flawless Costco returns

Unless you are dead set on OLED of course
Once you go OLED and your a good target for the technology (movies and TV shows viewer with varied games usage) there's no turning back.

God I love my perfectly contrasted image. My OLED TV is the only gadget I bought that 18 months later excite me like a teenager in front of ladies boobs.

So I'm not personally concerned about burn in with this TV after owning it. The OLED light setting on this TV goes insanely bright at 100, I keep mine at 37 and it's still bright. This is the setting that can contribute to burn in if it's high.

The one thing that is bothersome to me with this TV is judder after watching it a little bit...because the TV is too precise with lighting every individual pixel, motion judder is very noticeable. I have turned on trumotion for simulating 120hz video with interpolation in order to compensate but it will take me getting used to because it looks so odd compared to the regular 24fps I'm used to.

Patiently waiting next years releases so I can grab a Panasonic 65" on clearance via my supplier pricing.

Of course having hands on experience trumps lemmings. Far better to educate oneself in this matter than piling on, geographically, without a horse in the race,
On topic:
this is a great deal and the best OLED price ever in Canada for the C series,

Try 4 and 10 in your motion settings. 10 and 10 gives you SOE.

Pioneer haven't made TVs since the Kuro was stopped.

Their OLEDs are superb and their DX900 for $1999 right now is a stunning LCD.

Burn-in is real for today's OLED tech and the 2018 models (maybe even the 2017's in an update) will have software to dim static logos and possibly it will also work for static graphics in game play.
You can still game with an OLED but there is certainly risk in doing so. I tried gaming on it but all I was doing was worrying about graphics being up too long so I gave up.
Moronic? That's a personal view that isn't shared by many.
In short OLED is not suited to game play without compromise.

Really want to bite the bullet on this, seems like a big risk as shipping back would cost a fortune.

I have heard great things about the DX900, but I'm used to the contrast and smoothness of plasmas. If I'm going to spend $2k+, I think I am going all in on an OLED.

Without a DOUBT. Was just saying that the DX900 is quite amazing especially at the price. Better than the Z9D and $1999 for the 65" is a steal. Damned close to the superior OLED price though.
