Sony 65" 4k Dilemma....850 or 900

I Really can't decide on which of these two sets to buy. Is the 900 worth $460 (after taxes) more than the 850? I saw them both side by side at BB. I know this isn't the proper way to judge, but I figured they would be both showing their best (brightest) off. The 900 did look better, but I can't say it looked $460 better. Is there any other reason I should be considering the 900 vs 850 other than pq? Like better upscaling of 1080p signals, motion blurry, ect....

Which would you choose and why?

Thanks for reading.

There are enough discussion of this in the sony x900e thread that pretty much everything is covered... ... 33728/237/

Short answer, if you are happy with x850e, go 850. x900e is basically the closest to oled without being oled (thus no burn in)... unless you want to count x930/940 where there isnt noticable difference (to most).

Big difference between 850 and 900 is 900 has 45 dimming zones. Want details/other differences... you probably can find every bit of info in that massive thread...

there is no difference in upscaling, no difference in refresh rate and as far as i know neither has ghosting.
