Burnt retinas arent something to strive for. Lol
I agree. I always have to turn down the brightness to 10% of max.

It's not about saturation. It's about the HDR highlights. As for your criticisms of the Sony TVs. That's why you go Master Series.

The highlights my man, the highlights. I'm not satisfied until thunder cracks blind me.

Visions has 55in C8 for 1298$ for those who don't mind older model. Guess not in ONT though.

Good thing nits isn't the only thing that makes a TV look and perform well..

FireStick / FireTV devices have always been about Amazon's closed ecosystem and sideloading stuff onto them has historically been janky at best. I guess if you're looking for an inexpensive option the Firestick is okay, but if you can budget for the Shield then it's a better investment and a better experience overall. The upscaling capabilities on the latest version are bananas.
Can you elaborate further?

Right, but we're talking about $3k+ TVs. In this price range, they all have awesome contrast, uniformity, colour, motion processing etc.

PS> I had a LG B6 and Panasonic ST60 until my mother-in-law managed burn both in. You're preaching to the choir.

Yeah, off-axis viewing can be a problem. I personally wouldn't buy a LCD below the Q80R. Once you go below that, they are all way too compromised. My TV progression was ST60 --> B6 --> Z9F --> Z9G.

I just picked one up, seems like a good price.
Anyone have any real updated insight on what will happen with the new models in these times? They were supposed to be released around now, older models were supposed to go on sale… so far it's not that impressive.

The A8G is now $1760 open box, which with the extended return time should be a safe bet (if it has a defect or hundreds of hours of usage, I'll return it… when possible), so I'm very tempted to try my luck with it, if the actually new B9 at $1700 isn't better in some way (I don't expect to use the TV for games, just media in a light controlled room).

Thanks!

Check out this demo video. It's pretty magical in real life. I have some good 720p stuff that looks amazing on my 4K TVs with this:

I see Gibby's has the C9 65" for $2398 on an open box. Is this worth it? I really don't want to have to go through the hassle of returning it. Are they really checked by experts to be 100% good, or am I just inheriting someone elses problems?

It's a gamble. You can always call them and ask why it was returned? It wouldn't buy it otherwise

Only difference I could see is the HDMI 2.1 support. How is the OS better? Can you explain?
