I own this TV and can say that I paid substantially more for it less than a year ago. It supports HDR and Dolby Vision and several AVS members have chosen this over the LG OLED because of the PQ and brightness and FALD technology. Whoever thumbed down on this must have some reason that I would be interested to hear about.

PS I have not dealt with greentoe nor do I keep up with the price of this TV. But it's lots lower than what I paid for it.

Wow, that's really thiccccccccc for a TV this expensive. If I'm paying this much it better be paper thin OLED.

Good luck with a 75 inch oled

I was (understandably) skeptical last time someone posted one of these as a Greentoe deal for $3600ish. Took a shot anyway, having never dealt with the company before. It's a bit of a strange process if you've never done it before, but to be honest, it actually worked out and I received the TV for the expected price, via reputable and authorized retailer who is often featured on SD (they ask that you not publicize the retailer).

Anyway, point of all that is that I wouldn't hesitate to try another Greentoe deal AND this is a great deal for a great TV!

This tv is not worth the extra $1000 over the XBR-75X900E in which I've seen go as low as $1999. The 900E is also FALD, but does not have the X1 Extreme chip. I don't know of any other difference between the two. I even read the 940e has issues with clipping or picture distortion that the 900E does not. Anyone is free to chime in here.

The x930e/940e and Z9D all have a little bit of motion issues, but likely only a few folks would noticve (Extreme gamers, lots of sports content watchers maybe).

It depends on what you're willing to spend, but the x940e is actually a pretty big upgrade over the x900e. The X1 extreme chip is a noticeable upgrade by itself, as it also has Dolby Vision support and the 900e never will. The 940e's zone count is like 4-5x that of the 900e, and the contrast ratio/blacks get very extreme with it turned on, basically almost OLED level. rtings measureing 11600:1 contrast ratio with local dimming on, over twice that of the 900e. It also gets way brighter for HDR content than the 900e, at over twice the brightness on a real scene.The 940e also has a higher quality glossy finished screen that deals with reflections better than the semi-glossy finish on the 900e.

The 940e is basically a "poor mans" Z9D. By that I mean it still does basically everything the Z9D does, but maybe at 98% of the performance.

For some, a $750 price hike is more than worth it for the advantages mentioned above over the 900e. To me, I'm holding out on this thing getting under $3000. I remember seeing open box 940d's at best buy last year for $2,899. With greentoe being so prevalent now, maybe we will see a few manufacturers will to hit that $3k or under mark.

With the 75" x900f getting the x1 extreme processor at $3800 opening price, I feel like that will drop to $3300 fairly soon, and maybe $2500 by black friday or spring next year, making that an even better buy than this.

I think it's a sales strategy by greentoe .. throw 1 or 2 low price sales and then have it on SD to make it to popular deal and raise the price Smilie my personal opinion

the 940E is true HDR, capable of over 1000 nit in brightness. The 900E doesn't come close to that number. But I agree with you that the 940E is not worth $1,250 over the 900E. That's 100% more than the 900E.

As a Vet I'm waiting for the 900E sale again on the Exchange. I just applied for their card so will get 10% off first order should be able to grab it for $1800 no tax or shipping. Since this is for my Bedroom 900E should be fine.

If you're going to mount in a bright room then I think the 940E is definitely worth the premium over the 900E. That's the reason I went with this set. BTW, CC price protection might knock up to $500 off of this price if you PM to a site like joesav.com that always seems to advertise having them in stock for around $2500, although I doubt if they ever ship. I also added the squaretrade warranty via Costco for around $100.

I own the 940e. I paid around this price, or slightly more, for an open box before the holidays. After testing the 900e and the 940e in the magnolia room at bb, I can confidently say the 900e doesn't even come close to the 940 in terms of picture quality, motion, brightness, local dimming, sound (not that it matters). Hell, even the case and bezel of the 900e has cheap plastic where the 940e has aluminum. It's about as close as you can get to an OLED in a 75 inch screen without spending $10,000. It truly is stunning.

I'm also an 940e owner. Note that this only has shitty on board DV support and support for low latency DV over HDMI. So Apply TV supports it as of today but no UHD decks will. At least not any time soon.
