Android TV is the same operating system on the Nvidia Shield and has a huge following. If I was in the market for a new TV it would be awful tempting although I'd be concerned about damage in shipping and dealing with the hassles of returning it. Seems like a good buy though, those prices are about $500 lower than what Best Buy is selling on the same models for.........

If they didn't stop making plasmas, many people would still be buying them. Many people who own them, cling to them and rightly so. Having deeper blacks is not the end all. Even VA panels don't touch the blacks in my LCOS projector. It's all subjective, what your viewing environment is like, and what you value more in a picture. Contrast/black levels is only one aspect of picture quality.
I fall into this category of loving my plasma (60" LG 1080p for reference) and wish they still made plasma sets as they offer the best picture (imo).

Looking to replace the projector in my theater room in the next year with either a newer 4k hdr projector or an 80"+ va panel (straight line viewing in a light controlled room). Usage is mostly Xbox so waiting to see what the specs on the new 2020 consoles will be before upgrading.

I've been leaning towards the Samsung NU8000 at 82" (or maybe Q6F if price comes down), but unsure how this Sony compares. 85" is the sweet spot for me as this is the same size I project at now, but it looks like only LG (IPS) and Sony offer 85's. I've also loosely considered going for 2x 65"-70" sets side by side or over under, but that would really ruin the movie watching experience in the room.

My heart sunk! I just noticed that the 65 inch was being sold for $ 750!

WTF WTF!!!!!!!!!!!!

I thouight oinly the 85 was being sold.
This price beats the one I just got by $75! Didn't see it going this low! Buydig charged some weird 8% sales tax on their site and the normal rate for my state 6.25% on ebay.

Not sure what you're seating and throw distance are, but I recommend checking out the upcoming BenQ HT3550 for about $1500.

Here's a prelim review of it. [tapatalk.com]

My JVC is 1080, but still does it for me over watching a 75" 4k.bjt I'm stuck at 100" for my screen due to throw distance. Going to play with a wide angle converter lens or reversing the pj and shooting off a mirror to get to 120". If not, the 3550 is on my short list. Unless JVC decides it wants to make a short throw pj.

Highly recommend jumping to 10" [displaywars.com]. You will take movie watching to another level.

I don't think many people commenting actually have this TV, most are just talking about the technology in general with no point of reference. I have the 75" and love it—so much so that I also had the 2017 model and decided to stick with it after my kids cracked the screen with an errant toy throw.

I'm baffled at comments about android OS. I think that's actually an advantage here instead of a custom to the brand one. I've never had issues with it, and as someone else commented, it's super responsive and easy to move between platforms (cable, Netflix, amazon, etc).

As for panels, if this isn't going in an incredibly bright or weirdly angled room, you probably won't even notice. The bigger deal is the upconversion engine, of which Sony is the best. Most (all?) of your content will be going through this and it's much more important in my opinion. If you're unsure, go to a box store and see the TV in person. Ask them to hook up an antenna and see how it looks with content that's not optimized to look good on the showroom floor. Check out the 850 and 900 and see if you can even tell the difference—and if you can, is it worth it. There's a reason this TV costs more than Vizio/low end LG/etc—it's clearly superior.

Finally, this is a very good price. I got it for $1650 (that included tax and shipping) from greentoe over the super bowl. I was nervous about greentoe, but that was a smooth experience in case anyone is wondering.
Everything else I've read also comments on how well the Sony upconversion is. I currently have a couple year old 65" LG 7650 series with an IPS panel. We mainly watch HD cable and the LG does a pretty good job of displaying HD cable. I imagine these Sony's would do a fantastic job in my setting (very bright room with weird seating angles). I only sit around 8' from the tv so I'm not sure if 75" would be too much to handle at that distance? Or if the Sony would handle the upconversion so it would benefit us?

Thanks,

-Guru

I have the 850F. It is an amazing picture. This price is insane. It's been over 1000 for a year

Great TV at 65" even with the IPS panel. This panel gets dark enough and it is hard to notice the difference with a well lit room. The edge lighting on mine is even all around, fortunate to have a great panel.

Unless you look at the displays next to each other in best buy and notice no difference and are okay with whiter blacks, like in a bright living room. I've had IPS PC displays for years and hate everything else.
For PC monitor, I understand IPS is good. I have seen this same TV 75X850F multiple times at my neighbor's friend place and I was not impressed by it much. other than screen size.

Thanks. I'll be sure to keep an eye out on the HT3550 once there are some reviews. I would prefer LED/Laser over bulb if I stay projector, but depending on the black level and and input lag this may be worth considering.

I can play with throw distance, but due to room shape I am limited in screen size. This is really why I am considering going for a TV as 80" TV's are now around the same cost as a 4k projector. The down side to a TV is I need to fab a low console, remove the projector screen & mount, re-wire audio, etc.

My theater room is above my garage and has sloped ceiling on both sides severely limiting wall real estate. I could maybe go up 5" if I went with a manual pull down screen, but that's about it. And I like the automatic as it lowers to cover the only window.

Does anyone notice clouding on with this panel when displaying dark scenes? I've seen this mentioned previously by a few posters in other threads.

Also the upscaling on this is good right? It does a good job of upscaling hd cable?

Clouding is a lottery. A lot of the defects/blemish with any tv is pure lottery.

That being said, this is likely to have worse clouding due to being an IPS and having NO Local Dimming.
