Pretty good price. I think many of the tvs dropped in price in anticipation of super bowl.

This is also 1999 at best buy.

I missed out on the christmas deal so glad they have it again.

Fyi I know greentoe is not a deal, but I was able to get the tv for 1900 from a reputable distributor without tax or shipping.

Is greentoe's pricing always tax inclusive? Or the vendor that accepted just doesn't charge sales tax to some states?
That's what I'm contemplating. If having the ability to just buy it in store or pick it up in store from Best Buy most likely out weighs having it shipped to the house. A higher probability of receiving a cracked screen when shipped to the house.

Mine is getting delivered in about 3 hours from Greentoe. Man, if I had just waited, I'd be picking this tv up today from the local video store. Oh well, I ended up saving $50 from that route and if I have to return it, Greentoe picks it up for me, so...

I've been tracking these & The 65 was $1,199 & the 75" was $1,799 during the holidays for reference
why there is a huge price gap between 65 and 75 inches?

All this talk of the 75" 950g being worse than the 900f or 900e is nonsense. I have all three (75x950g, 75x900f, and 55x900e) and I can tell you without out a doubt that the 950g is the best.

Sites like rtings will lead you to believe that the 75" version has worse contrast ratio due to the Wide Angle Filter, maybe it does on the spec sheet but I can assure you can not tell the difference (rtings didn't even review the 75" so I have no ideas why they even say that).

The 950g is brighter, sharper, faster, and has MUCH better HDR and Dolby vision than the 900f. The X Wide angle feature IMO is the best part of the whole thing. No matter where you sit in the room, you get that same amazing experience.

All of these people on this thread claiming the 950g is worse than the 900f are completely wrong and most likely don't own both (or either) and are parroting sites like rtings who have never reviewed the 75" model. Rting's is great for spec sheet info and objective tests but their "reviews" and scoring system is complete nonsense.

IMO, at 75" the absolute best choice is the 950g. I actually prefer my 55x900e over my 75x900f. The 900f in 75" just doesn't perform as well as I had hoped.
I was at BestBuy yesterday, and I can confirm the 950G is better. I look at both side by side, and while the panel is the same, 950G was brighter, and the new CPU makes a considerable difference when browsing google tv.

100% agree. 900F is great overall TV, the OS is much better and faster with the OS update. But Dolby Vision sucks, way too dark. 950G is much better built and has better features, Dolby vision is outstanding, even better than LG OLEDS ( these lack shadow details). If you can afford, this is great TV for the price.

Yeah the 80 and 90 from Samsung do a great job reflections. But, really? Gaming on a 75" tv? I now some people do it, but, please, those that do generally can't tell the difference between 60 and 120 frames anyway let along being able to detect screen tearing. And the games you'd play on these displays don't actually need the high frame rates anyway. It's hilarious to see posters talking about freesync, VRR, ALLM on these displays as though they're gonna be used for competitive gaming. Besides, gaming consoles don't have the juice to push these displays anyway and you'd need at least a 2080ti to make a dent.
Folks mention ALLM, VRR, and freesync because there were many out there who won't buy a TV without 2.1 HDMI. But those features that we talked about our part of HDMI 2.1. although eARC is missing on the Q80/Q90.

Only a blind person would not be able to see tearing :-)

And thanks for putting down a whole group of gamers telling them that he would not be able to see the difference in frame rates anyway.

Hey, you see that Ivory tower behind you? That's your house. Get back in it :-)

Just an FYI, you're not suppose to ask/tell. Take it to PM.

Competitive gamers ain't playing on 75" screens. And observing that fact is not "putting down a whole group of gamers". Don't be so quick to take offense on behalf of a group of people you don't know.

Further, recognizing that ordinary people don't have 2070 Supers and 2080 Supers or better ain't "putting down a whole group of gamers).

And you'd be surprised at the number of people who don't see screen tearing, especially kids and, again, ordinary people who play for the hell of it.

Focusing on ALLM, VRR, and freesync (and gsync) on 75" 4k tv's are the wrong things to worry about anyway.

And my ivory tower is just as ordinary as the next guy's.

Have you and in what conditions? When you say "lacking contrast" do you mean a significant amount of contrast or just a perceptible difference?

And while several websites say that the 900F has a better picture quality (whatever that mean), there are other that go with the 950G.

It's best to just point people to the owners thread at AVSForums. There's a wide range of user experiences posted there. I ended up going for the 950G over the 900F because 900F is end of life meaning no further updates and, more importantly, I viewed both under multiple lighting conditions and from different angles and ... there's an almost imperceptible difference on contrast while the 950G maintains is color and clarity at even extreme angles.

Ordinary users under ordinary conditions are not going to see the contrast difference. And the blooming in black bars can be controlled via settings, not removed, but improved a lot.
Controlling blooming via setting? You know that for certain? It is evident in defaulted Cinema mode. And I saw videos of calibrated sets with blooming in black bars. So if what I saw was "controlled," then WoW.

Blooming is pretty bad.

Don't get me started on the stuttering. Avs forum owners thread is awash with stuttering complaints.

900F has better motion control. Sony dumbed it down on the 950g.

Yes, control blooming via settings. One need only to read the owner's thread at avs forums to see the specific settings to be adjusted. Blooming is not eliminated, but it is reduced per those guys.

You saw videos of calibrated sets? Pictures of displays and videos of displays always exacerbate blooming.

And you won't start in on stuttering (whatever that is) because you have no experience with the tv's. In the 950 owners thread, the complaints about motion are limited to those who had the 900E displays and they complain that Sony dumbed down the 900F and 950G. And even those guys acknowledge their high sensitivity to motion. Meanwhile, there's a whole lot larger number of posters there who don't see the same motion issues.

In what way does the 900F have better motion control? Specifically?
