      What is the difference between the new Sony XBR-75X940E vs xbr75z9d (2016 model)?   (4 Answers)

        Answer

        For the average consumer, nothing. Technically, the Z9D has more than double the FALD zones, around 600 compared to the 250, which will produce much better black levels with deeper and richer blacks. This will allow less blooming while watching HDR content. Additionally, the Z9D gets slightly brighter than the 940E, which makes HDR content pop a bit more. However, the Z9D is about $3,000 more expensive than the 940E, and for 90% of consumers, not worth the extra chunk of change.

        Looking for advice on purchasing this tv without the extended warranty. Unfortunately the warranty puts this set out of my price range. Would you chance it or get the lower model Sony 900E with the 5yr?   (4 Answers)

          Answer

          By no means, would I pay $6,000 without getting an extended warranty and taking the risk of something happening 14 months after purchase. However, with that being said, you can purchase the TV through the Magnoila section, in store only, and buy a 4 year warranty for about $800. So you will loose a year but also save $400 bucks.

            The 940E supports HDR10 out of the box. Down the road, Sony has promised an update, releasing around December, which will enable Dolby Vision. I believe HLG will also be supported at a later date, however I have not heard of anything regarding Technicolor.

              Answer

              Better contrast due to the full array LED backlighting. The black areas are truly black. It also has a faster processor that allows for better upscaling to 4k-like quality. There are other improvements as well, like sound quality, but the processor speed, and contrast were the biggest reasons why we chose the 940e. We're not disappointed despite the higher price

              They are available nationwide now from various retailers. Paying six grand is not cheap, so if you have not yet, you could open a Bestbuy Credit Card and save 10% on your purchase, saving you about $600.

                Answer

                This is a fablous tv rehardless of reviews. Most people would never see the motion blur that happens. I can tell you that I personally can only see it when stamdimg right next to it and I have to really concentrate on it and I still hardly see it. I notice very little motion blur but to professional reviewers they are way too critical on specs lile that. No one else in my family sees amy motion blur even after I pointed it out. The higher the res to the better it gets. The tv is phenomenal! Best one on the market today in my opinion.

                Hi Lupe, You'll need to connect either an antenna or cable box for watching TV shows. Using a fire stick is also compatible with the TV via HDMI connection. Thanks. ~Ralph
