    Where to start...I guess Ill get this disclaimer out of the way first. I am a Best Buy employee. In fact, I work in home theater and stare at these guys all day. I guess I came into this with too high of expectations...the 950g uses the same processor as their oleds and they are also paraded as the best processor for motion on the market. So when I hooked this baby up, I expected glass like panning shots. This is not the case. The judder is pretty horrific...even after adjusting the motion settings for a while. This is coming from someone whos main TV is an LG oled (which has horrible judder on cable if you didnt know). That being said, I only noticed very very minor blurrung in general so that part holds true. Now a positive...the color is FANTASTIC!!! Easily the best pre-calibrated color on the market imo. This leads me to my next HUGE Negative...the bleed is horrendous. Yes I know full array TVs have blooming and the 950g is no exception to that but blooming moves around depending on what scene; bleeding normally does not. Could this be a defective panel? Sure, that stuff happens. I had to go through 3 oleds before i found one that didnt have any issues (not relating to backlight since oleds dont have one, just trying to say I am a bit picky...but these tvs arent 200$ and I expect them to be what I paid for.) Normally the above issue wouldnt be a problem because I would just take it back...but as someone who never owned a Sony before, this is not a good first impression. Especially for the other few issues after hearing all the hyoe about it at work and by reputation. Sometimes blacklight bleed can work itself out and improve and because of this I am willing to increase the raiting if that is the case. Ps. Kind of rustled by the motion fact since that was what I was taught and points I made when I sold TVs. Makes me feel like I lied to my customers...hopefully a firmware update may improve this or more tinkering with the settings. (Will update if so)

    Had to return this tv. Only 4k content is acceptable. I’m sure I got a good one. Local 1080 hd, 720 and 480 were unwatchable for me. All these 5 star reviews must be comparing this to a Walmart tv. I ordered an A9G OLED instead. My 2016 930D 55 inch and KDL40EX640 from 2013 look way better than this. Maybe the 55 inch model would be ok. But if you step up to 65 inch 4k is not enough. You need OLED or 8 k for that size.

    The picture is not as sharp as the LG TV. There is frequent flickering which is annoying. The most frustrating problem is when the A/V go out of sync. To get the A/V back in sync I have to switch channels or stop and then restart the program.

    Our TV has a great picture, but the lip movements are not in sync with sounds coming out of the mouths. Is very irritating.

    Over priced for picture quality. Sound is terrible. If you buy naked sure to get a sound bar.
