The X950G is looking/sounding very interesting based on what little I've heard. Could well be my next TV, we'll see.

Those are very sensible prices!

Hey, that's a great TV you've got there. Above all, the A9F is an OLED while the X950G is an LCD. Different techs with their own advantages and disadvantages.

Any particular reason you'd rather have the X950G, or is it just the price difference?

Mr. Zohn, have you got any of these set up in your store yet? I for one would appreciate it if you were willing to share your thoughts on this TV with us.

Would also be interesting to know what difference the absence and presence of X-Wide Angle makes on the 55"/65" and 75" models respectively.

The X-Wide Angle is only on the 75" and 85" models.

Correct, and I didn't say otherwise:

Absence and presence. On the 55"/65" and 75" respectively. Absence on the former, presence on the latter.

It's okay though, we all misread posts sometimes.

Yes, for now we just have the 65" X950G on display. We have it on our TV Shootout wall butt next to Sony's Z9F.



I need more time to evaluate the X950G and we're adding the 75" X950G later this week so we can see the differences between the different sizes, one with X-Wide Angle Technology and one without.

Again, I'd love to know what you think, especially about how it compares to its big and little brothers, the Z9F and X900F. And of course how the 65" and 75" X950G compare to each other.

Way to go, Sony.

It's like they're deliberately trying to kill off LCD.

Was thinking of getting the 85X950G after reading this in flatpanelshd.com I think I will reconsider the 85X900F better picture.

What a let down from SONY.

So depressing if i get a new tv I loose my 3d. Guess I'll wait a few more years and see how it pans out. Maybe it will come back or I find a deal on a used one.

I saw that. Evidently X-Wide Angle still works the same as it did on the Z9F.

Interestingly, FlatpanelsHD had this to say on Twitter:

Quote:
I don't think Sony sees it as a successor per se but X950G takes over the spot as the 4K LCD flagship - for now at least. We double checked with Sony in February. A9F and Z9F will be discontinued soon.

We don't know what will happen in the second half of 2019.
So the Z9F is already getting discontinued, after being out for like half a year? That's crazy, when you look at how long its predecessor lasted. Maybe X-Wide Angle really sunk it.

Will be most interesting to see what is unveiled later in the year. We know Z9G is coming in 85" and 98", but surely there must be something in the smaller size classes that are more in reach for the average enthusiast?

Two comments, 1st, in our evaluation of Sony's new 65" X950G where we it wall mounted on our TV Shootout wall butt next to the 75" Z9D, 65" Z9F and 65" A9F all of our staff and our professional calibrator loved the 65" X950G. Excellent color fidelity, color volume and color saturation, plus very good black levels.

Tomorrow, we'll have the 75" X950G on the TV Shootout wall and we'll compare it against the 65" X950G and the Z9F.

Regarding MechaGodzilla post above, yes it's true that the beautiful A9F will be discontinued this summer and replaced by the A9G, available in 55", 65" and 77" screen sizes. The Z9G will be an 8K HDR TV available in 85" and 98" screen sizes.

I have little faith in any Sony TV that has the X-wide view tech and that includes the Z9G (in which I actually had an interest). I've been a dedicated Sony fan and supporter for decades, but they can keep that wider viewing angle nonsense until they can make it work with absolutely zero compromises being made in other far more important areas.

This is so sad. Been looking forward to 950G but it seems it’s a 900F with better processor. Might have to check out Samsung Q90. Reviews are promising and might have to give up on Dolby Vision for a little bit.

Man that X-Wide Angle tech is really not doing these displays any favors, feels like traditional FALD LCDs are given less and less priority and more attention is being given to these Mini/MicroLED displays. Buying a high-end TV right now that's not an OLED seems like a real crapshoot to me, at least OLED is a fairly well known quantity by now. Good things come to those who wait I guess.

Hopefully.
