I've had my Z since August of 2016 and always had a bit of DSE where I could see vertical stripes in solid bright colors but it wasn't all that apparent. Over the past year or so it seemed to have become a bit more apparent and Red Dead Redemption 2 really showed it off with the open blue skies. (I disabled HDR on the Xbox since R* is using fake HDR with SDR in a HDR container screwing up the image.)

I tried the micro fiber cloth massaging tip and it helped immensely. Just gently massaged in circles all over the panel and it was a marked improvement.

When my buddy and I first moved the TV from the stand to my mount, I remember seeing the screen ripple like water even though we were gentle.

So anyway, even if you have minor DSE, it wouldn't hurt to do the massage trick to see if it can improve things.

Lastly, my Steelbook Matrix Trilogy came in this week and this weekend I will be watching all three in Dolby Vision and cannot wait. I skipped through the first and last movie and the picture quality is simply sublime. They had the original DP help grade all of the movies for DV and it shows, it is like watching the movie for the first time.

I am with you. Also jealous.

But to have gotten one, I would have had to sell my house, car, dogs, use my savings and still would have to make payments.

I watched Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom on my 65" last night. The BD. It looked gorgeous.

I often forget how great this set actually is (it is in a separate room I haven't been using much).

Looking forward to watching something else this weekend now

Lol.

Makes me wander what you have in your main room which prevents you from using the Z9D? Should be something really special then.

You should try a Dolby Cinema, your wife would love it.
