It is a decent TV as far as I am concerned and it does 3D really well, but 3D movies are only 3.5% of my total library. I want something bigger and better for the other 96.5%.

Hell yes, 4K TVs did the best passive 3D I've ever seen in a TV.

However those 2016 edge-lits, specifically the UH850x series in what they were promising vs. what they delivered featured middling HDR performance and poor local dimming. Screen clouding and light bleed was also seriously problematic, but this varied vastly between different TVs of the same model so maybe you were lucky there. If you are unaware of how limited you've been, prepare to be amazed by a good 4K TV, FALD LED or OLED. It really goes some way in softening the blow of losing 3D support on your main TV.

I have my premium Panasonic 3DTV sitting in the spare room. I told myself I'd set it up for watching 3D titles. I told myself I'd build up my collection from 35 odd (currently) into the 100+ range.

But, really, more time I have a 4K TV in my own home, and barely enough time each night to watch 2 of an always present UHD disc back catalogue, the less likely 3D feels like it'll be nurtured -- Issue is the seconds market on Plasma here is kind of lackluster so selling also a poor option. No one values 3D

I wouldn't say "no one"; I value 3D enough to have 274 3D titles in my collection and definitely enough to retain my current TV for the purpose of watching them.

3D discs are still being offered although I find that I am importing most of them because they are more affordable to import from the U.K. than they are to buy domestically.

3D was my motivation to finally modify one of my blu-ray players to be region free although being region free certainly has more benefits than just watching 3D discs from anywhere.

I want a better TV because even though I really enjoy 3D, they are a tiny part of my overall collection. Someday, I may dip my toes into the world of projectors as they retain 3D capability and they offer gigantic screen sizes, but that is a consideration for another time.

I made my decision and today I purchased the Sony XBR85X900F. It is an 85" FALD behemoth and it will be the biggest TV that I have ever owned. Delivery is scheduled for the 25th.

Thanks to everyone that replied for all of the advice and I look forward to being told that I made the wrong choice.

I came in $2 under budget, too!

My AVR is likely the next upgrade as it is very outdated, but not before my wallet recovers.

I strongly considered the LG C9. I saw it and the Sony 900F in person. No matter how much I liked the OLED's picture, I could not bring myself to buy a TV that I would have to baby and handle with kid gloves; I feel owning an OLED TV would be a source of recurring anxiety where I would worry about image retention, burn-in, and ABL issues.

I wanted a worry free TV experience where I would not have to be concerned with what I watch or for how long. I wanted a TV that I could allow others to watch without worrying about their viewing behavior also.

The Sony 900F looked excellent to me and I do not have to babysit it. Plus, that 85" screen size is just amazing. I am happy with my choice; it was the right one for me.
