Anyhoo, I watched Vincent's review and I loved how excited he was by the TV because I'm all about that HDR too. Not HDR 'pop' for the sake of HDR 'pop' but the difference that high peak brightness specifically makes to HDR viewing is something that I can't imagine doing without, although the mentions of exaggerated blooming and a continued trade off in the blacks are a concern, for unless this is all due to the x-wide filter (grrrrrr) then ~3500 nits on a consumer LCD may just be too much light to manage with such a low zone count.

Not that 700+ zones isn't impressive for an FALD TV, but the 65" ZD9 already has 600+ zones so stretching that out to 700+ on an 85" panel (so it's almost a third bigger but only has like 17% more zones?) doesn't really compute. I'm sure it's still a cracking TV but it may yet carry one too many compromises at such a staggeringly high price point. Get rid of the x-wide angle stupidness, increase the zone count, try to get the gamut coverage to nearer 100% of P3 and give it an in-house tone mapping facility that compresses highlights above its 'native' capability and you'd have the perfect 4K HDR LCD TV.
This whole post pretty much reflects my thoughts, especially the bolded part.

BLNT, Sony...

I'm sure that's in the cards for subsequent iterations. What you're doing is talking yourself into getting the Z9H or Z9I instead of the Z9G.

What Sony will likely say in response to your feature requests is that they could have certainly increased the zone count, P3 coverage, etc. of the Z9G ... at a cost. And the Z9G is already exorbitantly expensive as it is, and you're just asking for Sony to make it even more expensive. They are trying to actually sell this TV, you know. Of course, you would come back and say they aren't going to get people to buy the Z9G with all the compromises you pointed out, and thus we have a catch-22. That's why I say basically your best bet is to sit this iteration out and wait for the Z9H or Z9I.

Sony was good to us and we're allocated two 85" and one 98" Z9G and they are now in-transit to us! We also displayed and demonstrated Sony's 2019 8K Z9G Super Hi-Vision TV at our TV Shootout.

I'm looking forward to having the Z9G on display in our showroom and once supply ramps up I'll bring one home. We're also planning an 8K TV Shootout by the end of August.

Yes, yes, yes. That is major exciting. I can't wait.

Can't do it in July? ...August seems too far away

Thanks Jim, I'd also like to host the 8K event sooner, but we need to wait for LG's 88" 8K OLED to be available.

I know. It's just my childish impulse wanting it now

No one in this world is more childish than me. My wife, Wendy describes me as a kid in a candy store and when I'm totally out of control I'm sometimes referred to as a kid on Christmas morning.
