With some tvs it is quite noticeable, and with others, like mine, it is not unless you put your nose up to the tv.
Well one of my friends in the neighborhood has his heart set on getting the 83 incher A90J, so heíll likely purchase thru Robertís VE store with the calibration package added-on if only for an intermediary Q/C step in order to mitigate the hassle of potentially receiving a poor panel from another retailer and having to return it. Seems there were a significant number of people on AVS doing returns.

I noticed the help youíve been providing owners at times over there, good stuff.

I have to suffer at least 5 years or more until Micro-led comes up to get Sony and Panasonic OLED at the thrift stores.
You forgot the 6 Series.

They will likely be entirely sufficient for movie watching at our weekend getaway home and since I watch a lot of sports, superior to OLED for that. Despite OLED disciples constantly bending over backwards to claim the new Sony A90J is so bright and elitist attitudes to mastering levels for SDR, I feel that LEDs still give the viewer the feeling of being there at the game, much more so than OLED, which remains hamstrung in nits at the top end for reality content viewing like a soccer or football match, even when closing the shades a bit on a Sunday afternoon.

Even though I could close all the shades and draw the curtains to make the room into a bat cave, I refuse to do so on a weekend afternoon, especially if my wife or guests are watching with me.
I too am a big sports fan, and I keep track of the scores @ top and bottom.
One TV for all Movies, and all TV watching for another (2nd) TV.

Now I'm just waiting for my second "jab" ... in HD (High Dose).

So-called "scientific" forum. Some people take their gear seriously, while some of it is "pretense".

Let me make a prediction.

Some that just purchase an A90J, will hear a reviewer like HDTV Test give glowing reviews to the JZ2000, that it's better than the Sony and they will quickly become dissatisfied with what they thought was the best HDTV ever. They will quickly be ready to sell their recently purchased A90J to pick up a Panasonic so they can feel good again.

You heard it here first.

Not here @ forum.bluray dot com; only in scientific forums.
In particular in the UK where Panasonic OLED TVs are available.

Best in what way? Every TV has it's downsides. If though we are talking just in terms of HDR performance, we are still a long long way off having TVs than can come close to faithfully presenting an HDR grade that's anywhere close to a 1:1 of what was in the suite.

And when we can get 2000 nits easy, what happens? Will we all be holding hands singing Kumbaya?

Not a chance. The main argument will shift to processing. And oh boy will the trivial bickering be so much worse than today. But fun

Um...isnít this how itís always done? There are some people out there who literally change their TV at least once a year, all theyíre interested in is the latest and greatest. And as the industry hasnít yet tired of updating TVs year after year after year (unlike BD/UHD players, lol) then there will always be some **** with more money than sense willing to take the latest model off their hands.

Kris Deering noted that the ZD9 could show 1000 nit content in “1:1” fashion, but despite it hitting 1800 nits peak at its (calibrated) brightest the colour volume runs out of steam at about 1200 nits. But as a lot of content is still on or under 1000 nits (which I’m not complaining about, given my personal HDR tastes) then it means the ZD9 is still a startlingly relevant TV five years on, greatly helped by the addition of Dobly which overcomes said mapping issues. Without the addition of DV I’d prolly have sold it ages ago but I’ve had mine for four years, can’t believe it’s been that long already.

I don't doubt the Sony A90J is the best in most areas, with the exception of gaming features, that go to LG. LG apparently has decided to corner the gaming TV market. Gamers prefer LG OLEDs, videophiles prefer Sony and are willing to pay a premium for it. The Sony gets brighter than most OLEDs while still maintaining deep blacks, shadow detail, and color accuracy. It is that regards that it is the best TV.

Sony has a history of periodically knocking it out of the ballpark. The Sony Trinitron tube TV, the Sony Qualia LCOS RPTV, the Sony Z9D LED and now it appears they have done it again with Sony A90j OLED.

I really wish Panasonic OLEDs were widely available. Panasonic made the last great Plasmas and probably the last great UHD blu players.

I kept my 65E6 even after I got my 65A90J. My E6 is still the cleanest OLED panel I have ever owned or seen. No burn in. No banding all the way down to 1%. No tint whatsoever. No grid. No vignetting. It belongs in a museum so people can actually see what a perfect panel looks like.

When they finally get hair numbers 735 and 736 in section 241, subsection 682 of Gandalf's beard in Fellowship right, then we'll talk. Until then it's all crayons.

Exactly, because they support 3D.
