    I was going to say something similar. I paid $9K for my Z9D two years ago, and I know the price has dropped since then. I wonder how much better picture wise the Z9F is.

    I knew it was coming and I got a decent price. But keeping up with TV technology is like trying to catch a falling knife.

    I just got the LG 65" OLED and I have to agree with the bright room concerns. I wouldn't say my room is that bright, but right now that room is a little brighter than usual because we're getting new window coverings and the shades that are staying don't quite do enough. I can increase the brightness, but then the whites begin to wash out. And I also have to say that picture quality is SOOO dependent on content. Anything truly 4K when the room is darker can be phenomenal. I never realized there could be so many shades of black!

    Re: It was time for a new TV

    Congratulations Mike, you bought a great set. I've been happy using the Sony 940D for two years now. The set will show it's best when you view 4K UHD with HDR content. These sets are dynamic as mentioned. I was amazed the first time a bright scene popped in after a dark scene I couldn't believe the output. I think you will be happy with it in daylight viewing. They upscale nicely also. Many have said both their DVD's and Blu-rays look better thru the Sony's scaler.
