With building a new house comes thoughts of upgrading household items and I'm looking at upgrading the TV to align with my vision I have for my lounge.

Seating is going to be approximately 2.4m away from the TV so to best utilise that field of view I'm looking at upping the size to 65" (current tv is a 60"1080p Bravia)

Unfortunately an OLED in that size is more then what I want to spend so after researching I've narrowed it down to 3 TVs being

Sony X9000E
Samsung MU7000
Samsung Q7F

Anyone one here own one of the above and would care to share their thoughts?

The Q7F doesn't seem like much of an upgrade over the MU7000 (bar the quantum dots) which again is a backwards step to 2016s KS8000, so leaning towards the Sony and rtings seem to rate it higher in its category and spec to price ratio it's a better tv for the money over the Q7F imo.

Smart features are not a selling point, I'm more interested in the WCG, panel brightness and HDR goodness.

Before I rush off, can I get a few thoughts on the above.

Thanks

I ended up getting the 65" X9000E, advertised on special for $2998 haggled the rep down to $2699, after tweaking and some calibration this panel is very nice.
