I had planned on putting in Sony's HX950, but unfortunately Sony has discontinued that model. So our choices are the 4k UHD X900A or Sony's highest end 1080p full HD W802A.

The dilemma is that the Shootout has only flagship series, but if we put the X900A it will be the only 4k UHD panel in the event and that's kind of unfair to all of the other displays.

My tentative decision is to put the highest-end W802A 1080p on the Shootout wall to compete with all of the other 1080p displays, but to also have the 4k UHD X900A on an adjacent wall just to show it off and do a brief comparison with the same Shootout wall content, but not to include it in the Shootout evaluation.

I can't post on AVS Forum or HDJ, but I will post this on Blu-ray.com and HTS as I would love to have as many a/v enthusiasts' feedback as possible.

Thanks for your help.

-Robert

Boo. This is really a let down for me and many others. Whoever win this testing needs an * by its name. Again. Boo

Well with just 7 days to the Flat Panel evaluation we just received our two 65" ZT60s this afternoon. I actually met the plane from Tijuana Mexico on the JFK tarmac to load the precious cargo into our waiting company van.

Of course, I immediately started the break-in slides so we can have as many hours on these displays as possible before our panel of expert calibrators do their magic.

I'm anxiously looking forward to this event.
My only question is: Who was responsible for selecting the framing bezel ....Holy crap would that be distracting, why would they select a shiny silver surround ??

Hopefully that is protective tape. No manuf could be that stupid. If so. Get out the black tape.

Robert, is that a protective sealant over a matte finish silver bezel ?

Robert, what is the actual size (width dimension) of that bezel. Sorry for being a PIA. In the photo you posted it look enormous but now I'm noticing your picture was very close ( which is deceiving) Again sorry for being a PIA.

BTW wine shopping completed.

ZT60 chrome trim is 1/4", on the VT50 chrome trim is 3/16". So it's only 1/16" larger. The ZT60 trim design is slightly different this year.

Robert, viewing one of the first ZT60's in the country, lucky guy. I'm looking forward to next weekend.
