I mean, I could be wrong here but my devs tell me a slightly different story.  

my products thick client has a ton of scaling issues and they tell me they have almost no control to fix it in the application.  apparently starting in windows 8 MS effectively dropped support for win forms.  we'd be slightly better in WPF but windows scales them differently so the protyped mix tech was horrible and the WPF didn't always scale right anyways. 

we're just moving everything to web now and our thick client has a requirement that you can't use windows scaling.   it too fudgy broken. 

for fudges sake my Outlook email is the most broken wrt scaling.

Local dimming is such a bad feature imo. It's cool but I hate how dependent it is on the scene.

I haven't had time to really use my screen but other than that it seems great. The colors really pop. Need to play a game on it.
Sony had some good local dimming tech that they're bringing back.  I'm actually very interested in it.  If the pixels can change almost as fast as a OLED, this might be the T.V. for me.

Sadly your monitor has one of the worst local dimming solutions on the market.

Sony hasn't been doing the best with local dimming. I've generally heard that their local dimming is the best in its class (by number of zones), but they have fewer zones than most of the higher end displays.  The X90J has like half as many zones as a comparable Samsung display that is in the same class.

Mini led looks like it'll change that though.





One thing I will say, between HDR/good local dimming/probably other stuff too, my TV looks pretty good.

On my older TV, the content looks crisp and the colors look okay, but it looks dull.
I don't know if I'd say the difference is worth ~$750 or whatever, but eh.

I vaguely recall what it's called, but their backlight tech that they're bringing back is what interests me.  It was good in that one t.v. that they had.  Though it was only in one.

Sony Backlight Master Drive I assume is what you're talking about.

Yeah, they're bringing it back with their mini led displays (X95K, Z9K)

Yes, this is what has me excited.  Off hand comments on their last T.V. (z9d?) that had it was very impressive.  It looked almost as good as an Oled display.  Coming back with mini led tech makes their backlit T.V. sound really dang good.   Plus it doesn't have that weird blue tint I notice with WRGB Oled displays.
