Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb product I barely write reviews, but this TV is outdistancing in so many ways, I can't wish for anything better! OLED technology is the only one you should Invest your money into! it will give you a very pleasant/vibrant picture experience. One drawaback, that I can mention is 3 HDMI ports.. I need 4 to connect all of my devices to it.. it's manageable, but tad inconvenient. I'm sure not everybody will run to this problem, but I did..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I could wait for the HDR model but this TV rocks Every day I amazed how wonderful this TV looks. Blacks are spot on, the colors rich, a solid build. Only draw back is the motion blur, but 90% of the time you never notice

Rated 5 out of 5 by from UNREAL quality This TV has incredible picture/quality/lighting. The overall size, thinness, and build quality is unlike anything I've seen at this price-point. The ONLY thing I wish was added to this TV is to have the USB/HDMI/audio output mirrored on both sides so as to make adding external outputs a bit easier to route wires.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Picture uniformity issues This is my second 9500. First one had terrible uniformity issues with dark scenes. Was able to get replacement from Best Buy and followed the suggested settings from CNET. Picture was much better than set up that was done by BB on first TV. I have had this TV for a couple of months and am seeing the black uniformity issues again. Very frustrating, happens from different sources such as cable, Apple TV, and Netflix/Amazon through web OS. Is this a known issue? Thinking about having BB replace this with the B6. Appreciate any insight you can provide...
