    So i have another question up and got help from @Dodgexander but it was a very random thread as i didnt know where to start so ill make this more coherant (cant work out how to close it)

    Im coming from a Hisense 55M7000 which is ok but not great at anything and was a stop gap after previous stopped working.

    I narrowed it down to i want a 65 inch set
    Really good motion handling
    Great picture for normal TV/Streaming & UHD films
    decent (dosent have to be great) HDR again from streaming & UHD
    No gaming at all

    Dodgeexander recommended upping my budget from the £1000 i had originally planned and after doing some workings out i can get to £1500 and i know the XF900 is still more than this but im hoping for a bank holiday deal.

    Is this the best all round i could get or is there something else. In previous question i think i went too much for HDR and maybe should have concentrated on the overall picture.

    There is a reason for this :)

    Most of what you are paying for when you go above the mid range on TVs is HDR performance, there are very small gains elsewhere which make buying a more expensive TV worth it if you don't care so much about HDR.

    The Sony is a new model so it will drop in price over the course of its life. The LG is already fully discounted so represents the best value in my opinion.

    I did a demo of the both and for motion and sports it was a lot better picture on the Sony. The b7 did seem to have a brighter picture but the overall picture on the Sony was in my opinion better so I'll be going with that.
