ZD9 is priced too high at the moment. Especially considering that even DX900 is less expensive. I am sure the price will drop at some point, but come on - it is in direct competition with the LG E6, and I, for one, wouldn't consider the ZD9 if I could get premium OLED at the same price.
You of course pay for the more advanced backlight control system, but whereas Sony (and Panasonic) would like to tell us that these multizoned devices are a brand new tech we have seen similar products before. Yes, there are a lot more zones, but you don't need "a lot" you need "a tremendous amount" to really compete with OLED.
I have stopped expecting awesome new features in Android TV and settled with stable and functional.
I don't understand your comment with HDR-content? I wouldn't expect Netflix to run better on e.g. UB900. Netflix is transmitted in 4K, so what "engine" are you thinking the player should use - it doesn't need to upscale, deinterlace (and bl... well not do any noise reduction or similar!) to the image?
