Question Help?

Well,, Its time to upgrade my Sony 47" 729, i love the tv but its just too small now.. Our closest seat to the tv is 10 ft and the furthest away sofa is 15'. I went to Best Buy to look at the Sony and Samsungs on sale in ad. The Sony was the KDL60W630B for 999 and the Samsung UN60H6203AFXZA for 999 or UN60H6350AFXZA for 1199.. The Samsung 6203 wasn't on display, I'm not in a big town, but the other 2 were and looked good but of course were sitting right beside 4k tvs.... FRUSTRATING...

The Sammy was sitting beside the UN60HU8550FXZA for 2300 .. Yes i know its more expensive but it sure looked great on face tones, what a difference. Even on just their best buy feed which is supposed to be 720p unless they lie, they wouldn't do that lol.. The only was only a 55 of course, the XBR55X850B 1799 but a beautiful pic too...

so.. I have had SONY for many many years.. I don't know the difference in features in the samsung and sony models now and only have a couple of very busy days if i buy this week, I would appreciate it if someone could help me out.. Best Buy is no help and I don't really trust a salesman for "real help" anyway, sorry not trying to offend any salesmen that might be here but Ive had bad luck there.. Ive been on this forum for years and always loved it..

2nd... 4k??? I don't mind spending more now IF its worth it in the end.. I don't want to change the tv in a few years again.. So how much will it benefit now, vs the money.. or am i better to buy one of the first models and wait.. and why? IF it matters i have Charter Cable and many of my channels are 720p

thanks Guys, for any info you can give me I truly appreciate it. I have not read up on 4k yet, didn't think it would drop in price so fast and wonder why it has honestly..

OK folks, please help me choose an LCD for around $2K:

Environment:
-Not light controlled (lots of windows, no direct sun)
-daytime to early evening viewing (separate room for night viewing/movies w/ plasma)

Usage:
-Lots of sports
-HTPC connection for streaming/gaming
-console gaming

TV's I'm currently considering:
-LG 55UB8500 or UB9500 (does anyone know if the difference in price is worth it between these two?) these do support 4:4:4 4K@60hz from PC
-Sony 55X850B (doesn't do 4:4:4 4K@60 hz, is there any upgrade path in this tv?)
-Samsung 55F9000 with future 2015 One Connect Box (hopefully will support 4:4:4 4K @ 60 hz)
-LG 55LA9700 with 2014 hardware upgrade (brings webOS and 4:4:4 4K@60hz supposedly)

What should be the favorite from this group? Is there anything else I should consider?

Thanks!!

Back in the market.

Looking for something 70-75". Not for gaming, just TV and movies.

Budget is $1700-$2800.

Leader in the clubhouse after a quick glance around the web is the Samsung UN75H6300A from Costco, but at $2800 it's on the high side of my budget. Pretty spooked by what I've seen in the Sony 850B thread, so that's one competitor out. Anything else that I should be looking at?

Size: 65"
Budget: < $2000
3D: No (As in, I don't want to pay extra for this feature)
Usages: TV (primarily hi-def content (720p+)), Gaming (PS4, Xbox One)

I already have a nice surround setup so TV speakers are not important.

My current TV is a Samsung LED TV from about 4 years ago and I love it. I also have an LG LED TV from about 2 years ago that is noticeably worse quality (admittedly it was cheaper).

I'm biased towards either a Samsung or Sony TV.

Thank you in advance for any advice!
Your choice should be Samsung UN65H6350. The closest alternative from Sony is KDL70W850B that's $100 more than your budget but It's 70-Inch

You have two choices here: Samsung UN75H6350 and Sony KDL70W850B. Samsung UN75H6350 is around $2500.
If you want to try other brands, You can take a look at LG 70LB7100, Vizio M702i-B3, Sharp LC-70UQ17U. But I personally recommend Sony at the first place then Samsung.

FWIW the 70W850B Sony has a decent Samsung S-PVA panel the rest of the 10800p W800/850B models use AUO AMVA panels except the 85X950B that uses a CMO panel .


Above Sony and Samsung recommendations are very good IMO also .Vizio uses Sharp panels that tend to push red and are difficult to calibrate to accurate color from what I've read here at AVS from certified calibrators in the Vizio P owner thread .

I have a 2013 Sony LED and 2013 Samsung plasma no complaints very good pictures on both sets .
