What is the input lag for this set? Also, I've seen some concerns about motion blurring. The TV would be used for gaming, so poor input lag and motion performance could be an issue.

Thank you! I'm new to this, so any advice will be much appreciated.

As for lag input check out this site: it won't let me link it so display lag (all together) dot com

Thanks Nikki. I checked DisplayLag before posting, but was unable to locate any results for this TV.

I have given up on waiting for OLED at this point. I have a newly built media room and need a TV I can hang on the wall and be happy with for a while. My budget was $5k for a TV. I can get a 75" Samsung U8550 for a hair under $5k or I can stretch the budget to $5600 and get the Sony. The Sony is bigger and has passive versus active 3D. However, the Sony has those ugly speakers on the side I won't need with a surround sound processor, and may be less future proof as the Samsung has the One Connect box I can buy should things change next year. I have also read their implementation of Active 3D is pretty good. I have not and don't expect to watch a great deal of 3D so not sure how much of a factor that is. We will sit about 9' away from the screen and I plan on streaming 4K some as it becomes more available. Any thoughts on whether one or the other is a better TV for our purposes??

Thanks for any thoughts!
Those speakers are a deal breaker for me. What was Sony thinking? I would go for the 8550. It has great reviews.

I like the idea speakers on the Sony 900. They give you the option of just using TV speakers to watch the nightly news or using your HT speakers for Blu-Ray. Honestly, surround sound is wasted on most of my TV viewing.

The Samsung is a great choice, but don't toss the Sony under a bus just because of the speakers. It seems to me, your TV choice should be based on the whether you like the video or not. I happen to like the Sony video a hair more than the Samsung. However, that was on the 65" models. The 79" Sony uses e a different panel, so it may not have as good contrast as the 65". However, it will also offer a wider viewing angle and a few other benefits of IPS panels.

Edit: I actually don't know if the Sony 79" TV has different contrast or colors. I just glanced at the big screen, saw the price and moved on. I spent a lot of time comparing the 65" models and really liked the Sony more.

Currently still using the Panasonic TC-P42G10 plasma I got 4-5 years ago. How does it stack up with the TVs out now? Seems amazon dropped the prices of a bunch of TVs today for Black Friday... any TVs 40"+ under $600 worth looking at? Or should I just hold onto my Plasma for another year?

Much thanks!

Agree speakers are a negative. The Sony price I have been offered is only $600 more than for the Samsung so I am leaning toward the bigger TV. The reviews give the nod to Sony by a hair for picture but they don't mean much due to panel differences. Sigh. Wish there was good feedback on the 79" panel. I am trusting the seller's recommendation which may be foolhardy.

I just bought a 70" Sony W850B TV via Amazon for $1850. I panicked, as it said 2 left in stock and this was the only 70+ TV that was Smart and had 3D for under 2500.

I'm not sure about this set after doing further research. Is there a better option for a 70 or 75 inch smart TV for $2500 or under?

OTOH I think a 4K set can be useful as a large PC monitor if you have a video card with the power to push 2160p/ 60 and a set that supports it or even 2160p/30
that most 4K sets support today .

Broadcast , cable/ sat is HD lite and not really true 720p /1080i/1080p TV aren't mfrs put the cart 4Kway before the horse even before the standards were finalized a lot of 4K sets today won't be able to take advantage of HDR (the main benifit of HDR and 4K as opposed to pixel count ) desperately hoping to sell more sets that's all. The KDL48W600B should be decent anyway good luck with whatever you decide.
What are the 4 or 5 sets capable of displaying full HDR? I was under the impression the mythical vizio R was going to be the first... With dolby vision anyway.
