Saw two things of interest yesterday at a BB in NYC.
1) A Sony 60LX900. It was in the Magnolia section running a Sony demo loop. It looked absolutely amazing. It made me optimistic for the PQ on the flagship HX929 for 2011.
2) A Samsung 55D8000. It was not in an environment which would lend itself to analyzing PQ - it was on the wall of the main shop, unlike the Sony which was facing away from the lights inside the Magnolia section - but overall I'd say it looked very good. No flash lighting, good blacks, and potentially great if set up properly and viewed in a proper environment.
I am keeping an open mind and am leaving my 65HX929 preorder in for now. But I will be evaluating expert reviews and calibrations of D8000's and 46/55 HX sets as they hit...
Stuck up, half witted, scruffy looking, nerf herder.
