Hey Guys,

I'm not sure if this is the right place for my question or not... But I'm new here so forgive me..

Anyways here's my question:

I want to buy one of the said TVs either the LG 55LA8600 or Samsung ES8000 55". There's a huge price difference but I can afford both is it really worth going for the samsung? Since I'm from Egypt I'll be using my local prices here the LG costs 15000 and the Samsung costs 20000.

I know the difference is the 3D passive/ active. And the smart voice/motion that the samsung has...

What about the picture quality which is better? What about samsung's "evolution kit"?

In all honesty, I cannot recommend either of these TVs.

The ES8000 has:

1. Poor black level

2. Clouding and flash lighting

3. Banding

The LA8600 has:

1. Very poor black level

2. Non accurate colors

If you want the best PQ I would suggest the Samsung F8000 (2013 version of the ES8000) or the Sony W900. Both TVs have great black levels, great color accuracy and very little to no clouding or flash lighting. The prices for both sets are steadily falling.

looking at specs comparison, both equally good. LG seems to have better price deal,
