I just found something out that severely limits the usefulness of in-tv 4k streaming. I had my set calibrated last night by D-Nice (great guy). I switched over to the in-TV apps today to watch something on youtube and noticed the picture settings are different. No biggie, I figured, the TV isn't applying the main input's settings to this one. So I unlocked picture settings (I had locked them after the TV was calibrated) and went to adjust it. At least on the 850a, for internet apps, you CANNOT Change the following, frankly essential adjustments:
Also, no dice on changing:
Adv Contrast Enhancer
Auto Light Limiter
Speed Display Preference
Now, thankfully, many of these settings are locked-in as Off, but the point being, you can't fully calibrate your set and then use those settings for IPTV.
Assuming the B series is the same, people will not be able to watch all that 4k content with a calibrated display. How stupid is that???
So, to get back to your original question, I'd save the $ and get the 850a.
