See them in person.
I also think the sony has a slightly better black level. I think that's the only difference to me.
Some say it's the opposite.
Also I want to point out one important fact. The evolution kit. If you buy a sony you will only have that set as is with software updates. No real upgrade to hardware .
The Samsung will continue to evolve and the only locked technology is the panel. The panel can still benefit though from upgrades of the evo kit.
The brains will continue to grow. Hdmi connections, processors, etc continue to grow on the samsung at least 2 to 3 more years.
The samsung can do more right now as far as ratios.
The sony has a great speaker system out of the box. The samsung works well wirelessly with a lot of speaker systems. It has a moderate speaker system out of the box.
The hw h550 soundbar and subwoofer is a cheap way to add great sound to the samsung.
Samsung offers - a great picture that equals the best in clarity.
Upgradable brains and 3d performance is the better of the 2.
Sony offers elite black levels. Wonderful motion for gaming.
A great sound system out of the box that only need a sub for a complete home system.
Both look the same as far as 4k content.
The sony has a slight advantage with motion when upscaling older content. And broadcast.
Blurays look the same upscaled on both.
Good luck. Neither is the wrong choice. Both are magnificent.
I love my hu9000. Would do it all over again.
