The arrogance of man is that he thinks can control buying decisions instead of the other way around...

Clash of the 78 (ish) inch 4K behemoths -

Brownie Points (from most accounts - these will be updated as we go along) :

Sony XBR79X900B -

Significantly lower gaming lag.

Radioactive breath.

Better speakers.

Sammy UN78HU9000FXZA -

About $1000 less than Sony

Better 1080 > 4K upscaling.

Curved for increased

Report of significant clouding on black screen:

Bummer.

Maybe a reprieve from the Governor regarding cloudiness:

so not much info in this thread. I can get a sony 79 inch for just under 5k delivered from friends and family promo. The Sammy would be another $2500 based on current promos.

Any one done a hard comparison between the two
