Question 4K Set

Hi all,
Been looking at the different sets, and reading as much as I could on here. But having a tough time trying to settle on a set.
I've looked at the Samsung UN75HU8550, the UN65HU9000, LG 65UB9500, 65LA9700. Not really liking the price point on the Sonys, but also not liking the probs I've seen with the other sets people have reported. I looked at the 65hu9000 in store and watched the Transformers demo, but in a couple of sections of the video there was some weird glitching going on near the bottom black bar. Also the better half doesn't like the curved screen. Any thoughts?

I'm in a similar situation. I've pretty well decided to pony up the cash for the Sony 79X900B. I don't like the price point either (and have no use for the speakers), but I'll sooner forget the money than I would a lesser TV, I think. Though truth be told I'm pretty sure I'd be happy with the Samsung 8550 or 9000, too.

Samsung 8550 is great.

A great list of the best tv deals online. Updated daily. Nice bargains.

Does the 8550 rival the picture of either the Sony 900A or 900B at all?

2800 is a great price point for a 60 inch imo.

I like either the Sony 900b 65 and 79 pr Samsung HU9000 65 or 78. Any of these sets should be excellent choices. With Sony you get the 4k box, I think they are making one soon for all sets.

I have a HU9000 and found it's picture to be amazing for an LCD and I like it's black levels better than my old plasma. Also you may want to go with a Samsung for future proofing as the One Connect box is an easy upgrade giving you access to updated features. Also check out the HU8550 and HU9000 thread on these forums for the latest word on what Samsung TVs are 10 bit panels which will be required to do the full 4k spec. Nothing worse than buying a 4K TV now that won't do the final 4K spec in a year or so.

Samsung UA55HU9000, Klipsch Quintet 5.1, Onkyo TX-NR515AE
