rumors of a 940D/950D to replace the 950b will be out later this summer, which could include an 85inch size just like the 950b has.

Sony is garbage. The picture does not justify the price.

For $25k the picture better be hologram life like and should be able to wash dishes and fold clothes too.

OP you want Samsung or LG. If you watch any 3d then its LG hands down. If you like gimmicks then its curved samsungs for you.

i
The image quality is about the same across the brands, but there are huge differences in features, that's what you should be basing your buying decsion on.
Samsung is the only 'does everything" TV. It's the only brand that does 3D. It's one of the few that does 444 chroma so it can be used as a computer display. Sony/Vizio and others lack 444 chroma, so they can't be used as computer displays.

Since we are within a month or two for most of the 2015 new 4k releases I would definitely wait. I am excited to see this year's model improvements as opposed to all prior years, at least on paper & specs & a few miniscule reviews from CES & others. This year I plan to retire a Qualia 006 70" behemoth that is 10 years old. If money is not an issue for you within your screen size, based upon what we currently know I would believe any of the below are awesome choices.

As far as what roller11 said about the 4:4:4 chroma and only the Samsung can be used with your computer, I would like to note that my 10 year old Qualia is used with my 11 year old Sony desktop computer every day to watch online content & web pages & anything else a computer does easily. As you can see with the 2 attachments, although my camera does not do the picture justice and it looks pretty good actually for an older HDTV. If not for the light engine slowly going out I'd keep it. I use a DVI to HDMI adapter with a optical for sound to my receiver. Of course with the newer computers you could easily go HDMI computer to HDMI 4k TV. Nearly all HDTV or 4k UHDTV can be used with any computer via HDMI.

Some connections are better than others of course. If you're a purist though by far the best connection from a computer to a large screen 4K would be Panasonic's AX900 4k & the newer CX850 4k as these models have a displayport input. Honestly I wish all brands had this input by now, unfortunately Panasonic screen sizes max out at 65". If you're a gamer elitist then one would need to consider deeper as your needs & mileage may vary IMO. Panasonic upcoming 4k consumer camcorders even add HDR capability to compliment the newer HDR 4k UHDTV's.

My top 2015 choices in order are, although non of which I can currently afford, saving potentially #4 :

1) Curved LG OLED 77" - probable release this quarter, but the HRD version is preferred, release date unknown
2) Flat Sharp Beyond 4k UHD 80" - probable release date 3rd quarter 2015
3) Curved Samsung SUHD JS9500 88" - understanding the Samsung S9 85" is 40g the potential price of this is possibly epic - probable release this quarter
4) Flat Sony XBR-75X940c / XBR-85X950B - probable release this quarter

I believe that I can be useful in this thread. I just did three weeks of research on larger Sony and Samsung TVs. My conclusions are below. For reference, I own a 60 inch 9G Kuro (non-elite) and a 63 inch Samsung plasma from 2009.

1) Sony 85x950b -- FALD and best at everything (motion, color, black, upscaling, ~9,000:1 contrast ratio, etc.) of all sets under $25k. Notes: my budget was absolute max $15k, so I had to look at other sets.

2) Samsung 85hu8550 -- Direct backlit (unlike the other models in its series) but has only 8 zones. Excellent size and fair price. Very good blacks. Very good contrast ratio (~3,000:1). Average color. Upscaled 720p content was quite bad in my opinion. Notes: I downloaded the Sony 4k demo material and played it on the Samsung. Both the color and motion were severely lacking compared to the Sonys using the same material. I went to Magnolia intending to buy this set and walked out without it.

3) Sony 79x900b -- Edge-lit. Excellent color (Sony's knockoff of Quantum Dots). Excellent upscaling. Very poor blacks. Very poor contrast ratio (~1,000:1). Decent motion. Notes: I purchased this yesterday and will likely return it later this week. We were able to calibrate it in the store to make the blacks tolerable but at home in a dark room, it's just not good enough for the price.

4) Samsung 78hu9000 -- I couldn't get past the curve, so I can't help you much here.

There are also new sets coming out this year. There's a Samsung JS88hu9500, which has quantum dots, FALD, but it's curved and will likely cost $15-25k. There's also a Sony 75x940c, which is FALD and essentially is a newer version of the x950 series. That's the one I'm waiting for at this point, although I hope it comes in under $12k.
