I definitely considered the sony 950, but it basically wasn't available to me locally. full array LED did seem like the best fit for me. I like extremely deep blacks, don't really care/notice motion blur, and despite the nearly non-existent IR, it's still kinda nice to not even worry about it.
if you can get the sony for the same price as the vt60 or f8500, I would definitely do some side-by-side comparisons before deciding. but I don't think i'd pay more for the sony. now that I've had the f8500 for almost a month, there's not really anything I want to be better, realistically. I mean, it could be blacker, but everything could be.
