I'm thinking of these sets as equivalent:
LG OLED65B6P (OLED)
Samsung UNK65KS9800 (FALD)
Sony XBR-65X930D (FALD)


The first two cost around $3200 (currently) which than I paid for the F8500, and ST won't let me upgrade (would be nice if they just gave me a store credit for $3K or $3K less depreciation).
The Sony XBR is around $2000. - Seems too cheap (in price) be in the same class as the F8500.


Any comments or suggestions?
Tell them to go F themselves with that slap in the face POS tv they are offering. They will probably only offer you a Samsung(because that is what you own), so as it is they should be offering you a JS9500, KS9500, or KS9800. Those are the only equivalents Samsung sells or is still selling at the moment. JS9500 is last years model, but plenty should be available and its the only one that still carries 3d which F8500 has.

To add they are offering a $1000 tv to replace a $3000 television? There is a reason you put a warranty on such an expensive item. It was to replace what was lost if something bad happens. They are trying to rear-end you man and I would be waging war if I were you.

Samsung 60F8500
Samsung 51F8500
LG 55EG9100
LG 55LHX(retired)
LG BH200
Sony BDP-S5200 Multi-Region

Thanks for suggesting some replacement idea. That helps.
I was expecting a low-ball offer. The Square Trade replacement policy says they can only provide a replacement set (not cash/credit) but all the equivalent sets (the LG OLED, and KS9800, etc.) are a few hundred dollars more than I paid for the F8500 (damn the sale price). So I may be stuck with a lesser TV.
I'll check the specs on the three sets you mentioned.
I believe only OLED or FALD will come close to the picture quality of the F8500. Do you agree - or are there some Edge Lit displays or others that I should consider?

ONLY will the OLEDs and FALDs be close in quality.

If so...I think the LG OLED makes sense for something they should offer you

I think the Sony X930D is edge lit?

Yes. The 64" F8500 was $3000. But the Square Trade warranty I got (the highest $ plan) is for TVs from $2,000 to $2999.99) so I can't expect more.

I have had them send me a check for an item before...a computer
So I am very surprised that they dont offer you the upper limit of your warranty amount in a check

If they do..OLED would be the way to go
For a few hundred bucks more..in many ways it a much better TV than the F8500

I am not a huge fan of Samsung FALD set...this years or last years
Now the Sony Z is another matter...but that one is $5K for a 65"

ST is now offering me a Sony XBR-65X930D as a replacement. I thought this set was FALD but I learned that is not. Still it sounds like a pretty nice TV.
Any thoughts or comments on this?

The repair company Square Trade sent out replaced the power board and the HDMI board neither of which repaired the TV. Pretty sure its the Y-Sus board based on the other thread that goes into detail about it.

Now I'm waiting for a phone call to see what they want to do.

Personally, I don't see a current set that I'd like to get. The OLEDs are crushing near black which I'd think would be terrible for some content. The premium Z9D has viewing angle problems typical of LCDs.

Not sure what's going to happen but given how Samsung has phones that catch fire, exploding washing machines, and TVs where you can't get needed repair parts not long after being sold, I'm going to try to avoid getting anything else Samsung.
vavan and bmcn like this.
