That depends on where you live and some other factors. Is that an out the door price?

BTW, there's no such thing as a 2013 F8500 vs. a 2014 F8500. It's the same TV. Some were made in 2013 and...

It has a deinterlacer to display 1080i if that's what you're asking. The panel is a 1080p panel. Everything it displays is ultimately converted to 1080p.

No, I'm implying that we shouldn't get too excited about something that isn't available for sale yet as if it's going to be the answer. For all we know it's going to be a turd, not the UHD savior.
