I would like to upgrade to a 65" and was going to get the 65ES8000 but after reading all the negative posts regarding the TV problems, I decided, NO.
I then started looking at the Sony 929. Then, the 950 came out and it also has it problems with banding, etc. It is discouraging.
I was also considering (not upgrading in size but in PQ) by getting the 55" OLED when they came out if the reviews were great regarding PQ. But, Samsung and LG changed their minds about coming out this year, maybe 2013.
Yesterday, I looked at Samsung's new 75" ES9000 series and it looks pretty good. (Size is too big for my area)
So, this is my thinking: Either get the Song 65HX950 now (it seems to have less problems) or wait
until 2013 when either 1)
Samsung might have fixed the 65ES8000 or they might produce a 65"ES9000, 2)
Sony produces something more than a re-baged 929 (950), 3)
Not upgrade in size but in PQ when the 55" OLED's come out, possibly in 2013.
What is your thought? I really need some thoughts on what might be a good course of action. The Samsung 55B8000 that I now have is great and doesn't need to be changed. I want to upgrade size but at the same time not in a hurry to make a big mistake.
Your thoughts please.
