People can see things differently. Some (probably not on this board) like very saturated colors and don't care if a golf course grass or football field looks like its glowing. That's not to insult them, lots of people do, or stores/factories would make their out of the box TV closer to actual ROYGBIV colors.
I saw the 810, 909 and D8000 at the same store. I was SOLD on the Sony 52HX909. The reduced effect of off angle 3D viewing bothered me, bc I may start watching a movie sitting up, but sometimes I'll lay on the couch and watch on my side. Even when you tilt your head with the Sony 3D, I saw degredation. I didn't see as much difference with off angle/axis viewing, but with the D8000, in my house, and the angle from my kitchen, I though the PQ, brightness and whatever else can be effected in off axis LED/LCD TV viewing wasn't much. I can lay on my couch or tilt my head and 3D is not effected.
The PQ on the 909 and D8000 were different, but both had crappy feeds, they were 30 feet apart, had different lighting, and who knows what kind of adjustments - out of the box, customer changes, who knows. I didn't think that was alone a fair comparison. That said, I thought the Samsung was just unbelievable, I liked the features, the 2D-3D, the number of adjustments, etc.
More than anything, I went in to buy the Sony and walked out with the D8000 and a significantly larger bill. Also, I had looked at many TVs and had paralysis analysis. I looked at the D8000 for 10 minutes and made the decision. I'm not telling anyone to buy anything - everyone has to make a decision. I'm not a plasma hater, a Sony hater or a Samsung fanatic. So this was truly a decision based on the TV.
