Samsung ES8000 vs Sony HX929

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I may be upgrading to a new TV soon, and after a lot of research I've narrowed it down to these two TV's. I'm looking for any insight the AVS community might have on the decision before I pull the trigger on the purchase.

My thoughts on the two sets:
The Sony has the backlight LED set up rather than edge-lit, which I'm definitely a fan of.
Reviewers had mostly nice things to say about this TV
Price is a little higher, so I'd be stuck with a smaller screen

The Samsung has a lot of great features including a super thin design
I don't particularly care about gesture controls / voice commands
I've seen a lot of negative customer reviews on sites like Amazon due to technical issues (firmware problems, and screen problems)
The price is a little better - might be able to go with a bigger screen
I currently own a Samsung LCD, and I've been happy with it.


I'm open to other suggestions if anyone knows of a third option I haven't considered. The only caveat I'd put to that is that I don't want to go with Plasma - I know IR and burn in aren't the epic problems they used to be, but I don't like the idea of IR, even if it only lasts a few minutes.

Thanks in advance for any recommendations, info, or suggestions you all have.

Sony for PQ, Samsung for whiz-bang features. Your old Samsung lcd is probably a lot better than the ES8000 as far as freedom from flashlighting and clouding.
