So confused... Samsung 55ES7100 vs 7500 vs 8000 vs Sony HX850

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I've been trying to sort through various LED TV reviews. After reading (too) many seemingly contradictory reviews I'm confused on how several models actually compare to each other in picture quality.

I plan to return to the local stores to try and see if I can compare the various sets in person. But I was hoping that there might be a consensus on how some models compare.

Some reviews I saw indicated that the Samsung UNXXES7100/ES7500/ES8000 picture quality was fairly comparable (to each other), while others seemed to say not so much. (I see from the spec's that these models all have differences of course).

One review claimed a substantially better off-axis viewing for the ES8000 only (compared to the 7500 and 7100). Another claimed the ES7500 PQ was very much like the ES8000.

Does anyone know if they see a lot of difference between these? I was hoping to avoid having to pay for the extra 'Smart-TV' options ((which I'm not really interested in) of the 7500/8000 when I only want the (potentially) better picture quality.

Also, is there a consensus on how the HX850 picture quality compares to the ES7500? I see different reviews that have opposing opinions on which is 'clearly better', so I'm guessing the answer is probably 'no' smile.gif

Thanks in advance.

The 850 in 55" is hard to find right now, you may be able to find the 46" though pretty ez. The 7100 has great pricing @ BB right now

I had an 850 but it had a dead pixel and they were out of stock for a replacement. I settled on the es7100 and i just am not that more impressed with it over my d6000. It also has CE dimming that cant be controlled like my d6000. It is off in movie mode but so is the local dimming.

The 850 is definitely better than the 7100. Id say its probably better than the es7500 and 8000 as well.

I think ill be returning my 7100 and waiting for the w900a from sony. I havent decided yet though.
