Hi there, all. I have a few questions on the analysis of this set vs. a few Samsungs.
First of all, let me say I've enjoyed reading (and reading, and reading) this thread!
I'm hopefully a soon-to-be owner of the 55W900A. Several days ago I posted in another less travelled but very specific thread about the 900A compared to the Samsung UN55F7500 (about $500 less). I'm getting the impression there is no comparison. Did anyone else consider this set? I got into that whole area because I can get that Samsung in a 60-inch for about $100 less that the 900A. After reading for several days here and elsewhere, I think the 7500 Samsung would be a mistake.
I also got drawn in at both Best Buy and a local retailer to the Samsung UN55F8000 ($2500 in the 55 inch and $2800 in the 60 inch). That set is amazing looking in form. I have an unexplainable dislike of the stand. I'm a minimalist and to me in conflicts badly with the ultra thin frame and sleek back of the set itself. Anyway, in store the Samsung is quite a bit brighter, but the 900A looks more rich. Feels impossible to tell, though.
I guess my questions are: 1) Should I forget about the Samsung 7500 all together? 2) Assuming I can get past the aesthetic of the frame, is the F8000 worth the extra $500, or is the 900A not only cheaper but a better overall set?
Thanks so much. This has been a big project. Had to reset the furniture layout of the living room to accommodate a larger set. Our 46 inch Samsung is moving up to the bedroom, and the bedroom 40 inch is moving down to the hearth room, to help settle the nightly first floor disputes in who gets to watch what. Of course the furniture move triggered an awesome new cabinet purchase and I was quite pleased with myself when I successfully installed a new jack for the satellite and ethernet in the new location without any outside help! Dish guys are coming out Saturday to upgrade us from the 722 to the Hopper.
Appreciate any comments and sorry for the outdated user name (from when I joined in 2006!) Can't figure out how to change it!
One more thing: any thoughts on pricing as we approach black friday and beyond?
I exchange my first w900a cause I saw some clouding to samsung f8000. Samsung had great picture dont get me wrong but I switch it right back to the w900a. Even though it had clouding the picture quality and color gamut was too good to give up on. Videos pop on the w900a. Its really good. I hope 2014 brings it on.
And for black friday it think ill stay at 1999 its a high end tv. But you ll be able to price match it to $1800 at least
