I'm hoping an authorized dealer sells it for $1799 on Black Friday, so that I can get Abt to price match. I have a PS4 and an Xbox One, and I'm really excited to use both with a new TV!
That's a good question! I spent a good while at several different Best Buys comparing the W900 to the Samsung 8000 they had right next to it, as well as the Sony 550 series right below it. I have to say, the Samsung 8000 is impressive but it is hundreds of $ more expensive. But it does seem the W900 is the closest LED I've seen to plasma color quality. Actually the Sony 550 was not bad at all, and superior in overall detail to the Samsung 7100 series.
The problem is that the W900 runs $1999 at BB and I can get a 70" Sony 550 for a couple hundred dollars more. Since the TV will be mounted on the wall of our bedroom, about 12 feet from our eyes, the extra real estate of the 70" 550 is attractive, and the wife wants it as big as she can get it
, so she can view it without her glasses having to be on. But, man, that W900 is beautiful to look at. I wonder if the 550 series can be calibrated to produce the colors of the W900?
