I really wanted this tv and thought it looked absolutely incredible but noticed the demo mostly showed still pics. I ended up watching life of pi 4k at the bestbuy magnolia and the general consensus from the sale staff was that the motion was jumpy and kinda lousy on the tv especially for $6999. I was still on the fence about which tv i wanted and best buy ordered me a rose gold samsung so i could compare it to the sony. they unboxed it and set it up right next to it and played avatar. Trust me i really wanted the sony!!! but the samsung had much better fluidity with the action scenes and the sony just looked jumpy and strange. If you guys look at the demo reel in 4k that sony plays on a loop on that tv youll notice its mostly still pics and they show a soccer game briefly. watch the soccer ball when it moves it looks really strange. My question is this, why would sony give this tv such a poor refresh rate of 120hz and what would you do? Im leaning toward the rose gold because it appears to be the better tv overall dont get me wrong the sony is incredible but the motion thing is bad.
