Merkey curious to think about your opinion on the Sony since you had both the F8000 and F9000. I went back to trade in my F658000 for the Sony 65X900 but did not like the colors of the x900. (my opinion) Red's were too over saturated vs the other colors. Picture did not look real to me. Heard people seem to like the x850. Please post your thoughts if you pull the trigger on the Sony. I myself am going to wait it out on 4K. Thank God my F8000 is working fine for over a month now.
In the Sony thread 1 person has said they think the matte film on the screen ruins the x850. I don't know for myself but. But you can edit the x900s settings to get the desired color. You don't have to stick to the out of the box settings. I honestly feel the Samsung was a rip off and I didn't see any improvement in picture quality over the f8000. I asked my wife and 2 others and they all prefered the f8000 over the f9000! And me being a tech geek and knowing what should be the answer I was like are you sure??? I was disappointed with the TV and the haloing/glow plus Im over the way they back light the sets. Its very hard to watch moving scenes in a movie and you can see back light discrepancy. I recommend avoiding them. But this is my opinion and everyone is different.
