I am thinking of retyrning the 75f8000 to get the 4k65f9000. This will be my only tv purchase of this size for the future and I dont want to regret not getting 4k when I could have. But will it make a difference on a 65" set?
Yeah, it'll make a difference on the 65" set, depending of course on seating distance. The nice thing about the F9000 is that it's "future-proof" to a certain extent. As far as I know, Samsung is the only company to have a concrete HDMI 2.0 upgrade plan. Sony is promising updates, but they will most likely involve making an appointment so a technician can replace the boards, as is the case with the new boards required for the FMP-X1. I like that the Samsung is user-upgradable. The OneConnect box and Evolution Kit are pretty neat.
Don't buy a 4K TV thinking that you'll reap all the benefits immediately. It's going to take time to get standards sorted out and even longer for content to begin appearing. However, if you're the kind of person who keeps a TV for a good chunk of time (4+ years), I think it's a no-brainer to go with 4K at this stage over a standard 1080p set. It's definitely a premium product right now, and you're paying quite a bit for those extra pixels, but it's worth it.Edited by BrianMundt - 8/12/13 at 4:30pm
