I got the Sony already with passive 3d and its great..really like picture during day, vibrant and colorful. Downside i noticed some led bleeding especially when I turn on the TV on one or two corners and the smart apps are very slow to load up.
The samsung has dual core, with samsung app layout. I hear it is better since it uses galaxy software. So is 600 worth the price to go 5 inches larger with no 3d?

I can't judge at all in the middle of costco with all their lights and stuff.
I saw these two TV side-by-side today and the Samsung F6300 has a much better picture quality. My guess is the F6300 is full array back-lit vs. the edge lit Sony, so the overall contrast ratio is better on Samsung's F6300. I also like the overall design and look of the F6300 and the Smart layout menu is nicer and easier to navigate.
BTW, regarding price, looks like everyone is at $2,899, even smaller specialty shops.
