What is this samsung? If it's the 4k, it gave me a head ache in 3d...
Also the simulated 3d, did not make me very hard.
this topic has been beaten to death ...especially if you go to the XBR 900 thread.
Everyone concludes the following :
1. the x900 is the best tv to date
2. the passive 3 d and simulated 3d are AMAZING.
3. THE 850 lacks "pop" "wow" INTENSITY.
4. passive 3d is soo much better than active.(flickering, head aches, expensive glasses, batteries)
I have not seen the Panasonic, but The x900 beats all the other 4k tv's hands down.
Well both my wife and I feel motion sickness after 5 minutes of watching active 3d. We get it worse on the samsung tv's.
We both watch passive 3d at home...no problems what so ever.
Apparently Vizio's passive 3d is also extremely good. Not many tv's have the passive system.
I have the W900A purchased for 2k when on sale, hard to top it. Had a X900 and my issue is cosmetic. All the beauty rings around the speakers look cheap and scratched up right out of the box. Put a good flashlight on them. Looks like they were installed by a 2 year old. Really Sony on a 4K TV ? That's all you could come up with ? When will they quit using piano black plastic that scratches when you look at it. I returned it the X900. I also have a XBR 950 another hard to top set. When I watch the W900A I have a hard time justifying the 4K. I ordered the X850A, will see.
Gotta agree. I had an XBR-55HX950 that developed some stuck/dead pixels (a whole bunch of them) in the middle of the TV. Nice, eh? God I loved the black levels on that full array, local dimming TV. Anyhoo, life goes on. Sony offered XBR-55X850A as a replacement, which I received a few days ago. Could not believe, still can't believe, that Sony replaced my high contrast (full array, local dimming) model that was a monolithic design (solid gorilla glass front from corner to corner) with this X850A. For those that don't know, the X850 picture is rather dull and not all that bright actually, not compared to my outgoing HX950. And the bezel is plastic actually. Oh, and the screen is matte, like a cheap old-school computer monitor. And it does definitely lack pop. I've been comparing it not only to the HX950 I just had to part with but with the X900A in the local store. After many many hours on the phone with Sony regional and national over the last several days, and after paying a few hundred dollars extra, I finally am having the X850 swapped out for X900A. Having the glass design aesthetic of X900A with opticontrast panel (not deep black panel) and passive 3D beats the plastic, dull looking matte finish of X850 any day. Also, any one else surprised at the on/off switch on X850A? - to me, it sounds kinda cheap.
OK I picked up 2 PS4s. One is hooked up to my KDLW900A and the other to a XBR55X850A. If I turn on off the 850A it automatically turns off the PS4 and makes it check the HD when it boots back up and warns me about unplugging the PS4. I have checked and the HDMI sync is turned off on both the PS4 and the 850A. My W900A is set up the same way and doesn't auto shut off my PS4 through HDMI.
I flipped systems and its the XBR that is the culprit. Even with everything, off it shuts down my PS4, annoying. Ok yes answer is simple, turn off PS4 1st. But I'm OCD and that doesn't work for me. So I guess at this point it leads me to believe my XBR is not disabling the HDMI sync.
With the PS4 off and turning on and off the XBR, I can hear the PS4 power switch clicking every time I fire up or shut down the PS4. Not the case on the W900.
Any answers ? I'm stuck.
