It seems that the motion on the J9000 maybe slightly better , can't really tell due to mainly watching Comcast cable and both sets freaked out every now and then on some motions. The JS9000 has better sound too, not sure if the JS8500 has the extra woofers. I'd be curious now to compare them side by side in stores now.
After buying and returning a defective Sony 65" 850b I kind of had my heart set on the upcoming Sony 65" 900c. But I wandered into our local Sears store the other day and they were showing a 55" JS9000 with all brand-new true 4k demo clips. The picture was absolutely fantastic, truly mesmerizing. And now I'm seriously considering the JS8500 flat screen model, but if I may, I'd like to ask some questions about that unit, and about SUHD.
The one caveat regarding the SUHD demos I've witnessed is that they are just naturally set to something like Vivid, for store-display purposes. (As far as I can tell, all TVs are.) The bad side of this is that colors like red, yellow and blue on SUHD models are much too saturated, and are not life-like. Am I correct in assuming that these can be properly adjusted for home viewing while still maintaining their true color shades?
Also, the model I looked at, as I said, was a 55" JS9000. Because the 65" 8500 is ten inches larger and doesn't quite have the specs of the 9000, how close might its picture quality be as compared to what I saw at Sears? BB of course has a 65" 9000 showing the usual 4k demo clips, and they look great (if oversaturated) but I'm curious how the 8500 stacks up in comparison. If its quality is close to what I saw at Sears for the 55" 9000, then it looks like that's the TV for me.
Thanks for all responses.
