First time post, long time reader...

 

I have both a TCP65ZT60 and a UN65F9000 and I can't decide which is better for my current setup. Living room TV usually gets used in the day time and than at night for movie watching.  The bedroom ZT60 gets used literally to have something on to fall asleep too and than gets turned off. I work at a Magnolia Design Center and am fortunate enough to have some pretty decent stuff.  I usually swap out my gear every 6 - 12 months but cant decide if i want to place the ZT60 in the living room or bedroom.  This year should be pretty big in regards to 4K and I have all the right equipment to do it.  My ZT60 is my first plasma and I'll be honest its amazing, however, I also believe my 65F9000 is equally amazing. (When playing in 4k) I'm always afraid of burn in especially when the girlfriend leaves the same channel on all day so I decided to put it in the bedroom where its rarely used.  Below are some pics of the setup, and the equipment I have.  Please feel free to chime in and let me know what you would do with what I got! 

 

FYI: TV's are back to back so I am running 2nd zone HDMI to ZT60 to share sources. Future plans are to get 2nd receiver and get a passive soundbar in the bedroom and complete a 5.1.

You would probably rest easier with the F9000 in the living room knowing your wife leaves channels on all day long. I can't see the advantage of one over the other for anything else although how is the viewing on the Samsung in a completely darkened room? Any visible clouding or flashlighting?

Ya that's what I figured and in terms of flashlighting I get none at all. The picture is perfect, dark inky blacks. Only downside is the off angle viewing.
