Based on what I've seen so far it comes down to either the 750, 6000, or 8000 for me.


The following specs are taken from these two sites (sorry, site doesn't let me post the links to these).

Samsung's side-by-side feature comparison

Crutchfield's side-by-side feature comparison


Key differences:

- 8000 is the best TV in every measure (true?)

- 8000 and 750 have 2ms response time (6000 has 4ms)

- 8000 and 750 have 240Hz refresh rate (6000 has 120Hz)

- 8000 and 6000 are LED edge-lit, (750 is Fluorescent)

- 750 has the worst contrast ratio 100K:1 (8000 the highest with 5MM:1 and 6000 has 3MM:1)


Some other differences (less important to me):

- internet connectivity

- connections and inputs

- power consumption

- cosmetics


BTW, 7000 has the same specs as 6000 with the addition of internet widgets.


Amazon pricing:

UN46B8000 - $XXXX

UN46B7000 - $XXXX

UN46B6000 - $XXXX

LN46B750 - $XXXX


I'm having a hard time justifying the 8000 price-wise, is it that much better than the 6000 or even the 750? Any other TV you think I should be looking to?


Thanks!!

Your take?

Try to hunt down a 46A950 model and compare it to the others before you buy. The 950 sets are almost all gone and has some the best motion, blacks, and accurate colors ive seen. Throw in a dark scened BR movie and you will see how much of a sleeper this tv really is, it can rival a pioneer elite. Many ppl dont believe it UNTIL they seem them side by side with the same BR playing, its shocking! I have been torn between it and the B750 model (only because it has 240HZ and has the new AMP judder&blurr adjustments, and lets not forget its lower priced too).

Ok, then let's assume for argument's sake that the 8000 wasn't an option.


What would you think of the 6000 vs B750?

i will go for 6000. IMO, i love LED technology on HDTV. It gives vibrant colors and brightness but i can't remember the contrast quality. Also LED use less energy and produce less heat.


LoL

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA OMG. The B750 the worst out of all those options?! No way.

The B750 beats the b6000/7/8


Those edge-lit LCD's are no where close to being considered the 'best'. They do not produce uniform blacks and colors are saturated and unnatural. Why pay for the thinness factor and lesser overall picture quality when you can get the B750 for a much cheaper price and it beats those edge-lit.


First of all, those contrast ratio's are just marketing gimmicks. In reality, those edge-lit televisions are probably really 5k:1+ when professionally tested. 5m:1 is just another way to entice ill informed mass consumers, "HEY since it's a high number, that means it's better and the best!"


The B750 produces uniform blacks and therefore darker blacks and it's rated at 100k:1, go figure!


SO GO FOR THE BEST! AND THAT'S THE B750

Thanks all for your opinions. I think I'm going to go with the 750. Overall, I couldn't tell enough of a difference at the store to warrant the difference in price.


thanks everyone!
