Do you think it's worth while to pay the premium over the 8000?Quote:

I currently have the UB65F9000 and I had the Sony Xbr65x850a previously.
Take this with a grain of salt as this is completely my opinion.
I would give the Sony the edge in Albeit slightly in black level,
The Samsung has more internet apps and I haven't had any issues with them working. The Sony would occasionally hang and then restart the TV.
Prefer the Samsung smart remote - easier for me to use and backlight while the Sony isn't.
I also preferred the Samsung menus.
Samsung also has a better upgrade path through their One Connect box.
Lastly the screen uniformity of the Samsung was better than the Sony I had but I think it just depends on the TV you end up with irrespective of brand.
Other than the upgrade path of the One connect both are good sets. My only recommendation is to purchase from somewhere you can do an exchange in case you get one with screen uniformity issues.
Forget to mention the off angle view of the Samsung was noticeably better.
If you have any questions please feel free to ask.
Yes, it's the HDMI2 that I'm concerned about. My old set is still working connecting my Oppo player directly to the display. It just doesn't work through my processor.Quote:

If your tv can hold out possibly wait and see what the new Fald sets are like. I don't think you'll get great deals on the 2014 until closer to Black Friday though.
You should be able to score a great deal on a 2013 set now but keep in mind upgradability to Hdmi 2 and the specs for 4k streaming.
Yes, I would prefer Fald tooQuote:

The Sony is supposed to have the upgrade via firmware that I think is supposed to be out already. Not sure if anyone has actually confirmed it is in place and works though.
For sure the one connect box will have it but everyone is speculating it will probably cost another $500.
I would say see what the price you can get either the Sony or the Samsung for. Keep in mind that I wasn't too impressed with the fact the Sony tv kept hanging and restarting. Could have just been a problem with my specific set.
The main thing I hate about the Samsung is the stand (too wide) and I wished it had Fald.

Anyone with experience with these two displays? Is it worth their asking price or better to wait for prices to come down? 2014 models ? new features compared to 13 models.
Thanks for advice. Do you think it's worth while waiting for the 2014's?Quote:

The Sony 55/65 x850a has a glaring design defect in 3D, so go with the Samsung if you have any interest in 3D. If 3D means nothing tp you. then go with the Sony since there's no other brand that is offering uncompressed, full quality 4K content now or the foreseeable future.
See attached photos which I took off my Sony 65x850a. The 3D defect is by design, so there is no fix for it.
