RE: new tv

Demo both side by side & pick what you like best. I personally would go for the Sony.

RE: new tv

I'd get something really cheap for now and wait for 4k/OLED TVs to hit the market. The PQ from OLED is orgasmic, I can't wait my hands all over one of them.

RE: new tv

trouble is with that idea is for most people a 55" 4k oled will be way out of reach of most pockets!

That could be quite a long wait, years for the prices to be anywhere near sensible, even if the picture quality, when you do get one of the things, gives you the mother of all orgasms.

Of the two TVs that the OP lists, I've seen the immediate predecessor to the Samsung, (the UE55D8000 I think) recently, and I was mightily impressed, and this year's model is even better. Yet, I know that the Sony is very special too, and is about £600 cheaper. The Sony apparently has the best black levels of any LED television.

RE: new tv

I auditioned both before buying the Samsung UE55ES8000, I previously owned the Pioneer PDP LX-5090. Found the Samsung to have far better motion handling and the deepest black levels. Hooked up to a high end blu-ray player this TV is the best out there (ay least untill the OLED's are released).

I've a funny feeling this may get said a lot (until the inevitable banning).
