That is the way I am going too. Interestingly I asked a dealer who had both units on display in his shop, and he recommended the Sony over the Samsung, in spite of the Samsung being the one with the higher price.

Apart from picture quality, the dealer recommended the Sony also on build quality and warranty duration. And also compare the smooth "gorilla glass" of the Sony with the sharp edges of the Samsung frame (particularly at the corners).

Get the Sony. I recently bought the 46HX853 after auditioning the Samsung ES8000 and 7000 and i made the right choice, it's perfect for my needs and picture and build quality is simply excellent, it's worth mentioning that all the Samsungs i demoed had backilght bleed/clouding that affected picture quality and was very notceable in the corners of the screen...something to look out for.

Samsung UE55F8000 TV (THX professional calibrated), Dali Zensor 5 7.1 (front presence configuration), Sony BDPS790, Yamaha RX-A2020, Marantz PM6004, Marantz CD6003, Virgin TiVo 1TB, Playstation 4, Playstation 3, WD TV Live, WD My Book World 1TB.

I was a big fan of sony until I used Samsung. Samsung gives so same picture quality as Sony + its software is fast and gives more features at good price.
