Save your money and forget the "curved" fad. Unless, you are shopping for something well over 70" in size.

I believe I read a review in which the Sony was said to produce a deeper black level which increases perceived contrast. I'm sure they're both excellent sets in their own individual ways but best possible native contrast always wins out in my book. Not sure which has better video processing or the smoothest, most natural looking motion but that'd be another consideration of I were choosing between the two. I'm sure they're very, very close as far as perceived resolution with the Samsung possibly having the smallest of edges in overall sharpness. It'd be great to be able to see them side by side playing the identical 4K material and in similar picture settings. I'd be curious to learn which has better color reproduction. If at all possible, bring a demo worthy Blu Ray disc that you are familiar with you to the store where the sets are, put them in similar picture settings (cinema, THX etc) and see which picture you like best.

Best luck and enjoy whichever you ultimately choose.

The Sony 900 series wins hands down for picture quality according to CNET. But the Sammy UNHU8550 is a close second.

The same could almost be said for 4K. I am only looking for a 55" and stuck between the F8000 and the HU8550. Most of the rave reviews are for the 8550 but is it that much better than the 8000 without 4K?
For a 55" I need to sit 6' or less to see the improvement (or at least that's what I am told).

The curved screen would do in the Samsung for me. I don't like it and don't see the point.




Looking for me, just google my username. I have used the same one for most sites for many years.

The F8000 is last year's model. I like Samsung's 4K UN55HU8550.

However, beware that the price goes from $1,698 to $2,098 on 2/14. So I suggest calling your favorite authorized Samsung dealer this week.

Totally ^^ agree. The F8000 and HU8550 are flat.

I bought the 55" Sammy 8550 for $1599, and zero sales tax from a local store. Great TV for sure. But the 4K ain't no big deal unless you have a huge screen and want to site really close.
