Any reasons to get a Sony 40W3000 over a Sammy F86?

I now find that the W3000 is within my budget of £1200, and teasingly close to the price of my previous shortlisted F86.

The HDTV Test reviews seem to indicate the W3000 is better but can anyone give me real-world examples of why?

For the short-term I will be mostly viewing SD (Humax PVR9200T) over scart and a PC over DVI-HDMI cable. Eventually I will get HD sources.

Overally the tv is better and the clouding is not as much as scrolling lines of the samsung which has this serious fault.Both excellent but the sony does the click!
