Question Samsung KS8000 or LG B6

Hi there,

I'm trying to decide which tv set i should get for my living room.
My viewing distance from the tv is about 9 ft', the living room has some light but its not facing the tv, with that being said, i mostly watch tv after sunset.

Where i'm from the 65" ks8000 costs about 2500$ and the 65" B6 costs about 4000$... yeah i know prices are high here...
The B6 is quite expensive for me but i don't wanna buy something and be disappointed.
Currently i have an old Samsung 46" 6000 series from 2012, and i've always noticed light bleed on dark scenes while watching tv shows and movies like GOT or Interstellar.

I will be using this tv mainly for watching Netflix, Amazon, PS4 and some casual cable for news, talk shows etc...

I thought about getting the 55" B6 but i feel it will be unsatisfying at that distance.

Is the B6 worth another 1500$?

What would you guys pick if you were me?

I wouldn't go for OLED for a 1500 premimum.

What sound system are you using? That 1500 can give you a really good sound system w/AVR, subwoofer which will hold its value and surpass the performance of ANY TV you by 5 years from now.

Likewise 1500 can get you a freaking projector to couple with your TV.


You'll be paying a HUGE premium for an infinitely better set but still not perfect. I'm not a fan of putting my eggs in one basket from that perspective.
