    Hi All

    Looking to buy one of these screens but really stuck on which to choose, John Lewis reps were practically arguing just now over who's is best.

    Going for a 65" screen and will be 80% Sky HD (Until UHD comes on my Sky Q Box) Amazon Prime, Blurays (until i get a 4k Player) and some PS4 Gaming. Mostly viewed in a darken room in the evening and will eventually be wall mounted, hence the KS8000 and not the KS9000.

    Hopefully someone could give me some idea on which to pick!

    Regards

    Danny

    Struggling with this decision as well. The Sony x930D does the blacks exceptionally well. And I think it makes think look more lifelike. But the brights on the Samsung are truly superb. Struggling right there with ya. (my post is almost identical to this haha)

    I think for some reason im gonna go with the Samsung, the lower ms refresh rate, brighter screen and £200 less price is gonna take it for me. Hopefully i won't regret it!

    I understand that the main difference is that the Sony has two rows of LEDs down the left and right side whereas the Samsung only has one on the lower side. Presumably this makes the Sony closer to the ideal of even LED backlighting (like the Panasonic 65DX902).

    I've decided on the Sony, in John Lewis they played 1080i trailers on both sets the Samsung clearly was struggling with refresh rate the Sony was just sublime and the blacks where quite unbelievable to be honest. Will be buying soon!!

    Enjoy. It does look like an excellent screen. Please send a summary once you have it up and running.
