hey guys just wondering which television is better television is better sony kdl40w4000 or samsung LE-40A656?

i see that the samsung model has higher contrast ratio and has the motion flow aspect with 100hz which is NOT in the sony model. is there anything compensating this on the sony model?

secondly, was just wondering which one is newer?

any assistance would be highly appreciated
thanks

Both are just brand new so dont worry much for the replacements they will come next year!As between the two PQ wise they are definitely excellent.They both offer the best current lcd black level measured.The static contrast is that matters not the dynamic.Both have a real meaured contrast of 2.500:1 to 3.000:1 on the sony and the samsung has a 1.300:1.The samsung has 100Hz too which is a +(W4000 motion still very good).On the reliability aspect currently the sony wins definitely as the samsung has had some problems which need immediate fix.I would suggest to go on a good av store and compare them

in terms of ps3 gaming, would the motion flow make a big difference?

from your response you seem more inclined to the sony model even taking into account the lack of motion flow?

your assistance is much appreciated
thanks

For ps3 gaming the 100Hz doesnt make difference anyway.Yeah as the lack of 100Hz doesnt introduce problems yes I would choose the W4000

Chris man again showing ur profession here :) appreciated.

I wonder why price of LE40F86 is not going down. You think F86 can even little bit compete with these 2 kings of the road?

no no way.About F86 its a strange story.While the model is somehow yet available although new models came(propably until the A750 comes) its obvious it doesnt sell anymore and the margin for lower price isnt achievable.Anyway I wouldnt think of F86 as a choice

Is it likely that the w4500 will replace the w4000 (so the same price) or likely to but marketed above this model?

no it wont replace W4000 it will be put above it
