$549 55" Samsung 4K is the better deal in my book.

3D is a gimmick that died last year (maybe it was the year before) and 4K is pretty much supplanting 1080p now and going forward

I dont understand. The 4k has a better resolution so why does the refresh rate matter ? This is only a 1080p

2160p (4K Ultra HD)
Also known as 4K, UHD or Ultra HD, 4K Ultra HD TVs offer the newest and best resolution available in the marketplace. They deliver up to four times the resolution of 1080p TVs and produce stunningly clear, detailed images. This level of resolution lets you sit quite close to the screen for a fully immersive experience. They also have the ability to upscale current high-definition content to make what you watch look even sharper.

1080p (Full HD)
Allows you to watch Blu-ray movies, Full HD content and all TV programming at their highest level of detail. 1080p is by far the most common HDTV resolution available.

The Sony has 60hz refresh. How is that better than the 4K Samsung?

Not to mention this model is more than 18 months old. Didn't know old tech is popular on SD Smilie

According to Rtings this set is 120hz, and has brightness problem. Great on judder test.
Strange spec, 10bit panel. 1080p 185 cd/m2 on brightness test. (source: rtings)

If your watching in well lit room, would just skip this.

I am asking the question not making a statement here.

From what i have read in the forums that 120hz is way more expensive than 60hz. Will I get motion blur with a 60hz running the fake 120hz ?

Trying to get the best deal here. I am about to purchase a TV from BB and want to make sure that the Samsung or the Hisense will be the winner and then I see this Sony.

I will be using the TV to watch movies, Cable TV, Netflix and as a computer monitor.


Any and all help is greatly appreciated

I have this TV... Got it because it's insanely good for gaming with a really low input lag at like 22ms or so. Blacks are deep, resolution is crisp and great for watching sports as it is a 120hz. It also works really well hooked up to your PC as a monitor. Highly recommend this TV if you love gaming and don't want to adopt to 4K yet. The picture is great.

Garry,

There are TV's with 4K lik the Samsung listed at BB arent those TV's better than this one for the same money ? I am trying to figure out why this Sony TV would be the better buy?

Thanks

I'm personally waiting for better Sony 4Ks cause I love my Sony a lot and their input lag on the 4Ks aren't that great compared to mine. But from what I've researched I haven't come across a great 4K that gets the best of both worlds of picture, motion blur, and input lag. The best I've seen is the Samsung KS8000. I might wait for that to get cheaper eventually or just see what else Sony comes out with in the future. Their TVs work great with my PS4 as I can use my TV remote to control it. Hope that helps.

Also rtings.com has a lot of good thorough reviews on TVs.

SONY 120hz is definitely better than current Samsung 4K/UHD. You can figure it out when you compare both (Make sure you do your own settings as many stores are making SONY TV look worse than other brand).

Looks like I'm headed to Bestbuy tomorrow. Just bought this TV open boxed for $450. Was happy I got 10% off too, will need to see if I can get that again.

I have this TV for a guest room. It's nice and any dimness complaints in my experience are remedied by selecting Sports mode. I don't use the 3D as I have two LG's with passive 3D that I think are better in the 3D department.
