Default Re: friend casts doubts over my TV choice

Sony sets are not that great. I've owned the V and Z series in the past, and I'm NOT going back to Sony TV's ever. Their PQ is definitely inferior to Samsung counterparts...

If I were you I would stick with Samsung TV's. There's a reason why they pretty much hold a third of the worlds LCD hdtv market lol. Btw, their new 9 series is going to blow away the sony's xbr8 (which I HATE the looks of, those dumbo earlike side speakers are the ugliest additions to an HDTV yet). Or you can vouch for the 850/860s which have slim bezel and blue color infused into the bezel glass, instead of the red as in 6/7 series.

EDIT: you probably wouldn't want the consistent sparkle issue of the sony sets. That drove me CRAZY, to the point that I actually did NOT want to turn my TV on, defeating the purpose of me buying it in the first place lol...

In fact, Samsung uses better panels. They do not sell latest ones to Sony
