At this price it can only be LED 'backlit' - not LED

Waiting for the price to come down on the full LED's - maybe next year.

This set is '3D Ready' therefore you won't find any glasses in the box and you'll also need a plug in adaptor to activate the 3D functionality!

give this 12 months and this will be under £1500

What's the difference between LED 'backlit' and full LED? :?

OP, it may be worth posting the 10% discount for anyone looking to pre-order in addition to Quidco. The money saved might be enough to invest in the additional 3D glasses and transmitter.

Stop talking twaddle.

Sorry if this is'twaddle', lol
I'm sure i stand to be corrected but LED (or OLED) screens have only just started to appear in shops and even a small 15" is about £3-4k - and no-one has made a LED more than 20" yet.
So where it says LED in the title - is not 'LED' - but LED backlit - ok

Well said!
Sony themselves correctly specify it is an LCD TV where they have chosen to use LEDs to backlight that LCD
"52” (132cm), Full HD 1080, 3D LCD TV with Intelligent Dynamic Full LED & Motionflow 400 PRO"
So don't know where the LED headline comes from (Currys w/be a good suspect).
Though can't spot WHERE Sony claim their LEDs to be positioned, or how many backlit zones there may be - hopefully is lurking/will emerge.

http://www.sony.co.uk/product/t46-hx-series/kdl-52hx903

Some reviews/comments from the early announcements said this HX was
"The model's full-array LED backlighting improves contrast and dynamic range by local dimming that controls the LED backlight level by area so that detail is maintained in the dark areas, while other areas are driven near peak brightness. The technology reduces unnecessary light emission resulting in true and deep blacks compared to conventional LED backlit models."
Hence maybe the prima facie premium pricing - as full-array LED backlights = expensive by comparison with edge.

polarised. sony says you get two but don't take my word for it..


Not polarised - this is active shutter when you upgrade:

"Full HD 3D capable – upgrade your BRAVIA with Active Shutter glasses and a 3D transmitter and you’re ready for an amazing Full High Definition 3D experience where the on-screen action reaches out to you with incredibly life-like 3D images "

Apparently US c$50 for set transmitter, and @ US c$130/glasses. So around £375 for a US household of 4 viewers :( Probably more here as we have smaller heads and/or far less country to move them around (or maybe fewer economies of scale) - some adverse pricing differential justification anyway I'm sure :(

PS: Just read a story in London Evening Standard that £75 for transmitter and £100 per headset = £475 for 4! It also highlighted that although Sony opened the pre-order today at Harrods/Currys (odd bedfellows) it isn't due for release until June by which time Samsung/LG/Panasonic may have released theirs anyway.

It's technology so of course it will, hardly sticking your neck on the line with that comment :)

So, what's the answer? Never buy anything incase it drops in price or depreciates? You have to bite the bullet some time, being at the forefront of technology is an expensive business.

yes active shutter.. these prices will plummet in a years time... this is when i will get my 3d

This TV seams a bit steep considering that most of the "3D" bits are missing. Basically it is just a fast panel with some sort of socket for the 3D add on.

and
LED TV's are labelled like that purposely to confuse customers.
But "OLED" is not "LED" is not "a Diode"

LED backlit is when the LEDs are placed around the screen as the Samsung/LG thin panels are, full LED has the LED array at the back of the panel ,hundreds of them which can be switched on or off for local dimming, as in the Sharp 600 and 700 series. Remember LED arrays only provide the light source for the LCD panel to work., doesnt follow they are better tellies as the reviews for the Sharps have shown.
#17
Interestingly the ONLY review of the 55" Samsung N55C7000WF another "3D Ready" (ie not already enabled) $3300srp on the US Best-Buy retailer website (the only set available) gives the opinion that its edge-lighting appears overly strong and the reviewer is concerned how that may/will counteract the 3D-illusion once he gets a chance to try it (which he doesn't plan to do as he's aiming to return it).

BTW: That's 12% more screen for c£1950 @ Best Buy but with major step down in LED lighting - ie side, rather than "The HX903 uses Sony's 'Intelligent Dynamic full LED backlighting' which employs the more advanced implementation of LED technology, local dimming."

I think you mean Edge LED and Backlit LED.

Sharp probably aren't the best example for backlit LED, Philips probably have the best sets currently but it's all new so will improve and get cheaper. I think you'll find that the Sharp has a full array but not local dimming which is why it's not as good.

Edit: Note to OP, I now realise you know the difference, but many on here don't. So apologies for the rant, it is not really aimed at you but ignorant people in general.

FOR THE THOUSANDTH TIME THERE IS NO MASS MARKET FULL LED TV ON SALE AT THE MOMENT. All so-called LED TVs are LCD TVs with either edge-mounted LED backlighting or rear-mounted LED backlighting.

The ONLY LED TVs available are OLED TV but they are not-mass market and very small sizes (I think the largest is 11") and fairly expensive. The reason they are not mass-market yet is because the OLED (Organic Light Emitting Diodes) have not been perfected for larger screens. However, once this technology is perfected OLED will be unbeatable in terms of picture quality.

Please don't talk rubbish. Rear-mounted LED backlit LCD screens ARE NOT Full LED. As the OP has him/herself pointed out Full LED will be/are OLED screens when these are available in larger sizes to a mass market.

Guyz : don't think there's too much point getting worked up about LED/OLED/LCD displays - it ain't gonna chance the spec of the Sony set this "HUKD" was about.

The original confusion point was that while Sony themselves describe the TV as LCD with LED lighting, Currys chose to headline it as an LED TV which is as daft as me listing my petrol engined car in the electric car section (as it includes a big battery to make the engine start)!

Let's keep our vitriol for retailers (and the occasional manufacturer) that seeks to headline/mislead the non-HUKD aware into believing that something they have "heard" is desirable (eg OLEDs or fully controlled LED backlighting of an LCD panel or 'LED TVs are always better') is what they are being offered (when it isn't).

Otherwise as we all know postings here are usually quickly contributed & usually aimed at trying to help others (either pro/con the advertised HUKD) and we all sometimes suffer from the misplaced finger/punctuation/abbreviation syndrome.
