Sony will have TV's that cater for different segments of the markets. One segment that they cater for is the low end, thus the U range appear in supermarkets. These are cheaper ones that cater for the lowerend of the market.

What he means is that I believe the "U series" are actually built in Turkey by Beko, rather than directly by SONY, which is why they can afford to sell them a lot cheaper. Quality between them varies, but it's generally regarded as the "supermarket model" in SONY's range.......not that it's necessarilly a bad thing, but many just like to have that SONY badge on the front of their TV.:thumbsup:

Basically low end sony's aren't good, you can get a better and cheaper samsung LE40R87BDX for £550 quid, great tv and a midrange tv not this garbage!

I wouldn't say it's garbage, it just caters for those that are more interested in having that SONY badge than a better performing TV from a lower status brand.........bit like those that buy BMW's (could buy better for less, but then they'd lose that status symbol).

Poor analogy.

BMWs are bought by those who appreciate a vehicle with a unique driving experience backed by powerful performance, and overall a smoother, more pleasurable driving experience. The bonus with a BMW is that it is also a status symbol, thanks to the fact it is able to draw envious glances from all quaters.

A Mondeo may offer more interior space than the equivalent 3 series, however the BMW will be a better place to spend your time - even if people won't let you out of sideroads.

I'd say it's quite a reasonable analogy when you think of the 1 series.

Interesting, I've never heard an eloquent boy racer before, what's a quater by the way? :whistling:

They are made in Slovakia, by Sony. I know, I have one.
My brother has an 'S' model, it has a similar label/box and is also made there.

I think this Beko thing is a myth!

EmpireDirect have the KDL40D3500 (Full 1080p 24fps True Cinema 100hz etc) for £749 ..... ring JohnLewis (who also stock this tv for £999) and get them to price match with EmpireDirect so you get the Tv for £749 which includes a 5 year Johnlewis warranty !
#18
You don't actually get 100Hz on the D3500 series, the 32 and the previous 40D3000 have Motionflow. The 3500 gains 1080p, loses an HDMI port, (as well as 100Hz), swings and roundabouts etc... :)

That's not to say that any D series isn't a big leap over the U series, which really is overpriced for what it is.

Unless you can find this at a sub-£500 price point I would pony up a little extra cash for a Bravia that actually has a BRAVIA™ engine. The U has nowt.

Too true, and how many 'Bavarian Motor Works' products , deserve the badge, many have never seen Germany. They are made anywhere now days!

i heard that sony's lcd use samsung panels, not sure if thats true tho and for the whole range - tho there is a lot more to a tv a than a panel....in any case i think sony tv are more natural than the way overprocessed samsung's.
