This seems a sensational price for an LED, freeview HD top-of-the-range Sony TV. Currently selling for £1438.79 (before Sony cashback) at Amazon!

Possible mis-price, as they are selling the 'cheaper' KDL46EX703 for £100 more than this and the 40" version (KDL40EX713U) at exactly the same price and I can't find any other retailer selling the KDL46713 for under £1000! Normal in store price £1099.99, web only price £899.99, Code 3005 for an extra 5% now sadly expired, but claim VAT back from Sony to bring down to £765.95. Can also use Quidco to get 3% (£27.00) off, GIVING A FINAL PURCHASE PRICE OF £738.95, which is pretty amazing for this TV.

Isn't this the KDL46EX713U TV?

This is an "Edge LED" backlight not a "Full LED" backlight.

Yes, thanks, I believe you're right, title corrected. Still an amazing TV and an unbelievable offer at this price, IMO.

Damn, i'm taking delivery of one of these tomorrow, and I thought I got a good deal at £990 (~£850 with the vat back), will have to ring the retailer and agree something

Lol, I hope you haven't been up all night, losing sleep deciding on this deal, Mariolj. :D

Not sure about the wall mounting, but the Sony web page states that it has 'vesa mounting holes', which seems to imply that it is:

http://www.sony.co.uk/product/t46-ex-series/kdl-46ex713#pageType=TechnicalSpecs

On a separate note, I am not sure whether the '3005' 5% discount code has now expired or not (even if it has, it is still a very good deal, IMO). I you do order and you try out the code, can you let me know, please?

PS. You can also download the full manual from Sony's website, which should tell you for certain.

Pretty mach all tv's, especially at this level are wall mountable, so I wouldn't worry about it.

Excellent deal!

I tried to ask John Lewis to price match... they are looking into it. I'm not so sure whether a 5 year warranty is needed if only for my peace of mind. Although I have bought two sony lcd tv's already, and they have never had any problems.... I'm still paranoid though! :-(

Anyone had any problems with their LCD? Are these kind of problems common?

Not really a sensational price, more inline with the cheap end of the market, still not the cheapest either

Why not buy it to get over the 'wanting' and seeing as though you don't need it give it to me :)
#19
Seems a good deal, but not a mis price. You can't compare the VAT back eventual price with one from Amazon without. Misleading. So this is basically paying £900 at the shop (less 5% hopefully) and claiming VAT back from Sony.

Bear in mind TVs will be geting cheaper as they start trying to flog us new 3D, better, faster, improved, higher, nicer televisions. Although 2.5% more VAT in a couple of months time.

Spoke to Empire Direct (Premier AV Center) this morning, they were not taking any prisoners as far as trying to match the price on my existing order which hasn't been delivered yet, even though their Premier AV Center website says they will. So had to cancel my order with them, even though I just asked them to match the Comet price of £899, never mind the 5% and quidco. They actually got quite agressive about it and in the end told me to get my money back via a charge back after they tried to charge me £30 delivery for a TV that has not yet arrived, when their website said free delivery.

Even though I have used Premier AV Center before, I can't recommend any retailer that markets themselves as having the best prices and then treats customers so agressively.

Just picked one of these up from Comet for £855 with the 5% code which I used this morning on a click and reserve. Even the guy in the shop was stunned at that price, they hadn't even put their display model out on show yet!

Andyken, thank you very much, you just saved me another £140 over what I thought was the cheapest price on the web.
#21
Beware this tv has some back lighting issues! Hence the cheap price. Please check out a review of the tv first. What hi fi recently tested it. You would be better off going for the 703 or even th 503.

If you look at the PRC site, the price factors in the VAT, so that's the final price, (which has a basket price of £992.76)
As for the Cheap Electrical site, there is no chance of quidco. To be honest I've always been wary of this site. Although it may be a great, I wouldn't want to take any chances when shelling out this much $$. At least with Comet it's easier for us to pull up and start screaming at someone when things go wrong.

Perhaps the backlight issues aren't a problem on the 46", as the Whathifi is reviewing the 40". Still, have a check in store as I think this a brilliant price!

Have to say, very happy with it. I upgraded from a Sony KDL40W2000 and the picture is good and with all the new features, iPlayer, etc..... it's well worth the money.

I can confirm there does appear to be a minor lag on the picture on the 40" version, I could see it in the store when you're stood in front of 50 LCD screens showing the same thing and although it does play DivX / XviD, it doesn't recognise MKV's on USB or through DLNA, as well as only supporting FAT32 on my USB stick and not NTFS.

But for £702, for a Tier 1 manufacturers 46" 100hz TV, , I don't think you could do better and I have to say the set is incredibly thin and does have a VESA mount holes.

I would also say, that this must be a misprice, as this would make this the cheapest anywhere in the country by £100 and at least £200 with the discount code from any other retailer, and it's not often that Comet undercut everyone else in the country. Also this is the same price as the 40" version on their site.

The firmware update is here, http://support.sony-europe.com/tvhc/tv/lcd/lcd.aspx?site=odw_en_GB&m=KDL-46EX713 , but my set didn't need it, so must have been manufactured in the last 30 days.
#26
Thanks Kraven, it does seem like a really good deal, although does the link you provide address the backlight issues described in the whathifi.com review?

I'd like to think I am being overcautious, but it's hard to tell... I may have a scan of AV forums and report back what I find.

I completely agree and my initial thought when I first saw it was that it must be a misprice, but hopefully not enough of of one for them not to honour it (i.e. mistakenly put on their website at £89.99 instead of £899.99). Time will tell.....Profit margins on items like this are known to be tight and I just can't see how Comet can be making any at this price. I suspect they are actually making a loss and they will come to their senses and correct the price once they realise.

I just wish I was in a good enough financial position to go for it myself, a year ago, I wouldn't have hesitated, but sadly not at the moment....:(

Hot Hot Hot.... but personally i might wait for few more weeks for Christma deals... as TV' are going to get cheaper and cheaper ....

Well the thread on AV Forums for this TV is the best place to look and contains a lot of peoples settings to get the best picture.

http://www.avforums.com/forums/lcd-led-lcd-tvs/1313453-sony-bravia-ex713-ex710-edge-led-owners-thread.html

People do mention Edge Bleed, but most compensate by adjusting the settings manually. But I have to say, and I admit I can be as bad as the next person, most people who use those forums can be overly critical.

Also, this is £200 cheaper than the next 46" LED TV on Comets website (Samsung UE46C6540) and £250 cheaper than the Sharp. Even the cheapest CCFL Samsung 46" is £629

“Feeview” eh? So they charge a fee to view it?


Oops, well spotted. :D

Hmmm. Tempted - as I missed it when John Lewis had the 703 version at a very similar price, but with their 5 year warranty (expired btw)

Anyone know the differences between the 703 and the 713?

You can do a comparison on Sony's website:

http://www.sony.co.uk/comparison/kdl46ex703u/kdl46ex713u

The differences between the two appears to be very marginal. From what I can see, the 713 has a peak luminance of 72% vs 70% on the 703 and the 713 is fractionally more energy efficient. The 713 also has DVB-T and a 'High Definition MPEG-4 TV tuner (enhanced HD?), whereas the TV tuner on the 703 is MPEG-2. That appears to be it.

I was looking at both the 46" 703 and 713 models over the last two weeks. The price of the 703 has been fluctuating between £790 and £999. I managed to get the 703 for £790 from Amazon, with the VAT back this equates to £670 in total. Good price for a LED TV in my opinion.

It is more or less the same as the model that supersedes it; i.e. the 713. differences are minor, although I do think the 713 looks better.

Arrived on Thursday, unpacked it last night, fired it up and sat back and watched 'The Hitcher' on ITV HD. The HD picture quality was amazing. The normal digital and analogue was acceptable, no better or worse that anything else out there. But after watching a HD channel nothing else quite looks good again.

The sound is probably the weakest part of these TV's. The bass is poor in my opinion, but i guess with such a thin TV this is a given, and probably affects all super thin LED's.

Final verdict awesome TV for the money. looks nice, has all the latest tech you need. USB DIVX works very well, PS3 looks brilliant with it. Am thinking of mounting on wall in future - as i think it will look like a picture frame due to its thinness.

Keep an eye on Amazon and if/when it drops in price again, snap it up. Beware, Amazon change their prices by the hour. so if you see it £790 or less then buy it!

Thank you andyken. Seems a bit negligible really... but why the RRP of the 703 is £200 more than the 713... Suggests that the 713 is in fact inferior???

Yeah, I noticed that and it does seem a bit puzzling. the only thing I can think is that if the 703 is an earlier model, maybe it was brought out when LED's were more in their infancy and RRP's were greatly over-inflated.

Spec. of the 713 does seem to be just a tiny bit better, so it is odd that the RRP of the 703 is higher. Or maybe it just shows you should never pay much attention to the 'RRP' of anything! :D
