Saw this in one of the stores in Northern Ireland. Not sure whether it is UK wide but the dealer mentioned that Sony is running this scheme. The model number is 40zx1
and the link to specs

Saw it last weekend in Newtownards but they had 4 pieces left yesterday (one bought by my mate). The manager mentioned that the same scheme is in Belfast centre as well

What a waste of time with the 1st Gen wireless. Nice TV but put together totally wrong in execution.

Good price if you want to match the 'wireless space' to your home cinema, but not if you want a cable free TV setup.
#3
For this price I wouldn't even mind buying just the tv. Wireless - don't use it
#4
I hate how some TVs boast about how "slim" they are. Its not like im going to be watching it on a bus and almost all HDTVs these days are wall mountable
#5
Not many boast of wireless, though.
I'm thinking replacing the wall painting bought from ikea with this tv:)

Lol. 4 in stock

Wireless does not handle 1080p, only direct HDMI input into the TV

Very hard to find these days as it was discontinued a couple of months ago. at 999 its a steal as the RRP was around £3,000. They're actually selling it less than they make it for

you sure about that? Isnt this just an LCD TV with an LED backlight?
#13
I believe all the led TVS in the Market are led backlit
full led is oled, which aren't available in 40 inch screen.

I think you mean edge backlight and not array blacklight. In that case you are right the array backlight are still very new and would cost over 3k.

OLED is a different technology to LCD and Plasma.

LED is simply a type of backlighting or sidelighting on various LCD panels.
#16
So what exactly is the wirelss teature on this set? Have looked at the Sony site but it isn't explained at all.
#17
You can connect the cable, satellite box, computer etc to small box which comes with the tv. This box then transmits signals wirelessely to the tv. No need to connect your cables directly in the tv.

Agree with you. Just wanted to make a point that there are only led backlight TVs available in the Market. If you use LEDs for display as well instead of only lighting then the display itself is called oled.

Ah, Ok, thanks for that. So really just for wall mounted sets then? I have an Alphason stand and all my cables are stiffed inside the centre tube of the stand.

there are not just LED tvs available in the market

traditional LCDs with CCFL are still available

also for those that think full LED is OLED etc

OLED is Organic LED its very expensive atm and not available in large sizes

You can get tvs with a panel at the back which has rows and rows of LEDs these are FULL LED tvs, they are better than the edge lit LEDs as you can attain local dimming for better contrast etc.

But this price is HOT OP as someone said above they did RRP at £3k and they do make a loss at this price, but its a 9.9mm tv and does look pretty sweet

oled- organic light emitting dioed

With more vivid, lifelike colors, better representation of fast action video, wider viewing angels, and much higher contrast ratios, Organic light emitting diode Tvs dramatically enhance the viewing experience. Ech frame is sharp, ech detail pops! Thats because this display technology naturally refresh up to a thousand times faster than an LCD. Their color gamut can exceed NTSC standards. And this displays feature almost 180 degree viewing angle and in inherent contrast ratio of > 1.000.000:1.

While that is true, I know the margins for pretty much all Sony TVs (I work for them)

The stores buy these in for around £1200-1300

This came out months before samsung and the other brands bought out their "LED" models so thus why its so pricey. The new generation ex models will be cheaper to produce

fair enough but do these new generation 'LCD' Tvs really have that much of a picture improvement over normal LCD to justify paying 2-3 times as much? Surely its better to wait a year for OLED price reductions.

You'll be waiting a lot longer than a year before OLED becomes mass market. At the moment its 3 grand for an 11 inch OLED screen. I reckon about 3-5 years before a 40 inch OLED TV becomes 'affordable' to the masses.

The wireless feature is a nice addition but you would still have a power cable running to it. Only way round that would be to have a plug socket installed behind where you would mount the tv. If you were going to go to that much trouble you may as well just bury the wires in the wall and plaster over them.

Exactly what I thought, what a pointless feature. Gadgets and gimmickery over substance, and who the heck wants more wireless signals flying around the house anyway?
