its a 50".
Edited by: "doe" 24th Sep 2013

That's 50" then.

Great price - supposedly the best (along with W8) for gaming because of low input lag
Edited by: "drasim" 24th Sep 2013

is that price including the vat?

No 3D + LED = Cold from me im afraid.

Picked up a 50 Plasma Smart 3D for £499 on Amazon two months back, then my Dad got the exact same one from JL for £589 about 2 weeks ago (with the 5 year warranty).

im after a tv but I can't see past st60 its beat tv out for price range

I think JollyEngland means he is voting it cold BECAUSE it is an LED TV...

did you go back to mk costco? did you see how many they had left please?

Led are really low power consumption and good backlit one produce decent results. This is edge lit though and really Sony havent have not decent tv for years.

Much prefer a Samsung or Lg to be honest. There top end sets are superior in pretty much every way to comparable Sony screens.

Which model? I'm looking for a plasma.

What is the normal price for this and do you need to pay stupid money to get a wifi dongle?

Ah ok, yes that would meke sense.

What are the advantages of Plasma over LED? I always thought LED was better (not that I know much about it)

Great price, great TV. Smart features with motion flow & 200hz. 3d is dead.

Not everyone wants 3D. I would rather have a very good 2D - not a fan of having to wear glasses to watch telly. Its personal choice.

I know it's subjective, but I also have no interest in 3D. I'm sure I read somewhere recently that the BBC are no longer producing any 3D output as there is insufficient demand.

Very good price with the Costco 5 yr warranty, not a fan of that big lump on the back of it though, looks like it will sit quite far away from the wall if wall mounting.

Do you have to use the supplied stand as a wall mount?

If so, that will stand out from the wall.

Panasonic GT50s are the best!!! especially for gaming

to be honest, i only got this for the conservatory so we can spend more time in there.

Ive just taken a hdmi splitter from the main sky box to the new tv. So wont be using it to its max capability.

But to those who generally want advice

1) to see quality as demonstrated in store on the majority of screens; a to get the quality :

a) you have a HD BOX set up with 1080p out
b) To maximise and see full potential of the screen blurays are the way
c) finding the audio on the sony not as great as as my older samsung, however the thinner theyre getting the worst the speakers in built are getting (personal opinion) so definately invest in a soundbar or speaker package!

That made me laugh. 3D is a joke and thankfully is now dead for another generation.

Will anyone pm this? Miles away from any Costco!!

Will anyone p/m this deal? No stores near me.

Checked the box and there are other supplied bits for the wall mount. Confused me as well...lol. But had it on cupboard in 10 mins.
Just installed the Sony remote app on iPhone and tablet. Will have a play Thursday when I return back home..

Btw, I I have a JL price match for the Sony 47" W805 at £879. Don't need it anymore. So if its transferable anyone is welcome to have it.

That is strange because I asked JL instore to price match for this TV and they said they dont price match Costco as it is not open for general public (you need membership)

these 5 year guarantees from Costco, I'm told that if you have a problem and you contact the Helpline, they tell you, you will be
charged if they cannot find anything wrong or that in their opinion there is nothing wrong with the tv!

Has anyone else come across this!

A friend of mine bought a samsung LED TV from Costco 3 years ago with the 5 years warranty..After a year the TV broke down and it was repaired under warranty..over the following two years it broke down again 3 times and got repaired but the third time they decided to refund him his money which was only last week so the warranty is good..the only issue is that every time they took the TV for repair they left him without a TV for couple of weeks...it would have been nice to lend him a set to use while his TV in repair

Sam, sorry I meant I price match a 47" W8 at RGB direct. Not Costco.
