What are the menus like? i read they can be quite slow and take awhile to respond to inputs? The only really thing putting me off a Sony TV.

Yeah I have a sony at the minute. Menus are shocking and you have to wait 30 seconds before you can change channels

Thanks, its really annoying i have a choice of 3 different TVs and all have problems!

Sony slow menus,
Samsung Light bleed on the edges,
LG not as good colours!

Was really hoping the reviews were being overly harsh on the sony menus

It's an older model like. But something I'll be researching before I buy my next tv.

Itnisnt a older model it does a 2017 model

Same mate really struggling on finding the best TV at the moment

Decent TV I believe this has around 500 nits peak brightness for HDR? Which is a bit way off from the 1000 nits for HDR premium but still decent. My TV does around 500 nits peak brightness and compared to our LG OLED B7 is hold it's own and produces decent HDR.

Much better than the other budget TV's you can get for the same price. Most of them only have like 400 nits so HDR just ends up really dim where you might as well just turn it off.

I've got this tv and I work for Sony. Fantastic price.

Is there a website that tells you the nits of each tv? i've used a spec comparison site but didn't see any mention of nits..

Great price.

Sony aren't great for gaming input lag on all low to mid range 4k tvs are above 30ms. (which is ok, just not great for games like cod etc) Samsung are alot better at around 20ms but LG is at around 15ms. Hisense, Panasonic, Philips etc are all above 30 aswel. I think below 30 should be a MINIMUM standard if you'll be using your tv for gaming in my humble opinion.

Here

Sony android tv's are a bit like the old valve tellies.give them a few minutes to get going before pressing all the buttons and they work fine.you can load kodi,iptv,vpns etc straight on

Glad I bought the Samsung 50" with 6 year guarantee from Richer Sounds for £499 now!!

Jump on this now or wait.... I know my local Currys has more than 50 of the KD49XE8396 in stock (which is essentially this TV but either a different colour bezel or different stand) which likely means it'll be on offer soon - or Black Friday.... Having seen how some delivery companies handle TVs in transit I'm very cautious about buying one online.

Peak brightness alone not a very useful figure since actual real scene brightness range is often limited by the TV's native contrast and local dimming system.

That's nothing to do with the TV's peak brightness or any of it's other hardware. Scenes are brighter overall due to the way Sony's tone mapping prefers to keep high scene brightness rather than scaling everything down relative to the peak brightness of the entire video. You lose some dynamic range, but the result is far more watchable in the typical home environment.

This is basically what the fuss about dynamic metadata is, it allows content creators to provide guidance on how brightness should be scaled on a per-scene basis to give results similar to what Sony is doing automatically.

This or LG 49SJ800V as there is no stock on the LG anywhere

It's not adding the £50 discount for me is there anything specific i need to do

*Edit* Website was being dodgy -_- couldn't sign up for membership in chrome so had to do it in edge instead then the membership discount didn't work in edge so went back to chrome xD

Sony worth every penny hit

Ordered - thanks! I always find their website is a bit flaky when trying to use a code on top of the membership deal, but this one works eventually, plus a bit of cashback.. Now to find a soundbar...

How do you get the membership discount to work? I'm logged in but doesn't add it on, only CP40. Tried on different browsers with no luck

It was automatic for me once I put my membership number in at the top of the screen. I was using chrome, but it also worked ok on another item via internet explorer when I was at work

Mine arrived yesterday. Fine so far, set up was easy just to figure out how to set it up to work best with my av system without having to use 3 different remotes, my old LG was good at that. No problems with android so far, syncs with my android phone well and no slow down problems for me as I use a set top box not the built in tuner/you view
