Does anyone that has this TV have any comment on the menu speed etc? Picture on my current TV is great but pushing the buttons on the remote and the menus loading is chronically slow.

Just saying.... we had a 65" Sony Bravia. It lasted 15 months - thank god for John Lewis's Warranty - anyway - this is not my point - that was just luck of the drawer - my point is the picture! We returned our TV for a refund as JL didnt have anything comparable -

....so we bought a Samsung - and wow, wow, wow! Seriously - I will never buy a Sony TV again - people aren't kidding when they say Samsung make the best screens. Its a million miles away from the Sony - one example (and I've got many, I never shut up about the Samsung) we watched Taken on blu-ray on the Samsung and it looked like it was filmed yesterday as opposed to all bitty and very digital looking on the Sony (you can see all the dots especially in darker scenes) where as on the Samsung it was like watching it for the first time all over again. I cannot stress how much better the picture (any picture) is on the Samsung compared to the Sony. Watching something more upto date (like Trolls for the millionth time) the picture is so amazing it draws you in, and somethings look real it spins you out a little to start with.

I just thought i'd share that before you spend your hard earned cash on a Sony! I for one have never been so happy our Sony broke and was beyond economical repair, and that we used the money to buy a Samsung.

It was the Sony Bravia KD65S8505 Curved LED 4K Ultra HD from John Lewis. The TV we have now is the Samsung UE65KS8000 65" 4K HDR S-Ultra-HD (Quantum Dot).

The differences are simply amazing. Even when streaming old films that have been re-done in HD never mind on blu-ray (like Matilda on Netflix) and when streaming from Google Play; the picture is simply amazing. The depth and colours is like nothing I've ever seen.

On the Sony they look pixelated, and were ruined by lots of dots everywhere (obviously the technique they use to make an old film into HD) but with the Samsung the images is as sharp, crisp and clear as if they were film in HD yesterday. We haven't even tried anything in 4K yet

I believe the Samsung is now discontinued (it was £1,499 from Sonic Direct - I didn't expect to have to buy another TV so soon after buying the Sony - I simply wanted the same features for the same money as John Lewis did us over a little bit [the Sony was £2,199, they price matched - great - and had a £250 TV Trade in offer, in the end we were a 37" TV down and only got £1,499 refund - so we essentially gave away our old tv) but when we come to upgrade it will be Samsung for us all the way.

hmm... looks like you're comparing a LED with an OLED-esq technology. You should be in fact comparing a Sony KD-65A1 and Samsung QE65Q8CAMTXXU

and for 4K Get a UHD BLURAY player for ~£300 OR get a PS4/XBOX for same price and double benefits

These tellys are no where close to the £2199 which you've mentioned for Sony.

P.S.: Where and how did you get a trade-in offer?

Well it seems you picked a lovely TV had a look at it and it has very good reviews. Hopefully you will get many years out of it. Before you decide to upgrade.

I have this panel.

Some criticise the OS (Android) as being slow and clunky - I don't agree, I think for a lowish end spec 4K, this is pretty decent. Add to that the fact you can sideload apps onto this and have Movie HD streaming direct from this TV...

Don't get me wrong, the picture took a while to get right, and it isn't perfect - typical LCD tech with clouding in the corners, but it's still impressive for this price bracket.

I'm sure at this price point and size it's a perfectly adequate TV. Sony don't help themselves with menu settings etc but you can almost always get a lovely natural sharp picture with great motion and very decent input lag with Sony tvs. I've done alot of research over the last few years owning some high priced sony tvs. Trying to understand the terminology of the settings etc . and Changed alot of batteries in the remotes. worth it though. If you gonna own this stuff may as well try and get the best out of it. Started on the beer early today basically topping up from last night in prep for the game tonight. That I'll be watching on a projector incidentally X) So sry for the rant!

Meant to mention lol have you tried altering the dynamic control in the picture menu to help with that clouding.

buying a new telly is so confusing. Does anyone know if the Panasonic 50 ex700b is better than this tv?

The Sony was £2,199 - The Samsung was £1,499 (not to mentioned we got a free Samsung 4K player with it ([UBD-K8500]). There was 12 Months between purchases. I cant believe that the differences in sheer quality reflect the £700 and 12 Months difference. If this is the case now, I suspect it was still the case a year ago, and will continue to be so unless Sony begins to live up to its reputation and catches up, because in my opinion you can get a whole lot more for your money rather than just buying Sony because you believe they're best (as we mistakenly did).

We got a free Samsung 4K player with the new TV (UBD-K8500) which we are currently selling on ebay, as we dont have any 4k blu-rays yet. I just can't bear to spend more money on 4K blu-rays (after being stung with Sony having 3D glasses and 3D blu-rays to now get rid of - and they're not cheap) - the hubby does have a PS4 though which we use for our normal blu-rays

As for comparing the models above, I simply can't in fairness becuase they are at a price point I could not consider paying. My opinion here is based on the £700 price difference and 12 months between purchases as mentioned. I wouldn't feel as strong if the Samsung was the one that was £700 more expensive as I now would expect for the image quality, not the other way around. I know tech moves along quickly, but I firmly do believe that for the comparable price point Sony's do lack and their current success is based on their name alone. I just wanted people to think and consider other brands as I wish we did.

The trade in offer was a promotion John Lewis has running at the time where they gave you £250 off any TV if you trade in any TV.
