Good deal

bought !

Will anywhere price match this? Amazon won't deliver this to NI

There's a 65" - KD65XD7504 - zat £799 which also looks like a good price?

Hot. £749 at most retailer, argos, John Lewis, £900 at very. Great deal!

Have been holding off getting a 4K TV but when I saw the price it was pretty much an instant purchase. Great reviews and 10-bit!

Is this proper HDR? I think wide range or something it's called?

Actual 10 bit?

Someone is probably going to tell me I shouldn't be spending so much on a TV if I'm asking this question, but I'll ask anyway!

Is there a reason why the 55 inch LG deal is £90 more expensive? Are there any reasons why anyone would go for LG over Sony? In terms of quality, reliability etc.

My current TV in my room is an LG 1080p model (which was served me very well) I've had for a few years and I'm looking to upgrade if possible. Any advice would be much appreciated!

not an actual 10bit panel, entry level 10bit TV still the Samsung KS7000 series then.

I've had this model for a couple of weeks (paid £616 I think).

For the price, very impressed.

Be aware that it IS sometimes laggy (I know it has a dual core CPU when every comparable set has a quad), and at times reminds me of what my 1GB S3 was like on Android after a couple of years. If you are mostly watching long TV shows or movies, rather than constantly flicking through channels or menus, then it's not much of an impediment and more of a downside that you just accept and work around. For example, if I'm streaming something in Ultra HD via the Amazon Prime TV app, changing the volume will lead to a few seconds of frame rate slowdown / stuttering, with volume on-screen changing 5-6 seconds after pressing the button.

For a non-demanding user the picture is very good, but it does struggle with low light scenes. Blacks are obviously not that great, but the more noticeable weakness is the backlight constantly blooming and dimming during scenes set in dark rooms, with the picture looking completely washed out.

If you can forgive these issues, it's a fantastic TV for the money. The Man in the High Castle in Ultra HD is amazing!

The LGs are worth considering if you want the quad core CPU, webOS, or inbuilt FreeSat (the Sony has Sat inputs but not the FreeSat EPG).

8bit and FRC. Great TV for the price though!

​Does anyone know if this 65 inch Sony is any good?

Good for PS4 Pro? Or go for better TV

Great I was looking at the 65 inch version but I have a 2014 60 inch Sony Bravia but have been holding out for a 2017 65 model, I think I will wait and get a new telly on Black Friday

OK - that looks a more comprehensive spec. Richer Sounds has it listed as a dual core. Either way there's a bottleneck somewhere leading to the big lag spikes.

10bit on there Sony website...ordered bargain!

This may be a stupid question, but a lot say these Sony tv's have really bad lag when pressing the remote to the action happening on the TV. Can this be avoided with a roku stick etc?

Or are just normal tv channels also affected too?

Sadly not. It's 8bit + FRC so it fakes 10 bit. Probably wouldn't notice mind you.

it is a good price,
Edited by: "deanos" 10th Jul

I originally bought it and then cancelled 30 mins later as the lack of 5/6 year warranty put me off.
I would rather pay an extra £150 for extended warranty for a TV from John Lewis or Richer Sounds.

Yep - it's on the latest 6.2602.

I'm happy enough as I don't really 'watch TV' (channel surf); I just watch a few hours a week of streamed series episodes, for which the picture quality to my eyes is great (i.e no need to pay the premium for blacker blacks etc). If I was constantly hopping channels and moving around the interfaces, I might be less keen.

RGBW panel, avoid like the plague.



What does this mean?
RGBW panel?

Is the 55" one the same??

Alas need a better panel as I game on my main TV. But good price never the less.

great deal for those willing to take a risk. I just don't buy TVs without some kind of warranty. shame I would have bought this in an instant!!

Out of stock.
