I think for £429 you cannot go wrong...Thing is: if you want oled, 10bit, 200million mhz, etc you will have to pay for it. Guys in the office bought OLED tellies over £1K....I honestly cannot justify it...... I saw this TV and the XE9005 side-by-side at JL....I believe the differences were: edge backlight (8005) vs full screen backlight (9005) and motion 100hz vs 200hz.....XE9005 was 50% more expensive (£949 odd vs £629).....That is my opinion anyway...Can I afford an OLED TV £2K+: yes. Can I justify getting one: no....I almost bought a Hisense 49N5700 @ £399 yesterday.....
Too small...anything man sized?
Thanks OP, got Currys to price match with their 5 year warranty and get an extra 8% off through an employee perk scheme so got if for £395!

Seems like a good deal
Seems a good price, good spot.
Great deal. Any idea what HDR formats are supported?
Confused by the model numbers.
Where does this one sit in the Sony 49" lineup?
This is the deal of the year so far.

Go on Sony website and use the compare feature.
I was looking to get a Samsung 49mu6400 for a little bit more than this price.

Can anyone confirm if there is anything major that the Samsung has that is better than this Sony?

Looks like they've price matched Argos:

John Lewis and Richer Sounds (5/6 year warranty) price matching comes into play.

EDIT: JL don't have this TV. They have the 8005 model.

Same price at Argos, would personally get price match from JL for 5 year warranty.

Edit on checking JL don't have this model.

Yep and they'll beat the Argos deal by £10.

It’s not bad for the price the model John Lewis stock is the 8005 which has 400 motion flow. This has 200
What's the easiest way to price match with JL - fill the form in or phone up?

pretty much entry level. Doesn't have HDR10, is Edge lit and has IPS panel. The XE90 is the Mid range but cost double. Still you are getting a lot of TV for the Price.

To put that into context, no other brands have HDR10 at this size aside from the XE90 and the Samsung Q series.

Last year's Samsung KS series did. This years MU series don't at this size.

For this price, it's a superb buy.

No 65"? I'm about to spend 1500 on the xe900, mistake?
JL won’t price match as it’s a different model
Damn it..paid £557 for this set from Richer Sounds with price match and thought that was a good deal..I only got it out of box yesterday
jimbojames7926 m ago

Great deal. Any idea what HDR formats are supported?

This model doesn't have any local dimming, so essentially none. It will accept HDR10 and HLG signals, but won't display them anything like they should be. It's also an IPS panel, so contrast is pretty low.

Still, it's fairly cheap I suppose. You need to pay another £400 for the XE90 to get proper HDR at the same size.
jimbojames7927th Jan

It supports both HDR10 and HLG. I don't think it supports any dynamic metadata PQ-based formats but it seems unlikely there'll be any exclusives to them and the improvement from dynamic metadata is much smaller than buying a TV a couple of models higher (or a couple of years newer).

This is the XE80 so above the XE70 and below the XE85. It's Sony's cheapest TV using the Android smart system and the cheapest 4K TV with a wide gamut backlight.

No, the MU6400 is Samsung's equivalent to this model. I'd go for this one over the MU6400.

No, it's worth it. XE90 series is the best bang for money TV at that price point for a 65" set.

There's the Panasonic 50EX700B (technically one inch larger I suppose), which has edge-lit local dimming. It's the bare minimum, but certainly a better choice for HDR content than this, albeit £100 more expensive.

I just rang Richer Sounds and the guy on the phone said he couldn't price match and give me six years because Argos only sell the tv with a one year standard warranty and three years was the Argos maximum if you pay extra. He said Argos would need to offer a five year warranty which they don't and so Richer Sound were only willing to price match at £429 and give me 1 year.

Avoid.
Richer sounds did not offer to price match with 1 year warranty, they said it couldn't be done. They did offer to drop it to £589 because some other seller has it at that price. John Lewis wouldn't match because different TV.
I bought it from Argos, being delivered tomorrow. I think that's probably safer than Amazon?
Thanks Walesraider for posting the deal!
I dont feel that bad now paying £557 for 6 years cover from RS...Tempted to get this one from Amazon for the bedroom but really dont need this size...40 inch will do

I was told the same, but they've put me through to my local branch to see if there's anything they can do. They initially said they'd price beat, then realised it was the 43" model they were talking about. Then they've said they need to check a few things out and will come back to me in an hour. I'm not holding my breath, but will see what they say

This. RS are a good company but their TV price matching policy is a joke.
I had assumed Richer Sounds would price match any high street prices and throw in their extended warranty.
Maybe I'm getting mixed up with John Lewis.

I got this a few weeks ago and in my opinion is brilliant - you do need to view a few YouTube videos to ensure full HDR for Xbox as is not obvious for the avid consumer

Also I found the Smart / App interface works well, 4K Netflix is excellent and also has the advantage of KODI direct from the AppStore

The only current issue I have is when using my Harmony remote, occasionally the TV disconnects, and when powering down, my soundbar powers back on as does my Virgin V6 box - but I reckon this maybe due to me linking the Virgin Remote to initially control the TV, so will prob just do a reset on them

Some have had issues with the WiFi setting and the TV being slow to respond - I have not had an issue with this

For me, £429 is a great price, especially when a fire stick is not required

Oh, and the Remote has a voice control and it works with Alexa / Echo

I had this set last year, for general use it's a cracking TV. However i thought the blacks were a bit too grey for dark movie viewing and knew this would bug me long term. Bought XE90 a few weeks ago- vast contrast and black improvement, but yes, it's double the price. I do think this is a good deal though- it's a great picture generally and Android TV's better features outweigh some of it's more frustrating ones - once you get used to it and set up correctly.

Yeah I got told the same by the Prestwich store a couple of years back when I tried to get a price match on my current Sony 42" FHD TV. They would only match Tesco in store price with 1 year warranty. In the end I went to John Lewis and had the price match verified in a couple of days and picked up from Trafford Centre. Only saved £50, but better in my pocket than theirs
Owww i was holding out until the xe90 model to drop to around £800 but considering what the tv will be used for this looks too good to pass up. Would be great if we could find a store who'd price match and provide the 5yr warranty!
Its still a week until payday for me but this is too tempting! I wonder if they will still have stock next weekend at this price...

So how did you dispose of the old tv.
