I was looking for this particular TV for a while. It was always over 850 pounds.

Compared with other models that are around : 8004 ( 650 700 pounds) and 8005 (800 pounds in John Lewis and other stores) these two have 200 hz . This one has 400 Hz is at the same level with 8396 8088 8096 8099.

The price is 729 and goes down with the 10% discount code : LSTV10A and is available just for 3 more days.

Do you know what the actual difference is between 'motionflow 200hz' and 'motionflow 400hz'?

Sony's website specified which technologies it incorporates but says nothing about what the numbers mean in concrete terms:

Is better for gaming and sports.

Looks like the price has gone up

It's not better for gaming as you need to switch all motion off for that (along with everything else).

This is good price even with a 5yr guarantee.

I know what the technologies do, I'm asking how the marketing numbers translate into real hardware/software.

There are several techs that come under the motionflow name, The backlight control/BFI is beneficial, the frame insertion does have downsides and as you say many gamers have it turned off.

All gamers have it turned off on these Sony sets, as you cannot activate the Motionflow options in the low input lag modes like gaming/graphics.

With it on, the smoothness slider controls the degree of motion interpolation (the "soap opera effect") and the clearness slider enables backlight flicker (unlike most other brands the backlight doesn't flicker by default and uses a dimming circuit).

To the best of my knowledge there's no difference between the ones where they're claiming 'motionflow 200hz' and 'motionflow 400hz' on the spec sheet other than the colour of the bezel. I suspect it's an artificial distinction so that certain stores can have ones with unique model numbers and don't have to price match.

How does this compare to Sony Bravia KD49XE7073 for £549 in John Lewis

This is better. Look at the number after the ‘XE’ - OP has posted an 8000 series and yours is a 7000

This is from the next range up - the main additions are wide colour gamut for HDR and the Android TV operating system. These are a bit underpowered for Android, so that's not necessarily much of an advantage unless you have a specific use for it (for example the 7073 actually has lower input lag).
