My goodness what a beauty
It's a good price , but the XF90 is superior and may be worth waiting for the price to drop on that.

You may have to wait a while for that.

Only difference in the new model is the upgraded processor. It is now the same as the A1 OLED...

However the picture on this TV is incredible and so is this price...

HOT!XD

Yeah but the XF90 supports Dolby vision, this does not.

Plus this TV has annoying frame skipping issue... Google it.

So the new version is DV compatable?
Only the a few ex-display models left.
Still too expensive for only a 49 inch model

As I said the same chipset as the A1 so DV is included.

As for the google of the frame skipping, I own it and I’ve not had any issues. As said above the picture on my 55” version is sublime!

If you are prepared to wait 12 months (or maybe Black Friday) for the XF to drop to this level, then good luck. But I wouldn’t count on it, as this is now the top of the range standard Sony TV.
Apart from the screen size, is there anything different from the 55inch?

The XF90 has a few other upgrades aside from the processor. It gets a fair bit brighter, which helps with more impactful HDR as well as preserving more specular highlight detail. It also has the new X-Motion Clarity technology, which improves motion handling significantly even over existing X1 Extreme-equipped TVs. The local dimming algorithm has also been upgraded a bit and exhibits less blooming. Vincent Teoh actually posted a three-way comparison of the XE90, XF90 and XE93 earlier that highlights some of the improvements:


Of course, whether all that's worth paying an extra £500 at current prices is up to you. The XF90 will inevitably come down towards the end of the year though, once they're done fleecing the suckers during the launch window.

The XF will be superior, but will be Sonys flagship LED. Where as the XE90 isn't. The XF90 won't be at this price this time next year. When the price does drop Sony's 2019 range will be close to release, so based on your thinking don't ever buy a TV as a newer better TV will be released

No brainer
£874 was the lowest I’d seen this so good deal if you’re looking to buy one!

The rate that TV technology is advancing, by the time they reduce the XF90 there will be a better one out you'll be waiting for to be reduced. Chasing you're tail. At some point you have to take the plunge and for me the XE9005 is probably as good as it gets at this price range. I got the 55",it'll do me for the next 5 years or so.

Not for Dolby vision, it's a standard required for me to jump. This TV doesn't support it.

You can only wait so long. At some point you gotta pull the trigger and purchase, otherwise you'll wait forever and a day for the next best thing
Great TV (I have it) but it has absolutely terrible viewing angles. If you are viewing it from even a few degrees off centre It's like you have turned the brightness up and no amount of calibrating will get rid of it. Oh and some of these sets have random banding on white backgrounds and although I've noticed it twice (playing in 4K on my One X) it hasn't done it since.
You can get the 55inch for £1019 at moment still unsure whether to pay the difference for the LG oled..

I have issues with Sony kd-43x8307c. Amazon video on wired connectionstutter at start, and bt sport on chromecast built in has serious judder/robotics movement but not on 2 other older Sony tv’s very annoying. And on 75 meg connection and with recent Sony/Android update. If not resolved would put me off buying another Sony.

Don't mind him, he's basically the "anti-49 inch" troll.
