Sony Bravia KD55A1BU OLED HDR 4K Ultra HD Smart Android TV, 55" with Acoustic Surface for £1999 after £300 cash back @ RGB Direct

Claim £300 cashback from Sony - instore purchase only

RGB direct are selling it for £2299.00 plus you can claim £300 cashback direct from Sony which would bring the price for this TV for under £2000.

I believe John Lewis should be able to price match this TV too. It is listed at John Lewis for £2499 with £300 discount already applied so this deal sounds like a big bargain.

The John Lewis link is as follows:


Hope you guys find this useful

What a stunning tv
Surely most places will match this or drop there prices
Lol that description is a joke. Hehe
TV looks awesome though
Heat for using your own words in the description.
When the teacher says you need a finger space between words.... This guy does a hand space between lines.
The Phillips oled is also stunning and slightly cheaper...
Cold because of that description...come on sort it out.....

The Acoustic sound makes this uniquely awesome. Try a demo in any local currys or JL. I was gob smacked when I first saw this
Just read the T&C's of the cashback and you had to purchase the TV before 24th December in order to claim before end of January
Is there any useful site which runs comparisons on these kinds of sets, for example, why is this almost 1k more than the LG OLED set that pops up on here a lot ? I know the audio isn't great on the LG but thought it was one of the best sets around - 1k can't be just for audio...thanks.

Basically its the processing power and the Sony's ability to upscale (can make SD look like HD)

I am on the lookout for a TV, been rocking the 55x8509C since December 2015 but thinking of upgrading

I like 3 sets - This, the ZD9 and the 9305

Most 'professionals' seem to favour the ZD9 over this set, there is a feeling that OLED is not quite 'there' - yet
After watching some reviews I think it's down to the Sonys better processing and motion handling, motion handling on LGs oleds are quite poor on my c6 it is anyway
That's some heat sure these were around £4000 price when they came out in June
Can you still deffo get the cash back from sony?
Also been trying to work out the difference between the LG b7 and the LG c7 ?
anyone know which is the better set

That's what it says on their website. I don't think they will do false advertising. Also John Lewis is also offering £300 cashback on same set so it must be something from Sony.

For John Lewis though they have already applied the £300 cashback to advertised price to bring their price lower from £2799.99 to £2499.99. Check JL link in original post to see what I am trying to desc

Why is it being advertised then? It's also being offered by John Lewis

If any doubts I would call RGB and check

It's a damn good looking TV though!


Very well said. It is a LG sourced panel as until date it's only LG making OLED Panels.

I have seen both LG OLED 55B7V and this Sony OLED A1 running side by side at my local John Lewis and trust me there is a massive difference. Even though LG OLED55B7V it's a beast of TV when it comes to picture quality The picture quality of Sony A1 was far superior than of LG.

May be an idea to pop into your local Currys or JL and check it

I have now contacted RGB direct and they have confirmed TV is still available for £2299.00 and £300 cashback is still valid and can be claimed for this set if this set is bought in store (Not Expired as rumoured).

I hope this would put an end to £300 cashback doubts and will help you all

@clarkenuttal If that’s true then fantastic, I was going by the terms and conditions from Sony on the claim site. Another company (bestavdeals) have removed the cash back until their Sony rep gets in touch after the holidays.

Make of it what you will but the Sony site does say 24/12/17....
I've seen this in the flesh at £2700 and it looks every penny.

For anyone buying prepare to fall in love with TV again

The only thing with OLEDs is the burn in problem. People do not want to spend that much money with there a big risk of it getting damaged. LG will not replace the panel for free if the TV does get burn in. Not sure about Sony. But this is the only thing holding me back at the moment.

Maybe consider John Lewis to price match? It would give you 5 years warranty

It actually is £2700 but with this deal £2000 and I can't agree more it's worth every penny absolutely jaw dropping picture quality

Still beyond my budget, but voted hot for those that can get it for £1999 after cashback

I would need to ask JL whether they would replace the panel if this problem did occur. LG put the blame on the customer and say it is not a fault with the TV

Thanks for this. As previously said I contacted RGB direct today and they have confirmed that £300 is still valid
I think prices may see an even bigger drop soon. The new models will be revealed in a week or so at CES2018 and will be released March/April

Looks like the winter cashback terms need an update, just had confirmation that the expiry date SONY themselves are stating in the terms is now incorrect. I've amended my edit above, better safe than sorry in my eyes.

Had this been confirmed by Sony then as I’d assumed that the January date shown in the screenshot above is the date by which claims can be raised not purchases?
John Lewis is now £2399

T&C's say also "Claims must be submitted after thirty (30) days from the date of purchase of the relevant Product. Claims submitted before the relevant date will be rejected." so that implies even with the extension to 31st January you would need to buy it by 01/01/2018 ( I think ).

RGB Direct has confirmed they are offering cashback and same cashback is listed on John Lewis. I am not sure how they are doing this but cashback is still being of
Just spoke to Sony Customer Services and they confirmed the purchasing period ended on the 24th December with the cash back period ending on 31st January.... :-(
