God I must be poor,

10bit means more colour than 8bit


This is the screen itself, the bit with all the pixels on it that creates the various shades of colour, which are then lit by the backlight. For HDR, you ideally want a 10-bit panel, which means that each pixel’s red, green and blue sub pixels can produce 210 or 1024 different shades, which are then combined with the other subpixels to create a particular colour. 8-bit panels can only produce 16.8 million colours, but 10-bit panels have 1.07 billion colours to choose from.

I'd care & this is about my budget (not that I can afford one yet).

HDR is way more of a draw imo than 4k, the difference is stark, & whilst those numbers may seem obscene, the difference between the colours is what makes HDR so effective, so are extremely important in making the image so vidid, the HDR & the greater contrast it allows, in doing so.

Isn't the 55 version true 10bit?

Also, this TV on black friday came with a "free" £250 sony 4k blu-ray player or soundbar. Just to compare.
I bought the 49 inch version before Chrismas for £529 from argos. Then got a 10% cashback from Barclays as they had a cash back deal with Argos.

Picture is very good imo. I'm basing that on my cat, crapping himself at lions on wildlife programs. He never noticed with the old unit.

The Android can be a little slow at times. I give the tv a reboot every couple of weeks. Hold the power button for 5 seconds or so. It's no hassle.

Content is very good app wise. Easy to connect your phone etc. Can install kodi etc
55" is 10bit as per Trusted Reviews:
Squeezed into the 55XE8596’s screen is a 4K 3840 x 2160 pixel count. Sony also claims support for the HDR10 and broadcast-friendly HLG HDR formats

The problem is that there is no 49 inch model
Nice price. I’d rate this tv as 7 out of 10. Don’t like the operating system. Some images look incredible and some images look very pixelated and artificial.
Yeah the UI on OS is a bit glitchy and slow at times. But it's cool having access to google play apps, too. VLC, Twitch etc.

Plus the remote has a Netflix button. Neat.

This is inaccurate and misleading. Please correct your post.
Anyone know if the XF80 or 85 is any good? No reviews yet only manufacturer repetition!

I'm tempted - it's got a good review on Techradar, the upscaling of SD content is meant to be very good.

It is for most people but no doubt the credit cards will be buying this
As an alternative the Samsung 55inch MU7000 is definitely 10 bit panel...and around this price...
8 bit + FRC or 10 bit = a distraction, you're really asking the wrong question. There's so much more to image quality and HDR than that! You need to judge from seeing yourself or professional reviews, where specs are tested AND viewers opinions from blind tests are evaluated.

See here: avforums.com/thr…61/
Try rtings.com, avforums is good too but obviously there's some less educated posters there.

That doesn't mean the panel is 10-bit. HDR10 is just one of the HDR coding formats.

I have this TV and did a lot of research around the net before buying to ensure the panel was 10 bit. The confusion lies with the 49" 8 series models which are 8 bit.
Well it's very cheap for a 10 bit panel, I'd be sceptical.
To those complaining that the 10bit spec has been corrected to 8bit+FRC. Yes, it very much does matter and the more people know the truth the better.

In my opinion these companies should be banned from calling units 10bit if they’re truly not - that should be common sense really. In my opinion & anyone else who owns an 8bit+FRC will likely agree. If you’re bothered about HDR then only go for a 10bit panel. As 99.9% of people wont notice or get the benefit from 8bit+FRC because the screens as well as not able to show the full scale of colour predominantly will also not produce enough nits of brightness to make any of it worthwhile anyway.

While HDR does look amazing on a proper screen a lot of people are being duped in to paying extra for HDR compatibility that you actually will get better fidelity and performance out of if you disable the feature.

What’s really annoying & I really struggle to see how they are legally allowed to continue is the companies themselves will continue to tell you and retailers that they are 10bit panels until they are proven to be 8bit & even then they still try it on.
