​you'll probably find that john lewis' price will fall into line at some point today....they usually follow each other price wise within a day or two....
Do you know if this is the one that dropped to £999 not so long ago, then went up to £1249 in store price on Sunday and U.S. now back down to £999 please
Sorry that should is back down to
How would the overall quality of the picture on this TV compare with that of our Panasonic GT50 Plasma.?
Not having seen this TV I am still not sure if our GT50 would still be considered, when viewing HD, to have a great picture in comparison.
I understand that it uses edge lit LED compared to the Plasma we own but I don't know how good they have got over the years..?
You can get the 65" for £1799.10 using a code at Currys, with free sound bar also
I got the 55" 1080p, non-3D one for £800 so this is a great offer! The best thing is the android TV, means you can get Kodi and all the free content that comes with that!

Been looking to buy a GT50, give me a shout if you want to sell excellent deal BTW, no doubt JL will price match.

Yes this is the same one except they are adding a soundbar this time. I have been tracking this one for avfew months now, just the wife to sweet talk and i am going for it.
If anyone who has one can answer... is the response time of the Android system a bit annoying? I've heard it's slow and cumbersome but want to consider the Sony TV alongside LG's products, which appeal for their OS but maybe not as much as Sony for their picture quality. Thanks.
if this TV hasn't got it already it will be supporting HDR

You are all the way over at Whitley Bay and I'm close to Manchester. We bought our GT50 new from JL in May 2013 with a five years warranty. Not sure on value etc.

Still trying to find out information on this Sony.
Tempted with this but the reviews about the poor control and software is slow and not very good!
Yes, lots of poor reviews of these Android sets and clouding issues on AV Forums also.
^^^^ I was hopeful that the impending software update due 4th November will address some of the Android issues, or will those remain...?

Finding very few reviews of this particular model so far.

Stop reading old reviews.... And get off the bandwagon and actually go in to a store and test it.

I couldn't find any, although is this not the same panel from the 55" X9??
Super lovely TV, i bought for 1300

I wouldn't have thought so....?

Looking at the PANASONIC VIERA TX-55CX700B as that also is the same price at Currys.
Bought this a while ago at Richer Sounds for the same price plus the 6 year warranty. I think the picture is great and it will get the YouView functionality on the 4th November via a download....

Reviews on Richer Sounds - "2 / 5 GREAT PICTURE BUT SERIOUS SOFTWARE PROBLEMS 23 October 2015" - this seems quite recent to me?
Any update on JL pricematch? Thanks
You can make a cuppa by the time you've pressed a button on the remote control and it actually carrying out the command. Great TV, poor Android and remote sync.
Samsungs whazz all over these for picture and user interface

Side by side a Samsung doesn't beat this on picture quality. Sammys overly bright, orange skin tones, lack of a decent upscaler of 4K's, poor details in image and over sharpens image to compensate. We all have our opinions but get most side by side the Sony wins on picture quality.

Still an LCD with a light behind it. You'll miss the subtlety of colour and decent black that you get on your Panny. Have a look at the LG OLED.

...and I doubt that much will change to make that much different, in a meaningful way with that technology.

Looks like my Panny GT50 might still have a few years worth of use left in it, much to the relief of my wallet.

Be careful of the Panasonics, I bought the TX55CR430B and found out its actually made by vestel, cheap piece of crap that wouldn't sync to my Xbox One or the Sky TV remote. Picture was awful too. Sent it back and im off to purchase this tonight.

Go and test one!



Going to John Lewis tonight to have a look at one in the flesh, hope they have the remote this time as last time I was looking at TV's the "sales" guy couldn't find the remote and expected me to buy the TV take it home and test it and if I didn't like it I could return it!

Looks like John Lewis offer a 90 day refund policy... anyone had any issues on returning a TV after a while if it is not faulty and just didn't like the thing?

I purchased the 49" version 2 weeks ago and update the software straight away.

Not had a problem, picture is nice, upscalling does wonders
Yes I have ordered one from John Lewis and they price matched it.
