No, prices are dropping as technology is moving on, i.e. Super Ultra HD, 10 bit, OLED TVs are coming out.

For the price it's much better than all the 8 bit 4k TV deals that float about here. True 10 bit is much much higher in price.

Same deal was getting hot yesterday at almost £80 more than price for this deal.

never touching Sony android tvs again. So slow and constantly resets.

thanks OP great TV at great price!! will go nicely with my pro... hope it doesn't spoil my psvr experience!

bought this in 49 inch for £599 from Argos and a PS PRO. So far the combination is great. Great colours with Sony TVs as always.

Won't have Playstation Now.

I've got the 9305 and like the operating system. It's not as quick and easy as LG but I like the built in youview and chromecast. It's just updated itself to marshmallow which has tidied things up a bit

Too bad. JL dont price match amazon

Have had 2 of these, the slowest piece of rubbish ever.

I'm there between this and the Hisense H55M7000 for £679 and 6 year warranty at RS. The Hinsense seems to have a VA panel, and since viewing angle shouldn't be much of an issue on my room that's probably an advantage.

I'm not overly worried about smart tv apps (I use a chromecast), but I believe that Sony is the winner there.

Choices... choices...

Will the Youview on this pick up the extra channels that BTTV subscribers get? Or, as I suspect, you only get the regular channels?
I had discounted Sony as I hate their android implementation, however this is a great price. This, the M7000 for £650 or the LG 55uh850 for £725????? Hmmmm

It's £599 at prc and John Lewis price matched but out of stock now. Richer sounds should price match prc:

About bloody time this dropped in price.
Still not low enough to buy yet though

No it won't pick up the BT channels.

Don't punish yourself with Sony Android TV. I did for nearly a year, and two replacements.
Surprised myself that I'm much happier with a Samsung Tizen one. Much faster, way snappier, never crashes, much simpler menu system that I didn't think I'd prefer but I really do.
Not missing Google Cast, Youtube Netflix Plex all support casting regardless.

The Sony OLED looks fantastic - but noway I could afford £1400 for a telly

so much negative reviews. my cousin has the model before this and picture was amazing. this TV really that bad?

truly awful software in this TV. the Sony forums for this TV are rammed with people complaining about issues such as sluggish epg, rebooting on a almost daily basis, remote control issues. excellent picture but don't bother with it. sony have been aware of the issues since the TV came out but they choose to ignore them.

I have the previous year (2015) model, and it's been 100% fine with Updates and operations, no issues at all.
I needed a new TV for an extension we are building, so I ordered it this morning. RS would not price match because Amazon don't sell it with a 5 year warranty. As only 2% of Sony TV's get repaired under 5 years of age according to Which, I'll shoot for Amazon. :-)

Is any good?

I have the 49 inch and it sometimes reboots or lags when trying to change the volume.

You're a little short, try £3000+

Heat! This will give a great picture. You don't buy tvs for Android. Or at least i don't!

Latest software update mid April has helped. Turning off youview, which isn't very good anyways, helps. There are some further tweaks in the settings too. Best thing with Android is the availability of apps, including Kodi.

Heat but native motionflow is 50Hz

Agreed, I still have mine, and happy to get a newer version. If it was not good, I would not be buying another.

I have the 55" XD70 model and quite happy with that and this is an upgrade!

I am ready to pull the trigger, been looking at the 659dz or whatever its called lol

Also we are getting Nougat this year

great tv and price; got one!

AWFUL TV... it pains me to say that as Ive been a huge fan of SONY TVs for ever. Ive owned this TV for 3 months and it has slowly driven me insane.

I'm on my second now and asking John Lewis to take it back. Painfully slow, constantly freezes, crashes and non responsive.

The picture quality is awesome and 4K gaming looks unreal but the operating system is a complete joke. Purchase at your peril!
