You can read a good review of it here. rtings.com/tv/…20e

The summary:

"The Sony X720E is a decent entry-level 4k TV with a better than average viewing angle and low input lag for gaming. It lacks the fully-featured smart platform found on other Sony TVs and instead, offers only a limited set of apps distributed through the Opera TV Store. Due to the mediocre picture quality in a dark room, it is better placed in a brighter environment where the less uniform blacks won't be an issue."
I assume 8 bit panel not 10 bit - so not really 'HDR' despite stating HDR. TV - specs are an absolute minefield for potential buyers

Thanks

It has low input lag, so yes
How do you know what is made by vestel and what is made decently by the real brand ?
Managed to nab the 65inch version for £749 yesterday. Being delivered Saturday so can report back on quality then.

How are people getting John Lewis to price match this, it isn't listed on the JL website.

Good mid-range TV, it's main issue is that I believe it lacks ITV Hub and All4 apps. It should have good contrast (the rtings review is for a different TV) and good brightness.

It should be considered a non-HDR TV though, as it doesn't have much in the way of hardware required to reproduce the extra information in an HDR signal. The same goes for every other TV at this price though, you have to go up to the XE90 at twice the money before you start seeing significant increases in contrast.

It's not the 10-bit panel by the way, that makes very little difference, it's the local dimming system, wide gamut and tone mapping that have the biggest influences on HDR performance right now.

As far as I know Sony, Samsung, LG, Philips & Hisense design all their own TVs, while Panasonic models above at least 700 are their own.

Vestel are real TVs, they're just budget models.

What sort of things would someone have to look at when making sure they're getting a good deal with a TV?
I know nothing about HDR, input lag, audio quality, refresh rate, LED/LCD advantages etc...
Since it's a huge purchase to buy a new TV, I don't want to be disappointed with it shortly after buying it because I wasn't as informed as I could've been

Found this regarding HDR:

trustedreviews.com/opi…035

found it very useful.
Neighbour likes the look of this. Will just watch it from my window
do not buy this tv or any sony tv with android they are useless had mine for over a year going to bin when i can afford a new one
Not sure how relevant my opinion is to this but I have sony 55 kdl 800 and love it to bits. Smart 3d both which I don't use much due to having xbox. Great picture that I get complimented on and no issues with banding, black contrast etc. Lol only issue I have is the crappy stand it came with

Where from?!
Don't buy a tv for its smart capabilities, buy it for its picture/panel quality. You can buy a roku box for hardly anything and make any tv smart, the smart functionality is likely to only be supported for 4-5 years and then you'll find apps no longer update.

If a television is made by vestel the label on the back will be paper and on the serial number four digits will have a square round them that's the date of manufacture and they are the only company who box the digits off so no matter what name is on the label if it's paper and has the box four digits it's a vestel.
Quality find!

And always get John Lewis to price match

Don't think John Lewis Price match AO, that's what they told me
John lewis don't sell this model. It's not on the website unless somebody knows different?
I've got this TV . I got it from richer sounds with a 6 year guarantee included. I paid £739 for it but with the guarantee that's not to bad. I am very happy with it the picture is a good bit better than my pani plasma which I thought was good. The picture on blue ray and 4k is very good and a leap forward from sd. My friend who have vista's have remarked on how good the picture is when on blurry or above
.
Would still rather buy a vestel built set than an LG rgbw one. At least it's 4k.

It was an Amazon Lightning Deal. It was listed as the 55 inch but clicked through to the 65. I think it was a misprice but that's fine with me!

Think they only match retailers that have physical stores.
Will the A1 Bravia ever drop in price?
Right this Television, or this? Samsung UE55MU6120 - has a higher 100hz default refresh rate, and I can get it for about £650 with argos discount. Any help would be greatful

What other TV's are there out there for similar price, 100 quid either way. Interested too.

I'd look at the screen, personally. Then I'd think - do I like the picture? If so, I'd buy it. Specificaitons are for marketers. Personal judgement is for people.

The problem with this is that to do that when buying a TV online, you need to have it delivered, set it up and then see if you like it. If you don't, it means sending it back.
No longer in stock

True. But can't you make it to a Richer or a JL or equiv? I guess online reviews are pretty handy, but my point is, too many people get hung up on specs. Specs don't always mean a good product. Look at some cars that have insane 'specs' but are rubbish to drive or live with....

Yes it would be good to use with an Xbox one X as it can display in 4K which is the Xbox One X’s maximum output, there are better options though not sure about the price of them, also depends on where it’s going in the house.
Oos
Suggest people compare specs using displayspecifications.com just to confirm panel type if true 4k, 10bit etc.

Is this model new? I Googled and there are only three reviews so far. Thinking whether to purchase it or not.
