Refreshed 11th May (Posted 3rd May)
*Update 11th May - use code TV30 which gives £30 off tv spend (tv spend needs to be £500 to £1000 to make the code work)

Also 999 at JL.

I'm undecided between xe90 and q7f, I ordered q7f at a local shop for £1099 but have to wait 3 to 4 weeks. Is it worth the wait and price difference?

But if you're talking xe93 money you may as well pay extra and go full oled.
999 is still just 99 more than I'm willing to pay.

Or simply wait a bit longer. When the XF9305 will come out, the XE model will be much cheaper. (If still available)
OLED TVs are not bright enough for me yet.

Why is there this idea that OLED is the only choice when you have a £1500 budget? Do these people actually look at their potential purchase before buying or just blind follow? Had budget for both, took an XE93 over an OLED and couldn't be happier.
Thanks, bought this a couple of weeks ago from JL for £1049 so submitted a further price match request as purchased within last 28 days.
Nice one.

Because if you look at the reviews.. All the reviews the old always come out better.

Xe93 is a very nice tv but if you go 300 more from xe90 to xe93 you may as well then pay the extra 200 and go oled.

Blindly follow? I've been waiting for price to drop for ages.

Still kicking myself I didn't snap up the e6 at Christmas when they screwed the price up. Had one in the cart but didn't buy because the 500 squid redemption couldn't be guaranteed and wasn't willing to gamble.

What oled are you waiting for and at what price
I have this tv. It’s stunning on my Xbox one x. If anyone buys it I’d happily share my settings with them. Took me a few days to optimise it for gaming.

No, you still don't get it.
I could have bought an OLED, but on looking at the two TV's side by side, the XE93 looked better than the OLED at the bright end of the scale.
There is no"might as well spend another £200...." why would I spend an additional £200 on a TV that looked inferior?
So I lose out on the blackest blacks - not a big problem. What I gain is at the other end where the LCD gives a brighter image and zero chance of screen burn.

The blindly follow is that most people cannot understand why people would choose an LCD once they have a budget of £1500. They blindly assume that "new OLED technology is the best". If this was the case Sony would not have sold any of their high-end LCD's - they did.

Richer Sounds appear to have a typo on their website.

Sony website says:

HEVC SUPPORT

Yes (Up to 3840x2160/60p 10bit)

Google searches bring back the same result - 10bit.

Sony made the best LCD screens, blow Samsung out of the water. Oleds input lag is lower than LCD. The colours are more natural on OLED.

If OLED isn't the best, why is the A1 the Sony flag ship tv.. why sell it 1k more than the xe93?

I'm not blindly following.. Google best 4k tv for gaming.. OLED win. Best for film OLED wins.

If reading / watching lots of reviews, going to shops and seeing the real life picture is not blindly following.

My girlfriend has banned me from saying the words. Tv, Currys/ pc world, 4k, her and Dolby vision lol

No, the processor isn't powerful enough. The xe93 got the firm ware upgrade.
Do you think this will get cheaper or will the stock run out?

I'm considering this and upgrading my One S. Man... This is gonna be expensive
Considering biting at this price. How good is the upscaling of DVD's and SD broadcasts on this TV?
Any one know if this set is included in the RS 'Bank Holiday Sales'? Could we be looking at further price reductions?

You can get an extra £10 off using the VIP discount voucher.

I was going to say that's not the Richer Sounds page but it turns out that the specs for the 49" are correct but the 55" specs are indeed wrong
