Bought this TV in store today, bought insurance for £7.49 per month & paid first month upfront. Store sales person told me to cancel insurance once I got home and discounted the TV by a further £75. Effectively got a months insurance & £68.51 off the price. Also comes with years warranty as standard.
Don’t know if this is a one off or not, might be on nationwide though. Free delivery too.

Sorry but cold, good deal for you but the discount Curry's offer is literally all on a basis to basis situation, and how badly the sales guy wants to hit his targets, extremely unlikely that anyone can walk in and get the same deal.
Point taken, would that not be classed as unfair practice? One person gets a good deal whilst others get the same goods from the same place at a costlier price. If the sales person can discount one then surely they can discount all. Worth a try though if you’re looking for a cracking TV - have the cash available - cost nothing to ask

I would spend another £250+ and get an 55" LG OLED with a 5 Year guarantee previously listed here.

Are there not equivalent 55" TVs for less?

This is an edge-lit, 50Hz, 8+2 bit IPS panel.

I had the XD8005 (the 2016 model of this), which went dead after <2 years. It was a good TV (paid £620), but had bad backlight blooming on dark scenes and judder with some fast moving objects (football being booted downfield). The spec of this 2019 model looks very similar.

I'm sure most people will be happy with this TV, but from a pure value perspective, at £750-800 you're moving into the range where you should be expecting better than edge-lit LED.

EDIT: from scrap of paper when I was buying new TV few weeks ago (don't know if prices still available)
55XF8096 (2018 model) £649 Crampton & Moore (inc 5 yr warranty). Was £584.10 with eBay code.
55NU8000 (2018 - if you can still find it) £700 Argos (one of best reviewed edge LEDs)
55RU8000 (2019 - successor to NU8000, but arguably not as good) £674.10
55Q6FN £692.10 (entry level QLED)
55SK8100PLA (2018) £600 John Lewis (edge LED, 100Hz
OLEDs at £900 (Philips) or slightly higher (LG).

I just think north of £700 is now steep for a mass-market edge-lit LED, especially without 5 year warranty).

Sony spec says this is a Direct lit LED - Not LED Edge lit as you state, Direct-lit LED backlights are an offshoot of full-array backlighting, in that they use LEDs spread across the entire back panel of the TV

Fair enough if it's direct-lit. I couldn't find the spec and saw that the XF8096 (2018) was edge-lit and you don't really see meaningful upgrades year to year. £730 sound OK then if you don't get bad backlight blooming. Is the picture fine on dark scenes? Happy with the set?
I bought this after reading several positive reviews, still to be delivered. So will wait and see. This is my third Sony TV, last one is 3D tech and still working well. Only 1080P so will use for gaming in my man cave. Looking forward to Sony 4K experience...
