Sony BRAVIA KD65XE9005 65" Smart Built in Wi-Fi UHD 2160P LED TV with Freeview HD £1489 with code at Hughes

Found 14th Mar
Been looking for a new large TV to replace my Hisense that has terrible banding when watching motorsport. This looks like the best available at this price point (also considered the Samsung MU8000 and Panasonc EX750B.)

Hughes have £60 off if you're spending over £800 (Code: EXTRA60), there's also ~£30 from TCB. Mine is being delivered on Friday.

Blurb:
The KD65XE9005BU LED TV will leave you amazed at how life like the contrast and breathtakingly realistic the image quality is on the Sony XE90. With its exceptional detail of 4K, the TV will come with a brilliant brightness and colour.

As TV screens are generally getting bigger, so are the number of pixels inside the actual televisions. This 65" will have up to 4 times the number of pixels of what 1080p HD TV's will; this will deliver stunning realism, a natural motion and an incredible detail.

With motionflow XR 1000Hz featured on the TV screen, this will allow the TV to refresh at a much higher rate than what it normally would. This will make sports and fast moving action look a lot smoother, sharper and much more natural than ever before, all with a reduced blur and judder.

With a whopping 4 HDMI connections you can connect your XE9005 Series TV to a Blu-ray player, games console, soundbar or sound base with ease.

you are kidding, right?
Voted hot as it's currently the best price but I had hoped this would drop by another couple of hundred now that xf90s have started appearing in shops. Suspect there's not too much stock needing shifted and it is already much much cheaper than what anyone's asking for for the XF

Decent price for a good TV. I have tried to get hold of the KD65XE9305 at £1680 but everywhere seems to be sold out.
I got the KD65XE9305 Monday night from John Lewis, 1 am in the morning they had 5 in stock, 7am they had 2
Good tv, I’m hoping the 55 inch comes down in price soon
How's this compare to a LG oled b7?

What's the difference between the 9005 and the 9305?

What's the difference between the 9005 and the 9305?



from here

Main difference is the processor (Xe93 is better) but the XE90 is direct LED lit rather than the Edge lit on the XE93 (XE90 is better for pictures that pan - I watch a lot of motor sport and the banding on my last TV was awful)

UHD 3,840x2,160 or true cinema 4k 4096xunspecified?


Its common and accepted to state 3840 as 4k, as far as i know all mainstream tvs are only 3840 yet are described as 4k, uhd and 4k are used interchangeably. Im glad they went with 3840, more practical to be a perfect multiple of 1920x1080.

Ultra HD can refer to a resolution, or a more general specification. Ultra HD as a specification is at least 3840 x 2160, not exactly. So 4K and 8K are both Ultra HD. UHDTV-1 is the Ultra HD resolution. So having Ultra HD and 4K in the title is perfectly acceptable and true.

What's the difference between the 9005 and the 9305?


9305 is much brighter and HDR looks more impressive, so is more like Samsungs Q7/8/9 range. The 9005 is more like an OLED, better blacks and a bit less bright.

So I guess the new XF models are way more impressive than the XE? If so I’ll rather wait

They are doing away with the xe93 and xe94 replacement so no xf93/94. I've read a few reviews/first impressions and the F is barely any better than the E. The F90 is no where near as bright as the E93 and is barely any brighter than the E90. Although E90 has 20 local dimming zone, F90 60, E93 72, but flagship Z9D has more than 600. I really wouldn't say the F90 is as good as the E93, let alone E94.

I posted a deal for the 65xe9005 for £1400 and it went quite hot, the 65xe93 has been £1600 ish and the 65xf90 is £2300 I think, so xe93 at the current price or hold on until it drops would be a good idea, or if you are thinking about xf90 money the xe94 would be a much much better option for that much money. Anyway, no point in holding out for XF is the main point, unless you wait another 6-8 months for it to drop, but then the XG will be round the corner and so on.

I bought this TV on Saturday from Richer sounds and I have to say I am totally blown away by the picture quality. Both standard netflix and xbox one x look fantastic

Good summary.
Although I'd say the main difference between the XE90 and the new XF90 isn't the brightness but the processer. The Xtreme cpu in the XF is Sony's best and it comes with a few great features.

I own an XE90 btw. I can tell you that brightness isn't everything if you are watching in a dim/dark room. In HDR it can get uncomfortably bright. To my eyes anyway.
I wouldn't want the 9305, it's known to be way brighter. It would literally pierce my eyes!

I'm waiting to see what the competition launches and few months for prices to start dropping then I'll probably upgrade to the XF90.

Yeah, the 93/94 have a stepup in processor compared to the 90. Although in the several reviews I've read Sony's processor for the LG OLED panel is beaten by Philips and Panasonic, so I wouldn't let that swing me too much.
