This TV has been dropping in price a lot recently, but I've seen people here saying they were holding out for sub £700. You get that now plus the 5 year guarantee from JL, seems like a good time to buy, I doubt it will get any cheaper before the new sets come in.

Seems pretty hot, good telly and the 5 year warranty from john lewis is a bonus.

Add @ John Lewis to the title

Damn it I brought the 50" one a couple of weeks ago in the price match shame I def would of gone for this one for £100 more

Got this delivered yesterday for £779 will JL refund difference?

Great price for a great TV. Just don't see the point in investing in a crippled 4K set when my inernet connection can just about carry a 1080p signal and there is next to no disc content about.
Voted hot. Seriously contemplating..

nice

Should I buy this or stick with my G20? Also any decent 60 inch TVs on offer? Thanks

Hi, what's the difference between KDL55W829BBU and KDL55W815BSU?

815 is silver, 826 is black according to the note on the product description.

Apparently the 55" KDL-50W829B has a better picture compared to the KDL55W815B.

That's the one I'm holding out for on a price drop, although JL don't sell the 829.

Currys currently sell the W829 for £779, so hoping they'll have a slight drop in price soon.

Really ? I got my 55W829B from JL a few months ago (£799 with Sony soundbar).

I'm an idiot. They do, but like Madcelt said, 829 is black and the other is silver. You can select the colour in the JL tab.

Got a price match on this for £719 yesterday, glad I waited until today to buy it

Excellent deal. I've been watching this TV (no pun intended) since it was at £1200. Up to now I've been getting John Lewis to price match either HiSpek or Simply Electrics which tend to be the cheapest.

TEMPTED!!!!

love how the price is dropping fast. 50" tv looks very small since put on the wall. So may have to wait for 65" to drop in price

TEMPTED II here as well lol
What's the recommended viewing distance for a 55"er?
Edit: looks like 2.5m is about right..

Here's some logs to gain more heat

Talking about heat, this thing only consumes 61watts! Unreal...

NICE. but thought Sony Tv division will be no more...like Vaio and mobiles? after sales service???

I've been waiting since xmas for this to drop. Sub £700 now it's time to order. Heat

Oh my god I only ordered this Tv in October that's 5 months ago for KDL50W829 for £799.00 now the 55 has gone down these prices are going to go down more I think what shall I do can I get price difference from John Lewis as that is where I bought my one from or are they going to refund me for the Tv

hmm, i'm not sure if i should get a new lcd or if i should wait for oled to get cheaper

i had a sony W905 but i sold it because of some of these problems
i saw this set in currys and i saw some banding, once the problems are pointed out it's harder not to notice them oO

had the 55W829 for a couple of weeks now stunning TV. Excellent with films and games. (PS4)

Just ordered. Been waiting on this and had a price match with JL for £719 at Simply Electrical. Tried to get JL to price match for Fenwicks Newcastle yesterday for £699 but they rejected it. Pleasant surprise to find it reduced today.

Sony centre have offered me this deal for 729 with 5yr warranty but including a 3d bluray player that's worth £110. Any opinions on what's better?

Any cashback anywhere for JL?

Don't think so. I would get this but I already got another TV

This is the 50W829B according description. The 55W815B is same panel, but silver frame.

Hot from me, this is a great TV.

If its any help to anyone a Healthservicediscounts card that you preload give 5% cashback at JL. Card costs £2.99.

I would have thought that 5months was a little too long, I mean where does it stop... I bought my TV for £450 five years ago.. its now worth £150, can I claim a refund?? That said, the only stupid question Is the one that's not asked, so give it a shot

Shame, If this was the 829 black version I would of snapped this up, I'm sure that will drop in price soon enough though !
Out of interest when are Sony's 2015 sets coming out as the prices of these will drop even more then surely ?

It is for the 829 black version,just select the black one

I bought this 3 weeks ago and the picture is excellent. Price matched it with Simply Electricals even though we got the free JL stand at the time. Doubt I can price match again though for the extra £20, but will be selling the stand anyway.

I bought from John Lewis for £779 with the TV Stand, they have refused the price match as their current TV does not come with a TV Stand.

Apparently they want to "ensures consistency for all our customers and ensures the policy is transparent".

Ha ha ha ha.

I'm returning mine and buying from Richer Sounds who have for the same price.

I'm getting this delivered tomorrow from John Lewis. I already had a price match from Simply Electricals for £720, but just rang for a refund instead. So if you've ordered in the last 28 days ring up for a £80 refund.
