Sony KD-49XE9005 49" 4K HDR LED Television £999 at Crampton and Moore

For those searching a 49/50 inch high end TV.... best TV (imo) on the market (Samsung QE49FAM way to expensive and not perfect by any means). Don't think it has been posted anywhere. Might go down tomorrow, who knows! But decent retailer. I wish there was more choice on the market, LG not coming up with an OLED in that size is a shame.

Been a 55 would have been there in a shot. As for prices coming down. I would say watch this space. One thing for sure I won’t be parting with my money till tomorrow

I agree LG not having a 50" OLED is annoying. It's pushed me into a 55" when a 50" was more suitable.

This is a hot deal

Its a good price but personally glad i went for the £1050 deal that included a soundbar, as i've managed to sell it for £150 thus making it cost in total £900, but this seems to be the best deal around currently

Not the best discount. Better wait.

Electronic Empire? have it for £918 or pick up in store for £888 no 5 year warranty though...
Its banned though by HUKD wonder why?

John lewis will price match this if anyone would prefer to buy through them aswell.

Site doesn't look particularly great and it says X-DISPLAY PRODUCT AS GOOD AS NEW (WITH FULL 12 MONTHS GUARANTEE), so i'd rather pay the extra £80 and get 4 years extra warranty and know nobody has been poking and prodding my tv in a store

Close to biting as I've had this earmarked for a while. I'm stalling because OLEDs have recently plummeted in price but 50 inch is really my max and 55 seems to be the smallest OLED panel they're doing at the moment.

Currys currently have this for 100 quid more and I'm hoping they drop to match this as I can get 7% off through work.

Great deal! 😊

I think with the 55" LG OLEDs coming down to £1349, the likes of Sony are going to have to bring their prices down in response.

I can see the 55XE9005 going sub £1000 before not too long.

55" could be had for £1080 yesterday (minus selling price of soundbar), has expired again now but I will post if it re-appears!

That is currently available for £1124 with Co-op Electrical (using a discount code). I'm sure a better offer will be seen between now and Monday.

I reckon discounts will go beyond just this week.

Were moving into 2018 now and they'll be a new generation soon being shown off at CES in January.

This model was first introduced in March 2017 so there should be discounts with retailers getting rid of old models and preparing for new stock.

How long will it be until this will drop to around 700/800 does anybody have any idea? Is there a smaller version of this same model that is more likely to drop to that amount

I got the 55 inch one a few weeks back with the co op deal.

Brilliant TV but a word of warning, this TV can be dazzlingly bright. I can't watch this in a darkened room or even with bias lighting as it gives me eye fatigue and subsequently tension headaches after about 90 minutes!

I have to watch it in a fully lit room or turn the brightness way down.

This is only 950 nits so I can't imagine what the 2000+ nit sets are like! I have never had headaches from looking at a screen before I got this.

As for the performance, games on the Xbox one X look jawdroppingly good in hdr and to me there is no noticeable input lag, the android os has been great and I have had no problems with lag as other people have mentioned.

The black levels are good unless watching in a darkened room, then they are dark grey at best. (But you will have frazzled retinas as mentioned above)

Overall I am very pleased with the purchase, but in my opinion maybe go for an oled or edge lit if you are particularly susceptible to eyestrain and are forced to watch tv in a darkened room! Or be prepared to turn the brightness down!

Its hard to say but if you look at pricespy for last years comparable model the KD-55XD8005 it started at:
£1149 in July
£998 October
£798 Dec
£749 January

Hopefully these will follow a similar path, if not even greater, given the big discounts coming in on the LG OLED's.

This is the TV you want for HDR gaming. Unless your rich.

if it gets to this price plus the soundbar, i'll bite.

Nice one for that! I'll screenshot your comment for reference, this long 2 year(ish) wait I've done for a great 4k tv at a reasonable price has been so hard I keep just wanting to give in and buy any £300/£350 4k tv but I know that waiting for a cheap deal on a TV like this one will make watching movies/TV and gaming in HDR sooo muchh better! My limit has always been around 600-700ISH or 800 MAX though for a proper good HDR tele. I just cannot justify spending a grand on a tele, it seems a waste when they seem to drop by hundreds after around 6 months - 1 year - 18 months of being released.

Are you talking about HDR or general viewing? I'm fine with mine at the recommended levels for general viewing (brightness 8 and gamma -2) but I haven't watched too much in HDR yet.

HDR and SDR. I am watching the 55 from about 6 feet away (perhaps a bit too too close) and I generally use the recommended settings from the review on avforums.com, or game mode.

For me, watching it in the dark is like looking at my Mobile phone at full brightness in a darkened room from about 6 inches away, which for me gets uncomfortable after a while.

As I said before, I am fine watching in a well lit room so perhaps I am just susceptible to eye strain!

1k for 49 inch

I payed 1079 with sound bar the other week and it was the 55 inch . Sure you should able getbtbat deal again tomoz

Hoping 55 version is a good price tomorrow, otherwise I'm going LG OLED. The XE90 was a steal when the B7 was £1000 more but now it's only £200 different. Price drop should be imminent.

55 is £1100 atm on PowerDirect. Still Holding out for better.

I don't find it overly bright. You can use the 'clear' motion flow setting which helps dim the screen.

I bought this today in John Lewis with the sound bar for £999. The combined deal is no longrt available on the John Lewis website, however they are honouring in store. John Lewis Cheadle. Price matched as displayed as 1199 including free sound bar. JL will price match again if the price goes down over the next few weeks!

Same price at John Lewis now.

Same price at John Lewis now.



Up to 1099 now at Crampton but John Lewis still doing 999

...and now back to 999 on Crampton again.

Sadly don't see anyone taking a bigger leap on this one today

No...agree. I was ready to cancel an order I have with richer sounds for this TV + soundbar for £1029.
Whilst the TV is cheaper today (999), £29 for a £200 soundbar is pretty good I reckon.

Bunch of places doing it for £999, like John Lewis, Huges, PC world, I can wait for a better bargain or just get one bought I went with Richer Sounds as they added a year warranty. Still very annoyed a 55" won't fit.

Being able to fit a 55” changes everything:) sadly I cannot
