RS won't price match Amazon

I bought this last time. I have to say I think android tv is the biz, much better than the amazon fire stick I was using before. I have WSS, Mobdro, showbox all installed and playing perfectly. It updated the firmware straight away so maybe previous issues with the interface are sorted but from my fortnights use this is a top tv

Ah shame, I guess JL won't either.

Though i'd check again as it says:
• Price Beat only valid against products from authorised UK stores/websites, including Costco and other members only retailers (when VAT added)
– excludes retailers that only accept BACs payment.

I'd rather have the Plasma to be honest.

I have this tv also.

do you have it hooked up to a surround system? as a lot of people who do, me included, get constant sound drop out issues.

also at times the tv becomes completely unresponsive when in standby mode.

these tvs have many well documented issues, some of which were supposed to be sorted in the last update.

also a few advertised features are unavailable, with no time frame for them to be sorted out.

I love my tv, and am sure over time that they will be sorted, but I'm getting to the point of returning mine to john lewis and waiting it out. if the issues aint sorted out in the next update, its gone.

community.sony.co.uk/t5/…213

these issues apply to the whole sony android tv lineup. the sets should never have been released, as they are not fit for purpose

I'm struggling to bring myself to part with it whilst it is still working

Got the w829 at £649 and it's three times the tv that the w905 is. This is a stonking price for picture specs alone forgetting the issues with it.

Has YouView made an appearance yet?

£699 gone out from my account. Damn you hotukdeals

Amazon really need to start doing 5/6 year warranty with their tvs and I'd be all over this.

very tempting

Can anyone post a video on Youtube how this perform? That would be brilliant and first video about this tv?

Looks to be fully claimed. In a way, I'm glad. My current Sony 40 inch LCD tv is over 8 years old but I'm keeping an eye out on price drops for the OLED TV's.

I'm considering keeping my 40 inch until it dies, however long that may take, and hoping that a 4k OLED tv will be reasonably priced by that time.

you will not find these apps on the Google Play Store just download them on the internet browser

This tv has got a brilliant display then has about 20 issues with the tv probably more, makes you think I don't know how it was allowed to be released as it isn't fit for purpose

PlayStation now is a rental service which is built in to the tv like Netflix is you would have to rent what you wanted to play, your ps controller would connect to the tv to play the games your renting from PlayStation now

Will this be good for gaming on? No doubt will be back on sale in next few weeks

The hdmi ports will just change when they feel like it so if you was watching sky on hdmi 1 it can just change itself to hdmi with nothing on.
Netflix with the 4k is amazing when it wants to load and not make your TV crash and also when you do get on sometimes the picture is Jerky.
Sometimes just a green screen.
Hdd reads certain files but then says doesn't recognise the hdd. So downloaded vlc had all my files but then wouldn't play without them jerking. Then downloaded mx player most work ok.
Tv crashes when wants to.
Sometimes the tv doesn't respond to what you have pressed on the remote.
There's a sound sync problem so if I was watching sky on hdmi for 10 mins then sound will go out of sync so I have put the lead into hdmi port has worked fine for 10 mins then put back into hdmi 1 then worked. I was playing destiny in ps4 my character shot an enemy then another 2 and then the sound from my first shot is heard.
I use magic eye to get sky in 2 rooms at same time never had an issue with this tv off I then go to bed to watch it and screen keeps going black then will play again then will go black again. I thought it might have been my other tv it wasn't the new Sony was making this happen I removed the sky from the Sony tv it then worked perfect in the other room.
The tv picture when working is brilliant but it's problem after problem where I think what is the tv doing it frustrates me that it is behaving like that and was allowed to be released like that my previous tv was 47la620v LG, never had one problem always worked perfect how a tv should work. Latest firmware released didn't improve anything on my TV. Hopefully they can fix these issues I would just advise there will be a lot of Tvs that work perfect and wouldn't consider this one as it has many issues with it.
