Quite simply an amazing TV...held in very high regard on AVFORUMS.
Most probably a pricematch with John Lewis and Richersounds if you'd prefer to use them but this comes with a 5yr warranty

£100 more gets you an LG OLED. You're right, this along with the XE9005 are probable the best performing HDR on an LCD. But with such a tiny upgrade cost to OLED...
Well. With oled you will sacrifice HDR completely. So it still has it own target. Some people might prefer this one over Oled, and I wouldn't call it bad choose. If you want to put it in to living room with a lot of light through out a day and you barely watch anything at evening, than this sony is for you.

How will you sacrifice HDR? My LG OLED is plenty bright for even the brightest of days.

You don't sacrifice HDR on OLED at all. There really isn't a compelling reason to take LCD over OLED unless you're watching something with a static image for 10+ hours a day.
Or of course it is out of budget - but I cannot fathom why you'd say yes to £1400 for an LCD but find the extra £100 out of budget.

I didn't find it out of a budget
Personally I would go with Oled as well. But none of LG screen is even half as bright as this sony. Oled might looks much better due to black level, but if you want real HDR you need huge brightness. Once again, many could say Oled is great for HDR, but is more tricking or eyes, I am not saying is wrong or not enough. But its same as to day that 200 hp car have you same speed sensation as 500hp car... When your grandma driver both and you were on passenger seat. In proper conditions with proper material you will see a difference in hdr in Sony favour. But just to be clear, personally think 4k and HDR are **** for now

I have a question which is not specifically about this TV, but related.

I have a John Lewis price match on the KD-55XE9005 for £999 (Currently £1,099 full price). Am I likely to regret buying it at this price in 3 months time? i.e. is it likely to get much lower that £999 when the XF releases?

I wouldn't expect it to get much cheaper than that. It's a cut above any of the other mid-range offerings thanks to the FALD and I'd expect it to sell out fast at under £1000. Even the 49" model has been selling well at those kind of prices.

I think you'll be ok. This set was £1700 at release iirc so I would assume the XF90 will launch at around this rrp too.

£999 is a great price for this TV imo.

Sevenoaks had an 'openbox' one for £999 and I chanced my luck with a price match and surprisingly they accepted it.33155584-w1UlM.jpg
That's XE90 not XE93. Whole different spec and screen, its not only a number, it's different level of quality, speed, colour reproduction etc. When 93 is actually best out of all premium LCD's, XE90 has strong competitor -> MU7000 which is now for £750.

If you go back and read my comment, you’ll see I specifically said it wasn’t about the XE93, but thanks for trying...
You right. Sorry pal, I didn't read your first comment at all ;-)

The xe90 is better then the mu7000. It's nearest rival would be the mu8000 and imo the sony tops that.
