HDR without dimming features on the TV equals clouding and blooming.

in before anyone not 10 bit

Cold not 10 bit X) joking! But 55inch was £599 few weeks ago! So I'll pass but thanks!!

Thought this was a good deal...if only JL would price match

I'd say it is a good deal but why would you give JL the chance to price match it and then give them your money?

They will price match if Argos have it in stock

What I believe to be a Sony KD49XD7005 Is currently 550 pounds from Amazon. .

amazon.co.uk/gp/…1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1479592742&sr=1-1&m=A3P5ROKL5A1OLEπ=SX200_QL40&dpPl=1&dpID=51zfVLAW-pL&ref=plSrch

However it lacks Trluminous Colour this model in Argos has. I'm surprised the amazon deal hasn't been posted on HUKD yet.

Well to be fair it isn't, but it's still the best you're getting for the money so you can either wait until next year when TVs will all be true 10bit and there will be more OLEDs and Full Array backlighting... or you can buy now and get 8 + 2.

Care to explain? I'm thinking of upgrading my 1080p tv to a 4k

This is 10 bit according to the Sony site

Beware, those prices are from 3rd party sellers with 0% feedback. Any seller that asks you to email them first in the description is a scam.

Good luck with a price match at JL. They only sell KD49XD8099BU and do not accept it as the same tv.

Apparently it IS 10-bit, but the colour gamut isn't as wide as some 8-bits, so it doesn't necessarily count for very much. 8-bit with dithering is comparable anyway.

This is an IPS panel though, so be aware blacks won't be great, although you'll get better viewing angles.

6 Year Warranty from Richer Sounds worth the the extra money.

So what's the difference between this, the 8077 and the 8099 other than colour? sony.co.uk/ele…ons this says they're 10bit..

One is silver, one is black... that's it. Same set otherwise. 8099 seems the name of the 8088 in other countries. In UK it's the 8088 (black). 8077 is silver. They are all 10-bit.

So seems a pretty decent priced 10 bit hdr TV then

​The TV won't be able to display white on black correctly. For example a moon on a black sky. You will see light leaking into the black sky.

​Thanks for the heads up. I didn't spot that at all. 99% of the time I order only if something is sold be or fulfilled by Amazon direct. I wasn't interested I'm buying so hadn't checked on this occasion. I agree, anyone who wants contact first; nope.

whaats 10 bit?

Its 8 bit not ten if it was a 10 bit panel with them specs you would be asking for your money back as the specs on that panel cannot produce 10bit HdR

Please tell me how you have come to this conclusion? I understand that the lower peak brightness doesn't allow it to reach HDR Premium standards but beyond that the US equivalent X800D reviewed by the much trusted rting.com had this to say "The X800D features a wide color gamut. It covers almost all of the P3 space, which is great. When watching HDR content, colors are rich."

then show me the stats that prove this is a 10 bit panel you contradict yourself saying it cant produce HDR premium yout argument is colours are rich?? This set will read HDR meta data and it has good colour but it doesn't have good local dimming or get bright enough to display HDR well

You see that's the thing, I'm not saying that is 100% 10bit panel, why? Because I have no concrete proof, the only evidence out there thus far is that rtings have tested the US equivalent of the TV and say that is has a 10bit panel.

Argos state that this is a 10 bit panel
Richersounds And sony customer care state this is a 8bit panel that can accept a 10bit signal

I have right now this second just got off the phone with the Plymonth Sony Centre branch and they say it's 10bit, but will not take advantage of full HDR due to less brightness, who do you believe? Also on avforums with a lot of informed people and nobody knows 100%, people are begging to know on there.

edit

Have also just spoke to someone at richersounds in plymough, I ask if the XD80s are 8 or 10 bit, he says confidently "8bit", then when I ask him how do you know that he says "just from reading around on the internet!" lol, this is what I mean it's crazy, nobody really seems to know.
