You really should do more research before posting this kind of thing.
If you cannot afford to go OLED, which many cannot, this is one of the very best LCDs currently available.

Seems like a bargain.
Why is this being voted cold. It's the best price available and in my opinion the best LED tv currently available
I have the 55”. Awesome tv. Not much more for going bigger.

It isn't cold, I've given heat, but decided I'm waiting for the XF90 in spring. It will cost more, but has Dolby vision support and a better processor.

Bought the TPS deal 65 XE90 when it was on here. The TV is incredible. Also the best smart TV system has to be android!

Not to mention if you don't have space for a 55" TV, 49" is plenty big enough for most people
This tv gets amazing reviews. Voted hot.

In my case I COULD have afforded OLED but did not want a 55" (smallest OLED currently made) for my lounge. I bought this TV instead and have been impressed by its stunning pictures

Yes have to agree. Full Android baked in to the OS and Google Play store access is incredible. This is a great price, but there are more comments on the Internet around Sony reliability in general vs the Koreans, so I'd be partial to the 5 year guarantee from RS or JL even if paying a tad more. The Morrisons card trick brings the JL price down.

Great price for what is one of the best reviewed LED TVs. WhatHiFi gave it a 5 star review at £1500.

Heated.
Got the 55" one of these. Stunning picture, motion handling and the local dimming works well even though it's a reduced zones count version. Android tv has its issues (quite slow..can be speeded up by meddling in system options). Satellite tuner has its issues (no freesat EPG), freeview has its issues and can't be used in conjunction with the satellite tuner. If you use an external set top box or sky box none of this stuff matters though. Netflix, iplayer and youtube work well. 4k on Netflix and youtube are impressive.
I've made many unbiased pros and cons comments and debated with others on the comparison with budget OLED. So you can look up my previous comment on this tv and those of others if you want more info. Caveat: I'm no expert. Others in those threads might be.

It is not actually marketed or described as a Freesat TV in the UK and the satellite tuner is more of a hangover from its multinational nature!

So basically it's a monitor?...with apps, motion handling and zoned backlight. That's how I use mine. Very happy with it for the money.
I understand Panasonic are the only ones that have the freesat EPG built in...that's what I was told in a previous discussion anyway.
My limited experience of the Freeview is ok to be honest. Others complain bitterly about it though...I think something to do with not being able to record it to an external hdd (which you can do on the satellite tuners....if you can find the channel you want to record...mine found over 700 channels nd the only way to trim them down is manually)
Edited by: "SleepyChris" 20th Jan
I'm not flaming this tv...I love mine for the money...I wouldn't return it. I'm just trying to be objective. If you bought this tv as a standalone unit thinking you were getting a freeview and freesat device with recording capability you'd be disappointed. Especially when it comes to navigating the slow menus.

It is sold as a top-quality 4K Freeview HD TV with Youview and Apps like Amazon, Netflix etc. in the UK. Yes it can be used with Freesat to a limited degree but,as you say, without the proper EPG it is unlikely be very satisfactory

How does this work? Is this some kind of offer Morrisions have on? I haven't seen it mentioned
I imagine that Sony sell this all over Europe where free to air satellite is common in some countries and less in others. To save making different versions of the TV they just leave the tuner in. Some companies like Panasonic go to the bother of making a model specific to a country and will remove (or enable/disable via software) a feature.

I much prefer Sony's approach although in this case it means the satellite tuner isn't made to Freesat specifications so EPG won't be nice to use or aimed at the UK viewer.
I need to purchase a new monitor for my pc ... might just get this

Yea doing the same too but most likely will wait till Black Friday / Boxing Day sales. CES 2019 however may continue this vicious cycle

Buy certain £50 gift cards (including Amazon, John Lewis) from Morrisons, and get 6250 Morrison points, which is worth £6.25. So effectively £12.50 off each £100.

its not full Android baked into the OS its missing a lot of things. I have the 49" version.
Is there a significant difference between this and the Samsung UE49MU8000?

johnlewis.com/sam…433

I bought a UE49MU6400 but am returning it due to backlight bleed. I do, however, love the samsung UI. Especially the smart remote and voice control function.
You can get the 49mu8000 for 799 at RGB. Just buy the 49kS8000 over the net. Since this product is discontinued instead of a refund they will be happy to give you the 49MU8000 instead.

True its the Android TV version, same as on the Nvidia Shield and some other Android boxes but with the Google Play store in that build you have access to many apps you won't see on WebOS or Samsung's Tizen.

yes, there are in totally different class. the MU8000 simply cannot do proper HDR unlike this one. this TV is better in everyway. In fact its even better than the next tier samsung QF7. and since this is cheaper, take the Sony over the samsung

The Samsung is edge lit and has fairly poor HDR performance compared to the XE90, which has full-array local dimming (rows of LEDs directly lighting the screen from behind). This results in much better accuracy when displaying HDR highlights, as well as generally better screen uniformity and better black levels. The XE90 also has a voice control function built into the remote, incidentally. It does have some drawbacks of its own (Android TV is a bit crap, especially with the low end SOC Sony are using to power it), but in terms of general image quality it's in a different class to the Samsung.

I suppose if you are after a 49" then this is the best set on the market so I guess it is top end until you go to bigger sizes
No, I'm afraid you did not.
The Sony sets on offer on Amazon on Black Friday were all considerably inferior to this model.

Amazon don't even appear to stock this. They definitely had no stock on Black Friday.
3rd party seller price was £1100+
