I have used hotukdeals a lot and would like to thank everyone for the contribution. This is my first post, so please excuse if there are any discrepancies.

The total cost came to £1,302.99 including delivery using code CP100. If you are a co-op member you get 5% discount added to your account which I am yet to see as I just ordered it. Not sure if the 5% gets applied to the original price or to the discounted price. I used topcashback to visit co-op electricals and can see £26.23 pending to be paid in my account.

Total discount £64.95(5% of £1299)+£26.23+£100 = £191.18 making the price of the TV to £1207.82

Will update once I receive the total discount.

And yes, It's a TV with frog legs. :-)

Slightly off topic but what on earth have they done with the stand? It's horrendous!

That must be some TV if a 49" version is considered a bargain at £1303.
Pay a little more and get from John Lewis with a 5yr guarantee and superior customer service. Cashback "pending" means nothing and it's often a lot less than promised and even nothing at all if there's another offer.
Just bought one thanks op
Co-op Electrical only pays 5% back on specific items that are listed with a little blue co-op logo. These items change. Alas Sony TVs aren’t included at the moment, though they were a couple of weeks ago. Co-op member offers

Huge dollop of Sony tax there!
I'm picking up the 65 inch version this weekend. TV sounds like its rather good. It should be for £2300.
I don't care about the stand. It's a stand. It can also be reversed if people get upset about it or it doesn't match their robot vac.
Is this not oled cash though? I saw it's previous version and I was impressed.

It's the "new model" tax more than anything. All manufacturers do it every year. It's even worse at the high end, where most will be half their launch price by November, whereas this will probably drop to just under £1000 like the 49" XE90 remained before it largely disappeared.

Depends on what you want I suppose. LCDs still certainly have their place for brighter rooms, and can deliver much brighter highlights in HDR content. Plus there's no need to worry about burn-in (even if the likelihood of it is grossly overstated). An OLED will certainly smash this for viewing in a darker room though.

I had OLED budget and I purchased high end LCD instead. OLED is far from the be all and end all.

Many people who i hear talk TVs say that the Sony 90 series such as this one are way more worth it than OLED TVs which is probably due to there not being a massive difference to OLED other than pure blacks but unfortunately current OLEDs will probably not last as long as LCDs due to the inherent flaws which haven’t been ironed out yet which was a similar case during LCD vs Plasma but not sure thats just my take on it but as i said i almost always hear people recommend Sony 90 series for high end.

People also say android tv is laggy on Sony TVs but mine is absolutely fine but i turned off features i found not to be useful such as intelligent programming and the likes since i have virgin tv so i have no real need for it
XE V XF not checked what the differences are..

If interested there are still 49XE9005 available for £954(Hughes 5y warranty) check the new XF model is worth £350 more first.

if you have the space the Sony KD55XE9005 is probably better value at £1054 XF is £1699 a good £500+ more.
(who is not going to pay £100 for an extra 6")

or if you want a better TV there are still KD55XE9305 about for £1399

The Sony 90 series are fantastic LCDs, but no they still don't touch the OLEDs for picture quality. Those saying they do are trying to kid themselves.
