Just went and paid for a new Bravia and noticed this offer in the shop:

Sony KD65X9005BBU 65" 4K LED TV + HTCT370 Soundbar Pack.

Note: The reason the shop are selling this for such a crazy cheap price for a 65-inch 4K TV is that it's the display model. It looked mint to me and the guy said it comes with a 5-year Sony UK Warranty so I thought someone might find this interesting.

Can someone help me with answering two questions?...

1/ Where did the kids university fund go?
2/ Where did this massive TV come from?

Once answered, I'll be ordering one!!

HOT

I'm surprised it's not been snapped up given that there is a free HDMI lead with it.

4k or wait for 8k?

Saw this TV in John Lewis, was blown away... Still above my price bracket, but getting there.

4k or wait for 8k?


wait for 8k and than wait for 16k when 8k comes out

Does anyone actually broadcast in 4K?

sorry thats 3 months savings (well ~ 2.5) and i have no space lol

As above - is there anything you can watch in 4k? I know BBC were only trialling it this year. By the time they do these things will be 1/4 of the price.

University funding will cost you a hell of a lot more than that.

that is an amazing tv and an amazing price. ... especially with 5 years warranty. i already have one and it was a bit more than that price

what's the best way of viewing pure 4k source material on this? blue ray? PC?

Bargain hope someone gets this

pc requires some top end graphics cards. blurays im not too sure on whether its upscaling to (false uhd) or true uhd input

Netflix is good but 15mb broadband minimum is required to run it. plus its compressed 4k so probably not that much better than a blue ray

Meh its heavily compressed 4k, more like blu-ray quality that you need a 4k tv for. Waste of time.

I was speaking to a Sony rep in Currys a couple of weeks ago, to get full 4K you need a minimum of 36mbps on fibre. There are compression codec’s but this still need around 20mbps, if BT were to make fibre to the home more widely available I think they could steel a march on the competition but they seem to be missing the opportunity. You also need to factor in the amount of bandwidth these movies would consume. I think the ISP’s would start to up their prices if lots of their customers started streaming films.
Sony has some 4K disks they are around 500GB and there is a firmware up date to the PS4 that will play them, this seems the only way at present you will be able to get full 4K movies.
As for Sky or Virgin it could be a long while away and free view I would say may be never.
I asked about the source for the demo they were showing, he reckoned it was done from a 3Tb drive below the stand and 4 screens (quarters) of the full picture were interlaced together.
That said the picture quality is stunning.

1. All university education in the future will be distance learning via the internet therefore you would actually be doing your kids a favour by buying a large easy to read display such as this.

2. The fact that it's also a tv is an added bonus.

I have it here in my Nigerian palace.

Pay me £2,699.00 and I'll send it on to you.

Even the standard 1080p Blu-ray content looked remarkable. If this set had been only 3 cms narrower, it would be hanging on my wall right now.

Pathetic - my Oric-1 had 48k and that was 30 years ago...

No you pay for the hdmi lead and get the telly free

commodore 64 ruled ass.

This will be great in about 4 years time when 4k becomes more widely available.

I spent £1-£2k on a telly once. Worst mistake ever. They are not called fast moving consumer goods for nothing.

Luckily Sony's newest UHD sets now support HEVC, so you should be able to play Netflix's 4K content when it gets released over here (House of Cards, Breaking Bad and some other shows initially). Such a shame those early adopters of the A models in 2013 got stung so badly

Personally, I'd love to get an old 2012 Panasonic plasma, like the GT or VT. Does anywhere still stock these?

Just bought a VT 65 plasma,one of the last ones from PANASONIC payed the same price.Skin tones are better than lcd and has natural looking motion like crt,only oled is better.Its better get a good quality plasma and wait till they broadcast full 4k.Then splash out for a 4k tv,which will be cheaper.:-)

if you've got this kind of money for TV I'd wait a year. LCD tvs haven't really improved in the last 3 years.

OLED is going to blow LCD out of the water for picture quality, viewing angles and thin screen. LG are putting out some 4k curved oleds which should be down to their site sort of money in a year.

It's worth buying just for the soundbar.

The 5M HDMI Cable is what's tipping it for me.
