£1400 for a tv. You lot want heads looking at.


Is it that ridiculous for the amount of time most people spend watching TV and that will last 5+ years? Far better experience owning something like this than a cheap set.

All depends on each individual. Their incomes their priorities . Person a might be into their cars might spend loads on wheels and modding it person b might drive a wreck and not care . Someone into cycling might buy a £1000 + bike but average Joe would be happy with £170 halfords special. Sure you spend alot on something where someone else thinks that's alot
Don't forget to buy the £199 HDMI cable to give a better picture.........

Yeah. it is ridiculous if you don't have the money sat waiting to be spent. Don't get in debt for this as I'm sure I'll be buying something similar in tesco for £500 in a few years. Seen a 85 inch 4k in the bull ring shopping centre a few years back. £65,000. Great Scott's!.. Still. No way I'd spend more than £500 on a tv. Just how I rock

A friend of a friend has just gone bankrupt. He earns £200 grand a year. I just can't get my head around that. Earning good money doesn't mean you need to spend it. Mad strange world.

Buying any TV is ridiculous if you don't have the money. If you do though it's sometimes worth spending more than the bare minimum. Someone who only buys Polaroid TVs could say you need your head testing for shelling out £500 on a HiSense.
I was in Currys today and this and the LG were next to each too each other. I have to say the LG blew this away. Gutted as this was a serious contender until then...

Which LG?
It says on the powerdirect site that the RRP is £2,599 on the actual Sony site it says RRP is £1,800 sony.co.uk/ele…5bu
So which RRP would you believe?

Unlikely. If you spent 2000 on a TV four years ago, there is absolutist nothing that will match it for picture quality for 500 today.

Why buy the branded products from your supermarket when you can buy the cheap store brand, it's the same thing, right?

Yeah. Festool kit I guess but worth ever penny. Lucky we have designer outlet near us so get some cracking offers as I do like Gap and M&S stuff. Sometimes you got to pay for what you like though. Someone told me years ago for ever £1 you borrow you have to earn £2.50 to pay it off, which makes everything you buy double in price! Maybe that's a little off topic but good debate around the eating table. Listened to the tight wad tech podcast a few years back. Guy bought a 100inch 720p projector for peanuts off ebay for the man cave with a few thousand hours left on bulbs. That's more my scene. You pays you money and takes you choice I guess,but I worry about debt some get in though to get this stuff that don't really need. Jmo

The XE93 loses the full array back lighting, but can go quite a bit brighter, so if you are looking for something more like OLED is right now this one is more similar, but the XE93 will be more impressive for HDR stuff due to the brightness it can kick out.
£1000 for the 55inch

High earners tend to sink quickest, spending often aligns with income, and when it dries up...
What is shipping costs and the discount doesn’t work on the website, will anyone price match is this a dodgy website.

They've been around for a long time, so not some fly-by-night con artists or anything. As for the quality of their service, you'll have people saying they're fine and people saying they're the devil incarnate, just like every other electronics retailer. They have a rating of 4.6/10 on TrustPilot, but then John Lewis, who everybody recommends buying from, have a rating of 2.1/10 on there. So you decide.

What discount? It is already £1399.99 without a code. The code you see on their site saying 5% off isn't usable on TVs as stated.

You keep banging on about debt and the cost of borrowing but who needs a loan just to buy a 1-2k tv? This is a luxury item and people who don’t have much disposable income should stay away like yourself and stick to Tesco £500 or less TVs. People who need loans for luxury items will never get sympathy from the ones who work hard and save so they can lavish themselves.

Has it not occurred to you that some of us might actually pay cash for something like this, like I did with the 55" version in January?
