Found 27th Nov
Being in the market for a 65” TV, the Sony XE9005 seems to be a great set and I haven’t seen it cheaper than this, and comes with a free wall bracket too.

Cracking TV I was going to get the 75 inch version of this but decided the size was overkill so got the smaller but high end 65XE93005 instead

Heard this tv is a bit of a beast

Cheaper at Co Op and Power Direct

It was just over £1500 on Friday and lots of places have it at £1600 now so while it's a good TV for the price, I wouldn't say this offer was a deal particularly.

Yes it is. I wish TPS had the 250 cashback on EX900 series instead of XE8--

£1698 at Co-op. Yes Power Direct is £16 cheaper, but you only get 5 year warranty and no wall bracket.

This or the Samsung 65" QLED Q8 for £1800 (and free soundbar?)

For 3.99 more you get FREE 3 months Google play music, 1x 4K Ultra HD Movie & Booster pack for ‘Real Racing 3’

But only 5 years warranty.

The Samsung is an edge lit TV with a poor local dimming system, and therefore poor black levels. The Sony is a full array local dimming model with solid local dimming and good black levels. There are many more things the Sony does better than the Samsung and its currently cheaper which makes it a better buy.

The only reasons to go for the Q8 over the sony are 1. Slightly more colour saturation (with HDR only) 2. Slightly better at handling reflections. 3. A little brighter peak highlights with HDR (but almost negligible.

In every other area, including the Sony's ability to maintain peak highlights the Sony is better. The Samsung is not a consideration in my view even at the same price, let alone £200 more.

Cool. I haven't decided yet but this is in my list! I think it's the best quality for money at the moment.

My Sister had a 36" CRT Sony tv and it was a really good picture, none of that hdmi rubbish.

It took me at one end and my Sister and her Daughter at the other to lift it onto a stand.

Heavy is not the word, I recken it has got to be the heaviest thing I've ever lifted. Never try it on your own.

It was bit easier with help. I never saw the box it came in.

Slightly over 100KG.


I didn't see her for a while.
Anyhow her and her boyfriend split up. Can't believe what I saw when I went around next.

There was an old supermarket 32 "lcd" in it's place. The picture was crap and the old Sony tv dumped in the back guarden.

end of.

Mum's got a Samsung 55" 7000 series coming Friday. I can't wait to go around, unbox it and set it up.
The callibration parameters are on avforums for day and night.

A fresh virgin tv. I like the media box, if a new tv standard comes out then the box can be changed adding features that can't be done in firmware.

I'm interested in the voice feature. See what that is like.
youtube, I've never seen it working.

£55 for delivery to London, you might want to contact them directly as I did and negotiate a better price than the one advertised. They also offer 0% interest 12 months buy now pay later with a minimum 10% deposit (subject to status)

John Lewis will price match. I know that makes it slightly more expensive, but I have £450 vouchers to use up, so i'm happy.

How good is this compared to an OLED set? Wary of spending this much again on a set when theyre 50 % less a year later...?

I bought this TV from Richersounds for £1600 last week and they have extended the price promise to run to 5th Dec (i.e. if i find it cheaper in stock elsewhere between now and then and let them know they will refund the difference - already called Sunday and they matched the PowerDirect price of 1550, so refund incoming) I got a wall bracket separately from Amazon for about 35.

Out of the box picture settings need a fair bit of tweeking (its really bright, and was too much colour saturation for my liking) - but shaping up to be a fantastic set.

4K content through Sky was mixed bag but I expect thats more down to sky than the TV itself. Planning to test with Amazon 4k and possibly netflix later this week/this weekend.

They are selling this in store in John Lewis for £1449

Yes it is right! I checked in store

I will go and have a look tomorrow. It's still £1699 on their website and they offered me a price match at £1595.

How about SD sources, any good on this one or the Panasonic 65DX902b?
