Cheapest price at the moment for the best value mid-high end LCD LED TV around at the moment.

A hybrid between last year's awarding winning XE9005 and XE9305 models.

Use code SONY100 to take £100 off at the checkout. Applies to all Sony TVs over £1000.

Time limited offer and I think it's been around since Friday.

For those thinking about a Richer Sounds or John Lewis price match this might not qualify as it's special order from suppliers as opposed to in stock.

Really? What’s better..



XE93, XE94, ZD9, DX902B, The higher end QLEDS

Just off the top of my head
£1500+ for a TV that’s not not QD or OLED? Each to their own i guess.

Only one that is better is Samsung Q8 and that’s only if you prefer gaming. There’s a table if you scroll down far end to bottom. Link

None of the models you mention are on general sale anywhere (all 2017).

As for the higher end QLEDs Q8,Q9 there is a massive price differential even the 65Q7FN is £2499 and they are competing more with the OLED market.

Is q8 better than q9 for gaming?
I find it frustrating that reviewers are really making light of the issue with image retention/burn which is ever so apparent with OLED's!

Plus the fact that over time the screen will lose its luminosity.

I am a movie watcher and avid gamer and it appears that gaming on OLED's could be a major issue as the HUD would burn into the screen, but it's not really emphasised enough.

The journalists say it's not likely to be an issue but looking online at forums is giving quite a different impression.

Great tv. In a recent magazine review, sight and sound, it said the tv did better more vivid HDR than any oled, was brighter and has a stunning image quality. It certainly does. And you can watch with with impunity. No need to worry about having to watch a permanent sky sports image on your panel.
At this price it's a steal. Sure there are better TVs. There are always better TVs no matter how much you spend but you'll have to,spend around 3 grand to get a better 65 inch panel than this. People will jump on the bandwagon about this but they haven't got this tv so they really don't know what they are talking about. Do you?

Gaming on this tv is excellent. I game at native 4K on PC and ar 4K on the ps4 pro. At that resolution there isn't any lag i can detect. Image is truly stunning. I can't recommend this tv highly enough for 4K gaming. I can't comment on low res gaming as I never game at lower than 4K.
Just to add re screen burn. I obviously looked at 65 inch oled before buying this tv. I looked at the screen burn issue with oled and the conditions under which its most likely and as I use my tv for gaming and as a monitor it fits the profile of being at extremely high risk of screen burn. There are static images on my screens for many hours continuously and the chance of screen burn were very high. I don't have money to burn and could not take the risk of throwing away up to three grand.
I want to game and watch my tv without continually worrying about it being ruined due to a design fault
I'm not doubting the quality of oled and it's not unreasonable to ask why manufactures don't offer a burn in warranty guarantee. After all, if the tech is so good and not prone to breaking under certain conditions then I why don't they offer a burn in guarantee like Samsung do?
I would have bought oled if they had offered a burn in guarantee. They don't, they never will because that would be tantamount to admitting to incipient fault in the tech. It can never be fixed as it wasn't fixed with plasma.
So I decided I didn't want to play Russian roulette with any tv. I simply could not afford to have a oled that could be ruined at any time. Given that I don't have money to burn and that they way I use my to puts it has very high risk of burn in I had no choice but to buy led.
Anyone who their uses tv for gaming should really avoid oled. Unless you have money to burn on a technology that is flawed and prone to burn in under certain conditions. I suspect those who say that's nonsense don't game for hours on end and use their tv as a monitor. Therefore they really don't know what they are talking about.
Bottom line is that avoid oled if you are a gamer or use your tv as a PC monitor.

Yeh, it's such a shame and such a massive flaw that the reviewers seem happy to simply ignore.

These TV's have 'game settings' for low input lag but seem to be not able to protect the screen itself. How annoying it must be for a person who has purchased these OLEDs who now have the burn.

It's frustrating as I use my TV in the cinema room for both gaming and movies so I need the best of both worlds from one screen and I know that nothing will match the black levels of OLED TV's and I have hated the back lighting of my current TV's.

Deffo getting a new TV this black Friday, either 55" or 65" so need to make a decision soon, but it's proving more of a compromise.

And as another gripe, why has 3d been removed from TV's?!?! We now have a massive library of movies that may well not be able to be played as they have started removing the feature from new screens, whilst still applying the tech to blu ray players?!?! So annoying!

if you get screen burn, get accident cover and one day the TV could miraculously fall with the screen shattering. You would get a new one without screen burn.
