This one or Samsung 65MU9000? Which is better.
The mu9000 is curved. I prefer flat myself.
Thanks for another TV deal.

Yeah a wallet busting £6 more expensive at PD
I'm sure it will drop even more in price in the early new year
Great price for a great TV, holding out for the X93, maybe
Is this as good as a QLED
Worth the extra and get 6 years guarantee are richer sounds (even better if they could price match) ?
Bought this tv earlier this months and absolutely love it. Picture is amazing! I am however a bit disappointed with the andoid side of things, it all seems a big sluggish to me (not a deal breaker as i mainly use it for gaming and watching movies)

MU9000 is an edge-lit. So no comparison to 900e series WHATSOEVER. Sorry, mate :-)

Yes, indeed. Sony's Android Smart TV system is an absolute joke and feels and looks wa-a-ay absolute and dated. However, I don't really know who is using the built-in TV systems today anyway, since the most users I know watche their tellies throw set top boxes or game consoles. So it does not really matter that much, really

You know the model up Sony X93 isn't FALD it's edge lit, so Sony themselves don't agree with you. Edge lit doesn't nessesarily mean worse.

Yes, but I was referring to 900e specifically, not 930e (which is not FALD by definition, true, but that was not the case during the original conversation)

You said Samsung is edge lit SO it isn't as good as the 9005. I'm just saying Sony's TV one up on the ladder is edge lit, so your point doesn't ring true or Sony certainly don't think so.

Moreover there is no need to follow Sony's dubious (at best) pricing policy, they are in business after all, and their positioning an edge-lit 930e over their flagship FALD line-up entry level model (900e) is to merely con a punter into assuming that the higher price of the former would justify the cost of such a step-up, whereas the true step-up from a 900e could only be a 940e with 5 times the amount of LD zones over 900e (at twice the price at a bear minimum). Having said that, a 930e is a terrific TV set in its own right that does perform like a FALD, but once you know it is NOT the one, you'd start questioning Sony why one would have to pay THAT MUCH for a technology associated with the mid-range.
Okay, coming to the party very late, but if I’ve got abt £1,500 to spend on a new tv what do I go for (ideally want 60 or 65” flat screen - definitely not curved). Do I go for Sony, Samsung or LG...and what model? Cheers for any guidance.

Very sensible answer, thank you. I typically look on here as there are always people with a view and often a fair bit of knowledge, but I think you’re right in suggesting I look on av forums, cheers.

For a 65" and that kind of money this is your best buy.

Many thanks for the reply. I have since been drooling over this: Sony KD65A1
I know it's a massive step up in price, but it looks fantastic and the reviews are really good...just have to convince the wife that it makes sense (so probably never going to happen )

Any views on this Sony set? £4k seems to be the price atm...anyone see significantly better?

Cheers.

It depends, OLED still has issues with respect to burn in - check this out - rtings.com/tv/…led. If you play games / watch a lot of sports / have kids you may want to avoid OLED as this issue (although its possible to manage if you are careful - I have had a plasma for years and have managed it) is still present.

If you want OLED I would get the LG B7/C7 - much better value for money and still an amazing picture. I might be wrong but I'm pretty sure its an LG panel in the A1.

If you dont want to worry about burn in or image retention etc (or if you want a much brighter set in general) I would defo go with the XE90 or the XE93 (the XE93 better contrast and has Dolby Vision HDR update coming next 2 weeks).

Are you sure about the update? Heard the cpu can't handle dolby vision on xe90 and xe93?

No DV on the XE90 no, however on the XE93 it is supported.

Phone Richer sounds who may beat it by £10 (at least) but offer an extra years warranty (6 in total)

That's if they stock it
Really good TV, got the 49 version for 1100 end of last year so this is a good price. Android TV is utter rubbish though, disable samba TV etc to make it less laggy.

I think I also read that not all four of the 4k hdmi 2.0 ports are the high quality variety - in Sony speak I believe this is HDR. If you are using multiple consoles, sky q ,AV etc worth checking that fully.

I bought it at this price plus £30 Quidco
Just purchased the Panasonic TX-EX50750B from richer sounds which they price matched from Hughes at £799 then beat it by a tenner and gave me a £20 off voucher towards it as had few issues getting a reply from them via email, so I paid £769 for a 'proper' 100Hz nor just the fancy talk they all do now with 2400Hz which this apparently is as well but it's the native Hz I care about!
It's HDR 10 BIT
Awesome processor from their OLED range as this is their top LCD LED spec telly before their OLED. We spent good few months looking at spec, reviews and stuck with Panasonic as never let me down. Yes their cheaper ones now are apparently made in Turkey but the mid to top range are still made in same place and still have my 32" 1080P 100Hz 11 year old model going strong in the bedroom and still a good as new!
Highly recommend this TV and richer sounds price match online prices and offer free 6 year warranty too.

TV is here if anyone interested

I bought the 49" version of this and it's a fantastic TV. I actually like android TV and have installed some great apps on it. The TV is not edge backlit like most TVs which helps with HDR.

I wish Curry's had the £100 off deal for Playstation 4 instead of Xbox, I'd snap that up in a heart beat. The Currys listing for this also says you get one free 4k movie on Google Play and three months free of Google Music.

You forgot to mention it’s a 50in compared to the 65in Sony tv
Is this TV currently the best bang for your buck right now? If you want decent future-proof HDR and generally good quality television/gaming/movies. Hard to decide to buy now, or wait a bit longer to see if the price falls again.
