This or Samsung NU8000?
Gutted. The tv I’m interested in is £999.97 😩😩😩
I just got an email from John Lewis saying they'll match it: Quote: "Thank you for your price match request for the Sony Bravia KD49XF9005 49". I have looked into your request and will be happy to match the price of £904.00 for the Sony Bravia KD49XF9005 49" (product code 82440224) seen at Hughes."
No power adaptor, it's built-in on this model.
Thankfully, JL refunded me the £100. FYI, the Sonos Beam fits perfectly underneath the TV should you wish to push it back.
Thanks mate! Much appreciated
Darn, I only bought this same model from JL 3 weeks ago. Use it with the Sonos Beam and I’m more than happy with it.
Though the dye's were getting a size boost this year, where's the 100" sets then? I saw my first at least 15 years ago, they should be around and affordable by now.
Might want to stick the price in the description mate :)
Is it £299 & £100 off hmmmmm “ I WISH “
Shop demo model. They run them on different settings. Every oled tv in John Lewis had some element of screen burn when I went in. Some leds also had screen burn. I’m not sure what point is to be made. Leds are less prone but can still burn. Oled more prone but again depends on viewing habits. Enjoy the picture, get a decent guarantee and pay on credit card. All bases covered in my opinion.
Offer no long available ;(
Good to know. Mine went on for 9mths and I couldn't do it anymore and threw my toys out of the pram. Accepted a newer model from them as a replacement but still had similar issues so taking a Sony break. Can't argue with the picture quality of these oled tvs though
Yeah i had the some of them issues where the yv would restart and even turn its self on but alot of those have been iron out
Until you see this
what price do you buy it at? £669? mine says its 2 weeks from delivery and taking the money. so im pretty sure it should go ahead surely?
Doesn’t look like it was a genuine offer but rather a misprice - went to collect mine today and the store wouldn’t honour the price.
Must of been only on offer for a few hour's as it's back up in price. Pity the offers are not on for at least a day :/
It's showing as 949!
I think the XE90 also has direct LED backlighting rather than a row along the edge the tv where the light is reflected through the panel. If I understand it correctly this will allow better lighting control (no light bleeding, deeper blacks etc) and higher peak brightness which can be localised (which really improves HDR content). Again, based on what I’ve read and assuming I understand it correctly.
Quite lucky as Amazon had it at £589 but sold out quickly, Curry’s left it reduced even after Amazon sold out.
Ordered last night, was going to post deal on here but spotted your post first.
Now up to £849
Not sure whether I would go with this though when you can get the 55” XE7073 for £449. Major difference being the android OS. Still voted hot based on what you’re getting vs price it’s available elsewhere.
It’s a 60hz panel with Sony’s motion flow running at 400hz. The XF85 / XF90 models have 120hz panels running motion flow at 1000+hz... I think based on what I read about the XE lineup from 2017. Hung my nose over the 55XE8596 for a while and wish I’d bought it now at £729 with 5 year warranty...
I ordered one yesterday with an employee discount and special promo and came down to £403! At £589 I still think it’s a good deal for a Sony! Also 55 and 43 inches available.
cUURYS are around the same price
Thanks OP. Ordered :D
Thanks OP, I just bought it
cant understand why the deal went so cold. it was a good price as its gone upto 499 now
Amazon only good at price matching
The slim design means it looks great whether it's on or off ! Oh must buy one.
Same price at Currys too.
Not a fan of that stand
That's what put me onto it rather than the other models. I kinda decided that a known good model is a safer bet.
Out of stock
N6800 got really good reviews with AVForums recommending it
Yeah I have it, I really really like the TV I think it looks fantastic. One thing I never did really get clear is what the difference in quality is between the N5500/N5700 and the N6800 is. Richer sounds have the N5500 55" for the same price as the N6800 50". My local store didn't have the N5500, so I just went for the N6800 at John Lewis for £420 inc. 5 year warranty. My advice would be to check out the 55" if you can find it at a local store, and if not, the N6800 looks great from what I know.
I’m looking at this model? Have you got it yet? Was looking at the 55u7a. But for the price of that I could get the n6800 and a 4K blu ray player for the same price.
This guy has nothing decent to say anti Sony and just waste of time
From amazon prime deal it's sold out now
That page says: DISPLAY RESOLUTION (H X V, PIXELS) 1366x768 so it's a 720P screen (technically 768P to keep those pedants happy, if that's even possible) - so it'll downscale a 1080P image... I voted hot, it's a Sony, it'll perform well and it's a budget TV..... I think it's good that you can still get a premium brand at the budget sector. We all seem to forget that electronics are stupidly cheap now because the market is flooded with low value products, I think it's damned good that for 3.5 tanks of petrol you can get a Sony 32" LCD.
From the official Sony page.. VIDEO SIGNAL SUPPORT1080p(30,50,60Hz), 1080/24p, 1080i(50,60Hz), 720p(30,50,60Hz), 720/24p, 576p, 576i, 480p, 480i https://www.sony.co.uk/electronics/televisions/WE610-WE613-WE615-Series/specifications
Maybe do some research...
I was going to buy it from Currys but it’s gone back to normal price now
I dont know why people vote it cold... for me this is the cheapest price....
No idea why this is cold? Other the. Curry’s price matched and you can get cashback.
why is this cold?

How did it not get delivered ?
I have done for the past few days , they’ve automatically refunded me and blamed that I refused delivery . Theres now none in stock and amazon aren’t offering anything but a £10 promo voucher as a ‘gesture of goodwill’. Customer services don’t want to know , don’t read emails properly and also just fob you off with the same response that doesn’t relate to what you are complaining about i have been in touch with trading standards who have told me to escalate it further with Europa . Hubby is not happy
If you notice it running slow just hold down the power button on the tv for few seconds or remote it'll restart the android tv and refresh a lot quicker next time.
Wow that seems pretty bad. I luckily havent had issues mentioned however id complain to amazon for the stress and time wasted of yours for this hassle
There's no guarantee it will
You mean the other retailers price matched John Lewis. Price dates back to Friday remember. Fella in the store said they would never have priced the 65” within £40 of the 55”deliberately.
No it wasn’t. It was same price £2499 on couple of website on Sunday. So I guess they must have price matched
Yeah funnily enough I popped into JL today to see the A1 in action and they admitted the £2499 was a pricing error. Also confirmed that I could swap for the C8 if I wasn’t satisfied. Must say though the A1 looked beautiful, any worries you have kind of dissipate when you it in the flesh.
Price now £2999 on JL online
This is really worrying, it’s a beautiful set however I can’t help but feel the C8 is a better TV and more compatible with current standards
I bought a 32” tile for my lad from Currys, it said Full HD with HDR10, but then 720p. How can it say full hd and hdr10, but only be 720p?? I’d love to know.
I honestly can't see why anyone would buy anything less than full HD at this stage, especially at this price, cold from me
Looking for a tv for the spare bedroom, will not be used for gaming, is this tv any good? I have no experience with Sony TVs as our others are Samsung.... thanks for any advic
Hmmm can anyone tell me where I can get this at the same price but with a 5 year warranty? Hahaha thanks guys sorry didn't think to check JL
Same Price at J Lewis, but with a five year warranty (cheeky)
good to know about freeview guide - will try that. thanks
OK I have mine now... I didn't bother setting up Youview or Samba as these two seem to be worst culprits in slowing it down. If you dont have youview it defaults to the freeview guide which is perfectly fine. Some of the apps like iplayer are not the smoothest in operation but most things work fine, perfectly fine so far.
I use youview as that is the TV Guide system. I disabled a few things as per some youtube vids. I had it ISF calibrated, picture is amazing.... I also really like the OS, just too laggy for a main TV. If you have a Sky/Virgin box then perfect TV
Did you disable some of the stuff sony has running like youview? I found that made a big difference on a ZD9. After that it seemed lagggy only for the first minute or two after switching on, i guess while it checks for updates etc ?
I have last years version. Picture is amazing at times, but the OS is unusable. Don't hope to cut the cord with a Sony TV, but for console or cable/sky box its a good price and awesome picture.
Out of curiosity, would it be worth spending the extra amount to purchase the LG OLED 65C8 over this? Would the advantages of the LG justify the pricing over this? Cheers
I read it as 1191! Idiot! Not as insane as 1st thought!
Just seen them in Costco Sheffield but at full price until,Monday. So close, yet so far
Anyone know if this will be in-store only or online as well?
Also the A1 has the subwoofer attached to the back which although great for sound might make wall mounting a pain, so the AF8 wins on that point. Just need a good price on the 65”
Anybody has a sluggish issue?
Just bit and bought this, can't complain for a 4k tk for 330 quid
lol my bad I totally got a KD49XE8077, not a 70 series. Maybe this is better?
More than 3x 49" for £323. The 55" (used) is also discounted. https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/offer-listing/B0719KDFNJ/ref=dp_olp_used?ie=UTF8&condition=used
You definitely enabled the HDR setting from the ps4 settings? Not sure it is auto-on by default. https://www.trustedreviews.com/reviews/sony-xe70 Reviews say it's just basic HDR but you should definitely see a difference. You do have the 43 though, and possibly a different model.
Now appears to be out of stock
the xe80 has 50/60hz native panel, the xe85 and above have 100hz panel. I looked closely at both when i was in the market for TV recently. The xe85 and above have perfect motion handling as it has 100hz panel, even for 24fps it does 5:4 pulldown with no telesinic (sp) judder. The xe80 is a good set no doubt, but it does not handle motion as well as the xe85 and it is not perfect for 24frame content. If you are a blueray move fanatic then the xe85 is the much better choice.
What I'm implying is that the xe80 and x85 share the same panel, the only difference is that the x85 has the better picture processor, IE: x1 processor that's used also on the the xe90 so your comment about motion issues regarding football is false., I also have a xd 8005 2016 model, and did have a x830 2015 android TV non had motion issues. I also couldn't find any motion problems reported regarding this issue on the net or any tech magazine review.
The XE80 isn't the XE85, so I'm not sure what you're implying?
Black Version Now Reduced to £719 with Voucher - Summer50 Hughes looks to have just reduced the black version of the same set for £10 cheaper.
Ironic, as you are missing the letter n... An apostrophe and an E.
NEW Sony XF series models are already out but beware, most of them use IPS technology, only the XF90 series is VA. Meaning a slight improvement in viewing angles but a much lesser contrast and black level perfomance.
Looks like it’s discontinued. Waiting for new models to come out anyone know when they that would be? I think the old models are part of the World Cup promos to get rid of them and other deals so new models should be around the corner
Try Crampton & Moore or Reliant Direct and haggle to get the warranty included.
Samsung 65mu7000 is not in stock, looks like it's discontinued. New model on the horizon?
I ‘stand’ corrected :-).
A1 - stand with subbuffer, af8 no sub.
Same tv. Different stand.
Is got no subwoofer
How does this compare to the Sony AF8?
