      Go back and ask to price match, or return it back and get the one at costco. Why are you false draming for no reason? You have choices, work B! ^_^

          @tomleonhart:

          Says this about what their competitors are.

          "*Competitors must be nominated Australian based businesses and exclude eBay."

          So in other words they will only price match against businesses operating in Australia who they have self nominated to compete against. As far as i know Costco Australia is a business operating in Australia selling stock from Australian distributors the same as TGG is definitely not a grey import. I guess Costco Australia is too good for TGG to compete against.

          Up the top of this web page in a banner it's just got ["If you find a lower advertised price within 30 days of your purchase, The Good Guys will happily Payback 120% of the difference."
          ] which i think is a bit of false advertising if they will only price match against certain sellers even if there is a lower price at say Costo Australia.

          http://www.thegoodguys.com.au/30-day-price-guarantee

          So much for The Good Guys price match so called guarantee. There really is no guarantee since it's rigged only to apply to Australian sellers who TGG deem to be their competitor therefore it's not a complete guarantee.

          @hollykryten:

          Costco charge a membership and as such companies like TGG and JB wont price match as the price is "not available to the wider community"

          I have gotten JB to price match one time and i was lucky but they added $60 (membership fee) to the price they matched, so i saved $10 in the end, but other times they simply refuse.

          My cousin works at JB and told me that their internal policy is that they DO NOT match Costco (for reason above) and i assume the same would apply at TGG

          @jimbobaus:

          It is true, as soon as the staff hear Costco, they refuse to price match. They manager in Chatswood told me company policy.

          @GerrardLFC: Its the same story with orificeworks, recently they told me its because costco buy in bulk and dont offer local warranty!!!??!!

          Their price match "policy" should be called out as false and misleading advertising.

        Check what your credit card features are.
        On mine they have purchase price protection.

    Don't forget Costco still have their awesome warranty, that's enough reason to buy it there. As long as you're a continual member & if the TV ever dies, take it back for a full refund!

    How's the input lag on this? Cant find much about it

    • +1 vote

      Input lag was tested as 13.2ms for the KDL-32W700C: http://www.benchmark.pl/testy_i_recenzje/sony-kdl-32w705c-te...

      BTW 705C is just the European model name for 700C, same TV. This 48" version should have the same/similar input lag as that 32". BTW the 48W700C is just a rebadged 48W700B, so you can look up results for that TV. The W700C is amongst the very best input lag TV's of all 2016/15 TV's.

      I just set up my 48W700C from this deal, and instantly I can tell that the input lag is rock bottom, it is far better than my 2015 Series 7 Samsung, I quite literally was playing better than usual against others in smash bros and pro evo soccer. Super happy with this purchase, buy it up mate you won't regret it!
