    Overwhelming!

    •  

      Even more so… Their billing is messed up, from page to page, re inc/exc GST.

      In the end, total payment says it's inclusive of GST, and states the amount… When it actually charges ex. GST price.

      ie: purchase $1100, says includes $100 gst.
      In the end, charges $1000.

      Let's see what happens.

    Z5 gold is $850

      Not sure how normal Z5 is, but don't bother with Z5 Compact. I took that on a holiday and was really pi**ed! The unit is like a heat brick after speaking on Skype for 15mins and battery drains like there's no tommorrow.

      • +3 votes

        I second that with my Z5. I have had the Z2 and my mate has got a Z3. The Z5 series is a disappointment with the heating and extremely bad battery life! I am hoping maybe the new Android update does something to improve this!

        Z5P user here. The battery life is excellent especially after upgraded to Marshmallow. I don't have heat issue either.

          It seems Z5P doesn't have this issue due to the extra heat pipes and thermal paste. Wished I waited for more reviews before buying the Z5 Compact. The Z5P seems to be the one I should of got.

          "The Xperia Z5 Compact is apparently overheating just like other smartphones that pack the Snapdragon 810 without other precautions to prevent it from running too hot. Owners of the latest compact flagship from Sony have started to complain that their phones are getting excessively hot, and this overheating could lead to other issues. New reports out of China claim that the Xperia Z5 Compact gets so hot at times that the screen actually becomes either sluggish or completely unresponsive, unable to register touch input." <- This happened to me several times.

          Another Z5 Premium user here. No complaints. Delighted by Sony as always.

        I've got a Xperia Z4, it's alright but annoying the side panel button assembly is held together by some crap glue which eventually wears out and all your buttons fall off… I can't adjust the sound on my phone now… on both sides it eventually just comes off and takes everything with it. Major design fault.

        I think the S810 CPU destroyed many phones…

      •  

        Yeah I've had a z1/2/3 and the other day, my z3's magnetic charging port came out after taking it out of the Sony magnetic charging dock. That was the last straw, after I get it back from warranty repair, I'm over Sony phones and the phone will be sold

      Some of the items listed in the sale, I googled reviews from B&H, Amazon. I only trust products with 4 or 4.5 stars out of 5 as I find the reviews to be 80% accurate. All the NFC headphones, alarm clock, projector camcorder I was keen on did not past the minimal 4 rating :( The speakers listed from RRP $3.6k down to $1.5k… There is not one SINGLE review of it online… Makes it real hard to decide paying $1.5k for hope!

    impulse bought the shake77.. whoops..

    •  

      haha did the same :D dont think youll be disappointed

    •  

      Did too! Tell me how you go, was to much of a bargain to pass up.

      •  

        I am still contemplating this. Any of you had yours arrive yet? Happy with it?

        • +1 vote

          Don't know about "box damaged" but mines brand spankin new. Not a problem! The sound and bass is out of this world. Couldn't be any happier with the quality and unbelieveable price I paid.

        •  

          @Boddles: Thanks for that. I ended up going to Shake X1D, about half as powerful (and price), but a few cool features I'll probably play with once and forget. Missed delivery, so I'll have to wait until next week :(

    No STRDN850 for $400 :(

    Frankly there's nothing there that stands out as a great deal to me (although I'm simply uninterested in some of those kinds of items).

      Decent price for STRDN1060 at $649.

      •  

        Especially for someone who missed the 850 last time, and ended up giving JB $849 for the 1060,which at the time was a good price :(

      • +2 votes

        Competition at $400 was limited to poorer quality receivers. The sony clearly outclassed all other options.

        At $650 it's a good deal, but the options start to open up. It's enough money to be a riskier purchase. It might even be a good unit (haven't read reviews), but that may not mean that you like how it sounds. In this scenario, spending more to get a unit that you know you will like can be a better idea than risking a lesser unit just because it was a bargain.

        At $400 I could recommend it to a friend who was looking. At $650, I can't.

    People looking for budget home theatre speakers should consider the SS-CS3,5,8 range. Supposed to be reasonable because the design principles from the more expensive speakers have trickled down to the budget range:

    No soundbar :(

    • +4 votes

      Soundbars are the stupidiest piece of electronics out there. They are nothing but a fad to keep sales up. They sound terrible, cant be adjusted to suit a room (like normal speakers), and cost as much as an entry level surround system.

      Do yourself a favour and just bite the bullet and buy an amp and real speakers (I hear Sony is having a sale on at the moment ;). If you cant afford that, just pickup a pair of logitech speakers with a sub-woofer for <$100, they will still sound better then a freakin soundbar I garuntee it!

        Just a thought, but some people might not want to run 5 speakers around a room and prefer to have sleek bar under their tv screen. My opinion is sound is very good for what it is. Of course it isn't as good as 7.1 surround sound but it is much better than tv speakers

          Soundbars aren't 5 channel, they are STEREO. And you don't need a separate amplifier, since there is plenty of good quality small self-powered HiFi speakers.

          You'll get better sound from a small pair of powered speakers. and it can be more discrete because it's not an ugly big box directly in your line of sight. And you can even have bass, by adding a (hidden) subwoofer)!

          Of course it isn't as good as 7.1 surround sound but it is much better than tv speakers

          I'd say that the improvement from a sound bar to a standard set of (small) speakers is about the same level of improvement again.

          @llama:

          Soundbar does not necessarily = "Stereo".

          For instance, I recall looking at a Yamaha soundbar a few years ago with 22 mini speakers to simulate Surround Sound.

          "I'd say that the improvement from a sound bar to a standard set of (small) speakers is about the same level of improvement again."

          And a standard set of small speakers is about 1/4 the price of a soundbar, for better quality sound.

          It's really a no brainer, unless you enjoy parting with your cash, in which case what are you doing here?

          @fieldo85:

          You forgot the wife approval factor. Cables are a big negative, as are speakers themselves. As is knowing how to use things like receivers. I constantly have this battle with my mrs.

          I told her if she has no audio/visual requirements that she should be using a UHF/VHF TV. She didn't know what that was :/ Guess I should be happy she's younger :p

          I recall looking at a Yamaha soundbar a few years ago with 22 mini speakers to simulate Surround Sound

          No matter how many twee little 1W full range drivers they shove in there, it will still sound inferior to a set of normal powered speakers of the same cost.

          Soundbar does not necessarily = "Stereo".

          Who cares? If you have your speakers separated properly, you don't need to "emulate" them being farther apart!

          In any case, the only thing that matters is how good it sounds… not the number of irrelevant and useless features are listed on the product leaflet.

          I learnt today that Yamaha sells sound bars with RRP up to $2000. Amazing.
