    Great price for the x930e!

  •  

    Is the $1799 inclusive of the further $150 reduction? The wording in the header makes it sound like it'll be $1649

    Good one EC!

    Another $25 off if you have the Amex Multibrand offer when spending $75. I presume with Sony you can only pay with 1 Amex? Be nice if you could pay in multiples of $75 :)

    Is the x9300e considered a better TV over the x9000e?

    Mate, you are always on the ball with your deals!

    It's showing me $1799

    Can anybody confirm if the 49" W660E has Android and the Google Play store app?

  •  

    Just wondering if anyone has a voucher they aren't using?

    If so, I'll make a purchase πŸ™‚

    Great post πŸ™ŒπŸ½

    Originally wanted a 65 inch TV .. but this price is pretty good right?

  •  

    Wait for boxing day. You'll get is cheaper IMO. You'll probably save another $300 off

      Good idea man thanks

      You also might be dissapointed

      I don't see a significant price drop from this especially it's only around 6 weeks till Boxing Day

        I purchased an LG 55UH770T in Mid December 2016 from HN for $1640.
        Boxing Day = $1495. 13 days later.
        I kicked up a stink to the Franchisee and he credited me $145

        The catch is that you have to get in quick.
        It depends if you need this TV now.

        Edit: I will still wait for the LG OLED C7 55" to drop. I reckon it will reach close to $2200 soon. For a few extra hundred bucks, it will absolutely annihilate the Sony.

          Think you will be a little disappointed if you think the OLED will annihilate the Sony!

          @Monstalova:

          Really? Do you have both TVs to compare? What's the refresh rate of the Sony?

        • +1 vote

          @vinni9284:
          I've had the C7 OLED and returned it now have the X900e. Which is literally day and night difference between the picture brightness. With the X930e it has around 1500 nits brightness about 500 more than the x900e. Motion and judder was poor on the OLED, plus I had permanent burn in from games. OLED picture was sharper but everything else was poor compared to the Sony. HDR was like a black screen on the OLED, with the automatic backlight control it dims everything and you lose so much detail. Sony has trounced the competitors. Upscaling is the best because of their X1 processor chip. The TV is 120hz. It's actually worse for OLED to be quicker as that's what is causing the inferior motion and judder. Look it up…. Anymore help you wanted Vinnie??

        •  

          @Monstalova:

          Maybe you got a dud OLED.

          Not sure if you referring to X930e or X9300e? I would say that it is the same US/AU

          It doesn't reflect the comprehensive reviews here.

          http://www.rtings.com/tv/reviews/best/by-usage/hdr-gaming
          Furthermore, there are many other users that I have seen their posts reflecting that the OLED has a lesser input lag

          By the way, the X9300E has a Native 100Hz refresh rate and not your claimed 120Hz
          http://www.sony.com.au/electronics/televisions/X9300E-X9400E...

          I also not sure if the Sony has HDR10 (Native and not 8 + 2 dithering) as I cannot see this on the specs?
          Does it have Dolby Vision?

          Btw, I don't need further help Monster-Lover but thanks for your offer :-)

        •  

          @vinni9284:
          The x900e is the first model in Sony 9 series which is full array backlit local dimming. The x930e is edgelit with local dimming. They are very similar except for brightness specs. Read the Rtings specs for the TV's. They are native 120Hz but because Japan (where it's built) and USA use NTSC (60Hz). Our TV's which run on PAL (50hz) are interpolated to run at so that means 100Hz. It would be exactly the same thing they do with OLEDs that are sold in Australia. That's why you have different framerates in movies and tv - NTSC 29 vs PAL 24. Of course the Sony has a 10 bit panel also will have Dolby Vision in a firmware update (not sure if it's out already). Actually has better gradation than OLED and that's why you see some colour banding occasionally on them. Only time you see dithering is with monitors and lower end TV's. So you want me to explain every part of the Sony range and frequency ranges in different countries too or do you want to do some research of your own? I've had the OLED and it doesn't compare to the Sony 9 series range at all! if you think burn in is a rare case (I got a dud) look on the forums and the thousands of people complaining. Those are just members, imagine the others with this issue then! It's a dark picture on the OLED and they have huge issues with white/greys. It turns any lighter colours to a blue tint. It's to do with RGB pixels. OLEDs still have huge problems and are not worth the money. They need years to fix them to be ready

          @Monstalova:

          I guess we can perpetuate this conversation to no avail.

          There are always going to be pro and cons to every TV model.

          The specifications on manufacturers' site are limited, so I guess you have to further research.

          Then HDR12, HDMI 2.1 will be released and with newer standards .. codecs …etc …and then throw our TV's away or resell.

          They are both high end TV's so I guess it is subjective on what you like.

          Do you run PC games, console games or both?

        •  

          @vinni9284:
          I run PC and PS4 Pro.
          OLED gave me a tonne of image retention at the start and turned into permanent burn in after a few weeks. I think hdmi 2.1 is years away from being implemented on commercial TV's. PC's have it well before and no sign of that yet. I still think Dolby Vision and HDR aren't quite ready yet as it further dims the picture so you get that extra pop on the colour difference. That's why you need high brightness nits for a TV with it. It's formatted for 4000 nits brightness (TV's can't do half that yet plus x930e is the highest) and a 12 bit panel. So until we get thise specs no one is gona see the potential of these features.

        •  

          @Monstalova:

          Ok. In relation to PC gaming, I assume you play 4K games and have at least a GTX1080?
          Have you tried to run the games with full settings; AA/AF, shadows etc and how was the gameplay?
          Did it ghost by any chance?

        •  

          Sony Z9D has the highest brightness (~1840 nits) in the market.

        •  

          @vinni9284:
          Yeah got the 1080Ti HoF
          No ghosting, the motion is perfect! The only slight issue I had was very small blooming but only on a complete black screen with a small icon. Even then it was hardly anything. This TV has 30ms lag.
          So -. 03 seconds, if it was around 10ms it really would be the perfect monitor/tv. I haven't noticed any lag in the games I play (sports, driving,fighting, etc. Seems to be more with desktop scenarios like changing windows and folders.

        •  

          @Monstalova:

          Thanks for that.

          Sounds like an awesome TV.

          I wouldn't mind the same x930 however the smaller 49" as I would sit closer to it.
          I think the smaller sizes were earlier releases and now the 55" are now more widely available. Plus the cost of the smaller is more than the 55" ~ $1800+

          Considering that you have had both the OLED and the Sony, obviously done your research, I'd rather take your word for it than online reviews. :-)

          Tbh, I was originally going by online specs and that is not the same as owning it.

          Thanks for your time.

          Cheers

          @vinni9284:
          For some reason Sony Australia only sells the 49 inch X9000E and not given retail stores anything. X9300e only comes in 55 Inch or higher. Even though the X9300e is brighter it's edgelit and might have more blooming and light bleed. I'd only recommend the X9000E as it's full backlit. Means better blacks, no light bleed and better consistency of picture. OLEDs are great at blacks and sharpness plus really excel at 4k content (as long as it's not a dark scene, as you lose details in the black which would be seen on high brightness LED). Everything else picture wise Sony comes up trumps. Upscaling, motion, BT2020 colour gammat, brightness. It's the best all round TV out there. I still think OLED will take over eventually but not until they sort out their issues. I guess you would rather have something at its peak then something in its infancy. Depends if you really want 12 bit colour panels and higher brightness nits which will be available probably in 2019/2020. Don't go all out now and wait til then so just spend say $1000 or so this time…

        •  

          @Monstalova:

          No problem.

          Thanks for your feedback.
          I'll definitely wait and see what happens.

          Cheers

        •  

          @Monstalova:

          What are you on about? The black levels are almost identical.
          Just because the X9000E is FALD doesn't make it superior.
          It doesn't have enough zones for it to be near useful.
          The Z9D on the other hand is the meaning of true FALD.

        •  

          @Benyamin:
          Well no one is gona buy the Z9D here. Only very limited stores sell it as special order for some ridiculous price like $6000 or something. No doubt that TV is probably the best on the market though. Incase you didn't realise the x930e is edgelit so that means more blooming and light bleed. I know Sony have improved their tech for it, but being edgelit means there's more light coming from around the frame. That means light bleed around the edge of the screen and dimmer areas in the middle. This causes the blacks to be inconsistent and not uniform throughout the screen. Also with such high brightness it's almost impossible to get the inky blacks.
          You don't know how many zones the x900e has! Sony never releases their specs. So I'm curious how you know it's so low?? You must have engineered this TV. Zones aren't the be all and end all anyway… It's the algorithm thats just as important. Maybe do some research and have basic knowledge of how TV's work before picking arguments.

        •  

          @Monstalova:
          Not sure if serious? It's called reviews, HDTVTest, RTINGS, AVForums, FlatpanelsHD, need I go on? Do some research? You're the one telling people the blacks are better on the X9000E when RTINGS gave the X9300E a higher score for black uniformity. The X9000E is good but the X9300E is better :)

        •  

          @Benyamin:
          Do you realise that Rtings are morons and actually turn off local dimming for their testing?!? Seriously you need to look for yourself and use some common sense. No point debating with sheep

        •  

          @Monstalova:

          The X9300E does a better job of local dimming when the X9000E is supposed to be "FALD" so what's your point?
          Morons? So you're a professional calibrator? No point debating consistent reviews :)

        boxing day sales have become usless now,.. stay away,

        sellers know your saving up to buy then, so they dont pass on massive savings, instead people will just buy it coz thats when they held out too…..

        its a prisoners dilema game puzzle, the nash equilibrium is to buy sooner for cheaper.

        •  

          Agree with this post, you buy when you can afford.
          Boxing day sales aren't what they used to be.

    •  

      get it with price protection and claim the difference 2 year from now :)

      •  

        Yeah but is that from certain Credit Card providers?
        Isn't there an annual fee like $80 PA?
        I guess if depends if you buy expensive electrical goods … etc all the time may be worth it.
        I have a CC and pay no fee PA

        •  

          there is no fee :) 28 degree or coles master card both have it, i think :)

          edit: there is a fee option and fee one ofc :)

        •  

          @h4zey:

          Ok.. have you ever tried to claim?
          I heard Coles are very dodgy (especially with Insurance products)

        •  

          @vinni9284: I've had very good experience with Coles so far. I claimed two price drops against my mobile phone purchase (OnePlus 3T) and they got approved in a day.

      •  

        The problem is. To claim price protection, it has to be the exact same model and in the same store it was purchased from. TV models keep changing every so often and stores like Sony may not keep older models for long

          There is a reason why Sony are reducing prices with these TV's. There is another thread of a cheap X7000E …
          Hence as per your statement … a new model will be released soon.

        • +1 vote

          @vinni9284: Sony release their models in June/July yearly in Australia, and these ones only came out late July this year, which doesn't even make them 6 months old.

    Hey, I was pretty sold on getting an LG C7 55" OLED and was going to wait for a dramatic price drop but considering I have no TV, and have just moved from London this price looks pretty good for the KD55X9300E. I really like the rich display on the C7 but is there really much between them? Also does anyone think there will be a price drop on the C7 to around $2200 any time soon?

    Damn, no decent price on the KD65X9300E :(
    Hoping to catch it on or below $2717 after I missed it the first time.

    Anything for 75” tv…. been waiting for a while.

    Ruh-roh I ordered KD55X9300E yesterday @ $1950!

  •  

    I'm still waiting on my KD75X9400E to be delivered, $5600 was a steal

  •  

    KDL49W660E seems perfect to replace my 13 YO rear pro for an entry level tv.. what do you guys think

  •  

    KD55X9300E is sold out, but hopefully those people used cashrewards to get a further $79.97 cash back.

  •  

    Damn, the 55" uses 209W and the 49" uses 85W. 12hrs a day at 24c/KW would mean a $130 difference per year in electricity pricing.

    Seems strange they can't get it under 100W.

    •  

      I know this thread is done and dusted, but just letting you know, the 55" model is the top end 4K Sony LCD, and the 49" is their bottom end 1080p model.

      The 9300E has to drive 8294400 pixels (8.3 megapixels) and has 6 more inches of screen to backlight.

      The W66E only has to drive 2073600 pixels (2.07 megapixels).

      Mix that with the (much) more powerful CPU in the 9300E, and it gets brighter nit-wise, and I think just over double the power consumption is fair…
