expired Sony X75F 49" 4K Android Smart LED TV (KD49X7500F) $895 (Was $1095) @ JB Hi-Fi / The Good Guys

140

So my 10 year old LG broke the other day, I have been looking for a replacement and this seemed suitable. Although i wasn't too keen on the price of $1095.

Welp today i checked back on it for reasons and found JB and Good guys have dropped the price by $200. The last time this TV was at this price was back in December.

There may be other price reductions. Possibly due to new models coming out soon.

Came to be a decent bargain with my Telstra deal $200 gift card.

Edit: Also likely due to the competition (Samsung) being around the $895 mark already. Personally I was wanting the Sony over Samsung.

    I think I got this tv back in the day as a bedroom TV. It was fantastic, best tv of this size I ever owned for general use. The intergrated Android TV is completely lag free and seamless - million times better than any smart TV software I've seen.

    Tempted to buy this to replace this piece of shit Samsung smart TV, but it's way too small…

      Exactly what i bought it for. My old 42" LG did well over the years as a bedroom tv, until all the HDMI ports stopped working. This will be a decent upgrade. Funnily enough this tv is only a few mm bigger than my 42inch. Dem bezels back in the day.

    Funny Sony is selling the 55” for $995, however the 49” remains at $1095.

    Is their any reason to upgrade a 1080p tv to a 4k if you don't watch anything above 1080p?

    Sony android TV is pretty crap. fairly laggy to start with and it gets worse & worse until you reboot.
    plus there's a fair bit of bloat, which you can disable, until the next update.

      I've been pretty underwhelmed with every 'smart' TV I've used so far.
      Certainly would still rather a simple TV with chrome-cast.

        Yeah absolutely

        That reminds me, Sony's built in Chromecast is flakey & likes to crash, so you need to either restart the TV or stop & restart the app to get it working. And it buffers (even though I use ethernet). Ended up spending $80 on a Chromecast Ultra, which works well (especially after I disabled the builtin chrecast) and I can even turn the tv on/off via G.Home and reliability ask it to play youtube stuff on it.

        I wish Android TV would have proper integration like getting G.Home to change inputs, channel, volume & open apps.

        But I'mm with you, give me a good quality dumb tv & I'll provide the smarts with Chromecast, ATV or a box.

          Android has been no issue for me on Sony TV. Much better than Samsung (Tizen) or LG (WebOS). At least you've get everything that's available on android from the Google play store, where the others are very limited in the apps. No Kodi, Kayo sports, etc for Samsung and LG. Even if some people are experiencing a little bit slower input for Android, rather have that and all apps possible then a little bit faster and very limited app content. Samsung NU8000 I have constantly drops out and crashes from apps, never had it with my Sony. I use chromecast here and there and never had it crash either. Could be the higher end 9 series has better Android OS implemented.

      It's not as good as an nvidia shield but it's been far better than Samsung or LG in my limited experience.

    Same at Bing Lee. I think it's the current standard price for this unit. I saw the 55" of the same series has been under $800 delivered quite a few times on OzB.
