[Box Damaged] Sony 55" A8G OLED 4K Android TV with Acoustic Surface Audio $2199 Delivered @ Sony eBay


$2200 for a 2019 model 55inch OLED is an absolute steal. Free delivery too.

Word of warning though, for some odd reason, this TV does not have HDMI 2.1 so is a poor choice for those planning an upgrade for the PS5.

    Is this one MADE IN JAPAN?

    • My kd65a1 from 2017 was made in China if it's any help

  • why this over a cheaper c9?

    • +1

      Sound and sports upscaling. I still would choose c9 when it is discount.

    Be warned though, your mileage may vary!
    I got one of the refurbished models (65" X85G) from SonyAustralia's EBay store … and the TV died in 3 days!!
    Took them over a week to arrange and get delivery done and after 3 days of light usage and the screen went blank.

    Thankfully, SonyAustralia does provide a 12 month warranty on their refurbished TVs, but their warranty service is contracted out to a third-party repair company.
    I'm now waiting for them to send their to send a technician over to get my set repaired. So it's been a week and a half this thing is sitting dead in front of me.
    Take heed that if you end up with a lemon from this Refurbished Russian Roulette, you would be spending significant time sorting out repair services and all.

      I had the same thing happen with a refurbished 55" X85G. Failed in 4 days, horizontal flickering lines then no picture. Just shipped it back yesterday for a refund. It was nice while it worked.

      This is boxed damaged though not refurbished. The refurbished units are usually clearly marked as '(seconds)' aren't they?

      • +1

        Yes, that is correct. Just for information, my refurb TV came in a different model packaging and with different instruction manual. There was some dust on the back indicating it was sitting out for a bit. I have ordered box damaged stuff from Sony in the past, and it seemed like new (no apparent damage to the box at all).

    If the A9G were available at this price it would be a great deal. But with the equivalent size C9 and GZ1000 available cheaper, I don't think $2200 for an A8G represents value over the LG/ Panasonic alternatives.

  • My mate has got 65” A8F. Absolutely amazing. Once you get used to OLED, it is very hard to watch ANYTHING in ultraHD ordinary TV.

    • +5

      Once you see true black it is hard to go back?

  • +3

    Even discounted, Sony oleds are far too expensive. Not worth it over LG's.

  • FWIW, my 55" A8F (2018 model?) from the PlayStation deal which cost $1464 after all discounts/cashback is the best TV I've ever owned and has never had an issue. Obviously not a deal that's available any more, but if you can stretch for a brand name OLED, it's very much worth it.

  • Just an FYI for anyone considering this model.

    The A8G is not slated to get the Android Pie update despite being a current TV model.

    I have the A9F and Sony still hasn't updated ours to Android Pie despite the Dec 2019 release notice so they are very slow in that regard.

    I was sick of being negged for making clear, correct and helpful comments.

    I requested my helpful comments be removed by a mod.

    Ozbargainers: think next time you "neg and run". You're killing the helpful culture here. If you don't post a reply to a comment explaining why you disagree, don't neg that comment.

    My comments might have saved someone spending $2200 on a tv that doesn't suit their situation. It's the neggers fault the comments aren't here any more.
