Coscto Epping is selling 75" X85G TV at $2549.99 ($850 off from their RRP). This TV is not available on Costco website.
Still plenty of stocks in-store.
More than 5km from me 😷
is your tv not your intimate partner? I know mine is
Don't know if it works when going out looking for an intimate partner
Surely if you know which one you intend to pay for
Buying a TV is absolutely essential in VIC? Epping one of the hot spots…
He can go buy a cucumber for food essentials while he's there.
KD85X8500G is the 85inch model. It should be KD75X8500G.
Is KD85X8500G the wrong code in title?
2019 model, was as low as $1996 last year
That's right. This post isn't a good deal afterall. $500 + more than last year's deal.
Hop in your time machine.
New models are awfully priced.
Where else can we buy at a better price.
Doesn't mean a good deal to buy an overpriced TV atleast by ozbargain standards it's not. Even if the new TV s are highly priced.
Ozbargain membership points to wait it out for better deal and hold onto cash than to buy it $500 over the best deal last year.
@OneIdiot: Screw your 'points', some people just want the best price now. Right now, this seems to be the best price for this TV.
I'd love to bring in some old 1c and 2c coins to see if they'd accept the ".99"
Or pay by card?
Yep, a true ozbargainer always asks to pay 0.97 by card and 0.02 by cash.
It's our 2 cents worth.
who even use cash these days?
Curious, are they better than the new release?
That's a lower end version. Only 50hz rather than 200hz on the older model.
200hz is proven bs
bs in what way? Because there is a distinct difference on my gaming PC when I change between the 60-100-200mhz settings on my PC and display…
@releasethekr4cken: 60-100-200mhz That refresh rate is faster than the fastest gaming monitors! :-)
@vrsac: Sorry X34P
Max is 120Mhz.
@releasethekr4cken: Because it's marketing horsesheet. Read-up, one link a few comments lower.
Literally bought an X85G last week (though went with the 85"). I believe the 8000H is the newer model though its a lower end model. The X85G has 200hz Motionflow which the 8000H doesn't. At the same price I would pick the X85G.
Beware of fake refresh rate!!
Same price at Lidcomb NSW
Just curious - if I don't need any smart functionalities and just want nice picture quality and a large screen without the bells and whistles, am I better off getting one of those cheaper Kogan/TCL ones? I've done a bit of research but can't really tell what $3k 65" TVs have over $700 ones… Also it's kinda hard to find "dumb" TVs nowadays!
It's been a while since I looked, but Hisense were pretty good bang for the buck when I was shopping around. (I ended up with a Sony)
There is a big difference in picture quality between a Kogan/TCL and a Sony/Hisense/etc. But the name brands all offer various tiers of picture quality too, so check reviews before buying.Even better if you can view yourself - take in a video clip on a USB stick so you can do a direct comparison.
Thanks! Might look into Sony and Hisense as well.
The name brands aren't more expensive because of the smart TV functionality. Most of the additional cost is attributed to the processor, refresh rate and how many "lights" are behind the display to name a few.
Processor for upscaling: Most of what I watch isn't 4K so this was very important for me.
Refresh rate: For sport.
lights behind display: Can't remember the correct terminology but cheaper TV's are edge lit. Good TV's have a bunch of lights behind the screen so when part of the screen is black, they can turn off only that section and give you a good black. If it's on the edge they can't really do much. that's why OLED are great because there are more "lights".
I was looking for a value pick and opted for a previous year model branded TV on sale.
The Kogan tv will be ok, but if you want nice picture quality it won't hold up.
Thanks for the detailed explanation, that's much easier to understand than the info I found online. Now I'm tempted to double my budget, haha
Definitely don’t go too cheap. Smart TVs are standard these days so you won’t really save any money there. If you want bang for buck, I’ve heard good things about HiSense.
I work with a guy who's into his home theater. Every day he's talking about how something's not quite good enough, so he upgrading this and replacing that. He literally spent tens of thousands on gear and he's never happy.
I decided to avoid that path, bought a $600 TCL TV which does the job and choose not to overthink the problem. I seem to be a lot happier with my choice than he is :)
I bought the 65” version last week from Sony online store.
Ruing every $ I spent. Blurry pictures and ghosting. Even on prerecorded content like you tube.
Wish I could return for refund.
Turn off / down motionflow
Looks like it also has an echo
Hardly an essential item.
Some light reading for you. voting guidelines

I just grabbed the x85g 65" off their website$1649. The 65" x8000g was $1229.
Hopefully its all good!
This was 50 bucks cheaper 2 months ago at Costco. Though I got mine for less than 2100 in a eBay sale.
Great TV, would recommended.
No 65" x9500? :( long shot i know.
Don't buy this TV.
Source: I bought this TV.
Bloom is terrible. 3/10 would not buy again.
I will never buy a Sony TV again. I have the 65" model and hate it. Every day I use it, I wish I hadn't "saved" money by getting the Sony instead of a better brand.
They are living off their CRT reputation. The builtin software is buggy and slow. The off axis picture quality is woeful. I would either go for a hisense if you're after a lower price point TV, or splurge for a Samsung. I have two Samsungs, and love them.
Did you check reviews, first? Ignoring the suitability of size, the 85" model is the only decent one. Best bang for buck in its size range. Anything smaller, there are a ton of better options.
Tooooooo all those going on about 5k rule
I travel to Costco twice a week 50ks
No issues but today I decided to ring the flu hotline today befor I went and was told as I live in stag 3 I’m allowed to enter Melbourne to shop for goods n services same goes to people in melbourn I was told you can travel to your closest cost to shop
