I can't afford this right now so could people please buy all of these so I won't give in…
Beat me on the post. Got one for myself. Great price!
I hope you remembered the Shopback 5% and $10 bonus. That nearly tipped me over the edge. $1658 (after those discounts) is amazing. Would be surprised if it gets as low as that again before next year.
lol i panicked when I saw it and just bought it straight on. I'm kicking myself right now. but cant complain with the $1755
Also bought (with shopback). Reading through old whirlpool comments and it seems Sony will often list stuff as "box damaged" on ebay in order to not undercut other retailers. Many people report no damage at all on the box. Interested to see if that is the case or not when mine arrives
I’ve bought box damaged direct from Sony and the box was actually damaged - dented in the corners and ripped - could’ve been water on the box that caused the damaged but it was dry by the time it was delivered so we weren’t sure.
It was a hifi system and found the manuals missing as with some of the cables, but the system was in good condition with the remote
So in other words a returned item.
Bugger, one of the box damaged 55" sold for $1373.18! Out of stock now. Would have snapped that up.
I managed to pick that one up for that price. I think it was the last one left.
Nice, what a steal!
Used a voucher eBay had for me, paid $1655.75.
Also did the 5% cashback using shopback! :D
Not sure if the cashback works on top of that unique eBay voucher though. Huge plus if it does.
This is cheaper than my corporate discount! Good price for a cracker of a TV of that size. I own the very same one.
Sony really enjoy to damage boxes every year. I guess they like beatboxing. I'm out
I purchased from Sony online before. Worst mistake I’ve made. The online reviews are very true unfortunately. Terrible support. The worst I’ve experienced sadly. I’ve been a Sony user for many years too.
My TV turned up faulty. Been trying to get my refund for 6+months and it’s still unresolved. Had to take them to the ombudsman.
Would recommend avoiding.
I had a similar experience, basically they tried to defraud me and steal the money when the faulty item was returned they closed the ticket, said they would issue the refund, and then stole the money. I had to fight with them for a long time to finally get my money. Absolute bullshit and Im glad you took them to the ombudsman they need to be regulated as they are thieves.
Hi mate. Sorry to hear that. My case is still ongoing 9 months later. I cant believe it. Sony finally refunded my money eventually but now my money is stuck with paypal somewhere. NSW fair trading have told me i now have to raise a complaint with the financial authorities. Its a complete joke. No one cares. What a shambles. I would be arrested if i went into a sony store and took a TV. These guys get nothing. Thankfully my samsung TV has been flawless. Imagine if my family were depending on this money.
Thanks OP. Got one!
Shame - out of stock - would have been a great buy.
Ozbargained and out of stock.
Missed out because I spent too much time thinking about it!
That's the life of ozB.
looks to be out of stock now
I can't afford this right now so could people please buy all of these so I won't give in
I can't afford this right now so could people please buy all of these so I won't give in
Ohhhh very wise
There were 5 left and I said to myself "If there is one left after I have a shower then I will buy it." Luckily/Unfortunately they were sold out by that time.
Thanks to everyone who bought. Bought myself a pair of Sony WF1000XM3B as a consolation. Because I had to do the Shopback deal. I had to.
85" for $3821.18 down from $4995…. + 5% shopback = $3600ish….
Damn my finger is itchy… I've been saving for 2 years for a 75" or above to make a man cave/media room…
Has it ever been lower?
Interested… do u have a link, I can't find it on their site.
Thanks.. dam would of jumped at that! Did u grab one?
@Pythagoras: Not this time! Now I know we can get down to around that $3500-$3600 mark it gives us a reference point.
I will definitely be keeping an eye out on Black Friday.
Still wondering if I should just grab a cheaper 75" and Sonos Arc (I'm already in that ecosystem $$$ 😱)
@UnderwaterHaze: Go big or go home! Looking forward to black Friday sales
Not there , was $4995
Lucky it wasn't the 75" as I would have bought one after spending too much on Prime today
The 75 was going for ~$2800. Trying to justify the $1000 difference between the 75 and 65.
Missed out on both lol.
Mate got it 2965 Harvey Normal delivered recently..
Missed it. That will teach me for putting my phone down.
Damn, this was easily deal of the day
I think they'll keep having "damaged" boxes
:( Out of stock…. how did I miss this.
Hoping to get the 55" for around $1k. I just want a next-gen gaming compatible TV.
Pretty much go to eBay or other stores & have 4 searches:
No q80t? I was excited to see 49 inch q80t but unsure it will make it to Aus
The q80t is naturally more expensive than the 70. If both are at the same price, obviously I'd grab the upgrade.
I pretty much was just listing my minimums, I don't want to spend more than $1000 & those are the minimum that I'm considering it they reach that point. The exception being the OLED which I'm willing to pay more for, but only about $500 more.
Just wait until end of November
anyone know thast the main difference between the X85G and the X9000H series?
Anyone have their TV shipped yet? Had a previous bad experience with Sony where they didn't sent the TV at all, hoping history doesn't repeat itself.
Not yet, hoping for tomorrow…
Mine shipped this morning, delivery estimated for Monday.
Does Sony normally ship with AusPost?
Mine is coming via DHL.
Mine still hasn't shipped yet. Hopefully no issues
Did you get any shipping notification from Sony?
Nope nothing at all. Have you received anything?
@oohaah: I got an invoice from Sony but nothing for postage yet .. hopefully soon
Mine came today. There was a tracking link in the invoice email. DHL called me yesterday to organise delivery. The only 'damage' on the box was a bit of the cardboard was ripped around one of the handles. This could have been done by the delivery guy though as he pulled it to the back of the truck. Haven't set it up yet but very happy with the condition it arrived in and speed of delivery.
Received mine today. I honestly couldnt see any box damage. Works perfect!
For anyone that missed out, JB new sale on this model:
All I have is order confirmed from ebay, bringing back memories of last year when I was shafted hard by the Sony eBay store, took ages to get a refund on a TV they never posted. Fingers crossed.
Yeah it's not looking good. Especially when Interfreak has had theirs shipped already.
yep same boat here, no communication from sony at all.
I'm wondering if they pick and choose who to ship to depending on region. I'm regional QLD. Lot cheaper to ship metro… Just a theory.
I'm metro QLD might be a delay on Qld orders due to border restrictions or something.
Metro melb for me. looks like the Sydney ones are being done first?
I'm in North QLD, and it's due to arrive Monday.
Wow really! And DHL to boot, thought they used Toll, lucky. Yeah more specifically I'm FNQ… I Purchased the 85 inch…
Received invoice and DHL tracking, in transit but no ETA. Hope everyone else gets their order sent. Now it's got to turn up :)
I finally received a shipping update from Sony/DHL - ETA is Monday 19th.
Hope you guys got an update too
Nice, hopefully I hear something soon. I haven't even got an invoice like you did.
my tv showed up today. brand new, no "box damage" at all. a huge step up from my 8 year old Panasonic plasma. looking forward to pairing it with a PS5 in a few weeks time
Nice, are you in Sydney? Think they are being sent from there.
yep - didnt have far to go to reach me!
Mine is in transit now with updates from DHL.
Super excited for the 85". Excellent deal with stacked eBay so total around $3600.
Thanks to OP for the post.
They all went quick.
Got my tracking from DHL via sms due for delivery monday :)
I’ve gotta say - Sony logistics kick ass. Ordered the 9500G one night, dispatched from Sydney the following day, delivered in Melbourne the day after with GPS tracking from DHL. Definitely impressed and satisfied with my purchase.
Received my X90H today.
Shipped on the 14th, received on the 19th in NQLD.
Have played around with it last night and this morning. Fantastic TV for the price!
It actually turned up with no box damage at all, in brand new condition. Sticker on the back says the TV was built last month.
Very nice! Mine should be here Thursday… Happy days
Mine turned up today, definitely brand new, super impressed so far.
There was some restock yesterday, managed to grab one.
Estimated Delivery tomorrow.
did you pay $2065.50?
No got it for $1,755.68, you can see the sale history
Only problem is they lifted the box damaged price to $2065.50, higher than the new ones, $1,995.
