    Cheers, bought
    Is this the lowest it has been?

  •  

    Does this tick all the boxes for Xbox Series X gaming?

    •  

      Nope

      •  

        How come? I have an older model and have really enjoyed it, and was looking forward to upgrading in preparation for the Series X ever being generally available.

          It currently does not have the VRR and ALLM firmware yet but Sony says it's still planned for release:

          https://www.flatpanelshd.com/news.php?subaction=showfull&id=...

          "HDMI 2.1 VRR will let users enjoy variable refresh rates for smoother gameplay together with a compatible game console like Xbox Series X or a PC. ALLM will let the TV auto-switch into Game mode with compatible sources."

      •  

        How about the Sony KD55X9500H?

        •  

          Nope. It's only the LG CX/BX and Nano90. Sammy Q80/70/95T. Sony its only the x9000h but without VRR. Even the new 2021 lineup from Sony won't support VRR on release. For Hisense no current model does. Their 2021 line will come with HDMI 2.1 but no information of what exactly

    •  

      What specifics would you need to look for to be good with a Series X (and PS5).

  •  

    Will there be a 50" version this year?

    Applianceonline has it for $1691 ($1391 with afterpay code) and free shipping. There's only one left though so be quick.

      Get a Hisense 65Q8. Awesome spec, I bought one today from here, it includes free shipping https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Hisense-65-Series-Q8-ULED-4K-TV-...

      •  

        I bought mine a few weeks ago and loving it. What did you end up paying all up today? Edit seen below that's an amazing price!

        •  

          Awesome glad to hear! I was about to buy the 55 last week but held off and glad I did as I decided to up to th 65 so I can keep it for longer when I move into a larger space. Also price was actually $1349, but I think that's an amazing deal..maybe the cheapest it's ever been even.

      •  

        No hdmi 2.1 makes it a bit of a swerve for gamers tho. Main reason the X9000h so popular

    Damn, bought a 55” q8 a few weeks ago. Buyers remorse

    • +6 votes

      I've done a lot of research, I'm pretty sure the Q8 is actually better…if it's not, the Q8 is a very good model. Quantum dot, full array back lit, really the main downside is the operating system, but that's easily solved. I also just bought a 65Q8 today for $1300 delivered lol

        i think it's just hmdi 2.1

        •  

          Ah yes of course, forgot about that major part haha. Correct me if I'm wrong but mainly a benefit for gamers with new consoles? I stick to PC so didn't see the need for it

      Tell me all your troubles

        I want HDMI 2.1 so I can game over 4k/60hz with a GPU that I can't afford and even if I could afford it it's impossible to buy one unless I pay scalpers 2x the retail price.

        Actually, that makes me feel better, thanks!

    Just be aware none of the HDMI 2.1 features work correctly with this TV and the firmware is very buggy.
    It will hopefully be fixed in a firmware update but i wouldn't count on it. The new version "x9000j" is just around the corner.

    To be clear it does not display true 4k @120hz.
    There are lots of Audio issues with eARC.
    Vrr and allm have yet to be implemented.

    Nice picture but do some research if these features matter to you.

    •  

      Even the new version won't have support on launch 😂

      •  

        Sony said last week that the VRR update might not come out until the end of this year for all models

  • +1 vote

    Nice TV but as above annoying audio issues with eARC that they still haven't fixed! (Sound cuts out randomly)

    •  

      yeah, it's driving me crazy. Some people are saying the new 466 firmware fixed it, but it made it worse for me.

  •  

    I'm after a 65", there are too many deals, my head hurts. What should I get ozbargain experts?

    • +1 vote

      So many questions haha
      Do you care about gaming?
      Do you want the best picture quality, or are you looking for best bang for buck?
      Do you watch in a bright or dark room?

      •  

        Gaming: when PS5 is finally on sale lol.
        Picture quality: as far as i know, LG CX seems to be among the best, but it's more than what I would like to spend on a TV. So really, I'm looking for best bang for buck here.
        Room condition: fairly bright living room during the day.

          Gaming;
          The new tech that the consoles support is HDMI 2.1. HDMI 2.1 means a few things, it's capable of supporting speeds of up to 48gbps, which in turn allows it to support 4K resolution up to 120Hz. Some other things include Variable Refresh Rate (VRR), Auto Low Latency Mode (ALLM), and enhanced Audio Return Channel (eARC).

          The problem with HDMI 2.1 is that manufacturers are able to claim they have HDMI 2.1 if they have any 1 of the above features.
          That is the case with the Sony X9000H. It can currently support 4K/120 but however does not support VRR or ALLM yet. Sony have said that it will come in a firmware update, however you're purchasing on a promise that may or may not be fulfilled.
          The only other HDMI 2.1 TV of the 2020 lineup is the LG CX, which as you probably know is an expensive OLED, albeit the best TV of 2020.

          Picture quality;
          OLED is considered the best in picture quality as the technology allows for each individual LED to be turned off. It allows for deeper blacks and generally more vibrant colours.
          The negatives are that it's a) very expensive and b) prone to temporary image retention and eventually burn in (although you would have to watch thousands of hours to get burn in these days)
          c) OLED TV's can't get as bright as traditional LED TV's and as such aren't as good for bright rooms.

          So the alternative is to get an LED TV, these days quantum dot technology or QLED has come a long way and is quite impressive. (QLED applies a filter over the top of the LED for more vibrant colours) (some terminology changes between the manufacturers such as Hisense ULED is the same as QLED).

          What you want to look for however is a TV with Full Array Local Dimming (FALD) which means more zones can be turned off (more true blacks) compared to the more traditional Edge lit displays generally found in your cheaper/budget TVs.

          Room condition;
          As mentioned above OLED does not function as well in bright rooms.

          TV choices - my recommendations
          As for now all the research I've done it seems the best TVs without breaking the bank seem to be the:
          Hisense Q8
          Pros: amazing picture quality with FALD and QLED, built in soundbar at 65"
          Cons: Hisense VIDAA UI, some complaints about motion blurring

          Sony X9000H
          Pros: HDMI 2.1 (no VRR yet), FALD, Android TV,
          Cons: Bit more expensive, not all HDMI 2.1 capabilities

          There are other TVs that are great also, but are usually more expensive such as the Samsung Q80T, LG CX/BX etc

          The alternative option is to wait and see what the 2021 lineup has for us, there will be a bigger emphasis on HDMI 2.1 for sure, but I imagine prices will be higher than what you can get right now.

          There is a great community on r/4kTV if you were interested or had any other questions

            @Verse: An additional con of the x9000H.. eArc audio issues.

          •  

            @Verse: Wow, really wasn't expecting such a detailed recommendation, much appreciated! You really know your TV.

            The other con I found on Hisense 65Q8 is that it doesn't support Disney+… at least not yet. Sort of a deal breaker, as I would like to binge on Marvel from the start to Endgame.

            •  

              @OCD: Haha thanks, I'm honestly not an expert, I've just been in the market for a new TV lately and done a bit of research haha.

              I also forgot to mention anything re HDR10+ or Dolby Vision.. It's never ending with TV's! Haha

              Yep you're right, as the Hisense Q8 has its own UI it is limited to certain apps that they partner with. They've recently partnered with Foxtel to bring Kayo to their TV's but they're yet to bring Binge which is also owned by Foxtel… Crazy.
              And Disney+ as well as you mentioned is also missing.

              That's another pro for the Sony X9000H which has Android TV, meaning you can download from the largest app library on a TV. It has all the aforementioned apps :)

              •  

                @Verse: And you're an early riser too! Thank you so much again for taking the time to share your TV expertise. So what did you ended up getting?

                I really like the value proposition offered by 65Q8, but a smart tv not running android almost feels like getting a smartphone running on symbian, or am being too critical? lol

                I'm leaning towards X9000H, but I can't seem to find the 65" to take advantage of this afterpay sale. :(

                  @OCD: Don't buy a TV for its interface and OS. They could stop supporting it at any time and your left with old security flawed mess. You could always add a Google TV CC or a Nvidia Sheild that will have updates and you could update to faster chipsets

  •  

    Joined AfterPay so I could buy this - but they only gave me a $600 credit limit.

    •  

      Oh darn I'm sorry to hear that.
      I've been with Afterpay for a while now so my limit is $2K, I kind of figured it was the same for everybody

    •  

      I rang good guys sales 1300 942 765 and told them about ebay 20% promotion and they done it for $1425. $30 more expansive Better than making a afterpay account

  •  

    Keep getting refund saying they are unable to fulfil my order, neither pickup or delivery. Now, I have $700 pending payment that I cannot use, and no luck for a new TV. Anyone having similar experience?
