Sony 77" A9G 4K UHD Smart OLED TV $6888 + Delivery @ Videopro

111

Although not as good as last month’s Good Guys deal for $5945.. it’s still amazing value for those that are after the best picture processing, best upscaling of low quality broadcasts, best colour accuracy out of the box and great sound.

Movie and free to air watchers best suited for this 2020 model. Gamers are better going for other brands (or 2021 SONY models) that feature the HDMI 2.1 technology.

          Maybe contact OzBargain to educate you? You’re clearly out of the loop as others are ‘thumbing up’ the post..

            @msjb: Read the comments mate, literally no one thinks this is a bargain for a 2019 TV lol

    Just no. Unless you live in a bunker or something. Its too dim to view in daylight without light blocking curtains.

    This 2019 TV should go for less than 5k.

    Sony’s new OLEDs due for release in June Nation wide according to rumours.

    This could see significant reductions as a result. Would hold off IMHO.

    Not a such good value

    Anyone know how Sony are with retention or burn and honouring out of warranty repairs? Is it a fight to get them to do it?

      Sony have the least percentage for burn in of any brand with OLED. As previously they were the dimmest screens and the most aggressive ABL. Now obviously they're the brightest. Brands can offer a one time replacement for burn in if its within the first year. Out of warranty and wanting to get it repaired because of burn in would be an automatic no.

        Ahaha no. ACL takes care of burn in.
        Last I checked LG make the panels. And they are pretty good with OOW panel burn with their consumer TVs. So you’re just guessing Sony would say no? Or do ya have experience with their support?

        One time replacement? Nah. I’ve had Panasonic replace something 3 times, well after the manufacturer warranty had expired…

          Sony only put the best panels in from LG. That's also why they charge a bit of a premium. This is information from stores saying that LG does do a one off replacement for burn in within the first year. (Not every time but mostly) You can try but very unlikely after the warranty has expired and even more so if its because of burn in. I got burn in within three weeks years ago and it was not easy to get a refund! Took forever and juggling me between the store and manufacturer, threatening ACL etc. Not sure if you've read the information that comes with the TV, but it specifically states the grounds for burn in. Even that letterbox bars can cause it as the line that separates it from the picture can do it, if its constantly watched on the TV. I know JBHifi do give more warranty depending on the cost but that also does not include burn in. You need a separate extended warranty for that. There are some people that have had burn in after a year or two but have had to pay a percentage to fix the screen, while the manufacture compensates a partial amount

            @Monstalova: Wow so even in warranty, 3 weeks after purchase, Sony was a hassle to deal with? Hmmm.

            My V series Panasonic plasma recently went pop and I’m in the market for a new display that features a black level that barely registers on a colorimeter :)

            And having lived with an IR prone display for the past decade I’m confident I know how to handle it. Was just curious if Sony have woken up to our ACL like LG have.

              @bigjezza: It was LG C7 I got burn in with. I was talking about all manufacturers procedures in general do with OLED warranty. As these are people that have gone through what I have and also what the manufacturer and stores have told me and customers. I've never read or heard of a Sony getting burn in (I'm sure there are but very rare). Seems from C8 onwards LG have greatly reduced burn in possibilities. I only just got rid of my Panny plasma at the end of last year which I had for 15 years. Treated it well and always used TV static after watching to not get burn in. Seems with OLEDs if you do get burn in straight away it's a defective panel, which now seems to be recognised (in the states at least) but anything around a year or more and its considered customer usage which will leave you at fault (at least partially) all you need to do is vary your content and run some full screen slides after having logos or static images on the screen for a while.

    Crazy to buy a 2yr old tv for nearly $7000.. Especially given its been nearly $1000 cheaper in the past.
