I saw a few threads on TV deals being posted here so thought I'd start a thread where people can post their findings on the best TV deals here.

P.s I'm also looking for a good deal on a 55"+ TV.

I'm looking for a premium end ~50" LED at around sub $1500

 

 

 

Sony KD-49X9000E - $1497 - Harvey Norman

 

TCL 55X2US - $1736 - JBHifi

 

Panasonic TH-58EX730Z - $1298 - JBHifi

 

 

 

There seems to be a lot of talk of the Sony being the best of the non-OLED TVs so I'm edging towards that.

Common sense is not as common as you think.

I've never gotten the point of curved TVs.

If the Sony KD55X8500E gets to just over the $1000 mark, that would be a bargain.

If anyone spots a good quality 4K 43" TV preferably with Android TV, or Android/IOS Casting ability, please let me know. Ideally under $1k.

 

W800C from Sony was my first choice, disappeared for a reason I can't fathom.

This is a great TV based on the fact I have the previous model and I like it.

If it got under $1500 before march, in NZ, it'd be a bargain.

I still can't tell a "good" LED tv panel type from a "bad" type just by looking at the model and price. *sigh why don't they put the panel specs on the specs page

An OLED is the only TV worth buying.. And the 55" B7 is under $3k everywhere.

Thought about one myself ($1888 here), but two things.... We want to sell the house, and.... LG...

 

Had an LG before the Sony I have now.

 

In-laws have an LG, Brother-In-Law has an LG... While none of them are OLED, they have the latest OS, and I hate it.

I'd rather get a TV for just over 1k considering how much I spent on the Moet. :P

LG have moved on from their days of being Lucky Goldstar. :)

I actually don't mind their OS and rate it above Android TV on the Sony.

hahaha... My LG was 2012.

 

That's the thing tho... I have a Sony AndroidTV and live with it daily (2015 X8500C), and spent the day today at the brother-in-laws, with his 2017 LG... I wouldn't want that in my house ever.

 

And the parents-in-laws 2015 LG.... Even worse.

 

Each  to their own.

I wonder if Harvey Norman will price beat Noel Leeming or Heathcote for the Sony 55" KD55X8500E TV.
