X-series Bravia Oz Pricing

Recommended Posts

You would have 5 years anyway. 1 year manufacturers warranty, then the 4 years extended taking place afterwards. Dont think its worth going over the 5 years all up.

I've asked around Sydney on the 46X, without any haggling, I know they are willing to do it for around $5200 (no extended warranty). Has anyone broken the psychological brarrier of $5K or closer to $5K. Because some people are getting the 40X for just under $4k, that makes the extra 6" for the 46X over an extra $1K and I'm just trying to justify that to myself :blink:

Oh thanks for the clarification. I asked for "extended warranty" and didn't confirm what exactly it was. When I looked at the invoice certificate it read "4 years".

The sales guy tried to rob me off with a $100 -> $50 power surge thingy and a $200 -> 150+ monster DVI-HDMI cable. "No thanks" I said, Jay-Car FTW.. sheez..

Hi everyone, been searching for a good buy on the 46X and really appreciate this site to assist in getting the best deal. This is my first post.

We were offered the 46X for $5k at Good Guys in Campbelltown.

This did not include extended warranty.

I was too excited and forgot to ask.

Hi guys

I have posted this on another bravia thread and did not know how to link so sorry to all who have already read this but I felt it would be most relevant on this particular thread

Thought I would pass on my experiences of buying an X series last week in Perth - for all those out west who may be interested.

I have bought the 40 X series (September build) but I have no issues (yet) with backlight bleeding or any cloudness. I have been impressed with the picture and I am pleased with my purchase.

These are the prices I was quoted which may help

JB $4100 Warranty $369 - no stock

Good Guys $4500 Warranty $500 no stock

HN $3900 warranty 4300 - no stock

Rick Hart $4000 Warranty $300

Retravision $4600 Warranty $700 !!!!!!!!!!!

Sony Central $4500 Warranty $345

I went with Rick Hart as opposed to HN as they had stock and could be delivered the following day. The most outragous comment was made by the salesman at Retravision when I questioned him on why the were so expensive "were not going to go out of business to get a sale" well they will if they dont get sales in the first place. They also had the highest ticketed price of $5400, the others ranged from $4300 at HN to £4999

Hope this helps people get a better deal

cheers

Hi

How good is the internal hd tuner in the V and X series? Are they the same tuners? Would I be able to bypass the internal hd tuner with one of my own, not that I'm thinking of doing this but just curious.

Rgds

Patrick

I was looking at the 46 inch V series last week. I was actually buying a Sony SVR-HD700 PVR. I watched the tennis and cricket with the inbuilt HD tuner and then asked the sales guy to plug in the HD700. Thye HD700 was a liitle clearer , brighter and more natural looking.

Or it could be the PQ settings are different for the DVB and the input for the HD700. I know with my plasma, I had to set up each input differently to get the best picture

Deciding between Sony X series and the Samsung F series.

Both 40" inch 1080P LCD TV.

Cheapest quotes I got was.

Samsung F - $2900

Sony X - $3900

The Samsung is tempting because it 1K cheaper.

But the Sony look way better, In term of design.

Still deciding if I should purchase it now or wait till the PS3 is released in March. Hopefully if I wait till then the prices of these panels will drop.

Make sure you audition the Free To Air capabilities of both.. The result was what made the decision for me..

Yeah, I was in a Samsung store and asked them to play a few movies for me. They played a Blu Ray sample movie and then another DVD movie and I wasn't too impressed.

The Sony is not that expensive after you factor in buying a decent HD set top box for the Samsung since the Samsung does not include the HD set top box whereas the Sony does.

wow, I havent been shopping for tv's for a month since I was disappointed at the price range for 1080p screens, but $2900 seems awesome. Thats a F series samsung 40" 1080p right? -

http://www.samsung.com/au/products/tv/lcdtv/la40f71b.asp

Might have to go shopping again since thats more my price range :blink: And I would say wait until march(its not long) and get the samsung if your mainly watching hd/dvd and ps3. And these are pretty much first gen 1080p screens so I dont like the idea of paying too much, pay less now and buy a 2nd or 3rd gen 1080p later on instead of the sony brand name for the extra 1k.

If anyone can post a receipt for the KDL52X2000 under $8k, I'd very much appreciate it. My sister's got her heart set on one and is willing to drop ten grand on it!!

The good thing about getting it through Dell is it's easier to swing it as a business expense.

Haha, unless the tax man audits you. :blink:

Dell have just released their current pricing cycle on Sony Bravia X's with the KDL40X2000 at $4099 delivered.

The good thing about getting it through Dell is it's easier to swing it as a business expense. What do you all think of that price?

(46X is $5299 also)

What a shame they don't know what they are selling. From your link:

Incidentally, the Dell price is valid to 08/02/07. It will be interesting to see on Friday morning if the price changes for their next pricing 'cycle', as is their normal practice.
