New 2007 Bravia X / Xbr Series Group Buy

Recommended Posts

I went to JB yesterday and with no haggling, the KDL46X3100 was offered to me for $3700 and the XBR for $3900. Nothing special about these prices, but it does make you wonder what you could get one for if you tried ;) It's just a pity the glass trim on the new X range is so dam ugly!!!!

Does anyone know how much the retails stores actually buy the 52" X Series for? is it well under $5000?

I think the floating glass design will date. But I'm going to buy a 40x3100 anyway. The W is the looker in the range, IMHO.

Totally agree. Both the dating and the W being the looker. That was my only hesitation, however I went ahead and bought a 40X3100 probably for the smae reasons you are planning too.

The owner of a Retravision store told me that the New Bravia LCD Panels are made by Samsung, is this true?

Yep its true. Samsung and Sony have a join venture in Japan with their production of LCD's.

The comment he made that made me more weary of him was that he implied that they were practically the same TV so i should buy the cheaper Samsung. If they were exactly the same why doesnt the Samsungs have native 24p support like the Sony?

I believe that the actual LCD panel is the same, but the main board and electronics is slightly different which would give the reason that Samsungs dont have native 24p. I'm not 100% tho, mabey another DTV member can explain this a little better.

Can someone guide as to what is the price for these models?

40IN X SERIES FULL HD - KDL40X3100

40IN W SERIES FULL HD - KDL40W3100

What is the big difference between the two. It is to be hooked up to a Xbox 360 Elite (Black model). Black exterior is my preference.

For those in Brisbane, feel free to PM me.

I've dealt with some of the Brisbane buyers in the Group Buy.

We have access to all the Sony models including the XBR.

Sony RRP prices have come down since the last big Sydney GB and you'll probably get the same price now with haggling.

This place has good prices and free Melb delivery

I'm in Brisbane and am interested in a group buy. I'm after a 46X series (or the 46W).

I do want to wait until Friday to hear if the free PS3 by redemption are true though. I hear it is for the X and XBR's only though.

Anyone want to comment any further on this free PS3, I heard it too today but cannot confirm. If it is true, I think it starts from the 21st December. Although I do have a region A player, this offer would tempt me to fork out my hard earned....

hopefully then, production will stay in Japan. otherwise i would be snapping up a X or XBR pretty quickly.

dont like the sound of the 'joint venture' ... Sony are better off on their own.

Not sure about Bravia only, but I bought a 46X3100, a 40GB PS3, a Venturi wall-mount for the Bravia and a PS3 Blu-Ray Remote for $4100 all up at DSE (Macquarie Power House, North Ryde) 2 days ago. The docket has the TV down for $3400.

There's definitely deals around...

Oh, and hi! First post, so much to learn! You're gonna find my ignorant questions in the Bravia mega-thread... :blush:

Cheers

Steffen.

Hi all,

I haven't read this thread, so please don't bite me if the info is already there (it's 100 pages long! :wacko: )

I'm interested in a 52" XBR, and noticed the RRP was $6,799...what seems to be a good price for this one? and is there going to be a group buy on this item? It seems to be the largest I can find and the best of it's size...and with the free PS3, it's good value! :D (even tho I already have one, I'll sell it and make some cash back :P )

Can anyone let me know? Thanks!! :D

Also, I'm located in Newcastle NSW, if that's relevant.
