Managed to get this tele yesterday for $5500, paid on Amex (which has a 10points for every dollar spent when >$400 @ DSE), which was fairly easy to negotiate to (from DSE).

Extended warranty was on top, it cost $250 for 4 extra years.

In the end great deal i thought, means a free international trip, free PS3! Thanks dtv

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.

Bought a 46" XBR today at Harvey Norman Sunshine for $3760 which included a HDMI Cable that had a retail price of $80 and also PS3 redemption.

Did not want to take the offer of extended warranty. Have not heard any complaints from this model so I take the risk.

Went and visited over the past 2 days: Clive Peters (Braybrook), JB HI-FI (Watergardens & Highpoint), Retravision (Watergardens & Sunshine), Good Guys (Watergardens & Highpoint) and Harvey Norman topped them all off. Was suprised JB-Hi-Fi couldn't match or do better!!!

Just to let people know that stock of the 'X' is certainly sold out everywhere in the above stores and limited stock of 'XBR' only left in a few.

Harvey Norman Sunshine do a better deal on the XBR than the X as they have bucket loads of XBR in stock.

DXB, have a read of the best price thread and the wiki

http://hdtvprices.pbwiki.com/FrontPage

Larry

Thanks for the wiki link. Is there any way to find out who posted to this wiki, so I can contact them and ask them to send me a receipt? I am particularly interested in the $5300 price for the 52" KDL52XBR from JB Hi Fi at Knox City.

FYI, I went to "Go Audio" in Melbourne Central at lunch time today and the salesman said that the lowest they could go on the 52" was "around $5700", and that $5300 was "impossible because it was below cost".

Thanks

Hi Kevin

Was 'GO Audio' saying the 52" 'XBR' or the 'X' series was around the $5700?

A friend of a friend of a friend who works in a Retravision store could only do $5499 for the 'X'. Told me its just above cost but I'm not to sure of that.

Jasperdog,

I was talking to the "Go Audio" guy about the XBR - the $5700 price was for the XBR.

cheers

Guys, I am sure this has been asked before - so apologies in advance - but is there any difference in the X and XBR series apart from the Bezel?

thanks

Good shopping! By the way, the Go Audio $5700 quote included delivery and installation (on the stand, not onto a wall), and they take the empty boxes away also. Harvey Norman quoted me $65 for delivery. Go Audio also told me they'd give a 2% discount for cash.

Cheers

According to sales guys at HN and Good Guys Maitland (NSW) only difference is the fascia. Specs from Sony brochure seem to support this.

Prices seem to be coming down as I was quoted $5150 for a 52X including 3 years warranty by Harvey Norman at Maitland. (Did not include delivery or install) and I have not even looked at Domayne, JB, Bing Lee in Newcastle yet.

Hi, I just bought a 52 inch bravia xbr from the Good Guys at Capalaba, for $5100. I did also get a panasonic dvd recorder, a kenwood 500w stereo sys (with amp), and a bagless vac, so my total amount was $6100 but I think that was a pretty good deal (salesman was Craig S). As an added bonus, Sony is currently offering a free PS3 by redemption with any Bravia purchase. The next lowest quote I got for the tv alone was $5400 at Good Guys Carseldine (salesman was Sam).

the tv looks fantastic.

mark_s: Yes, the 40" XBR includes a free PS3. Refer: http://www.sony.com.au/homecinema/article.jsp?id=4047

All,

I purchased a 52" Bravia XBR on 30th Dec. Details:

WHAT: KDL52XBR

WHEN: 30/12/2007

WHERE: Retravision Knox City, Victoria [original salesman was Len Gardner on 29/12, then Aidan Pivetta on 30/12]

HOW MUCH: Package deal of the TV and 4yr extended warranty - TV invoiced at $5231, +4yr Warranty at $369. Extra $30 to deliver. Delivery ETA mid Jan 2008. Warranty was about $80 more than at Dick Smith Powerhouse, but is provided by AIG (large insurer I've had other insurance with) and apparently mirrors the 1yr Sony Warranty.

STATUS: Online registration done.

MAILED: Not yet, waiting on TV to be delivered for serial number.

Another relative of mine then purchased the 46" from the same salesman on 31/12, paid $3750 for the TV. Both of us wanted to take advantage of the Amex offer (10 bonus points for every $ spent at certain electrical stores) that finished 31/12.

cheers

Kevin
