Sony W4500, Z4500 And Xbr45

Recommended Posts

Sony has now posted RRPs for their new models online.

KDL40W4500 = $2,699

KDL46W4500 = $3,399

KDL52W4500 = $4,399

KDL40Z4500 = $3,399

KDL46Z4500 = $4,099

KDL52Z4500 = $5,099

KDL40XBR45 = $3,999

KDL46XBR45 = $6,999

KDL55XBR45 = $9,999

So, has anyone seen these in stores yet? Purchased? What price did you haggle.

I've been waiting for the 46" W4500 and its RRP is a lot lower than what I was expecting (based on the launch prices of previous models)

Gday Lastmile.

I have been verbally quoted 52Z4500 for $4400 and 52W4500 for $3900 and that wasn't even trying much.

I am very interested in the Z4500 but only at the right price and for me that is in the low 4's with a warranty considereing that a Samsung 52 A650 can be had in the low 3's with similar specs.

I think that with the global downturn, lowering consumer interest in discretionary items and the lower Aussie dollar, SOny are going to be up against it here in Oz, to shift a large volume of these TV's especially at the typical "It's a Sony" price approach. They might even have to wind back some production volumes or be forced to drastically reduce prices to keep those factories producing at the same levels...

Sony's competition seem to be getting, if not have gained the edge over Mr S... in the $ per useful technology stakes

Sony Central are quoting the KDL52Z4500 at $4799.00.

Would also like to know who has a lower price as I am ready to purchase

I also heard $4400 for the KDL52Z4500 from Bing Lee, but they didn't expect stock until mid-December

My verbal came from Sony Central as well

It won't be long and there will be a Sony GB on these new TV models and the salespeople won't miss an opportunity to sell a good 60 to 70 TV's in one deal...

The prices will come down, unless the Aussie dollar keeps dropping like it has been :-(

But this is good for exports :-)

The real exchange rate to watch is the Yen to AUD I suppose

Their address sugests they are Tasman AV or the Web sales arm of this company. Part of the NARTA buying group

Looks like a good price

No luck in tracking down a W4500 yet. Even Sony Central in Sydney aren't expecting them until the end of the month.

I did spot a 46" XBR45 in David Jones, Woden, but with sticker price of $6,999 it's just pure fantasy.

I hope some of these quoted prices for Z4500 are serious. Big savings on the Z series suggest similar savings on the W2 series.

Webprice.com.au have recently updated their W Series page with prices for the 40" and 46" W4500s.

http://www.webprice.com.au/page/shop/brows...y_braviawseries

KDL40W4500 = $2449

KDL46W4500 = $3050

I've just given them a call and the TVs are not actually in stock yet, they're just taking pre-orders. Sony have advised them mid-to-late November.

They also confirmed that shipping to Canberra would be overnight.

I was quoted $4100 for the 52" W4500 from Harvey Norman.

The salesman said they should be here in 2 weeks.

On a whim I stopped by Myer Belconnen on the way home after work as was shocked to find that they had two 46" W4500s in stock.

Told the sales person (Stewart) if he could beat Webprice.com.au plus shipping ($3119) I'd take one on the spot.

Walked out the door 5 minutes later with a new TV for $3100.

Now I need to do some major re-arranging of the entertainment unit. This TV is replacing a 10 yr old 60cm Panasonic CRT.

Save yourself $2000 at the place below. They are a fine looking set I must say, Harvey Norman FountainGate has them (next to the LG's so that could be the reason why) but they look awesome.

Has anyone seen a 52 " Z series yet?

JB have said they will beat a price I was quoted from another retailer that was $4599.00.

I recon the "Go" price on this panel will be about $4499.00 in many shops. (Not the web site dealers without shop fronts)

I am not comfortable purchasing such a large ticket item where there is not physical address you can go to when things go pear shaped

Just spotted a 40 inch Z4500 at JB Nunawading, confined to the corner of the TV displays. My first sighting.

I am after a 52" w4500.

I am putting off getting one right at the moment in case Sony run a promo the week after I buy it :angry:

Does anyone know if Sony are going to run the PS3 give away promo with these new sets?

I saw the KDL55XBR45 at HN Auburn over the weekend. Also saw the Samsung 55" A950. Forgot the name of the animation they were both showing but I think it was from Dreamworks.

Admittedly, I couldn't really tell the two apart in terms of picture qty.

I have heard a rumor that next week Sony Central will be having a sale.

The 46" W4500 RRP $3399 will be going for $2499.

If this is true I will be getting my 52" next week :)

Hey Grunta, did they let you know when they may get a 52" Z4500 in stock?

I have been told they have the full new series in stock.

But they will not be dropping the price of the Z series by much because they are the new 200HZ.
