Sony W4500, Z4500 And Xbr45


Recommended Posts

I heard the Sony price rise of 7% was coming in 1st Feb. That's what spooked me into buying my 52 W series ($3548 Sony Central, Brisbane). Glad I did - i'm loving it - have my Media Centre PC driving it via a DVI -> HDMI cable - sweet (one remote)...

re prices who knows - i have a feeling there will be a rise across the board in the coming months but I guess todays models will be discounted when new ones come out

the 52 when I first bought it home I thought wow taht's big maybe I could have got away with the size below - but really you get used to it quite quickly - the tennis is amazing - and another advantage is when watching DVD's in letterbox format the bigger screen works well

I just bought a KDL46W4500 for $2799 at David Jones who'll price match anyone, also got it at 3 years interest free on repayments and I bought an extra 4 year warranty

Goodguys started the pricing at $2800 down from $2997 which was their invoice + $1

What have you found with regard to after sales warranty?

JB Hifi have a up to cost of item maximum in labour + parts for repairs and a 'at their discretion' lemon replacement

David Jones has a up to cose of item max for repairs and after 3 faults, at the 4th the unit is replaced, i.e. no 4th repair and at $279 for a $2800 unit

Good Guys said their warranty had no $ cap for repairs and was $429, not sure on the lemon replacement

Not bad. I just got one for our house KDL46W4500 for $2600 + 3 Year Warranty ($169) + Delivery $55 = $2824.

Now that is called a deal. It was bought from Myer. They have a no-lemon policy on their TV's too.

Which Myer was this?

Best I could find was $3000 with 4 year warranty delivered from Bing Lee.

I am also asking a similiar question.... do I buy a Sony KDL40V4000 40" OR

Should I spend an extra $500 and get a KDL40W4500 40"

or an extra $700 and get a Sony KDL40XBR 40"

Still to make my decision and I'm wondering what the Z series offers over the W for the $800 or so extra. Is it worth going down to 40 inch and get the XBR or staying the 46 and going the W or Z?

The Z4500 over the W4500, as far as I can tell, only offers 200hz and extra contrast (80,000 on the Z4500 vs 50,000 on the W4500).

If you watch a lot of sports, the Z4500 might just be worth the extra dollars. However, I don't know how applicable 200hz technology is for LCD technology, which still doesn't boast terrific refresh rates.

I'm after 52W4500 as well and I think you got the best price. Would appreciate if you could share your invoice for price matching. Thanks

Is $1879 a good price for the KDL40V4000? Includes free PS3.

I think so.

I thought $1498 just for the TV alone was pretty decent so your deal's essentially that plus a PS3 for only an extra $377. Is it the current 80Gb model with DS3?

Nice going!

Finally got my KDL52z4500. Love it! AFL and cricket looks fantastic. Very happy with everything. Got it for $3950 + $50 delivery. Paid by card. I bargained very hard for it. Also pre-ordered it before the price rise. The unit took about 3 weeks to get into stock.

Anyone have any updates on good prices for the 46z4500? Is $3500 excluding extended warranty a good deal?

Thanks

In JB HiFi Hornsby, NSW - I got a quote (early Feb) at that price $3500 including 5yrs warranty and delivery. That was early Feb.

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)

That’s a great deal on the TV and an added bonus with the DJ gift cards.

I'm also looking into purchasing the Sony 40XBR45 LCD and wondering if you can forward/email your receipt so I can do a price match at my local DJ store.

Just purchased a 46z4500 for $3450 from HN Indro including 5 year extended warranty and delivery. Thanks to everyone for helping me get this price. Purchased a Tivo and wireless adaptor at the same time. Not sure if this helped get the price I got. The TV itself is ticketed at $3499 at the moment.
