    Which 55" OLED - Sony A8 or Philips 805?

    Hi I'm looking to buy a new 55" OLED in the BF sales. I have narrowed my choice down to either the Philips 805 or Sony A8. I have been able to view the Sony in my local Currys, but they didn't have the Philips. In terms of what is important, I currently don't have access to any 4k content...

    Upgrade worth it? Sony 49XF90 to Sony 55A8

    Hi, I’ve a Sony KD49XF9005 TV that I bought in October 2018 (in U.K., from JLP, so still in warranty) I was wondering if it’s worth upgrading to Sony KD55A8? Or should I wait for few more years?

    Question Unhappy with GZ950's near black rendering... considering HZ1000 vs Sony A8 instead (?)

    So I've just bought a Panasonic 65" GZ950 and I'm not convinced at all about how it handles the near-black levels and low-key scenes. There's no natural gradient into the blacks, just a harsh fall. I've tried both the out of the box THX and Professional setups to no success (at 2.2 gamma), and...

    Macroblocking and noise on new Sony A8 OLED

    Hello Last week I received a new Sony A8 and while I am incredibly happy with the picture in almost every respect, there have been a few issues which are troubling me...mainly lots of noise in some near dark scenes and macroblocking. I first noticed it when watching a Blu Ray of the TV show...

    Question Is the BRITBOX App on the Sony A8 OLED

    Can't find any information on whether the Britbox app is on the Sony A8 & the AG9 also. If yes great, it's a household favourite. If not can it be downloaded from Google Play. Thank you.

    Question Corner Situated Sony A8 Sound Quailty

    I intend to upgrade my current 55inch Panasonic OLED to a 65inch model. Due to room design & furniture place the TV goes in the corner, I have read elsewhere that the sound quality is sub standard if not viewed head on. Perhaps someone who already has an acoustic screen Sony preferably in the...

    48” OLED : LG CX or Sony A9 or ... ?

    My 43“ Panasonic plasma screen is still going strong after over 15 years, but my receiver of a similar vintage is becoming unreliable (takes several goes to fire it up). So the time has come to bite the bullet. I could get a replacement receiver, but it is overkill as I mainly use the system...

    Sony A8 or Samsung Q90T?

    Hi guys I'm in a bit of a dilemma, as are most in this forum...... I've managed to narrow down my search to the Sony A8 and Samsung Q90T - based on reviews and the wife's opinion (doesn't like LG, or thick bezel, or this, or that.....) So I'm down to the 55" Sammy LED and Sony OLED. We...

    Question Panasonic GZ1500 now or Sony A8 Later

    All most ready to upgrade our current 55inch Panasonic oled to a 65inch TV. Very happy happy with the Pan which is to be moved to the bedroom. The only thing stopping me buying the Panasonic is the Sony A8. Possibly I'm being irrational but I suppose I've got to decide before the Pans are all...

    Sony A9G or A8 Oled

    Hi there, I was really quite set on picking up the AG9 for my man cave. This was until the A8 gate crashed the party. Lol. I’m now confused, after reading some rather flattering reviews about the A8. Is there really a huge/ tangible difference in the feature set and picture quality b/w...
