    I had a W8 who have been in for repair 3 times for the same issue. They had the tv for 3 months and the could not fix the problem. So now Sony has given me my money back.

    My question is, should i by a new W8(2014) or look at the W7/W8(2015)? Or should i try to find a 4K set. Is it worth paying a £300-400 extra when there is so little 4K material. And will i get any better picture quality?

    Dunno if it's any help, but the W80 looked great to me - my local Currys had it set up next to an X83 (both 43") playing a Spiderman trailer (I think 720p upscaled), and there was a very marginal difference at ~7' viewing distance (the X83 image just had a very slight "something" to it).

    The X83 looked spectacular close-up when playing 4k content, but obviously as you get further away, it's less noticable.
