I think I saw somewhere that it's coming out in late summer. So got a while to wait yet... (I'm also waiting for that tv)
Do they usually release their top end LCDs that late? Wondering if this will affect black Friday price drops we usually see.

I’m waiting for that TV as well, it will be June at the latest as they will definitely want to be cashing in on Euro 2020 and people buying bigger and better TVs.

No. The XH95 for example was released before the XH90 last year. It's just that the pandemic has messed things up a bit, so the release dates are a bit all over the place this year.

I think it looks like OLED BUT it is impossible and this review is useless because it is not close to what our eyes see in real life

Had an email from Sony, who say my SevenOaks order (A90J 65") has left their warehouse and been passed to the delivery company, who will be in touch to "arrange a convenient date" for delivery.

How about nooooowwwwwwwwww.

EDIT: Bank Holiday Monday delivery, I'll take that. Especially as the other half will be around to help lift it onto the stand...

Some great cashback action here in The Netherlands from 29.04.2021till 27.06.2021 (due to Euro 2021 soccer)

Like € 1000,- cashback for a € 4999,- 77A80J (real price should be lower after negotiation).
Oh boy :rotfl:

Interesting, but never really understood the concept of "cashback"? Why not make it just a straight discount on the purchase price? Taking into account the cost of administering it all, I can't see any benefit to consumer or retailer/manufacturer.

Is that via Sony or some kind of cash back site like Quidco etc?

It think it is a mind game. When people think they can make a great deal, but the offer is there for a limited perioded, their mind forces them to take the deal. Must be the FOMO effect ;) :D

Yeah, but you can easily achieve that with a 10% off voucher, or a Black Friday sale? Cashback just strikes me as messy. How does it work, you get the cashback after say three or six months?

It is easy:
  • Purchase has to be made within the action period;
  • After that you have to make (or have) a 'my Sony' account to log in to the Sony site;
  • Fill in the requested info and upload photos of the original sticker on the box (which has the model number, barcode and serial number on it) and your invoice;
  • Your money will be on your bank account within 30-60 days after the claim has been approved.
I have done this for my Sony W905 and other purchases. Never had any problems with claiming my money,
