Just grabbed a 55XF9005 too! Still seems to be in stock....
The Hisense B7100 will be similar to the GX800. That's why the GX800 is mentioned in the special mention section of my best buy guide. Its effectively an over-priced budget TV. You really should not be pitting it up against the Sony XF9005 as that TV is a lot, lot better.I should have added an asterisk to the 65" part - I saw the Hisense 65" b7100 going for less than £450 which was certainly alluring and that was fresh in my mind at the time, though I know that it's an inferior TV and can't be compared to the xf9005 (or even gx800?).
Right now I'm more drawn towards the panasonic gx800/820, which would give 3 more inches and cost £150 less than the xf9005 if I can snag the deal. I know you're not a big fan of the TV because of the high price point for the 60hz panel (I've read plenty of your posts and comments - thanks for being so helpful), but at £400 I think it's too hard for me to not get it. I'm not too worried about the 1 year warranty.
it’s a very nice tv.Just seen this thread, i was looking at a 55AG8 via a work scheme and it was 1k with 5 year warranty refurb. I didnt really need anything this expensive but all the 9005 seem to have gone. What do people think? wait for better deal or is this hot?
That was not a misprice.65Ag9 was mispriced at £1549,at least one person got it
I know this was £1549 in a sale 3 months ago but this was a misprice as it went up to £2149 after a few mins,the 65xf9005 was priced at £749 but also increased in price to £799 after 2 mins,clearly an error was made as they don't have a sale on at the mo..That was not a misprice.
I paid the same for mine a couple of months ago and ordered it over the phone. I also paid about £170 extra for a 5 year guarantee.
This weekend they also had the 65AG8 for £1349 (or maybe £1399 cannot remember.)
Have got my eye on the 55XG8096 for £399. Does this have an IPS panel (need wide viewing angles)? Also, how can you tell whether it’s a Grade A or B refurb?
