Some orders now placed.
Looking forward to feedback on this one
So owners post away please
Sony have got the pricing absolutely right this year, lovely looking set.
Looking forwards to people’s thoughts on this, I have preordered, my first OLED and first 65”. In Ireland, not getting until first week of May, so will torture myself watching this thread until then!!
Pre ordered 65 inch version .... first oled

Sony A8F (AF8) OLED review - FlatpanelsHD
Reads well enough to me, I’m waiting to place my order with RS as and when they get stock.
Have they gave you a date of when there expecting stock ?
Still down as the 24th
Agreed, that’s what I’ve been told. As I’m asking for a bundle deal they won’t agree terms until they have physical stock.
What are you asking for?
I’m after the AF8 65” + Sony 1080 AVR + Sony X700 UHD player.
They reckon they will be able to offer me a good deal (probably because the 1080 AVR is going to be superseded soon).
As there is a deal being offered in Scotland to buy the KD65AF8BU plus the X700 for £3328 (saving £200) I’m hoping they will be able to do something worthwhile for me at RS.
Hopefully theres no delays.
You after 55 or 65 ?
65”. I have a 55” LED atm, remember thinking it was huge when we put it up on the wall...but I don’t even notice the size any more and have decided we could go bigger, so I really want the 65”...can’t believe the wife has agreed with me on it!!
That gets small fast too lol
Hi all. Quick question. If I want to get Dolby Atmos from the Netflix app within the AF8, would it be possible? Hoping to connect it up to the new Sony Soundbar!
No as they dont support eArc. They may do later on but if its anything like the DV update you might be waiting awhile.
If I bought an Apple TV would that bypass all the OS woes?
Android aint the best but Once your settings are dailed in you will probably only be using it for amazon and netflix yea ? Im sure it will be fine but yea a apple tv will obviously take over the duties of netflix and amazon if it has it.
Yeah mate just Netflix and amazon
You will be fine mate its not the best and can be sluggish jumping through the TV menus but after your settings are doing thats the only time you will be in there. Its defo not as slick and responsive as webos which is the best os put there
Was it ever sluggish when playing about with the volume or channel/input switching?
Sony KD-65AF8 65
In stock so the site says
Can anyone confirm that this sits at a slight backward tilt? Any review or previews are saying it's "upright" but all press shots look to me like it' sitting back at maybe 1 or 2 degrees...?
Watching the Abt overview, at 0:40 it does indeed look like it leans back very slightly. Presumably a few business cards strategically placed under the back edge of the stand would bring it back up to the vertical? Really can't understand why they couldn't design it to be properly upright in the first place, though.
i might not wall mount this time and sit tv on my 38cm high unit, this is very low so the slight angle may work. Just ordered the 65", my first OLED, coming from a patchy DSE filled Samsung 60KS7000. Nervous but excited!
Where did you order from ?
Harvey Norman, I'm in Dublin - €3899, with free Sony x800 UHD player & 5 yr guarantee
Why the x800 ? I wont get the DV update your best off getting the 700
x700 is a horrible small cheap plactic POS, with a power brick (i think). DV by disc isn't important to me anyway, x800 much nicer player, all IMO of course! I'll prob sell it anyway - I've a samsung m9000 that does the job for now
