    If anyone is interested the Sony Centre have just put a large amount of refurbished TV’s including the XF9005 on their site for sale. The 55 inch is going for £799. I picked up a 49 inch before Xmas for £629 and it hadn’t been opened.

    looks like the 49 inch for 799 and 55 for 949, which is 150quid cheaper I guess compared to new.

    That’s a shame, they’ve put the prices up since midday. 49inch was £629 earlier and 55 inch was £799

    Given the prices of brand new ones from John Lewis et al I wouldn’t be touching either at the prices they’re currently at. The 55” was selling for £999 on Black Friday with a multi year warranty.

    I was going to post this for the 65" version that has been selling cheap. The prices seem to fluctuate though unfortunately.

    You should be able to get the XF90 in 55" in just a few months time for around £800-£900, this will be brand new with a warranty.

    Fantastic this, just like with Panasonic's refurb outlet on eBay you'll have to keep checking and get lucky when one pops up. They sell all sizes but they don't stay very long if they are listed at a good price.

    If you visit and don't see the size you want, don't give up.

    Also beware of @Analysis has said above, likely next year when the new "XG" is released this TV will be in clearance discounts.

    Are you still in 2018 Dodge?

    Only I thought the XG is for 2019, the current year.

    Received my 49" XF90 from the Sony Centre refurb store today. It was in a plain brown box but well wrapped up and everything looks brand new. Very pleased with it, big step up in image quality in HDR on my Xbox One X compared to my old XD80.

    I'd recommend testing it out with grey patterns for any screen uniformity or DSE(Dirty Screen Effect) issues, these can be found on Youtube or online, just display them and look and then you will know for sure if it's a keeper.

    Hope you enjoy it!
