  1. How much is the Sony 100 inch ? I am sure I cannot afford it though. Very curious though.
  2. I will probably not miss Dolby vision as I have never heard of it. LOL Have to get back up to speed on the latest. Problem is the "latest" only lasts one week. Thanks for the info.
  3. Blackman I am seriously thinking of the Sony 85 inch KD85X8500D Did you have a look at that one. Only $7900 at the moment. May even get it down further with cash and self pick up and install.
  4. thanks for posting Peter Does anyone have one of the Sony KD85X8500D $7900 for an 85 inch 4k tv does not sound too bad. 85 in was about 13 to 15k last time I looked. Does anyone have one or any feedback ?
  5. Blackman, good luck with the fitting. I hope it all goes well. Thanks for posting all this stuff and for Owen too for his knowledge. I must admit nowadays, I am just looking for a bigger screen. A projector in my future with a drop down screen in front of a tv. cheers
  6. One of the things I found surprising was that the sales guy did not know that Sony were not bringing in the 100 inch for australia. I do not think he even knew there was a 100 inch. He just focused on what was on his floor. Cannot blame him for selling what he has.
  7. I went into HN today at Campbelltown to get some printer ink. Anyway looked at a 85 inch Sony 8500 series I think it was and it looked pretty good. The floor price was $8995. Then looked at the 65 inch ZD9 Sony and it looked so small. There was a 9 series sony 65 near it and playing the same footage and looking between the two the ZD9 did look a bit more natural in the colours. The Z9D was $5K. I thought the 85 for 9 k was better value just because of its size.
  8. Sony have no plans to bring in the 100 inch ZD9. I already put a post up about that in the last week or two. I contacted Sony personally. It took 2 phone calls and 3 emails to get them to answer my question about price and availability of the 100 inch. Their final answer after two weeks was "Sony have no plans at this time to bring in the 100 inch version of the ZD9" I could have given you a name but I deleted all my old emails 2 days ago to free computer space. I did not ask about the 75 inch. Too small I think if you can already get 85 inch screens.
  9. The GTS-R is only about $110K it is the W1 version that is $170K. But they are all sold before they started production. The normal GTS-R is not limited just a HSV car. I agree with you re security people. Delivery drivers are the worst. Deliver something to a house and their friends go back and steal that night.
  10. Sounds to me like you got yourself the last of the HSV GTS-R or maybe even the W1. Which colour did you get. I love the orange colour. Anyway back to TV's. Cannot wait to hear what you end up with. When I retire I have thought a lot about a 130 inch Screen Technics retractable screen in front of a large, say 85 inch flat panel on the wall. i currently have a 65 inch panasonic VT20 wall mounted. When its time for a movie. Turn off the TV, lower the screen, turn on my 3 submersives, lower the whatever the PJ is out of the ceiling on a motorised mount and sit back and enjoy the show. That is the plan. Have to retire first.
  11. Blackman, All the best with your search. I will be keen to see what you end up with. I was keen on splurging on a 85 inch something but after my Panasonic Plasma from 2008 failed in 2015 I have become a bit more sceptical about the cost vs useful life. (My old Pana 63cm CRT went for 25 years.) I recently sent Sony an email about their 100 inch Z9 model and it took 2 more emails and two weeks wait for them to come back to me to say. No plans to have in Australia at this stage. This is with the fact that it is clearly shown and highlighted on the Australian webpage. Good luck with your health and your search. BTW would love to know your taste in cars. I have some nice motorcycles.
  12. I wrote to Sony about the 100 inch. It took over a week and another email to them to get them to respond but the short answer was they have no plans to market the 100 inch in Australia in 2017. I did not ask about the 75 but I guess they may have mentioned it. Pretty poor response from their info/post sales department. Hope you enjoy the 65.
  13. Thanks Doogie thanks for that I did not look too hard but did not pick that up. I wonder if they were next to each other whether I could see the difference.
