Wag masyado atat kasi baka mamya bumili ka agad ng pagkabago-bagong appliance tapos magulat ka nalang biglang mag sale yan the next day. Hinayang ka pa sa natipid mo sana kung nag antay ka. :sweat:
iniisip ko din to eh, baka kasi mauna pa masira yung bibilin kong tv, tv ko nga 4 yrs ko na ginagamit nauna pa bumigay branded na tv ng barkada ko naka 2 palit sya sakin buhay pa rin. tagal lang masira hahaha :facepalm:

yung ups ko ngayon lang nasira baka yun na lang palitan ko hahaha
Eto pa isang tip, don't overspend on stuff that you won't need right away or you won't use often. Kaya ako pipitsugin man yung nabili ko na led TV (sharp brand) ok lang kasi binili ko lang naman talaga sya for gaming purposes lang at hindi pampanood ng tv parati. Wala pa kasi ako sariling tv dito sa kwarto ko. Swak naman yung image quality nya for my taste so hindi ako nasayangan sa nagasta ko for it. Tsaka ako maingat talaga ako sa mga gamit ko, wala pa ko nabiling gadget o appliance na madaling bumigay, lahat tumatagal ng taon kasi ang usage ko hindi din magdamagan (maximum 4hrs when gaming). I turn them off properly and unplug from wall socket if not in use. I also did a DIY cover for it para hindi pasukan ng dumi.

VsAssassin wrote:Bro Ron, saan mo recommended bumili ng TV, online or sa physical stores (Abenson, Anson's, etc.)? Makakamura ba ako sa online? And by the way, have you guys seen Sony's CES presentation? Ganda nung speakerless TV! Pero I think ang presyo nun ay maganda rin lol!
Sa experience ko sa online pinaka mura and good indication sa totoong price ng tv. Sa physical stores kasi minsan iba iba talaga, pero may times din na makaka chamba ka.

So my advice is to do both (look online and at the stores). Maganda din kasi sa stores eh matetest mo unit bago o iuwi. Sa sights and sounds ako bumili ng tv and reliable store sila so di ako nag hesitate umorder.

Pero may kaibigan ako sa olx lang bumili and wala naman problema and official warranty pa.

Mga sir. Planning to buy sony 43 x8000d this march 15( sakto sa sahod. Haha.) Is it too late na ba bumili kasi lalabas na mga 2017 models this april sabi ng mga sales agents? Or ok pa naman bumili? Iniisip ko lang kasi baka pag labas ng 2017 tv models di kayanin ng budget ko. 35k lang kasi budget ko.

This will sound a bit weird since i bought the same tv not long ago, but i would say wait until the price drops. Or wait for the 2017 models.

Regardless, the x800d is a fantastic tv.

Set mo lang sa game mode :)

I keep my brightness at around 15-25 (depending on the conditions of ambient light) during the day, and at 1-5 pag naka patay ilaw sa gabi.

Contrast is around 80, and i turn off (or set to zero) all the contrast enhancements, motionflow, black adjust, etc.

For color I think 55, with dynamic color off. Sharpness is kept at the default (50 I think).

Pag HDR, mag aadjust naman by itself yung brightness to the max so no need to tinker with that.

Thats it, enjoy!

sirs confirm ko lang kung talagang native 50hz TEXT SPEAK VIOLATION x8000D? That's what it says kasi on all sony webpages. yung x800D na US version kasi is native 60Hz. Would be buying this sana pero that's my dealbreaker.

If talagang 50hz native sya, how's 60fps gaming there?

Also any alternative TVs you can suggest? thanks guys!

It's a 60 hz set. 50 hz is for PAL territories only. http://www.sony.com.ph/electronics/tele ... ifications

If you prefer size (and your budget is around the 30k price range), the Samsung 49ku6300 is around 30,000-31,000 pesos right now. It's Curved, UHD, Smart, 4k tv with HDR. The main advantage it has over the x8000d is the size, and the deeper blacks.

But the Sony wins in terms of the HDR quality, since it has a 10 bit panel, whereas the ku6300 is only an 8 bit panel. So you have better colors (even in non-HDR mode).

I think PQ wise, they're about even, it's up to your preference lang.

Thanks Ron! Just apprehensive with this kasi on PH and other Asian websites it says this:

Pero in the US (x800D)

Anyway, kung ok naman experience nyo with this, I'll go with it too :) And yeah I'm after the 10-bit panel.

I think thats the card price. Ask for the cash price, it should be at 31,000 or so.

Sights and sounds had it at 31.5k when i bought it last november.

Sir based sa review ng rtings, the x8000e is worse than the x8000d. Try to look for the x8000d. Sa sights and sounds baka meron pa.
