KDL55W905 any good?
English

Currys have got this tv for 1150. Techradar give it a good review, is it worth getting or is there a better set for less than 1200.

TV will be used for regular tv and blu-ray.

It's a very good TV, marred by limited viewing angles. Demo it, and walk across it from one side to the other. Also look at Sony 55W829.

I would strongly advise you to buy from John Lewis or Richer Sounds instead of Currys for a far superior after sales support and a free 5 year warranty.

Thanks for the info. The W829 does sound good.  Will demo the W905 to see if there are issues with my lounge viewing angles.

Richer sounds do a free blu-ray with the W829 which is tempting.

Join their VIP club. It's free, and you get a free 5 year warranty with TV:

Remember they also price match, if you find a cheaper deal.

Bigboss again thank for the info. Have opted for the W829 from Richer Sounds.  Free blu-ray and 5 year warranty. Great deal
