Panasonic TXL47DT65B vs Sony KDL-46W905A vs Sony KDL-55W805A
English

wanting to buy a tv in a month or two and looking between these three models. they are all around £800-900 and have good reviews

 

which would you think is the best out of the three? bear in mind the 805a sony is 55" while others are 46 and 47"

 

i have read that the 905a has much better 3d and picture quality than the 805a and the panasonic has a 5 star rating review on whathifi and also excellent picture quality. i will be keeping this tv basically until it dies on me so i want a tv that i can be happy and enjoy for many years.

 

will only be watching blu rays/dvd's and playing games on the TV, no actual TV itself.

 

the 905a is active 3d, but what is it like to view active 3d? never tested it and if the 905a is suggested to me will have demo it instore at richer sounds.

 

you think these tvs will drop anymore in a couple months when the last of the 2013 models will be dropped out by stores?

This new Sony does well:

If it was me I would go bigger when you buy one.  Are you definitely set on this 3 or can we add more suggestions?  I can think of some others too.

The one I suggested above is a 5 star WHF review too.

You can get John Lewis to price match this and you get a free sound bar too.

Yep, you get this sound bar too:

That's £690 for the TV without the sound bar!

is there any need for the soundbar? i'll be using a home cinema 2.1 and eventually buying up to a 5.1 in the future. i could always sell it i guess if i did get the tv..

this tv is still a bit out of my price range until it drops price. i'm open to other tv suggestions yeah but 46" minimum i'd go for. and i want to stick with the makes of sony/panasonic/LG.

sorry i didnt word it properly in my first post i mentioned all 3 tv's are around the 800 mark but that is a bit too expensive for me at the moment. i mentioned i would get one in a couple months when the 2013 models might of dropped to around £700 or around that.

 

so yeah my budget is £650-700 (can stretch to 750 if need be) so have to wait for prices to come down for a good tv i guess

Well I have the sony 905a and the pic quality is tremendous having had a samsung D7000 recently the sony blows it out of the water and previously I had a Pioneer Kuro and although I no longer have this T.V to compare side by side i personally think the sony is equal to the kuro if that isnt enough praise I dont know what is go into a T.V shop and view them play with the settings no matter what the score in stars its down to personal taste really  Blum 3

Yep, you could sell it.  I would demo the TV still along with the others and compare them.

i'll have to keep thinking. may not get a subwoofer and use some of the sub money towards a better tv.

 

i'll demo the 55" sony i mentioned and see how it looks compared to the 2014 sony model and some others.
