Why make it a smart TV? That adds so much to the price... Just get a pc or a good set top box and boom any TV is smart... I want to know how much the non-smart equivalent of this would be...
does the TV can ship to China?
if you mount it on a wall youre fucked if u ever have to change a cable in the back...

Understood. I don't want to see that stuff. So rears only.
RoyTwo
yeah im constantly connecting and disconnecting things so thats impractical for me
Have had this TV in the 65" iteration for a little over a year now, it is truly incredible. My biggest complaint is that the built-in android TV can be a bit slow at times, but if you're pairing with another OTT box then it's all good. The color and depth on this set is remarkable and I never tire of looking at it.

I do not have it wall mounted currently but will in the next few months as we just moved to a new place. No more or less difficult than most other tv's, but the cables are right in the center and will feed downward rather than offset to a side like some other manufacturers. There are some retaining clips on the back as well to keep things organized.

how close to the bottom of the TV are the outlets?
Any word on adding the 77" to the drop? That's what I'm holding out for and they are currently streeting for mid $7k.

I sure hope so. I dont have an ETA right now.
B.Hutch@AKRacing
Will buy from Massdrop when it comes...thanks!
does the TV require a special mount, or does it work with the universe mount
mrbendel
id like to know too
We bought the 55" A1E a year ago for $3,300. It's an pretty amazing TV, no ragrets.
Looks great in my torture chamber.
This TV, according to the advertising images, is the choice of all futuristic serial killers. Concrete, OLED TV's, and torture dungeons.
Hoping for another chance to get in on another drop. Nearly went for the B7, but I think I will hold out for the next drop!
Is this drop for the 2018 version?
lowkey.savage
A1E is 2017 version while AF8 is 2018, the difference being mostly in the way it sits on table. This should not be a probelm if you are deciding on mounting it on wall.
When is this gonna drop...need this tv

Any plans on getting 2018 version? I can't mount my tv but 2017 version has a stand which isn't 90 degree.
77” is the exact same price at BestBuy right now. With BestBuy rewards plus cashback rewards thru your favorite shopping portal that’s probably a better deal...
BadCat
Best buy would make sense if cashback portals > state tax (assuming you have to pay sales tax) Massdrop sold, no tax. All-in and you don't have to wait like 14 weeks to get your cashback rebate
I've been checking this drop daily to see when it will come back. Some good LG ones came and went but I'm holding out for this bad boy.

It's now back!

I missed it twice but third times the charm. It arrived two weeks ago while I was away turkey hunting. I haven’t left my couch since I got home. It’s the most amazing tv I ever saw. It’s pictured is in a class by itself and it’s style is even better at home then in the store. B Hutch is the man. Dont miss it like I did twice. I literally almost hung myself on Easter Sunday when I realized I missed it for the second time. But that depression is all behind me now. It’s glorious.
wanted to share another note, if you guys don't want to go with the soundbar add on or wanted more time to figure out a sound solution, just FYI the OEM audio on the TV is probably the best built in audio i've ever heard for a tv this thin. you can get by, by adding a 100 dollar subwoofer via the headphone jack out and changing the headphone jack mode to "subwoofer" in the android setttings. poor man's audio system that does a very good job for 100 bucks.

Is a hundred $ cost really a concern for someone who is spending $2,000+ on a luxury television 😂
teddy_B
its not a concern, rather a demonstration that the built in audio is actually above expectations...a dollar saved is a dollar earned!
Is is Dolby Atmos compatible?
Question: Are you a "Sony authorized retailer" (so consumers with the sony credit card can get sony points for the purchase)? I don't see you listed on https://www.sony.com/retailers
MysteryMachine
i registered my tv for warranty on Sony's website. came out no issue...registered, and 2 days later got an email from Sony saying warranty has been activated.
Have been waiting to get in on this for the 65"... except now other places have it for less (dell.com for example is giving $500 gift card if you buy for $3100).

What are the expected drop price on lg 55inch and sony A8F? It will come down to Processing speed and aesthetics as long as the price is +/-200 dollars from each other. After reading on rting, it seems like LG comes with no option to disable ads perm. while Sony has no ads.
satseh
Cant give away everything my friend.... will have to wait until Tuesday to see the pricing on the LG.
3,000? It's cheaper at bestbuy hahaha

And we have it for $2100.
Well I’ve been checking the prices on this tv almost weekly for over a year and last week when I went online and into my local BB it was almost ex the same price as the 65” unit is on this site. I actually discussed this very topic with the sales guy and he said this week BB was going to be probadly dropping a lot of their tv prices but he even agreed there was no way they would get even close to Massdrops price.
Ya'll wanna send me one of these for free? I'll write up a real good review about how much better it makes my life.
Mine came broken as well. No fragile stickers on the outside, I’d just assume it had been dropped repeatedly.

Massdropped.
I received my order yesterday, but unfortunately the screen was cracked. What are my options?

Thank you for the suggestion howiemandel, I did. They are now awaiting a response from the vendor I believe.
Hopefully it will be sorted out soon!
got mine yesterday, box was a bit dinged up but there is an external box and the OEM Sony box. Hopefully its ok inside- 2 man job to safely hoist it out.
any chance this can come back for round 2? I missed out and really want the A1E.
I don’t get it. It said I should have had an hour left. Got out the shower and it was gone. I’m sick over this
Audigeorge
This is why I don't shower.

" Got out the shower and it was gone. " Maybe if he had stayed in shower, it would still be there. Well good news, its back (too bad, its slightly outside my budget, plus got myself B7a) otherwise I would had loved to get myself this because I still have sony bravia from 2010 which still works great (thats quality)
What happened. It ended an hour early? I just came on to order and it’s not available. Can I still get a 65” order in?
Audigeorge
don't screw this one up dude, order !
howiemandel
Lol. I already did. I ordered as soon as I saw the alert email. Lol. t for the reminder though
This is going to sound like a silly question, but seeing how it's Sony, a Japanese company... given the shape and weight distribution, is there a recommended way to secure these in earthquake-prone regions? I'm from California.

I'm not concerned about the kickstand collapsing. The base isn't particularly large relative to its height and approximate center of gravity. If it's unsecured, it *will* tip over in a severe earthquake. M.DeLena found instructions for securing it, and I'm going to assume Sony didn't provide them just for kicks.
Thanks!
At first I was, 77-inch? 😃 Then i was ( + $7,000) 😲
OneLove
You can always add few inches of mirrors and pretend its a 77"
If the product is damaged during the shipping will massdrop cover the replacement?

Was thinking of getting going in on the new drop but was also wondering about extended warranty through Sony if you could provide any info if this is possible.
ogmiami136
You will have a fully registered warranty through Sony. All that is required from Sony to be able to extend your warranty services is that you have fully registered the product with them and purchase within a limited amount of time. Normally that time period is within 30 days of purchase but it might be longer.
I bought this tv on the previous drop. Here are a few tips.
Be very careful mounting this thing. The kickstand makes it really heavy. if you do mount it make sure to get a flush wall mount. The arm mounts are strong enough but the tv will pitch forward. i would honestly suggest having it be professionally installed by a bonded installer.
Android tv is pretty great. Netflix and YouTube look great. That said some apps haven’t been updated in a long time. Hulus app is a little old. It doesn’t support profiles and has the old interface. There’s also no FX network app. There are many other network apps.
The he picture is beautiful. The built in audio is very good. You don’t NEED a sound bar for it. That said I did get the suggested 7.1 sound bar and that sounds fantastic. You will need to configure it to the room it’s in. Ceiling height and distance to the couch. It bounces sound from the ceiling.
If you get the sound bar plug any 4K components into the sound bar and let the video pass to the tv. Plugging into the tv will, at best, send 5.1.
