I have been staring at the HX800 for about 3 weeks now and just about bought one today in Best Buy. The 3D bundles pretty much decided the value of the tv for me but I thought I would take a look over at AVS to see if the 800 was worth it and I am glad I did now. I started reading about the hx810 and so far it seems amazing.
So I called Sony Style to check in on the %20 off discount and learned a few things.
1-Not all Sony reps can give the %20 discount. I guess it is determined on how the rep sets up the the way they make money (commission?)
2-You cannot get the 3D starter kit and the %20 off, at least not with the rep I spoke with.
3-I got away with getting only 4 accessories but the deal is for purchasing 5. I just chose the items that were in the bundle (2 glasses, Alice movie, 3D transmitter). I would just add on a hdmi cable like someone else recommended if they forced me to.
3D starter kit is $400
20% off the TV alone is $580
So in the end you get $180 over the 3d starter bundle if you use the %20 off.
Not only do you save more by using the %20 off as compared to the bundle but the %20 off extends to CERTAIN accessories. The HDMI cable counted and she wasnt sure if the glasses counted or not. I did not want her to run everything through checkout just to check on a coupon.
I will be ordering mine tomorrow when she calls back
I was going down the highway with my wallet in trunk or else I would have bought it tonight.
