Cant wait to see the prices on these things! :eek:
I am guessing the 65 X930C actual price will be $3,999.

It is anyone guess how Sony will price the 75 X940C...

If Sony is true to form, they will release the MSRP pricing prior to the actual release of the TVs.

The Sony MSRP pricing before release will probably be $4,499 - and then upon release it will go down to $3,999 ($4,299?) on the release date - just like they did last year, and usually do, etc.

I'm not sure which model doesn't have the speakers is it the 900c the really thin one? I don't dislike the speakers but I'd have to do a 55" which I don't want to do. I'm looking for the 65" that includes the new chip, if it works like the demo show it will be terrific. Does anyone know if the new 900c have a stand, I don't wall mount mine so I need a stand for some reason it doesn't show one.

I just hope that Sony with all they do great, improves on the crappy Smart Features and gets a Good remote included. The one with the B series is junk to me. Samsung does whip Sony on these features for sure.

Well the 2015 TVs will now have Android TV with Google Cast, Voice Search & Play Store Apps.

As far as the remote it is pretty much the same as last years One-flick Remote, with Voice, it takes some getting used to...

There is, like last year, a second, more conventional remote.

That tells me nothing, Android with a poor layout and implementation by Sony will be just as bad as it is now.

The One-Flick Remote is pitiful even with Voice. I would expect this out of Hisense not Sony. Conventional Remotes anyone can build.

I love Sony's PQ but they need to get on the ball with the other features they charge us so much for.

Not bashing just stating facts, People are not going to pay premium prices for poor Smart Features that are slow and buggy and a remote that is pitiful to put it lightly.

:eek:

This may come as a shocker, lol... :p

But I, and I will admit I am in the minority here, do not buy my TVs for their "smart functions"... I know, I know... lol

I buy my TVs for their picture quality, etc...

It always annoys me when you read these professional reviews where they state that the TV (or other A/V device) has the best picture and/or best sound they have ever seen/heard - but then dock it one star because it doesn't have Spotify (for example) - when it has every other app known to man, etc...

I know, I know... welcome to 2015... but still...

Not sure that is a "feature"... like you said, that is more a spec... ;)

However, it does say that the 75" is FALD...

• FALD – 75” X940C only

Meaning that the 65" is not...

:p

Guess we'd better be prepared to put aside that money we wanted to buy a nice sportscar with to buy the FALD version of the 75" X940C.
