    That's interesting. I just ordered a 83" C1 at a great price (here in Europe). 3000€ instead of 4600€ for the 83" C2.

    That's less than I paid more than 15 years ago for my first flat screen TV, a 46" FullHD Sony (which I still use in a bedroom with Chromecast).

    I have a slightly older Sony OLED TV and have never had a moment's problem with the Wifi. Never had to reset it or anything.

    I have the previous A8H model and I never had any problems with the wi-fi. I use a wired connection now

    So everyone who bought this model is happy with it? I see some good deals out there now on this model.

    I sure am!!!!:righton:
    I had a ISF calibrated Pioneer KRP 500M reference Plasma panel for 9 years which I loved.
    It was this Sony that ended it.:agree::D

    VERY happy, and ours the older A8H, which is 1.5-2 years old now. There are some great deals on the Sony OLED televisions, for sure. Snap it up. Doesn't get much better, imho.

    Count me among the satisfied. Great TV. Unless you have a room with too much brightness, you should be thrilled with this TV. Unless gaimng is your main prioriy, then the LG C1 would have a slight edge. Check out all the rave reviews on YouTube.

    The Samsung S95B is also worth a look at in this price point.

    Yes. They make OLED with Quantum Dots (different from how LG does OLED) and also sell their panels to Sony (A95K).

    Question:
    Does it matter if the tv has a heatsink.
    The A80k does not
    The A80j does

    Not completely. However the heat sink allows for a residual image to fade out quicker than one without a heat sink thus a little better guard against burn in and/or allows the manufacturer to drive the panel a little brighter if they choose too or not.

    neither has a heat sink. You have to step up to the A90 to get a heat sink. Not worth the significant price increase for a marginally better TV.
