Sony 77" OLED A9G - Greentow $3699

$3,699.00

While most sites have this for at least $4k plus tax, I first tried submitting an offer on Greentoe for $3k, to which I received a counter offer of $3,699 (no shipping + no tax). Nice deal, but then when I looked on Google shopping I found a couple sites, may be shady, I'm not sure, but TheTvBar.com takes PayPal, so there should be some sort of buyer protection there. Anyone willing to take a bite??

TvBar has it for $2697: https://www.thetvbar.com/ProductD...G&CartID=1
TvTronix (looks even more shady) has it for $2499: https://www.tvtronix.com/Sony-BRAVIA-XBR-A9G-Series-XBR-77A9G-77/p-1189​ [tvtronix.com]


EDIT:
Checked the BBB site for TvBar, looks like a definite scam: https://www.bbb.org/us/de/wilmington/profile/online-retailer/the-tv-bar-inc-0251-92010598/complaints​ [bbb.org]

I didn't even bother to check TvTronix.

Is this a 2020 model that competes with the CX?

Sort of. Seems like Sony is carrying over their high-end TVs for a year. The A9G and the Z9G are carried over from 2019 while the Z8H and the A8H replace last years 'lower' tier 8k and OLED sets.

The Sony XBR77A9GC is a 2019 model where the LG CX is a 2020 set. I have both the LG C9 in a 65 inch size and the 77 inch Sony. Both are great sets. Consumer Reports rated the Sony as the best TV with the CX just behind by one point. I purchased my 77 inch Sony from Greentoe a few months back at $3,999 when all authorized sellers were listing at $4,495. No regrets having used set for the last three months as it is WOW!

Greentoe only works with authorized dealers but you won't know who they are until they accept your bid and you can't disclose to anyone which retailer accepted your bid. Extended warrantys can also be negotiated down there more than any place I know of.

Here are some links for both on rtings.com which is very comprehensive. https://www.rtings.com/tv/reviews/sony/a9g-oled [rtings.com]

If you play games go with LG with a 2.1HDMI but if not Sony has a 2.0 HDMI which I prefer over the LG.

Can't go wrong with either good luck!

It's a carry-over. Sony is basically carrying over their high-end TVs (A9G and Z9G) for 2020 and replacing the "lower" top TVs (A8G to A8H, ?? to Z8H)

When I bought my A9Gthrough Greentoe it came from BC which is an authorized seller so I had no worries.
