  • Worth for money
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Yokee - December 23, 2021

    Had LG 55 inch TV for last 2 years. Have not faced any issues till it blacked out suddenly a day. Bought this Sony x80j Tv 55 inch TV on Black Friday deal for 549$. Original cost was 799$. Initially faced issue in setting up. Faced issue with WiFi connectivity. Took almost 2 hrs to figure out the resolution. Then had issue with streaming apps like Disney plus and Amazon prime video. After multiple try with uninstall and installing. It worked out. Recently Pluto TV added live TV for Sony Android TV's. It works great. Pros: Picture quality Sound quality Cons: Initially TV Setup Internet connectivity Initial Streaming apps setup Once the setup is done. All goes good. Definitely recommend for a friend

  • Built in Google TV
    Reviewed by Vik 13 - May 1, 2021

    [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] Owning many Sony products in the past, I knew this would be a great TV, the best part is that it has screen mirroring and Google TV built in, with many apps like HULU, Disney, Netflix, YouTube and etc... The remote control is easy to use and has a voice feature to ask google any question or launch apps. Screen is very bright and has excellent 4K picture quality. The TV was ready to use right out of the box, easy as just putting in the legs and power cord and turn it on. I highly recommend this TV if your in the market for a new one.

  • Can't go wrong with Sony. X80J.
    Verified BuyerReviewed by Rich - January 11, 2022

    So after 15 years I finally decided to upgrade my current Samsung 32" LCD to the 55" Sony X80J cuz after all, my current Samsung's still working fine. I did quite a research and finally decided this model is best suited for my budget and my expectations. This is a great TV for a small apartment. The color is vibrant and the speaker is loud enough for my listening. Setup was a little tedious with Google Home app cuz I had to call Google customer service and they were great in assisting me. The Google assistant on the remote is Best! Got it at a very good deal and I truly recommend this 2021 Sony entry level smart tv.

  • 3 weeks on and still learning how to drive it!
    Reviewed by TietjenUK - December 6, 2021

    Wife wasn't happy to discover upon arrival iPlayer is not included so uses the TV in another room for that. 3 weeks after delivery I'm still trying to work out all the different controls regarding when and when not to use Google TV. Control buttons seem to do different things depending on any other buttons you might have pressed. Being partially deaf, I'm very pleased with the sound but NOT when the volume suddenly goes at full blast unexpectedly! I was very glad to find the TV fitted onto the movable wall-bracket our old TV was on, so we're still able to spin the thing around depending on where we happen to be sitting at the time (see photos). I'm sure I'll get used to the TV someday but it's so much easier to operate my computer that I tend to use THAT more when I'm on my own.

  • Bad Black Uniformity
    Verified BuyerReviewed by David - September 17, 2021

    Very disappointed in this TV, the black isn't just not black, it unevenly not black. There was a dead pixel. The sound with just the TV speakers in atrocious, you must have a sound bar. I've included pictures of this TV displaying an all black youtube video and a picture of the 11 year old Vizio that was half the price this tv was supposed to replace showing the same video so you can see the difference in not only the darkness of the black but also a little of the uneveness. It's worse in person.
