There are huge differences between the a80j and a90j, isn't there? The reason for this is that prices vary greatly. In terms of its overall rating, how would you rate the A80J?

A backlit remote is included with the 77" A80J?

This is not the case. The A80J is completely compatible with this memory, but you can purchase it separately from Sony for about $80. My approach was the same as that. Part number RMF- is what the control part is called Please reach out to me if you'd like to purchase TX621U.

Sony is why I keep coming back to them? I really like what they do

Having been looking for a new 65" panel for some time, I have finally settled on the model below. How can we explain this? I had a Samsung 4k television that went out of warranty less than a year after it was bought. In addition, since the auto-off feature on my nearly brand new 32" Samsung curved monitor was no longer working, I had pretty much written Samsung off for a potential source of my next I hope you have a good ride. My current TV is a dim, old, and pretty disenchanted piece of kit, so this beautiful piece of kit came along at CES right in time for me to consider the new OLED displays. It is a book I am glad I picked I can't use this set because it damages As you are weighing this (A80J) against the other (and more expensive) A90J, I can tell you it is a personal choice. In coming into this from a television that has a decent quality (at least initially), I compare it to one that already has a decent picture. For someone who went from a 4K Sammy to this Sony, if your ego is attached to your television, then you should probably spend the extra money on the A90J. While I'm not dogging the A90J in any way (far from it), it seems to be quite a powerful set, from what I've read. The problem is. When it comes to deciding whether or not to buy a TV, now that I have a few titles on my A80J, I can honestly say, give me the A80J, and I will use the money I save to purchase 30 or 40 AAA 4K titles. In which direction should we start? Since everyone knows what their own monitor looks like, I took very few photos. I think it's foolish to think you can distinguish the quality of an image by looking at your own monitor. I can't get enough of this picture. It makes me literally smile. I only took one picture of this television to illustrate how amazing the viewing angle is. That's not what I mean, but it's the best viewing angle I've ever seen on a TV. Taking this photo, I held it at its steepest angle in relation to the screen so you would not be able to tell you were looking at a screen even though I was. In a room where there are various seating arrangements, what can you do? What about those who complain that they can't see the set well from There is no way you can go wrong with This view has such a steep angle that it's impossible to take it in. I am in awe That color saturation in this image is incredible. That is jaw-droppingly sharp. It is far superior to what is available on most televisions in terms of audio quality. To qualify this statement, I would like to mention that we have a Yamaha RX-1000 in our home theater system An entire suite of Klipsch speakers, including dual 12" models, is powered by a V681. Subwoofers with two drivers. As such, I won't recommend that you overlook the speakers for your home theater. It's not a big deal. Given the limit of speakers on a TV, you're not going to hear anything spectacular. Let me tell you what I want to Do you have a sound bar in case you don't do "home theater," but you are one of those people who doesn't like to watch TV at home? This set doesn't need a sound bar, so you can use it without one. There is quite a bit of good sound in the game, and it'll be fine for those who are not accustomed to THX (or better) surround sound is the standard for me, so the speakers can't be the source of my problems There will be a gap in my home theater setup until I can connect all the devices to my Nevertheless, it is quite a feat for a built-in audio system, and I wanted to evaluate all of it before going full Yamaha. It is none other than the Sony UPB-420 that I used for this test I have a few 4k titles suitable for a set such as this and an X800 to match (a perfect match, if there ever was one). I tested this with the following titles There are three types of Star As seen in the film "The Last Jedi" Thor *Ragnarok* The Avengers Spiderman in Endgame My first experience with 4k was with Into the Spiderverse
And I wanted to see how Star Trek The Next Generation looks in 4k. As a result of being upconverted, Into Darkness fared well. It is a fact that I will share. There were moments when I felt like I was experiencing many of these movies for the first time. From the opening credits of Star Wars, which looked like you could see every single star against the darkness of space, to watching JJ Abraham's Star Trek in all its glory, the picture quality is stunning. How did I use my TV before this one? The thing I forgot seems to have slipped my mind. Here are a few things I found in the menu worth noting. For starters, the developers were kind enough to provide an option to remove all the factory demo files. It sure is nice to be able to delete stuff like that. Usually they won't let you do that. It's actually an option you've got with Sony. I commend you. In addition, there are many picture modes on the system, including "Cinema" and "Game", but of those, "Vivid" stands out as the most appealing. As it sounds, it looks just like it does. I would think it is reasonable to consider a professional tune and calibration if you are spending $3k on a TV. It is probably money well spent to ensure that your TV is performing at its best. Although I may be a novice, the few changes I made in the settings have led to fantastic results, even with "amateur calibration". Additionally, it appears to help reduce or eliminate screen ghosting by adding a "screen refresh" option to the settings. Actually, this is quite nice, and I intend to run this process a few times a month to maintain the OLED panel as a kind of "oil change" / "preventative maintenance". There is nothing wrong with taking good care of your TV! Apart from that, unlike most sets, which offer 2 options, the "legs" or "wall mount", you can install the legs for this set in three different ways, depending on how you wish to install them. It is always a good thing to be flexible. It was even tempting to try some gaming, but, honestly, I can't reach the full potential of a PlayStation 4 with a "mere" Pro model. With Gran Turismo Sport, you can experience sport at its best. Although, admittedly, this fantastic set has become a cult classic I was motivated to upgrade to the PS5 because of the PS4. Due to the fact that I own both a Playseat and a Logitech G29 racing wheel, I will be the first to play Gran Turismo 7 when it rolls out in 2020, and I WANT TO PLAY IT ON THIS TV! It was yesterday. You could sure do well with some PS5s hitting the market, Sony. There is no other way to play this game on In the background, it is whispering "PS5" into my ear as I write. Keep your mouth shut. We're getting closer to it. I am however willing to trade in my PS4 for this TV, so that I can take full advantage of what this TV has to offer. Since I am not from a cheap little TV, I know where I'm coming from. I therefore think that I can give a fair opinion on the question of "Is the A90J worth the cost difference over the A80J?". There is nothing there for me to see. My A80J does not have 4k capabilities, so I would rather put the money saved towards 4k titles. The money you save on this over the A90J will be enough to equip you with dozens of 4K titles AND a UBP blu-ray player There is a version 2 of the X800. There's no question about it. There is only one way I can say, "Oh, yeah, A90J!". The "right way" to spend your money would be if you have a room full of money and a wheel barrow. My 4K Sammy is circling this set in CIRCLES. I like the way it looks. There is a lot of vivid detail in this. I like how sharp it is. I find it incredible. It's a viewing angle out of this world, and the contrast is amazing. It is the contrast that makes me want to talk about contrast with those who do not wish to speak with me ABOUT contrast. I have never seen blacker blacks nor brighter whites than these. In the next few weeks, I will re-apply It was a pleasure to watch a lot of my old favorites on this quality device. I've got Dr. Strange, Alien, and some Close Encounters of the Third Kind on my list of what to watch. This TV is literally making me dig through my collection, old and new, to enjoy them in their original Aren't those the things that matter in the end? When it comes to buying a new TV, and OLED is what you desire, you cannot go wrong with this model. There is no way to do it. I have to say that Sony really nailed this one. The year 2021 is going to be great for new TVs. *If you look closely, what you see is one of the best sets available.

Last but not least, I hope my experience with the A80J demonstrates what a fantastic set this really.

The picture is beautiful, but thanks for not taking anything from my Roku

It is quite a difference between this TV and my 2 year old 4K LCD TV in terms of picture quality. Compared to my old screen, this one looks more beautiful in just about every respect. Even my wife and kids who rarely notice picture quality (or sound quality) nuances instantly commented on how great the picture looked (my daughter even said "I had no idea I was missing something!"). The picture quality is excellent and I could sing its praises all day long. There is no difference between the thickness of the screen and that of my phone (may even be thinner). However, the cabinet on the back of the screen is still a few inches deep, so the screen is held at a minimum a few inches from the wall, which undermines the ultra-thinness of the cabinet on the back of the screen This is thin-sliced It is beneficial to view on a screen. This kind of liability kind of becomes problematic at this point. How can we explain this? The screen is now so thin, you have to be careful hanging the TV on a wall because you don't want to crack it, and since there is essentially no bezel and the cabinet is in the middle of the back of the screen, it's hard to hold on to anything. As much as possible, I would like to have the cabinet cover the entire back side of the TV like a normal LCD screen does, and if it meant they could spread the contents of the cabinet a bit more and make it a fraction of an inch thinner, then fantastic. There is a much better sound quality than the TV it replaces, but it still falls short of what you would expect from a TV speaker. Most importantly, this TV sounds quite good even if you do not intend to use its speakers, but unless you can live without them, then you won't use them either. It has been said that the screen is Although I'm not sure how they did it, there is a pretty good match in terms of spacial positioning While it appears to be a Dolby Atmos screen, I was unable to get my Roku to go into Atmos mode, as the set was not compatible with the technology. The video looks amazing on my TV, Roku, or with my connection not sure if it has anything to do with the TV or Roku. Atmos may add something to this TV, but I'm not sure. * Speaking of Roku, this TV has built-in Google TV. Despite not even having tried Roku yet, I must admit that I'm a bit of a fan. I must confess, however, that I'm not too thrilled about the Google TV platform myself. That's fine, but I won't use it because the parts of Roku that it does I can do with Roku, but not the reverse. When I first set this up, I originally did not enable any of the smart features now I wish I had! Just want it to be a regular TV that shows the contents of my Roku channel. quite turned off at first that I had to accept a bunch of privacy policies and other licensing nonsense before I could use the TV just like normal. You're looking at a bunch of pixels here, guys -- What should I do if I can't accept Google's privacy policy - In the current state of things, Google has nothing to do with this. As soon as the initial set-up is complete Now that the Google TV features have been enabled, I proceeded to do so. It was quite frustrating because I wanted YouTube to be set up under my wife's account (since most of this TV was going to be used by her), but the Google Home app gave me no option. decided I should add her as an admin in my home (I hadn't done this yet, because she seldom wants anything to do with managing the network or smart devices. To make it work, she just wants to press a button). The moment she was added to the list, I wanted to delete Firstly, I was able to complete the set-up, but then it refused to move on to the part where it asked if I wanted to set up the TV (something about the ability Having futzed for at least 20 minutes, I did a factory reset and gave it another try. As a result, the part where the TV asks you a question and you answer it with your remote control went pretty quickly and smoothly. Even if I needed to begin setting it up under my account, I had the option to An annoyance. Then a ton of channels were added to my list that I had no interest in and I had to unsubscribe from all of them one by one The first. Again, I am annoyed. There was no sign of The Great Courses Plus, one of the channels I did want. When I tried to add it to Google TV from the Play Store, it was not available. I have it for my Android phone, but not for my TV, which means that just because the TV is running a flavor of Android does not mean that you can I note this with thanks. I can access TV shows, movies, music, and a few other big names through my TV, but I'll still need my Roku hooked up to access everything I want. If I do this, what is the point of It's just a plain TV again and I don't mind that at all. I disconnected it from my network and am again just using it as a plain TV. I will add the following as a separate note Again, I don't care much for the texture on the back of the remote, but it isn't a deal-breaker for me. Because I am using an additional Roku device, I seldom need the TV remote control, so it is no big deal. The following are the main features of the picture I rate the sound quality as a 10/10. On a scale of 1 to 10, I give a TV a 9. Comparatively, smart features score 3/10*in comparison to an external system The ease of installation and setup is a 8/10 I give this a 8/10Br>Other I'm not sure how to say this in English The third is that when just using the TV as is, acceptance of privacy policy is required There is a 5-point scale for the irritating texture on the back of the remote control.

The pictures are absolutely stunning

I've owned OLED televisions in the past, but this is the best I've It is sure that technology will change that in a couple years, but to anyone on the fence about which current OLED screen to buy, this is your best bet. When comparing the 77" size against the price, and the features, this is an excellent deal. It is fantastic to own a Sony A80J. If you get one and a PlayStation 5 you will not have to leave your living room ever I was extremely happy with the service from Amazon. The shipping was fast and the product quality was excellent.

I did lots of research before I hit the buy button, and I am extremely pleased with the result.
