And, at $4999.99, it’s also one of their most expensive.
But this money is put to good use.

Most Sony TVs are packed with software features…
But what about its hardware?
To be more specific, how does the weight of a Sony TV stack up against its competition?
Let’s start with one of Sony’s more affordable options:
At $999, the X80CJ won’t break your wallet compared to other TVs in this segment. However, make no mistake, this TV is still full of features like:
- HDR and Dolby Vision.
- Apple AirPlay compatible.
- MotionFlow XR: To smoothen motion sequences.
