Major Amazon Black Friday discounts on Sony’s X800D 43 and 49 inch 4K HDR TVs
Stephan Jukic – November 23, 2016
Sony’s entire line of 2016 4K HDR TVs has shown itself to be excellent or at least very good at delivering top-shelf picture performance on almost all counts. These include color performance (always superb in Sony TVs in our experience) black levels, motion handling (also usually superb in Sony TVs) and high quality future-proofing. This assessment applies to Sony’s top-shelf Z9D and X930D/X940D TVs as much as it applies to the company’s mid-range and budget 4K TVs in our experience and we thus highly recommend most of these models.
This is why the latest Black Friday offering from Amazon.com for Sony’s particularly excellent budget X800D 4K TVs is something we highly recommend for a number of reasons.
These two models, one sized at 43 inch and one sized at 49 inches both deliver some truly great display performance specs and come with the added benefit of full high dynamic range display specs, which include excellent black level performance, the stunning vibrancy of wide color gamut and 10-bit color for HDR and a range of motion handling and upscaling specs that are almost uniformly great. The X800D models also offer full HDR-ready connectivity and all include the complete range of HDCP 2.2, HEVC, HDR10 and VP9 standards needed for maximum access to the latest sources of 4K and ultra HD HDR content.
We’ve reviewed the X800D Sony models and our previous assessment of these TVs as exceptionally good models for their low price still holds true.
Now, with Amazon’s Black Friday pricing, which is already in effect as a pre-Black Friday deal, we love the X800D TVs even more because they’ve gotten a whole lot cheaper than they were at their regular prices. Amazon is selling the 49 inch model with IPS display for just $648 and the 43 inch VA Display model for just $598.00. These are serious discounts indeed considering that these TVs previously sold for $698 for the 43 inch X800D and $798 for the 49 inch model.
Here are some additional specs for the XBRX800D TVs, we highly recommend these TVs for consumers who want to stick to a tight budget but would like some premium performance in their 4K HDR TV.
