'ZDNET Recommends': What exactly does it mean?

ZDNET's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping. We gather data from the best available sources, including vendor and retailer listings as well as other relevant and independent reviews sites. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the products and services we’re assessing.

When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNET nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.

ZDNET's editorial team writes on behalf of you, our reader. Our goal is to deliver the most accurate information and the most knowledgeable advice possible in order to help you make smarter buying decisions on tech gear and a wide array of products and services. Our editors thoroughly review and fact-check every article to ensure that our content meets the highest standards. If we have made an error or published misleading information, we will correct or clarify the article. If you see inaccuracies in our content, please report the mistake via this form.

At 77-inches, this Sony A80J 77-inch TV is one of the largest, most gorgeous 4K televisions you can buy. This television features capabilities suitable for any situation whether it be watching sports, movies, or even gaming. 

While featuring Google TV, Amazon's Alexa, and a cognitive processor, Sony truly puts the "smart" in this TV. But, Sony didn't want to stop with just "smart." It wanted to create an industry-leading TV with both its XR Trilminos Pro and XR OLED Contrast technologies -- to produce vivid colors for a perfect viewing experience no matter what you are watching.  

Whether you plan on mounting this Sony TV on the wall, putting it on a TV stand, or raising it above a sound bar, the stand made for this TV is perfect for you. But if you don't want to use a sound bar; don't worry. Sony features a screen that doubles as a speaker so that the sounds you hear are perfectly aligned with the objects you see on the screen. There are no limits to the ways you can enjoy yourself with this unit.
