'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.
The Sony A80J is arguably one of the best-priced OLED models on the market as of right now. With XR OLED Contrast and XR TRILUMINOS PRO color, it features a bright, clear, and simply gorgeous life-like picture. All pictures will be in 4K HD -- and for older content, it automatically upscales.
Because it's a smart TV, you'll get the integrated Google TV experience, meaning that you can log into your apps and not worry about logging into them again. The Google Hub offers the ability to pull up your favorite shows and movies without having to enter the apps. You can also use Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa voice commands to pull up your favorite shows without searching for them.
For gamers, it's also going to have what you need to take your gaming to the next level. With 120fps and input lag as low as 8.5ms, you'll be able to play your games in 4K HDR with clear picture and sans lag.
At $999, again -- this is the lowest price we've seen on this particular model. We've even named it one of our picks for best 55-inch TV models because of the features the A80J offers. You can add it to your cart today and save $900.
Otherwise, if you still want to see other options, we recommend heading over to our picks for Cyber Monday TV deals. However, if this TV is an intended gift, we recommend heading over to our Holiday Gift Guide hub for TVs, where you can check out our recommendations for gifting this holiday season.
