You may have missed Sony’s OLED Bravia XR A80K line, because let’s be honest, television naming conventions are confusing and there are far too many similar models. This panel is noteworthy, however, because it bundles in a slew of PS5 exclusive gaming features, including Auto HDR Tone Mapping (which claims to improve picture quality) and Auto Genre Switching (which aims to ensure you’re always in the right mode for whatever you’re doing with your console). That’s some classic Sony synergy at play, eh?
Anyway, if you’re in the market for a new panel, the 55” version of this screen is currently 35 per cent off on Amazon, saving you an eye-opening $700. That brings the overall price down from $1,999 to $1,298. You can also get savings on the 65” and 77” options, but they’re unfortunately not quite as big. Still, we’ve linked them all up below:

In terms of reviews, this screen does come pretty highly rated. As respected hardware site Tom’s Guide notes, while the panel isn’t perfect, it packs some pretty great picture quality and some very robust audio. The caveat, ironically, is that its input lag is a little on the high side, meaning it’s not exactly ideal for those twitchy, quick reaction competitive games.

The real geniuses are the people who use their PSVR as a TV.
Or psychopaths, both work.
Need a 32” version with the same features for under $300 to replace my 20 year old Bravia currently in the bedroom 😅. If you go straight to Sony’s site you see a list of 10 different models that seem to have similar features and similar prices with basically no obvious distinction between them. Super unhelpful.

Cue PS5 Pro Slim in 5..4..3.2.
Not exactly the biggest fan of automated features, I always seem to turn them off when I can, but I bet it's a nice TV.
id really want this tv if i didn't get used to playing games on a monitor. got my ps5 hooked up to a gaming monitor, its pretty nice, so idk if i could go back. $ony has the inzone monitor but its god damn expensive
Good deal but the a90k is newer and better
Well, these are the best tellies at that price for PS5, they are 120Hz 4K, ALLM, VRR, capable... a monitor "for the discerning players" with the same specifications is a bit dearer, and you risk that it is not compatible with PS5, so, avoid regrets and get one of these, better if you've got an Apple TV 4K, it does shines with this telly.
We have the 65" version of this.
The sound that it puts out is incredible. In fact it's so good that I ended up selling my old sound bar that I had with the previous TV (also a Sony) because it simply wasn't needed anymore
I would like to see the 42 inch TVs with these great options.
The TV I would really like is the Sony XR-55A95K, but I'm not paying £2199 for a TV unless it comes with a PS5, PSVR2 and a holiday bundled in.
Literally just got a Sony Bravia telly this weekend but got a good price. Sound is amazing and got it just in time to finish God of War: Ragnorok.
Honestly better with a monitor for gaming, especially since 1440ip has been added
My last two tellys have been a Sony, and my next one will definitely be one. They have been really reliable and my old one is still going at my parents. Which is more than I can say for some of the other models I've had over the years.
Bought an 80K in december as I was long over due an upgrade from old Sony I had for years. Absolutely love this TV, gaming is superb and does 40fps at a set refresh rate. The TV upscaling is so clever and the sound is amazing, even ditched my sound bar.
Only thing that really 'disappoints' me is that these features are 'locked' on Sony Playstation to Sony TV's where as these features are built in to other TV's and 'work' on Xbox or PC for example.
It doesn't matter if you buy a Samsung or LG TV for example, those features are ALL available on an Xbox regardless but you have to buy a Sony TV to unlock them on a Sony PS5.
This vanished from Amazon in hours 😂
LOL i already have the A80J model I don't need another OLED anytime soon 🙄🙄
@Rudy_Manchego I agree the in built sound in these TVs are surprisingly good but I already have a good audio setup for that
Its a great tv, I got this one 5 months ago. No regrets.
I’ve got a Bravia X90K 55inch. Not OLED, but it is a multi zone LED so that’s not bad.
I had to buy it in a rush back in November because my TCL took a fat dump on itself.
It had the right price tag. I wanted an OLED (the LG C2) but the Bravia was 200 bucks cheaper and had the feature set I demanded (VRR, 120hz, HDMI 2.1, ALLM, etc.) so I saved the money.
Maybe I’ll get an OLED in six more years lol.
I agree. My X90K’s sound is shockingly good for what it is.
I love that it has a feature to act as a “booster” center sound channel for surround sound set ups. That’s how I use it now.
No thanks! I'm perfectly content with my 65 inch Samsung 4K QLED TV.
The wifi in sony tvs usually bad keep disconnecting from Internet
TV screens are really good now. It’s good that they cut out all the hokum and just give you pure screen too although when watching old movies I attach a “old school frame” in faux walnut for effect.
@OrtadragoonX how do you do that? i have a separate speaker but there is no option to use the tv speakers and my external speakers at the same time?
