Sony KD-50X80J review
Test scoreShow Context
- 50 inches
Sony TVs are often more expensive than their rivals, and the KD-50X80J 4K TV is priced like a mid-range set despite being the cheapest 50-inch model in Sony’s 2021 line-up. To be fair, its tech specs don’t read like an entry-level TV. Dolby Vision HDR and Dolby Atmos sound processing aren’t things you see on basic models, so our expectations are high for what the X80J can do. Here’s our review.What's included:
