Product information

Sony’s stunning audio-visual showpiece represents a titanic shift in home entertainment. Ushering in eye-popping 4K HDR, this breaks the mould of regular panels by packing its 55” screen with a greater colour palette. This depth-enhancing tech is backed by Sony’s innovative TRILUMONOS backlight, crisp 800Hz motion rate and intuitive Android Smart platform. This even has built-in Playstation Now, letting you play selected PS3 games without needing a console. At the cutting-edge of TV technology, the XD80 is a complete hub that will change the complexion of your living room.

Plumb The Colourful Depths Of HDR

Forays into colour-boosting High Dynamic Range (HDR) have begun, and Sony are one of the forerunners. As members of the newly-founded UHD Alliance, they've delivered top-shelf HDR with a staggering 10-bit colour depth. This means that there are over a billion individual colours to deepen your view and show shades you’ve never seen in home entertainment before. Usually, studios are forced to dilute the colour of their shows and films to fit on our TVs. Now, HDR screens like the XD80 can channel content from studio-to-living room with the same precision and utterly otherworldly hues.

Rich, Ravishing 4K

To respond to screens getting bigger, brands have packed their screens with more pixels. This 55” screen has four times the number of pixels than 1080p HD TVs, delivering stunning realism, natural motion and incredible detail.

Up-Scaling 4K X-Reality PRO

Enhance everything you watch on your Sony Bravia TV with the 4K X-Reality PRO and improved X1 processor. This engine boosts the picture quality of everything from dazzling 1080p Blu-ray Disc™ movies to very low-resolution Web video to 4K. After analysing each pixel and comparing patterns, the system restores detail lost in compression and transmission. The system also reduces noise and reproduces optimum contrast, colour and sharpness. The result is that you experience stunning 4K picture quality with better clarity, for anything you watch.

Delightful TRILUMINOS Display

Sony’s TRILUMINOS Display Technology expands the range of colours of that you see on more conventional LED displays, injecting images with more lustre. The eye-popping picture is treated with deeper reds, more natural greens and sharper blues, giving your shows and films a richer palate. Combined with image-deepening HDR, this tech will make your viewing simply extraordinary.

Crisp Motion With Motionflow XR 800Hz, every image on the screen refreshes at a higher rate than normal. Sports and fast-moving action look noticeably smoother, sharper and more natural, with reduced blur and judder.

Super-Smart Android

Your Smart TV has just got smarter with Android. Developed by Google, you'll be able to enjoy seamless entertainment, intelligent search and the latest apps from the likes of Google Play and Netflix. All the personalisation, intelligence and entertainment of your Smartphone or tablet can be easily viewed on the Sony TV too, taking your viewing experience to the next level. Enjoy built-in Google Cast, which lets you beam content from your smartphone straight to the big screen, Voice Search and hundreds of awesome apps.*

*Use of this TV requires consents to Google Terms of Service and Privacy Policy. Simulated UI. Applications availability varies by country and device

Playstation Now

This fresh feature from Sony lets you play a rich catalogue of PS3 games through your TV. All you need is a Playstation 3 or 4 controller and a subscription to the service (sold separately) to get gaming.

Youview Catch-Up

In addition to a wealth of online entertainment, this set comes with built-in YouView. The seven-day scroll back TV guide brings together catch up TV from across BBC iPlayer, ITV Player, 4oD and Demand 5. You can also enjoy over 70 live TV channels and radio stations for free, such as BBC 1, 2 & 3, ITV, Channel 4, E4, Channel 5, 5 USA, ITV 2 and Dave.**

Super-Slim Silver Slate Design

Sony TVs are renowned for their chic shapes, and the XD80 takes this a step further. The sleek, skinny aluminium frame has convenient cable-management features at the back and through the stand, so you can hide unsightly wires. This way, your set will look beautiful on-and-off.

Its a good price so hot for the deal.. but

Its the wrong time to buy into 4K, there is just too much uncertainty with standards esp around HDR, as i read recently, 4K is just new tyres for you old car. 4K OLED now that is a brand new car.

Why? Because yes, OLEDs are becoming affordable, but they still have their own problems. Poor colour accuracy, uneven backlighting, slow processing tech...

OLEDs have no backlight so how can it be uneven?

Real shame most makers are abandoning 3D as a lot of us still enjoy it and buy the discs. The whole HDR and HDCP 2.2 roll out is a complete f**k up. You're going to have people with recent receivers that are HDMI 2.0 but not HDCP 2.2 compliant wondering why their 4K player isn't working and some TV's don't have the right amount of colours to be true HDR but are still being marketed with HDR stuck on them. Since when was Baldrick appointed head of the electronics industry?

I just can't decide between this or a 1080p OLED.
I thought I was set on the OLED panel but this is making me think twice

1080p OLED is not going to look as good as 4K LED, it's not future proofed either and it'll be a low end OLED panel which will not be as good, will have high latency, black clipping etc etc.

OLED is seen as this amazing thing.. I don't get why, there are good and bad panels like LCD, I mean the iPhone 7 is the highest rated Smartphone screen by displaymate. It's LCD but Apple are putting the effort into to beat OLED with their LCDs, both technologies are coming on.

+ OLED suffers from screen burn like Plasma did and after 2 years if you put your OLED vs a brand new one of the same model, you'll see colours have faded, you wont see that on LCD as they last a lot longer.

It's not the be all end all.... you'd be a fool to buy one in 1080p over this as it probably wont have a wider gamut than this TV which HDR has to meet near 93% DCI-P3.

True, but if you can wait, it might prove to be fruitful, no point investing now if the tech isn't ready and how long in tech terms is a long time? sub £1000.00 OLED I would say before 2020 thats only 3 years away.

Can't seem to get the soundbar to show as free? I know the text states that on the website - but it says to add the promotion - but doesn't exist?

Anyone had any luck?

PS - same price in Currys, but no 5 year warranty and lower spec speakers free. And it's Currys.

web site is not working as its not adding the free sound bar I have contacted them their sorting it out it may take 24hrs

This is a bargain.

Personally I'd wait until the 4K OLED falls into your budget. Once you've seen OLED in the flesh, you won't anything else.

Xbox Scorpio will drive a lot of 4K to sales next year, 2017 is the year to buy.

IPS are better for viewing angles and the VA panels are better for blacks

my apologies, not used to hkud app.

I would beg to disagree. As a Plasma owner I have no intention of upgrading to the 4k hype yet. oled and plasma are best tech for large 1080p screens, plasma are now phased out as they are expensive to run and can't run 4k amd since that's where the market is going, they are dropped. oled is its replacement and after seeing oled vs led I can only concede you would go for led on cost.

How bad was your backlight bleed mate?
#36
Bad mate couldn't believe they could sell a tv for over £1k with that sort of picture! In the day it's not too bad but at night with the lights off it was awful. I was tempted with the Samsung ks9000 as they are only bottom lit but still get bleed with the brightness turned up apparently so going for the lg 950 oled fingers crossed should be ok hopefully!

Is it still average 1000-1300 lines in dynamic resolution, or - as 1000 pounder - rather displays all 2160 vertical lines every frame during motion (I mean original framebuffer, not reworked with Crisp Motion or MotionFlow technologies) ?
