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.

Perfect partners

With TVs getting slimmer and built-in speakers getting smaller, choosing the right sound system is more important than ever. Soundbars enhance your TV’s sound quality and add that extra audio punch to all your movies, games and TV programmes. More affordable and easier to set up than a full size speaker system, they don’t compromise on quality either.

Take a look at our full range of soundbars.

So much better than the Samsung and lg. Sony has very good picture quality. I have last year's model with built in android operating system. Did lots of research for couple of months before buying. Sony came on top for me.

I'd say the 7000 is better, meets UHD premium whereas this wouldn't.

pay a little extra and get the Hisense 55M7000. this Sony does not have a 10bit panel, so the HDR is non existent.

This place is obsessed with 10 bit panels and I suspect most people on here get their knowledge from What Hi-Fi or just reading other posts on here. I have an 8 bit non HDR LG TV and it still looks great with Sky Q UHD movies. Technology always moves fast, buy 10 bit today, wish you'd bought OLED tomorrow etc.

Tv may look great but with games consoles coming out with HDR technology, people would want to get the most out of them

I agree but there is always a new thing to get. Sooner or later you have to find your price point and bite. I am just saying that although two years on my 2014 4K TV doesn't compare well against the current crop I have no regrets and can't fault the picture at all.

Well when a TV that has better panel technology than this at the same price, why would you not go with the better one? Remove the badge and read the spec. Hisense bought all of Sharps manufacturing factories and are undercutting the big brands.

People wanting to future proof purchases doesn't seem strange to me.

Is this not 10bit? Says so in the description

Says here it is 10 bit

The color reproduction is also very good thanks to the wide color gamut and the very good 10 bit panel.


http://uk.rtings.com/tv/reviews/sony/x800d

x800d is the US equivalent of the xd80.

And again later on in the review:

Update 09/08/2016: Our original test was showing an incorrect color depth of 8 bit due to some incorrect drivers on our system, but after some correction to our test apparatus, we tested again the color depth and we can confirm that the Sony X800D does in fact have an 10 bit panel.

I'd say the 7000 is better, meets UHD premium whereas this wouldn't.

This and other Sony's do meet UHD certification, Sony has for some reason to choose NOT to use that branding and go with their own.

Wouldn't meet UHD Premium, peak brightness isn't high enough, you'll need to go for their top end range to get that.


Its still a great set and if my max budget was £800 and I couldn't wait any longer it would be the one I choose, but the 7000 is better imo and not a lot more.

excellent!! cheers!!

My one arrived today. It's great and a lot better than the Philips box I sent back last month. Android TV and the remote are responsive and even standard def looks passable.

Sorry to be rude, but you have no idea how 10bit/HDR work. HDR pulls out the shadows, hi-lights, etc to give the image a greater depth of colours and range. 10bit bit on the other hand does not increase the hi and low range at all, it add more steps of colour between the already existing shades of colour, nothing to do with increased range! Say you have a image of a blue sky, the 10bit panel will have a smoother blue gradient as it has more steps of colour. Only professional grade monitors with hi-res images really need a 10bit panel, you will never notice the difference on a tv when watching freeview/internet streaming. Adding 10bit to TVs in mainly marketing.
