    The flaps will not fully close on 10″ damper. Flaps rub against cylinder wall. For horizontal mount, flap stem must be vertical, as a result; flaps slide down vertical stem rubbing against cylinder wall. A fix cut a notch out of washer (u shape) place at bottom of stem to prevent flaps from rubbing. I do not recommend purchasing this product.

    Such a great TV. It took a while to learn the setup of menus, various approaches to channels and menus. Loved the intuitive remote.

    I owned a 4k Epson 3800 projector which I paid about the same price for. I returned the Epson because it suffered uniform focus issues and refused to accept that for the price.I was extremely hesitant buying another expensive projector nearly a year later now, especially when most reviewers would argue the Epson is just objectively better than this.I’m glad to say I absolutely love this projector so far! I was worried about rainbow effect with a DLP vs a 3 LCD like the Epson but I can say it’s a non issue for me with this. I can only barely see the rainbow if I really dart my eyes, not at all during normal viewing.It’s extremely bright and sharp! The auto focus works excellently but perhaps the auto keystone not so much. It refused to fit into my projector screen on its own and I had to manually adjust.Adjusting the image on all corners inwards to make it smaller allowed me to fit the screen with the projector farther away, but there is a light bleed around the screen if you do this so I don’t recommend it. You really just need to position this the proper distance from your screen to fit it vs trying to adjust it in. I can understand this making some positioning difficult depending on your scenario.I understand what people are saying regarding the remote as well. There are two different menus, one is the android TV menu and the other is the actual projectors menu. Theres apparently no way to access the projector menu from the remote and so far seems like you have to press the settings button on the projector itself.The sound was too quiet until I realized again that the volume on the remote was separate from the volume on the device. Again this is a little confusing. I just set the volume on the projector to max and use the remote from there and I’m fine.The app seems extremely basic but the touch control inside it is very innovative and intuitive. Very impressed there.While I have noted a few less than ideal things about this projector I still highly recommend it. Excellent picture and brightness in a small portable device. I might choose something else for a permanent placement inside a dedicated theater room but otherwise this is amazing.Just know what you want! This isn’t a gaming projector and the image quality and latency CAN be beat for the price but your sacrificing many other excellent aspects that this projector does bring to the table.For me, it’s a keeper. I was dissatisfied with the Epson 3800 which people would claim is superior.

    The picture quality is excelent; definitly hard to beat oled. I watched the original 1973 Westworld movie and the TV made it look great (too bad it couldn’t improve plot). I’ve had problems with the OS where apps stop working requiring some combination of deleting the app data and/or restarting the TV; very frustrating. This has already happened a few times in less than a week. Roku TVs have been much more reliable. Hopefully a future OTA firmware update will help. I may just install a Roku if problems continue; sorry Sony/Google.Update 8-1-2022: Dropping to 4⭐ due to buggy OS. Wired network stopped working today… restarted TV and it’s working again. Basicaly theres been something every few days that requires the TV to be restarted via the system menu to fix.Update 8-19-2022: Things are better after last firmware update. Leaving at 4⭐ because the OS should be easier to use and I don’t have a lot of confidence in it not having another bug in a later update. At least I’m still happy with the picture.Update 9-30-2022: TV has only required one restart to fix network issue. It’s hard wired so I’m blaming the OS; everything else in the house was working. The TV interface continues to disappoint due to the number of clicks to do anything. I’m also getting tired of seeing all of recomended shows to watch served up from google. Plugging in a Roku is still an option.

    Short and sweet, everything works as expected and advertised. The picture quality is superb, and I haven’t felt the need to do a lot of tweaking, much less calibration, to get it there (as I have in the past on other TV’s). The overall look of the TV is very minimalistic, as the edge of the screen and the stand nearly disappear. Speaking of the stand, it’s very stable while being low profile, and the multiple installation methods to modify the height, while I haven’t needed them, are a useful feature that I’m sure many will appreciate. I can’t speak to the internal speakers as I don’t use them, but I can say the arc features work very well and very seamlessly. I can just turn on the Apple TV, and the TV and reciever both turn on and move to their correct inputs. Likewise, I can turn on the TV, and the same adjustments are made. I find I seldom need to adjust the TV or receiver. Just turn on the source and go. I’ve had issues with other TV’s where arc either didn’t do all I needed or at times, was fighting what I was trying to do. None of that with this TV. It does what you expect and need from arc pretty flawlessly.Now for all of the look and features, this TV is all about the picture, and it is awesome! I’m sure a tester could find some tiny flaw somewhere, but as a normal user with pretty big expectations, it delivers. I think you’d have to be looking for something to ding this TV on when it comes to picture quality, and even then, you’d probably need a pointer in the right direction to find it still. I’m sure there are likes and dislikes to be had on the smart tv features and the OS, but it’s the picture that matters the most, and on that count, this Sony truly delivers! Oh, and set your Apple TV to use Dolby Vision and….. just wow!If you wonder about the true blacks of OLED, it’s mostly what you don’t notice that is the real story. None of the blooming or banding in dark scenes. Every once in a while, the depth of the black will pop out and make you notice, but most of the time, it’s more subtle and, like everything with the picture quality on this TV, just “right”. Nothing is drawing your attention so much as it all just looks natural and right, so your brain just moves on without notice.I can’t say this is the best “deal” for a TV, or even for an OLED (I haven’t tried them all to say the least). What I can say is the picture is spectacular, and I don’t think you’ll be at all disappointed.

    First of all: you HAVE to have HDMI 2.1 cables or some things won’t work. Setting up is a steep learning curve — manual doesn’t mention that the setup menu of your AVR only appears when video is not in play (disconnect all outside cables first except the AVR connection to HDMI port 3 and use that port for the menu). For some reason it is not an Android system like previous BRAVIAs, but Google Play, yet the main apps are available, so there’s not much difference, although app menus seem a little slower to appear — due to larger bandwidth, I suspect . Picture is glorious! Took me a few days to setup, including a Geek Squad team visit and a morning on the phone talking to support from the Denon team (for my AVR setup; it is new, too). I upgraded to this system for the sound — eARC finally works, yay, with an updated AVR and HDMI 2.1 cables, and it sounds fantastic on my 7.2.4 system. Streams Dolby Atmos from apps! Once you figure out hopping around on all the menus and remotes, it is much easier to transition between external HDMI connections compared to my previous BRAVIA. Glad I made the leap: cutting edge tech is always a pain to use at first, but the end result has me wanting to go back and re-watch movies and shows — looks and sounds much more like an actual movie theater now than any combo I have had before! Wish I had more room for the tv, I would love to go even larger to a 65 inch screen 8′).

    Love this TV. Was conflicted on getting this one or the Sony LED Full array TV. Best Buy worked with me in exchanging two LG nano cells that had software issues on both of them. When the second one had an issue, I knew I was going to switch brands. Decided to go with a Sony after researching and reviews. So glad I did, and upgraded to OLED. The brightness is great. Picture is so clear and lifelike. Software is fast and easy to navigate. Nice that you get 5 credits for five movies on the Sony streaming service. I cannot express how good the picture display is. Much better quality than the LG or Samsung. Worth the price and excellent. I am using this in a bedroom. When I move to my new apartment, I will get another Sony just bigger. Or upgrade to the A95K QD OLED.

    Sony is amazing with almost everything they develop. This TV is great entry level into the world of OLED. I have been rewatching all my favorite movies and cannot believe how amazing the picture is. The Bravia Core promo with 5 free films is a nice bonus too as it showcases the television’s ability as a home theater big screen.

    Picture 5/5. The pic included is with a tremendous about of ambient light (covered, middle of the day). That’s a lot of brightness for a projector! No waiting until pitch darkness for a movie night like with other projectors!Materials/Build: 5/5. It looks and feels fantastic and premium, befitting the price tag.Setup: 1/5 – Upon setting up there is a bug in the software that makes it difficult to connect to wifi. Tech support says to try another wifi source… like I’m supposed to take it to my neighbor’s house or McDonalds? I don’t have more than one wifi source! I had to connect it to my phone which took 6 hours to run the update. This is egregious and really leaves a lot to be desired as a first impression.Keystone/Focus features – 4/5. Not exactly Apple level “it just works” but close. Helps to have a defined screen to shoot on and a projector stand to do a little manual adjusting as well.Remote – 4/5. Updates to the remote make it work just fine. Nebula app is responsive and easy. The dongle and the projector each have their one menu and it’s… suboptimal.Built in streamer – 4/5. Netflix, Amazon, Apple, TUBI, YouTube run beautifully. Disney Plus? Doesn’t. You have the app but get an error code. Hopefully the maker of the dongle updates on their end. Frustrating for the price paid and the promise of having native Disney plus in their advertising.Sound – 5/5. Most things native to the projector sound strong and clean for an outdoor movie.Video Games – 5/5. Attached a Nintendo mini console and it looked and worked great. No noticeable lag in game mode. I imagine playing some kind of competitive shooting game would be different, though.Connections – 5/5. No issues – plugged in the cable box, connected to a Bluetooth speaker, AirPods, Nintendo console, no problems. Some may want more ports than the HDMI and USB included but it works for me.Overall – 4/5. In the end, the picture is the most important part and this delivers. A nightmare setup started things in the wrong foot and some of the overall Jankyness of the android streaming platform are a drawback, especially for the price. I’m happy with my purchase and my family will enjoy this device for years to come.

    My main comment is on the VESA-compliant mounting screw capability on back of the TV for compatibility with standard mounting brackets. I only wished to hang my TV like a big picture within a wall nook especially recessed for 55″ TVs. Using two plain old M6 x 1″ bolts do the job just fine into the back of the set, along with some steel or copper wire cabling between them. The set only weighs 35 pounds or so. Takes 2 people to hang on the wall hangars, which can be 1″ fender washers on sturdy wood lag screws for certainty it won’t ever slip off. If you don’t need to swing your set out and pivot it around, there’s no need to spend $100-300 on a fancy “flush-mount” bracket that does that. I wish Sony packed something other then 2 short M6 screws only, without any cabling or simpler wall mount option.

    I’ve had an Epson Projector for about 8 years that I use in our backyard and for camping trips. It’s a great projector, very bright (4400 Lumens), but also a pain to move around and set up.I started looking at solutions that could be portable and make setup easier. During my research I came across this Nebula Laser 4k projector. The specs looked good as did the product itself.I was hesitant based on some of the reviews and in comparison it seemed that the Xgimi might be a better option. I decided to give the Nevula a shot! The design looked more portable and it seems that the Xgimi and others can’t play Netflix. There appears to be a work around maybe, it I’m not that guy – I just want the stuff to work and not interested in more setup. I also liked that the Nebula has a matching case.I got this the other day and wow! Setup is super easy! Point it at a wall or screen and it does it’s thing. You do have to place it the correct distance and height for your screen size, but no big deal.My wife logged in all of the apps and we were watching movies in no time.I didn’t find any flaws or glitches as some have mentioned. Maybe all of the bugs are worked out.Overall, the picture is great – bright, clear, sharp. Sound is pretty good for a projector as well. I did link it to my JBL Party Box via Bluetooth and that was super easy as well.I think that the size is perfect to move around.If you are on the fence – this is a great projector. I really like it.

    I’ve had a 42″ Panasonic Plasma since 2010 and this Bravia replaced it in the living room. The Bravia looks nice and the system UI is really quick but the Plasma honestly looks better when it comes to the color department and overall picture. Granted, the Plasma can only do 1080p but our internet isn’t the fastest so it’s not like I’ll be streaming 4k at any point, I’ll have to get physical media for that. The Bravia is really nice to take advantage of my PS5 though, having VRR, HDR, and 4k resolution makes games look great. Overall, if you have an old LCD TV or something like that, OLED will probably look amazing. If you’re coming from a Plasma though, you honestly might be disappointed. Still a great TV though, I don’t regret buying the Bravia.

    I have been waiting for some time to buy an OLED, I had $2000 budget and my final product choices were this Sony, An LGC2, or the Samsung S95b. All were viewed at the the stores selling them. I will be straight up with you, I chose the Sony due to the fact, that you can dial in one hell of a picture without a professional calibration. I skipped the L.G. which is a tad brighter, because I do not game at all. I skipped the Samsung because the tech is too new and I purchase a television every 3 years or so. This will give all of the makers who will be selling the new QD oleds ( which will be everyone) to get it right. If you can afford more for the A90k or A90J, I would definitely say to go for it. This television is worth every bit of 1700 bucks. Please check out Quantum, HDTV, Classy Tech, Rtings, or Fomo on their youtube channels to get their info and picture mode calibrations. If you listen to them you will be richly rewarded. I will be doing a follow up review after I have lived with this set for at least a month. If you are a gamer, buy the L.G. If you are into the hype of the Samsung being the best you can buy right now (it is fantastic) but are afraid of the firmware updates and bent screen problems, like me, buy the A80k or the A90k and live with the best picture, ease of use and a beautifully easy to set up interface for picture modes to combat the low bit and frame rates that occur if you watch mainly movies and streaming apps. I went from a mini led to this, my first oled, it was well worth the wait. 4k movies and blurays look fantastic, and if you plan to use this television as a computer screen, don’t buy it. Static chyrons and info banners and logos can cause burn-in. Otherwise I would not worry about burn in. More to come…..

    Bought this TV to upgrade my 2011 model Sony Bravia flatscreen. Huge upgrade in image quality and features! I went back and forth between the cheaper LED panel and this OLED display since I did not want to spend a ton on QLED or mini LED screens and catching this one on sale made the decision much easier. The panel is bright enough to combat some glare and the picture quality is so much better than my old Bravia. I hope it holds up and lasts as long as my last Sony TV. Great experience so far!

    TV was in perfect condition when we got it. Set up was fairly easy. We gave up on the voice control set up for the remote so we could just get to watching the TV and haven’t gotten back around to it. We have not had any issues with it not being bright enough. The TV this replaced was fairly old and was not HDR. Wow what a difference with the video games. So happy with it.

    Wow, what can I say, it definitely earns the ‘Master’ title and although not a huge leap in regards to OLED technology, there’s an important key leap for a better overall visual experience, namely the brightness. It’s very much on par with LED with specular highlights that now punch through and with the advantage of pure black of OLED, we’re onto a new era of visual experience technology. An increase in colour volume can most definitely be seen with surprisingly positive results in older TV shows all without it looking oversaturated, being down to Sony’s amazing processing algorithms and decades of experience in TV/Film production and broadcasting; Sony being the only electronics company to be involved on both sides. 10 out of 10.

    First I am a Sony tv owner for 7 years now, and I have always believed in their products. Yet I am not sure about the A80K. I have noticed some glitches in using YouTube and it maybe my internet (but I don’t know believe so) because on my 65 inch Sony is great. Plus, I had to buy a faster external usb 1000 gig network adapter to speed up the connections to match my TP-Link 5400 6e router much faster accessing Netflix and Prime. Still getting familiar with the settings. Not sure if I see the big color differences than my 65 inch. Not as bright in the dark than expected. I don’t have the box to return the tv, so I going to work on adjusting

    This tv is the best in every category. The voice control remote is easy to use. Just press the buttons on the remote to quickly learn all the functions. No problem setting up google tv. Lots of great free streaming content. So many great things to say. The speakers are loud and clear. The provided tv stand s are strong and sturdy. Not plastic. The picture is the best I’ve ever seen on any tv.

    I highly recommend this plan. Purchased this for future problems I may have with some of my electronics from Amazon that I buy. Unfortunately my laptop went on the fritz and I sent it off to have it repaired by asurion. Laptop was at a point where it could not be repaired and asurion replaced it for me! Whole process was easy and pain free. Asurion you have a customer for life!

    The gummies are great; no complaints at all. The jar, though is another story! Usually, I just need to twist the lid several dozen times, till it finally came open. But this time I just couldn’t get it open! I used everything short of a crowbar to get it open. I practically had to destroy the lid and jar to get it open; luckily I saved the used empty one! Safety and security is one thing, but this is totally ridiculous!

    Their should be at least 60 in the bottle to do 2 a day for a month, especially for the price. I want to buy more but honestly don’t think i will even tho they saved me as i watched my mom slowly die the last few weeks & die 3/7. I was barley eating & lost 10lbs in a month so these came in perfect time. I have to many health problems to loose that much weight, I’m afraid i would’ve ended up in the ER without taking 2-3 a days

    My toddler is very picky and refuses to eat vegetables, so I wanted to find a “green” gummy to make up some of the deficit. She takes a LOT of different chewable vitamins and supplements, but this green one is the one she always reaches for first. I tried them myself and they are absolutely delicious, truly.

    This XR65A80K I purchased was to replace an XR65X950H – the 950H is a very competent TV, and is still in use in a bedroom, but even as good as it is with its local dimming, the idea of zero blooming appealed to me. Fortunately, I have my oldest son’s 55″ LG C2 for a direct comparison, and while the C2 is slightly brighter and a better choice for next gen gaming, I felt the A80K was a better choice for my viewing habits, as most of my use is for movies, occasional YouTube browsing and every now and then, Nintendo Switch for retro games. After over a month to wring the Sony out on everything from 480 material ranging all the way up to 4K UHD Blu-rays, I can say that, as usual, Sony has done some awesome work here.Firstly, much has been made of OLED’s shortcomings in moderately lit rooms – I’ll make this point early, this panel is as capable as the Bravia 65X950H it replaced. Yes, specular highlights are brighter (1100+ nits for the 950 vs ~700 nits for the A80K), but those numbers only tell part of the story. With 8 million plus self lighting organic light emitting diodes, the blacks are perfect, and the brightness of those specular highlights are far more clearly defined. Yes, if you have a room flooded with sunlight, OLED isn’t going to overcome that, but in a room moderately lit by sun, like mine, it’s more than capable. Nighttime viewing is exceptional.The good:*Infinite contrast due to OLED technology. The inky blacks are only part of the story here, the clear distinction of a specular highlight against a far dimmer area create a far more enjoyable movie experience.*Out of the box color accuracy is amazing. First things first, on this and nearly every TV, Power Saving needs to be turned off. Picture Mode should be set to Custom, and in HDR, Gradation Preferred should be enabled. Only change I made to color itself was to slightly reduce the bias on the green sub pixels and slightly boost overall color saturation, the latter of which is something I’ve done on nearly every TV I’ve owned.*Processing. While I generally leave any additional video noise reduction and motion processing off, the few times I’ve felt the need to use any of them, they’ve been adjustable enough to add just what I wanted without the source material losing its sharpness or inducing soap opera effect.*Upscaling. As per usual, Sony’s processing is second to none, although admittedly, LG has definitely closed the gap with the C2. Still, Sony has a visible edge here.*Sound. Although I use a Dolby Atmos/DTS X soundbar with surround speakers, the sound from the TV itself was surprisingly good. Since the panel is actually a speaker, the soundstage is pretty impressive – impressive enough to likely satisfy many people.*Operating temperature. I’d normally leave this out, but I honestly cannot believe how much cooler this thing runs when compared to an LED backlit LCD panel. I foresee this being a huge bonus this summer.*Lack of “black crushing”: This is probably the biggest difference between the A80K and the C2 as far as picture quality. Details in dark scenes are clearly visible on the Sony, whereas they sometimes get lost on the C2.The “it could be better”:*Brightness. This is really nit picking (no pun intended), but given that the A80K uses the same panel as the C2, yet is not quite as bright as somewhat of a mystery to me. To be honest, I can’t see a definitive difference between the two, but it’s worth mentioning.The Bad:*Only two HDMI 2.1 inputs, one of which is the same port used for a soundbar or receiver. To be fair, unless you’re into next gen (PS5/Xbox X) gaming and have both consoles, this isn’t going to be an issue, but a TV of this caliber should have four 2.1 inputs.*Potential for panel burn in. OLED technology has come a long way in the last decade, but the potential is still there for permanent burn in on individual pixels. If you watch a ton of TV (CNN with their bright white/red logo is a perfect example) that has a static logo, OLED probably shouldn’t be on your want list, at least not yet.*Sustained bright picture will auto dim to protect the panel. While I’ve yet to experience this in anything other than intentionally trying to induce it, content with relatively bright areas over the majority of the panel, like ice hockey games, will activate auto dimming.*Dolby Vision. Please Sony, fix this. DV Dark is so out of whack that it’s not even funny. While DV Bright can be made to look perfect as a DV Dark alternative, we deserve better. You did it on the A95K and LG’s is great on their OLEDs, so we know it’s possible.Remote: I get it, this isn’t their flagship OLED, but it should come with the backlit remote.Movies and TV shows are this TV’s strong points, and is particularly impressive with 4K High Dynamic Range/Dolby Vision content, both with hard copy and the built-in Google TV operating system.If sports (especially hockey) and/or the majority of your content has static logos, I’d probably stick with an LED backlit LCD TV.In closing, I did also consider the Sony A95K, the Samsung S95B and the LG C2 and G2. I passed on the Sony and Samsung because QD OLED is in its infancy, with a lot of long term questions about both burn in and longevity. The G2 lost out mostly because of the extra cost of a table top stand (wall mounting is not an option in my case). The A80K won over the C2 because of slightly better upscaling, the ability to pass DTS audio and the C2 having some problems with black crush.

Yes, specular highlights are brighter (1100+ nits for the 950 vs ~700 nits for the A80K), but those numbers only tell part of the story. With 8 million plus self lighting organic light emitting diodes, the blacks are perfect, and the brightness of those specular highlights are far more clearly defined. Yes, if you have a room flooded with sunlight, OLED isn’t going to overcome that, but in a room moderately lit by sun, like mine, it’s more than capable. Nighttime viewing is exceptional.The good:*Infinite contrast due to OLED technology. The inky blacks are only part of the story here, the clear distinction of a specular highlight against a far dimmer area create a far more enjoyable movie experience.*Out of the box color accuracy is amazing. First things first, on this and nearly every TV, Power Saving needs to be turned off. Picture Mode should be set to Custom, and in HDR, Gradation Preferred should be enabled. Only change I made to color itself was to slightly reduce the bias on the green sub pixels and slightly boost overall color saturation, the latter of which is something I’ve done on nearly every TV I’ve owned.*Processing. While I generally leave any additional video noise reduction and motion processing off, the few times I’ve felt the need to use any of them, they’ve been adjustable enough to add just what I wanted without the source material losing its sharpness or inducing soap opera effect.*Upscaling. As per usual, Sony’s processing is second to none, although admittedly, LG has definitely closed the gap with the C2. Still, Sony has a visible edge here.*Sound. Although I use a Dolby Atmos/DTS X soundbar with surround speakers, the sound from the TV itself was surprisingly good. Since the panel is actually a speaker, the soundstage is pretty impressive – impressive enough to likely satisfy many people.*Operating temperature. I’d normally leave this out, but I honestly cannot believe how much cooler this thing runs when compared to an LED backlit LCD panel. I foresee this being a huge bonus this summer.*Lack of “black crushing”: This is probably the biggest difference between the A80K and the C2 as far as picture quality. Details in dark scenes are clearly visible on the Sony, whereas they sometimes get lost on the C2.The “it could be better”:*Brightness. This is really nit picking (no pun intended), but given that the A80K uses the same panel as the C2, yet is not quite as bright as somewhat of a mystery to me. To be honest, I can’t see a definitive difference between the two, but it’s worth mentioning.The Bad:*Only two HDMI 2.1 inputs, one of which is the same port used for a soundbar or receiver. To be fair, unless you’re into next gen (PS5/Xbox X) gaming and have both consoles, this isn’t going to be an issue, but a TV of this caliber should have four 2.1 inputs.*Potential for panel burn in. OLED technology has come a long way in the last decade, but the potential is still there for permanent burn in on individual pixels. If you watch a ton of TV (CNN with their bright white/red logo is a perfect example) that has a static logo, OLED probably shouldn’t be on your want list, at least not yet.*Sustained bright picture will auto dim to protect the panel. While I’ve yet to experience this in anything other than intentionally trying to induce it, content with relatively bright areas over the majority of the panel, like ice hockey games, will activate auto dimming.*Dolby Vision. Please Sony, fix this. DV Dark is so out of whack that it’s not even funny. While DV Bright can be made to look perfect as a DV Dark alternative, we deserve better. You did it on the A95K and LG’s is great on their OLEDs, so we know it’s possible.Remote: I get it, this isn’t their flagship OLED, but it should come with the backlit remote.Movies and TV shows are this TV’s strong points, and is particularly impressive with 4K High Dynamic Range/Dolby Vision content, both with hard copy and the built-in Google TV operating system.If sports (especially hockey) and/or the majority of your content has static logos, I’d probably stick with an LED backlit LCD TV.In closing, I did also consider the Sony A95K, the Samsung S95B and the LG C2 and G2. I passed on the Sony and Samsung because QD OLED is in its infancy, with a lot of long term questions about both burn in and longevity. The G2 lost out mostly because of the extra cost of a table top stand (wall mounting is not an option in my case). The A80K won over the C2 because of slightly better upscaling, the ability to pass DTS audio and the C2 having some problems with black crush.

    with the recent price drop (probably due to new model coming out soon), this TV is brilliant. While I predominantly use Apple TV, the native Google TV is user-friendly. The picture is stunning. A fun fact with the TV is you get 5 free credits to ‘Bravia Core’ which is basically any 5 movies produced by Sony. So far, I’ve redeemed Spiderman: No Way Home and Lawrence of Arabia and enjoyed them both in enhanced IMAX. really, really great; no regrets

    The TV is great and looks really well, but I need to comment on the delivery and don’t see any other place to do so. Delivery schedule was from 7am until 5pm. My doorbell rang at 6:03am and by the time I got up, put on some clothes and went downstairs the delivery guys were gone and had left the TV on the porch.Their notes send they handed DIRECTLY to a person. Fortunately, I live in a safe neighborhood, so it was still around when I opened the front door.

    Unsure how I feel about it. I’m hoping I’m getting nutrients as regular green veggies upset my tummy. These don’t bother my gut but the peach taste is kind of sour and not that great so sometimes I don’t feel like reaching for them.

    This is the first new tv I’ve had since 2014ish so it was definitely time to upgrade. The picture is fantastic once you tune it to your liking and the compatibility with my PS5 makes the experience so much better. Very happy with the quality of the tv and highly recommend it to anyone looking to getting a high end OLED

    Bought the 77 inch A80K to replace my 65 inch Sony A8H that I bought in 2019 right before the HDMI spec 2.1 was released. I moved my A8H to the bedroom and this 77 inch A80K is now the center focal point of my family room. This is a fantastic OLED television that seems to do everything well. It’s definitely one of the better buys for a 77 inch tv. The google app runs smooth and the processor is fast without any glitching. I highly recommend this tv for anyone wanting a fantastic OLED that can run all your favorite applications natively with ease. I also appreciate that the latest audio specs such as DTS-X and Dolby True HD can be processed or passed natively through this tv to an avr receiver through eARC HDMI. In my research, it appeared that most OLED tvs don’t process or pass through the latest audio codecs, instead they are normally down sampled to a compressed Dolby digital format. In addition, I hooked up my PS5 and the 120 frame resolution runs significantly smoother on First Person Shooter games than the 60 frames that my A8H runs. No more screen tearing where opponents would appear to jump across the screen on me. I am really happy with this purchase. There are a lot of positives to this buy and I don’t have complaints.

    Couldn’t get the darn lid off after trying several minutes, so I sawed off the bottom. LOLGreat quality, taste, and my hair grew faster!!Also, my complexion looks great, even if I stay up too late drinking martinis, ha!They’re a little pricey, but the quality is worth it.I can afford this for myself, but would find a comparable product if anybody else in my family started digging it.Try it, see if your skin and hair look better like mind does!

    This 65″ tv rocks! I have an old 55″ Bravia that my folks willed me 10 years ago that was the best TV I’ve ever had until I bought this one.The picture is “picture” perfect. More realistic than ever before. Bright, vivid, clear, and crisp. The sound, phew. I hardly ever use my stereo now except in movies where I want to hear the surround sounds from my steteo’s rear surround speakers. The TV has 5 “speakers” that come through the screen – 2 subwoofers, and a left, right, and center speaker. Although there are only 10 watts going through each speaker for a total of 50 watts, it must be clean wattage with a well matched internal amp because it is of stereo component quality. The subwoofers really add to the fullness in sound. The voice parts come from where the face is on the screen and are full and clear. Even music sounds like you’re playing it through a stereo.Being a smart TV, connecting it to the internet has given me an endless supply of entertainment that I wouldn’t be able to watch all of, even if I just watched TV for the rest of my life. So much to watch. Bluetooth easily connects your phone to stream from your phone as well.Among many other apps already installed on the tv, most free with ads, I often use the YouTube app and Prime Video app on my tv. Endless entertainment.Best TV I’ve ever had. I give it a top rating and certainly recommend it to audio/video connoisseurs.

    Great Picture but lousy settings very confusing configuration. Good luck with the remote control. The setting changes the line up ever time you shut the TV off. I have to switch between TV speakers on set and remote to use the for quiet listening. Every time I have to change audio output type I have to go to two different setting location one on the remote and one on screen and in different spots in those location. It drives me crazy. On top of that the ability to change audio location between TV and remote was not on the set when it arrived. I had to spend 20 Minutes on a service call for them to activate the service. The picture is Great the remote is bad but the factory service is good.
