Deal: Sony's affordable 65-inch X85J 4K HDR TV with 120 Hz is now on sale for its lowest price ever
After we have reported on a couple of intriguing OLED TV deals over the past week, it has to be mentioned that due to the inherent burn-in risk of these screens, a large number PS5 gamers and sports enthusiasts still prefer regular 4K LED TVs which are also more affordable than their OLED counterparts. One particularly enticing mid-range TV made by the reputable Japanese manufacturer Sony is now on sale and has hit its lowest price to date.
Both Walmart and Best Buy offer the 65-inch Sony X85J 4K HDR smart TV for just US$799, down 33% from an MSRP of US$1,199. Despite its comparatively affordable price, this mid-range LED TV comes with a native 120Hz refresh rate as well as HDMI 2.1 features like VRR, which have been added with a recent software update. Considering its low input lag and quick response times, this TV is the perfect companion for lucky gamers who managed to get their hands on a PlayStation 5. Cord cutters who watch regular broadcasts via an antenna will also be excited to hear that the X85J supports the latest ATSC 3.0 OTA standard, also known as next-gen TV.
Fans of HDR and Dolby Vision content will further appreciate the X85J's decent peak brightness of around 550 nits as well as the outstanding contrast ratio which matches the more expensive Sony X90J. In addition to the great upscaling of lower-resolution content, the Google TV operating system provides access to all important streaming services and thousands of other apps. More infos on this LED TV can be found in the comprehensive review by Rtings. In this price range, the large 65-inch Sony X85J is certainly a solid choice and performs very adequately for PS5, Xbox Series X/S gamers and watchers of mixed content.
