The Sony X80K is an entry-level TV in Sony's 2022 lineup. It replaces the Sony X80J and sits below the Sony X85K. Compared to the higher-end models, it's pretty bare in terms of features as it lacks any variable refresh rate (VRR) support and HDMI 2.1 bandwidth, and it's limited to a 60Hz panel. Still, it comes with the same Google TV interface that has a ton of apps you can download, and it's compatible with Sony's proprietary TV webcam, so you can use it to make video calls or for hands-free gestures. It also comes with Sony's redesigned remote, which still has a built-in mic for voice control, letting you use various voice commands.
The Sony X80K is okay overall. It's a good TV for watching sports or TV shows in wide seating areas because it has a wide viewing angle and the image looks the same from the sides. It also has decent reflection handling and SDR peak brightness, so it's fine for rooms with a few lights around. However, it isn't good for watching movies or gaming in dark rooms because it has a low contrast ratio and lacks a local dimming feature. Its HDR performance is also sub-par as it has low HDR peak brightness.
