ABOUT THIS TV

Sony XR-65A80K 400x400 Image Sony XR-65A80K

Launched in the year 2022, the XR-65A80K is a 65" 4K TV from Sony. It comes with a True 10-bit OLED panel.

It can achieve a max resolution of 3840 x 2160 @ 120 Hz with a pixel density of 68 ppi.

Picture Quality

After screen size and resolution, the very next feature of a display that impacts picture quality is Color Gamut.

Sony has not provided a color gamut specification for this TV. But don't worry, we have other means to guess that. As it comes with an OLED panel, so we can conclude that the equivalent sRGB coverage of this TV would be far above 100%.

Understanding Color Gamut

Color gamut specification of a display is a measure of the range of colors that it can show.

A display with poor color reproduction will produce undersaturated/washed out colors that will spoil your immersive experience.

It is specified in different units - sRGB(most popular), NTSC 1953, DCI P3 to name a few. It is upto the manufacturer which one they choose.

But don't worry, here is a chart that you can use to choose a TV with good color accuracy.

Color Gamut Chart

After color gamut, the static contrast specification of a TV holds almost equal role in picture quality.

What is Static Contrast ?

Static contrast ratio of a TV corresponds to its Black levels. A Display with low static contrast ratio (<1000:1) will not produce deep blacks. Moreover, such TVs are likely to suffer from backlight bleeds such as this:

Needless to say, this will rob your viewing experience considerably, especially in a dark room.

Other than black levels, a TV with high constrast ratio enables you to see more details. So, resolution and static contrast ratio go hand in hand in a sense.

If given a choice, I will prefer a FHD TV with high contrast ratio over a 4K TV with low contrast ratio.

For a display with OLED panel, its static constrast would be Infinity : 1. So no need to worry about this.

Dolby Vision, HDR10 and HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma) are also supported on this TV.

Coming to brightness, the peak brightness the TV can produce is 250 nits.

Gaming Performance

If you are planning to use your TV just for content consumption, you can safely ignore these specifications. But if you are also planning to use the TV for playing games or use it as a PC monitor, make sure to take a TV with the lowest input lag and response time.

The input lag on the Sony XR-65A80K is 5 ms and its minimum response time is 1 ms. Pick this one if you are a gamer.

What is Input Lag and Why it matters ?

This lag is the latency at which your device inputs changes the content of the TV. For casual Non-FPS games, input lag doesn't matter much.

For best of both worlds, get a TV that features an input lag and response time of < 20ms.

Ergonomics and Dimensions

Coming to ergonomics — VESA mount is supported on this TV with an interface size of 300 x 300 mm. The unit doesn't come with Swivel, Tilt or Pivot support.

The TV extends upto 65 inches (adjustable +1.65 in) vertically and 57 inches horizontally. It is 2 inches thick.

It weighs approximately 23.0 KGs, another 1.6 kgs if you include stand. So plan your space accordingly.

Hardware and Audio

For display connectivity, Sony has provided two HDMI 2.0 ports, two HDMI 2.1 ports and one AV Composite In 3.5 mm jack port on this TV.

To connect USB devices, you will have two USB ports. Other connectivity ports include — 1x CI+ 1.4, 1x Satellite In (Main — F-type female), 1x Satellite In (Sub — F-type female), 1x Antenna (RF) (female) and 1x Ethernet RJ45.

For connecting to this TV wirelessly, the manufacturer has provided Wi-Fi (5Ghz + 2.5Ghz), Wifi-Direct, Bluetooth and DLNA.

Speaking of speakers, Sony has provided 3 x 10W speakers on the TV. It also comes with a built-in subwoofer. So you don't have to invest on any external sound system.

As for power consumption, on average, it consumes 114.24 Watts and on standby, it takes 0.5 Watts.

Both 110V and 220V outlets are supported on this unit.
