I have a 55 inch Sony TV with Android TV in my bedroom. I love it, the picture is beautiful, the apps load quickly and work well, and it's running freaking Android! That being said, I love it a little less today, because my TV is 1080p, and I paid more for it than the 55 inch 4K Sony that is on sale today. Dang it. Early adoption sucks sometimes.
The Sony XBR-55X810C 55-Inch 4K TV is available on eBay for $799.99 for a limited time. That is a great price on an excellent TV which retails elsewhere for a grand. It's a full $50 cheaper than the last time it went on sale. Like the TV in my bedroom, it runs Android TV and supports Google Cast out of the box. Both of those features work great on my Sony, so I would imagine they run equally superb on this device and look even better in 4K resolution. Amazon reviewers also seem to have a favorable impression of the TV, and give it a 4.4 star average rating.
Here's a rundown of the key specs:
- Refresh Rate: 120Hz native refresh rate
- Native Contrast Ratio: over 5,000: 1
- Screen Lighting: Edge-lit LED backlighting with frame dimming technology
- Resolution: 3,840 x 2,160 pixels UHD
- Wireless Connectivity: Built-in WiFi and Ethernet port
- 4x HDMI with HDCP 2.2 support
- 2x Composite
- 1x Component
If you are looking for a TV with some Android goodness baked right in, then you should really check out this deal, prices like this are hard to pass up. That is, if you haven't already blown your electronics budget on a 1080p model of the same TV six months ago like I did. There is that empty wall in my bathroom though...
