It's not often that we get to write about standard TVs on Android Police... because there aren't many that run Android. But Sony's high-end models are the exception, and today BuyDig's eBay account is offering one of the latest models at a significant discount. The XBR-65X810C is a 65-inch LED TV with 4K resolution, a 120Hz refresh rate, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, and it runs Android TV out of the box. The eBay price is $1199.99 with free shipping, which is $300 cheaper than most online and brick-and-mortar retailers, and an impressive $900 off the retail price.
The XBR-65X810C is equipped with Sony's X1 image processor for accurate colors and upscaling to the native 3840x2160 LED panel. The remote control includes a built-in microphone for voice commands, just like the Nexus Player and SHIELD TV, and because it's Sony-branded it's compatible with the company's PlayStation Now streaming service. The TV can handle four simultaneous HDMI inputs, and it also includes three USB ports for expanding storage or connecting controllers or other input.
This is a new unit, not refurbished, and it comes with a standard manufacturer warranty. Unfortunately, since the seller is technically BuyDig, it's only available in the United States. (The seller isn't shipping to Alaska or Hawaii, either.) New Jersey residents will have to pay 7% sales tax - everyone else will just have to pay it separately when they file their income taxes.*
Another week went by, and the price fell by another $50 to $1099.99.
*Ha ha ha, ha ha ha.
