The Sony X77L is an LCD TV priced in the lower midrange segment and offers a 65-inch screen size. It has fair performance for sports and watching in bright rooms but tends to perform poorly for viewing movies and series, gaming, and in dark room settings. This model does well in terms of quality control and viewing angles. It supports 4K resolution and High Dynamic Range content, including HLG and Dolby Vision, but lacks HDR10+ support. With just decent sound quality, this TV provides voice command features for accessibility but does not give standout auditory experiences, as indicated by its lack of great speakers. With 3 HDMI ports and good color out of the box, this TV could be a good choice if you prioritize fair performance across various content types at a more affordable price, while tradeoffs include its weaker performance in high-contrast scenes and limited brightness capabilities.

Ratings by Category

Sports:
3.9
The Sony X77L has a fair handling of reflections, which is beneficial during sports watching in well-lit rooms; however, its response time is rated poor, which may lead to motion blur during fast-paced games, diminishing the overall sports viewing experience.
News, Talk & Reality TV:
3.0
The Sony X77L performs well in upscaling lower resolution content, which is crucial for maintaining clarity while watching standard-definition programs such as news or talk shows. However, modest performance in SDR brightness and poor color volume may lead to less vibrant images, which can be a downside for daytime viewing or in well-lit rooms.
Cartoons & Animaton:
3.0
The Sony X77L performs well with colors straight out of the box, which is crucial for vibrant and appealing cartoon images, but it has a limited color volume and gamut, which means it may not display the widest range of colors, reducing the vividness and depth of animations. Additionally, factors like gray uniformity and SDR brightness are only rated fair, which can affect the consistency of colors across the screen and the visibility of animations in well-lit environments.
Bright Room:
3.0
The Sony X77L has been assessed to have 'Fair' SDR Brightness, meaning it doesn't get extremely bright, which could make the viewing experience less vibrant in well-lit rooms. Moreover, its capacity to handle reflections is also considered 'Fair', indicating that the TV might struggle with direct light sources, potentially affecting the visibility of the screen.

Milton Clark | September 2023
"For an entry-level model, Sony’s X77L is a decent 4K TV. It’s color reproduction, along with crisp and clean picture images revealed plenty of detail and clarity thanks in part to Sony’s excellent video processing."
