The Sony A80K and A90J are both high-quality OLED TVs suitable for various viewing experiences. The A80K tends to be less expensive and offers excellent picture quality, gaming performance, and is highly reliable. It performs well in both dark and bright rooms, making it versatile for different lighting conditions. The A90J, on the other hand, is priced higher but brings slightly better picture quality, especially with brighter HDR content. It also boasts a superior reflection handling and slightly better sound quality. However, its cost might be a consideration for budget-conscious buyers. If you prioritize cost savings and still desire high-quality performance across different content and environments, the A80K is a sound choice. If you're willing to invest more for top-tier brightness in HDR and marginally better sound, the A90J is a compelling option, particularly for well-lit rooms. Both TVs support the latest gaming features but function equally well for movies, sports, and general content viewing. Give Feedback

USA Today

Michael Desjardin | December 2022
"It’s a high-end TV through and through something that becomes clear the moment you glance at its stunning picture. The A80K’s surgically precise contrast control is likely the first thing you’ll notice about its picture ... every piece of content looks better when this amount of precision is available. Color accuracy is another strong suit; the A80K features fantastic out-of-the-box color accuracy in the Custom picture mode."

Simon Lucas | June 2021
"In every meaningful department – motion control, contrast, edge definition, detail levels, you name it the A90J puts in a memorably accomplished shift. In fact, the Sony proves outstanding at handling on-screen motion of any and every kind. By the standards of television audio systems, the A90J is a notably punchy and genuinely dynamic performer."
