About the Sony KD-43X80J
Quality and value
Quality and value
Looking for a new TV with a sharp picture, modern smart features, and a price tag that won't break the bank? Sony's KD-43X80J might just be for you. This feature-packed 43" TV delivers smooth, detailed 4K images that put it a cut above the performance of most other value-priced TVs.
HDR with support for Dolby Vision can make your TV pop with improved contrast and color.
Powerful picture processing
Sony is known for its powerful processing technology. This TV's 4K HDR Processor X1™ analyzes individual on-screen objects and intelligently adjusts color and contrast. This attention to detail results in greater depth and texture for a rich, lifelike picture.
The KD-43X80J also supports the Dolby Vision® HDR (High Dynamic Range) format. This sytem adjusts brightness and color levels scene by scene for enhanced contrast and detail with Dolby Vision encoded programs, many of which are available through popular streaming services.
Realistic, vibrant color
The TV's TRILUMINOS PRO™ display technology further enriches your experience by providing a wider palette of vivid colors. The additional subtlety in color variation helps the picture look authentic and natural.
Stream with Google TV
The TV's built-in Google TV smart app platform puts a wide range of streaming services at your fingertips, from Netflix® to Disney+, and consolidates their search results into a single user interface. This saves you a ton of time by letting you search for content through multiple services at once. If you're looking for Rumble in the Bronx, Google TV will quickly point you in the right direction. No need to individually search through each service you're signed up for.
You also get custom recommendations. After watching Jackie Chan knock out street punks in New York City, you can watch him dangle from a helicopter in Supercop — on a completely different service.
Convenient voice control
You can navigate the basic functions of the TV and even search on Google TV with just your voice. The included remote control has a built-in mic that can capture your commands and communicate them to the TV. The TV is also compatible with Google Assistant and Alexa, letting you incoporate the TV into your existing smart home system.
