Amazon Cyber Monday deal: Get this 70-inch Sony 4K TV for just $800 (65% off)

One of the reasons we love Cyber Monday so much is that it’s one of the best times to buy a new 4K HDR TV. And you will be hard-pressed to find a sweeter deal than this 70-inch Sony X830F Bravia 4K Ultra HD HDR TV, which is only $800 from Amazon for Cyber Monday 2019. We’ll do the math for you: That’s 65% off the regular price of $2,300.

That’s an astonishing price. The lowest we’ve ever seen the 70-inch Sony X830F Bravia is $1,000, so to see it come in at just $800 is remarkable. With its stunning picture quality, 120Hz refresh rate, and smart Android TV interface, this Sony TV is a great addition to any home theater setup. Of course, if you like the idea of a massive 70-inch TV but want an even bigger bang-for-the-buck, it’s hard to beat this deal on a 70-inch Samsung 4K TV for just $550.

Sony uses its 4K X-Reality PRO engine in this TV, which takes any non-4K content you might want to watch and upscales it to 4K resolution. It’s not quite the same as watching native-4K content, but it comes really close.

With four HDMI ports (including an HDMI-ARC port) and a set of component inputs (a rarity on 4K TVs these days), the Sony X830F Bravia gives you a wealth of connection options for streaming media players, soundbars, or cable boxes. There’s even an IR blaster output, which means you can control all of your other home theater devices using the Bravia’s included remote control if you choose.

Speaking of control, because this is an Android TV, Google Assistant is built-in. You can use the remote’s microphone to ask Google to find you shows and movies to watch, and when all else fails, it will find you the best YouTube videos. If you already have a Google smart speaker like the Google Home or Nest Mini, you can speak those commands without even touching the TV’s remote. Just say, “Hey, Google,” and you’re in business.

The Sony X830F Bravia is also a Netflix Recommended TV. That means it’s guaranteed to give you the fastest and easiest Netflix experience possible, with quick-launch capabilities and virtually no lag time when you want to resume a show you’ve previously paused.

4K TV buying guide: Everything you need to know
An LG 70-inch Class NanoCell 75 Series LED 4K UHD Smart TV sits on an entertainment stand in a living room.

If you haven't purchased a new TV at some point in the last decade, then you may or may not know how much has changed. Remember when HD broadcasting rolled out and 1080p flatscreens were the big thing? Nowadays, 1080p is more of an afterthought on larger displays, with a majority of TVs sized 40 inches or larger now supporting 4K and 8K resolution.

On top of increased pixel counts, today's TVs also come in multiple lighting and screen styles, with QLEDs and OLEDs representing which TVs are the best you can get your hands on. Then, when you factor in things like what kind of HDMI ports you need, smart features, size, and overall price, the purchase of a new TV can become a never-ending cycle of research and second-guessing.

LG’s latest 4K UST projector only needs 2.2 inches of wall clearance
lg cinebeam hu915qe ultra short throw 4k laser projector 01

LG's new flagship ultra-short-throw (UST) 4K laser projector, the CineBeam HU915QE, sets some impressive new benchmarks, with 3,700 lumens of claimed brightness, and the ability to be placed as close as 2.2 inches away from a wall. At that distance, it can create a 90-inch image, but if you move it just a little farther away, to a distance of 7.2 inches, that image size can increase to a massive 120 inches. We're still waiting to hear how much LG wants for the HU915QE, but the company says it will be available to order before the end of June 2022.

UST projectors are the perfect solution for those who crave super-large image sizes for their movies, sports, and games, and who don't want to contend with a projector in the middle of their room or suspended from their ceiling. LG is no stranger to laser-driven UST projectors and has produced several models over the past few years. The HU915QE is the second and most advanced LG UST projector to be announced in 2022 -- it follows the the previously released CineBeam HU715Q, which only delivers 2,500 lumens.

Sony brings laser power, native 4K to every 2022 projector
Sony XW Laser Series Projectors.

Sony has updated its 4K home theater projector lineup for 2022, and in so doing has said goodbye to high-pressure bulbs. The entire range now uses lasers as its light source, including the new entry-level, $6,000 VPL-XW5000ES, marking the first time a native 4K laser projector has been sold for so little.

Most of the models have also been redesigned with smaller chassis. Sony has also taken its X1 Ultimate image processing chip for projectors, which it previously reserved for its most expensive flagship, and given it to every model. It has also ditched 1080p resolution, going native 4K and HDR across its collection.
