Sony’s Best Priced 4K TVs

Sony just started shipping their first 2020 4K LED HDR TVs. The new models arrive in sizes from 43- to 85-inches, priced from $599.99 to $4,499.99. These LED backlit LCD TVs are designed for cost-conscious shoppers who want the best value for maximum screen size.

Sony’s 2020 4K LED TVs are divided into three series — X800H (good), X900H (better) and X950H (best). That’s “best” of this series, not best of Sony overall. Sony’s top-of-the-line models are split between their 8K LED TVs (Z8H) and OLED 4K TVs (A8H) due out summer/fall 2020. Shoppers should note the “H” in Sony’s model naming signifies a 2020 model, while the 2019 models are denoted by “G”.
