Refresh Rate – The all-new Sony Bravia TV comes with a native refresh rate of up to 75.6 frames per second. This is a big improvement over the A80’s slightly slower refresh rate. You would struggle to find a television today that had a better screen-scraping ability. It also has a very good audio output coupled with clear picture quality that will make you feel like you are watching high definition television. With a faster refresh rate; the Sony Bravia A80J is very quick when watching video and playing games.
Advanced Screen Control Function – The advanced screen control function on the Sony Bravia XR A80J allows you to adjust the screen from any angle in portrait mode. You can also adjust the brightness of the TV from six different levels; making it great for those who like to watch TV but like to keep their eyes very alert. The TV has a very quick response time when switching between input sources such as DVD movies. You will also experience no screen door effect which means you do not have to turn the TV’s glare reduction feature on. This is a huge bonus if you love watching movies at the theater but hate the glare from the screen.
Three HDMI Ports – The Sony Bravia XR A80J comes standard with three HDMI ports. These ports are connected up front using optical connectors. An optical digital port connects to the TV for optical outputs. A digital optical port connects to the TV for output and uses BNC connectors for secure connection.
