The Good

  • 4K TV
  • Legacy Support
  • Refresh Rate
  • Picture

The Bad

  • Color

4K TV: While many gamers are used to streaming services for entertainment, the Sony X830C’s HDCP 2.2 compatibility allows it to receive 4K cable feeds. This comes in handy around awards shows like the VGAs and BAFTAs or gaming tournaments like LCS and the International.
Legacy Support: Playing older games can be a hassle on newer TVs due to a lack of inputs and poor upscaling. This TV features upscaling to Ultra HD from lower resolutions, meaning older consoles and ports can be played in crisp quality.
Refresh Rate: The high refresh rate of this TV makes it ideal for PC gaming. Many computers games, old and new, support frame rates higher than the traditional 60, resulting in much smoother gameplay and the ability to make fine adjustments in competitive first person shooters like Counter-Strike GO. Be careful about playing online with higher refresh rates, it may lead other players accusing you of cheating!
Picture: The Sony X830C has an LED display, meaning the picture quality remains consistent regardless of what angle it’s observed from. This unit is perfect for local multiplayer because several players can crowd around the set without worrying about having a proper vantage point.
Color: When compared to the other TVs on this list, the Sony X830C has a much less vivid color palette and poorer blacks. The display is passable, but there’s better options available to the discerning customer.
