TL;DR: This top-notch 70-inch 4K Sony Bravia TV is on sale for $998 at Walmart — a colossal savings of $1,000 compared to Sony.com.


Sony’s illustrious OLED TVs are kind of like the iPhone of the TV world — in the way that each year’s new line is raved about for months ahead of time. The tech pioneer aims to bring CES-level tech to the homes of everyday people, with 8K being the next thing on the list.

While that’s still a while off, you can experience the magic of one of Sony’s most hyped lines for every episode of Mindhunter: This Sony Bravia X830F 4K TV is a whopping $1,000 off at Walmart, dropping the price of the 70-inch monster to just $998.

This Bravia TV, the X830F, situates itself in between the X800F (the budget pick) and the X900F (the high-end, expensive pick). Despite the absence of local dimming in the X830F, it still supports a high native contrast ratio that makes dark scenes feel deep without requiring squinting. Gamers will appreciate the low input lag and motion handling, while hardcore binge-watchers will find the built-in Chromecast to be a lifesaver.

Viewing angles aren’t the best here, so it’s a good thing this massive display spans most of your wall. (When you’re getting a 70-inch TV for less than $1,000, you can’t complain.)

After directly comparing the two, a reviewer from Slant actually recommended the X830F for most people due to an ad-free interface (yeah, that’s a thing) and there’s an option to disable suggested content on the home screen. Alternatively, the X900F’s interface isn’t so customizable. 

Regularly $1,998 (and still $1,988 at Sony’s site and Best Buy), you can save $1,000 and get the 70-inch model for $998 with free freight delivery.
