You’ve never seen a TV like this before. In fact, you’ve never even imagined one. My words here are pretty inadequate in offering up a compelling description to any person who hasn’t yet seen one themselves. Stunning, vivid, jaw-dropping and awe-inspiring come close to describing it’s magnificence. Watching a Blu-ray like After Earth on the device transports you to make it seem as if you are actually floating around in outer space. That’s what it is like sitting in front of the 84” Sony 4K TV which fully lives up to Sony’s “Life Beyond Definition” description. You don’t just see… you feel. It is, in a word, immersive. If ever there were a TV that would make you consider ditching your season tickets because you could get a better in-home experience, this would be it. Want to own it? eBay is giving one away.

I much prefer this look to that of a wide, spreading mass that invades the surface it lives on. It’s not the thinnest TV I have ever laid eyes on, but then that’s not really why one buys a $24,000 set, is it? You don’t purchase it so it can disappear quietly into the background. You buy it so that it, along with you, can proclaim luxury, bleeding-edge and grandeur. For that same reason, the speakers aren’t hidden away in a soundbar underneath the screen. Oh no. They are purposefully detached, one off to each side to draw your eye to them so you know for a fact that the sound design that accompanies this behemoth wasn’t merely an afterthought.
The size of this set is of obvious note and Sony makes viewing it a pleasure with a comfortable 60° viewing-angle. ...
