What experts liked
The best feature is full-array local dimming ("FALD"), which improves all-important contrast and black levels, and has better uniformity than edge-lit dimming.

The inclusion of the tablet is useful not only as a hub for apps, but it actually enhances the overall usability of the system by putting controls at your fingertips.

Brightly lit objects were well-lit in dark scenes, but even things like the lights at the end of tunnels looked pretty good, with surprisingly few haloes.

The gradient looks very smooth and is almost perfect, without any major visible banding from any colors and even in the grayscale.
- RTINGS.com
HD picture quality was very good. It did an excellent job displaying the finest detail of HD content.
- Consumer Reports
The X800E TVs feature a unique metallic stand that provides good support for the panel while taking up a small amount of table space.

What experts didn't like
Using the tablet for settings and streaming apps is often more of a hassle than traditional onscreen menus.

Simply said, the vast majority of HD/SDR content looks grainy and, at least in the standard picture mode, very washed out. Blacks turn out a muddy, granular grey, while most of the primary colors lack the vibrancy anyone would expect from such an expensive 4K TV.

Turning up the volume not only made the bass worse, but the treble also dropped in quality.

When viewed in a dark room, dark scenes in movies look washed-out and blacks aren't as deep as on other TVs with VA panel.
- RTINGS.com
It did a good job reproducing a greater range of nuanced shadow detail from black to white, with no obvious banding on areas of the image that have subtle shade variations.
- Consumer Reports
A larger problem comes about because of the TV's lack of processing power. While the Android TV platform runs fine initially, a few trips to the Play Store may have your smart features chugging a bit.
