Rtings review: https://www.rtings.com/tv/reviews/sony/x720e

Pros:
- Looks good even if viewed from the sides
- Low input lag is great for gaming

Cons:
- Limited app selection
- Blacks aren't uniform.

"The Sony X720E is a decent entry-level 4k TV with a better than average viewing angle and low input lag for gaming. It lacks the fully-featured smart platform found on other Sony TVs and instead, offers only a limited set of apps distributed through the Opera TV Store. Due to the mediocre picture quality in a dark room, it is better placed in a brighter environment where the less uniform blacks won't be an issue."

Some other key points:
Great TV to use as a monitor. It supports important resolutions such as 4k@60hz with 4:4:4 for smooth text. Combined with its low input lag, low motion blur, and wide viewing angle, it makes for a PC monitor that would suit almost every uses. It's only missing support for a 120hz refresh rate for competitive gaming.

Great TV for playing video games. The Sony X720E's low input lag and great handling of motion keep games responsive and immersive. Even if it is only 60 Hz, it can flicker to reduce motion blur even further.

Decent TV for a mixed usage. The Sony X720E does especially well for sports and TV shows thanks to its good performance in a bright room and wide viewing angle. Unfortunately, its performance in a dark room leaves a lot to be desired due to its shallow, uneven blacks.

Good TV for watching sports. The Sony X720E's grays and colors are quite uniform, so sports fields and ice rinks look smooth and free of blotchiness. The TV's wide viewing angle is also great for game day parties with friends where people will be watching the TV from the sides.
