Like UFO said, a store display under bright lighting is not really a place to judge black levels. The X800B pairs Sony's excellent XReality LSI with an average IPS panel and omits their Triluminos backlight tech.
That being said, it has a great design and is a good choice for a bright room. I'd look into a W700B for dark room viewing even though it isn't 4K.
