Sony KDL-55W900A review

 

While many of Sony's marketing terms mean nothing in English (or sometimes even Japanese), there have been some memorable ones: Bravia, WEGA, XBR, et al. Here's another, less-catchy, less capitalized one to add to the list: Triluminos. It's Sony's term...

The Sony KDL-55W900A features some of the best colors available on an LCD; deep black levels with excellent shadow details and gamma; sleek design; solid features including four pairs of active 3D glasses; introduces very little input lag.

More expensive than an ST60 plasma; only available only in a 55-inch size; some strange artifacts in 3D.

The Sony W900A is a fine high-end LED LCD television, with excellent color performance and deep black levels.

Sony KDL-55W900A 3D LCD HDTV

 

The new KDL-55W900A is Sony's newest, top-of-the-line, non-XBR set. All of the XBRs, going forward, will be Ultra HD (4K) sets, but the KDL-55W900A, as all of the KDL designs, is firmly in the standard HD, 1920 x 1080 camp. It's an edge-lit design with...

The only fly in the soup here is the fact that, as I write this, Sony’s XBR-55HX950 may still be available. For almost the same price, the XBR-55HX950 offers comparable performance in most respects, plus superior blacks. To be honest, if I were in the...

Sony KDL-55W900A review

 

Sony's new brand-leading non-4K TV is coming soon

Vivid colours ; Really thin ; SideView is cool

Looks like another good range from Sony but we'll wait and see what our lab tests tell us.

Stupid TV - NO YouTube!

 

Do not buy Sony TV's! they are trash! Constantly crashes during "smart" operations - stupid TV! and YouTube is no longer licensed, so there is no point! Skype feature with camera works good, no issues there, resolution good, but the browsing of movies...

Resolution, Optical out, works good with Bose Cinemate

Sorting, Video file incompatibility, No YouTube, Crashes a lot!

Simply The Best.

 

The Sony KDL55W900A replaced my 46inch HX850 and I had worries that the W9 would not be able to match it in any category. I was wrong, so very wrong! First the design is beautiful and pic's don't do it justice. You have to see it in person to...
