Sony KDL-46W905A review


There's plenty of momentum behind Sony TVs at the moment, and W9 is the tip of the spear

Superb picture quality ; Excellent interface ; Very efficient ; Best-ever input lag

Sony KDL-46W905A


Looks good. Picture quality in the sweet spot good. Easy to set up.

Sony KDL-46W905A


Good for gaming. Ok picture quality for an led tv. Good up scaling of standard def

Inconsistent uneven backlight. Variable inconsistent blacks. Lack of detail in blacks. Sometimes appears washed out with inconsistent brightness levels. Don't like the Sony badg design at bottom. Weak sound. Expensive, why give away a phone with it...
