Sony XBR 55X900B


There's a reason no TV maker focuses on sound quality. For speakers to sound good, they need to be big, and they should face the listener. What sells in TV land is the "all-picture" look, with as little bezel as possible, leaving no room for hefty,...

The Sony XBR-X900B series provides the best picture quality of any 4K TV we've tested so far, competing well against the better plasmas. It also pumped out best sound of any TV we've heard, bar none. Its prominent speakers and high-end finish makes a...

Those speakers: you'll either love 'em or hate 'em. Most people won't love 'em. The X900B is also more expensive than most 65-inch 4K TVs. The high resolution doesn't provide a major boost in image quality, especially with non-4K content. The 3D image...

If you can stand its speakers, Sony's XBR-X900B will reward you with the best combination of audio and video quality you've ever seen (or heard).

Sony's X900A is excellent—if you have money to burn and actual 4K content.

Sony XBR-55X900A Ultra HD LCD TV Reviewed


Adrienne Maxwell tackles her first Ultra HD television review with one of the first UHD television sets. How does it look? Is there a noticeable improvement? Is it worth taking the plunge? Read on to find out!

It's 4,000 words later, and I'm still having a hard time reaching a final verdict on the XBR-55X900A. On the one hand, the TV offers excellent all-around performance, producing a very attractive image in both dark and bright room settings. It doesn't...

Sony XBR-55X900B 4K 120Hz LED TV


The standout features of the 55X900B are 1) the X-tended Dynamic Range feature which allows for more active zone control of the LED backlighting and 2) the Side Mounted speakers eliminate the need for a surround sound system. The side mounted speaks...

Side angle viewing is a clear weakness in this display. That is nothing new for those familiar with LED TVs, but it is something that can be hard to swallow in a purchase as large as this one. The large screen sizes and proper placement of the TV help...

Sony Bravia XBR-55X900A and XBR-65X900A 4K TV hands-on review


4K TVs are undoubtedly the stars of the show at this year's CES with LG, Samsung and Sony all eager to wow both the media and buyers alike. Here's our hands-on review from a brief but close-up look at the XBR-55X900A.

Due to the limited amount of time we've spent with the X900A, we can't give a definitive verdict. We'll update this review when we've done a full test of the TV.

Amazing 4k TV!


I love Sony and just finally upgraded my 46' Sony LED (KDL-46EX700) to this 55' Sony 4k. I am more than happy with this tv and recommend it to anyone that has the money to spend on a premium 4k TV. Even though there isn't much content (TV will stream...

Awesome 4K Experience


I bought the TV after seeing it announced at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) earlier in the year and it completely lives up to expectations. The image quality is out of this world when using 4K content such as that available on Netflix and I have...
