Sony Bravia KDL-55W905A

 

Sony's TVs keep getting better thanks to some nifty new tech

Sensational 2D and very good 3D picture quality ; Distinctive and elegant design ; Impressive audio quality

Very limited viewing angle ; Sony Entertainment Network Hub menu is cumbersome ; Minor crosstalk with 3D

And should you rather view content stored on a USB flash drive or other device, USB streaming and DLNA network streaming are present, too.

Sony KDL-55W905A

 

A great looking TV that wows in 3D, but there are a few snags that means it falls short of five-star glory

Great design ; Easy to use ; Stunning 3D performance ; Largely convincing and more vibrant colour palette ; Good motion handling ; Excellent detail in brighter scenes

Poor viewing angle ; Detail lost in dark scenes ; Blues occasionally overblown ; Sound is on the thin side

Sony KDL-55W905A review

 

After exploding back on to the TV scene in 2012 with its stunning HX853 series, Sony is hoping to make just as much of a splash with that model's successors, as represented here by the 55W905A.

Superb image and audio quality; good quantities of online video streaming; striking design

A little 3D crosstalk; limited viewing angle

Sony KDL-55W905A review

 

Sony's new flagship TV raises the LCD bar, adding new Triluminos technology to its outstanding flagship LCD panel design

Stellar picture quality ; Striking design ; Video-rich online service ; Excellent audio

Minor crosstalk with 3D ; Limited effective viewing angle ; Smart interface slightly primitive ; No second-screen support

As well as looking more chic, the Sony 55W905A uses new Triluminos technology to deliver a much improved colour performance

Sony KDL55W905A 3D LED TV Review

 

The Bravia KDL-55W905A is yet another fantastic HDTV from Sony that flies the LED LCD flag high. Although we are again disappointed by the relative lack of advanced calibration controls compared to rival premium TVs, this is partially offset by the...
