Best HD tv i've seen
The color quality of this model is incredible due to the innovative technology of ColorIQ and Triluminous. You won't believe the reds and greens and blues that this unit achieves. If you want the highest quality picture at a reasonable price, this is your choice.
I set this TV up yesterday and it was easy and quick. I am streaming Netflix movies through WiFi with minimum set up time.
A true powerhouse
Sony still doesn't - get it - in terms of smart features, but proves it knows exactly what it's doing in regards to picture quality. Color accuracy, motion performance, contrast - they're all superb on the W900A. And don't get me started on design, which is becoming a staple of Sony's products.
So what's there to dislike? As mentioned before, this TV's viewing angle isn't terribly wide.
Colors are richer and the gradations are smoother
The LED edge-lit KDL-55W900A wears the crown in Sony's 2013 line of HDTVs and rightfully so with its color rich TRILUMINOS display and wealth of streaming content partners. At 55 inches, this Sony is a serious contender as the cornerstone of your home theater.
I wish it were a little less expensive, but its combination of features and Picture Quality earns it our HDTV Solutions Highly Recommended rating.
Solid, not perfect, picture quality
We may be halfway through 2013, but Sony is just getting started with its TV lineup. If the W802A is any indication, this is going to be a good year for the Japanese electronics giant.
There are many things to like about the W802A: It looks good enough to make your in-laws jealous, it produces a solid picture, and has vastly improved smart features compared to last year. So is this the right TV for you? That depends on how much you're willing to spend.
Excellent treatment of standard def content
Sony's W802A proved to be a formidable TV for everyday use - particularly for viewing in daylight - providing a sharp image, a feature packed smart interface, and that telltale Sony appeal, all wrapped in a handsome frame. We enjoyed the TV for sports, gaming, and most other content. However, its difficulty with 24fps film content and the issues we experienced with its "frame dimming" feature make it feel a bit unfinished, lacking the luxury experience we expect from Sony's second in command.
Curiously charming for an entry-level unit
The Sony Bravia KDL-32R400A (MSRP $330) was one of those really disappointing TVs to review, because it came so close to being excellent. The contrast ratio and color quality I tested were well beyond the expected level of performance when dealing with entry-level, but egregious motion and viewing problems really count this TV out.
While it's not a theater shoe-in, a Kuro killer, or even a smart graduation present, the R400A is not without an audience.
Brilliant colors, Light weight, attractive design
While Sony's R450A is an attractive, option packed TV, its poor off-axis performance and lack of control over intrusive features like MotionFlow have us looking elsewhere. At the $500 price point, your money will go further with competing models from the likes of Samsung and LG. Still, there's something beautiful about how Sony renders its HD content. If you really have to have that Sony glow, the R450A is an inexpensive way to get it; just make sure you're sitting front and center.
Awesome TV and a nice step up from the HX820
Overall the HX850 is a superior TV to the HX820, which is saying a lot considering the HX820 was and is an amazing set. Black levels are similar to the hx820 (awesome) and picture quality has gone up. As always, Sony is king when it comes to displaying the correct colors, vibrant and colorful to say the least.
Delivers a very strong picture quality performance for an edge-lit LED/LCD TV.
The picture quality aspects of the Sony 55HX850 is certainly its best traits as we found some of the features lacking or absent. There are significant picture controls, lots to test, but ultimately the TV produces a very nice picture with most of the "extra" picture features turned off and proper calibration plugged in. The essential premium Internet Apps are covered. The speakers/audio quality is a pleasant surprise, while the menu is disappointing.
A top-notch contrast ratio and colors on this TV are very good.
When all is said and done, the 55HX850 (MSRP $2,600) proves that Sony still knows a thing or two about crafting TVs.
There are plenty of good reasons to consider checking this Sony out, chief among them the TV's picture quality. The 55HX850 has a superb contrast and great colors. This Sony's 3D experience is also great, with no noticeable image ghosting found during our testing. Did we mention that the 55HX850 is a looker, too?
Internet functionality is where this flagship stumbles.
Offered good light output, good detail, great color accuracy
The KDL-55HX850 incorporates many things we liked about the KDL-55HX750, and the addition of local dimming should improve upon the main thing we didn't: its black level. This TV also has a more stylish design and a slightly thinner form. Do these features merit a $400 price increase over the KDL-55HX750? It depends on how you plan to use the TV. If you primarily watch TV during the day or in a fairly well-lit room, then the HX850's improved black level might not matter as much.
Beautiful picture with excellent colors and the blackest blacks
The good news is that Sony' HX850 displays a uniformity of picture quality no matter the source - streaming, over-the-air HD, Blu-ray discs, and MKV-MP4 files from a USB hard drive.
One stumbling block: 3-D. It's only so-so, and it requires a pair of Sony-made glasses, as the company doesn't use one of the cross-compatible standards other manufacturers are relying on. Still, I'm not going to let the bummer 3-D experience sour me on this television.
One of the nicest looking TV sets around.
When compared to the Sony HX820, this is a superior model, which is actually saying quite a lot since that model is a truly amazing TV set. The picture quality is higher and the blacks couldn't get any blacker than they are on this one. Sony has long been considered the king of technology and it when it comes to this Sony KDL55HX850 this is so true. Sony has risen up to the challenge by providing a top-notch TV that is as close to perfect as you can get.
Picture quality is fantastic, even straight out of the box
At $2100 and $2600 (for the 46-inch and 55-inch models, respectively) the HX850 is on par with its LED competition in terms of price - it's certainly more affordable than Panasonic's WT50 - while producing a picture that can compete with plasmas like Panny's VT50. That's a rare talent.
You WILL be dazzled!!!
Take my advice and go check this model out for yourself! Just be prepared to be DAZZLED and don't be surprised if you end up signing your life away to get one! These new 4K resolution HDTV's are game changers, just like the original 720/1080p sets were. Sony's upconversion with their X-Reality PRO chip is TOP NOTCH , the build quality is great , the sound is WAY WAY above average and the color/detail is out of this world.
Solid color performance, poor contrast ratio
If you're going to purchase a TV in the R550A series, do so because you need a media-hosting device, or are particularly attuned to 3D movies. The 50R550A has plenty to tweak to make the picture better, but the bottom line is that it does not have the dynamic power to create a majestic image, and no amount of fiddling will fix that.
There are plenty of smart, 3D, lower-performance 50-inch TVs available this year and last year for less than $1000.
I expect it to have better picture quality than the 84-incher.
If you've read all of the above and decided to buy this TV, Sony's list pricing might give you pause. The 55-inch XBR-55HX950 costs a cool $3,499, while the 65-inch XBR-65HX950 will run you $5,499. By way of comparison, the 55-inch HX929 can be had for $2,999 now -- it's a tough call whether there's $500 worth of picture quality difference between the two, at least until I can review the HX950. Unlike the HX929, the HX950 series will not offer a 46-inch size.
Will yield an exceptional picture quality.
Sony fans may be willing to shell out the $5000 plus for this HDTV. It will yield an exceptional picture quality. This is the only full array 65" LED TV in the market as of this writing. The closest is a LG 60" 60LM9600. Although this Sony seems expensive it may look appetizingly cheap to those looking at the new OLED or 4K TVs coming out later this year.
The local dimming feature is excellent
The Sony Bravia XBR-55HX950 (MSRP $3,499) is worthy of being called a flagship television. Sony crafted a gem of a TV with only a few minor problems: the narrow viewing angle, the clunky menu interface, and the confusing smart platform. Other than these missteps, the HX950 was a pleasure to use.
Easy set up very clear picture in HD
So easy to use and set up, crystal clear picture if you are watching anything HD. This isn't even for sale yet here on Amazon but I bought this at a local dealer yesterday and it is perfect. Apps work great. We have amazon prime and i am watching a movie as I type. We got the 50in and could not be happier.
Good overall image quality
The design of the Sony KDL-46EX645 has seen a little bit of an update compared to Sony's previous line of HDTVs. The new bezel is metallic in color and has a new finish that actually makes it look quite attractive. The stand, on the other hand, is a fairly standard black rectangular design.
Aesthetically beautiful, Well rounded features
Overall, we really like the Sony KDL46EX645. We feel it has a good combination of features for its price. It's a good choice to be the main TV in your home.
Love it, Cystal Clear Screen, Easy Set up
Received this Sony 42" LED HDTV last week and I already own the 32" LED HDTV 1080p so I knew it would be just as great. Well it is better than I hoped it would be. Set up was super easy. The screen is sharper than my 32" size. You can watch this TV in a dark room and it adjusts to its environment. Same with a bright light on. From every angle you can see this TV clearly. This is in our living room. Perfect size. Highly Recommend this TV.
