Technology


Color, clarity and detail at their best

The W900A displays everything you watch – HD movies, sports, YouTube clips and home movies – in clarity and detail so real it’s like looking through a window. Sony’s X-Reality Pro engine restores images to their original beauty with rich colors and high contrast for our most lifelike picture ever.


More brilliant color than
ever before

See a wider range and more brilliant colors than ever with Sony's unique TRILUMINOS display, giving you our most authentic viewing experience ever. Hard-to-reproduce reds, aqua blues and emerald greens are displayed beautifully, so landscapes and seascapes look more vivid, while faces look better with more natural skin tones.


Lifelike Motion

When you watch a kickoff at the stadium, the ball doesn’t blur from left to right. Recreating natural motion with reduced judder and less blur, Motionflow XR 960 helps you see each end-over-end rotation by taking motion clarity beyond refresh rates, which are only measured in Hz, to quadruple the motion effect so you see everything as if you were there.

The difference is dynamic

It's all about perfecting a natural look. Dynamic Edge LED backlighting with local dimming displays your movies and shows with tremendous accuracy and detail, especially in dark scenes where details tend to get lost. Contrast boost in just the right areas creates pitch-black night scenes and bright scenes that pop with vibrant color.

Your smartphone, now on TV

Movies, music and apps from your smartphone can now be viewed big on your TV. With three ways to connect Android phones and tablets to the W900A, Sony is helping you add
value to the entertainment you
already own2,5,6.

Go beyond cable with
built-in Wi-Fi

Wirelessly stream beautiful, HD entertainment straight from the internet or your home network using built-in Wi-Fi connectivity and open the door to the endless entertainment of the Sony Entertainment Network, where thousands of movies, TV shows, online videos, games and music are always at your fingertips. By connecting to the Internet you can access Full HD 1080p entertainment, 3D content and made-for-TV apps like Amazon Instant Video, Netflix, Pandora, YouTube, Facebook and more1.


Additional Features


Sound that’s all around you

Whether you’re watching movies, live concerts, drama or sports – enjoy rich, dynamic sound from your TV speakers that feels like it’s filling the room. Unique to Sony, S-Force Front Surround technology processes audio signals to create an immersive, finely detailed soundstage that pulls you right into the heart of the action. An enlarged ‘sweet spot’ lets you enjoy optimum audio reproduction, even if you’re not sitting dead-center right in front of the TV screen. It’s the perfect way to enhance your viewing experience, with sound you might expect from a dedicated multi-channel surround sound system.

Your smartphone, now on TV

Movies, music and apps from your smartphone can now be viewed big on your TV. With three ways to connect Android phones and tablets to the W900A, Sony is helping you add value to the entertainment you already own.

1. Using a Mobile High Definition Link cable, you can connect your smartphone to the TV to literally “mirror” what’s seen on the smartphone screen. Video, photos and apps are re-sized and scaled to fit the larger TV screen. You can then use the TV remote to navigate the phone, while it’s charging from the TV5.

2. Using screen mirroring technology, you can connect phones that are Miracast enabled to the TV2.

3. Using One-touch mirroring with NFC technology, briefly place your compatible Xperia smartphone to the one-touch remote. You’ll instantly be able to view exactly what is on your smartphone’s screen on the TV6.


In-your-face 3D action

Brace yourself for pure 3D excitement that feels like you're standing alongside the actors. Through advanced Active 3D technology, immerse yourself in Full HD 1080p clarity and phenomenal 3D picture quality. Just slide on the comfortable 3D active glasses and enter a whole new dimension3. Four pairs included.

Control TV with your smartphone
or tablet


Control the TV or browse your local channel guide using the TV SideView app on your smartphone or tablet (Android or iOS), all without interfering with what you’re watching on the TV. Learn more about the show you’re watching with information like cast and episode details. Search what’s available to watch on TV, Internet videos and apps like Netflix. Once you find what you want, you can select to view it on the TV. Make your viewing more social by Tweeting about the show from your mobile device2.

Onboard manual

You will never lose your TV manual again. The iManual is available through the menu system on the TV – always there if you need it.

Twice the fun: 2‐player games with no split screen

Say goodbye to split screen. Now you and a friend can both experience your own big-screen view of the action as you play nail-biting games on your PlayStation 3 system. SimulView gaming presents two separate pictures: each player watches independently through Simulview glasses7. There’s already a growing choice of SimulView game titles available.

Quartz-cut design

Inspired by the sharp edges and color found in quartz crystals the Quartz-cut design brings a new edge to TV with a hint of translucent color that emphasizes the hidden gem within. Brilliant color, sharp detail and an overall sense of beauty can be found in the thin border that traces the edge of the TV screen.

Life-sized video calls

It's like they're in the room with you. Skype video calls bring your family and friends closer than ever as they appear as large as life on your big screen—for free1. Just connect the easy-to-use Skype camera (sold separately) for a face-to-face look at the caller on the beauty of your Sony HDTV.

To provide a little background, I had originally ordered the Samsung UN60F7500 and after receiving two TV's with physically noticeable manufacturing defects (both manufactured the same day in the same plant, go figure!), I opted to receive a refund and try an entirely new brand. I was glad this happened because I hadn't realized what I was missing until I received the Sony KDL-55W900A. Now before I begin, keep in mind that the Samsung F7500 is essentially a semi-step down from the F8000, which would be the W900A's direct competitor. So, take any comparisons I make with a grain of salt as I am only able to provide my own personal experiences with the products I've had the pleasure of owning. The difference between the Samsung F7500 and F8000 is 1) a slightly higher artificial motion rate (most videophiles turn off motion processing anyways) and 2) 2x the scanning of number of zones in an image for micro dimming purposes, so essentially dimming at more local of a level than the F7500, as well as precision black dimming capabilities (in other words, deeper, richer, more accurate blacks than the F7500).

-----PICTURE QUALITY TRUMPS SIZE-----
At first, I was afraid that going from a 60" to a 55" would be a huge letdown; after all, you lose ~20% screen area when downgrading. However, the noticeable improvements in quality control and picture quality from my 60" TV more than make up for the smaller screen. Simply put, my W900A has perfect screen uniformity. Zero clouding, zero DSE, zero banding, and little to absolute zero flashlighting (depending on what your backlight and brightness are set at). The picture quality is extremely impressive: rich colors, impressive blacks, and great motion handling, which I will touch on in the Pros section further down.

This TV is absolutely amazing! I did literally months of research to find the best deal I could, and this is it. This TV is the best LED TV you can buy, hands down. It even beats out the overpriced Samsung models that try to compare in quality. The quantum dot display technology does really make the difference. If you want to see the magic for yourself, just go to a bestbuy with a magnolia center and you can see this TV next to all the other higher end televisions. The colors on this TV are way deeper than anything else in the room. I get compliments on my tv all the time because of how great the color is and how deep and inky the blacks are. It really does measure up to the best plasma tv's when it comes to the black levels. The local dimming feature of this TV really helps out with the blacks as well. The 240 refresh rate is also very very nice. I have not had to adjust this at all out of the box. It just works, like it should.

For the gamers out there who are looking for the best tv for their games, this is it, and if you are any sort of a actual dedicated gamer you would know that a big concern for you is the input lag. Typical monitors run anywhere between 3/ms and 20/ms lag depending on what kind you have. TV's are way worse averaging between 30/ms-60/ms lag making playing games on them frustrating at best. I don't believe that gaming should be a chore, so one thing I researched was input lag. This TV has an input lag of 17/ms!! I could tell right away the big difference the lack of input lag has. The only way to find less input lag is to either buy the Sony 802A which has about 16m/s lag, or go buy an actual computer monitor. There is no other TV out there with less input lag.

Wow, is a reaction I got once I calibrated this TV, the colors even if viewed from a standard color gamut pop very nicely. If you really want to see how vibrant the colors are just try watching fireworks in full HD and I guarantee your jaw will drop to the floor.

I used to own XBR HX950 that was somewhat defective so I had to return it and instead of getting a replacement I got this TV and between XBR HX950 and W90 the difference in how vibrant the colors are is massive. Besides the colors this TV produces, it has the same deep blacks if not close as HX950 which is quite surprising to see sense HX950s main focus was to have really deep blacks more of so in really high contrast ratio scenes. Another thing I noticed is that while HX950 has glare problems because of it's backlight technology this TV doesn't but rather it has flashlighting sense it's edge lit which isn't as big of a problem as glare is, at least to me it isn't. Other than that the Sony's TVs are known for their X Really PRO software engine which makes twicking this TV to your desires a snap. I'd say this TV is the best 1080p TV I have seen to date compared to any brand.

Update 07/27/13:

I noticed a lot of people have problems with calibrating this TV to get optimum color. The thing with color is that it's mostly determined by the source. A lot of edited film is made saturated on purposes to compensate for not that great saturated TVs. The best way to adjust this TVs color is not the color setting in the picture setup but the live color in advance settings, though to get the most accurate color you'd have to have your source to support Deep color/x.v. Color and sYCC, for now there are not a lot of devices that support Deep Color but I reckon in the future it'll become more prominent. PS3 and I am sure PS4 support Deep Color.
