Product Description

Sony KDL65S990A 65-Inch 1080p 480Hz 3D LED TV

From the Manufacturer

Sony make . believe

The cinema comes home with the immersive experience of the world’s first curved LED HDTV. This all-in-one cinema experience for your home combines a slight curve similar to movie theaters with more brilliant colors than ever before and a powerful angled speaker surround experience for the complete home theater like never before.


A true cinematic experience
at home

Surround yourself with a more immersive entertainment experience. The slightly curved screen provides a greater sense of depth to every scene by expanding your field of vision. The curved screen delivers a more natural viewing experience.

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.

Color, clarity and detail at their best

The S990A 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.

surround sound

The S990A’s multi-angle speakers provide sound you might expect from a dedicated surround sound system. It’s the perfect way to enhance your viewing experience. The 40 watt8 front facing speakers are angled in multiple directions for superb results. Unique to Sony, S-Force Front Surround technology processes audio signals to create an immersive, finely detailed virtual 5.1 soundstage that pulls you right into the heart of the action.

Not a bad seat in the house

You’ll be hosting the next big game at your house with the S990A. The slight curvature of the screen helps viewers sitting at varying angles to see more and have a more comfortable view of the screen than traditional flat screens. Engineered to produce a wider angle of visibility, the S990A has a more consistent image from every viewpoint in the room.

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.

Additional Features

Moves like real life

Golf balls roll clearly, with less blurring, as the camera follows them across the green. Footballs retain their detail and move smoothly as the camera pans quickly during a kickoff. Even quick motion seen in action movies appears amazingly realistic as Motionflow
XR 480 takes motion clarity beyond refresh rates, which are only measured in Hz, to double the motion effect for lifelike clarity.

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.

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 screen1. 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.

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 S990A, 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.

Theater-like 3D

Using the same passive 3D technology used in movie theaters, feel the explosive excitement of theater-like 3D. Even the sound profile is enhanced for 3D viewing to provide a more immersive experience3. Slip on the latest generation of light, comfortable 3D glasses to enjoy your favorite 3D movies. Four pair of glasses included.

I ordered this TV open box from Wizard Electroland at a great price and the TV arrived in all original packaging and everything looked 100% brand new. I couldn't even tell the box had ever been opened.

Personally I think the curved screen is great. The curve is very subtle and I can't imagine it would cause concern for most people. I don't see that the curved screen really improves anything on the viewing end. From straight on you couldn't even tell the screen is curved unless you already knew it was. From slight to moderate angled viewing it seems to help see the screen better, but at extreme angles I would say the curve making viewing more difficult. I love the curve mostly for aesthetic reasons. I find it makes the tv more unique looking and has a really classy, high-end look to it. I've already gotten numerous compliments from friends and family on it.

The picture quality on the TV is outstanding. I'm completely blown away. So far I just did an eye-ball calibration on the set, but I plan to run Disney's WOW calibration to further dial it in. The blacks are very deep and the colors are bright! Skin tones seem to be very realistic. The input lag is amazingly low and the tv is wonderful for gaming. The passive 3D quality is also very good and from a 10 foot viewing distance I can't really notice a drop in resolution.

I use a 7.2 home theater system so I haven't used the TV speakers much, but I did test them out just because I'd heard they were really good and I will say they are by far the best sounding stock speakers I've ever heard on a flat screen tv.

The TV comes with 2 remotes, which is nice. 1 is a full size remote and the other is a much smaller, cut-down remote with only more basic buttons, but it's nice to have both options.

This TV was better than expected. The picture is great and the color superb. The 3D is truly the best I have seen on TVs or at the movies. A truly remarkable set. I am 78 and I don't often write revues but this set blew me away.

We have upgraded from a 4 year old Toshiba LCD, which is still working great. We first tried Samsung 7100 and though the picture quality was good but it was not consistent as some movies seems to be washed out and required changes to the settings. Also, the color depth and quality was not as good as my old Toshiba. I had to think twice before returning because the picture clarity and 3D were amazing but didn't like the idea of frequently changing the settings to the liking. With my old LCD, all I do is change the mode but there was ever a need to change the settings. As we were happy with our old Toshiba, and based on the good reviews, we tried 7350 series. Though the ratings were good but we were not impressed especially when compared to 7100. Coincidentally, during that time, the price of this model came down by $1000, which was still a stretch but we went ahead for the following reasons -

Curved LCD - we checked in person as well in a local store.
Passive 3D – Watching active 3D for more than 2 hours caused strain
Sony picture quality – review ratings for the similar high end model were very good.

It has been a day, and so far we are very much impressed with the TV. It is better than 7100 for sure, and Passive 3D is amazing - I did not find any difference in resolution between this and Samsung's active 3D, and on the contrary Passive seems to be better as the images do pop out more and image does not seem to shrunk that much.

I was little skeptical in the beginning, as there were not many reviews of this model, and whatever reviews that are available on the internet questioned the need for a curve TV. Curve in this TV is very minimal and gives a very good feel and appeal.

With the limited distribution of this television I took the BIG chance and bought it based on limited reviews I could find on this set. I would have to say every review stating this is the best TV they have seen is 100% correct. The increase color range adds a whole new look and feel to your movies :).... The picture has really smooth movements. The curve is just enough to add a nice feel to the screen without the picture feeling like it being squeezed in the middle. I really enjoy the clean look to the set it self, it really sets its self apart from any other TV you will see on the market. SONY did a outstanding job on the design of this set.

Everything about it
Really easy to setup took maybe 5-10 mins
The passive 3D seems to have good depth to it, even the simulated 3D looks impressive. (both in movies/tv and video games)
It has the ability for Audio return to your Home Theater Sound System for the television aps (HDMI audio return for the Sony Sync, or the Fiber for none Sony receivers).
The Option for wired or Wireless network connectivity is nice.
The ability to have the lighted Sony name plate perform different functions, off, interactive (only lights up when the TV receives commands from the remote or if the sleep timer is set), bright to dim.
A wide range of adjustments you can do to customize how you want your picture to look.
About every Application you can think of for the smart TV capability, one specific one I used so far was Hulu and it was like watching actual cable TV (the activation was simple).

Con: the display does appear to be more reflective that my other screen... But it is not too bad. I think this set would have really benefited from satin finished screen.

I can tell you your friends will want to come over to watch movies once they see this TV.
