Simply Stunning.
5 Star Review   By stevesmith1971 on Sony - Official Store - Mar 4, 2014   

Where do I start when it come's to the 55W900A? First I will start with the design. A thin quartz cut border, gloss screen, chrome pedestal gives the tv a beautiful and elegant design which makes it a show piece in any living room. At the heart though of the W900 is its picture quality which is simply stunning in every way possible. I don't know if its because of the Triluminous feature or what but the colors just pop with life like Realism, its like your looking out a window. With the W900 Sony went out of its way to make one of the best HDTV's I have ever owned. Its a work of art, its a master piece of technology and to me its simply stunning. I am a proud owner of the W900 and for those that are on the fence about buying one? Get it because you wont be disappointed. Oh and on a side note.....3D movie watching never looked as good as it does when watching 3D on the W900.

Arguably the Best LED Set Money can Buy!
5 Star Review   By TheBlackPigeon on Sony - Official Store - Feb 21, 2014   

Being an avid gamer, I was looking for an HDTV that could stand up the demands of today's gaming platforms. Sony has advertised that, according to Cnet, their w900a HDTV is "The Best HDTV for Gamers". I am writing to confirm that this statement isn't just some bold attempt at advertising: it happens to be true. While I admit that I haven't spent a whole lot of time with the set, I can say with confidence that this HDTV is absolutely incredible for anyone who is looking for a set to game on. The color reproduction and black levels are dangerously close to plasma quality, and setting the set into Game or Graphics mode delivers a lightning fast 17ms of input lag, which makes it ideal for fast paced FPS and fighting games. If you're looking for an HDTV for your game room, or bedroom, or whatever, I strongly suggest you plop down the dough for the w900a. You will be glad you did!

Greatest 1080p LED money can buy!!!
5 Star Review   By mvs6382 on Sony - Official Store - Dec 26, 2013   

This picture is mind blowing! I was going to purchase a panasonic 55" vt series plasma, until I found this one. The color reproduction is amazing, I thought it was a plasma at first the picture had so much depth and the blacks were so dark. Add in the response of the picture and i was sold, i am so happy with this tv.

Superb Picture & Quality

WOW!
5 Star Review   By JoeinAV on Sony - Official Store - Nov 3, 2013   

This one word is all I have been saying all day & night after the installation of this TV. It is by far the best TV I have ever owned. It replaced a 6 year old Sony (which was amazing in its day). First, the TV itself is a work of art. It looks amazing on the wall among my modern decor. When it is on, the picture blows you away. The 1080p shows on my Apple TV come in unlike they never did before (& I had a 1080p Sony TV). Directv channels mostly in 1080i are amazing as well. I love the colors on this TV (using the default settings). I highly recommend it! One piece of advice if you use Directv. After the installers left, I noticed all Directv channels were coming in at 480i (use the display button). I knew that CNN (& others) were broadcast with 1080i, so I started to get concerned. The settings within the Directv box have to programed to allow your TV to display the various HD signals. Be sure you check these settings, otherwise you may not be displaying the highest quality.

Good TV
3 Star Review   By Ramuss on Sony - Official Store - Sep 29, 2013   

The screen is too reflective to ambient room light. The screen is as reflective as a plasma. The genius that decided to put a chrome stand on this tv should be fired. It reflects light just like the screen . I expected more for my money from this tv.

Great HDTV!
5 Star Review   By LexingtonJohn on Sony - Official Store - Sep 27, 2013   

Hooked it all up, change video setting to "Vivid" and have enjoyed it since. Apps work great, HD from Netflix looks great. I assume Amazon and Sony will be just as good when used.

Very Good TV
4 Star Review   By Pathfinder on Sony - Official Store - Sep 25, 2013   

Bought this to replace an older XBR that had a great picture. This one also has a very good picture, but can't believe that there are no audio out sockets to accept wires from older sound "bars" such as a Bose speaker that doesn't have digital outlets. Had to go to store and buy a ten dollar splitter to plug into earphone jack to make it work. How about that for a $2000.00 TV??

A different perspective
5 Star Review   By Orbe on Sony - Official Store - Sep 9, 2013   

There are already a fair number of detailed reviews from a picture and sound point of view, so I won't go there for the most part. Here is what I observed so far: -Screen mirroring works well. I have the latest (as of Sept 9th 2013) Intel WiDi software, and an Intel 7260 AC Adapter (it does wireless N as well) mirroring my screen from my desktop to the TV. Just make sure you set WiDi to discover "legacy" devices and it will find the TV. The lag is similar to other devices I have tried such as the Netgear Neo TV Max. -DLNA works as expected for music and movies, I am using Windows 8. The streaming is smooth. -The Wired / Wireless network setup is simple. The wireless is good enough so I removed my wired Ethernet connection. -Some of the Apps are useful, most have limited value IMO. -I used the Disney WOW Blu-Ray to calibrate the TV, it didn't require much adjustment from the factory for my situation. -The TV is okay as a computer monitor. I have the Logitech K400r (2.4 GHz) wireless keyboard plugged into my desktop computer. The TV doesn't accept the USB receiver directly. I use Miracast to mirror the display. -The TV works well for sports. -Yes the audio from the optical out is 2.1, I hope you have an HDMI ARC port on your AVR. -The TV dropped in price since I bought it in the 30 day window, and Sony was great about their price protection guarantee. -The TV's firmware updates are easy. Not sure why the Manual on the website talks so much about doing it via USB when it can be done over the web. -YouTube via your phone to the TV works great. - Wish the TV supported a remote control app for iPhone/Android. It would be easier to key in information when using a Smart App. Wireless keyboard support would have been nice too. The YouTube phone pairing is an exception of course. -The IR and Bluetooth Remotes are great. Just enough buttons. - The Sony logo light up front is not that brilliant and can be turned off if need be. I like it because it glows when receiving input from the remote control. -3D seems to work well, but I just tried it out for fun, I am not a serious user of 3D content. -The TV appears to be well made, I love the minimalistic stand. -I bought it straight from SonyStyle and it arrived on time and in good condition. -The audio is fine, nothing great or bad. - The TV stand has a metal infrastructure, and chrome looking plastic exterior. - The screen is glossy, can't wait for Corning to commercially release their non-reflective glass, looks like 2015 or beyond. -The TV is in a room with numerous large windows and it works well in a bright room. -I just wished they made a bigger version of this same TV. - I bought it just in time for football!

WOW - Fantastic TV
5 Star Review   By RSDC on Sony - Official Store - Aug 28, 2013   

After mistakenly taking a friend's advice, I purchased a cheaper non-Sony tv. After a few days I realized I was dissatisfied with the picture quality. I replaced the "other" TV with the W900a. This set has the WOW factor and the picture quality that I'm used to from my older XBRs. I couldn't be happier. Great set. Streaming actually works for pics, vids and songs.

Sony is Back on Top
5 Star Review   By AJHouston on Sony - Official Store - Aug 27, 2013   

I have strayed away from Sony TV's after having the XBR4 as my last great Sony. The SXRD I owned was troublesome. But I will Say this TV by far puts the competition to shame. My only decision was do I buy the 70 inch "R" model or the 55 inch "W". I decided to go with the 55 W model and couldn't be happier. It looked good out of the box but I calibrated it with the "WOW" calibration disc and what a picture! I Can't say enough about the brilliance of the picture.

In A Class Of It's Own
5 Star Review   By travelerjb on Sony - Official Store - Aug 26, 2013   

I had the opportunity to check out all the large LED tv's right next to each other on several different sources from HD Video to High resolution photography and among the top Samsung, Sharp and LG tv's out there the 900 series was head and shoulders above them. The dynamic range differences were obvious and not subtle at all. Rendering of blacks and details in which there was significant discrepancies between light an dark were rendered far better on the Sony. After several weeks of ownership each time I fire it up I am amazed at what it delivers. Be it HD Satellite or Blu-Ray I'm not sure I will bother to go to the movie theater any more. If you are looking for a NO compromise TV and don't wish to step up to the 4K THIS is clearly THE tv to own

A long wait, but worth the wait
5 Star Review   By hnc001 on Sony - Official Store - Aug 20, 2013   

Purchased the TV approximately one month ago. Needed to replace Sony KDS-R50XBR1 for about seven months. While researching found the KDL-55W900A and was impressed enough to wait it out for release of the TV. During the waiting time I researched many other TCV's and compared specifications and read reviews , the KDL-55W900A just kept rising to the top of the list. Finally after too long of a wait, the TV was released, but I could not find one to view in person. After another three weeks or so I finally found one for viewing and I was not disappointed at all and purchased the TV on the spot. The colors were great and the typical Sony picture made the KDL-W900A a clear winner to my eyes. Maybe not the most pop or glitz but by far the most pleasing picture for viewing. I have had Sony XBR's for over twenty years and I was hesitant to purchase anything else but the price of the current XBR's was simply out of reach, I must say that this TV has not disappointed. An external speaker system is pretty much a must as the volume has to be turned way up for comfortable listening, but that is probably the price the thin design.

XBR-55X900A
5 Star Review   By fpricketts on Sony - Official Store - Aug 20, 2013   

Pros: Striking colors, bright picture, amazing adaptable 3D, motion flow is awesome on new HD movies... integration of wifi and internet is EASY! Cons: None whatsoever Like the reviewer before me, I read many online reviews that tried to make me skeptical about buying this TV. After going to the Sony store in Stanford mall and then comparing to the Panasonic plasma at Fry's and Bestbuy (which they said was the greatest TV ever), I wanted the Sony hands down no doubt about it. I have absolutely no regrets after having the 900A TV in my living room for the last 3 weeks. I just don't agree with the reviewers. My 13-year old daughter feels the same way. She went with me and looked at the 3-4 TVs that were top of the line and she agreed on her own, this was the best TV (if you don't by a Sony 4K TV that is).

Triluminicious!
5 Star Review   By Oldmanriver on Sony - Official Store - Aug 20, 2013   

This is my family's fifth Sony HDTV panel. (The two oldest models were donated to non-profit organizations still in good working order.) Stepping up in size from 46" to 55" class was an easy and pleasing transition due to the ultra thin edge and profile of this unit. The larger image area and dramatically articulated color reproduction of the "Triluminous" technology has boosted the value of our entire Blu-ray movie disc collection by rendering non-remarkable looking older movies like "Patton" at the next level of stunning realism with an immensely pleasing color palette that was never seen in theaters. I'll admit that I was highly resistant to the idea of 3D HDTV technology. How clever of SONY to include four sets of active 3D glasses with this unit! The design of the 3D active glasses actually works flawlessly and comfortably over my prescription glasses. They are simple to activate and operate with blinking LED feedback on the bridge piece of each pair. Popping in a never used 3D version of "The Avengers" that was purchased during an Amazon promotion made us immediate believers. The slight neutral density filter lens color does not significantly decrease either the color or brightness of the 3D HDTV image. The immersive experience surprised us all well beyond our wildest expectations. Normally I might consider buying a premium model from last year's Sony HDTV lineup at a discount due to my value orientation. But this unit caught my attention as currently the only non-4K model to feature the critically acclaimed "Triluminous" technology featured in the ultra-premium Sony HDTV panels. The current discounted pricing (relative to the original release MSRP) created a compelling premium product value. I have never experienced buyer's remorse with any of our high-end Sony products. That tradition continues.

Gorgeous TV
4 Star Review   By drizzotto on Sony - Official Store - Aug 20, 2013   

The colors are truly impressive (almost too impressive) and they've even (finally) managed to make motion flow somewhat meritous. Software is somewhat buggy (neftlix won't exit) but I didn't get the TV for the apps The slim outline and subtle quartz bezel make it a stunning display piece, but the base is a little large. If you can get a good deal on it, this is a superb television

Brilliant picture quality for ALL viewing options (movies, cartoons, sports, action scenes, 3D). The colors that come out of this TV with the TRILUMINOS display are truly amazing!!! The colors are so vibrant and deep and just seem to pop right off the screen.

The colors were great and the typical Sony picture made the KDL-W900A a clear winner to my eyes. Maybe not the most pop or glitz but by far the most pleasing picture for viewing. I have had Sony XBR's for over twenty years and I was hesitant to purchase anything else but the price of the current XBR's was simply out of reach, I must say that this TV has not disappointed. An external speaker system is pretty much a must as the volume has to be turned way up for comfortable listening, but that is probably the price the thin design.

Gorgeous TV
4 Star Review   By drizzotto on Adorama - Aug 20, 2013   

The colors are truly impressive (almost too impressive) and they've even (finally) managed to make motion flow somewhat meritous. Software is somewhat buggy (neftlix won't exit) but I didn't get the TV for the apps The slim outline and subtle quartz bezel make it a stunning display piece, but the base is a little large. If you can get a good deal on it, this is a superb television

WOW!!!
5 Star Review   By mk888 on Adorama - Aug 20, 2013   

Brilliant picture quality for ALL viewing options (movies, cartoons, sports, action scenes, 3D). The colors that come out of this TV with the TRILUMINOS display are truly amazing!!! The colors are so vibrant and deep and just seem to pop right off the screen.

Sony is back as leader by far!!!!
5 Star Review   By Chris2 on Sony - Official Store - Aug 19, 2013   

Bought this beauty on June 25th 2013 in a Florida Store. Honestly I did not have an idea that this product existed. More than that: I went to the store to take a look to other 2 brands that my friends recommended. I happened to ask a sales supervisor a very candid question: what would TV YOU buy? He didnt say anything, just asked me to see the KDL-55W900A. All I could say was wow this is what I am looking for!. I had previously been taking a look at some other brands in the same store. Just to double check I went back and saw all other brands again and confirmed my choice by far. What else I can say. Internet connectivity is simply beautiful, my kids love this machine, my guests take note of the model... Sony is back!!!

Exactly what I wanted
5 Star Review   By kamaal100 on Sony - Official Store - Jul 18, 2013   

Before buying this TV, i was reading many online reviews and tech magazines, they all made me very skeptical about buying this TV. After Going to the Sony store and seeing this TV in person I was instantly sold. All the reviewers said that Panasonic had the best Tv but i was not that impressed, basically, if loving Sony is wrong, i don't wanna be right. I think this TV excellent, it met all my expectations and the 3D is amazing, I'm very happy with my purchase. Go Sony!

Outstanding picture
5 Star Review   By Grizzwind on Sony - Official Store - Jul 15, 2013   

Bought in May, at release date, Action and sporting events picture is crystil clear, and the colours are exeptional, especially the reds and greens. A pleasure to watch. Even the 3D active glasses do not give me a headach like the passive glasses do.

GOT COLOR?
5 Star Review   By rubxz on Sony - Official Store - Jul 13, 2013   

I use to have the 55W802A and was on the fence weather or not I was going take it back within the 30 day return period and spend that much more for this one with the Triluminos display. So glad I did because it is a world of difference! The color is phenomenal and it's so fresh every time I watch tv. The color on this display compares to the 4K's. So if you are in the market for a tv at a reasonable price then go for this one. You'll be glad you did.

Great TV
5 Star Review   By Sailor1 on Sony - Official Store - Jun 7, 2013   

I installed this abut 2 weeks ago and am amazed by the color quality obtained through tri-luminous. The reds and greens take TV to another level that should be seen before buying a new flat screen.
