|Sony KDL-55W900A Internet TV|
Sony KDL-55W900A is also a very sharp looking device thanks to its Quartz-cut design – slim panel with metal stand and very thin frame. The KDL-55W900A is very elegant and will be a very nice design touch in any room.
Sony KDL-55W900A is not only a Full HD 1080p TV but also active 3D TV with 3D Sync Transmitter, 3D Super-resolution, 3D Format Support and Simulated 3D.

All these apps are supported thanks to the built-in fast WiFi. Of course DLNA connection is also supported. Sony also used some clever interface for easily connecting your smartphone to the Sony KDL-55W900A and stream content on the big screen. You can also control different functions of the TV with your phone or tablet thanks to the TV SideView feature.

The sound produced by the Sony KDL-55W900A is also on a very good level and that is thanks to the two 10W speakers with Sound Enhancer and Sound Booster. There is also S-Force Front Surround 3D sound mode which I am using quite rarely on my Sony Bravia TV (don’t ask me why, it sounds a bit unnatural for me).
Of course Sony KDL-55W900A has plenty other useful features and new technologies but I decided to point out only the most important for this review.
Unfortunately the Sony KDL-55W900A has a pretty high price tag. You can find this 55-inch Internet TV for around $2300 (that’s the cheapest I could find online) which is quite a lot of money for a TV. But what a TV that is…
Another great Sony LED TV with Triluminos display is the smaller and significantly cheaper ($1500) Sony Bravia KDL-42W805.
