Sony XBR-55X900B LCD/LED Ultra HDTV

Sound & Vision Magazine
21 October 2014
  • Summary: Short of sitting very close, you’ll need a screen bigger than 55 inches to see the full benefits of 4K resolution. But the XBR-55X900B is, nevertheless, a champion in all respects, including one we didn’t anticipate: state-of-the-art edge-lit local dimming.
  • Pros: Exceptional blacks and shadow detail, Excellent color and resolution, Impressive sound with optional subwoofer
  • Cons: Price, Small screen for 4K

Sony XBR-55X900B

PC Magazine
7 July 2014
  • Conclusion: With a robust built-in sound system, the Sony XBR-65X900B is one of the best 4K HDTVs you can buy right now, but until 4K content becomes widely available, it's not worth the high cost.
  • Pros: Bright picture with accurate colors. Attractive design. Powerful sound system. Lots of features.
  • Cons: Expensive. Poor black levels for the price. 4K content selection isn't compelling yet.

Sony XBR-55X900B Review

Digitaltrends
3 June 2014
  • Conclusion: We’re astonished the X900B isn’t Sony’s flagship television … it certainly looks and sounds the part. That this television is able to achieve such excellent black levels and avoid so many edge-lighting pitfalls is a testament to Sony’s engineering chops.

Sony XBR-55X900B Review – 55-inch 4K Ultra LED HDTV

30 May 2014
  • Excerpt: Sony has designed this 4K UHD TV using the innovative Wedge Design. Here, the display screen is thin at the top and gradually thickens towards the bottom creating enough depth for the side-mounted speaker system. This makes a perfect shape to save space in the room.
