The W905A has had a hard-fought battle. While it excels in some areas, such as a blinding 3D performance, excellent detail in well-lit scenes and great usability, we can't turn a blind eye to the viewing angle difficulties we had and the loss of...

Overall the Sony KDL-46W905A is a very capable TV, which seems to fix some issues we noticed in the 55in version, but adopts a few of its own in the process. We love the layer upon layer of detail it shows, but the picture lacks the punch and natural...

Sony has built on the TV successes of 2012 in fine style with the 40W905A. There’s some strong competition out there for sure, but even so the 40W905A scores enough hits in enough places to at least make a case for it being the strongest 40-inch TV in town right now.

Although we love its local dimming, its NFC linking and its clean interface, we can't help but think Sony is slightly behind the curve with its W9 Series KDL-40W905A. Although we totally agree with its firm focus on picture quality over everything else,...

The KDL-47W805A delivers good pictures in brighter rooms and has very good standard-definition upscaling. Its mediocre black levels means it's not a great choice for evening movie viewing, however. It's also a tad expensive and its smart TV system...

When the light falls just right, Sony's W9 LED TV glints emerald, like something precious – which, indeed, it is. This 40in thinscreen follows hot on the heels of one of last year's finest LCD displays, the HW8, and seeks to maintains Sony's forward...

While Sony hasn’t quite kept pace with the feature innovations offered by Samsung and Panasonic, it’s unquestionably stolen a march when it comes to image quality. This Sony W9 screen sets a new benchmark when it comes to motion clarity and colour performance. Be it movies or games, this set shines with them all.

For reasons best known to themselves Sony decided not to release the HX955 in the UK last year, despite its availability in the rest of Europe. That left the HX853 as the de facto Sony flagship in the UK, although this was hardly a disaster as it was an...

The W9 is a great Sony TV that's just as good at 3D as it is at 2D. That said, we were expecting more out of this year's flagship model, which lacks black depth, has narrow viewing angles and presents risks of clouding, which is why we aren't giving it...

Gimmicks like gesture control and voice interaction don't get much of a look in on the new Sony W9 series high-end TV. Instead image quality dominates the agenda. A refined picture processing engine and Triluminos colour filtering mean this set delivers...

Sony's addition of Triluminos technology to an improved version of last year's groundbreaking local dimming/edge LED combination delivers pictures which are pretty much irresistible. And just for good measure, these stunning pictures are accompanied by...

The Sony KDL-40W905A is a good looker and delivers very strong video and audio performance. It's unfortunately rather let down by its lacklustre smart TV...

The bottom line: Sony's KDL-40W905A is a gorgeous LED screen with class-leading colour performance and motion resolution, and a design that's unashamedly lush. We really like the way the emerald green diamond cut bezel sets the TV apart from...

What is the Sony Bravia KDL-55W905A? So the big question for Sony's TVs in 2013 is simply this: how do you follow 2012's multi-award winning Sony Bravia HX853 series? One answer is to go 4K, as Sony will in just a couple of months time with the...

De W9 had als hd-topmodel hoge verwachtingen waar te maken en op veel vlakken heeft de tv dat ook gedaan. Het ontwerp van de tv is geslaagd en de afwerking is van hoge kwaliteit. De donkere metalen randen met hun groenblauwe gloed geven de tv een uniek,...

Sony introduceerde eerder dit jaar een groot aantal nieuwe televisies, waaronder de W805 en W905 topmodellen die beschikbaar zijn in beeldmaten tot 55 inch. Op de IFA kondigde Sony een nóg grotere televisie aan, de 65 inch grote 65W855. Qua technologie...
