Today we are looking at the this awesome Sony 4K 900A UHD TV.

At first glance this 4K TV has all the bells and whistles you truly need to enjoy an awesome experience.  This model is a fraction of a cost of the first few models that came out and is made in a better fitting package as it’s 55 Inches instead of the earlier mammoth 85″ inch models that came out.

Overall the design is cutting edge and we couldn’t find many faults or customer objections out there.

This is a great 4 UHD TV and if you;re in the market to buy, it’s a great model.

The Picture Quality

It’s hard to go wrong here.  The 3,840 x 2,160 resolution with the LED screen makes the picture quality on this thing look amazing.  If you’ve only previously used a standard LED TV or even an HD TV you’ll simply drool when you see the picture quality and clarity on this.  A reminder: The resolution is 4 times that of the top HDTV!

This model also includes Sony’s LifeMotion technology and TRILUMINOS technology.  This makes the images appearing on the screen look extremely realistic and all the colors in the spectrum look beautiful.

The Sound Quality

On this review the sound from the front faced 65 watt speakers actually sounds great.  Most TVs (even the HD TVs suffer from poor sound quality.  This model did not suffer one bit.  However, as with all 4K UHD TVs and HDTVs you’ll enhance your experience with a sound system. However, since this review is only judging sound quality from the actually model itself; it’s great for a 4K UHD TV model.

The Sony 4K 900A TV model features 4 built in speakers (2 large 20 watt, 2 small 12.5 watt).  This creates a more vibrant sound than the TVs that have a small sound bar below the picture and blows TVs with rear facing sound, away.

The Features

The features on this are many.  It comes with what you typically would expect for a 4K TV or even an HD TV.   It comes with built-in-wireless so you can seamlessly stream Netflix, Amazon Instant, Hulu, etc.  It also allows you to wirelessly connect to your smart Phone.  This means whatever media is on your smart phone can be accessed onto your TV.

3D enabled.  If you own or want to own 3D movies and games then this model is already equipped to handle it.  However, the UHD TV doesn’t suffer from the many issues that most 3D TVs have suffered from.  I.e. you can sit within 3 feet of this TV and none of the picture will distort.

4 pairs of 3D glasses included.  When you want to watch 3D TV you’ll need glasses, 4 are included.  Of course, if you’re not watching 3D TV on it then the glasses are not required.

Skype enabled.  Love using Skype?  You can do it right from your TV.  This is a cool feature for the Skype fans out there.

Over All Look

I wish we could find something bad to say about this TV here.  But, we can’t.    The over all look and feel to the design is futuristic and beautiful.  This UHD TV is black, thin and sleek in design.

There really is not more to say about the look, it’s a gorgeous TV.

The Biggest Question, Price?

At release time this model is about $4999.99 (check current price here – make sure to select 55 inch).  This price is way down from the earliest 4K TV models (about $25,000).  So at the current price, it’s hard to be upset about it.  Yes, the price is more than the cost of a standard 3D HDTV but when it comes to 4K and what you get; it’s right where it should be.
