About - Sony Bravia XBR-65X900A

The Sony Bravia XBR-65X900A is a 65-inch LCD HDTV with a native resolution of 3840x2160. This TV has a 3D mode that requires the use of special glasses to see three-dimensional images. It has LED backlighting, a more energy-efficient type of backlighting. It also has a feature called local dimming (which can dim sections of the backlight while others remain brightly lit), which has the potential to improve black levels and contrast. Rather than the basic 60Hz, it has a faster 960Hz frame rate, a feature designed to reduce motion blur.

This model is Internet-enabled and can access online content, including streaming movie and TV services. It has an Ethernet jack for a wired connection to your home network via a cable. This TV is also Wi-Fi capable, so you can connect it to your home network wirelessly. It is DLNA certified, so you can view digital photos stored on a compatible computer, phone, or other mobile device also connected to your home network.

There are 5 HD-capable inputs: 4 HDMI and 1 component-video, which doubles as a composite-video input. It also has 3 USB ports, which may be used to play media--photos, videos, and music--stored on a flash drive or memory card reader on the TV.

The Sony Bravia XBR-65X900A measures 35.63 inches high by 66.25 inches wide by 16 inches deep, including its base. The panel itself is 4 inches thick including any protrusions, and the screen has a mirror-like finish. The bezel framing the screen is gloss black

The warranty on this TV covers parts/labor for 18/18 months, respectively. Other screen sizes in this model line include: Bravia XBR-55X900A (55"), Bravia XBR-84X900 (84")

Comment:
I use this HDTV in my high end home theater system. Really love it's 3D quality - passive glasses are so light you hardly know you're wearing them. It has one of the best pictures I've ever seen on a TV. Only issue is it's screen reflectivity - easily circumvented by proper positioning.
How long have you owned it:
More than six months
Bottom Line
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.
