The elegant Sony Bravia X900A isn't just another TV Video Transcript
Hello. I'm Luke Westaway for CNET here at CES in fabulous Las Vegas. Today, I'm taking a look at this, the Sony Bravia X900A is another 4K TV from Sony. So Sony are gonna be showing off some 4K TVs before but it's making them into some sizes that are bit more likely to fit inside your living room. Right here is a 65-inch version. The Sony's also making a 55-inch edition. So, being of the 4K resolution this screen has an absolutely astonishing number of pixels specifically 3840 by 2160. It looks really good, it's extremely colorful and as you'd expect, it's really, really sharp. Now this TV also does passive 3D, that's about something that Sony's traditionally being to into, but things the passive is gonna be okay for this television because of that really, really high resolution. So I think that when you pop the resolution watching 3D, you're not gonna loose too much detail. Passive 3D has some other advantages because the glasses were a lot cheaper and they don't require batteries. Being generous sort, Sony is throwing in 4 pairs when you buy the CD. Now that's not actually very much that you can watch in full 4K at the moment, so Sony's baked up scaling into its latest efforts. That means that if you're watching a blu-ray disc for example, it'll up the resolution to 4K. I've seen some demonstrations. It looks pretty good. Up scaling is never perfect. Hold on for the full review where we'll be really put it through its paces. The exciting new technology even extends to the remote control. Sony's got NFC Technology inside the remote. So if you have a smartphone that has that near field communication technology, you can tap your phone against the remote and put what's on your phone on the TV. That's pretty useful if you've got movies stored on your mobile for example. If your phone doesn't have NFC then you can still export the view on to the TV using wifi screen mirroring. Now, the design here is likely to prove device if personally, I'm not really blown away by these chunky bezels but Sony's packed really, really massive speakers into this side of this display so you never know it might have really good built-in sound. Now, there's no price yet but expect this to be extremely expensive even though it's a bit smaller than Sony's existing 4K TVs. It's coming out in the spring, so we don't have very long to wait to find out exactly how good it is and how much it'll cost. 4K is really interesting. I think it looks really good. Personally, I think it's a bit more exciting than 3D has been in the past. So this is definitely one to keep an eye on. I'm Luke Westaway for CNET at CES and this is the Sony Bravia X900A.

Albeit expensive and plagued by issues in 3D, the beautifully styled Sony KDL-NX720 outpaces the picture quality of most other edge-lit LED-based LCD TVs.
Although its black levels challenge the best ever, some other picture-related aspects of the Sony XBR-HX909 series don't live up to the high price.
The higher price of Sony's KDL-32M4000 will turn off many 32-inch LCD comparison shoppers, even though it's blessed with attractive looks and a solid picture.
As the first large-screen edge-lit LED-based LCD, Sony's KLV-40ZX1M looks stunning turned off, but it falls short when powered up.
