Product Details

Sony 55" Black LED 1080P 3D HDTV - KDL55W800B

Key Features:

  • Color, clarity and detail at their best with X-Reality™ PRO
  • Lifelike movement with Motionflow™ XR 480
  • Loud, clear surround sound and dialogue with Clear Audio+ technology
  • Stream HD entertainment wirelessly with built-in Wi-Fi®
  • Customize shortcuts for quick access to online videos
  • Follow tweets, Skype with friends and watch TV all at once


  • Color, Clarity and Detail at Their Best
    Introducing a picture so lifelike, it's like looking through a window. Images appear with natural color transitions and each scene in everything you watch shows crisp, clear detail. HD movies, sports, even YouTube™ clips and home movies burst off the screen with astonishing detail and color. Sony's X-Reality™ PRO picture engine draws on its extensive reality database to display more color, clarity and detail in every image.
  • Moves Like Real Life
    Golf balls roll clearly, with less blurring, as the camera follows them across the green. Footballs retain their detail and move smoothly as the camera quickly pans down the field during kickoff. Even fast moving action sequences like fight scenes appear amazingly realistic since Motionflow™ XR 480 takes motion clarity beyond refresh rates, which are only measured in Hz, to double the motion effect for lifelike clarity.
  • Hear What You've Been Missing
    Make what you hear as life like and clear as what you see via Sony's ClearAudio+. With a simple selection, easily fine-tune your TV sound to create an exquisite, emotionally engaging experience that surrounds you. Hear every detail of the music, dialogue and sound effects with greater clarity and separation that truly immerses you in the action on the screen.
  • Go Beyond Cable with Built-in Wi-Fi
    Wirelessly stream beautiful, HD entertainment straight from the Internet or your home network using built-in Wi-Fi® connectivity with ease. Open the door to the endless entertainment of the Sony Entertainment Network, where thousands of movies, TV shows, online videos, games and music are always on tap. Access Full 1080p HD entertainment, 3D content and made-for-TV apps like Netflix®, Pandora®, YouTube, Facebook® and more
  • Flick. Find. Fast.
    Discover a faster way to watch what you want with One-Flick Entertainment. Flick through TV channels, recommended videos, photos on your network, or even Internet content like YouTube, Crackle, or VideoUnlimited using the optional One-Flick remote control with touchpad. Even better, you can find your favorite content instantly with quick TV start-up and speedy app launch.
  • Photo Sharing Fun
    Gather your friends and family around the TV and experience the ultimate in picture swapping fun with Photo Share. Using your TV, a compatible Android™ or iOS device and your home wireless network, pass and share photos from your phone to the TV for everyone to see. Up to 10 people can then transfer the photo from the TV to their phones, tablets or other device, and share their own to keep the fun flowing.
  • The Difference is Dynamic
    It's all about perfecting a natural look. Sony's Dynamic Edge LED backlighting with frame dimming delivers pitch-black night scenes and illuminates bright scenes. Rather than illuminating the entire screen, contrast is boosted in just the right areas for a more realistic picture
  • Watch with the World
    Experience the fun together: enhance your TV enjoyment by following tweets from around the world with Social Viewing. Just choose your hashtag, and see comments relating to the show you're watching flow across the screen1. TV has never been so social. And, using an optional camera, you can add Skype® video on the screen at the same time to watch games together from nearly anywhere in the world

This TV is outstanding. The colors great. The blacks are black and the whites are white. Haven't tried the 3D yet. Sound is good for the size of the speakers. We use the surround sound when watching movies. No jump or jitter at all no mater what we are watching. Best when watched straight on. We are so happy with it. Our older Sony was moved to another room. Don't hesitate on this one it's a great buy.

The good is the picture: Sony has the most beautiful picture out there, rivaling all those 4D sets flooding the market, and anyone suggesting the black level is anything short of pitch black needs their eyes examined. The viewing angles are also extraordinary, as good as any of the high priced curved screens.The bad is the shiny screen; looks beautiful when turned off, but really reflective of lights and windows. The ugly is the menu and related functions, one thousand one, one thousand two, that is how long it takes to switch channels. Go into the "channels" icon to scroll more quickly and if you do not have your stations memorized, the "boxes" fly by so fast you cannot read them. Which takes you back to clicking the remote to advance to the next channel. Really? Such a fantastic TV dragged down with such poor user functions is a shame. Sorry Sony, you can do better.

Overall, a very good TV to own.


from Undisclosed

Comments about Sony 55" Black LED 1080P 3D HDTV:

The picture quality on this TV is nothing short of excellent and the sound is also very good. This is also the only TV where I actually like the preset picture modes. The only thing that I would change would be a little more consistency in how the local dimming works across the different picture modes.

Great T.V !

Comments about Sony 55" Black LED 1080P 3D HDTV:

I bought this a few month's ago, And let me say....WOW! Great picture. It was between this one and the Samsung led. And I'm happy I chose this one. I love everything about it.


Great sound!

      Comments about Sony 55" Black LED 1080P 3D HDTV:

      I expected Shoney's usual fantastic picture. Sony and Samsung are all I have owned for a number of years. This is about the eighth or ninth flatscreen TV I bought and the most notable difference after LAD picture is the tremendous sound. So unusual on flatscreen TVs! Honestly, unless you're a real audio file I don't think you even need a sound bar

      Comments about Sony 55" Black LED 1080P 3D HDTV:

      Let me start with the bad first. The viewing angle is just not good. I guess the main reason I don't like the viewing angle this TV has is because prior to this TV I owned a plasma screen so it wouldn't be fair to compare this TV which is a liquid crystal display vs a plasma. A plasma screen is always going to have a better viewing angle. Now onto the good about this TV. The picture quality is good for sports, video games, and movies. I highly recommend using the Cinema setting and then change it to meet your preference. The standard and vivid settings will not give you the best picture quality. Start with cinema and work from there. The sound quality is decent and by far better than the new 2015 Sony model (W800C). However, if you want a better experience make sure you pair this TV with a home theater system or a sound bar. If you're undecided between this TV and the 2015 model go with this one as it has better contrast, better input lag which is important for video games, and overall better picture and sound quality. The new 2015 models have Android TV but the viewing angle is even worst than this 2014 model. Overall this is a good TV.

      Service and delivery comments:

      I live in Florida. The tv was shipped from Illinois. It took them 7 days to deliver this TV. Not the fastest delivery but it was free so I can't complain.

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about Sony 55" Black LED 1080P 3D HDTV:

      There is only HDMI port, and no VGA port, I have tried all the methods of convertor available in the market but still cannot connect my laptop to the TV, not all the Laptop comes with HDMI port, At least Sony should have included a VGA port, and also the TV loads very slow when connected to Internet. Now I realize the mistake

      from Bronx, NY 10475, USA

      Comments about Sony 55" Black LED 1080P 3D HDTV:

      Had this for more than a month, more than enough time to properly tweak the settings (had experience with test patterns before) and can honestly say this set is a joy to watch. A superb picture in every way. I have a large collection of movies recorded onto DVD-R from stations like TCM-HD, HBO, etc. and was afraid the much bigger screen would bring out more of the limitations of these home made discs compared to my KD34XBR960 which recently needed to be replaced. So happy to say that isn't the case at all! Of course, not the replication of the original HD source but this set does wonders with an up-converted signal and an overall 7.5-8 comparison which is more than one could ask for. And though we did not purchase it for 3D, that is a a bonus. The simulated 3D is really surprising in it's effectiveness and we watch true HD on our on demand services that comes free with premium channel subscriptions. So we're now hooked on 3D as an extra feature to enjoy.


      Very Unhappy and Disappointed


      from 91326

      Comments about Sony 55" Black LED 1080P 3D HDTV:

      I have never been more frustrated with a television set than I have been with this Sony TV. The clarity of the picture is not what I was expecting from Sony. It's horrible! I tried for over a week to adjust the picture quality and nothing seems to be easy. I called my cable company to come out to see if it was a signal problem. He changed the cable box, added a signal amplifier and still looked like all the shows and scenes were filmed in an overcast day. I will never again buy a Sony television.

      Everything was great on the TV except the table stand that was supposed to double as mall mount bracket but did not work I had to buy the extra wall mount bracket .


      Pleased to date.


      from 97225

      Comments about Sony 55" Black LED 1080P 3D HDTV:

      After my 40" Bravia from 2009 this was a pleasant update. My choice was dependent on keeping my older Bravia working or basically smart/internet connected. Support was solid and helpful. I am glad Sony does not subscribe the Apple doctrine to leave their older models unusable to force new purchases. I bought this Sony specifically as a result of the support team actions to keep my older purchase alive and well.
