Sony 55" Black Ultra HD 4K LED 3D HDTV - XBR55X850B

Join the 4K revolution with four times more clarity than HD. Everything you watch—sports, TV shows, movies—is upscaled for 4K Ultra HD viewing and features Sony’s widest color spectrum ever created. Powered by TRILUMINOS display technology, true-to-life colors pop with stunning vibrancy. There’s even a One-Flick remote boasting a shortcut menu to your favorite videos on YouTube™ and more.

Features:

  • Four times clearer than HD
    The 4K Ultra HD screen contains over 8 million individual pixels that transform everything you watch into a life-like experience. Advanced picture processing also ensures that every single pixel displays images with superb brightness and authentic detail
  • Upscale everything you watch to 4K Ultra HD
    Suddenly, everything looks better. All of your existing HD sports, TV shows and movies are upscaled to super clear 4K quality. Even YouTube® clips and smartphone videos are enhanced with stunning results. The 4K X-Reality™ PRO picture engine analyzes and processes every image to refine color, clarity and detail for a beautifully natural picture
  • More brilliant expanded color
    Spoil yourself with the widest color spectrum we’ve ever offered on a television. Unique to Sony, TRILUMINOS Display technology creates incredibly true, natural shades of colors—just the way you want them. Hard-to-reproduce reds, aqua blues and emerald greens are displayed beautifully, so landscapes and seascapes look more vivid. Faces look better, too, with natural skin tones. It’s all thanks to a TRILUMINOS display that uses more colors to produce a more vibrant picture
  • The most feature films in 4K
    Add a Sony 4K Ultra HD Media Player (FMP-X10, sold separately) for exclusive access to the Video Unlimited 4K service, which hosts the largest selection of feature films and TV episodes in 4K Ultra HD for the home.

There's also 500px for viewing breathtaking professional photos in 4K and PlayMemories Online to share your personal photos. Lastly, they also support the latest HDMI to connect external media players (sold separately), and 4K/60p playback for viewing 4K sports in the future

  • Find everything faster
    An even faster way to find what you want. With ‘One-Flick’ on the remote you can instantly pull up a short cut menu that lets you navigate to your favorite TV channels, networked photos, and online videos from YouTube™, Crackle™, and Video Unlimited

Add your Skype® video chat to the TV screen and cheer together when your favorite team scores. To add tweets on screen, choose a hashtag, and see comments relating to your show flow across the screen
  • Lifelike motion
    Tired of the watching TV that can’t keep up with real life movements? Sony’s Refresh Rate Technology allows fast moving action sequences in movies and sports to be lifelike and smooth. Every movement—like seeing the football flip end to end on a kickoff—appears with true, fluid motion and minimal judder
  • Your smartphone, now on TV

      Comments about Sony 55" Black Ultra HD 4K LED 3D HDTV:

      This TV shines with high def signals 720p, 1080i,and 1080p. Upscales all to 4K (3840x2160). WiFi works good , but I'm limited with speeds thu my provider. Some say they cannot see the difference. I'll tell you ,I do . It's so much more clear. Like looking thu a window at times. Very easy to set up. Played with picture set up for about a week , to get it the way I like it. To me that's the key ,the way you like it. I have a dark room so set up would be different then a room with a lot of light . remotes work good. But I use a Harmony Touch control, which works fine for all units. Sony , in my opinion makes a great TV. Sound is good , I do use a AVR most of the time . ABT is good , Shipping was a little slow, It was the Holidays ,so I can't blame them. Nice people to talk to and can answer all questions, online or call.

          Comments about Sony 55" Black Ultra HD 4K LED 3D HDTV:

          Great TV. Wish Sony still made a 60" flavor of this as the 55 is a bit small for my wall, and 65" is too large. Otherwise great TV, great picture. Glad I chose this one over the Samsung. The only two complaints would be the media remote being slightly too sensitive to the touch, but I think there is a setting for this I have not found yet. Also the TV speakers are almost non existent, as with most slim TVs these days.

                  Great picture, easy access to netflix. We replaced a tv of he same size and are happy with the investment. The picture is great! We are still learning about all the features. I guess we need a 3D player to watch 3D Netflix movies and blue ray movies but that's not really a reason we purchased this tv.

                    Overall the picture is fantastic. Of course live sports or shows are a little less clear, but overall it produces a very clear & rich picture.

                      Picture is crystal clear. Movies on Blue Ray are near theater quality!

                      Great picture. We compare this TV to Samsung 55' 4k UHD TV and found Sony had a crispier image with more natural colors. Samsung seemed better for sports and live action (more saturated vivid colors but much less naturally looking for everything else). We use this TV in our moderate/large size family room with a Polk sound bar. This setting is great for occasional entertainment and family time. Using the included IR blaster we can control our cable box. There are many settings to customize your experience, but getting to know where they are located, what they are for and how to adjust them can be daunting. The i-Manual provides minimal information at best. The media center and navigation/guide are annoying and the media center lacks many apps. One of the most annoying issues is how long it took to update its software. Maybe Sony servers were very busy (our connection is blazing fast) but it took 5 attempts and over 2 hours to update the TV software out of the box. If we have to do this frequently, it will get old pretty fast.

                      Bought this TV to replace my older plasma. Great image quality and very attractive design. If i had one complaint that would be built in speakers. Definitely need to use it with Home Theatre System. I recommend Sony because it has very simple set up and you can use the same remote for Tv and Home Theatre.

                      This TV has amazing color and picture quality. I love watching movies on here and sports is fantastic. The TV looks great on my TV stand and will eventually be on the wall.

                      The only negatives are the lack of quality apps for a smart TV, missing HBO GO is a big one and the media server is very glitchy. The remotes are frustrating as they will not control the volume of my home theater system as they cannot be reprogrammed and are only meant for use with Sony AVRs. This is very frustrating as it is such a simple feature that goes a long way and is very annoying to not have.
