Sony KDL55W950B 55-Inch 1080p 120Hz 3D Smart LED TV

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.

Bring the immersive world of PlayStation directly to your TV with PlayStation Now (1,2). For the first time, discover and play PlayStation3 games by pairing a PlayStation DUALSHOCK3 controller directly to your PlayStation Now ready BRAVIA TV and start streaming games – no additional hardware required.

Sony’s exclusive X-tended Dynamic Range technology produces contrast beyond comparison. You’ll get unprecedented brightness and deeper detail even in the brightest whites or darkest blacks on the screen to deliver a truly brilliant picture quality (3). In the image shown, notice the difference in detail of the dark buildings combined with the brightness of the city lights. The difference certainly is dynamic.

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.

Suddenly, everything looks better. All of your existing sports, TV shows and movies are upscaled to super clear quality. Even YouTube clips and smartphone videos are enhanced with stunning results. The X-Reality PRO picture engine analyzes and processes every image to refine color, clarity and detail for a beautifully natural picture.

A new angle on TV design allows for larger speakers and enhanced sound capabilities over traditional LED televisions. The iconic design works with traditional wall mounts, and the adjustable TV stand accommodates large or small tables.

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.
