- Sony X900C
The thinnest 4K TV Sony has built, this 55” ultra-slim Ultra HD 4K television provides breathtaking picture quality whether you are watching television, an action film, or gaming.
The X900C series is only 4.9mm thick (or should I say thin)—this achieves an unheard of mixture of functional and form beautifully. Sony’s edge-coating technology allows the display’s flush surface to essential make the bezel invisible. The image on screen appears to float, making the viewer forget that they are looking at a television screen—the stunning 4K almost literally pops from the screen in native 4K.
You truly have to see how thin this 55” flat screen is in profile view to believe it. Due to the ultra-slim design, you can simply place your 4K TV on the wall with a U-shaped bracket, which is tiltable and versatile, allowing you to tilt the TV in the direction you want.
If you wish to place it on a stand, the included 2-position stand allows you to adjust the feet that support the TV depending on the width of the surface you place your TV on—for example, you can attach the feet at the very ends of the bottom of the television set if you have a wide surface as wide as your television set—or, if you are placing your Sony TV on a surface that is not as wide as the TV, not to worry, you can adjust the feet, so that they support the television more towards the center of the screen, so you can fit this TV nearly anywhere.
With a 4K Processor X1, this chip brings a picture quality that is stunning. This chip analyzes and upscales every source to the best 4K resolution possible, from TV broadcasts, to DVDs, Blu-rays, and 4K internet videos. The X1 also allows for Precision Color Mapping, which optimizes colors individually in real time and provides natural and rich results on screen.
Whatever you are watching with the X900C, you will view it in a life-like and incredible resolution. This will make action movies and your favorite TV shows even more entertaining than they were in regular HD.
This extraordinarily thin and high-tech 55” 4K Smart TV by Sony is probably the most impressive 4K television out there. The X900C is a new and exciting series, and starting at $1,699, it is within reach for those who want to go above and beyond the normal 4K televisions, but do not want to spend more than two thousand dollars.
