I’ve finally bought Sony 55w905a a week ago. I’m glad that I’ve taken 55 inch version instead of 46. Now I think anything smaller than 55 won’t be satisfying for me).
For now I want to say that it definitely has got dse, banding and some clouding at corners. If it wasn’t for the price of 1200$, I would probably return it.
Viewing angle is very limited and you really have to sit directly in front of it, move 30 - 40 cm to the side and you get lighter blacks on the opposite side of tv.
What really made me happy about this TV is it’s impulse mode and low input lag, compared to my old Mitsubishi 930sb crt monitor it’s almost as fast.
I have compared this 55w905a side by side to other 4 display devices I've currently got: Mitsubishi 930sb CRT monitor, Benq gw2760hs a-mva monitor, Samsung 40b530 spva tv, Samsung 40eh5300 spva tv.
And after comparison I'm not happy with this Sony TV color reproduction.
Green color at 100% saturation is obviously not fully saturated. If you turn live color to low, it becomes fully saturated, but much shifted towards blue, which makes grass look a little unnatural.
Blue is undersaturated just a bit but it's hard to notice.
But what really disappointed me is Yellow!! It is definetly undersaturated too much, and nothing can help it. I've tried changing every single option in the menu in every mode. Even increasing color setting to the max did nothing to it.
I've even got into service menu and tried to change white balance, no luck.
All my other display devices displayed good saturated yellow.
I've added photo comparison to Benq gw2760hs va monitor(it's to the left with 55w905a to the right).
All I've said about colors can be seen in hdtvtest review, except yellow undersaturation looks much more dramatic than seen on their color scale.
It is very disappointing that a TV priced 3000$(when sales began) and having this widely advertised Triluminous tech actually can't reproduce colors as good as cheap old Samsung 40eh5300 spva tv (400$).
Does anybody know a way to fix this undersaturated yellow issue? maybe there is some setting in service menu I haven't found?
Does updating firmware change color reproduction in any way?
For now I think that it just can't reproduce saturated yellow due to this Triluminous tech.
