The Sony KDL-65W950B brings in impressive high definition imaging over 1080p resolution and is capable of streaming internet content. More than often, it has been referred to be the “ultimate” TV experience and there are good reasons for it. Talking about the picture quality, the colors delivered by the KDL-65W950B really seems to breathe life and makes the 65 inch screen come alive. Whether its volcanoes you are watching in National Geographic or tuning into your favorite sporting event, the details in colors are so close to real life imagery. What helps the output in the KDL-65W950B is a collaboration of several interesting features. Firstly, Triluminous Display technology brings in a huge color gamut to work with. It’s like having color pencils of all saturations levels and hues. Compared to conventional LEDs, the output is really engrossing with this model. The KDL-65W950B also has an Extended Dynamic Range Pro capability. While the Triluminous display takes care of the color pellets, this feature on the other hands brings out deeper blacks and white. The shadow details are so true to life that the whole image on screen is exactly what one would see with his own eyes. To compliment the display further, we have a Passive 3D integration. All these features are facilitated by a powerful X-Reality Pro Engine. Processing is very fast and this also eliminates any judder or vibration (the so called Soap Opera effect) from the images. Other technologies involve Motionflow XR 480 and Edge LIT backlighting that facilitates breathtaking images.

While the picture quality is certainly the best in the Sony KDL-65W950B, it is rightly complimented by high quality sound, smart features and a full range of connectivity options. If you have the budget, this is the exact TV you should be bringing home.
