That is a much, much better looking set than last years. Personally prefer Plasma, but if I had been looking for an LED set last year then the slanting design and 'width of screen' stand on last years model would have been a show-stopper for me. Overall though, nice to see Sony back on form with their TV's after having lost their way for while.

agree plasma generally appears to be the better tv, but with my issues with my Panasonic tv still ongoing and not looking to be resolved soon I've been looking at alternatives that aren't Panasonic as I'm not sure i want the hassle again should I get an issue with my tv. Samsung top models I can count out because they have the silly stand design that uses the entire tv, my tv looks ok over hanging my av stand as it doesn't sit on the av stand, but having the stand and tv over hang, no thanks. Lgs lag is a problem as I'm a gamer, ideally a 50" would be enough, but this is only 7cm wider than the panny for an extra 5". That now brings it into serious contention when deciding what tv to buy should i ever get my current issue resolved! I'd buy in 6months as well hopefully once the prices have gone down a bit
havent translated it yet though

cheers bigboss, I have no idea how you did this
I notice that the 55W905A has a DVB-S tuner. Just wondering will it only upscale SD if its using its built in tuner? Will it also upscale SD from my Humax FoxSat which is connected by HDMI?
I'm having a DAB aerial installed shortly and wondering if its worth getting another cable run from the LNB of the dish in preparation for the 55W905A.
All HD TVs will upscale any source.
Would there likely to be any picture quality improvement over using the TV's internal tuner for Freesat compared with the Humax Foxsat?
If its unlikely or just marginal I'll just stick with the current setup and avoid the additional expense.
Is there any possibility that this model might finally allow full IP control via Ethernet (inc power on)? There were rumors about this at CES 2013 but would love to know if this has materialized. I rather think not with the lack of any mention on any reviews that I have seen to date.
I'm slightly disappointed by that it didn't get a 5 star rating but I think the review is fair. Fortunately, viewing angle isn't an issue for me given our room layout but it is for the vast majority of people. So the Sony is going to get the product of the year award but its not top of my shortlist. So I'm still looking forward to demo-ing it.
