Pixels Matter
This television can produce a common resolution of 3840x2160 pixels. This resolution is often called 4K resolution. Higher resolutions are typically associated with better quality picture on the TV. The screen resolution is the biggest aspect of the TV that shapes the overall quality of the picture that is displayed. It should be noted that vertical refresh rate, type of backlighting and LCD panel type are some of the other features that may contribute to the quality of the picture on the Sony XBR55X900E TV.

The Hook-ups
How you connect to your Sony TV is important. The Sony XBR55X900E is produced with 4 HDMI ports , 1 component input , 1 composite input , 3 USB ports , 2 audio-out port , 1 RF cable input , 1 ethernet port and WiFi. Most TV manufacturers offer four HDMI ports on their devices. Sony happens to be one of them. The old composite style connections are hardly supported by manufacturers due to the fact that it is considered old technology as it pertains to the quality of televisions of today. Newer than composite, component inputs are still useful because they are able to handle higher definition transmissions than composite connections. This particular TV has wireless capabilities which means you are able to connect wirelessly through your home router to the Internet. This opens up an endless world to explore through your Sony TV. An Ethernet port gives you a faster way to connect to the Internet. Connecting through an Ethernet port is much more reliable and will typically be faster than WiFi. All in all, the hardware of a television can be just as important as the size of the screen or its resolution. HDMI ports, internet connections, and even the audio in connections will determine what kind of shows you watch as well as the quality. Buying your perfect television can be difficult. You should always investigate the TV in its entirety, not just the screen size!
