Sony's top-end model, the LX900, is available in 60in and 52in sizes, and brings all of the company's high-end features into one very attractive package. The television is LED edge-lit, has a 200Hz refresh rate and provides wireless networking, DLNA media streaming, as well as BRAVIA Internet Video and BRAVIA Internet Widgets. This means you'll be able to stream standard definition and 720p high definition content from one of 15 available channels, including Yahoo!7, SBS and Billabong. The LX900 is the only series that has 3D capabilities out of the box, so you can watch 3D content as soon as you install your new TV. The LX900 comes with two pairs of custom glasses; pricing for additional glasses is yet to be confirmed.

As part of Sony's "Monolithic Design" philosophy, the 52in LX900 tilts upwards at an angle of six degrees. According to Sony, this provides an optimal viewing experience, though the TV will have to be installed on the provided stand on low-lying furniture. Of course, the LX900 is still wall-mountable, though you won't get the claimed advantages of the six degree tilt.

Plugging USB flash drives into the TV will also allow you to access MP3 files, JPEG and RAW photos as well as DivX, MPEG1, MPEG2, MPEG4 and AVC/AVCHD video formats.
