Rated 5 out of 5 by mathteachermike Seriously Beautiful Picture and TV
Great TV at an unbelievable price (for the quality of this TV).
I shopped hard for a new TV to put in our new house as the main "Movie Night" TV. I wanted a 4K set, but after looking at the 990s along side the 4K's at the Sony store, I honestly thought the pictures were indistinguishable from 8 feet and farther (I also felt the viewing angle on the curved set was a little better).
The Sales rep was pushing hard for the 4K models (and virtually all the models has big price cuts) but I couldn't take my eye off the 990, and considering I negotiated an extremely good deal (cash and no delivery needed) I walked out with the curved beauty.
Picture was spectacular out of the box, and the speakers are great (for TV speakers). The black levels during games and programming are especially good - I have not had the black level uniformity issue that some reviewers are mentioning. I wanted a Sony for the low latency in game mode - but the slight curve turned out to be really immerse and an unexpected bonus. My enjoyment level for both FPS's and racing games has been bumped up a couple of notches and I really can't imagine a better gaming TV - at least until 4K is supported on consoles.
Pros: Great looking, best non-4K picture you can get, two remotes, 4 sets of 3D glasses, wide viewing angles (counter intuitive considering its a curved TV), good speakers and an almost perfect TV for gamers. Great $/ quality ratio.
Cons: Glossy screen = not good in rooms where you don't have control over bright lights/reflections.
