Sony Bravia KDL55W805 LED HD 1080p 3D Smart TV, 55", NFC with Freeview HD

Product information

To see all that this TV has to offer, please drop by a branch and ask a Partner for a demonstration.

The Sony W8 series offers a more connected smart TV experience than ever with the power of NFC. Enjoy sharp 1080p viewing and immersive 3D along with all the benefits of catch up TV and Wi-Fi. Unique ‘Sense of Quartz’ design creates an almost edge-to-edge look while the custom stand brings a premium metallic finish. Integrated upscaling enhances even standard definition content and online video clips to near-Full HD quality.

Key benefits:

  • Enjoy content from your smartphone on your TV screen. There’s no tricky set-up. Simply place your NFC one-touch mirroring enabled smartphone against the supplied one-touch remote to display photos, videos, music, games and apps from your phone on your TV.

  • Warmer colours and enhanced contrast - X-Reality PRO adds an extra dimension of image clarity to everything you watch. Drawing on a database of visual information, it analyses and enhances every image, it’s especially good with faces and skin tone.

  • ’Sense of Quartz’ design combines a smooth surface and cut-glass edges with high quality materials. Floating over a circular stand, it also feature an Intelligent Core that gently illuminates and changes colour according to the source of the content.

  • Built-in Bass Reflex Box speakers direct sound towards you, delivering extended low frequencies and clear, sparkling highs. Slim and compact, they minimise vibration and resonance too.

  • Enjoy a huge range of free digital TV and radio channels, including HD programmes, without subscriptions through integrated Freeview HD. There’s no contract and no need for a set-top box or satellite dish. It’s all easily accessible using just one remote control and your external TV aerial. To watch Freeview HD broadcasts you’ll need to check that you can receive it in your area.

  • Dynamic Edge LED backlighting dims and brightens specific areas of the screen for enhanced contrast and more natural colours.

  • With Passive 3D technology, you’ll enjoy more immersive entertainment, as well as the comfort of using lightweight 3D glasses.

  • The TV SideView feature lets you use your smartphone or tablet as a remote while learning more about the programme you’re watching.

  • With Motionflow XR 400Hz sports and other fast moving action looks smoother and sharper.

  • Access to the Sony Entertainment Network opens up a world of apps, games and social networking options.

Sound Bars

With TVs getting slimmer and built-in speakers getting smaller - choosing the right sound system is more important than ever. Sound bars add that extra audio punch to all your movies, games and TV programmes. More affordable and easier to set up than a full size speaker system, they don’t compromise on quality either.

Q & As


Sony Bravia KDL55W805 LED HD 1080p 3D Smart TV, 55", NFC with Freeview HD 5 5 6 6
Fantastic TV We purchased this to replace our existing Sony TV! It's fantastic and my husband is over the moon with the surprise purchase 15 April 2014
Excellent TV, Fantastic Picture quality, Great 3D Picture quality First of all, I was not really looking at this but rather at the big brother the , the W905 but I went in store to see them demoed side by side and I couldnt see much difference so I ordered the 42" inches to replace a 32" Sony Bedroom TV and I was blown away by the Picture quality and clarity that I listed my 60" Sharp Tv on Gumtree and sold it in order to order this in 55" again. Yet Again I am still being blown away! if you are thinking about this or the W905 but worried about the money and the viewing angle on the w905 dont hesitate to go for this, You ll thank me later, I have never written a review in my life but I have spent so much time on John Lewis that I decided that it would be injustice if I do not write a review about this product. I have never been a fan of 3D viewing but with Passive 3D, I could watch a full lenght movie in 3D without being bothered about the glasses and also actually enjoyed the Movie! Netflix in FULL HD is absolutely detailed and sharp, so is HD youtube clips. I could search for youtube videos on my Nexus phone and play straight to the TV no issues. Please Please do not hesitate if you are contemplating this TV but buy and see for yourself. I will take expert reviews moving forward now with a pinch of salt as I have realised no 2 TV panels are the same. 01 April 2014
Excellent ... Excellent ... Excellent I bought this TV during Christmas and I am simply impressed with it. This TV is simply Awesome and the features for the price is outstanding. I was looking for a Plasma for 55" and I am glad that I bought this SONY 55" LED instead. The picture quality is very good and so is the overall appearance and build of the TV. 09 January 2014
sony 55 superb got to say this is absolutely superb,bevel round the edge of tv is kept to a minimum ,4hdmi with 1 being arc straight into my amp which makes things so simple ,looks and design are 5star,price will not be beaten if you include the 5 year gurantee and free dvd,tv also comes with 4sets of 3d glasses,anything you need to learn about the tv is all on screen just press the i-manual on the remote.picture quality 5 star.if hanging on wall even if you do not need to use the 4 hdmi i would still connect all the leads into them as trying to connect later could mean taking tv off of wall bracket which sometimes can be tricky. 01 January 2014
