Engadget Summary

Critics are calling the Bravia X900 series "the best TV we've ever tested" (TrustedReviews) and "the best TV ever made" (TechRadar), which should help explain why we've given it a score of 90. Why, then, have we also tagged it with a "Wait to Buy" status? Quite simply because, at a price of $5,000 and up, it's still much more expensive than virtually all other current TVs, including plenty that are nearly as good. Plus, since most of that higher price is due to the fact that the X900 is an Ultra HD TV series, and there's very little Ultra HD programming currently available, we recommend waiting a while before buying any UHDTV. Prices will come down as they become more common, and some cheaper ones may well be the next "best TVs" tested by the experts -- though if you have $25,000 to spare, and you pick up the 84-inch version of the X900, we know where we'll be going for our next "Game of Thrones" marathon.
