The KDL-W900A packs in Quantum Dots at $3,299.

While Sony continues to talk 4K, 2013 sees the company offering a host of other TV models and features. 2013's W series consists of three Wi-Fi enabled LED Bravia TVs, and each includes Sony's X-Reality PRO picture processor, screen mirroring via Wi-Fi, and MHL compatibility.

Stepping beyond the respectable KDL-W820A and KDL-W650A is the KDL-W900A, which is coupled with a pair of active shutter 3D glasses. Of greater significance is the 55" TV's new back-lighting system, built around Quantum Dot technology, which should see the display boast a superior color gamut. Also included is a NFC remote, which works with NFC phones and tablets for content streaming. The remote is an option for the KDLW820A.

The KDL-820A is available in 55" and 47" screen sizes and starts at $1,799. The KDL-W650A is a 32" model and is priced at $799.

Sony's new R series includes a passive 3D LED line and 3D-less versions. The KDL-R550A is the 3D LED Wi-Fi connected line and includes four pairs of passive glasses. It comes in 70", 60" and 50" sizes, and starts at $1,399. The non 3D version, the KDL-520A comes in 70" and 60" sizes and starts at $1,999. Both lines include Sony Entertainment Network Services (access also to Netflix, Hulu, Pandora and more,) and wireless screen monitoring.

Also in the R series are smaller displays. The KDL-46R453A, HDL-40R450A and KDL-32R400A can screen mirror using an optional MHL Cable, and start at $399.
