Summary: I love my Sony Bravia the picture is crisp the sound is ok but I would hook it up to a home theater if I were you this is a consumer reports champion you will be satisfied! Oh yeah you won't buy this tv under 700 dollars at a store so use Amazon.com like I did!
Summary: I purchased my Sony BRAVIA KDL-40EX500 LCD TV in November 2011 through AMAZON.COM (fulfilled by HUPPINS, in this case). Already one model year old and fast disappearing, the KDL-40EX500 is PERFECT for my needs for One Simple Reason: analog audio outputs on the back (newer models in almost all manufacturers' lines only have TOSLINK out and hooking that up to my "legacy" stereo would require an adaptor).
Summary: I ordered 2 sony bravia tv's. I was a bit leery doing this having them shipped from Ca. to Ma. I was kept updated as to when they were shipped and intended day of arrival. In fact they arrived 2 days earlier. We love the tv's. Picture, sound everything is just what we wanted. I also was very pleased with how well they were packed, I would highly recommend this tv. The price was also excellent.
Summary: Purchased this TV in March and already have a dead pixel. I'm trying to ignore it, otherwise the TV is great. The set-up was easy and the picture, even in non-HD is awesome since making corrections to the factory color settings.
Summary: i do stop motion video animation professionally, and i have to say i reccomend watching a stop motion animated film on this set with the motionflow enabled... it's a joy to see the deliberate choppiness of the medium overruled by the televisions enhancements. i simply love it. and of course the cinema mode for traditional 24fps film is absolutely splendid as well.
