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: Bought this TV recently and so far I am very impressed. The picture on this tv is excellent. It exceeds my expectations for a Television. Even non-HD channels look like there in HD. The only problem with this TV is the sound is not that good. Hook up a surround sound system and I see no flaws in this TV. !.........
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: My Sony bravia died in less then 9 months. Only 2 senior citizens in the house. Sony will NOT stand behind their product. All they will do is send me a refurbished model and they are making me jump thru hoops to get even that. I have to give my credit card number to some stranger, so that they can charge the cost of the refurbished model to me if I do not send them back the broken model in 15 days. I live in Montana-it takes 15 days to get mail here!
