Summary: I did a lot of research before deciding to buy this Sony TV. This is my first HD TV and is also the most I have spent on a TV, so I wanted to make the right decision. I should also say that I am not an expert on the color management of TVs, so I won't comment on those specifics. Overall, I am very pleased with this TV. It arrived promptly and was very easy to set up (I have a DirecTV DVR, DVD player and Wii console).
Summary: This is my first LCD and I have had this Sony for 4 weeks. We have definitely enjoyed it. We use it for movies and for sports, and so far this unit has not disappointed(I can actually see who has the basketball now!!!). For me, this unit was easy to set-up. Viewing is very clear from approx. 15'. As for sound, I don't have the best hearing but my wife states she likes the quality. This TV will soon be wall mounted and I will hopefully enjoy the sound as much as my wife.
Summary: I purchased this Sony LCD television a little over a week ago as an upgrade to my 27" Sony CRT. After much research, mostly through reading internet reviews, I decided to go with the Sony and I must say I am thoroughly satisfied. It has fairly easy setup, although it will take some tweaking to get the picture just right. Right out of the box, the ambient sensor is set to on. So when you first turn it on, the picture will appear dark.
Summary: Let's start off by saying that this is my 4th Sony TV purchase but only my 1st Sony LCD experience. I entered the LCD era years ago with Budget brands such as ViewSonic and Westinghouse and was very satisfied. Yet I'm always looking to upgrade. This 40" set replaced a perfectly working 36" Sony 720p CRT monster (219lbs), only because the entertainment center started to crumble around the mass. I still have all 3 of my old Sony CRT TV's and will never get rid of them.
Excerpt: Inledning Vi bodde i en liten lägenhet min sambo och jag, närmare bestämt en på strax under 30 kvadratmeter, och då räckte det gott med en 32-tums TV. Sedan flyttade vi till en betydligt större bostad, och behövde en ny televisionsapparat för att optimera TV-tittarupplevelsen i vårt nya vardagsrum.
Excerpt: Ik heb de Sony KDL-40EX500 TV nu een tijdje in het bezit. Ik heb net als anderen diverse Tv's vergeleken maar uiteindelijk toch besloten deze te kopen. De kwaliteit is heel erg mooi. Dit is natuurlijk wel een LCD TV. De LED TV's zullen straks wel mooier beeld geven. Maar de Bravia techniek zorgt dat het heel mooi beeld is. Bovendien heeft Plasma discounter een hele aanbieding. De LED tv's zijn een stuk duurder.
