Summary: This is the third HDTV that I have purchased in the past two years and is the best of the three. PROS: Very good picture. Though sound is not great, it is better than my two LGs. It has been used in two rooms and sound is much better in a smaller room. It seems that six feet makes a big difference in sound volume. The price has dropped $200.00 since I purchased in April 2011.
Summary: This television is for a bedroom and is placed in an entertainment center that is 37.4" in width. Fits perfectly. Amazing color and picture! Viewers will not be disappointed with this television. Everytime I look at this tv, I am happy with the puchase. Red is red and black is black even with out HD cable. Purchased the Sony Blu-Ray BDP-S580. We do not have the internet hooked up to bluray or tv. The only con is the remote for tv does not have a sleep timer button.
Summary: This is my fourth Sony LCD TV. The other three are still working great. Purchased this one for my home office/mancave. The quality of the picture is superb - also like to presence sensor - great when watching something boring and catching a quick nap - upon return to consciousness just a wave of the hand bring it back to life. Also like the internet connectivity and associated apps. Great TV.
Summary: We watch little TV and never use its fancy gizmos--simply watch DVD movies and some news anchors with very scary makeup--but we consider this Sony to be excellent in quality: beautiful picture, handsome and sleek body, sturdy construction. Highly recommended!
Summary: This TV was shipped to me in perfect condition. It was so easy to set-up it was scary. It took longer to take it out of the carton than to set it tto the stand. I have cable, so with just a couple of questions it set itself to the cable picture and sound quality, and the audio sounds wonderful and the video is beautiful, sharp and clear. I was watching a TV program on it after only about 10 minutes.
Pros: All the connections options I could ever need, Best looking TV out there, Easy To Setup, Energy Efficient, Good Remote Control, Great Picture Quality, Great Sound Quality, LED-backlit, Reduced Glare
Summary: I was very skeptical about buying such a big item via Amazon. Bieng a Costco member, I had already considered going to the warehouse and picking out the TV on my own. But I placed the order anyways and it was highly worth the worry. The TV came in impeccable condition, mintly packed. I was also very impressed with the HD quality video, the resolution is stunning. Connecting my Apply laptop was really easy, and I was able to view movies directly from my laptop.
Summary: Sony BRAVIA KDL40EX520 40-Inch 1080p LED HDTV We almost bought the less-costly Sony 40" KDL-40EX500 Bravia, but didn't because that model has been on the market since 2005. Instead, we bought this recently introduced EX520 which has later technology (e.g., back lighting); in spite of it having no Amazon customer ratings at the time. We looked at TVs in several local stores and no model in this size-range had a better picture than the Sony Bravia.
Excerpt: This product from Sony is extremely incredible. It displays true image quality with wonderful and amazing color experience. It is a 40 inch television so any how picture will be bigger and better. It can be either hang on the wall or there is a stand which can be used to keep it on a table. It is portable but little heavy. There are different ports for HDMI, additional speakers, pc connect and dvd player. The sound quality is fine.
