Summary: After a lot of research and money saving we bought this TV in September 2008. It looked and sounded great up until a week ago I went to turn it on and as the screen started to illuminate, it shut off and a series of red blinks began. My warranty was expired by 8 months and when I called Sony they could only refer me to a Sony approved repairman.
Excerpt: My husband and I wanted a flat screen tv for our master bedroom so we went around looking. The only TV brand we have ever bought was SONY. Married 20 years and we still have our very first SONY TV! I need to mention that to this day, it happens to be my very favorite tv ever. So anyway, we looked around and finally decided to purchase our 40 inch Sony Bravia flat screen at Best Buy. I hate their return policy of a 15% restock fee (totally crooked!!
Sony Bravia 40 inch LCD TV has a beautiful picture.

Excerpt: Sony Bravia 40 inch LCD TV has a beautiful picture. I really like the tv. It allows connection to a pc and picture in a picture to jump between tv and computer. With a wireless keyboard you can sit across the room and relax. Cinemotion keeps the motion from having a drag or shadow effect. A big improvement. There are plenty of connections on the tv to connect many devices. The only thing I was disappointed about is that is doesn't have an alarm or a automatic turn...
Excerpt: My husband and I asked for a new flat screen TV for Christmas a couple of years ago. As is in our nature, we did a lot of research before settling on the Sony 40 inch LCD TV. We decided to go with Sony because they have top of the line televisions that are known to last forever and have great warranties.
Excerpt: The Sony KDL-S4100 is a great entry-level HDTV for many reasons. #1 It is very affordable #2 It is very user-friendly. The s4100 is, right now, somewhat obsolete if you are looking for anything that is near the top 3/4ths of HDTV. It definitely is aged compared to the newer LED and 3D tvs. It has great sound for TV speakers. The 1080p/24p cinema mode is definitely a great feature on this TV. I know of many other tvs that are more expensive and do not have this feature.
Excerpt: I purchased my Sony - KDL-40S4100 40 in. LCD TV about a month ago and all I can say is WOW! It is outstanding in performance, quality and the picture is vibrant and sharp! I like the cool features like clear glass on the frame for effect. It comes with 3 HDMI ports and plenty of others to hook up everything from Blu-ray and DVD players to a personal computer. It comes with a very sturdy base and is stable when moving to install plugins or to reposition.
I am a Sony Enthusiast and thrilled to own this Television .

Excerpt: The Sony KDL40S4100 is a great buy for the price. I have to say our family is Sony loyal right now. We had an old Sony tube tv for 15+ years. When that went out we decided to up grade and did to a 52 inch Sony xbr4--the top of the line at the time. With a nice big tv in the living room we decided to go for a 2nd tv for the kids in another room. We choose the Sony KDL40S4100.
This Sony has to many little things that are wrong
2 May 2009
Excerpt: There is so many little things wrong. For instance it takes forever to turn on, no on screen time display. On HD alot of the time the voice will cut out then come back in. When you jump from the station your on, you might get lucky and get the one you wanted. For a HD TV there is no smart sound for commericals, the writing on the display is so small you about have to get up to read it. For a HD TV costing $1200 it's really a poor buy.
