Summary: I purchased this tv right before Christmas 2011 on eBay. It has three HDMI ports that you can use for a better picture and sound quality. The tv is very good in my opinion. I cannot say it displays crystal clear pictures but, for a non-videophile, I believe the pictures are really good both from cable HD channels and from streaming services like Amazon Video on Demand. Reviewer RW says there are no controls on the set and that your only option is the remote. Incorrect.
Excellent TV. Better than anything you can get today for the same money,

Summary: Owned this TV before an ex stole it from me. Great Picture. Great reliability. Excellent viewing radius. Impeccable sound. The one drawback...and it's minor...is that it take about 8 seconds to start-up from the moment you press power. Totally worth it...I have 4 deep breaths for a TV that produces an amazing quality especially in HD. Bought it twice, can you think of a better recommendation? Me neither.
Summary: I have a 4 year old, 52 inch Sony Z series TV. The Z series is the quality level just below the top-of-the-line XBR series. My Z set has a refresh rate of 240 Hz. I expected the KDL40BX421 to have as good or nearly as good a picture as my old Sony Z. After all, the technology has improved a lot during the last four years. Boy was I wrong. The picture on the KDL40BX421 is not as sharp and the colors in the red palette are not nearly as good.
Summary: This is the first time in my life I have ever bought two of the exact same TV's. The Sony Bravia has a great picture, has been very reliable and offers all the features I need (HDMI, 1080p, etc.). I also have not had any problem finding guides and so forth online. I may yet buy another biggr Sony Bravia.
Summary: I recently bought this TV used and it was an excellent buy and superior product. Right out of the box it was extremely easy to set up the stand and hook up. I was watching HDTV within 20 minutes. The sound is good and the picture is sharp. It has great Eco features which I appreciate and will be using, especially since we fall asleep with the TV on a lot.
Would only buy if money is limited. Poor engineering.

Summary: Grainy picture. Slow boot up Strange remote. Buttons are not in normal positions. Rear I/O is on back making placing close to wall difficult without breaking connectors. Would never buy a Sony but this product was cheap for where it was to go. I'd stick with Samsung over any other mfg.
Summary: Love my TV!!! Thank you so much!!! I recommend this product to anyone looking for a high-end television set... It comes packaged professionally and I feel great about this deal... Thank you, Thank you, Thank you, so much !!!
