Summary: I owned a lot of Sony products over the years. I have to tell you their stock is dropping with me. I just purchased the KDL-40R450A, 40" tv, and was all ready for the big transition to my first flat screen. What a let down, I am glad I kept my old Magnavox. The facts: the price was good, this thing only weighs about 5lbs, but so far, I have not been impressed by anything that it does.
