Summary: Let me first say that I am not a TV geek or a gamer. I'm very happy with this TV - the size is right and the price was great. This TV replaced a 24" flat front tube TV that weighed 85 pounds! I bought the other TV when the prices on the flat panel TVs (only plasmas then) were close to $2000. This TV cost $450 and weighs around 17 pounds. I don't need a lot of bells and whistles. I have my Roku hooked up to it and HD cable. The picture and sound are great.
Summary: Was looking for a good sized and quality TV within budget for my new apartment. After considering different options ranging from LG, Samsung, Vizio,.. this is exactly what I need. Sony labels usually come with pricey stuff, however, this item is not that bad. A within budget TV for the quality that you want.
Summary: Bought this 40" Sony for my 82 year young Mom who wanted a larger screen, she loves it. TV is slim and light. Works fine and gives a nice clear picture in HD. Set is made out of light plastic and its guts are circuit boards and LEDs. It feels like a toy TV but it performs real well. Has only 2 HDMI ports but that is all you need if you have just a cable box and DVD. All sets today are now being made light and cheap to keep cost down. Hope it lasts at least 3 years.
Excerpt: is een goede degelijke LCD televisie. Ik was alleen in de veronderstelling dat alle nieuwe TVs zouden beschikken over netwerk access: dat heeft deze TV dus niet. Maar: ik dacht dat dit wle goed zou zitten...
