Summary: This T.V. greatly exceeds my expectations. This is the first hi-def T.V. I've purchased and the picture is outstanding. I researched many T.V.'s before buying. Went to several different stores to view different brands and nothing I saw compares to this picture. I'm not a T.V. geek just an ordinary T.V. lover and I am memorized by the quality of the picture. Would definitely recommend this T.V. to anyone who likes quality viewing!
Summary: I love Sony Televisions. We have always had Sony's at home ever since I can remember. They are reliable and last forever! It has great picture quality as well as sound. When I compared it with other tv's that have the same size I couldn't pass up this model. The picture is sharp, bright and the colors are so nicely balance right off. It is actually the first tv that I bought that is hdtv being that I had held back from purchasing one if I couldn't buy a Sony.
Summary: I bought this mainly as an upgrade from my Samsung 32" 720p tv. All I can really say after having this tv after 2 days is that I freaking love it. Out of the box the standard picture needed no tweaking other than needing to set the brightness back a little bit for darker blacks. I mainly use this tv for gaming and Netflix.
Summary: This was a gift to me and I couldn't be more happier. TV. Fir me is about the quality of its picture, not the bells and whistle that comes with it. This television delivers a very good, crisp and clear picture. Vivid colors and true high definition. Even with 720p (cables and sattelite only delivers at 720) reception it delivers quality high definition. My two year old sony BDP synced well and functioned well with this Bravia. My Apple TV worked well with it as well.
Summary: I own a Pioneer Kuro PDP-5080 HD, so that's my point of reference. The most important part of any television is it's ability to reproduce accurate color and black levels. Smart features, internet connectivity, etc. are all ancillary features that don't affect the monitors ability to display a realistic picture to faithfully reproduce the TV/Movies that you are watching. The Sony KDL-40R450A is an absolutely stunning television.
Summary: This TV is a great value. It has very impressive picture. The sound is also very good even though i dont use it. My only complaint about it is that the normal RCA input is actually run through the comportment input. You can probably take care of that problem with just using splitters but I haven't tried because I have no need for the component input. Its not that big of a deal.
Summary: Fantastic TV. The picture is clear, bright and sharp. The colors are natural looking and deep. Even the sound is very good which is surprising for a flat screen TV. The base was easy to put together and it sturdy. The TV itself is very light and easy to move around. And, the price can't be beat. It is much better than TVs that cost $100-200 more (though it is not wireless nor wireless ready so be aware of this when purchasing). It is easy to set up and use.
Summary: I couldn't be anymore happier even if I tried, this television is superb. I've been looking for a good flat screen for the past couple of weeks, but I really didn't care for smart or 3d features, so I went ahead and bought this 40 inch Sony television. Right out the box you'll be given three picture options, vivid, standard and custom. What's so astonishing is that you don't even have to adjust the picture resolution, it looked amazing straight out the box.
