Summary: This 2009 TV has an excellent picture and works dependably. The only problem, a known issue with this model, is that the Ethernet port does not work. It is network capable, but not wifi ready, so we bought a Roku for it and now we have just the setup we wanted.
2 yrs later & this is still the best TV in the house!

Summary: I wanted to wait to write a review until I owned it long enough to make a fair assessment. I bought this TV 2 years ago. It was the first of a total of 4 LCD TV's I would purchase for my home. This one is by far the best in the house on every comparable level. The picture quality is amazing, the sound is amazing, it's all amazing. And as a mom one thing I really love is how easy the screen is to clean off dirty finger prints!
Summary: I love this tv!!!! We already have the 46xbr9 and were looking for a replacement for our bedroom. After looking at and reviewing; Samsung 6400, LG 5500, Vizio Razor, Panasonic Viera I found this 40xbr9. I just couldn't beat the price for the picture quality. My wife also likes the web enabled extras (I suggest the D-Link dap-1522 wireless bridge). Stacked up against the other tvs even though they're newer the picture quality of the xbr9 is just outstanding.
Summary: Replaced our Sony Trinitron two years ago (2008) with another...Bravia 40XBR4 1080p. Had done much advanced research combined with my past Sony products, decided to stay with the brand. Sony was once the top of the line...About two months ago, there was multiple imaging for the first 10 minuts or so until it warmed up. Tonight, November 16, 2010 there is no picture. A black screen with vertical and horizontal lines that looks like plaid.
Summary: My purchase came damaged, most likely due to inadequate packaging. The vendor requested double boxing if you were to return an item, but the Sony TV was delivered through Fedex in only the manufacturer's single box. There was damage inside the set which was not obvious until I had assembled the stand and removed the protective tape around the edge of the frame. When turned on, the picture was half black and half looked like fragmented crystals.
Summary: Jorge R. H February 3, 2010 I'll tell you something I am sure they will not believe. Last week, buy one and these TV, turn off the computer and went to work. After 15 minutes but I was billed 2 TV for $ 2600.les swear I do not buy them. When I returned in the afternoon I found this strange purchase, immediately cancel the order of these 2 TV. Rest assured, I received the Emal of cofirmacion.
