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.
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.
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..
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.
