Summary: I am very happy with this TV, KDL-40XBR9. Great picture, great sound, and great features. The price is a bit high but inline with comparable LCD HDTVs. The TV needed no adjustment out of the box. The picture is clear and bright. The SD picture seemed a bit blotchy at first but I've noticed that the source signal is the culprit and some channels look better than others with my DTV+Tivo receiver. I don't have HD yet.
Summary: This is my First LDC HD tv-SONY KDL-40XBR9 I just got this tv with bundle offer from circuitcity. I m in process of checking all features one by one.So far so good. I observed following things - not sure if it is an issue or not. If somebody has encounterd this problem with xbr9 Serices -pls let me know 1) While navigating using XBar menu ,background color is blue and some time black.Is there issue that it should come only black but not blue for xbar menu?
Summary: BEFORE ANYTHING ELSE: I recommend you to upgrade your TV firmware / software as soon you receive it.[...] Trying to get a internet cable to the TV will be a difficult task of more cases, I used an internet bridge or game adaptor that gives you the get wireless and have a cable to connect to the tv.
