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: 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.
Summary: This is an excellent intermediate sized television. It has a brilliant color spectrum with good blacks. Off axis viewing is the best I have encountered in an LCD set. There is no trace of motion blur. A perfect match for a bedroom or small family room.
Summary: After much comparison I decided to go with the XBR9 lcd over the Samsung LED. My main reasons were gaming needs and energy consumption. Now for gaming I must advise you to turn off the motion blur as it tends to add lag to your gaming.
Summary: Having made an extensive review of HDTV's including LEDs, I would say that overall the XBR9 series is the best. I read a ton of online reviews and went to the stores to compare first hand. The LEDs from Samsung and Sony are pretty good with very wide dynamic range.
Summary: Product delivered as promised and works as advertised. I really like the way that the TV integrates with the other Bravia products (Blue Ray and Sound bar). Installation does not require a geek or a teenager especially if one uses HDMI cables for the components.
