Summary: Sony BRAVIA KDL40BX420 40-Inch 1080p LCD HDTV, Black We bought this Sony unit in Sept 2008. It has functioned flawlessly. However... In January 2012 we upgraded to HD satellite service and noticed a vertical grey "ghosted" line about 5" from the right. Search online and you will find many many many complaints about this. If we had a 3 year warranty, and that's unclear, we're beyond it...
Summary: I'm gonna tell it to you like it is folks. I recently purchased a "refurbished" KDL-40Z4100/B direct from Sony Style. However, what Sony sold me was a used, not a refurbished, TV. Although there was nothing functionally wrong with the TV I received, it was obvious that it had been used for some time. There were chips, tape marks, scuffs and scratches all along the bezel and the screen looked as if someone tried to clean it with a dirty sponge.
Summary: The one-star reviews complain about "sparkles". I've had this TV for almost a year and the only time I've noticed sparkles is sitting about 6 inches from it. The USB function isn't great - it only works with "Cruzer" brand USB drives - I couldn't get the USB input in the TV to work with card readers, iPods, ect. Not really a problem for me since there's so many ways to get networked music into this TV. The picture and the sound are so good I'll give it 5 stars.
Summary: Bought 2 for a client. they looooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooved it
Summary: Bought this TV about a week ago, got it at CompUSA here in Florida.. Was on sale for $850 so I jumped on it as I was in the market to buy a TV (Ironically enough AMAZON screwed me and my order and just said 'opps' sorry and nothing else) so they lost my business and I saved about 300-400 bucks. But anyways this TV is awesome.. video games look amazing from my PS3.. Blu Rays as well.. I turn the motion smoothing or whatever it is for movies..
Summary: Couldn't be happier with my Sony 40" Z - actually was not really prepared for the impact it would have on my viewing. Picture is stunning, and the sound much better than other brands I checked out in this price range. As others have said, I was leary about a purchase of this amount being made online, but Amazon stands behind their products. Have received several comments about the sleek appearance too, which is always nice...
Summary: Very nice picture and a new thin screen design. Has almost all the extra features of the XBR with only two exceptions that I don't care about. Not too thin like the new Samsung which seems flimzy and subject to easy damage. All the input and output choices you could want including an Ethernet port, USB, 4 HDMIs, etc.
