Summary: My 42" Sony Bravia stopped working 3 weeks after the 1-year warranty expired. My old TV lasted 8 years without problems. I'm disappointed. KDL-42V4100. As a follow up, Sony paid for the $600 repair of my TV after I paid $100 nonrefundable scheduling fee for the repair. I was happy with that and put my rating of sony back up to 3 or 4 stars. Now I'll just cross my fingers it lasts.
Summary: I've been using this TV for 2 months now, and I'm still very impressed. I found very few reviews of this TV anywhere, so was rather unsure about buying it. I was choosing between this and the Samsung LN40A550, and I was leaning towards the Samsung mostly because I had seen it once(at Costco) and was impressed, and its very well reviewed. I went and saw both the TVs at BestBuy and to be honest, I could not tell the difference.
Summary: Even before calibrating the Custom setting, the picture on this SONY is superior or as good as all sets near its price by 20%, making the savings on a cheaper bargain brand moot. It's only competitor for picture, especially the depth of the blacks and detail in the dark areas (which can be calibrated) is the Panasonic 42" Plasma. In our bright room, it is superior. Off angle viewing is not as good but doesn't apply to our environment.
Summary: Well I expected the TV to be wonderful, and it is. But the big surprise was the care with which Amazon's took over after the sale. Two guys with a truck arrived at our door three days ahead of schedule, carried it in, unpacked it, made sure it was free of any dents or scratches, programmed it with our signal and were gone in under half an hour. If that was "White Glove Delivery," I would highly recommend it.
Summary: I was very hesitant at first when I saw te low price on Amazon, but I thought I could not go too wrong with a Sony. I'm glad I made the purchase. The TV arrived very well packaged and the setup was a breeze even for a non-techie like me. The colours are amazing and the overall picture quality superb. I can't express adequately how happy I am with my purchase, but I can tell you all my Television sets in the future will come from Sony and Amazon.

Summary: Sony Bravia V-Series KDL-42V4100 42-Inch 1080p LCD HDTV I just got this Tv today from Amazon warehouse deals, when i paid for it, they said there is blemish on the TV being a used one , but to my surprise i got a brand new TV that am still searching for the blemish on, the Audio is great, the resolution is perfect...i dont know much about TV's but i know i got what i wanted and am happy.
Summary: We've had our Sony for almost three months now and are very pleased with it. We replaced a 15 year old 25" TV with the new Sony and the difference in picture and sound is amazing! We have satellite so we were used to what we thought was a good picture, but the Sony really made a difference... also, the Sony has such good sound, compared to our old TV, that we seldom even turn on our separate sound system anymore.
