Summary: I purchased this TV Sony Bravia M-Series KDL-26M4000 26-Inch 720p LCD HDTV for my mother and paid the premium for a Sony as I wanted to be sure my mother would not experience any problems. To our surprise, after 10 months, the picture went bad. Fortunately, there was a 1 year warranty with the TV.
Summary: I wanted to get a new TV to replace our big screen that died. I have a huge all unit on one wall but the space available was not big enough to allow for buying more than a 26 inch, due to ventilation issues.
Warning with interference on cable and satellite boxes, and annoying popping noise

Summary: Love the picture quality. Love this TV. Picture quality is not in question. Sound is fine, except for an annoying popping noise when I change channels on a Comcast HD box. I ran into another problem, though. The TV was not allowing my Comcast HD box to function in the dark.
Summary: My issue was a brand new TV bought for Xmas. When it was opened and plugged in it did not work, this is almost unheard of for TV's now days. When I called Sony support I was told I could receive a rebuilt TV or have a repairman sent to the house because it had exceeded 30 days.
Summary: I'll try to be succinct as possible, but I thought it might be helpful to compare the L and M series Sony Bravia televisions currently on the market, as they are similarly priced, and people may be wondering what differences are any may be worth the price or size difference/sacrifice.
Summary: After having the set for 10 days the set went blank and Standby light flashed 2 times in sequence. Called Sony Tech Support and it was decided that a repair would be necessary. Checked online for comments on this type of failure and found it was a problem with the circuit board and that LCD TV's...
Summary: This tv is just excellent. Got rid of my older Samsung 26a450 in favor of the sony 26m4000 purely cause the viewing angle is better, and this tv is easier to calibrate cause of the fewer video adjustments to make.
Summary: I like the picture but I don't think the bugs are worked out of this one yet. I can't use HDMI to connect to my Comcast Motorola HD DVR box without a huge popping sound when changing channels. Component works fine, but what's the point of having HDMI if it's glitchy?
Summary: From my experiance, Sony is the only brand TV to buy. I am satified with the quality of the picture and the viewing angle. My only gripe is that it doesn't accept discrete codes to change inputs, which means I ending up not using the tuner on the TV and had to run everyhing through one S-Video cable...
