Summary: Let me preface this review by saying I'm not much of an expert on tv's and related technology. We bought this to "upgrade" from a smaller bravia we had for years. We loved it. Due to my inexperience, I pretty much just went with a "bigger is better" mentality when we ordered this, and didn't really pay attention to many details.
Summary: Recently we replaced our dead Olevia flat screen with this Sony. For the first month of use I was constantly frustrated. I watch a bit of B-Screen horror and Sci-fi with lots of dark scenes. I tried many times to adjust the settings for dark scenes, and I disabled the auto-dim in the setup menu. Nothing worked. Frustrated, I gave the TV a one star rating because the dark scenes were virtually unwatchable, they were so dark.
Summary: Well, Sony makes a good tv. I could have used another hdmi input, but two seems to be the standard these days. They've made input switching a lot easier and it's really easy to hook your computer up now. I've had a little trouble playing video files from USB, but that's really not an issue for me. Picture quality is good and the blacks are pretty deep.
Summary: i like this. 4/5. Sony BRAVIA KDL42EX440 42-Inch 1080p LED HDTV. i always like Sony TVs more than anything else. and this meets my expectations. Only problem I am facing is USB is detecting most of the formats.
Summary: Firstly, this TV has awesome picture and sound. Colors are bright and vivid, blacks are dark, and everything looks sharp. The sound on this TV is also surprising for a flat screen TV. Remote and menus are very simple to use also. The TV is really thin and light for its size. There are a few major issues with this TV. First, as noted by other reviewers, Sony's "TrueMotion 120" is deceiving. It is NOT a 120Hz TV, it is actually 60Hz.
Summary: I'm not really a high tech person as I purchased this to replace a 13 year old, 230 pound, standard def,32 inch Sony Wega. I've always wanted a new tv for the front, but that old tube of mine just kept running. Well this was such a great deal that I had to pull the trigger ($518 less 10%). The tv looks great to me.
Summary: I would have given this Tv 5 stars if it weren't for the stand. It is defective! I lined it up with the screw holes and tried to screw it in. It would not! I had my husband do it and he told me it could not be done. There was no way that the screw holes would line up with the stand. So now I will be putting it up on the wall. Just be aware of this problem if you don 't want to put it up on the wall. Luckily I do not care. Other than that, I like the tv.
