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.
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.
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: 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%).
Summary: I have to say that I am a Sony guy when it comes to tvs. I couldn't believe a 42" led would be as cheap as this was! It works seamlessly with my Sony Bluray player, as did the last one, but there's no more switching between inputs. When the bluray player comes on, the input automatically switches.
Summary: I'll just comment on the relevant things. Picture quality is very good, I calibrated this TV and the Gamma, Lumminance and Color Temp can be close to reference with the controls available. Blue color on the upper end of the greyscale cannot be dialed in with the controls available.
