Don't be fooled by LED this is an LCD (And an excellent one).

Summary: So this item gets 5 stars for what it is. A older (not really that old) LCD version of the Sony Bravia Version. THE ONLY ISSUE I HAVE WITH THIS IS HOW IT SAYS LED. To the average consumer they may think they're getting a killer deal on an LED TV (which in my opinion LED is the better technology). The reality of things are this is "LED Backlit" which in all honesty doesn't mean anything.
Summary: This could be the best TV I've ever owned. SO energy efficient, bright, colorful, and the blacks are BLACK. I use this as a huge computer monitor all the time, and the HD is incredible. I'd recommend this any day. The price is outstanding for this kind of quality. Remember to buy a mounting bracket and heavy toggle bolts if you're putting this on a wall! I was able to mount this on drywall with heavy duty toggle bolts and a simple tilting mounting bracket.
Summary: This TV has a nice crisp picture with incredible color. It also has good built in sound. It's also a nice looking TV. The stand is sturdy, but I think Sony could have provided a swivel stand with this TV. My only complaint is the blacks, sometimes it pixelates and doesn't give a good pure black. But overall, a great TV.
Summary: Even my picky son who thinks I never do much right keeps saying how great the picture is on this tv. I did not pay attention to the digital recovery rate numbers but have not noticed much problem...I dont watch sports. So I love Sony as usual...
Summary: I was looking for a new TV for the living room when my 17 year CRT finally died. So much to chose from these days.I wasn't looking for 3D or a "smart" TV, just the best possible picture. I happen to have a Sony Outlet Store near me, so got to see this TV up close. Thought the picture was extremely good...actually better than my 4 year old Panasonic LCD. 42 inches was all I could fit into the cabinet..Amazon had the best price.
MY TV BOX WAS MARKED EX44, IT IS AN EX440 HERE ARE THE FACTORY SPECS

Summary: THIS IS AN LCD TV WITH LED BACKLIGHTING... IT'S ENERGY EFFICIENT BECAUSE IT DOESNT USE CCFL BULBS my SONY EX44 LCD tv came well packaged in a double box in perfect condition via ups in 3 days free shipping, it arrived before my hdmi cable.. setup was remarkably easy. it read my satellite signal and my sony bluray player. it sensed the type of hookup and it was good to go in 5 minutes after turning it all on. picture is wonderful for a low end unit.
Summary: Upgrading a television isn't easy, especially with a the new technology they are always shelling out these days - but I did want this to be a dramatic upgrade from what I had before, which was an Insignia 32 Inch 720p (I bought 4 years ago at Best Buy for 450$) - for a college student, I figured that was a good deal at the time. Anyway, so I read the basics of the Sony Bravia, and I get hopeful.
Summary: Years ago, I had a SONY TV that just would not die. They historically have lasted forever in our family. However, now with the flat screens, for some reason, we hesitated about purchasing a Sony. This is our 3rd LED/LCD flat screen TV in our home. The first, a Sharp Aquos, purchased 4 years ago; the second, an LG purchased 2 years ago; and now this one. I did a lot of research before purchasing each TV.
Summary: Our old Sony tube HD set (12 years old) went out. I did some basic research, went to BestBuy to look at TVs, and ended up buying a very highly rated Samsung (UN40EH6030). It arrived with the Disney TV calibration disk (Wow: World of Wonder) and I dialed it in. DVD images were stunningly good -- the best I've ever seen on any TV; however, output from my Tivo Premiere HD was frankly poor with HD content -- and SD content was practically unwatchable.
