After some research and forcing myself to stay in budget I bought this set for my bedroom. 40 inch is a perfect size for a bedroom set at least for my room it is.
Pros- 1080P plus Sony know how =very good PQ, the sound while nothing to write home about is fine. Setup was a breeze the set found all my available OTA stations with no problem the rest was just plug and play. The weight is 29# my five year old 37 inch LCD is 46# so it's very easy to handle
Cons- Limited ports and having one HDMI in back and the other one on the side is a drag. The set has minimal features but I knew that going in the bezel is pretty thick so not that stylish but who cares. Remote is about as bare bones as it gets but once again for what I'm using it for who cares.
Bottom line this is a Sony entry level bare bones set and for what I paid for it I'm happy. I normally skip the extended warranty but after hearing one horror story after another about just out of factory warranty failures with LCD sets even brand name sets I thought I'd better get it.
PS Wal Marts 90 day return policy is also very nice Best is only 30 days.
I HAVE HAD THIS TV FOR 2 YEARS AND HAVE BEEN EXTRORDINARILY AMAZED AT THE PICTURE QUALITY AND SOUND. AT FIRST, I BOUGHT A VIZIO TO SAVE MONEY--THAT WAS A MISTAKE--AND I RETURNED THE VIZIO. THE SOUND QUALITY IN VIZIO WAS TERRIBLE. SO TAKE MY ADVICE AND GO SONY!
This tv is magnificent. I LOVE the crisp picture. Set-up was automatic, simple, and includes features I'd not seen before. I'd always heard that Sonys are excellent televisions, but I wasn't sure about purchasing from WalMart. I'm so glad I came in and looked around. I have ZERO problems with this television and, frankly, I'm spending way too much time watching it! Need to get outside more! :) No hesitation-- I recommend this model-- and you can't beat the price.
I've had my TV for a few weeks and so far I haven't had 1 problem. This is my first flat screen TV . I went from an 80's floor model to this SONY, so it's hard to compare. I just wish I went a little bigger. Oh yes the sound. I always have to adjust the sound for one reason or another, other than that, I love it.
This TV has just started giving trouble the picture goes into like a Negative black & white
I googled the problem and found a lot of people getting the same thing
First of all Sony warranty is out nothing we can do
Second cost of repair is more than a new TV now this thing cost over $1000 two years ago
I WILL NEVER BUY ANOTHER SONY PRODUCT AGAIN
Recommend you stay well clear of these TV's Go buy a Panasonic or a Samsung
I have had this TV for about 6 weeks. It has a constant humming sound. Very annoying. I can not enjoy watching TV with a constant high pitch hum.
Overall I'm satisfied with this purchase. The picture is amazing as well as the sound and quality of this sony tv. Bought it for my wife 2 weeks ago and she loved it! I thought the price was just a bit high but I didnt feel like going thru the hassel of taking it back and finding another one. I would of been happier with spending $375-$400 but it is what it is and I like it! One down fall tho is that its a little bit thicker than what I wanted since I was going to hang it from the wall but nonetheless once it was up, it looked pretty good :) I'd give it a 8.2 out of 10!
I tried other makes, and they didn't compare with Sony.
It's a Sony! What more is there to say? Had a little trouble figuring out the closed captioning because I was trying to do it with the TV remote and the Direct TV tech had programed it to operate only with DTV remote. If you're thinking about HD don't settle for second best. Get a Sony!
GREAT T.V. FOR THE PRICE EXCELLENT!
I ordered the product through Walmart.com and got it before I thought I would....GREAT!
I plugged it in and watched it for 12 hours of the course of 3 days. The next morning, I find that I have a pixel in the center of the screen that is red ALL THE TIME.
This was unacceptable to me, so I called SONY (I had already registered the machine) and described the problem. SONY informed me that this performance was acceptable and that they would not send me a new television. SONY says it's acceptable for a device to have more than one pixel fail on that screen and that I'd have to have nearly 10 pixels stop working before they'd consider the screen defective.
SONY used to have such good products!
The picture quality is great vary sharp and clear. The only bad thing I found so far is the sound from the speakers. They are on the bottom and u can hear it vary good had to hook it up to a home theater for good sound .
The product is fine. I was hoping for more from a SONY but it is fine for the money
The speakers are on the bottom of the TV and face the floor. I had to turn the volume up so loud to decipher spoken word it was uncomfortable.
I ended up returning it and purchasing a Vizio 39" (not available at Walmart at the time) with front firing speakers. The Vizio ended up being a superior to this Sony in Every way, including a better picture for over $100 less.
if your looking for a reliable TV,great picture with good sound,this is the best comparable around.This is our second set .the first is in the bedroom,and this one in our family room.If you want decent sound ,play around with the settings,that what there for.to many people expect to just turn on the set and give no thought to setting the controls.Believe me I am not high tech,but I found the panel to be user friendly.The picture is so crisp,and we don't have Hd.I watched a blade of grass waving on the ground and started laughing ,it was just like the commercial.all in all this is a great tv.For the price the quality is excellent and Walmart makes that happen.Good Job Walmart.
Very pleased with timely and secure delivery service. Excellent picture, sound could be louder, but is correctible.
Sony has great quality and it's worth paying for.
I bought this TV as a replacement for a failing 42" plasma (bedroom TV) - the TV is getting a steady diet of cable via ClearQAM for now. Just due to changes in display technology (the replaced plasma was purchased new in 2005), LED is decidedly better than plasma unless you are talking literally bottom-end (that is any of the major brands); this is entirely due to shared sources for most LED display panels and common technologies for the most part. In addition to the HD via cable, I also have a DVD/VCR combi-player connected via component (DVD section) - the TV is showing the limitations of the *player* (which is also of the 200x era), as it supports neither 1080p or HDMI. The TV has two HDMI inputs - the rear one will eventually be used for either an HD STB or Tivo Premiere, while the side input will get my desktop PC when it gets moved into the bedroom for Widescreen Windows. It's not fancy - but it's not supposed to be; as it is, it more than gets the job done.
I am very pleased with my new SONY BRAVIA 42" TV ! I was pleasantly surprised to receive my order a week earlier than the projected delivery date.
