Would recommend to a friend. Was advised to buy a different brand because of official reveiws, but after my visit to currys the picture quality compared to other reputable brands just didn’t compare. I am happy with this tv and am very grateful to amazon for the price tag. Quality sound and image priceless.
Excellent tv at a great price. I did quite a bit of research before buying this tv, and it has lived up to all the good reviews i have seen. The first thing i noticed about it, is how relatively light it is. It’s much lighter than the 26′ sony bravia i was replacing that i bought 4 or 5 years ago. Inputs wise, it has plenty, including an rj45 ethernet connection, which i have used to connect via a mains network adapter to my router. You can also use a wifi usb dongle, but apparently it has to be the sony one at around £70. The menus have been updated since my old tv and are much clearer and aesthetically pleasing – the old ones were really clunky. You can control a huge range of functions. Picture quality is superb when playing bluray and pretty good when using freeview, although i can’t receive freeview hd in my area. Sound quality is really surprising.

Great tv, dlna perfect & bbc iplayer is definitely coming. Excellent tv, setup was easy, i love the ps3 type menu systems. The remote is also compatible with a ps3it connected to my router (via ethernet cable) without having to fiddle with any settings whatsoever. For those who have made comments saying they are hopeful for bbc iplayer, i can confirm it is definitely coming to this set, as my menu has it listed with a ‘coming soon’ title, so an upcoming update will fix this. As stated, to make this set wireless you would have to purchase a sony dongle (not a problem for me as router nearby, but maybe for others, that’s why i have docked 1 star). I’ve also tested the dlna functionality, it works great with my mpeg2 movies which are supported by this tv, however i have a lot of movies in different formats so felt a bit let down. However after a search on the net, i found some cool software called mezzmo which converts all movie types on-the-fly into any compatible formats your tv can handle (in this case mpeg2). The software is a joy to use and i really wasn’t expecting it to work, but it does, flawlessly. It found my dlna tv instantly, the interface is easy to use and most importantly, the streaming worked absolutely fine with the tv set. All in all i’m really impressed with this tv, the colours do need a bit of manual tweaking but other than that, this is the best tv i’ve ever owned by far.
I have been using my sony bravia kdl40ex403u for a few months now. I upgraded from a sharp 32′ and i think the 40′ is just the right size for my living room, i have it connected to sky+ hd, a sony blu-ray player, xbox 360, and a sony a/v system. One of my favourite features is the fact that i can use the sony tv remote to control my sony a/v system and blu-ray player. Picture quality is good, although standard definition sources are not great, but this is expected on a large screen. The menu layout is easy to understand and this is the same for any sony device, such as ps3 and blu-ray players. Also another great feature is the on demand video through the tv set, as it comes with a network point on the back, it can connect to the internet, which is great for watching bbc iplayer, full screen. Don’t know much about the sound quality, as i turned it off as soon as i got it set up, i highly recommend getting a surround sound system, with a sub woofer to really get the most from this tv set when watching blu-ray or other high definition sources. In conclusion, i think that this is a great full hd tv set from a manufacturer you know you can trust. I would recommend this to anyone.
Beautiful tv looks good – picture fantastic – came next day as promised cant fault anything.
Sony Bravia KDL40EX403U 40-inch Widescreen Full HD 1080p LCD Internet TV with Freeview HD (Discontinued by Manufacturer) : I purchased this tv at the weekend and after our first few days of use i can honestly say that i love it. I’ve done a lot of research and decided on a short list of models but nothing can compare to actually standing in front of a bunch of tvs and seeing the picture quality. This was by far the best picture in our price range. The build quality is excellent and the image quality is fantastic, especially for the price. Remember that you do get what you pay for so you won’t get the same picture as you would if you were spending £1000+ but for everyday use and hd playback it’s fantastic. The internet side of things is a great feature. Streaming content from youtube is nice but it doesn’t stream the hd content from youtube, so hopefully that will come in a future update. Overall i’m really pleased with the picture and build quality. It’s excellent, so much so that my siblings have both bought exactly the same model.
