          Best Uses

            Comments about Sony 40" BRAVIA HX800 Series LED Black Flat Panel LCD HDTV:

            This is my first HDTV. I spent a long time researching and talking to people. This one has all the latest technology and the LED runs much cooler than LCD from what I understand. The WiFi adapter opens up an entire new world to TV and complemented by DirecTV, I have to be careful not to turn into a couch potato!! I have an old SONY 27" Trinitron that I moved into the bedroom - probably will last forever (and was way ahead ot its time, as SONY usually is), and I anticipate that this incredible replacement will do the same! I highly recommend this TV!

            Pros

            • and bright.
            • Auto-switching on the input ports. Multiple hookups of different sources made easy. Crisp
            • Clear

            Cons

            • Length of the included power cord
            • was a little short for where I needed it. Wish there was a model smaller than 40".

            Best Uses

              Comments about Sony 40" BRAVIA HX800 Series LED Black Flat Panel LCD HDTV:

              Primary use is for my PS3 on games and Blu Ray movies. I also use this as a monitor for my computer. Third use is for watching cable TV.
              TV is very light and easy to unpack and place on my desk by myself.
              I upgraded from a 1 year old Samsung 32" and have no regrets.
              3D performance is fantastic on 3D movies (Piranha 3D, Bolt 3D) and games (COD Black Ops, PAIN, and Motorstorm). Fast moving action remains clear.
              When I'm using the TV as a side monitor on my Windows Desktop, web pages and documents are extremely clear and easy to read. Simulated 3D mode is fun to play with, with desktop backgrounds and family photos.
              Remote control and and the menus are easy to understand and navigate.
              A built in, on demand manual and help guide... Wicked idea, and very informative.
              If/When it comes time to replace my 57" Toshiba HDTV in the living room, I'm certainly going to go with a BRAVIA.

                • Picture Quality
                • Set-Up

                Cons

                • None so far

                Best Uses

                  Comments about Sony 40" BRAVIA HX800 Series LED Black Flat Panel LCD HDTV:

                  The Sony HX800 is amazing in every way. The picture quality has no peer in the 40" range. LED is the only way to go. The small premium you pay is well worth it.
                  The TV is part of an all Sony AV system; connectivity to the Blu-ray and AV Receiver was seemless, as it was to my cable system and Klipsch speakers. The components knew what to do and ran through the set-up and diagnotics on auto-pilot.
                  Highly recommend!

                    Comments about Sony 40" BRAVIA HX800 Series LED Black Flat Panel LCD HDTV:

                    I have now had the KDL-40HX800 for about 2 weeks now. I always do a lot of research before any major purchase and this tv purchase was no different. I wasn't looking for a huge tv since this tv was going into a bedroom and may be used in a living room until I make a large purchase of a 60" tv since that's the largest that Sony currently makes. Also I'm waiting for price of the 240Hz 60" tv's to come way down before I buy. Since there are not a lot of reviews for this tv on the Sony website I felt I needed to write one for this fabulous tv for those folks considering the purchase of this tv.
