    This Sony Bravia is state of the art with wi-fi and 3-D capability, and we bought it based on an electronic enthusiast's recommendation. We use it in our family room as our primary TV, and we got the 40-inch size to fit into a built-in wall unit's space. We access the wi-fi through a Sony Blue Ray player and FIOS router, and it's as good as a wired connection. We haven't purchased the glasses or tried the 3-D yet. The HD picture quality is good, with a "you are there" feel to it, but the colors are not as vivid as our son-in-law's 2009 KDL V5100 model. We expected even better picture quality from a set that is LED edge lit and has the 240 Hz refresh rate. After reading the March 2011 Consumer Reports we knew that no TV had great sound quality, but we were still disappointed. Apparently, the speakers are facing downward, so they might sound better with the TV mounted on the wall rather than on a furniture top. This set would benefit greatly from auxillary or home theater speakers, which we might eventually install. The most noticable and annoying negative is ironically the very audible "bink" sound when turning the set ON. It will surely startle a sleeping dog until the poor animal adapts to it.

    Hi to all! The biggest problem of this TV is that you can't use USB to watch VIdeos, 80% of Avi, MPEG4 and other formats it doesn't recognize (writing can not playback)! its very disappointing, I bought Sony because of its known quality, but now I think it would be better buy Samsung or other with full usage of its features. I hope this review will help to understand Sony's workers to update this problem to this TV by automatic update system!!!

    An Outstanding purchase

    By NEKO

    from So.California

    Comments about Sony 40" BRAVIA EX720 Series Black LCD Flat Panel HDTV:

    For my money this is, and I have researched, one of the best TV purchases I have made. Going on my third, Sony TV. Although an adapter is needed for streaming of Internet and Computer stuff, this is not in my opinion a Negative, CONS, it's all part of the process. Haven't gotten 3-D glasses yet (waiting for a discount) but I am sure the Sony 3-D will be out of sight.

      Comments about Sony 40" BRAVIA EX720 Series Black LCD Flat Panel HDTV:

      I read a lot of reviews and watched a number of You Tube BofA on the set prior to purchasing and I have to say aside from, the somewhat difficult set up, I love this TV. Pictures is flawless in my amateur opinion and the features are cool too. A great value in my opinion.

      Comments about Sony 40" BRAVIA EX720 Series Black LCD Flat Panel HDTV:

      The 120Hz refresh rate really isn't that great. Watching sports on this TV isn't as good as my old Samsung LCD with 60Hz refresh rate. However, the color reproduction on this Sony is truer than Samsung, which makes for great movie watching. I haven't tried playing games on it so I cannot really comment.

      Service and delivery comments:

      ABT took extra care in packaging the TV for delivery.

          Comments about Sony 40" BRAVIA EX720 Series Black LCD Flat Panel HDTV:

          Sony's announcement of 2012 models doesn't mention a 40" 3D set. If that is the case, this is the one to buy at model closeouts before it's gone. The only adjustment I needed to make is the black levels were set too dark but otherwise the picture is awesome out of the box. The remote is easy to use and I like the friendly and informative on-screen help system.

          from CA

          Comments about Sony 40" BRAVIA EX720 Series Black LCD Flat Panel HDTV:

          I bought it on April 2011, I was getting error - continuously - "Content Error", I worked with Comcast - Internet service provider based on Sony Customer care advise, no issues from Comcast, I raised my voice around 5-6 times to Customer care, so they replaced my TV with refurbished one - given 1 yr more warranty , this TV is not giving any errors like that, every thing is good and working fine now, I compared other new TV's the Apps Sony providing is easy to access, with no time we can just enter in to any App, Youtube search, Netflix search, HULU all are very fine, when I compared to other brand - I felt the sound should be improved a bit, Picture quality is computable, Outlook of the TV is not matching with the performance - compare competitor , should mix with other colors in the outlook like steal or Gold or metal , I am happy after exchange with no extra cost and extra warranty. given a chance I want to change the just frame or some thing so it looks good even when you switch off the TV.
