Product Details

Sony 42" Black 1080P LED HDTV, Model KDL42EX440

Inspired. Razor sharp. Lifelike. These words don't begin to describe the purity of picture in the 2012 lineup of Sony televisions. And it's not just about how it looks, it's about what you watch. From home videos and YouTube™ clips to Full HD streaming and 3D Blu-ray Disc™ videos, everything looks as real as life itself. It all moves naturally, too. With the latest advancements in image rendering and frame rate technology, football kickoffs appear as they would in real life. And precise detail can be appreciated in every blade of grass. No matter what it is, it's going to look better on a Sony TV.

Features:

  • Full HD 1080p
    Nothing expresses crystal-clear detail like Full HD 1080p picture quality. It's the highest in-home resolution available and takes advantage of the all-out HD glory of broadcast TV, satellite and other HD sources like your Blu-ray Disc™ player or PlayStation®3 entertainment system
  • Silky smooth
    Recreate the movement of real life. Sprinters accelerate clearly with less blur, so watching from home feels like you're watching from the stands. By minimizing judder, Motionflow™ XR 120 technology helps fast-paced action look natural for a more authentic view of the game
  • Clearly different
    Fine details and textures appear in whatever you’re watching, even in flat areas. Powered by Sony’s advanced noise reduction algorithm, this technology boosts image clarity with heightened contrast and depth that you won’t find on most televisions
  • So bright and so thin
    Powerful yet thin LEDs deliver a radically brighter picture than conventional LCD backlighting. They also help achieve an ultra-slim TV design that looks beautiful in your home. What's more, Sony's Edge LED Backlight technology delivers outstanding contrast, rich colors and enhanced dark-scene detail
  • Picture settings made easy
    Now adjusting the picture is as easy as changing the channel. Just make a quick choice among eight pre-configured audio and video settings for a customized fit to what you're watching. Scene Select options include Sports, Photo, Game, Cinema and Music
  • Theater-like movie viewing
    Watch movies the way they were meant to be seen. Sony’s 24p True Cinema technology allows the TV to maintain a movie’s original 24 frames per second (fps) rate so it looks less like television and more like it would in the movie theater
  • Against the grain
    Dazzle the whole family with ultra-crisp HD clarity and less grain. Digital Noise Reduction enhances detail in whatever you're watching with meticulous processing. It even helps clean up video from USB and other PC sources so the picture looks pristine and vivid

We have a small space. We use this set-up for our home theatre system. The back-lit LED screen is outstanding the clarity in motion is breathtaking. The TV sound is very good.
We have enhanced the sound with a Sony HTCT150 virtual 5.1 sound bar system and added a Sony blueray disc player. Our Sony Bravia TV has a Sony sync. system, so it connected to our gadgets automatically.
The 42" Sony LED TV Is short on gadgets but long on quality.

              It took a little doing to figure out how to use the U-Verse remote. Still haven't figured out how to size the screen to fet both outside edges included but as an "old timer" I'm likely a little slow at these things.
              Most impressed with the picture quality. HD really isn't thst much better on miost stations.

                I love this TV because it's a no bells and whistles. In the bedroom I just want to watch TV until I fall asleep. I don't want 3D, wifi, and all the other stuff. I have that in the family room and living room. So why pay for it if I'm not going to use it. This has the quality without the frills. That helps keep the price down. Just enough connections for cable box and a couple other things but not a lot of stuff I won't ever use.

                    I did a lot of research on basic 42 inch flat screens and found this was the best value in a name-brand set. Very pleased with the Sony.

                    Service and delivery comments:

                    Free shipping only took 3 days in my case! It was damaged during shipping so I had to return it the next morning via UPS, which was an easy process. I had a new one 4 days later with no problems. While I was disappointed that the first shipment was damaged, that's not ABT's fault at all. The whole process was very easy and surprisingly fast.
