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

    I couldn't be happier with this Sony t.v. The picture quality is excellant. The black level is outstanding. And the color is spot on. The details are very clear, even in dark scenes. Sony's Motionflow XR 120 does a great job at reducing motion blur. The digital noise reduction also does a great job. Even standard DVD's on this t.v. look outstanding. Probably because of my Sony Blu-ray's excellant upscaling of DVD's to 1080p! The sound quality is very good for a thin LED/LCD t.v. Most on the market sound very tinny, not this Sony. This t.v. blows away my one year old Sharp LCD in every way, especially in sound quality. Buy this excellant Sony t.v. I'm sure you won't be disappointed! I'm a Sony fan for life! Also, I must say Sony's customer support is top-notch. They're very helpful. And they take their time to explain everything to you. And really care about you as a customer!

    Great TV and Great service from Sony

    By Johnnypdx

    from Portland Oregon

    Comments about Sony 42" Black 1080P LED HDTV:

    I was debating between Samsung and Sony when buying a new TV. I have always had Sony. I now own a Sony PC..for 3 years no problems. A 32" LCD..5 years old and no problems. Playing as nice as the day I bought it. I even have a Sony Walkman. My PS3 is great and blue ray on that system is number one. I soon hope to buy a new lap top and it will be from Sony. After buying this Sony TV I am so happy that I stayed with them. This TV is great at a great price. They gave me over night shipping free so I orderer it on Weds. an got it to my door the next day. Why did I really stay with Sony? #1...Always had very god luck with everything I own from Sony. #2...Their service Dept. is number one by me. Whenever I had to call them for help they were there and always very helpful. They seem to really care about you as a customer. That service counts a lot. Thank you again Sony and I will always buy Sony.

    Great TV, but could use additional inputs

    By Greasy

    from Cincinnati, OH

    Comments about Sony 42" Black 1080P LED HDTV:

    This is a very nice TV. I love the picture and sound quality. It is very easy to use right out of the box, and has tons of great features and is also an excellent value. However, there are only 3 inputs available on this TV, plus the RF (Coaxial) input. It has 2 HDMI inputs, and a Component Video Input and that's it! If you have an older DVD player, or an older Video Game system that only has RCA or S-Video Connections, then you're pretty much out of luck. I had to connect my older video game system to an RF Modulator and then connect it to the TV via a Coaxial cable-something you shouldn't have to do in this day and age with a modern TV! All in all, a very nice TV that would be excellent if you are just planning to hook up a Cable Box and Blu-Ray player to. The very limited number of inputs is the one big drawback.
