Features

  • Full HD 1080p
    Nothing expresses crystal-clear detail like Full HD 1080p picture quality. Take 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
  • Bright and slim
    Powerful yet thin LEDs deliver a brighter picture than conventional LCD backlighting. They also help achieve a slimmer TV design that looks beautiful in your home. What's more, Sony's Direct LED Backlight technology delivers outstanding contrast, rich colors and enhanced dark-scene detail
  • 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
  • Your smartphone, now on TV
    Movies, music and apps from your smartphone can now be viewed big on your TV. With the smartphone ready R450A, Sony is helping you add value to the entertainment you already own. Using a Mobile High Definition Link cable, you can connect your smartphone to the TV to literally “mirror” what’s seen on the smartphone screen. Video, photos and apps are re-sized and scaled to fit the larger TV screen. You can then use the TV remote to navigate the phone, while it’s charging from the TV
  • USB input for your camera and more
    Share your vacation photos instantly on the big screen or listen to your favorite music. Simply connect your compatible digital camera, USB-enabled MP3 player or USB storage device directly to your HDTV's USB input. It's a fast and simple way to relive the memories without a hassle. Even choose between slideshow, clock and calendar viewing modes
  • 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
  • Photos on the big screen
    Turn your TV into a super-size digital photo frame. Connect a digital camera, USB thumb drive or cloud photo services. Then enjoy your photo collection with a choice of attractive slideshow, clock and calendar display modes
  • 3 HD inputs

I had a very nice 32" Sony with the same great picture. Since my mother's TV quit working, I gave her mine. I am a Sony person, so I bought this 40" since it was on sale and a basic model. I just wish it had 2 or 3 HDMI's in the back. I don't like using the side ones. Of course, I had to attach my excellent sounding $99 Bose speakers. I also had to figure out how to adjust one of the figurations so I could increase the sound to the speakers. It took me a few days to figure that out. The sound is the main drawback to flat panels, unless they are very expensive w/speakers. I would highly recommend this size for bedrooms, which I had to get used to at first. The sound is okay, unless you have sensitive hearing like me and need clarity of sounds, which the Bose speakers give me. I just have to turn volume down for the very annoying commercials.

Picture Quality is so so. Go for a 120

Should go with 120Hz. Picture is not as crisp and clear as I had hoped.

      Comments about Sony 40" Black 1080P LED HDTV:

      I purchased this model to replace an ancient Sony tube television that just wouldn't die. We mounted this to the wall of my narrow living room, and it is the perfect size for viewing from a mere 9 feet away. Currently, the TV is hooked up to a DVD player, Nintendo Wii, and TiVo. Please note that there is space to hook up only one set of composite (red/white/yellow) cables, but we overcame this limitation by running the DVD player and Nintendo cables into a small switching device.

      The picture quality was amazing right out of the box. I was particularly relieved that Sony's Motionflow technology (at the default setting) doesn't seem to cause the dreaded "soap opera effect" that I loathe on so many other televisions. I considered purchasing other, less expensive brands, but when I found this model at such a great price, the decision was easy.

      Service and delivery comments:

      Delivery was prompt, and the product was in pristine condition upon its arrival.

        Comments about Sony 40" Black 1080P LED HDTV:

        This is our second 40" SONY flat-screen HDTV purchased from ABT for out winter home. We prefer this LED HDTV to the LCD HDTV. LED seems to have better sound and a crystal-clear picture. We do not use either flat screen with other electronic devices. They are solely for the purpose of watching but never recording movies and other TV programs. We are VERY HAPPY with all of our SONY TVs... the only TV brand we have purchased during the past 10 years. We also purchased several years ago two Sony 40" LCD HDTVs for two rental properties. Our renters enjoy the upgrade from analog TVs. FREE SHIPPING and NO TAX on these items to Florida and PA were a big reason we purchased these from ABT along with a competitive price and great customer service.

        I use this TV in my bedroom. I found this TV is the perfect size for the bedroom. Good picture quality and sound. Not many fancy options, but it has whatever is needed. I found no need of additional sound speakers since TV speakers are good enough.

        I use this TV with Apple TV and I found TV remote is confusing especially with the volume button. Volume button is way below and I always click the channel button in the middle of the remote to reduce the sound.

        Overall I am happy and wish Sony quality will give this TV at least 5 years of life unless like Samsung.
