Sony KDL-40EX713


Great picture on HD and SD sources ; Sound surprisingly good ; Looks great on or off

Wireless internet requires separate dongle - why not built in ; Slight delay on startup before menus, channel selection work ; Fussy about video formats on USB sticks

Sony KDL-40EX713


Easy to set up -- loved the WiFi connectivity built in. Lightweight and easy to position in an awkward place. Cable ties were a nice touch

Sound quality is dreadful. However, have hooked up a Sony BDVEF200.CEK 2.1ch 3D Blu-Ray Disc/DVD Home Cinema 350W, BRAVIA Internet Video Enhancer and it transformed my experience

Sony KDL-40EX713


Superb screen. Comprehensive set up options, once you've worked out how to use them ; Good looking and slim. Excellent freeview tuner ; Cannot comment accurately on sound as I don't normally use the tv speakers

A little complex to use - but simplifying would be difficult without loosing features ; Internet ready" an annoyingly misleading term as other parts are needed to facilitate this

Sony KDL-40EX713


Slim form format, even a big screen is not imposing in the room ; Easy to use controls ; Good quality picture

Sound quality is not great ; Lack of ITV player and other UK channels on the Internet video is annoying

Sony KDL-40EX713


The help guide is difficult to understand unless you are technically minded ; Whilst a firmware download has been issued to permit BBC i player, there has been no other downloads for ITV i player, Channel 4 DOD or Skype. The quicker this issue is...
