Great mid-range choice


Prices on this model vary widely - shop around. (NewEgg sale was among the lowest!) This set can be a lot brighter than many other comparable sets. Keep this in mind when setting up your viewing area.

Excellent picture, strong color saturation, very bright and lots of connections available. I think there is a total of 7 inputs, 2 outputs, plus various sound configuraitons ; Setup menus make configuration fairly easy ; New color filters and GAMUT...

Pixel response is sometimes slow, causing pixellation or ghosting if there is a lot of action. (Gaming, action movies)

Sony BRAVIA KDL-40V2500


Sync(Optical Out) it with a Sony home theater. No technical problems up to know (6 months) and a lot of fun watching it. Picture looks good when playing games like the sony PS3 or playing blu-ray movies. Not so good with regular cable or satellite tv...

A lot of Inputs

Picture Quality Good not Great
