Decent budget television

 

Overall, this is a decent TV for watching television and movies. Sony's provided software comes with more options than other entry level TVs. Motion performance is not good, but I can't tell if that's standard for an entry level LCD, or if I'm just...

Great contrast ratio. Decent amount of options for an entry level television

Motion performance is average at best. This will likely only become an issue if you watch sports or play fast paced video games. The response time becomes a particular issue when temperatures drop. During the winter, my apartment is about 10 degrees...

Sony Bravia as good as expected; superb

 

I have used Bravia TV's at work and have always been impressed with the picture quality. I finally bought one for myself and I am just as pleased. I have other top brand TV's and have been pleased, but this one is definitely the best.

Simple Set Up, Cost, Picture Quality, Sharpness

Only 2 HDMI Ports

Sony Bravia 40" TV

 

Think before buying a high end TV from Newegg!!! The 40" TV that arrived broken and can't do anything with came with NO outside packing! I even ordered a 37" LG TV from Newegg and noticed there is a part of the TV rattling around inside! The ONLY TV I...

There is no Pros......Received bad TV and I am at a loss of $500

Received TV from Newegg, upon installiation, realized there was no picture AND there was a crack in the screen. Tried to RMA Newegg, no refunds or exchanges...Sony told me there is no warranty due to damage to the TV....I am out almost $500 plus...

Excellent basic 1080P TV

 

It's a great choice for a low end 1080P tv, especially if you have other Sony products(laptop, blu-ray), powering up blu-ray device will also power up Sony TV, and change TV input to blu-ray, very clever and convenient.

Great 1080P TV, colors are sharp, image is crip, with digital HDTV antenna gets great local HD channels

only 2 HDMI ports

bogus!

 

I was overjoyed to get my first flat screen tv ever. Sadly, when I turned it on a blinking green light came on, then nothing. I am beyond bummed out. My replacement is on the way but now I'm concerned that it won't even work. Fingers crossed...

Quick Shipment. Amazing.

 

This LCD was supposed to be my mother's day gift. Unfortunately, it arrived with a hole in the packaging box. Inside the back plastic panel of the LCD TV was broken. I refused the shipment and had it sent back. I called Newegg immediately , and the...

The shipment arrived the next day. Which is the only Pro here. The price I paid for this unit was pretty good

The packaging of the LCD TV arrived in damaged condition. Right where the box was torn, inside the plastic panel was broken

Underrated and Overlooked TV

 

Get this little TV for your room if it's not too big, enjoy.

This TV is by far one of the best LCDs at 40". I say this with direct comparisons to LG/Samsung(I'm talking about the one that's on newegg with the 5 egg rating which I have ALSO PURCHASED myself)/Vizio(junk). The only downside is that it has 2 HDMI...

There's only 2 HDMI ports, but because the pros outweigh the con by such an insurmountable margin, this TV is 5 eggs. I am a perfectionist, so I wouldn't have rated this 5 eggs if it didn't pass all my testings and comparisons
