Sony KDL-40EX401


Remote Control - Found the remote control to be very frustrating with regard to the 'double annulus' arrangement of buttons - Outer annulus for Guide, Return, Options etc and the inner annulus for selecting sub menu's etc. All to easy to inadvertantly...

Great Full Hd Telly


This is a great full hd tv. It does everything it states. The sound could be better & you need to customize the settings as defaults are not good.
