Bravia KDL40R553CBU

 

Good picture quality

Sound quality not so good

Reliable picture. It has 2xUSB sockets which can play and record media. The best bit:uses wifi direct to deliver all the stuff from your local computer network at the press of some buttons. Audio improves greatly by the addition of a subwoofer.

Dreadful instruction manual. Opera TV store is absolute rubbish - no decent apps - no browser. Internet pretty much limited to iPlayer and You Tube, oh and it's got a Netflix button!

Has a great picture and sound.

There is very little point in the dedicated Netflix button if you are a BT customer with a home hub 3 as they simply aren't compatible. Sony blame BT, and BT blame Sony. End result, can't watch Netflix on my tv, but can on my tablet. Very disappointing.

low operating temperature of kit particularly the transformer , compared with Samsung we had before which was very good.

Would have preferred a silver surround to the screen but it's a small point. It had the best picture in the showroom
