i spotted this on amazon uk recently and thought it was a great deal for what your getting, as it gives you a 40 inch full hd quality tv with blu ray integrated and freeview high def integrated.
if bought seperately, these would cost much more.

The "wireless" function requires you to buy a Sony-only dongle which is almost £70, that's plain crazy (hence why I cannot accurately review how good the wireless streaming of YouTube/Five etc is)

Does this mean you willl need the dongle to update the Blu ray players software too I wonder???

If this had Freesat, I'd be tempted as I don't get a great Freeview reception. Nevertheless, it looks good value for money.

well if you need to go online using the wireless function, to update the blu ray player software, then i believe yes, you would need the dongle. however if you just wish to use the blu ray player with the quality given already, then you would not have to pay any extra fee. that is a good point actually mallinersha: when would you need to update the software. just wondering because i havent owned a blu ray player before.

Might be worth adding sony and model to the title, this is a hot deal

The continued evolution of Blu-ray player means the rise of incompatibility of new Blu-ray discs. Also, the constant DRM tweaking/updating of movie studios have raised the possibility that your Blu-ray player can’t correctly play the latest movies. If you buy the latest movies and your Blu-ray player can’t play them, there is good chance that you will need to update the firmware.

Firmware is type of computer program that is written for specific hardware such as computer or computer components. It controls the very basic parameters for hardware and thus can not be easily accessed by users. Manufactures can update Blu-ray players to play the latest movies and contents.

If you have Blu-ray player with the profile 2.0, you will most likely be able to update the firmware via simple internet download. This is because the profile 2.0 requires internet connection for BD-Live contents. However, if you own one of the older players with previous profiles then you will likely need to burn a CD or DVD to patch the firmware.


Might not ned the dongle to update the Blu ray in the future then...

oh right ok thanks, so it might be worth getting one of these dongles for future use. considering the price of this telly though, i think that it would be more than worth buying one. i think this tv is cheap when you consider what you are getting

I think you can plug it to internet via CAT5-network cable port these TV usually have.
HOT HOT HOT for me!

Not a bad buy, but personally I would go for the S20 Panasonic which you can get for 550 http://www.electrocentreltd.com/viewproduct.asp?pid=5953

Richer sounds do a Panasonic blue Ray combo with this TV for an extra 60.

It is 2 inches larger and has a far superior picture quality for both standard and HD definition. (deeper blacks and is 600 hz). But if your after an all in one solution, this is a good telly
#14
My concern with all in ones, is the BD player breaking, i imagine it woul dbe a lot more expensive to fix than simply throwing away a old Bluray player for a new one, kinda how i have done for teh dozen DVD players of the years.

I'd assume you'd be able to update the software via the tv's usb port.

Yeah it is 2 inch bigger and has not got Wifi and DLNA which are tomorrow's demand.

Bargain.......!

Not such a great deal, Toshiba RV753 is £448 on Amazon and almost identical specs but gives you the £125 spare to get a seperate Blu Ray player.
#19
My mistake, it would actually be nearer £170 spare given you can use the voucher for 10% off Toshiba TVs.

Point taken, It comes down to would you rather a better picture and better sound or would you rather the ability to stream media and watch youtube and BBC Iplayer

Purchased this tv the sony ex403 the week they came out in anticipation for the world cup and freeview hd. while the world cup and adrian chiles's face in hd were a let down, freeview hd itself is great.

This TV I'm very very happy with it. The style and build is very good, the remote control is fantastic, very well built and intuitive layout.

I use dlna to steam media from ps3 media server to this box and it works very well. You do need a dongle for wireless, however I use the network connection on the back direct to my router to support 1080p. Everything all on one remote, great!

More importantly the network connection allows me to watch bbc iplayer. An essential option for all tv's, when you've used it for a week, you'll not want to be without. It also has 5 on demand which i don't use very much, but the youtube is good and if i used lovefilm it's embedded into the tv so you can steam straight from them.

Cinema previews can be streamed which is nice i guess, i only wish you could add your own widgets, as I'd like to add freecaster, but anyway, this is a great tv :)

I think people are getting a little hung up on picture quality, its not like 5 years ago now where there are night and day differences. my old plasma panny phd9 series was very good for the time, but this sony i cannot tell the difference really they are both just good.
#24
This TV is based upon the KDL40EX403 do don't forget its not 100Hz and the contrast won't be as high as some of the other models and it is one of Sony's lower spec TVs.

Personally I think you're asking for trouble with a combi bluray/dvd in a TV, even if it is a Sony

Still a good deal though
#25
Does anyone know what files are compatible with the TV I.e. if I connected it to my Synology NAS via the network cable or wireless what would I be able to stream to it? I'm sure MP3s would work but would Wavs, FLACs DIVX, MP4 etc.
#26
I've got the 403 mate not quite the same tv but similar. check the sony site for the supported file types, however out the box its quite limited, I use ps3media centre to transcode into something the tv supports.
#27
thanks for the commnts guys but the bottom line is wether or not u get another blu ray player for a bit more money or other tv's are a bit bigger or a bit richer. this is still a bloody good deal and i personally think having all this rolled into one is an excellent bargain and causes less clutter at the end of the day.

thank you dirge, someone who has woke up and smelt the coffee. just because something is slighlty better doesnt always make a hell of a difference. this deal is still full hd at the end of the day with a good package to go with it and it causes less clutter, so we should be happy about that. but please everyone feel free to express your views

I would suggest the 40RV753 is probably 40" and the point was the price difference is more than enough to cover the cost of a blu ray plus change left over. The advantage being it's a seperate unit and easier to upgrade/replace if things move on/it breaks (delete as necessary).

I agree bluray players are dropping in price, plus DNLA is taking over.

Internet Tv is a bit of a waste imho, I have many pc's and a smart phone.

If the tv was 100 or 200hz and LED might consider it at this price.

annodomini, how do you know this is not 100hz and also it doesnt need a bit of light at the back of it to make the colours look nicer, its already got the technology to make the picture clearer. people arent just after the internet tv. in fact i bought this tv just purely to watch it in great quality. i also have the internet so i dont need the tv for that, like many others wont. so its not an issue. Also i'd like to add, again, that for what you are gettin here, this is an excellent deal, especially for those who arent goin to waste their money on something that has an extra bit of almost unrecognisable light or colour or picture quality than a full hd television.

I captured that shot late last night, I did not go through with a purchase, but it looks like it is no longer part of the sony offer.
#38
i'm unsure there is a 100hz version for a little less without the built in blueray player
