Do you know which model this is?

Hi Thanks

Sorry thought I'd included it...it is the Sony KDL40U2000 - 40" Widescreen Bravia HD Ready LCD TV - With Freeview

Have it set up and can't complain for that price!

That's an excellent price for the TV and I reckon you have a definite bargain at that price :)

#8

Thats an amazing bargain..... anyone know whether the Bedford or Milton Keynes Sainsburys do TV's?

They are the only other ones I can get too and I know the Northampton ones don't stock the TV's.
#10
Careful !

The model listed does not do 1080i
The Sony KDL40W2000 and Sony KDL40X2000 do 1080i
not this Sony KDL40U2000

They retail for 1200 and 1800 respectively at the cheapest on Kelkoo

Still great at the price you got it at, well done.
#11
Over the last few weeks has been 899 ('300 off') at our local Sains, I guess if none left tomorrow it means it has been reduced further.

I know that Sixfields Certainly does stock TV's, albeit just a few - I remember there once being a 40" bravia in there :?
#14
don't they say that the human eye couldn't tell the difference between 720p and 1080p on your standard 32" tv? or am i remembering that wrongly?
banned#15
One HDMI? Seems a little dated also
#16
If this is your first flat panel then it's a great deal but as an upgrade it's somewhat end of life.

Nonetheless a hot little deal.
#17
Can anyone find a review of this TV, I might try and get one to replace my 32" LCD, big question is, whats the SD PQ like I wonder ?
#18
very nice price but i'm goin for the w2000 with 1080p if anyone sees that cheap be sure to let me no cheers. very tempting though good spot

At 32" I'd agree with that. This is a 40" telly though.:thumbsup:

I have 42" and 32" Panasonics and cannot see much if any differeence between 1080i and 720p so I would not be at all concerned about the lack of 1080p support. This is a VERY hot deal.

I believe you are meant to use one mode for fast moving action such as sport and the other for general TV watching...
#22
seems like a bargain:thumbsup:

the closest review i can find is for the kld40v2000, which is the next model up. but the spec is very much the same:roll:

This is the very basic TV hence the one HDMI.

This might help with the codes:

Here is a typical Sony LCD model number

KDL46V2000U

This number can be split up into 5 different parts - KDL - 46 - V - 2000 - U

KDL

The first part tells you about the TV's tuner. KLV- means an Analogue tuner. KDL- means that the TV is equipped with a digital one and can pick up Digital Terrestrial broadcasts ("Freeview" in the UK).

46

This is the size of the screen in inches.

V

This is the series number. There are 6 different letters that you can find here (U, S, V, X, W & E).

The U-Series:
The "value" range. The bottom range, designed to be cheap and sold at supermarkets and the like.

The S-Series:
One step up. The new S-Series models (KDL-xxS2000) feature the BRAVIA Engine technology. The older ones (KDL-SxxA12) do not.

The V-Series:
This is the affordable higher end option. They have always featured picture cleanup technology. The first BRAVIAs used "WEGA Engine", but the new ones use "BRAVIA Engine". The upcoming "V2000" versions also feature the new "Live Colour Creation" backlight, which apparently produces far better colour reproduction.

The X-Series :
These are the best ones available but only come in 40" and above sizes. They take the features of the V-Series, add full high-def (1920x1280) screen resolution, 2x HDMI inputs, and 2x Component inputs. The picture quality is also slightly better than the V-Series. The X-Series also features BRAVIA ENGINE EX and Digital Reality Creation, which are both included to enhance the quality of the picture specifically for large, high-res panels.

The W-Series:
They feature the S-Master digital amplifier, 1366x768 resolution, and 1 HDMI input. They are still one of the "prestigious" Sony models.

The E - Series:
These are the Rear Projection TVs that are based off an LCD technology.

2000

This is the colour of the TV's casing and does not change the technical spec of the TV.

2000 - Grey
2010 - Dark Grey
2020 - Silver

U

The "U" suffix means "United Kingdom". Continental Europe has the "E" suffix.
#26
The title states Bravia. So what is the difference between this 'U' and an 'S' model ?

See the post right before yours, its all in there.

being thick here whot is the difrence between 1080i and 1080p..........
(:
#29
I cant see this offer on the sainsburys website !
#30
1080i is an interlaced picture, in each frame of an interlaced picture only half the number of lines you see is displayed and in the next frame the other half are, being that we have normally 24/25 Frames Per Second (fps) in PAL video its un-noticable to most who have never seen a progressive image on their TV

however 1080p is a progressive scan picture where all the lines are displayed on each frame. It produces a MUCH better picture and shows no motion lag!

I would personally ALWAYS watch a progressive source over an interlaced source, chosing 720p over 1080i

720p and 1080p are the best though, and it takes a big screen (37" above) and a keen eye to tell the difference from normal viewing distance.

just FYI normal digital freeview tv is 576i, so you get approximately twice as much extra detail with 1080i, and most dvd players can display a progressive scan image at 576p if connected to your TV via component cables rather than SCART, so always worth checking as its a great improvement over a scart connection for the progressive scan :) especially as standard definition looks crap on most HDTVs

If anyone spots one in the cheshire area could somebody please let me know
thanks.
#32
I have just phoned my local store and they have advised the cost is £899.99 reduced from £1299....Still looking .
Anyone else had the same response?
#33
rayman
It does do 1080i but not 1080p :)


It is a wxga panel (1366 x 768).

It might take 1080 signals and convert them down but it doesn't have the resolution to display 1080 lines.

The link rayman provided shows this as do others.
