good price

Great price
#3
Compared to the 503 that won all the awards, this model is led, and discontinued, which has had a few bad reviews, but a really great deal. Would recommend a decent guarantee period though.
#4
if i recall this one dosent have freeview HD only std Freeview.
#5
Most definitely is Freeview HD Sony Website. Biggest issue from Revoo people seems to be the sound which is typical from these LED screens.

Anything from Pc World or Currys that ends in .97p is clearance, so you will have trouble finding boxed stock. Also, the collect at store only works if the branch has 3 or more in stock so your best bet is to go into a store and they can check the area for you as a store may have 2 (1 on display, 1 boxed) its a long shot though...

Just to make it clear on this one, this is not an LED tv, this is an LCD screen with LED BACKLIGHTING

i know, but if it was an LED screen, it would still be advertised as an LED tv, like these are
#16
I have this one and have no complaints. The sound is actually OK. The picture quality is very good although SD sources tend to show pixellation. At this price, it's a steal and certainly better than the ex503.
#17
another one currys and pc world have conveniently left as available for home delivery when there is no stock
any one actually get one?
#18
super deal, thanks
#19
The 503 and 703 both use the same panel, however the 703 has glass front meaning it is both more reflective and blacks look more washed out.

Picture wise I would say they are pretty equal, although being an LED TV I would imagine the 703 would have a greater resale value if you sell it in a couple of years.

Both suffer from input lag (downside if your a gamer) and limited viewing angle, but both are very good sets and in truth there is little between them.

Personally I would go for a 503, as you can get a package with a Blu-ray player for a similar price as this. But I still consider this a very good deal
#20
Bought one of these a few weeks back, and whilst i'm happy with the picture quality the streaming of my own video is less than useless as the file formats are only mp2 and acvd. it does have an ethernet port as well as being wireless so streaming can be fast. Great Price i paid 600. they are still in John Lewis at 800, Voting Hot

I agree shops should not sell backlit/Edge lit as an LED TV as it does mislead the public. But currently when people talk about LED tvs they are talking about those which are backlit.

The cheapest true LED TVs starts around 1K (for an 11" screen) I am not even sure you can buy a true LED (OLED) Tv in your typical high street store

Care to share where these packages are? Been after a 503 for ages, but this is tempting if I can find stock anywhere.

4 months ago M&S were selling a package for 600 (with a 5 year warranty) on a deal I posted
http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/sony-bravia-40-kdl-40ex503-blu-ray/788165

But I ended up getting mine at the Sony center up in Edinburgh last month for £550. I have no idea if its nation wide or even if they still have the offer. But that is the price you should be aiming for.

Surprisingly I think quite a few people do think "LED tv" means it doesn't have an LCD panel and presumably don't understand that attaching the words "LED" to a tv doesn't instantly make it superior in every way to every non-LED tv.
#26
Bought the 46 inch version from John Lewis about three years ago and had to have it changed last week, developed black streaks on the screen, bought a Samsung instead.
Good points about this deal 5 year guarantee

Possible bad point you might need it
There are numerous reports on the web about this screen failure try google for Sony Bravia black streaks

Did not live up to the image IMHO

Cheers, I'm in Edinburgh myself so will take a look. Was that the Shandwick Place one you went to out of interest?

none available near me

A few people have said this is discontinued, while this is true pretty much the whole range is discontinued (or due to be very soon) and will be replaced with the ex/nx/hx/lx/ x23s

The 503 does. According to Sony it has 'Motionflow 100Hz with Image Blur Reduction' see http://www.sony.co.uk/product/t32-ex-series/kdl-40ex503#pageType=Overview

Is anyone struggling with the PCWorld / Currys site - I can't seem to check stock or buy :(
#34
same here I cannot select pick up at store and when selecting deliver it goes back to the home page an empty my trolley :(
#35

Not sure how this is relevant as the product you bought 3 years ago wasn't the 46" version of this TV ... or are you simply saying all Bravia TV's are gash.:{


Also this tv doesn't have a 5 year Warranty so I can only guess that you have stumbled onto the wrong thread.(_;)

I've decided not to bother. While it's a very good price (if you can get one), I'd rather make sure I get one with a 5yr warranty just in case those thin black lines appear. They'll no doubt be cheaper at the Sony shop or John Lewis soon when they are trying to shift stock when the new range is available.
#38
Phoned cs and they state that the product is discontinuted and not available for purchase :(

pixellation on a new led tv???...

I Bought this Tv from Comet for £705 (£684 after quidco) last July, and this was by far the cheapest price at the time. So this price is hot as hell. It's a fantastic set, great picture, and no ghosting or dark spots whatsoever, as reported by some people at the time of purchase.
Buy it, you won't be disapointed. ;)
