The smart Sony KDL40V4000 features the latest Bravia 2 engine to give you outstanding colours, high contrast images and amazing clarity. It has full 1080p HD capacity to deliver supremely realistic images from any HD source, while the 24p True Cinema mode allows you to enjoy Blu-Ray disks at the correct frame rate, meaning no image-degrading conversion is required. Complete with a large 40" display, this Sony a perfect buy for sports fans, documentary lovers and movie buffs alike.
Sony have given the KDL40V4000 an elegant, understated style - the screen is framed by the smallest possible surround, so the whole package won't dominate your living space - even with its large screen size.

The KDL40V4000 has an integrated digital tuner for access to Freeview channels without the need for a separate set-top box. Youll be able to access on-screen programme guides for easy planning of your viewing. A table top stand is included.

Dolby Virtual Surround Sound and 20 watts of power guarantee an involving listening experience, which will put you right in the middle of the action.

This television is high definition ready which means it has the ability to display high definition signals with the addition of a separate HD receiver. HD broadcasts are at a much higher resolution than regular analogue or digital broadcasts and have greatly enhanced picture quality. The level of detail is astonishing with clearer, sharper and more vibrant images.

1080p
1080p is the purest form of high definition that a television can display. This leads to a smoother, more film-like image, which will satisfy sports and movie lovers alike. With a 1080p signal, the information that makes up an image is displayed progressively or all at once, rather than in an interlaced fashion.

Would much rather get the KDL40w4000 plus blu ray player and 5 year warranty for an extra £150.

..... if you need a blu ray player that is.

I've got a ps3, so the extra player wouldn't be required.

Great telly - but the price is not so hot... Got it a few month ago with bluray player and 5 years warranty for £699.
#4
its been this price for months...
#5
their 5 year warranty is a joke.

if something goes wrong they'll repair the TV up to the market value of the set.
if it outweighs the market value, tough.
uneconomical to repair.

so if you get a problem and its fixable, whatever the total cost of that repair comes off the price of any remaining repairs to last you five years.

yep its free
better than nothing

but its a shady selling point

Mostly true, but the warranty also says 'If the manufacturer decides your product cannot be repaired, or is uneconomical to repair, they may at their option replace it with the same model. Should that model no longer be available, they may at their option provide an alternative of similar specification and quality' so it's not as bad as you make out and very similar in restrictions to most other warranties.

very true, its a lot of 'MAY' tho innit?
free warranties are very restrictive but they seem to be a selling point.

folk will always go for the free 5 year warranty with restrictions rather than paying for whats essentially a 'service contract' which guarantees speed of service, cover against accidental damage etc.

times are hard and if two retailers have the same tv the same price or even £50 cheaper, folk will go for the 5 year free warranty.

That deal is £849, this deal is £599, so thats £250 extra, unless my maths fails me :thinking:

arrgghh..this tv seems quite good, pretty much what im after for the money and has good reviews, but no idea what to do, i could get one through john lewis with 5 yr gurantee, or comet so i can get the £99 blue ray player, or dixons and get £10 discount and cashback...i'd quite like the blue ray player but could try and get one for £130 from the other offer...so bit confused at best deal for me at the min :(
#11
John Lewis also price match remember, upto a month after buying I think - my dad used this on his 32" Samsung and got £100 back when the price dropped elsewhere a few weeks later. He has also used the warranty and the tv was replaced within a week or 2.

the 5 year warranty is a nice selling point, and you should be able to get a price match so I'd always buy TV's and expensive items like this from John Lewis personally.
#12
Typical I read about the John Lewis 5-year warranty a day after I ordered for £599 from PC World. I wonder if it's too late to cancel. Is it really worth it though, I mean surely these things should last for ages, and they will only fix/replace in quite a limited set of circumstances.

my bro-in law paid £740 for this form currys just two weeks ago.....

Why exactly? The only major difference between the w4000 and v4000 is it has a usb photo viewer and a Wide Color Gamut - CCFL panel that supports x.v colour t, both of which are completely useless since no format (sky,dvd, even blu-ray) even uses it yet.

If your going to spend an extra £250 you might as well stretch a bit further and get the w4500 which is 100hz, but even that technology is questionable since it produces artifacts and an 'unnatural' picture on anything other then 'min'. Plus you've got the whole clouding issues that plagues the W series.

Recent review of this set on the whathifi.com site:-

http://whathifi.com/Review/Sony-KDL-40V4000/

It's just been awarded the title of best budget TV for 40-42" class.

Would recommend with any modern TV that you pop along to a store and view it before you buy just so you know you'll be happy with it.

I have voted hot, as on paper this is a good deal. With some research, this TV has been out quite a while now, and I feel with the credit crunch hitting electronics by Xmas we could see better deals out there.

:?

What about this one.... newer technology

Rip-off for only 32"?

Got one of these in my bedroom. Awesome set for the price.

Mine has an ever so slight, barely noticable, motion blur when playing PES 2009 every so often. Other than that I have no complaints.
#23
A done deal. Thank you.:thumbsup:
#24
smiffy, u turned off the noise reduction etc? that sorts the motion blur issues on inputs that dont actually need it.
#25
Anyone any feeling if these are going to come down in Price from £599?

With the big retailers doing them for this £599, I would have expected the smaller retailers to have them for less?

If you take the 32 model, the KDL32V4000 this is £449 in John Lewis, Curry's, etc, but can be had for around £365 with some retailers.

At the moment I can't find the 40" for less than £599
#26
Today--- Out of stock, then in stock. Then out of stock almost immediately.
#27
i cant imagine these dropping that much more...
#28
This is now £799 on their site. What's going on?
