Product Information
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.

Great price for 40" Full HD. Only thing that lets it down is lack of pc input or DVI, but thats dependant on what you want to use it for :)

someone posted info regarding the '5y guarantee' with John Lewis the other week saying...it's a pile of krap basically...they won't replace your set and will only send it to Sony for repair...not my words but it was posted.
#8
To someone who has this/knows their stuff!!

The TV has Picture in Picture and Picture&Picture support (which the other tvs recently on this forum didnt have). Does this mean that I could play my 360 through hdmi and either pc through vga or dvd through hdmi and see both pictures at the same time? Many thanks in advance!!!

and that's a problem? surely the main thing is that it gets fixed (and that it's fixed for free)! :whistling: (not that it 'should' break anyway, it's more peace of mind - I've had Sony sets for years and never had 1 break)

I have used Jl Gty int the past, a local company came over and wanted to take it away, so I asked for a like for like tv was left as a loan. I have to say It was a good experience, hence waited to buy from JL again, this is my third tv in 10 years and my mother has had two too. :thumbsup:

Excellent deal!!!

Was toying with paying 600 for this from Lewis earlier today simply because of the 5 year warranty. Argos have the same TV for 548 with the one year Sony warranty.

Many thanks OP.

Heat + Rep added

Very good price, I'm looking forward to LCD prices coming down permanently for the next year :).

IMO the Panasonic TH42PX80B is still a better buy, especially being 2 inches bigger too (oo err :D).
#18
Good price. Was looking at this on the RS site this morning where it's £499 or £549 with warranty. I'd probably buy one if I wasn't moving house soon...

Well according to the 1979 Sales of Goods act, if you were to buy an electrical television it should work for its expected life, around 5 years.

Sony store website says 3x HDMI™ sockets, PC connectivity, 1x Component and 2x SCART sockets. you will be able to connect your PC via the VGA socket which most of these TV;s have,

Errrrrr where did you get this 5 years from (in the Sales of Goods Act itself?) I expect a TV to last more than 5 years and my last one (Panasonic) is still going strong after 12 years.

I've been meaning to get a new HD TV but my 10+year old Samsung 28" CRT shows no signs of dying on me. Got it at the time from DSG with 5year guarantee for £150!
Tempted by this though...
#25
excellent price:thumbsup:
#26
Does anyone know if I'll be able to use my existing bracket (it's one of those up to 50 inch universal jobbies) So i.e has it got screw holes in the back for the bracket?
#27
Fantastic price for this TV. I'd buy one but I bought the 37LG3000 for £399 + 3 year warranty. Heat added

That one is only 720p isn't it?
#29
How do you get to this on the John Lewis website? I can see the low price if I go through the link given here, but if I go direct to the John Lewis website all of the prices I see (including for this TV) are still really high?
Good deal on this TV, but I fancy a different model and want to know whether that's been reduced too so any help would be appreciated.

Errrrrr where did you get this 5 years from (in the Sales of Goods Act itself?) I expect a TV to last more than 5 years and my last one (Panasonic) is still going strong after 12 years.

the sale of goods act states that
items should be fit for purpose of which they were designed for
(this basically means you wouldnt expect an oil filter to last longer than a year, but you would a tv)
and last a reasonable amount of time
the 1st years warranty is with the shop you purchased it
well its really 28 days but they can deal with it on your behalf for the 1st 12 months
you then contact the manufacturer after the 1st year
they have a legal obligation i.e the sales of goods act
and you have upto 6 years to be able to take them to court, 5 years in scotland
although i think you would probally struggle after say 3 years though
yiu would probally have to take them to a small claims court
shops obviosly dont advertise this has it would cost them millions in lost revenue
hope this clears things up

Excellent find. Just ordered one as well with delivery scheduled for the the 2nd of January.

Thanks :thumbsup:

6 years actually - • For up to six years after purchase (five years from discovery in Scotland) purchasers can demand damages (which a court would equate to the cost of a repair or replacement).

http://www.berr.gov.uk/whatwedo/consumers/fact-sheets/page38311.html

I recently had to quote this in a recent letter to John Lewis after my CRT packed up after 4 years 8 months into its 5 year warranty. After alot of hassle I got 70% of my purchase price towards a new one - £499. I paid an extra £425 to get a 42" plasma with a blu-ray package worth £924, not bad for a replacement for a 32" CRT. It did take over a month to sort out though.

Hey,

Is this better or worse than the Panasonic TH42PX80B and why?

Thanks :thumbsup:


The sony is a LCD - 1080 HD , the panasonic is not HD but a Plasma.

do a bit of googling into the Plasma vs LCD , I'd go for a plasma but I am always wrong - ask the wife

How does the V series compare to the U and various other series in Sony's range of TVs?

This is hot. If I had space for another LCD/Plasma I would get one. Also, my wife would absolutely kill me.

This is a hot deal for this price, bt I do think the TH42PX80B is prolly a better TV for both HD and Non HD sources, but its not Full HD (1080p).

So if you think you can tell the diff between 1080i and 1080p (and obv use a lot of 1080p eg.. PS3 and blu ray and new games) then this is really good, if not try to get the panny

Or get both and forget about this so called "credit crisis" hehe
