HD1080p
HD 1080p offers you very high resolution to generate it’s picture. The ‘p’ stands for ‘progressive scan’, which scans all the lines at once to add stability & smoothness to fast-moving images. This makes 1080p TV’s excellent for sport broadcast & games.

Integrated Digital Tuner / Freeview
Having an integrated Digital Freeview Tuner means that your TV has a built in receiver that will give you access to many more channels without the need to have any additional hardware, such as a Freeview box. In 2007, the government began switching UK broadcasting to digital, so if your TV doesn’t have an integrated digital tuner feature you wont be able to view any channel without buying the additional hardware.

BRAVIA Engine 2
You can’t have too much of a good thing, so we designed BRAVIA ENGINE 2. By using our most innovative technologies like intelligent noise reduction and Advanced Contrast Enhancer, BRAVIA ENGINE 2 builds on the power of the acclaimed BRAVIA ENGINE and adds four new image processing stages. What’s more, BRAVIA ENGINE 2 incorporates full digital signal processing, which means that it can enhance many different signals.


Dynamic Contrast
Contrast ratio is improved and all shades between the brightest white and the darkest blacks are maintained, so the picture has more depth and detail.

This is achieved as the backlight brightness adjusts according to the brightness of the scene. Sony’s unique dynamic contrast system features ACE (advanced contrast enhancer) which ensures all of the subtle shades of grey are maintained. The L4000 Series delivers a Dynamic Contrast Ratio of 33,000:1.


BRAVIA Sync
BRAVIA Sync enables the control of your TV and peripheral devices with a single BRAVIA remote through menus displayed on your BRAVIA LCD TV.

It is supported by selected Sony Home Theatre Systems, Blu-ray Disc players, Audio/Video Receivers and Handycam®. Please check the specification of your other Sony products to ensure that it includes BRAVIA Sync.

HDMI Sockets
The L4000 Series has 2 X HDMI Sockets.

Your HDMI socket provides a connection point on your TV that is able to deliver a high definition picture. Quite simply, the more HDMI sockets that you have on your BRAVIA LCD TV, the more components you are able to link up to for HD picture quality, for instance, a Blu-ray player, your camcorder and your gaming console. Having the socket located in the front of the TV means that you no longer have to get into awkward positions or move the unit in order to gain access to the connection point, great if you’re viewing your photos on your TV via your digital camera.


Photo TV HD
Photo TV HD picture processing technology designed to faithfully reproduce the natural beauty of your still images when viewed on your HD Ready 1080p BRAVIA LCD TV. Whereas all other TVs have technology designed to optimise video images, the BRAVIA L4000 has BRAVIA Engine 2 for viewing videos and Photo TV HD for viewing still images.

In order to enjoy PhotoTV HD, the PhotoTV HD-compatible TV and device need to be connected either with component or HDMI. Connection through component requires the user to manually select the Photo picture mode. When connected via HDMI, the television will automatically switch to Photo mode.


24P True Cinema
'24p True Cinema' mode, is a perfect match for movies. Film is shot at 24 frames per second, but UK televisions operate at 25 frames per second. This means that when you watch a movie on DVD, you are seeing it sped up by 4 per cent. '24p True Cinema' enables the panel to display films at their intended 24fps (frames per second).

what does L mean in 40L4000

does it ,ean low spec ?

is it as good as 40V4000 and 40W4000 ?
#7
The L is a lower spec than the V, which is lower than the W. If you need a quick look at the L, it seems to be the one that Sainsburys are knocking out and Tesco have it also.

See the Richer Sounds thread (or Sony UK) for the differences. The 'L' is more basic than the 'V', 'W' is better, 'X' is better still, but some of the extra features on the more expensive models are things I can live without.

I'd agree there are things you can live without on the L but the more expensive sets are very good at what they do if you have the money to burn!!

For the money though I wouldn't argue with getting this set as although the V is only 'marginally' superior. Both sets have the same picture quality but the V looks different externally and has some additional socketry which its main difference to the L.
#10
Only real difference between L and V is V has slightly less boarder and has a Piano black finish ( Shiny ) and it also has an extra HDMI on the side.

Other than that they share the same internal screen and produce the same quality image.

The W has a couple of extra sound modes and probably picture modes has well.

I have the L and it's excellent and at this price it's a steel, Reviews are very good too.

Any views on this compares with the Samsung equivalent that Amazon are now knocking out at around the same price ?

Sony do awesome tv's.

Both have excellent reviews and not much between them, The Samsung is reported to not pick up Freeview channels very well and sometimes blocks them out.

The Sony remote looks very nice and certainly better than the one that comes with the Samsung.

I suppose it comes down to which brand you prefer, I'd choose Sony over Samsung personally but Samsung are obviously a powerful brand too.

It's probably a win win what ever one you choose.

Are you serious? How could you compare sony to crapsung? Thats like asking is there a review comparing a honda to a dawoo..

Before all you samsung fanboys start on me, i got a crapsung HD tv, well got it through work for next to nothing.. Wish i didn't, man, even the remote! How awfull can a remote be? You will know once you used a crapsung one! :)
#15
not a bad price, but people seem to be as excited as if they were offering a 40W4000 for this price... the L series is a couple of generations ago and they are effectively clearing old stock...

it's definitely a fair price for this TV, but the 40W4000 current price of £726 at amazon (a recent £50 price drop) - which should be about £712 after VAT discount - is actually a better deal than this imho, for what you get...
#16
To those who said it has excellent reviews, do you have any links as I can't find any?
#17
Anyone know what warranty you get with this?

Haha, Nice one Shock but I disagree, I've got a Sammy and it's great, also you might want to check where the Sony panel comes from you might just find that that's a sammy in there!

Sony have had a "L Series" "V Series" and "W Series" for a while, Like Ford had "Encore" "LX" and "Ghia" for example.

An L series isn't any older than the V or W.

It's the 4000 bit that indicates the age, Now theirs the Sony 4500.
#23
This is a superb price, and isn't old stock this is Sony's current generation entry level 1080p TV, and is currently £899 on their own website!

I think I'd rather fork out a that extra for a TV that is one of the best out at the moment for the price.

:) I know both sony and samsung own a joint venture panel plant. But that doesn't mean its the same display you get in the end.
Bit like BMW and chrysler owned a joint engine plant, but BMWs are no chryslers!

I'm sure you can't but 200 quid more isn't exactly pocket change is it? Especially given the fact your average joe probably couldn't tell the difference.

only diff is piano black finish and xtra hdmi port. not worth payin extra £150

Interesting how the L version is not here http://www.soundandvision.co.uk/tv/lcd/40inch

I'm starting to look at this seriously now, was lookin gat a 19" lcd for my room for £150, but for £500 flatscreen for the living room might be worth it.

I've used these sizes at work, games look good these sizes still, but never considered buying for home till now. I have to say one reason it puts me off is that you can spend loads on these size tvs and with the right resolutions and normal tv just looks **** on them. Even worse than a normal screen. I don't know why, must be to do with resolution and not broadcasting in HD but I saw an episode of heroes on one and it looked entirely different, like it had been filmed using no fx and done in drama school soap style. Saw the same episode but an 720p version later on my laptop and it was way better. I'd hate to think all programming was like this.

Do not buy in dec 2008 or Jan 2009
Wait 90 days (3 months- march 2009) to buy a HDTV, as prices will dramatically fall.
You will regret for not waiting.
