seems like a good deal for a sony 37"

The Sony KDL37EX401 is a bargain Sony 37 inch TV with Full 1080p HD and a performance that surpasses expectations.

Sony's BRAVIA technology has long been revered as giving class-leading picture quality, and the KDL-37EX401 is no exception. This impressive 37 inch Sony LCD comes equipped with a 1080p, Full HD TV screen with resolution so good that you only need to sit 1.5m away to experience grain-free, life like realism. A further picture enhancement is the Light Sensor. This automatically adjusts the brightness to create the ideal viewing atmosphere and save power, too. With all the BRAVIA essentials, the KDL37EX401 gives you the depth, vibrant colour and natural picture you'd expect from a quality Sony TV.

As TVs become ever slimmer the sound quality suffers. With any TV you'll benefit hugely from a separate sound system to match the enveloping picture. With this in mind the KDL37ex401's optical digital output and speaker off facility are ideal for integrating the TV with your home cinema system. The built-in digital amplifier with S-Force Front Surround gives a powerful sound by TV standards and Steady Sound adjusts the volume to balance out loud commercials.

Completing this top value TV you'll find all the input sockets you could reasonably need. Four HDMI sockets cover your HD sources, with one being side-mounted for occasional use with an HD games console or camcorder. Added to this you'll find a PC input, twin SCART sockets, component and composite for your analogue inputs and a USB socket. Simply plug in your digital camera or other media device and watch your photos and videos on the big screen.

For a Sony 37 inch TV that's got all the basics covered with the performance of a more expensive TV, take a look at the KDL37ex401. It's the top value-seekers choice.

Very nice price, shame it lacks Freeview HD. Don't seem to see 37" ones these days.
#2
What bravia engine is this?
#3
Great deal. 10% more for a 5 year warranty as well.

Why are 37" so much more expensive though?

Plenty of areas are without Freeview HD still anyways.
If you're that keen on having HD get freesat/sky/virgin or Freeview HD recorder.
Nice TV for the money, and especially good for those who are after 37"
I'd personally prefer a 42" but this is still Hot.

Decent price for this TV.

I have the KDL-37EX403 and it's excellent; AV forums says this on the differences between the EX401 and EX403 models:-
The new core range for the UK market which is 1080p.there are vital differencies between EX401 and EX403 however:
The EX403 has the following over the cheaper EX401:
-BRAVIA ENGINE 3 instead of BRAVIE ENGINE 2 for the EX401
-Wifi ready capability with a USB stick
-Bravia Internet Video
-DLNA
-Freeview HD vs simple freeview
-cosmetic differences


The only significant difference in my view is the Bravia 2/3 engine; but reviews on the 401 seem quite good so I'm not sure how much that hampers the 401.

Although DLNA and Internet video sound great they are quite limited in functionality and supported formats; in many ways you'd be better connecting a small pc to give that functionality and much more.

The photos on both websites actually show the 403 version, the 401 has dark silver matte finish along the bottom of the bezel, whereas the 403 has the glossy one as seen in the photos. Both look very nice nonetheless, but it's worth pointing out.

This TV gets a pretty rubbish review in WHF, which has a tendancy to be Sony lovers...

http://www.whathifi.com/Review/Sony-KDL-37EX401/

Meaning this tv must be a real pile of doggy poop. I would personally avoid and opt for the 40" screens with the much better panels.

I'd take any publication which informs its users that a £200 Power Supply/HDMI cable will improve your picture & sounds with a pinch of salt
#15
That WHF review is based on the tele costing £440 pounds, at that price I agree it wouldnt be hot, but at £330 (£110 less) I am sure WHF would have been singing its priases as best budget 37" name brand tele out there. Hot price for a decent but not amazing tele.

True , for Bravia 3 and Freeview HD I got 403 from PRC dirct for £ 389.99 , picture is mind blowing ...I feel spending 50£ extra would get u little more futuristic TV ...

As already stated, the panels on these are a different manufacturer to the 32 and 40 inch. Best avoided according to numerous reviews and opinions.
#18
not much different to the famous sainsbury deal on the 37 inch a year ago which I got for £399...
all these non freeview-hd models will be dropping prices now as DSO happens and freeview HD channels build up

I agree that was a good deal, the price had hiked at the start of Feb so I thought it had expired; but I see they have some in store back at the £389 price. The Sony 5 year warranty offer was supposed to end 31st Jan; presumably they've extended it.

I bought one and the TV is great; however the service I got from PRC when buying the TV was so dreadful I'm convinced I'd get no service from them if there are any issues...

For me a 32" was way too small and 40" too big for the furniture it had to fit on. I can't speak for the KDL-37EX401 but the KDL-37EX403 I bought is way better than I was led to expect from the reviews.
There are issues with blacks and motion when showing poor quality SD; but I saw that on all the panels I viewed in store.
I'm sure if I could compare it to a truly excellent panel I'd see it's flaws; but in ignorant isolation I'm very pleased with the 403.

Yes the warranty is until Tvs bought 31st March 2011. But hope u all know the 5 yrs warranty from Sony is for anny Parts change only , this does not include labour or any other charges associated to it.So either we need to take the TV to the repair center or they will charge all those extras.

PRC is hopeless in customer service , I met with a guy , who smeed to be quite young for the business,spoke like as if he is giving the TV for free. I had plans of buying Blue ray player too , but prices didnt see to be of uch diff and aso this sales guy was not so helpful enough , so thought will wait. But the TV is really good and I see SD channels , which is not bad copared with other panels..

wombat6025 - thanks for all the inputs on this TV .

My Sony 5-year guarantee form says it covers "cost of repairs to your equipment, including parts and labour charges following mechanical or electrical breakdown" - but you're right it doesn't mention shipping to/from the repair centre.

Interesting to see you had the same dreadful customer service from PRC - I really don't know why I ended up buying from them; I'd gone to the shop set to buy the TV having spent several weeks looking for deals and it was only as the helpful stores guy was loading the TV in my boot that I considered how appallingly rude the other store staff had been.

Alright if you sit in front of it, these Sony LCD's have a very narrow viewing angle. (I know cos' I've got one)
Better off spending and extra £20 and getting the Panasonic 37" plasma from same dealer IMO.
#25
the thing with 37" is that...you make a step up from 32 to 37 and you think...few inches more to 40" so most ppl I guess either settle for 32 or 40+

Quick question - I need a large monitor to hook up to a PC for demo purposes. The graphics card will support DVI & I can therefore get a DVI to HDMI adapter for video, but does this also have independent audio inputs that will work with DVI audio?

Thanks
