I already posted this a week ago at £588 but it was expired. But since price has dropped another £20 and it's back in stock I think it's worth posting again.

That was the kdl40w4000 i believe. But this is still a great tv for the price

fab tv, good price, the price has steadily been dropping for a while, got mine with 5 yr warranty if that means anything.

HDTV test, sadly no 100hz which rules it out for me :(

Seems pretty hot to me! - Whats so special about 100hz and why would I miss it if I went with this TV?

Because I watch mainly football, which my CRT delivers superbly, but from my friends Samsung LCD the motion blur from his Sammy means that I will only buy a 100hz LCD or plasma to deal better with fast moving images

Didnt vote for this tv, however the deal itself is hot as far as this television goes but the tv is poor. Everyone seems to go for the "sony" make however this particular series of tvs has an inherant problem with motion blurring and smearing "apparently" due to firmware issues but i believe it is just the panels, i am a regular poster on AV forums ontop of the fact i spend days on end looking on tvs... why? cos im weird =(

Due it being a 1080p screen also, if your planning on watching it for normal television this tv will actually perform WORSE than a hd ready ( 720p ) set due to the image needing scaling twice as far referring back to my post here

http://www.hotukdeals.com/forums/showthread.php?p=3422385#post3422385

I explain why. But essentially If you want a tv for simply tv or games consoles look at the "hd ready" sets instead. I personally prefer all the plasma televisions the Panasonic px80 is a good bet and beats this television around quite a bit. The LG42PG6000 plasma is also a great television.

If you want a computer monitor or a set for *only* blu rays then i would personally take a look at the samsung sets they deal with motion much better and have better black levels. Ontop of the fact they support 1080p over VGA computer connection which no other televisions seem to do.

Any questions feel free to PM me but i personally DONT rate this set. But if you must have a sony then i guess heres your chance for under £600 :thumbsup:

I have this TV for over a month now and have no problems watching SD TV I think its a great set only use it for TV and DVD . Hope to upgrade to a PS3/ blu ray player after Christmas so things can only get better. Great TV for a very good price

I bought this tv under the £599 deal with an extra £99 for the Sony BDP-350 Blu Ray player and it gives an astonishing hi-def picture. Voted hot.
#13
I had this TV a couple of months back from Empire Direct for £599 with 5yr warranty. Fantastic TV. If you have the TV setup correctly, there will be no motion blur at all. HD looks fantastic - extremely crisp and smooth, and SD is really good too, even on poorer channels. The only TVs imo that gave as good a picture cost nearer £1000. I'm surprised no joker has come along yet saying full HD isn't important on a 40" :D

I agree! This TV has a fantastic picture if set up correctly. I have compared many TV's in deciding to buy this, and even now still compare, I have yet to find one that has a better picture for the price! I look at friends and familys tv's which were all more expensive and cringe at the picture quality and feel safe in the knowledge I picked the correct one!:-D

Recently voted best TV on channel 5's Gadget show.

Im on my 3rd Bravia (keep upgrading to bigger and better models when I can afford it) and I wouldnt look at any other tv... looks amazing with sky hd, ps3 and xb360... standard def is fine also as most bravias come with built in freeview anyway!!! Buy buy buy :)

I ordered this TV last week for £588 inc delivery. Just a tip for any one else who order at this price, I phone Digital Direct early and they said once the TV has been delivered if I phone back they will credit me for the reduction in price. So getting the TV for only £569 delivered. Cant say fairer than that.

As mentioned previously it was the KDL40W4000 that was rated best on the Gadget Show, which can be had for around the £700 mark.

This is still a great set however and performs better than most when used to view both HD & SD sources. It's a bargain at this price and is also superb when used for gaming. The input lag is about the same as a CRT, which is superb for an LCD. :)

Reviews state this is a good mid-range television, which is about right for this set. It isn't amazing, nor does it outperform similar sets around the same price, but it will satisfy most viewers. Just don't buy this under the assumption it is one of the best TVs in the market. For that you'll want the 40W4000 (There is a huge difference between the V and the W!).

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.

There is very little diferance between the V4000 and the W4000 both have a Contrast ratio of 33000:1 and both have 24p True Cinema...the W has 10bit colour and the V has 8bit but as blue ray only has 8bit the 10bit is nether here nor there.

The 4500 range are the much superior 50,000:1 and 100htz TV's
#23
^ Totally agree I went into a sony centre thinking this tv will be the one i buy but the extra £100 for the W was more than worth it, you really can tell the difference.
#24
Has anyone who ordered this TV actually had it delivered yet? I ordered mine on the 11th Dec morning just rang them and alltho they say they have it in stock they still havn't even despatched it yet. :-(
#25
Ordered last Friday and arrived today. It's for my dad, set it up and looks great. I've got the W and don't think there's much difference.

the price is £569 with a 3 year warranty. They are out of stock until the 3rd week of january. Great tv for the money.

the only difference between these is the w4000 has a usb and a xrossmediabar menu system
not really worth paying the extra. i suppose it looks better.
