Depends what your perception of decent is. Some people seem to think that less well known makes (to them) are no all good & that the well known, overpriced brands are automatically better. That's marketing for you I guess.

Sony are still living off their rep from years and years ago. They've been going down hill for quite some time now, the masses just haven't cottoned on yet.

Doesn't change the fact that this is relatively cheap from TJ's.

I really can't see why this deal is so hot. The TV (in my opinion) looks hideous, I would hate to have that in my living room. And more than a year ago I got the 40v3000 from John Lewis (including 5 year warranty) for £600.

Is this TV far more special than that?

The 40v3000 is still £600+ isn't it?

I personally wouldn't buy an LCD over 26" due to the poor picture quality. But if you wanted a 40" LCD then this seems like a good deal to me.

Bought the 40V4000 from Amazon for £625 in November '08. Make of that what you will.

Thanks you so much, this is just what I was looking for and now I have ordered one!!!!!

you've not seen the W5500?

it's a killer tv

I was looking at this TV last week - it was in the John Lewis sale - can't remember how much though.

Apart from the cosmetic 'picture frame' look, it is essentially the same as the KDL-40W4000, which has a very good review here:

trustedreviews.com/tvs…/p1

Currently looking for a decent 40" TV myself - not an easy choice!

Well I've got my eye on this bad boy richersounds.com/pro…500 have seen it in Comet for about £1400 playing Transformers on blu-ray ant it looks awesome, but going to hold off a see if it comes down anymore, was £1800 before Christmas. Excellent review here hdtvtest.co.uk/new…htm and that was when the tv was full price.

Was after the 40w4500 but Sony have replaced it with the w5500 with an inferior lcd panel and can't find it cheaper anywhere.

I saw this in TJs yesterday, and I have to say the picture quality wasnt that good . Very grainy (playing a DVD). I would definalty avoid.

I'd go further and say £300 to get a decent 40" 1080p TV as you can get a Hitachi which is not a bad brand, with an extra 2" for £400 (Incl brand value) and before ppl cry out, read the numerous review. SO here we are paying an additional £300 for the badge.

Google cache of JL page around 25 June suggests ]it was £995.

why waste your money on garbage like this, if u want a tv, go instore and ask them to play a dvd on it, then you will see if its good or bad

Definately wasn't that much, think it was £699 - it was in the clearance section. Thought it was still overpriced though for the spec.

hotukdeals.com/ite…80/

this could be a good option, personally prefer Panasonic Plasmas to Sony's

good price :d voted hot

That might be true if all the sets were calibrated by a professional or by a keen amateur with a DVE disc. The shop sets are often set up to catch your eye, but little else.

:pirate:CJ:pirate:

I've had a 1080P W2000 series 40" Sony since December 2007 and had no problems with it. Ive previously owned a Toshiba and seen numerours friends Samsungs and must that Sony is head and shoulders above the rest.

This is a excellent price as I paid £713 nearly 2 years ago.

I don't see how they've been going down hill. They continue to make high quality products, with high quality parts. Bravias still are some of the best TVs around.

Personally though i like Samsung, cos they are cheap and pretty good quality, but personally I'm waiting to get an LED TV, LCDs are better than Plasma, but the OLED stuff Sony made looks amazing (even though it's extremely expensive). But I'm sure the standard LED TVs will be a lot cheaper eventually.

Sony openly INCREASED prices this year because of the credit crunch. I would agree with comment that its over priced. Sony believe this too. Because they increased the price of their sets...

Even if I forgive the fact that your both exaggerating, I still have the question...

"Badge"? What "badge"?

This is a nicely designed TV, your paying extra for looks, not badge.

I spend extra money on furniture that looks nice... So why shouldn't I want to spend extra money on the presentation of something that I spend far more time looking at than I do my chest of draws?

If appearance was not important, I would never paint the walls, change the carpets, buy new clothes ...Or even be interested in ANY £200+ TV with a nice looking HD picture in the first place!

some of the comments here are pretty ridiculous. i know a lot of people here are very price concious but this isnt a designer handbag its a tv. and very good one at that.

due to lcd technology ts never been easier to differentiate between a poor tv and a good one. black levels, motion blur, judder, all these things were negliable with crt tvs but with lcd they stick out like a sore thumb. just check out the reviews by proffs i dont think ive ever seen a sony lcd score lest then 4/5.

its also funny watching people moan about a tv not having 1080p and then moaning about the dvd player especially when people here were probably standing less then 2 feet away.

yes prices a year ago got very cheap but due to economic situation they have gone up. so this is very good value for money. voted hot.

mmm think you would struggle to buy a 40" tv for £400.

This is a good price for this set but bear in mind it is a couple of years old and does have a low contrast ratio.

I paid £840 for the 40w5500 well worth it imo.

Have a look at the z4500 in 1080p Mode or the w4500 in Game Mode.

Bravia Engine, MotionFlow, fast resposnse game mode all that stuff really works.

I own a 40v3000 and have found the picture far superior (in SD) to that of my previous CRT.

Out of the box it was set to 'vivid' and had an odd hyper real look to it but that was easily corrected. Also I bought a Thor scart to maximise the SD signal coming from Sky. I would think the problem some people would have is getting a too large TV for the room, as a 50" LCD would be a bit much in a box room and force you nose up to the screen showing up every flaw in the picture but would be fine in a living room.

I'm sure a chart exists somewhere that gives you the recommended sitting distances for optimum picture.
