Sony KDL40R473 40 Inch Full HD LED TV. 4.8 5 71 75
Brilliant tv! Fantastic tv , brilliant quality, stunning picture and great sound So light and slim and it looks fantastic Worth every penny! 08 July 2014
nice tv I was going to buy a LG TV as I always end up going for them as they am a good TV but none in stock the one I wanted . so went for this after reading the reviews and glad I did great picture and good sound easy to tune and very light to pick up compared to my old lg and was delivered with in a few hours by the shutl service great service and great TV and good price in the sale thank you Argos great place to shop 26 June 2014
Brilliant! This tv is brilliant and I was (and still am) very pleased with it. I saw this in the sale and WOW!! It's looks very elegant! The picture quality is amazing -The HD is Stunning and with the 100hz technology there's not a single dead pixel or any motion blur. -Very good for sport, watching the World Cup on this screen has been a god send! The sound is perfect! -For built in speakers, these have to be the best. -I still would recommend getting a sound bar just for the experience! 10/10 24 June 2014
A Great Choice I am very happy with this TV, it was very easy to set up and straight forward settings to sort out for my Sony PS3 game console. Going from a bulky and heavy CRT 26" , to this light slim 40" was fantastic. My advise, if you can afford to get this model tv, then don't hang about, get yourself to your nearest Argos :-). Lol. 24 June 2014
Brilliant TV, I would recommend in a heartbeat! The picture is great, although slightly disappointing if you're not watching something in HD. The sound is way better than I expected it to be - not tinny at all, and it looks great in my living room. 18 June 2014
Sony KDL40R473 40 inch Full HD LED TV Looked at alternatives before purchasing this one and I am confident that I made the right choice. I didn't want the SMART version and this one comes in a 40 inch screen, which is the perfect size for our room. The slim surround has allowed us to go from a 32 inch to a 40 inch without increasing the overall size of the unit. The picture quality is very good as is the sound with its downward speakers. Good value for money. 12 June 2014
Great for PS4! This tv was purchased to replace a 5 year old toshiba. Pros; Native 1080p = great for Gaming High Refresh rate = Great for Gaming Nice colours and very stylish design, most stable stand I have come across which is a must with kids around. Well done there Sony. Plays films from usb. Sound I cant comment on as running a bose pc surround 3.1 out of the 3.5mm headphone jack, this is great as I have noticed a lot of tvs dropping the headphone jack these day. tv=10/10 05 June 2014

exellent exactly what was needed , crisp hd picture and surprisingly good sound 15 May 2014
Sony let down Not the best Sony I've owned and I have had a good few. Cheap product you can lift it with one hand. I had to hunt for a new wall bracket as the fixing holes are located at the bottom of the set no mid or top fixings. 13 May 2014
Excellent product I bought this to replace my broken Sony tv and I wasn't disappointed. The sound and picture quality are excellent! Very good value for money and very easy to set up 29 April 2014

An excellent TV I am delighted with my recent purchase of a Sony 40" Full HD LED TV. The picture quality and sound are both excellent. Setting it up was relatively simple. Furthermore, the price was fantastic, compared to other Sony 40" TVs. 13 March 2014

This is Sony Quality. Great picture and easy to use. I didn't want a Smart TV as I have Apple TV already. Good Value. Only criticisms are that is has only 2 HDMI leads and I can't play out to my stereo and play through TV speakers at the same time. 07 March 2014

I want to use this for gaming and so therefore obviously i need a low input lag, i will only buy this if it has less than 10ms input lag, also i noticed that someone asked this earlier and the answer was that the input lag varies because of different factors, well the other TV's on here have an input lag statistic so therefore i don't see why this TV can't have that same statistic

I am confused. Does this Television have Saorview. This question was asked by another person who was given two answers - one answer said it does have Saorview but the other answer said it does NOT have Saorview. Can you please clarify this for me.
