Super Sony Slick design with perfect picture & sound quality. So user friendly and the installation was a cinch. Good price too.. 04 March 2014
brilliant tv This T.V. does exactly what it says on the box. Very easy to connect to other equipment. It is stylish and because of the screen surround the picture is superb. 04 March 2014
Perfect for PS4 All round great T.V and definitely worth the money! 26 February 2014
Great Tv Perfect telly for what i needed. Didn't need a 'smart' tv due to owning a Playstation 3. Just the style and picture quality does it for me. 19 February 2014
Top Quality Sony Product after much research we decided that this Sony TV had everything we needed and we weren't disappointed. Good value too as we purchased when discounted. Great delivery, made at a time to suit us. 28 January 2014
Easy to use Really easy TV to set up. Good size. Great quality all round from a Sony TV. Very pleased. 28 January 2014
sony 40 inch full hd led clear picture and quality, and very good sound 16 January 2014
Good set at the price Simple set up. easy to use. Picture and sound very good. Only real problem is the lack of a 3rd HDMI socket. 15 January 2014
Very Clear Picture and Easy Set Up This TV is excellent. The picture quality is superb and it was really easy and quick to set up. Full marks. 15 January 2014
Good enough Not the initial TV set I wanted but settled for a Sony (sales stock running low!) I managed to get this at a good price. Picture is good, quite basic settings but overall works well with Sky box. Just a shame not every channel is in HD for free. HD quality is good, not the best I've seen, but when you start getting bigger TV's, your pixels are generally bigger - make sure you buy a TV to adapt to your room size. The USB socket is a great feature - played Photos and video (AVI file) fine. 14 January 2014
very good telly this was bought to replace a VERY old Sony television. THis item has good volume, good colour and has a nice, sharp picture. 14 January 2014
Excellent tv Picture & sound quality is brilliant. I watch sky HD channels a lot and this tv shows HD quality 14 January 2014
always worth the extra money I am a great Sony person. I have had a life repairing Televisions. I always buy Sony as I never have to repair them. This television is easy to set up and has a great picture. I like the sound quality. Its loud enough for me on number 14. it can go up to 100. I watch films I have downloaded off the internet and it plays them perfectly. I do use MP4 format. Not tried any other. Pictures too are perfect. You can see them the moment you put the usb stick into the Sony TV 09 January 2014
Stunning What a fantastic TV. Upgraded from a smaller LCD Samsung and the difference in quality is amazing. Easy to setup, superb picture quality, really well made and looks stunning in our lounge. what more could you want!?? 09 January 2014
top tv do buy ,so simple to set up. 01 November 2013
Bought this to replace tv that we had to return due to poor sound and picture. This is superb in comparsion and looks nicer too. Good customer service at Stirling branch too 29 October 2013
Super TV This TV was easy to set up, is simple to use and has a really good picture and sound. Looks great as well, not too overpowering, so a brilliant buy in the sale, we're delighted with it. 29 October 2013
Sony 40" Full HD TV Everything about the TV is fine, but the remote control does not do it justice - a little bit cheap and cheerful in aappearance. 29 October 2013
Bought as a gift. Very happy with this product. Have absolutely no complaints. The set up was very simple and it looks good. Not as intrusive as some bigger screen TVs can be. It replaced one of a similar size which felt as if it was taking up half the room. 29 October 2013
Bought this tv to replace a large heavy old grey Sony tv that I had had 11 years. I read loads of reviews and decided that most of them were rubbish especially about this tv, some said picture quality was bad, it's not, some said sound was tinny and you needed a sound bar, well it's not and you don't. So to be honest I ignored all the reviews and bought a Sony purely because my last tv was a Sony and had served me trouble free for 11 years. 29 October 2013

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.
