Sony marvell Brought this tv for our mum & dad as there older Bravia 32 inch led tv was just too small for there front room. This 40inch tv is 100% better in every way. Awesome picture,sound & there is hardly a surround frame to the screen so it would look good hung on a wall. Great price & great Argos service. Hdmi ports & scart socket. 26 October 2013

Sony tv This is a really great tv and is well worth the money, it's great for gaming and movies. I would definitely recommend it. 23 October 2013
Great value product I am delighted with this Sony television set! The quality of picture and sound is very good and the design is neat. The only negative for me is the small buttons on the remote,but that may not be a problem for those without arthritis in their hands. I would definitely recommend this product 23 October 2013

Excellent Picture is amazing and I would definately recommend this TV 22 October 2013
Very Good Exceptional Picture and sound Quality 22 October 2013
Tv replaced This is a great tv I'm really enjoying watching hd movies on it. The only thing I can fault and the reason I gave 4 SARS instead of 5 is the fact I noticed after a week it had one stuck pixel. I contacted the store I got it from and they swapped it for another the next day. I just walked in the shop with it and was back in the car with a replacement within 10 mins.. Can't fault Argos on there customer service. 22 October 2013
Excellent TV Bought it and love every bit of it. From the pictures to the sound bytes, they are sharp and they are clear/concise. Very easy to set up too. Quality! 22 October 2013
simply superb I love this TV and It's very good TV. 22 October 2013
Great LED TV I got it from Argos at very good price and I'm really happy I bought it. It is perfect for my bedroom as the edges are small and the stand is low. It does not take too much space as my Samsung TV in the sitting room. Really nice video quality and quite powerful speakers for such a small casing. Love the ability to play nearly everything on TV from my USB stick. Freview HD works great as well, I'm getting quite a few HD channels for free. Would recommend this TV to everyone. 22 October 2013
Great television. Very pleased. Fits nicely on the wall bracket and is very lightweight. 08 October 2013
Great tv Love this tv, slim, light weight, great picture, great sound quality. 04 October 2013
Great Picture Looks good and stunning HD picture, the sound is ok for a slim-line TV better than I thought it would be. Easy to set up and a easy to understand remote control. Could do with more HDMI connections. ( the first TV had a faulty HDMI port but Argos replaced it with no fuss).For the price a very good TV!! 03 October 2013
Fantastic Set This TV set is great. The quality is what you would expect from a Sony TV and for the price is excellent value - it also looks really stylish (important when it sits in the corner of the lounge). 02 October 2013
Great product! Bought this TV at excellent value in sale (almost £200 off!). The picture quality is great, sound surprisingly clear but not tinny. Most of all it looks stunning. The only downside is that it only has 2 HDMI ports (rear and side) - think how many devices you need to connect. Would recommend to anyone though but wouldn't pay non sale price for it. 01 October 2013
great price great t.v. Have always had Sony t.v.s so read up about this model and I'm very pleased I did it's got a brilliant picture quality easy to connect , extremely lightweight and great value for money. 01 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.
