Energy Rating A
Sony Bravia 40" FULL HD LCD TV | KDL40RD453BU is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 115.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great picture I've only used this TV for a few days but the picture is excellent. The sound, like most flat screen TVs is OK but not great so I bought a sound bar to go with it. There are 2 problems I've yet to sort out. 1. If not used for a while it turns off and can only be re activated by turning off the power supply and re connecting. Something to do with the Eco settings I assume. 2.Ive been unable to get it to accept a software upgrade so far Apart from these points I'm very happy with it but I think the manual could be more detailed which might help with the minor problems I've encountered.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Home cinema Just like a cinema at home,we've a small living room so were a bit concerned that upgrading to a 40" from our old 32" might be a step too far.How wrong we were.With the thin surround , HD and invisible built in speakers.A really good picture and dosnot attract dust like the old one.Really light weight too.We are well pleased and looking forward to a brighter Christmas.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good TV, unclear settings This is actually a very good TV, but we found the whole process of selection and set-up quite confusing; I'm pretty technical but have taken little interest in developments in TV. So, it's not a smart TV (though that's not stated anywhere), but its settings complain constantly that there's no Internet connection, even when Freeview HD works. The technology's great, but Sony could do so much more in setting clear expectations in a field that's moving fast, but where customers aren't necessarily up to date on the latest changes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Tv This is the second Sony Bravia television I have bought. The first one is a 32 inch and I have had it for 7years and it is still going strong. Moved it to another room and bought this one. I love it even more I like all the features, the picture is sharp and I hope it will last as long as the other one.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Frustrating Bought this a few weeks ago and it's been a poor experience to date - it has a mind of its own and chooses not to turn on via the remote or power button. Nice picture when it turns on, but what a disappointment

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Non Smart TV Bought this for my 89 yr old mum so not being smart is a bonus. Free view HD is superb and once I'd shuffled all the HD channels to suit her "Is it on No 3?" So ITV HD is now No 3 etc etc. Well pleased.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Poor instructions plus a fault The instructions for setting the TV up were very hard to follow. The menu system is poor. The set often fails to turn back on (one has to cycle the power) so I expect to return it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mr I brought about one month ago and happy to use voice and picture quality is good but I could not connect with Internet. Please let me know how to connect with Internet.
