Comments about Sony Sony 40" Bravia 1080P HD LCD TV (KDL-40V4100):
First of all I'm used to a BIG TV..my old one weighed almost "a ton" it was a bulky flat screen. I was impressed with how light the tv was, and wondered how good the picture would be. After a whopping 15 minutes of set up time ( I thought I'd be there for days!) I was up and running IN STEREO with a home theatre system! The HD picture was FANTASTIC! I'm a BIG sports and movie fan--nothing compares to this set!! Movies are better especially with the FREE Blu-ray player!! I have yet to find ANYTHING I can complain about..seriously!!
