BRAVIA S3000 Series LCD TV


HD Ready

HD Ready

To appreciate just how good a high definition picture is, it helps to know how TV’s, DVD’s and VHS worked in the past. Until recently, there was only one type of broadcast format – Standard definition - SD. With SD, the level of detail in the picture resolution is limited. SD has a resolution of 720 X 576, which means 576 horizontal lines of 720 pixels each. Pixels are the dots which make up a digital picture. The new HD formats boost resolution far beyond SD, giving your TV a level of clarity and detail that is absolutely breathtaking.


Integrated Digital Tuner / Freeview

Integrated Digital Tuner / Freeview

Having an integrated Digital Freeview Tuner means that your TV has a built in receiver that will give you access to many more channels without the need to have any additional hardware, such as a Freeview box. In 2007, the government will begin switching UK broadcasting to digital, so if your TV doesn’t have an integrated digital tuner feature you wont be able to view any channel without buying the additional hardware.


HDMI Sockets

HDMI Sockets

The S3000 LCD TV has 3 X HDMI sockets – 2 at the rear of the set and one at the side.

Your HDMI socket provides a connection point on your TV that is able to deliver a high definition picture. Quite simply, the more HDMI sockets that you have on your BRAVIA LCD TV, the more components you are able to link up to for HD picture quality, for instance, a Blu-ray player, your camcorder and your gaming console. Having the socket located in the front of the TV means that you no longer have to get into awkward positions or move the unit in order to gain access to the connection point, great if you’re viewing your photos on your TV via your digital camera.


BRAVIA Theatre Sync

BRAVIA Theatre Sync

A one touch control over your whole Home theatre set up. Simply press the Theatre button on the TV’s remote control, the TV’s sound turns off & the picture settings configure automatically to an optimal movie watching mode. BRAVIA Theatre Sync cuts out the complexity so that you can concentrate on enjoying your movie.


Live Colour Creation

Live Colour Creation

Live Colour Creation is a backlight system which produces a wider colour gamut, seen particularly with the red and green areas of the spectrum. So your TV picture will have more lifelike and natural colours with no smudging or dulling of the image.


BRAVIA Engine

BRAVIA Engine

This picture enhancement technology ensures that the image produced on screen represents perfection.

  • It reduces colour distortion by decreasing 'cross colour', 'dot crawl' and 'moire' the sort of distortion that you get on patterns such as a checked shirt. It cleans up the haze that you often see around lettering such as titles or text so that they appear perfectly sharp on screen.

  • It enhances specific areas of low contrast within the image giving an overall crisp picture.

  • It smoothes the motion, preventing jagged edges and bleeding colours on fast moving objects, ideal for sports & action sequences.

  • It matches colours, which ensures the final image is reproduced exactly as the original source intended meaning that you see incredibly natural colours.


Dynamic Contrast

Dynamic Contrast

Contrast ratio is improved and all shades between the brightest white and the darkest blacks are maintained, so the picture has more depth and detail. This is achieved as the backlight brightness adjusts according to the brightness of the scene. Sony’s unique dynamic contrast system features ACE (advanced contrast enhancer) which ensures all of the subtle shades of grey are maintained.


VESA Hole Spacing

VESA Hole Spacing

VESA-Standard or Video Electronics Standards Association is a perfect template for hole spacing (screw holes) in flat screens. So providing your wall bracket is also VESA standard, hanging your TV on the wall, for example, is a simple process without the frustration of drilling the holes incorrectly and in the wrong place.


Available In Various Colours

The 20" version in this series, is available in Metallic Silver / Black / Light Blue / Lilac / Mocha / Silky White and Pink giving you the ability to match the TV to your lifestyle & environment

This tv is simply in a class of it's own. Maybe a touch too big for some people's rooms, but as the ladies would say...size matters! This is one heck of a tv, not to mention the total envy you will see on the face's of your mate's when they pop round!he he. This bravia is so easy to set up, REALLY quick to tune and before you know it your enjoying all it can offer. The picture quality before even fiddling with any of the menu options is fab, the colours seem fresh and full of life. After clicking it to 'cinema' in the picture menu I can safely say I haven't seen Die Hard so clear before, must add that was just off Digital tv! The sound to my well trained ear seem's perfectly balanced with no need to have the volume too loud to appreciate the great tone's these speakers can produce. I'll spare you the techno jargon that every bloke can rhime off as it bore's me too! All in all I couldn't be happier as I would have spent at least another £300 if I hadn't shopped around which I can now spend on my girlfriend, she wrote that! Honest.

This is a very attractive 40" LCD TV made by the peerless Sony.

The picture is very clear and bright with realistic colours and strong blacks. The picture brightness itself is changeable according to your preference and the TV's location.

There is surprisingly good sound with excellent bass from the built in speakers - I use it without a separate sound system and it's good enough for either action movies or talky arthouse films.

Freeview built in works extremely well - use automatic setup and it does everything for you. Same with any device, DVD player or blu-ray, whether it's Sony or not, is always recognised and works seamlessly with the TV. Loads of connectivity too with 3 HDMI ports including one on the side.

Can't recommend it enough. I can't work out why there aren't more reviews of this TV - if you look at the Sony KDL-32S3000, which is the 32" version of this TV, there are 113 reviews with an average score of 5 stars.

We bought this tv at the turn of the new year from a sony centre (sorry amazon!) to replace a phillips tv that had gone wrong not even 4 weeks after we bought it - phillips were fantatsic about it and even gave us a number to take to the dealer so they would give us the money back for it, Not wanting to risk it happening again we opted for a sony as our last tv we were replacing was a sony trinitron 10 years old and still going strong; it was just starting to show its age being a big and bulky (not to mention VERY heavy) corner piece. The sony shows far sharper and clearer pictures than any other (or at least the same spec phillips we had before) Hi-Def tv, the bravia brand is worth the claims it makes 10/10, teamed up with blu-ray it blows you away. sony is a brand you can trust to deliver time and time again, theyve worked hard to get to the top, they definately deserve to stay there
