    I've had this tv for a couple of months now. It really is excellent, I can't think of any negatives. The colours and contrast are good (really good blacks). It makes a fairly good job of SD pictures, but HD (from bluray or upscaled dvd on PS3) it is truely stunning, everyone should get a copy Planet Earth in bluray to show it off!
    I had been looking at lcd tv's for a while, standing comparing them all in shops for ages. When I first heard about this one coming out I wasn't sure how good it would be as everything sounded great except it didn't have 100Hz. I had previously seen an X3500 (which has 100Hz "Motion flow") next to a V3000 and the V3000 looked really jerky by comparison (when watching some football and scrolling through credits), so I was thinking I would have to fork out the extra for a tv with 100Hz. Well with the W4000 they must have done something clever because it looks at least as good as the X3500 when there is motion.
    Being able to stick in a memory stick to show off pictures is a handy little feature too (though I wouldn't leave it on all the time as a picture frame!).
    I think it even looks nice (never did like the big blocky frame of the X series), I would recommend this tv to anyone.

    This is quality!

    SKY HD pictures are simply stunning, even non HD programmes look good (if you sit 2 foot in front of the TV then it will look a bit naff but then you shouldn't sit that close to a 40inch TV!) PS3 games look and run fabulous (the same could not be said of the Philips LCD this TV has replaced). Same goes for Blu-Ray. A friend who has a Panasonic Plasma could not believe how good the TV was, you can only tell it's an LCD when you are up close, there really is very little difference between the two now.

    A previous reviewer points out the default colour settings are naff, and he's right, but spend 30mins adjusting the different menus and it will be 30mins well spent!

    Sound is fairly decent, but i'm considering getting a cinema setup now I've got a TV this good!

    You can read the other reviews for the technical low-down, but in simple terms this is a beautifully designed television which is quick and easy to set up and has a wonderful, sharp display. It was equally easy to set up the DAV-IS10 sound system, with its remarkably small speakers, to accompany it. And of course, you can show your holiday snaps on it at a size that even your 98-year old Gran can see!

    Great value for money.

    I dithered for a long time trying to choose a 40" TV. Couldn't decide between Panasonic Plasma or Sony LCD. In the end my dithering paid off as the price has dropped by over £400.

    I bought the Sony in the end and I'm extremely pleased with it. I'm mainly using it for Sky (SD) but even on Freeview through the built in tuner it has a great picture (so long as you don't sit right in front of the screen) much better than any Freeview picture I have seen...very little Pixilation even on fast moving stuff like football.

    Haven't tried any HD sources yet but upscaled DVDs look very rich.

    I'm slightly disappointed by the sound....doesn't have the punch of my Toshiba LCD so at some stage I may consider surround sound or a 'sound bar' but it is more than adequate for general TV progs.

    Great TV.

    Ive seen many lcds from many manufacturers and, i own a Sony s3000 myself, i waited for some time to get that perfect TV, i skipped the w3000 as it had few issues, now that i have this TV I'm blown away with its performance, the blacks can easily rival most off the plasma in the market, there is no backlight bleed, no clouding issues like many other sets on the market. The SD picture quality is good nice vibrant colours, good detail. blue ray will blow you away picture is so detailed and sharp, whites are just as good as the blacks, call off duty 4 on the ps3 is brilliant no motion blur to report. overall this set is probably the best LCD on the market and it is under £1000, i think that bravia engine 2 is a big improvement over the old engine. The only TV i would consider 2nd place would be the Panasonic LZ85 which is was considering to buy.

    really is a top quality product. independent review sites rate it top of the non-100Hz models, and for me, they're spot on. Delivery from Amazon as usual faultless. TV v easy to attach to stand, and setup is automatic. Have connected to standard def Sky - gives a really nice picture. DVD is even better (from a Sony DVD/HDD player). More tweaks and adjustments are possible than even the geekiest person could ever use, but some of them are really good (picture in picture, backlight adjustment). Overall, superb

    This TV has replaced my beloved 12 yr old Sony Trinitron 29" CRT. I had viewed the Samsung, Panasonic & LG counterparts in both LCD & plasma formats, prior to choosing the Sony (I don't believe in blind brand loyalty).
    2 weeks on, and I'm pleased to say that our viewing experience has been transformed by the W4000 - it has far exceeded all expectations! The previous reviewers have waxed lyrical about its performance, and I completely agree with every point. LCD technology has come of age, with picture quality as good as CRT.
    I also appreciate the fact that the minimum viewing distance is about 6-8 feet, which suits our mid-sized living room perfectly.
    I did take note of the forum comment about the W4500 being better than the W4000. Went to the Sony Centre and watched 10 minutes of 'Iron Man' (BD) on the 2 sets, side by side - and I must admit, there was absolutely no discernible difference whatsoever in any department. So, saved over £250, got free 5 year Sony warranty, and went for the W4000 - in my humble opinion, was a no-brainer!
