Planet and pocket friendly

Fancy saving a bit of money every month? TVs now come with an Energy Rating sticker, which shows you how much energy they use, which is basically a reference for how much they are going to cost you on energy bills. An A or B energy-rated LED television uses up a lot less electricity than your average plasma. All of our TVs for 2012 are either A or B rated, which means you'll be saving money as you're entertained.

Find your angle

The EX6 is designed to fit into your home and be accommodating to the way you watch TV. That’s why the easel stand lets it tilt back 6 degrees, perfect if you position it on low, modern furniture.

Size Name:40-inch|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
This telly must be good - my other half loves it! Usually new 'gadgets' need some kind of justification and there are always other more important things that need doing before installing and setting up (or playing / fiddling with) new gadgets is acceptable.

Not with this TV though!

Immediately out of the box it looks great. A slightly patterned black bezel - the better to avoid finger prints - with a dark metal edge that's just out of sight around the edge. It looks very classy and understated and most of that frontage is screen as well.

Assembly was simple, just unpack the bits, drop the telly vertically into the stand with the guide bolts aligning everything automatically then attach the three screws and job done. Out of the box the screen has a 6 degree backwards tilt, but there are two other screws on the back of the stand that allow this tilt to be adjusted or removed altogether (with storage holes for the screws as well if they are completely removed). The screen actually looks as though it tilts very slightly forwards when the tilt adjust screws are fully removed so you may want to play with this a little.

The screen also swivels by about 15 degrees on the stand which is handy, and it still feels solid despite very little pressure being needed to turn the screen.

INITIAL SET UP

When first powering up the TV goes through a setup sequence asking you to answer a bunch of easy questions. An extra mark to Sony here for recognising that in he UK most people will no longer want to scan for analogue channels as they've been switched off.

You are also given the opportunity during this setup sequence to connect to your network via a wired connection or the built in WiFi.

5.0 out of 5 stars Totally brilliant and a very fast start-up! 21 May 2012
By Andy_atGC TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Size Name:40-inch|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
As a 40-inch TV, this is not considered unduly large by modern standards and sits comfortably between 37-inch and 42-inch models. It is however quite imposing although it sits on a rather short, heavy-duty all-metal stand that looks as if would support something larger or heavier than is this. It is not as thin as a LED screen but it is LED edge-illuminated which provides some of the same characteristics. The edge bezel is about 1-inch in width at the top and sides and slightly more at the bottom. On its stand, the bottom of the TV is only about 2-inches above the table-top. If you wish, it can be wall-mounted and you will need to obtain the correct fittings. It claims to be about 11.6 kilos in weight and it can be lifted by one person.

The power cable is fixed and provided with a UK plug. If you intend to use the TV abroad, you will need to remove the plug and replace it. An IEC connector and replaceable leads may have been a better choice, but it will not concern the vast majority of buyers.

Some minor assembly is required, mostly of the stand, a process that took about 2 minutes. The stand allows a few degrees of swivel from side to side and the rotation is very free, needing finger pressure only. It is supposed to allow a small amount of tilt but I could not get it to do that and its current position is leaning slightly backwards. Once positioned and the essential cables connected, you will be prompted to allow an initial self-configuration process before setting some personal preferences and commencing to tune for Freeview and Freeview HD. You will be asked whether to tune analogue and digital or digital alone which, as the analogue signals have now been switched off in the UK, would be faster if Digital was the choice made.

I believe that the person marking this TV 1 star must have a hidden agenda against Sony, there's no way on earth that this model deserves such a low rating.

We've had this TV for about 2 months, changing from a 14-year old Toshiba CRT that was still going strong.
To us the picture and clarity are fantastic, even on the default settings. Initially I did spend some time fiddling with the many adjustments but always returned to the defaults.
The only change away from the defaults was to select 'Dynamic' in the sound settings. A number of other reviewers have made comment on the quality of the sound output, well I agree that it's not fantastic but it is more than adequate. Certainly good enough for us to get rid of the separate surround sound system that we had with the old telly; my hearing is poor (I wear hearing aids) but I can hear speech on this new Sony far clearer than on the old set up (and at normal volume levels, so I suppose the neighbours will be pleased).
I'm not entirely sure how useful the internet facility is yet; we've used i-Player occasionally but nothing else so far - I have another source for movies so don't need Lovefilm and Netflix at the moment.

On the downside I didn't buy the Sony from Amazon, I waited for weeks for them to drop the price but nothing happened so bought from a local dealer at full price. Got a 5-year guarantee but I don't expect we'll need that knowing Sony's build quality.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice TV, a bit let down by its sound 22 May 2012
By D. Harris TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Size Name:40-inch|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Overall, I was impressed by this TV, but for one thing. It has an excellent picture, probably the best I've seen, crisp and clear, with no lurid greens, and a range of extra services (more detail below). Not least was the ease of unpacking, handling and setup. However, I was rather disappointed (hence 4 stars rather than 5) by the sound, which is a little flat and tinny - although I'm not using external speakers, so this may be a bit unfair.

Starting at the beginning, I was impressed by how easy the TV was to get out the box - easy for one person to lift out of the box, unlike the TV (still LCD) this replaced, which took two of us just to lift off the stand.

Assembling the TV and the base requires five screws (you'll need a medium sized crosshead screwdriver)- two join the parts of the base together, while the other three fasten the TV to the base. There are more than three slots on the back of the TV, and which slots you use determines the angle of screen tilt - ours started tilted back a few degrees, then we went back and changed them to get it vertical once we realised this. You may just want to play around a bit and get this as you want it first time - the instructions are slightly unhelpful. This can all easily be done by one person.

Once assembled and put in place, this was a dream to set up. After it's powered on, you're taken through the normal choice of languages, asked where and how the TV is being used, and how (if at all) you want it to access the Internet (Wi-Fi, Ethernet or cable). We're using it on Wi-Fi, and it found our router (BT Home hub) and connected very easily, although typing in the router password with the remote control was fiddly.
