I was rather reluctant to replace a 32 inch Toshiba that had served me well for about 5 years. Why get rid of something still working well? I'm not fussed about paying for high definition. I just got fed up with the sheer size of my Toshiba compared with these new HD sets.
This TV is truly excellent. I have it set up with Sky+ and an Apple TV box and an HDMI link to a Blu Ray DVD player. Pictures from all sources are far better than I expected. The quality is so good that I don't think I will be rushing to pay more for an HD Sky box yet awhile. It is also so much lighter than a 4 year old plasma I have in another room and therefore more easy to manoeuvre. So for picture quality, sound and general appearance, I'm delighted with it. I was a bit reluctant to go back to black but it looks good on a black glass stand. Even my old black Rogers floorstanders look good with it. I play the TV with all sources through an integrated hi fi amp. Can't be doing with too many speakers in the lounge. Buy with confidence.

I've just bought the KDL40V4000 as part of a (slow) move to HD across my ageing home cinema system, and I'm absolutely delighted with it. I'm glad I finally decided to buy just after the V4000 replaced the Sony V3000 and V3500 models I've been looking at all year. I tend to be a Sony fan for TVs, having had a long history of reliable models over the years, although I've also bought Panasonic, JVC Toshiba and even Samsung in the past. I looked at all of the available models, and although it was close the Sony picture kept looking the best in the various showrooms. Then a favourable, 5 star What Hifi review pushed me over the edge. For me, this 40 inch LCD TV replaces a JVC 32inch widescreen TV, which looks and feels like a monster alongside the latest LCD technology (not looking forward to carrying that up to the bedroom where it's going next!). The new slim TV, when fitted on an Alphason ST600 90 stand takes up pretty much the same footprint as the JVC, sitting between the two stacks of my hifi/av system. The simple and elegant piano black styling is a definite improvement over the earlier models, and it looks very stylish (except for that big mess of cables to my particular hifi configuration that are now in view - have to think of a solution for that). I couldn't stretch my budget to the W or higher models which have some extra bells, whistles and processing, but this TV has all of the things I wanted - 1920x1080 resolution / 1080p, 24p for true cinema, enough HDMI inputs (3), PC connectivity (just in case), and Freeview.

Eventually I'll upgrade to BluRay and Sky HD, but for the moment my main sources are a Sky Plus box, a veteran Sony DVP-S725D DVD player, a Sony VCR/DVD recorder, and a Canon HD camcorder.

I've just bought this TV in a package with a Blu-ray player (Sony 350) and I have to say I am very pleased.

I got a couple of free disks. First of all I gave XxX a whirl. Not the greatest film in the world but looked great, nice and crisp. Same with Pans Labarynth.

As for the TV itself...Screen gives nice big picture. Blacks of pretty good, not perfect but for the money you are doing well. Digital TV gives nice picture, Im going to get Freesat at some point as my freeview reception is hit and miss.

Downside is watching older programmes. I watched Dads Army and as another reviewer mentioned you get to see the warts and all of the poorer quality of the old recording. Going to watch a digitally remastered old Dr Who tonight to see how that fares. Watched Revenge of the Sith last night on normal DVD and the picture was fantastic so glad I wont have to rebuy all my DVDs again.

So in concluding, well worth considering as you seem to get a nice bit of telly for the money. My only other advice is haggle! I went to Sony Centre and quoted Amazon prices and I got the Blu-ray player and 5 year gaurantee.

I have just bought the KDL40V4000 just over a week ago and am really please with it. I wonted a TV to replace my 3 year old 32" LCD as have had a PS3 for a few months I wanted - 1920x1080 resolution / 1080p, 24p as have a few Blu-ray films now. Am really happy with the picture and don't bother spending loads on HDMI leads the cheap ones give just as good a picture as the silly price leads. Blu-ray looks fantastic on it in 1080p and the BBC HD on Sky looks great. Blacks don't seem to have a problem as don't have that slight grey like on a lot of seats and haven't notes any ghosting on fast moving scenes . Have my PC on HDMI input 2 and unlike some other makes of TV you can run in 1080p without the over sizing problem. Only problem I found is the piano black surround seems to attract the dust but this seems to be a problem on other makes to as friends who have Samsung seem to suffer the same there 40" 1080p cost more though but not as good a picture as this.

I have been researching LCD TVs for a long time and finally settled on this model which does everything I want, and being 1080P should be relatively future proof! Very easy to set up and intuitive in use. I also bought a Sony DAV DZ260 cinema system which is FAB and amazing value from Amazon. What a great TV it is!!!!great contrast ratio - colours and brightness are fantastic - good synch with the cinema system too....
One down-side though...old movies can look really poor as the TV exposes every blemish - especially old American stuff in old VT quality - both pixellated and fuzzy - not a fault of the set. My cinema system has 1080 upscaling and DVDs look brilliant so will be ok without a blu ray just yet! I would recommend getting HDTV though as I think it will be difficult to live with "less than" picture quality on a big screen. If you want a lovely high quality TV with all the Sony build quality at a good price - this doesn't get much better!
