|LED Display Technology: LED (light-emitting diode) TVs are actually a type of LCD TV. LCD HDTVs use standard compact fluorescent tubes to illuminate the picture. LED HDTVs, on the other hand, replace those fluorescent tubes with backlighting technology. LED TVs might therefore say "LCD display" on the packaging--this is perfectly normal.

However, there does seem to be an issue with the most important thing - the picture. From having the TV for a while, I have really started to notice how "jerky" the picture is when showing fast moving panning scenes on both standard and high Def transmissions and blu rays.
I have followed advice on setting the picture up and made adjustments to suit but the most important DSP addition for smoothing out the motion, the LED motion Control, is virtually unusable as it greatly reduces the brightness of the screen, making images much too dark to view satisfactorily.
Don't get me wrong - general picture quality is very sharp with HD content and the depth of field is good, with great colour when tweaked properly. It's just that the jerkiness is quite annoying.
If anyone can think of anything in the setup that I'm doing wrong, please add your solutions that smooth out the panning as I really don't want to have to send this one back.
So, in summary a good TV with nice sharp pictures but with just a little fly in the ointment when it comes to smooth motion.
Amazing image quality, better than all it's rivals at this price range
Thin Metal bezel, beautiful, feels well made
Works flawlessy with my Synology NAS, with Media Server or Plex
Netflix, Amazon Prime Video and BBC iPlayer all very well integrated
Software is smooth and quicker than comparable Samsung
Free Wall Mount (Stand doubles as a wall mount)
Free Soundbar + Subwoofer in my deal
Record TV shows straight to USB
Pause Live TV
When recording live TV or pausing live TV you cannot change channel
The supplied wall bracket cannot be tilted
Not VESA standard wall mount, adapter requires
very pleased with the TV, the image quality really is fantastic.
Picture on 42" is excellent and built in sound is good for a fact seen.
Originally £749, It was reduced to £699. However am glad I hesitated initially as Sony currently has a limited promotional offer on this model now to include a good free sound bar worth £100, all for an amazing £599!!
This seemed a bargain deal so took the plunge and I must say how pleased I am with this TV. Just look at the specifications.
It has truly superb picture quality with adjustable modes to suit your viewing preferences, great sound quality sor a slim TV which is improved with the free sound bar and sub woofer. You won't be disappointed...buy it!!.
Sony have certainly upped their game with this model which is comparable with much higher priced opposition. If you can find this deal buy it, you will not be disappointed. Highly recommended
I had read lots of comments over on AV Forums regarding the differences between the 42" model and the 50" model even though both share the same model number.
400hhz/800hhz.... motionflow vs led motionflow... ?
I can tell you now that this TV has delivered on many counts. No problems with the above regarding stutter, picture absolutely lovely to my eyes.
Plays all video formats from an external HDD plus the video output from my XBox One, PS4 look divine :-)
Stand is really solid, build quality excellent.
Got this for £706 plus postage from Amazon but prices seem to fluctuate daily?
Bottom line, if you haven't got room for the 50" model, then get this - you won't be disappointed.
