Awesome All Round TV!,
This review is from: Sony KDL40CX523BU 40-inch Widescreen Full HD 1080p LCD Internet Ready TV with Freeview HD (Electronics)
Bought three LCD tv's in recent years(a mix of big brands and cheap ones) but this TV knocks socks off all of them. The picture quality is superb as is the interface for settings, internet TV etc. I didn't know whether the internet TV would be of any use, but with access to iPlayer this is a real plus point - the interface to access programs is simple and effective and can't be distinguished from normal TV when your watching something (you even have the ability to pause mid program, which is helpful). You can access a number of different online video sources, including you tube which is handy.
We use it mainly with Sky TV but have connected it to an aerial and tuning it was really easy - the quality of the tuner shows itself when it picks up a lot more channels than other TV's I have using the same aerial. The HD channels were picked up no problem and work really well. Another great feature is the ability to connect the TV to an external hard drive means you can record programs via the on screen guide.
Can't recommend this TV enough - great all rounder with Sony quality showing through. Fantastic value.
