Sony KDL40W5500U, Masterpiece by once again, they are setting new standards once again for LCD TVs


Loving it so significantly, for an lcd telly. I have held off for ages as the impression quality is just not as great as crt and that is however the scenario. Even so fantastic this is for an lcd just glance at a male newsreader. Good you can see the 5 oclock shadow, but only until they go. Then like all other lcds it smeers away right up until they are even now all over again. This is induced by a combination of response time and impression processing. At the time you have viewed it you will commence to see the identical outcome on many other scenes. Aside from that the photo is as superior as you look to get with a pretty even darkish level across the monitor.

Never be set off by a handful of negative feedback. As regular 1st class service from amazon and no cost delivery much too. Some of the relatively detrimental reviews about backlight challenges and audio top quality triggered me to have some uncertainties. The other assessments on the other hand reassured me. How glad i was that i went with the greater part check out. The tv is easy to established up, the picture top quality, even on sd, is wonderful and the sound is far better than our old sony crt. . Purchase this established you will not be unhappy. A significant thank you to all other reviewers. Your remarks ended up extremely, extremely, helpful.

Identical to most persons, i was drawn to the 40w5500 because of the reputation(and absence of inventory) of the 40w4500. A member of my family took shipping and delivery of a 4500 right before xmas and the high quality i noticed there cemented my need to own a sony w series lcd television. To begin with the cost offered for this set by amazon is 2nd to none. As a trusted and regarded world-wide-web retailer it stuffed me with self-assurance to order, and i havn’t been unhappy. For starters, the set-up was as uncomplicated as could perhaps be. Plug every little thing in and enable the car set-up get manage. The pictures from regular definition, from both of those the constructed in digital tuner and sky, delivers an great viewing expertise. No pixillation, sharp traces and great detailing in dim scenes. High definition blu-ray shots are quite basically in another planet.

Samsung le40b650 or sony kdl40w5500. After some sizeable time examining my brother bought the samsung and i bought the sony. 1st off the my sony was developed in august 09 and has no back again gentle concerns i am knowledgeable of at all back again light levels. Comparitively my brother purchased the samsung for its technically remarkable computer system and media linked abilities. While i purchased the sony for its ‘very slightly’ hotter emotion, dare i say a lot more reasonable picture which i expert in several retailers prior to invest in. In fact following obtain i nevertheless come to feel the same way. The samsung has as with most lcds a slight darkish experience to it although the graphic is crystal distinct and most individuals will say ‘settings, settings’ nonetheless and this may well be so but when i see my brothers tv it reminds me of a somewhat cloudy working day all the time no subject what setting. To sum up if you like compters and a cool looking tv with a technically pretty much excellent photo then its the samsung but if you would like to feel like to check out hd films like you are hunting at serious life as a result of a window then its the sony. Just to say neither of us are unsatisfied with our buy and these views are just my individual view.

Received the tv for almost a thirty day period now. Prior to that i was checking out all types of brand names and within sony itself, its many series. Decided that the w series is actually benefit for money. It’s just the ideal measurement (40′), wonderful distinction (one hundred,000:one). I mean black is seriously black okay, the motor, be3 is so much better vs be2 that i have viewed in retailers. Hook up with lap top applying hdmi cable to check out movies in hd formats. The only setback – swivel only twenty%. Obtaining explained that, i can still see it evidently whilst ingesting at the dining table considering the fact that there is no glare irrespective of the angled situation.

Sony Bravia KDL40W5500U 40-inch Widescreen Full HD 1080p LCD TV with Freeview and 100Hz Motionflow : I chose this tv after a combination of on-line investigations and a visit to tottenham court road to see the contenders in the flesh & do a little price-haggling. I was mainly considering this sony bravia vs. A similar samsung, but also looked at a sharp led tv. Eventual choice was based on my perception of value for money – given criteria of size, refresh rate and brand name / perceived reliability. On price, amazon really can’t be faulted – the best i could do in a shop was £100 more expensive, even before comparing delivery charges. The delivery was a day early vs. The date promised in the confirmation email, but that’s most likely because i ordered on christmas eve, and i think the suppliers may have worked one of the bank holiday days. I’m sure this isn’t normally an issue, but it could be inconvenient for people if published delivery dates are not reliable. As for the tv itself, i have now had it for 4 weeks and the headline is that i love it.

    I’ve had this tv for four years and it still works flawlessly giving exceptional picture quality. It is quite a bit bulkier than modern led tvs but as a result i think you get slightly better sound quality.

      Excellent tv and coupled with the free extended warranty made this a great deal. Picture is perfect and the sound as with most lcd tv could do with a boost from a sound bar or av upgrades.

    Great telly , good picture, although with hindsight i’d of either bought a cheaper one or waited as 3d is becoming the rage now and cant justify replacing it yet. No complaints with it though, its very good, i love it.

      Bought this just by the belief that sony would provide me the quality that it’s brand promises. I must say it lived up to my expectations (if not more) and i’m more than happy to have bought this tv. I can now happily play my xbox on it.

        Beautiful tv, pretty as a picture. I appreciate looking at objects of great beauty – glad i see this tv every day. Crisp picture, minimalist design, a treat for your eyes. Hook it up with surround speakers and you’ve got yourself a lounge cinema experience. Plug in your games console, blu-ray, etc, to really use these devices properly. A big price but worth the spend, mates and visitors are impressed – and so am i.

    I purchased this tv although reviews were mixed, i just wanted a simple tv as i do not sit the whole day and watch tv and this has exeeded my expectations. The screen is wide, quality of picture is excellent and even my brother in law (who is mega electronics geek and not very easily impressed) said it is superb, especially with motion flow.

    The swivel mechanism between screen and stand is stiff, and requires two hands and a firm grip to move the screen left or right.

      Great value. Pretty great tv. I don’t really have any complaints about this tv. Pretty much what you’d expect from sony. Possibly a tad over priced but in no way am i dissapointed. Very, very easy to set up, although setting it up with an xbox, cinema kit and sky hd box has meant i’ve needed to use the majority of its input/output sockets (thanfully there are loads) – btw you may have read about the lag when connecting an xbox. I found there was a slight sound delay from my tv to cinema kit. (easily sorted by connecting the xbox directly to my hi-fi)sd pictures are pretty sharp. You’ll need to tweak the settings, but when you find what suits you, you’ll be impressed for sure. Although i’m hooked up to a surround sound system i checked the tv speaker.

    I spent most of my adult life as a tv director. I lived years in most of the top edit suites with the best equipment then available. Quite simply the hd here provides the best picture i have ever seen. That includes both studio monitors and retail models. The sd is good but it suffers from the obvious comparison with the stunningly outstanding hd. As hd channels continue to proliferate, this set will be appreciated more and more. Is there clouding in the corners?.I notice it only when there is a break in the signal.

    Glad i bought through amazon. I purchased this tv for my mother, sadly, it had a fault after a couple of months. Just wanted to put on here that after having contacted amazon, they handled it fantastically. In less than a week new tv had arrived and the damaged one was picked up for return, free of charge. Double thumbs up for amazon for handling what could have been a total headache situation really well :od oh and the tv is great too, i have the 37″ version and i love it :od.

    Purchased tv with 3 year warranty as advertised by amazon only to find when the product arrived that this was not current. Contacted amazon to query warranty offer was initially fobbed off. But was persistent and eventually amazon agreed to give me allianz warranty cover at no cost. I wonder how many customers who purchased at the same time were aware of the problem. This was a bit naughty,particularly as the warranty offer was removed from the amazon site almost immediately. As regards the tv it arrived on time well packaged and relatively easy to set up. I like and trust sony products and hope the tv will be the same.
