Great tv, but not really a smart tv, has pre loaded apps that you can’t change or add too, so mis leading on the sales write up. It uses opera tv which sony no longer uses as they’ve switched to google play which you cannot load onto this tv, even though its a cureent model. Quality is excellent though.
This is a great TV set much better than the Bravia 32" that it replaced. It is easy to set up and gives excellent results even though I am over 70 miles from the transmitter.I would have had no hesitation giving it 5 stars but I did encounter a problem when it came to mounting it. I have my TV, corner and wall bracket mounted. With my previous 32" model this was not a problem as all the external connections are on the rear panel at right angles to the screen. This 40" set has all the connections on a side panel which means that all the cables extend beyond the side of the set and unless you have tight bends in the cables you cannot get the set to sit flush to the wall, tight bends are not a good idea especially on the on the co-ax antenna cable. I had to buy 90 deg. adaptors for the coax, the HDMI, the USB and the opto audio out cables before I could get a flush fit without straining the cables and sockets.
As a TV it's ok, picture and sound seem ok.the installed apps offer other viewing choices, although Amazon video doesn't work!Also I was not that impressed with the web viewer, but it's not that important, better to use the internet on a computer anyhow!By far the most annoying thing about this TV is that there are only 2 HDMI ports and they do not work properly.I can get 1 port to work and the other one doesn't seem to work at all, tried using a splitter cable, but didn't get any joy, from what I have found out from various forums, it's a common problem with the whole KDL range, the forums offer a number of various methods for solving the problems,which may work for some people but not for all! Oh nearly forgot to say, The remote is pretty annoying, scrolling through the channel list is slow unless you repeatedly tap it, and I keep on pressing other buttons by mistake as they are situated too closely to the directional pad.I could probably have gotten a better TV for the money, but at the end of the day it's a television and it displays all the channels that are available on free view without having to have a separate box and that's all you need really.
