Product Description

Ready for HD done the Sony way Sony's KDL-40V4100 brings 1080p picture quality home with amazing, Sony-exclusive features like the XMB (Xross Media Bar) with 3D graphics, DMeX capability so you can add functionality to your TV, and picture quality technologies like ACE (Advanced Contrast Enhancer) and BRAVIA Engine 2. Full HD 1080p means the XBR(R) connections accept 1080p signals and the Display will render that signal in Full HD 1080p. Take full advantage of Blu-ray Disc players and PlayStation(R) 3 systems that can deliver 1080p content. The latest version of Sony's respected BRAVIA Engine fully Digital video processor uses a collection of unique SONY algorithms to significantly reduce noise and produce sharp, vibrant, life-like images. Sony's Advanced Contrast Enhancer (ACE) uses real-time image processing to dynamically adjust backlight levels for improved Contrast without masking details the filmmaker intended you to see. ACE delivers deep blacks in darker scenes, as well as fine details in shadows and other dark areas of the picture for a difference you can truly see. Add to that a sophisticated, piano black design, 24p capability so you can get the most out of the movies you watch on Blu-ray and DVD, 4 HDMI inputs along with three other HD-capable connections, and what you have is a television that can bring dreams to life.

Customer Reviews:

  • Very Well Pleased
    I've been researching LCD TVs for over a year now. The two main things that drew me to this model are the SteadySound (volume leveling) and built in video upconversion features.

    The SteadySound could be a bit more aggressive in limiting the dynamic range of the volume, but I'm being picky there, and nobody else has the feature at all, nearly as I can tell. It's really nice not to have car dealer ads blare at me when it goes to commercial (do they *really* think that makes us *more* likely to buy from them?).

    I could not be more pleased with the image quality on this set.

    The way I see it, for now, and probably some time to come, most television channels will be SD. Even after the switchover I expect that to be the case. Because of that, I was most interested in a set that would not look crummy with an SD feed.

    This set fills the bill. Yes, full up HD feeds do look much better than SD feeds do, but for the most part even SD feeds look even better on this set than they did on the CRT it replaced.

    It's a kick to see even my old VHS tapes looking great, and it's nice to be able to contentedly wait for prices on Blu-Ray players to drift down out of nose-bleed territory.

    For reference, I am a pretty techno-savvy fellow, but I also haven't read the manual for this set, only referenced it via its index a few times to understand things on the menu that weren't self-explanatory. I've found it easy to use and very pleasant to watch....more info

  • Great Sony Picture Quality + white dot "sparkle" issue fixed
    I just brought this TV and love love it. It was between this model and a Samsung model when I went looking. I had a lot of Sony products so I went with this model. I am so glad I did. We have another HD TV but the regular station look bland. Not withthis TV the regular stations look great and the HD station look even better. The TV has a guide which walks you through the steps to set it up which are very easy. I love this TV no regrets. It did cost a few hundred dollars more than some other brand models but well worth it. You won't be sorry if you invest the extra money and get this TV.

    Many folks are also complaining about the White dot (Sparkle) problem that can be seen during HDMI source playback at the top corner of the screen. Well it looks like Sony has fixed the issue through a simple software update for our TV. You simply have to either download the update to your USB flash drive or give Sony a call and they will mail you the USB flash drive with the update so you can connect it to your TV and update its software to fix this sparkle issue. As simple as that....more info

  • Great TV, not quite White Glove delivery service
    This TV is excellent right out of the box. After using it with a conventional DVD player and a Comcast HD box, it is what I expected. HD channels were terrific and convential stations had greater clarity than by prior 32 inch Panasonic Viera. Blue Ray player is obviously on the horizon to synch with this TV.
    The "White Glove" delivery promised by Amazon (since they sold this one) is anything but. Purchasers should be aware that the base needs to be attached to the set and screws used to secure it. This is specified to be a two person job. The driver had specific instructions to not attach the table top base, but just to unpack it and then set it where the purchaser wants it, as if this can be done without attaching the base. Then they are supposed to leave, but they want you to sign a form stating among other things that the power and picture work, while not setting it up. Just doing all the things on the check list would have kept the driver there for half an hour to make all the connections and try the product....more info

  • Awesome hi-tech unit
    Others have spoken well here. I bought this unit for my daughter. It was delivered nicely as mine was. FIVE stars to Sony and FIVE stars to info
  • Absolutely perfect.
    My experience with this set started of rocky. The first set I received was dead right out of the box (bad power supply). **I did not order my set from Amazon.**

    After waiting a week, on pins and needles, for my replacement I can say it was well worth it. The picture is flawless. I am using the Dish Network ViP722 connected with HDMI. I have noticed no "sparkles" or artifacts of any kind. My locals received with an over the air anntena are flawless as well. As a note, I an using the ViP722 OTA input, and not the TV's tuner. SD channels look good as well.

    My SD DVD player displays well on the TV, but I have noticed some distortion on letters and words during opening and ending credits on some movies. I am positive that is due to the limitations of my DVD player, so I have an upconverting DVD player on order. BluRay is out of my current price point. I did connect my PC to the TV using the VGA connection, played a DVD, and sat in awe so I know that new life will be given to my DVD collection. I also played a level of Crysis and that was an awesome experience. I told my wife that I had found my new PC monitor, but she kindly asked me to put the computer back in the other room :(

    I can not evaluate the TV's speakers because I have an audio receiver running my sound, but I am using the Tosslink audio out connection to my audio receiver and that works flawlessly.

    The TV's menu is set up nicely, and the aspect and picture options are easily changed with the press of a button on the remote without having to access the menu.

    I'll end my review by saying this---Awesome TV!

  • Love it, and loved having it delivered to my living room
    We love this TV. It's pretty easy to use, and the picture and sound are great. I can't say how this would stack up side-by-side with another brand, but we have absolutely no complaints, and compared to the CRT it replaced, well, lets just say it's in another league! The delivery service was good - they came when they said they would and set it up in my living room. What more could I ask for. ...more info
