40” BRAVIA ® BX420-Series HDTV
I have had several LCD’s and LED’s tried prior to this baby also; I have tried comparison with concurrent 2 LED displays from another 2 renowned brands. There I could dispute the myth of LED advantage over LCD’s except power usage. That would be tackled by the Eco feature built in and some adjustments to the display properties and you are through.
BX 420 display and the other graphic characteristics seems superior to others. Deep Blacks, Accurate colors in mid range and above is well ahead especially to an entry level model.
The matte screen gives an added advantage in bright atmospheres.
There may be initial glitches when we plug it for the very first time but, there you get so called settings to do the trick. Customizing it with good care you could overcome all these. Even you could customize the sound system to a very good standard and the surround sounds work great.
I love it and enjoy every bit of it’s performance.

LOVe this TV!!! Just got it today, but will update/delete this review if anything goes wrong. Black levels are excellent for an entry-level LCD (it has no LED-backlighting). Colors seem perfectly accurate and look great when turned up 10-15 notches. I recommend adjusting the settings a good bit to your liking, such as going into advanced and playing with the contrast and black level settings. Eventually you'll find a combination that really makes this baby sing! Only downside is poor sound -- best buy a pair of speakers or more, or a soundbar or something like that.

Everyone is 5 ft tall & 2 ft wide
Why build a 40" tv if you can't get a nature picture using the full screen? Without cutting off the top and bottom. Without having 4" wide black strips around the perimeter? I've set all the settings the same as my 46" which I don't have a problem with. Same aggravating result. This web site and and the menu for telephone tech support are just as bad as the tv picture I sh have kept the old RCA. .

Functioned for 5 Days
This TV stopped working after 5 days, refusing to start/reset and all I have is a flashing LED. Customer Technical Support was unable to help, now I have to inconvenience myself to run it to some "approved service center' in my work time.
First Sony product for 10 years...................... probably the last too.
