Poor Digital Tuner for OTA Reception
from Omaha, NE 68104, USA
Comments about Sony 40" Class LED 1080p Smart HDTV:
I receive my TV channels over-the-air with a quality external antenna and cable. This TV has had a very difficult time receiving some of my local channels. And several of those received frequently suffer from image degradation/pixelation. Compared to another older HDTV which receives more channels with more consistent signal strength and using the same setup, the Sony comes in a poor and distant second. Sony was contaced about the issue but unable to resolve. A disappointment and regrettable purchase.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Samsung has a better feature
If I want to open channel 7, then I must enter 7.1. The ".1" addition is automatic on Samsung. This feature is very important since if the Sony set has not warmed to the point it demands your entry my end up as .1 or some variation depending on the number of numerals in the channel being selected. This cause the audio to make a God awful racket. I must mute for safety when selecting a channel. A real pain!
Exceptional HDTV!!!! Stunning picture and sound!!
I would recommend this TV to anyone of my friends. Reasonable price and superb quality. Easy hookup and very "user friendly!" I'm looking for a Swivel TV arm bracket for my wall right now...I was hoping if anyone has any solid suggestions for one that would be compatible and an easy install for my Flat screen? I would appreciate any comments or feedback...Thank You!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
I love it's programming layout and how it stays on the last input I used. I only have one problem and that's with the AC power plug. It seems to be very sensitive and the TV shuts down if I move it.
from Hilton Head, SC
I had a little trouble setting up the tv and Sony customer service went far and beyond to help me. I would recommend this product to everyone. I love it. Wish I had bought it sooner.

Second Bravia that failed
from Colorado Springs, CO 80923, USA
Second Sony Bravia that got broken, this one within 23 days of purchase date.
Best Picture Ever
The 40â€� (diag.) Sony W600B Series LED HDTV exemplifies some of the most spectacular and vivid colors of all screen-viewing devices currently on the market today. I recently watched The Sound of Music (1965) on Blu-ray; I must say the visual experience was simply breath taking.
A great tv.

I love this tv. The picture is excellent. It set up easily. Connected to my wifi home network flawlessly. The apps work fine.
Glad We Took the Leap
from Orange, CA 92866, USA
We bought a Sony 40 inch LCD eight years ago after getting some money from a giant branch falling on and demolishing our old car at my former place of employment. We noticed that suddenly we were losing channels and the scan function was not able to retrieve them. Despite the still great picture quality I was forced to bite the bullet and buy another TV. I decided Sony had the quality and reliability that we wanted and because of cost restraints opted for the 40 inch again. So far an excellent choice on our part. The old Sony cost us around a thousand dollars and weighed 60 pounds. This one was less than half the cost and less than half the weight. I only had to assemble the stand and that was it. Turned it on and the firmware led me through all the set up steps. WiFi connected immediately and streaming so far has been seamless. The picture quality has been stunning using just our antenna. Audio is adequate but nothing to cheer about. The speakers are good, but are still small considering the space constraints of the cabinet. I use the optical output (TOSLINK) to connect to our stereo system for a fuller audio experience. This has all the usual connectors. Our DVD player is also Sony so the HDMI cable connected the two devices via BRAVIA® Sync. If you have shows, movies or music on a USB drive simply plug it in and stream from that device. Waaay too many features to describe here. Just take the menu items one day at a time, experiment and see what give you the best picture and sound. The only negative, if you can call it that, is the frame/case is so much smaller and lighter than the old TV so our visual acuity is fooled and it feels like the picture is smaller. Plus, the stand is lower so it takes some getting used to after having the old set sit 4 inches higher for eight years. I'll just build a small stand and we'll be set.
could be better
Pros- picture, sound, easy to use menu, variety of apps Cons- no option to connect wireless or wired keyboard/mouse, white noise when switching between modes
