I bought this TV a year ago and I love it and would get it today if I could. Picture is as good as plasma if not better. It is a 4:3 ratio, but you should just ask yourself what you watch more of TV or Movies. Right now the HD media that is coming out is getting to be everywhere. 5 NFL games on Sunday. 4-5 Xbox games in HD. HBO in HD, ESPN in HD, Discovery in HD, Prime time TV for the most part in HD. The picture has so much color and detail it is like night and day. Like putting black and white up against color and this TV is a great product to showcase that. Only knock on it is it ways 300 lbs so the stand (which has bevel edges) is recommended on carpet. With the stand anyone could move it anyplace in the room with ease. Great Buy!

I have owned this television for 3 years now and I am just as satisfied today when I power it up as I was the day I took it out of the box. The color is superb and the 40" screen is the ONLY one of its kind in a tube television. Sony has definitely proven itself worthy with this television. It's HD ready and the color/picture quality is unmatched by other tubes. You will even be hard pressed to find a LCD/Plasma in this size to compare w/ the quality. Definitely worth the time/money IF you can find one!!!! The ONLY drawback is this beauty's size/weight, find a good/strong friend to help you load/unload this beast!! Otherwise, you will get to experience EVERY single feature of this tv as you nurse your hernia!!!!!

i bought this tv as my first dip into the HD TV world, and i am shockingly impressed. the sound is amazing, the picture is flawless and the fact that it does NOT have a $300 bulb that needs to be replaced every few years makes it even better. yes, this TV is a monster, it is big and heavy but once you get it where you want it, it is 100% worth it. the features on the TV are great, and the fact that it has 7 inputs (3 of which are HD) means that i can plug in everything without having to worry about switching cables when it comes time to play a game or watch a DVD.

Overall this tv gets a 9/10. it would be a 10 if it were not so heavy, that is the ONLY downside.

This TV worked flawlessly from the time a friend of mine bought it then passed it on to me until now. It finally quit yesterday 05/13/14. I think he bought it in 2002 or 2003. When I had it (2009-2014) because I used to be out of town allot I ran it 24-7 and I mean 24-7 for the lightshow and the noise. I kept wanting to get another TV but as long as this one worked I avoided MOVING it. This thing weighs 325 Lbs, but has a brilliant screen. Finally it met it's demise and I have to say I'm sorry that it had to go but it is time for us to move on. My new replacement weighs in at 31 lbs and as you get older not only bigger is better but also lighter is better. I really do feel a bit of remorse as I take this Icon of HDTV/Flatscreen to the dump but just like this TV I too will achieve the same demise. Dust to dust ashes to ashes.

Great picture and color
I have had this TV over 6 years and never had any problems with it at all.

Has a much better picture in a 4:3: format as well as brightness and contrast control than the Panasonic VIERA TC-P50GT25 50-inch 3D Plasma I just bought. The Pani has a much darker picture so faces in night scene's are much harder to see than my Sony XBR.

The only down side is that it was $3000 new and is 300 Lbs heavy.

FYI... Have had this monster-heavy TV for 10+ years, and it has operated flawlessly with incredible color and clarity production. Todays plasma/LED 'smart' units certainly are a world apart from this 'relic,' and I have some of these newer units in house, but this is still one of my faves to watch, whether tv broadcast or DVD.
