Please be aware that this unit is a 60-Hz. You would be hard-pressed to learn this from the specs and reviews.

While 120-Hz units cost more, and reduce blur, the quality of this 60-Hz unit is adequate, especially at this price. All TV signals are broadcast and/or recorded in 60-Hz. Thus, any 120-Hz or 240-Hz unit is not receiving/displaying a higher-quality signal, but merely interpolating the time-slices between the 60-cycle images (a digital scrubbing, as it were), to reduce blur.

Probably info overload, but I just wanted to say that it's a 60-Hz unit, in case anyone is looking for that spec. Wikipedia has an article on "HDTV blur" (section 100 Hz+) that explains it all.
Revision, about a month after purchase: I am very happy with this unit. The product page on Amz. is a bit misleading re: "Clear Resolution Enhancer" (whatever that is). Amz indicates that this unit does not have it, but the manufacturer's shipping crate clearly states that this unit (like the EX640 unit) does have it. Specs constantly change; inquiring minds want to know. It seems to reduce the out-of-focus conditions on the old Hollywood DVDs that are just plain old VHS transfers. Nice!

Another thing: older analog SONYs let you "Fix Channel" (lock it) on, say, channel 3. This is for us folks that get all their broadcast signals from a cable box--which has all signals coming out of the box to the TV on, say, channel 3. This keeps the kids and spouse and dog from hitting the numeric channel numbers on the remote, and inadvertently going into a black-screen situation. And the subsequent troubleshooting, puzzlement, etc....

First, I have to say we were a little worried about ordering a TV online. I talked to somoene in the "big products" (not the right phrase, exactly) department at Amazon who assured me the TV would arrive in perfect condition, and if not, returning a TV was as easy as returning a book. So we ordered. And the TV did arrive in perfect condition. So if any of you are worried about ordering such a large and expensive item, set your worries aside.

As far as the TV goes, I cannot give you a technical review. All I know is the picture is GREAT, it was easy to set up and it's intuitive to use. We aren't gamers and we don't have 6 different things to plug into it. We have a DVD player. That's it. Movies look and sound great for our needs.

I've used this product for a full day and I am blow away from what it delivers. I bought this TV for heavy gaming (PS3 & PC), watching Dish Network Satellite channels, and Blu-ray movies. I've tested each of these criteria on the Sony KDL40BX450 and have seen amazing clarity. There are also lots of features that it has which add to your personal viewing experience (i.e. different aspect ratios, scene selects, equalizer, etc.). The BRAVIA Sync Functionality works great as well (provided you have a capable SONY device which supports the feature).

Additional Information: I have set this up in a small to medium size room, so viewing distance is not a problem. I'd recommend this model even if you're planning on installing it in the living room. Also, don't bother listening to another reviewer who stated that this is not a BRAVIA model. There is a big fat "BRAVIA" label on the top left of the TV (not to mention it has BRAVIA Sync).

To conclude, I would recommend this product to anyone who is looking for a quality LCD 40-incher with a great price.

I have been a Sony user/buyer since the first Walkmans appeared. I still have my 1992 Sony rack system that has been moved countless times and been through hell. The 5 disc carousel still works great but the tape-deck finally gave-up a couple years ago. Sony really shines with this Bravia. I wanted one ever since I first set eyes on one in a Fred Meyer store in Oregon. I FINALLY was able to purchase the 40inch Bravia (Best Buy) and by then (2010) they had introduced the "motion flow" technology which really enhances the viewing experience. I think I paid $800.00 that summer. Purchase a Sony Blu-Ray player at the same time you buy the Bravia, the absolute best 1080p flat-screen on the market!! You will NEVER go back to 720p or regular DVD's again. The improvement is that good. It redefines the old HD and has an almost 3D effect with some animation blu-ray movies. The Bravia has many inputs/outputs for components, game systems, etc, and you will want to invest the extra 40 bucks for the HDMI cable. It saves a lot of time and helps if you have additional components to add like surround sound system (which I hooked up to that old 1992 5.1 surround/lol) Just buy it. You will be glad you did and I wouldn't be writing this/wasting my time if I didn't think that the Sony Bravia tops them all!!! Personally, I find the 40 inch a very nice size. One more neat thing about the Bravia, it doesn't have that cheap-glossy glass screen like those cheap Vizeo's. The screen is matte which reduces glare tremendously. I can't stand TV's and laptops with a shiny screen, what a drag.
