Sony Bravia KDL-40EX700
3 Star Review  cnet.com - Mar 17, 2010

THE GOOD: Innovative automatic power-off feature saves energy; extremely energy-efficient; matte screen works well in brighter rooms; relatively accurate color; solid Internet services including Netflix, Amazon Video, and numerous niche videos; snappy menu system. THE BAD: Reproduces lighter black levels; darker areas tinged blue; cannot adjust dejudder processing much; less-even screen uniformity; Netflix image quality worse than on other streaming devices. THE BOTTOM LINE: Sonys midrange edge-lit LED-based LCD is nothing special from an image quality standpoint, but its Internet video and eco-friendliness will attract a lot of buyers.

Sony BRAVIA KDL-40EX700
1.5 Star Review  productwiki.com - Nov 1, 2010

The Sony BRAVIA KDL-40EX700 is one of five Internet-connected HDTVs announced in 2010 as part of the KDL-EX700 Series. As a more affordable option to the KDL-NX700 series, the KDL-EX700 models, including the 40” KDL-40EX700, do not include integrated wireless connectivity, although it is available as an optional upgrade. The KDL-40EX700 supports full 1080p high-definition resolution with an ultra-fast frame-rate, partially thanks to its Motionflow 120Hz technology. Included also are a plethora of connectivity options, including HDMI, composite, component, PC, and most importantly, Ethernet. Once connected to a network, users can stream movies and videos, or directly access the latest news and Twitter updates. Plus, USB-enabled devices like camcorders and MP3 players can be accessed through the unit’s USB port. Features KDL-EX700 Series 40” HDTV Full 1080p Resolution WiFi READY Integrated Ethernet Port HDMI Connectivity USB Interface Internet Updates Video Streaming Specifications Video Signal: 1080p/1080i/720p/480p/480i Display Resolution: 1080p (1920x1080) Screen Size: ... PROS: (1) well-designed menu structure that makes setup easy and intuitive, offers fine-tuning (2) online services offer a wide array of pre-configured media services, many in HD ... CONS: (1) the blacks have a clear blue tinge (2) LED side illumination leaves the brightness uneven across the display area (3) viewing angle is narrow, need to be directly in front of the display (4)"Wi-Fi Read" actually means there is no Wi-Fi, and a proprietary accessory is necessary for wireless (5) when turned on takes at least a full minute for the TV to respond to remote control commands

Insect inside the set
2 Star Review     

Strengths: Quality Picture.

Weakness: Poor Customer Service.

In April of 2010 I purchased a new KD40EX700 Sony Bravia set. In June of 2010 an insect was seen crawling behind the glass front of the tv set. Thinking the insect was on the glass I attempted to remove the insect. Since the insect was inside the set I smashed the insect and it is now stuck (dead) inside the set. When I called SONY to have the set cleaned or replaced they said this is not a warranty issue. They had every excuse in the book how the insect got inside the set and said it is not there problem. While the TV set works fine I would be concerned about this happening again. BUYER BEWARE.
