Sony KDL-40R450A Review
4 Star Review  projectorcentral.com - Apr 26, 2013

The Direct LED backlit Sony KDL-40R450 has no pretensions about being the centerpiece of a home theater, but this simple to use, non-Smart TV provides good picture quality and would be an excellent addition to your bedroom. Actually, at about 16 pounds, this 40-inch TV is light enough to tote from room to room.

Awesome HDTV!
5 Star Review   By BarbaraElizabeth on Sony - Official Store - Jan 18, 2014   

I am extremely satisfied with my purchase. I went to see it at ABT Electronics, where I purchased it. I was a little bit concerned with it's size at first. It was dwarfed by all the other larger screen HDTV televisions there. I am extremely satisfied after returning home with my purchase. It is extremely easy to set up. It ended up being the perfect size HDTV television for my living room. The picture is crystal clear & sharp.

This is a ' KEEPER ' for sure !!
5 Star Review   By Marc2992 on Sony - Official Store - Jan 14, 2014   

Picture quality and features are EXCELLENT for a Sony at this price point ! TV has tons of settings to give you the exact viewing you are looking for. It may not have ALL the ' bells and whistles ' of some other models, however it is PERFECT for us that don't need or want them ! Ordered this directly from Sony.ca...Delivery was FAST and the customer rep I was speaking with answered all my questions in a VERY professional manner ! Very happy NEW Sony customer !! ????? !!

Such an awesome TV
5 Star Review   By Patrick4 on Sony - Official Store - Dec 14, 2013   

I purchased this TV mostly on it's in store look, the small bezel and good looking picture kind of sold me but I have an 8 year old Sony 46" HDTV that still works perfectly so I kind of leaned towards Sony in the first place. I got it for the bedroom to play my PS4 and it has surpassed every expectation I had. Amazing built in speakers and perfect picture, it is really an awesome tv. Weighing 17lbs compared to my old bravia at 72 is also a cool little added extra. Great TV worth every penny.

Playstation Perfection
5 Star Review   By Gamespy on Sony - Official Store - Nov 5, 2013   

I was skeptical about LEDs at first, coming from one of the two old widescreen CRTs ever made, I was leaning more towards a plasma. I had heard a lot of complaints about motion blur, false blacks and input lag in LEDs and LCDs. Then I went shopping, not one plasma under $1500 had the darker "smart glass" every plasma needs to be considerable. Then I learned of Sonys "motion flow" and "game mode" in this particular model. I did a lot of research and read a lot reviews, nearly all were positive. Throw in the under $500 price tag and I was sold. 99% of my home entertainment comes from my PS3, streaming TV, Netflix, Sports, DVDs, BluRays, Music and of course Gaming, so I was hoping matching my PS3 up with a Sony TV would be a good move. I'll admit I had some doubts at first, the default calibrations were producing some black crush, ghosting and color shifting in the first few movies and games I tested. I got it all pretty close and then I found this top notch AVS calibrator online, ran the MP4 from a flashdrive and followed their pdf tutorial... and... Wow, no blur, no lag, no grain. Deep blacks, rich vibrant colors and beautiful depth in contrast. All of my media looks astounding! Even blown up videos in the web browser look smooth and HD. Games themselves appear nearly 3 dimensional, titles like Ratchet & Clank even out shine Pixar characters in the theater... This TV was meant to be paired with the Playstation and should really be advertised as such... It does take some knowledgeable tweaking and calibrating but it's more than worth it.

Awesome TV
5 Star Review   By n7tsn on Sony - Official Store - Oct 21, 2013   

I ordered this TV on Thursday and receiver it on Friday via FEDEX, super fast shipping. I currently have a 55" Sony Bravia 3D TV along with numerous Sony products which is why I ordered this 40" Sony TV for my bedroom. Awesome picture and super easy to install and hook up (maybe 20 minutes after I received it). I would definitely recommend this product to my friends.

OVERALL GOOD VALUE
4 Star Review   By NIKKO on Sony - Official Store - Oct 1, 2013   

Overall the performance is very good. I find the lack of various inputs is a issue for us, i.e. no "S" video, only on component input, and no composite inputs. The TV has a generous amount of features to customize the unit to your needs.

Great TV for the price
4 Star Review   By ocgamerguy on Sony - Official Store - Sep 23, 2013   

No complaints about this TV other than what I expected. There's a bit of distortion when watching outside of recommended viewing angles, and I wish there were more HDMI outputs, but I knew that purchasing the TV. The thing I didn't read or think to look for is that there's no composite (R/W) audio out, only a headphone jack. Otherwise, quality is great and I have no regrets on the purchase!

5 Star Review   By rustycat on Sony - Official Store - Sep 9, 2013   

I am so loving our new tv. We do not have cable or satellite, only our outside antennae and all we had to do was plug it in to the new 40" tv and it is working beautifully. We have a total of 15 stations and could not be happier with our purchase and the quality of Sony products.

5 Star Review   By mdgonzo on Sony - Official Store - Sep 5, 2013   

The image quality in the television is absolutely breathe taking. The resolution on the television transitions through frames seamlessly. The design is sleek and stunning, without taking away from the room. The sound alone is clear and doesn't need the volume to be turned up in order to fill the room. I would buy this TV for every room in my house ! Flawlessly gorgeous.

The most affordable way to enjoy my PS3 and Vaio
5 Star Review   By LiquidvsSolidSnake on Sony - Official Store - Sep 3, 2013   

The KDL 40 is fantastic. It shows amazing images at full 1080p, and it is incredibly sturdy. I already owned a 40 inch Bravia, but this model is superior in design. Since I now live away for college, I missed my old Sony TV, especially hooking up my Vaio to a big screen to enjoy movies and writing papers. I also brought my PS3 along, hoping that whenever I have some downtime I can still be wowed by a great gaming experience. I have recently purchased the Last of Us and I couldn't wait to try it out on the KDL 40, it looked spectacular. The sound is also great, the speakers offer a clear and crisp sound, and it can go pretty loud too without getting that annoying feedback one normally finds when the volume is turned too loud on a TV. Usually I would hook this up to external speakers, but given that I live with other roommates the sound is good for what I need. The KDL 40 also came at a great price. I could obviously find a cheaper TV elsewhere, but I know that I won't get the same quality image and sound that I will get with my KDL. Things like Motionflow make it truly spectacular to watch Blu-rays. My roommate saw me watch Avatar and said that the people looked alive. It's a testament to Sony, that it can craft such amazing ways to enjoy films, games and other digital media. 5/5

Best TV yet
5 Star Review   By ZUKOR on Sony - Official Store - Sep 2, 2013   

I have been buying Sony TV's since 1973 as well as their other products. As usual they have hit a home run. True 1080p is the only way to go. Beautiful picture with vivid colors and deep rich blacks. Someone complained about ONLY 2 HDMI inputs. Google HDMI splitters. Problem solved. Patrick, my sales rep went above and beyond the call of duty. All together a wonderful experience.

4 Star Review   By VHSteve on Adorama - Aug 22, 2013   

The picture is awesome. The setup was easy enough. Another or even 2 more HDMI ports would be nice.

Right one.
5 Star Review   By Simpleandeasy on Sony - Official Store - Aug 21, 2013   

Just what I needed for the M bedroom. Not to big and on sale was cheaper than the Sam's/ Costco ones. It seems the quality is the same as it was 30 years ago, good.

One of my best purchases yet!
5 Star Review   By Aervo on Sony - Official Store - Aug 20, 2013   

I have been a loyal customer and i have yet to say anything bad about their products. This TV was a gift to my wife, after knowing the quality and picture clarity it didn't stop me from buying it. The TV was a great size for our master bedroom that super exceeded our expectations.

Nice basic tv
5 Star Review   By Arubiana on Sony - Official Store - Aug 19, 2013   

I bought this tv about 6 weeks ago. I love it, the blacks are rich and the colors are vivid. It doesn't have a lot of bells and whistles (smart tv, 3D, etc.) but it a wonderful set for day to day tv and movies watching.

It took watching tv to a whole new level!
5 Star Review   By tavo1122 on Sony - Official Store - Aug 19, 2013   

I'm so glad we got this tv! Never care much for big screen tvs, so having a 40" screen is kind of a big deal for me. We got XBox and streaming Netflix at home. Everything looks amazing. I am a happy camper.

KDL-40R450A good HDTV.
4 Star Review   By jto787 on Sony - Official Store - Jun 5, 2013   

Base on price it's a good HDTV, this is my 1st HDTV Sony got this for gaming on the PS3 picture quality is great love the feature of power saving it dont heat so much even in MAX setting. The bottom line works really well with the playstation 3 sync both work work like as one, that why one of the reason took Sony over Samsung this time.

Great TV
5 Star Review   By Matt on Adorama - May 28, 2013   

The Picture on this TV is absolutely amazing! Clean, clear, bright and crisp. Setup was extremely easy and even a novice can easily set this TV up (wall or table top mount) easily within a few minuets.

HD 40'''
4 Star Review   By Adel1827 on Sony - Official Store - May 11, 2013   

It arrived with a cracked screen. Called Customer Support and was asked to send it back. I had to drive to FedEx to drop it off. It took only 4 days from the time I sent the broken one back until the replacement was delivered. Representatives at Sony we're really courteous and knowledgeable.

Broken on Delivery
3 Star Review   By thearchitect on Sony - Official Store - Apr 2, 2013   

The construction quality of this screen is poor, it was not entirely assembled and the screen was broken. no damage to the box and no marks on the bezel but clearly it was damaged during assembly. Returning tomorrow. Very disappointed. Will wait to review the actual function of the TV once I receive a working model.

My family loves this TV
5 Star Review   By Lthaga on Sony - Official Store - Mar 11, 2013   

The picture quality is great, and the sound is amazing! Changing channels is quick. The feature to save your favorite channels saves time from having to flip channels until you find what you are looking for. We have Plasma, LED and LCD TVs and this one is our favorite! If you loose your remote, the controls on the side are easy to use. Our previous models had small buttons that you had to shine a light on in order to figure out which one was which. Sony made them larger and with different shapes for you to manipulate the channels with ease. The settings are very simple and easy to get to. Cons: Channel and Volume buttons on the remote are located near the bottom making it uncomfortable to manipulate. Picture in Picture doesn't work with everyone due to the need to hook up your computer, not all computers are compatible. We really wanted a 50", but settled on this 40" because of the quality and price.

Great entry level tv
5 Star Review   By bearsbeware on Sony - Official Store - Mar 6, 2013   

The tv produces great picture quality and has decent sound. Price is a bit higher than other brands but the quality that Sony produces is unmatched.

Based off of 2012 predecessor
4 Star Review   By enavarro0764 on Sony - Official Store - Feb 20, 2013   

Base off of the last model, it should be a pretty good picture, especially compared to its competitors. And to the review below, this is a non wifi model which I believe is required for dlna... unless i am mistaken of course.

"Using a Mobile High Definition Link cable" I guess SONY has not heard of DLNA.
