      A quality tv which will provide you with a great viewing experience

      Its been nearly a year since I purchased our Sony Bravia and I haven't looked back since! We used to own one of those huge black boxes, a Panasonic and with very poor reception, and its really quite ridiculous to think for how long we put up with it. Anyway on to the TV.

      We currently have freesat on our TV, and I must say the picture quality is excellent. The colours are sharp and vibrant and the HD channels really do look incredibly detailed.

      The sound quality also is very good, although I'm sure purchasing surround sound speakers would improve a movie watching experience, it still holds its own against the excellent picture.

      The build of the TV is slick and stylish, the black not distracting from the mainscreen, and the stand likewise shares this. Its a great improvement over the hulking black box which we used to own.

      I can't say I've used the inbuilt wifi too much myself, but we have a blu-ray player that has internet anyway, which we've used once or twice for bbc iplayer, but generally its not something we use.

      The HDMI inputs are great for watching your camera photos and movies on the tv as well as connecting your laptop to, however the cable you need for this does not come with the tv, it must be bought separately.

      There is also the usb input which allows you to view your movies on USB, a feature which I've seen shops make use of but one that I don't use myself.

      For people with consoles, the tv has scart inputs too which we use for our wii. The immersion factor has increased significantly with this TV and the same can be said for movies.

      One frustration which I'm sure many people share is the number of damn remotes you need just to watch something. We have the remote for the tv, the humax remote (the freesat box), and the bluray remote. The remote for the tv has lots of buttons which I'm sure I will probably never use, however it remains intuitive as all the important buttons are in the middle and self-explanatory.

      All in all, this was a great purchase, (at the time there was a sale going on) and I don't have any problems with it. Yes, will probably be the case that 3D tv will become more prevalent, but I don't see myself upgrading any time soon. I thoroughly recommend.
