We decided we wanted a new TV for the world cup, we had always had Sony Bravias before and once again the high quality has brought us to buying another one.
We bought out TV from the Sony Centre who also provided a 5 year guarentee with the TV. It was delivered within 3 days. It was delivered in a large box and was packed very safely.
The TV is light weight, black in colour with a see through strip on the front where your standby lights etc are.
The TV came with a stand which was easy to attach, it can be moved to different angles, ours is in the corner of the room so this was really useful.
The TV was so easy to set up, the guy in the Sony shop said they do charge for someone to come and set it up for you but it is so easy he advised us to do it ourselves and save our money! He was right it couldn't have been simpler!
The TV has a power saving mode which if the TV is left on for so long without anything being pressed it will go to standby, it does display a warning message when it is about to do it so if you are still watching it you need to just press any button, I normally just press the volume.
We had freesat installed for free when we bought the TV so we got to watch the worldcup in HD which is outstanding, the quality of the picture is unreal you could see the details of people in the crowd and if someone has a spot they are trying to cover with makeup you can still see it! The picture detail is amazing!
The TV also has freeview built into it so you can switch between the freeview and freesat at the flick of a button, it is so easy.
The program guide is very useful as you can see a week in advance and you can set reminders so you don't even have to lift a finger and the TV will automatically turn over.
Overall we are delighted with our purchase and would recommend this TV and any Sony Bravia.
Quite simply innovation at its best. This television delivers the next generation in picture excellence with unrivaled depth, richness and clarity. What's more, you can connect to your favorite digital devices for total entertainment.
