I cannot fault this tv!

 

So, nearly two months on and I have to say, I am loving my new Bravia tv. 49 inches is perfect in my lounge. Th colour is great, the blacks are deep, and when using the TVs own speakers instead of my separate sound bar, the sound is pretty impressive...

Nearly perfect LED TV
