Good: Picture and Sound is fantastic! i bought mine for £352 and its simply the best investment i have.
Bad: I cannot say anything bad about it. not even after 5 months ownership.
Comment: Picture: Fantastic HD and SD. Sound: Could be a little more punchier but i have a seperate av sound setup. It upscales SD really well and i never notice any bleeding or motionblur. Internet video, Widgets and browser all work beautifuly, Plus piture in picture is very handy being a multitasker. I cannot fault anything, nothing major anyway, other than skype camera, hard drive and internet dongle are all expensive and have to be sony made instead of third party copies.
Good: Nice picture, good internet connection & lots of inputs.
Bad: No optional keyboard. Wifi dongle & web cam must be sony specific and cost 2/3 time more than general market.
Comment: The Sony BRAVIA KDL-40CX523 has a great picture. If you are thinking of buying a new LCD TV this is the one. As streaming becomes more popular having a internet connection on your TV will become more desirable and this TV does it well.
The bad side, if you want to start using skype or any app that needs a webcam you have to buy a sony webcam the same goes for the wifi dongle.
Bad: flow motion
Comment: the cheapest set ever with such specifications.
