That is a very good price for a 40" Sony Bravia, however it is a very basic tv. Just because it's a Sony don't think it will necessarily be really really good even though some of Sony's premium lcd tvs are really good. I'm sure the pictures with hd will be nice and sharp, and brightly coloured (I haven't actually seen hd content on this particular set but I have on many other similar basic Sony lcds), although this tv won't handle a 24fps (frames per second) signal so you may notice that native 24fps content such as movies on Blu-ray or HD-DVD will have a 'juddering' effect as the player has to do a complicated conversion from 24fps to 60fps. Also, standard def material on these fairly basic lcds will usually be a bit rubbish. I would rather have a 26" with a lovely picture than a 40" with a picture that doesn't impress me.

i know what u mean but all this 24fps bandwagon isn't it just the latest in thing to have.I've watched casino royal on a 2yr old hd ready plasma (panny pv600 i think)and didn't notice anything when going thru a ps3.i not going to use freeview as tv will have multiroom with just ps3 and sky hd connected.All i am concerned with is the hd performance .last years product of year w2000 hasn't got 24fps but still won .next year it will be something else the manufactures will want us to buy.i thought long and hard about 1080p but still believe from what i seen that it is just a sales push for the latest in thing.any views welcome.

When the W2000 won the award last year, it was before the first Blu-ray and HD-DVD players had come out. Therefore it was only tested with Sky HD, standard def DVD and freeview. Since these sources are all either 50 or 60 fps it wasn't of any consequence that the W2000 wasn't compatible with 24fps. However, now that HD players are on the market, and if you plan to use one, such as the PS3, it is important that tvs can handle 24fps as otherwise, as Blu-ray and HD-DVDs are mastered at 24 fps, the player will have to do a real-time frame-rate conversion (ie. 3:2 pulldown) which is is an inherently difficult thing to do, and results in judder. However, if you cannot honestly notice this, then it might not matter to you.
