Sony 40" KDL40EX640
Colors do pop more on this model than on last years which is an improvement but we would still like to see more saturation. That's why this is a great value model.

2011 Sony Models
The new 40" KDL40EX720 series model LCD TV with LED backlighting is no slouch even though it is squarely in the middle of the pack in Sony's lineup for 2011 and 2012. This model will be current until spring 2012 and is a good mid-range choice with 3D compatibility. There is a lot of glare from the screen from bright lights but aside that, it's a competitive model. This is a replacement for the EX710 series which entered the market in mid-2010. It has 1080p, LED edge lit panel and expanded internet features, it is available in 4 sizes.

The Sony KDL40EX620 40" LCD TV (with LED Backlighting) is a 2011 model set to be produced until spring of 2012. It has some nice attributes as follow: Deep dark black levels, 120Hz motionflow, a strong input selection feature, Full Internet browser for search (very unusual for this low price point). On the negative side the side angle viewing quality on this TV is not great. It also has poorer audio quality and volume than we wished for and the remote control is not backlit. But the price point is very attractive. See the full review and video review of the EX620 Series
