The Sony KDL-40W905A is a fine example of a 40" set - but not necessarily the brightest star. Overall, it's good - and certainly it benefits from some pretty nifty features from Sonys vision buffs (including their Triluminos display and X-Reality PRO processing engine), but it is up against some fairly strong competition from the likes of Samsung and Panasonic, and for us it just misses out on being the best on the block at this size.

However, it's still a brilliant set, and Sony fans will love it. The picture is probably its strongest feature, and it certainly looks great. We found it adept on both movies and television alike. It's Full HD and has both Freeview HD and Freesat HD as standard. It's also got an impressive refresh rate thanks to its Motionflow XR enhancer. Motion is indeed rendered well - it doesn't quite compete with some of the plasma sets out there, but holds its own well in the LED market.

Smart features are easy thanks to the bullt in wireless, and you'll enjoy accessing Sony's wealth of features online. Catch up TV is also easy to use - the Smart features lack some of the sparkle that some other sets bring to the table, but overall its a pleasureable experience that you will find hard to fault.

If you are a 3D fan, its easy to get started thanks to the two pairs of glasses included. There's also an option to add a web camera to allow you to make Skype calls to friends and family too. It will even record to USB too so things are simple.

So why aren't we shouting loudly about it? Well, there's nothing wrong with the set, it's just that you might find the competition just takes the edge on some of the features. Take the Smart functions - they are excellent but not outstanding. It's just those little things that slightly detract in a tough market. However, there is some balance - that 5 year warranty for collecting the set is free, and that can make quite a bit of difference.

Overall, if you have already decided this set is the one for you we know you won't be disappointed and we'd say go for it. If you are pondering on other sets around the same price mark, it may be wirth looking into this a little more before opting for this set. However, you may still end up going for this Sony - it is a good set after all.
