Dom, Derby Multi-purpose viewer

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
The KDL-40D3500 has a lovely looking, stylish design that's pretty easy to use despite the amount of options and features - it's basically ready to go out of the box. With very good image quality for a 'bottom of the range' TV and superb Hi-definition quality it is excellent for both basic and advanced users.
Bad points:
The biggest gripe I have with the KDL-40D3500 is that it struggles to cope with Bravia Sync when connected to my more recent Reciever and Blu-ray player. Though this could be a settings issue, which would be odd given the ease of use of the rest of the features, it detracts from the principal that Bravia Sync is supposed to make things easier.
The Blu-ray picture quality occasionally suffers from slight stutter due to it's 60Hz but is barely noticable under casual viewing and never with a standard definition picture. A 100 or 200Hz set would not have this problem. A greater contrast ratio and more blacks would also help picture quality, but as a 'bottom of the range' set the quality is great.
