About Me Enthusiast
Comments about Sony KDL40BX450 - 40" LED HDTV:
I bought this TV 6 years ago and have been very satisfied during that time. I did pay about 4 times more for the old one though.The sound is not too bad but I think it could be better. Could be these old ears too!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
