Enter a world of dazzling picture quality and unlimited entertainment. This elegantly slim LED TV boasts Full HD 1080p for incredible detail and Edge LED backlighting for boosted contrast. Internet connectivity is at your fingertips, so you can watch YouTube clips and access online HD movies, music and more.
Full HD 1080p. - Nothing expresses crystal-clear detail like Full HD 1080p picture quality. It's the highest in-home resolution available and takes advantage of the all-out HD glory of broadcast TV, satellite and other HD sources like your Blu-ray Disc player or PlayStation3 entertainment system.
Lifelike motion. - Watch the football retain its detail during a kickoff and move smoothly as the camera follows it from left to right. Even quick motion seen in action movies appears amazingly realistic as Motionflow XR 240 technology, which takes motion clarity beyond refresh rates, smoothes out the picture where the camera can't for clearer and more natural movement.
Clearly different - Fine details and textures appear in whatever you're watching, even in flat areas. Powered by Sony's advanced noise reduction algorithm, this technology boosts image clarity with heightened contrast and depth that you won't find on most televisions.
So bright and so thin. - Powerful yet thin LEDs deliver a radically brighter picture than conventional LCD backlighting. They also help achieve an ultra-slim TV design that looks beautiful in your home. What's more, Sony's Edge LED Backlight technology delivers outstanding contrast, rich colors and enhanced dark-scene detail.
Go way beyond cable - Welcome to the endless entertainment of the Sony Entertainment Network, where thousands of movies, TV shows, online videos, games and music are always at your fingertips. By connecting to the Internet you can access Full HD 1080p entertainment, 3D content and made-for-TV apps like Netflix, Pandora, YouTube, Facebook and more.
Goodbye wires, hello Wi-Fi. - Make your EX640 series a wireless wonder. Using the UWA-BR100 Wi-Fi adapter (included), you have instant access to stream movies, photos, music and videos straight to your TV from the internet or your home network-without wires.
Against the grain - Dazzle the whole family with ultra-crisp HD clarity and less grain. Digital Noise Reduction enhances detail in whatever you're watching with meticulous processing. It even helps clean up video from USB and other PC sources so the picture looks pristine and vivid.

Internet Access to read Text Only
from Greenland, NH
Comments about Sony KDL40EX640 - 40" LED EX640 Internet TV:
I was looking forward to having a Sony HD Internet access TV but I am very disappointed since I am limited to text only. I cannot check my email since it won't load fully, I cannot watch any small videos such as a news clip on the internet since I get a message stating I need Adobe Flash player and I cannot download it to watch videos unless it is through a preloaded app which many are for a fee. The only way I can watch any news clips or the like is if I set up my laptop to this Internet TV. I ask myself why would someone need a TV like this if I have to use my laptop hooked-up to it to view news clips. This is suppose to have internet access. There is not much you can do on the Internet unless you just want to read everything minus any clips. I sure hope there is going to be a download put out by Sony to enable viewing of internet clips directly from the TV. The older model was able to do such things.

My best TV.
from Bay Shore, NY
Sony has produced a great television. However a computer key for accessing the internet would be good for people with vision problems.

Sony Still the One and Only
from Hickory, NC
I have an old Trinitron still works. I bought this to replace a 36" SDTV. I never realized how great a movie could look in HD. Glad I chose this Sony!
