Help, do I go for Sony KDL40U2000U or Philips 37PFL5522D ?

My parents have the Philips and I love it, I was just about to order myself one when the latest Makro Mail popped through my door to offer the Sony at £549 + vat. This price is approx £50 more then the Philips but within my budget, just.

I have seen the Philips in action every day, and as mentioned, love it. But I haven't seen the Sony. It is 40" so a bit bigger then the 37" Philips, but what about the quality ? I use a seperate sound system, so I don't care about sound quality, but I do care about picture. At the moment I have a Techno Sonic 32" which although great for the price, pales against the Philips. Has anyone seen the Sony in action ? The size isn't that big a deal, so forget about that aspect really. If the Sony is as good as the Philips or better, I would obviously go for that. But if it is not as good quality, but makes up for it due to bigger screen, then I will go for the Philips.

Thanks for any advice !!


Take the philips because the sony is an old model and the very basic specs and not good performance
