The TNS bit of the model you're looking at is just a stand identifier that's confusingly omitted/included on occasions regardless of whether you get a stand with it or not - you may have more joy searching with this removed.

Now...as to the KDFE50A11 bit, I think this might just be the current mainland European/non-UK version of the KDFE50A12 that you'll find much written about on this forum with a quick search. I haven't picked through the below, so I'm not sure what the differences are (if any at all):

KDFE42A11 (50" version not listed on the Irish Sony web-site...)
KDFE50A11 (Belgium)
KDFE50A12 (UK)

Mine has arrived and is all setup, Not gonna say too much at the mo because i'd need to sit down and have a proper play with all the settings. At the moment all ive done is play my 360 on it and i am very impressed and considering the 360 is what i really wanted the tv for its got my thumbs up :smashin:

Got mine on Monday, nearly had a coronary when i saw the size of the box. Stand (two tiered YES!) is easy enough to assemble and very sturdy.

The settings that come as default are awful, have a play with them to get them right.

Now, freeview, it is inferior compared to sky, but i get alot less break up compared to my humax PVR and NO awful squeaks when the signal breaks up which frightened the dog.

Sky is hit and miss depending on the channel or programme.

Xbox 360 is SPOT ON in HD, beautiful, can't wait for PS3 too.

Upscaling dvd (samsung 850) is only slightly better than normal dvd, certainly not as good as i had hoped.

All in all, i'm very happy with it for the money, and i've heard they get better when the bulb burns in.

Screen door effect IS evident now and again, but you get used to it. Certainly better than my five year old forty inch toshiba.

For the money, total bargain :clap:

Well, that does bother me now and again, mainly on sports stuff.

My annoyance in which i'm considering sending it back is the fan noise. I only noticed it last night after turning off my air con and fan in the living room. It's SO loud that I may have to keep my cooling fan on just so i forget about it (if you know what i mean).

Real strange cos even when there is no sound i cant hear a thing. Gonna have a think this weekend and decide what i'm going to do about the tv, the screen door effect is really bugging me now
