If you compare the video processing properties of D3000 and W3000, is the D3000 generally better?
I don't think there is any significant difference when it comes to the quality of video processing between the D3000 and W3000, but because the D3000 has a panel of lower resolution, the results will look better if you feed it with a standard definition signal (less video processing power is required to scale 576i to 1368x768 than to 1920x1080).
Because you've used them both and the W2000 was so highly praised, would you recommend the W3000 above the W2000?
W3000 has better blacks, more accurate colours, 1 extra HDMI and 1 extra component inputs, and can accept 1080p/24 smoothly. Only you yourself can decide if these improvements are worth the extra money.
Do you need different settings for HDMI input and Scart input? I'm using digital television via scart and will connect a PS3, so that's why i wonder about the settings.
Ideally you should calibrate each input for its own settings (the Sony can save them independently), but because I don't own any Scart devices and I'm rushed for time I only calibrated for HDMI.
This may be a silly question, but has anyone offered to buy this TV from you yet?
Hi, the review sample was a generous loan from a local retailer, and has gone back to them.
However, I am missing some comments on the sound from the KDL-40W3000, can you include this is in your review.
Thanks in advance
The W3000 onboard speakers are adequate for daily use, but won't match up to dedicated home theatre speakers for critical viewing. Ranking-wise, the sound is behind the Pioneer 4280XD and Samsung F96, but can pretty much hold its own against other models (that I've reviewed).
