The Sony has a correct and well-calibrated image quality, but you have to do with a limited native contrast that is suitable for daytime viewing; forget about home theater programs in the dark.
Sony remains anchored in its technological choices and decides to equip its new television set with it. 
The Sony television set displays a HD resolution. This resolution is clearly better than what is generally done.
In addition, with a screen of 40 inches, the KLV-40R252F is at the bottom of its range.In the end, it is interesting to note that beyond the size, the screen is well made. A point to add when choosing between this model and other competitors.
Designed with a frequency of 60 Hz, we’re looking at a high-end TV. Perfect image and exceptional synchronization in game or movie mode.
Finally, Sony has chosen to put advanced technology on this TV, which makes it possible to have an HD image quality .
My opinion to conclude on the display part. It’s in the range, without flourish or excess. An additional choice in the mid-range.

KLV-40R252F from Sony – The sound

A brief listening allows us to see that it does not work miracles. The sound is far from exceptional. That’s enough for TV shows, but not for home theater showings.
In terms of sound equipment, the TV is equipped with two baffles with 10 W at output.

In short, the sound is enough to cover your everyday needs. The KLV-40R252F Sony is not designed for home cinema. That’s not what we are expecting.

Our conclusion on the Sony KLV-40R252F

In conclusion, the Sony KLV-40R252F is a mid-range television set of good quality. Average in most areas, it is nevertheless a wise choice for consumers who want to have a well-made product.
To say the least, it’s complicated for a manufacturer to offer a model without smartTV. There are some among the competition, and at the same price. By choosing this KLV-40R252F you know where you stand.
This TV has the correct resolution, nothing more. Producing and marketing TVs today in HD is often sufficient and well suited for ‘basic’ uses. But this standard will certainly be outdated in a few years’ time. It is therefore a temporary and/or occasional choice. You’ve been warned.

In short, many positive points that make this TV a very good product. The following 3 points should be remembered:
the display frequency, the screen size, the sound power.
