Sony Bravia KDL-32BX420

 

By this time next year companies like Sony might not even sell TVs like the KDL-BX420 series. The CCFL (cold-cathode fluorescent) backlight that illuminates this TV's LCD panel is slowly going extinct, replaced especially in larger screen sizes by LEDs...

The inexpensive Sony KDL-BX420 series evinced good performance for an entry-level non-LED-TV, with deep-enough black levels and accurate color in mid-bright areas. It also, surprisingly for a 60Hz TV, handled 1080p/24 cadence properly, and its matte...

The BX420 only has two HDMI inputs when most of its competitors have three or four. Its color was too blue in dark areas and too red in bright areas and its screen showed brighter corners

If you don't expect the world from the entry-level Sony KDL-BX420 LCD, its picture quality may be a pleasant surprise.

Sony Bravia KDL-32BX420

 

Sony BX420 series information: This review is based on our hands-on experience with the 32-inch KDL-32BX420 TV. However, our observations also apply to the two other sizes in Sony's BX420 series of LED TVs, including the 40-inch KDL-40BX420 and 46-inch...

Solid picture performance ; Light, easy to set up ; Customizable picture presets ; Decent sound

No Internet or network features ; Thicker bezel than some ; Less than perfect blacks

Sony sticks to its guns with the KDL-32BX420 by focusing on a superior picture, decent sound and a user-friendly interface in an attractive package.

Sony KDL-32BX420 Review – 32-inch LCD HDTV

 

It is a fact that no matter how much you aspire for a huge TV with the latest features to flaunt in your living room, you will also need a basic TV to keep in places where you are not likely to watch TV for long hours. You might want to catch up on the...

Connectivity is alright but maybe you would have felt happier with more HDMI. Although the TV promises 5 HD inputs, yet it includes only 2 HDMI. This won’t pose a problem if you keep this TV in your office and watch only news and weather channels. But...

Best value 32-inch LCD TV

 

Considering the cost, critics are pretty impressed by the picture quality of the Sony KDL-BX420 series. The 32-inch KDL-32BX420 is the smallest set in the series, which also includes the 40-inch KDL-40BX420 (*Est. $585) and the 46-inch...

Excellent picture quality, deep black levels, good value

Few features, limited connectivity, uniformity could be better

"Not as satisfied as the rest."

 

This TV is only a couple of days old and requires repair. After having used for the first time I have an issue where in order to get the screen to come on after hitting the power, i have to "hit" the back of the TV to get the picture to set. What is...

Had a port for computer hook up and extra RCAs.

Only two HDMI connections (luckily that's all I need for now).

Sony Bravia KDL-32BX420

 

I had been looking at Vizio and Sony and decided to go with the 32BX420 because it seemed to have a few more features for the money. The first one I received had 3 rows of pixels that were brighter than the rest of the screen, so I sent it back for a...

"Easiest Installation Yet ! Just right for the bedroom"

 

This TV is used with Satellite Feed, using the cheapest service and set top box. In other words, RCA Plugs only. The only other device is a displaced DVD Player from the Liivng Room; where I have finally installed a Blu-Ray Player. I have used an old...

Picture Sizes, Display Ratios, Decent Audio, Light Weight, Image Clarity, Connectivity includes all of those Cables you have been collecting over the years. This set is a 1080p upgrade that replaces a 720p Sony 26" which has gone to the office for use as

All inclusive connectivity makes this model appealing to those who, like me, object to the price gouging found in Cables on the shelf. A plethora of flat panel offerings by Sony and its peers seems to make the idea of "something for everyone" appear to be

My First HDTV and I'm loving it

 

My wife and I received this as a present and we're loving it. This is our first HDTV and Blu-Rays look amazing as well as my XBox 360. The only con is that I wish there were at least 2 more HDMI inputs. I have seen thinner tvs but going from our huge...

1. Very clean resolution with Blu-Ray ; 2. Very clean resolution with XBox 360 ; 3. Decent out of the box sound ; 4. Decent price for what you get

Only two HDMI inputs
