Sony KDL-32EX40B Review – 32-inch LCD HDTV

 

Though Sony is not the only manufacturer to include an integrated Blu-ray disc player, it would definitely attract buyers with its brand name. Sony presented its 3D ready HDTV with such humdrums that it literally didn't pay attention to the low-end...

Full HD 1080p resolution also ensures sharper and more vibrant images. Also it reduces visual noise and enhances color details. Though one can find almost all the features of a regular Bravia HDTV, Sony KDL-32EX40B is a step ahead from those. And for...

Sony KDL-40EX40B Review – 40-inch LCD HDTV

 

Sony gets quite a few eyeballs moving with its new series that comes with an in built Blu-ray player. Sony KDL-40EX40B boasts of being a two-in-one device. It is great news for those who do not own a Blu-ray disc Player. Though if you buy a Bravia TV...

The Bravia engine 3 and Bravia sync features make sure Sony KDL-40EX40B provides high definition better and sharper images and makes operation easy with one universal remote. The other Bravia features that make it pretty interesting are the ambient...

Perfect bedroom TV

 

For the price, a great set for the bedroom or small family-room. HDMI, 1080p and built in blu-ray make for a very good value, especially when on sale. Internet content looks great (Netflix, Hulu Plus, Podcasts, Youtube, etc...) Myself and my parents...

1080p nice picture with all the same adjustments as the bigger more expensive models, light sensor, lots of input options and network connectivity with blu-ray to boot

Wi-Fi connectivity requires expensive "proprietary" USB dongle. Small system stability problem

Undecided

 

Controller is hard to use and frequently doesn't get the intended results. It doesn't seem to have much range or requires a true alignment to work. Picture quality is okay, but nothing to write home about. I haven't tried the DVD player yet.

Bravia Blu-Ray is unstable

 

When it's working, it's great. On my second set in 30-days. SONY did stand behind their warranty. Had to clear the memory on the 2nd set four times by returning it back to factory default settings. Also had to update the TV & Blu-Ray firmware. It's...

Problems at First but Resolved

 

Bottom line here is that the product is good. However, only after signficant grief and calls with Sony. The TV I received arrived in good shape. I hooked it up and used a wired lan connection through a Linksys Wireless N Gaming Port. I use this for my...
