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...

A true reflection of SOny quality.


I typically don't write reviews unless I sincerely believe in a product. I can't give this one a 5 star for one simple reason. I assume most 32 inch tv's are mounted on the wall. I purchased this as a bedroom tv. The dvd slot is on the right hand side,...
