Sony KDL-32CX523 review

 

Sony is back with one of its first offerings for 2011, and it's a budget belter. Lacking any kind of upmarket panel tech, you'll have to make do with regular LCD (no sign of any LED backlighting here), but elsewhere there are plenty of features to wow...

Sony's KDL-32CX523 does more in both feature and performance terms than you've any right to expect for its money.

Great value ; Excellent online services ; Good pictures for the money

Uninspiring build quality ; A little motion blur ; Not particularly easy to use

The 32CX523 might lack the ‘sexiness' in design and technology terms of an edge LED TV, but its CCFL LCD engine and excellent online features still make it a superbly good value second or even main room TV.
