Sony KDL-40EX524 review


Sony was an early exponent of net-connected TV. While its rivals were fumbling through the adolescent stages of internet connectivity, the Japanese major already had a mature IPTV portal on the go in the shape of its BRAVIA Internet Video (BIV) service.

Feature-rich BRAVIA Internet Video portal; design; USB recording; new user interface

Poor motion picture resolution; no support for MKV files

Sony KDL-37EX524 - Pocket-lint


Another measured attempt by Sony, this time in the increasingly rare, but popular with consumers, 37-inch size. It sits slap bang in the middle of the

BBC iPlayer, Lovefilm & Demand 5, Freeview HD, excellent EPG, good upscaling, iPhone app, black levels

Long-winded GUI, Wi-Fi is a pricey add-on, lacks Full HD detail, some motion blur

Great for movies though lacking the brightness of rival brands' Edge LED-backlit offerings, Sony's 37-incher piles on the features. A lush Freeview HD treatment, awesome online goodies, and a nice price are set against some onscreen blur, and a lack of...

Sony KDL-37EX524 review


The fast-disappearing 37-inch category gets a shot in the arm courtesy of this Sony model

Good price ; Mostly excellent 'smart TV' features ; Superb black levels for an edge LED TV

Resolution loss with motion ; Images aren't especially bright by edge LED standards ; The set's build quality isn't the best

Not so long ago, 37-inch TVs were the most popular size in Britain. In 2011, though, they seem to be a dying breed, with fewer and fewer models finding their way into TV ranges. Sony, for instance, only has two 37-inch TVs in its latest range,...

Sony KDL-32EX524 review


Don't let the size or price fool you – this TV is packed with clever features and delivers decent pictures

Lots of features ; Revamped onscreen menus ; Freeview HD ; Excellent web video quality ; USB recording ; Skype and smartphone control

Motion blur ; Pricey peripherals ; Contrast could be better ; Slightly plasticky build ; Couldn't stream music

Sony's KDL-32EX524 is described as a 'great all-rounder' and 'family friendly'. This is normally a euphemistic way of saying that there aren't many flashy features on board – but that's not the case with this impressively specified little TV.

If net connectivity is this year's hot TV ticket, Sony's affordable EX-range is smokin'

Sony KDL-37EX524


Sony's KDL-37EX524 does rather more in feature and performance terms than you might expect for its money.

Decent value ; Excellent online services ; Mostly good picture quality

Motion blur ; Best picture settings lack brightness ; Operating system needs work

We should add that Sony’s online features also include Facebook, Twitter, Skype (if you add an optional camera), and an open Web browser. Though the text on this browser is so small that it makes the feature all but unusable in our opinion.

Sony KDL-32EX524


Although it's no classic, Sony's entry-level 32in LED TV combines solid pictures with excellent multimedia skills to enjoyable effect.

Good value ; Class-leading online service ; Good all-round picture quality

Operating system not great ; Minor motion blur ; Not the brightest picture

Minor motion blur and a slight lack of brightness once it’s been set up to produce its best contrast performance stop the 32EX524 from being a total star. But it’s certainly worth adding to any affordable 32in audition list, especially if you're...

Sony KDL-40EX524


Internet TV and Qriocity service, natural colours, clean images, excellent HD tuner

No 3D, motion could be better, off-axis viewing isn’t perfect

Solid performance at a decent price – but you don’t have to look far to get more

Sony Bravia KDL-40EX524 LED HD TV Review


The Sony Bravia KDL-40EX524 is a great Internet connected HD TV with great IPTV features but you'll not be getting the best Sony has to offer in terms of picture quality technology at this level. What you do get though, is a superbly designed,...

Smart TV and new IPTV interface, design and build, connectivity, price

The lack of picture quality finessing (no MontionFlow for example) means fast moving pictures can be a tad blurry and the audio output leaves something to be desired
