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 review


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 company's impressive, and popular, Essential EX range.

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. This budget TV certainly punches above its weight

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

Sony's 37EX524 is a solid enough performer with unusually cinematic pictures thanks to an excellent black level response performance that humbles many much more expensive edge LED TVs. However, ultimately some motion resolution issues and a slightly...

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

See past the picture flaws and missing features and the KDL-32EX524 is a very attractive LCD that punches above its price point with a generous array of features and decent picture performance, which should make you, and the whole family, very happy.

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

Sony KDL-32EX524 review


There's plenty to like about the 32-inch Sony KDL-32EX524, including its warm pictures, good selection of Internet video services and stylish design. However, it's let down slightly by below-par contrast performance and some issues with motion blur.

Warm colours ; Good upscaling of standard-definition channels ; Stylish design ; Good connectivity

Motion blur ; Contrast performance could be better

The Sony KDL-32EX524 certainly isn't without its flaws. Motion handling could be better and we would have liked to have seen more contrast in its pictures.

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 Bravia KDL-40EX524 review


The 40-inch Sony Bravia KDL-40EX524 is a decent-enough LED TV. Unfortunately, while it offers excellent Internet features and generally good picture quality, it's let down by its lacklustre audio, backlight inconsistencies and motion blur.

Vivid and engaging colours ; Impressive contrast performance ; Excellent Internet features

Inconsistent backlight ; Gutless audio ; Doesn't support MKV streaming ; Motion blur

The Bravia KDL-40EX524 is a decent-enough TV, but it doesn't offer as good value for money as some of Sony's other recent budget and mid-range models. It excels when it comes to Internet features and its overall picture quality is of a high...
