Sony KDL-32R400A


If you're looking for a small TV for a bedroom or game room, it can be tempting to simply buy the cheapest thing you can find, but it's worth shopping around a little. While some people would discount Sony for being unnecessarily expensive, the...

The Sony KDL-32R400A has solid black levels, shadow detail, and color saturation for a small, budget TV; it handles 1080p/24 properly; it has very good sound quality for a TV of this size; and its design is sleek and modern.

Its so-called 120Hz refresh rate does almost nothing to improve picture quality; it has more blurring than competing sets; inaccurate colors and sparse features.

The Sony KDL-32R400A is the closest you'll get to a jack-of-all-trades performer in a 32-inch television.

Sony KDL-32R400A


A solid choice for a second or third low-cost HDTV, Sony's 32R400A compensates for a less-than-perfect picture with a wide viewing angle and a relatively low price.

Inexpensive. Good viewing angles. 120Hz refresh rate

Dull colors. Muddled shadow details

The Sony 32R400A is an LED-backlit 720p set that doesn't try to be anything other than a simple 32-inch HDTV. It doesn't have Web apps, it doesn't have 3D, and it doesn't have any other functions that make it useable without plugging in a cable,...

With great color production and sluggish motion response, the R400A is fantastically mediocre.

The Sony KDL-32R400A is the closest you'll get to a jack-of-all-trades performer in a 32-inch television.

Sleek and modern design ; Solid black levels and shadow detail ; Good sound quality

100Hz mode does nothing for picture quality ; Inaccurate colours ; Sparse feature set

"Wanted to love this Sony TV ... very disappointed."


In looking for a smaller TV, I first bought a Samsung UN32EH5300F Smart TV. It's image quality and features were great. But, to my dismay, I found that it was not compatible with mirroring my Apple devices which was important to me so I returned it for...

Given my high expectations of a Sony product, I'm hard pressed to come up with a Pro for this TV. The sound was okay. It does apparently work with AppleTV

This TV has a very cheap feel to it as compared to the Samsung I tried. The remote is poorly designed and constructed. The picture quality lacks sharpness. The 720P doesn't cut the mustard in this case. The menus are scant and awkward to navigate.

A new tv huh?


It is a decent tv to purchase if you just need something decent for a split laptop or desktop display for gaming or visual tech based needs. I'd say its pretty nice in all directions, except for that red dot of course.....

It came with two hdmi ports and it was simple to grasp onto with its settings and altering it to specific visual and audio needs

There is a constant red dot on the screen that is barely noticeable but when the screen goes black between commercials or game loading times its fairly noticeable

Poor Referb



I don't know how they check for defects. But this just didn't have any picture. Kind of annoyed, I think it was just repackaged and shipped out another door
