The future of high-definition viewing arrives, but at a high price.

Great hi-def pictures ; Good connectivity

Quite expensive

Excellent hi-def pictures, despite the comparatively high price for this 32in TV

Sony Bravia KDL-32D3000 LCD TV


The latest Bravias are certainly packed with features, but is the KDL-32D3000 punching above its size..?

The TV adverts may be impressive but can Sony's mid-range 32in Bravia match up to the marketing department's hype?

Extensively specified, well-made, easy to use and live with, and a sharp-looking, punchy performer – this 32in Sony is among the best out there

Sony KDL-32D3000


Another welcome improvement is the provision of three HDMIs - especially as all these HDMIs are of the v1.3 type necessary for compatibility with such 'next-gen' features as automatic lip-synch correction and the picture-boosting Deep Color system.A...

Good colours, impressive black levels, great connectivity, bags of features

Slightly expensive, motion portrayal not as good as that of its Philips rival

Sony KDL-32D3000


Well, it's about time. Sony has tried to keep us quiet with a range of 'Bravia v1.5' models in recent months, but we've really been chomping at the bit to get our hands on its new LCD TVs proper. And that day has now arrived

1080p/24fps capability, Impressive features, Good all round picture performance

Some issues with motion handling

The first of Sony's true 'next generation' Bravias is here.
