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 Bravia KDL-32D3000 review


It's fair to say that Sony hasn't done things by halves with the Bravia KDL-32D3000, its latest 32-inch TV. It really seems to have left no stone unturned in its quest for picture perfection. But ironically we're left feeling Sony might have been...

Huge feature count ; Three HDMI 1.3 sockets ; Mostly excellent pictures

Rather expensive ; We're not convinced a 32-inch TV really needs so much costly tech

But with the Sony Bravia KDL-32D3000, the simple fact is that while the TV is certainly very good, it's just too small to really benefit from some of the features it's making you pay good money for

Sony BRAVIA KDL-40D3000


For every square centimeter of its impressively-sized screen, the Sony BRAVIA KDL-40D3000 uses a mere 0.0395 Watt of power in operation, with the possibility of reducing energy consumption still further by activating the power-saving light sensor that...

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.

Sony KDL32D3000 Review - 32" Bravia 100Hz LCD TV Test


It can be argued that Sony probably did more than any other LCD manufacturers in turning the tide against plasma TVs in the fiercely contested 40-to-42-inch segment of the flat panel market. Besides devising and executing an ingenious propaganda...
