Sony Bravia KDL-32EX520


If you're looking for an internet-ready, 32-inch LED-edgelit HDTV, you can't go wrong with the Sony KDL-32EX520 (MSRP $629). It has solid performance across the board and a robust — if somewhat clumsy — set of online features. If you don't need the...

The Sony KDL-32EX520 almost has it all: great contrast and color, internet connectivity and a solid complement of features. It lags in motion performance, however, and has some other minor faults. We were impressed by the Sony’s high contrast ratio,...

Sony KDL-32EX520 Review – 32-inch LED LCD HDTV


For those of you interested in buying a second TV for the house, this 32-inch model can be an ideal choice. This is just the right size to fit into your office or kid's dorm. You will obviously be on the search of a larger display for your living room....

Sony has made this set Wi-Fi ready too and you only need to buy an adapter to get Internet without wires. You can then stream all the movies, music, videos and photos that you want from both the Internet and the PC in your home. The Ethernet port also...

The Sony BRAVIA EX520 replaces the BRAVIA EX500 series that was released in early 2010. It's got all the same features and will likely have similar pi...

It's got all the streaming Internet features of the best Sony TVs

No 3D, no dynamic LED backlighting, Wi-Fi is optional

We think the Sony BRAVIA EX520 will be a popular cheap LED TV. It doesn't have any superfluous 3D features or built-in Wi-Fi, so for anyone just looking for a simple Sony TV it'll hopefully be a good choice. We are impressed by the inclusion of Sony...

Sony Bravia KDL46EX520


The Sony Bravia KDL46EX520 offers several of the features of the high-end Bravias — TrackID, Skype and IPTV — but should come in at a much more reasonable price.

The Sony Bravia KDL46EX520 will be available in March 2011, though the price is yet to be announced. Get a wriggle on folks!

Thank you superuser


The comments made by superuser are absolutely true. Sony is a big let down now, be it Tv or music systems. I had recently bought Sony bravia and a music system, both were faulty pieces. All my complaints to sony have fallen on deaf years. So every body...
