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,...

Consumer review by:

Outstanding Product with awesome features.


This full hd tv is best among all other 32 inches available products of different brands bcoz of its stunning picture quality and features. I had an oppurtunity to compare it with almost all 32 inches available products of different brands like LG,SAMSUN

Nothing except slight/marginally little (as i had to post some drawbacks which isn't there) discolouration when viewed from side angle

Consumer review by:

Great picture quality,excellent for Blu Ray Movies


Excellent buy with good picture quality especially playing Blu Ray Discs.

Picture quality very good for the price as the Black Levels far better than I expected performed well with Tron Legacy,The Dark Knight ; Power Saving features include presence detector and choice of presets when to turn unit to standby if no viewer is wa

Internet access is slow as the remote has no dedicated keys to navigate menu to watch Internet content, but for the price this is expected but Internet access is available yet it is not worth the slow manner to use the Remote Control ; Keys are very smal

Consumer review by:

Great picture, no cord, no sound.


I currently have sound going directly from the cable box to our book-shelf stereo, and I am sure I would get "used" to the remote, if I wasnt going to return this unit for its other flaws. And BTW, the review I did on the Sony web site got deleted. ......

Great picture

Seriously, no communication cord? I had to drive back to town and buy a cord so I could get this set to work. Unbelievable to sell the higher end and not include an HDMI cord. Finally got it running, and there is no sound. I messed with this unit for over
