Sony KDL-20S2030 review

 

This 20in shows that hi-def TV isn't the sole province of large-screen TVs

Generous array of features ; Exceptional hi-def performance

Relatively expensive ; Some noise in larger patches of colour

Expensive, but great pictures and plenty of sockets make it worth the asking price

Sony KDL-20S2030

 

Sony's Bravias have carved a name for themselves, but they have yet to become established as small screen saviours. That's about to change. This 20in LCD TV is not only HD Ready, but it also provides benchmark picture quality

Surprisingly good picture quality, Excellent sound, Good overall performance

Some traces of noise

Performs much better than you'd expect at this price and screen size. Another Bravia winner from Sony

Sony KDL20S2030

 

Steady, clear picture on digital with excellent contrast and highlights. Sound fairly rich and detailed, but rather two-dimensional; needs external speakers for best effect. Good reception and clarity on digital radio stations ( a pleasant bonus when...

Rear a/v connections can be fiddly. Analogue picture can be slightly 'wet' and smeary, not great on sports. Menu not the easiest.
