Sony Bravia KDL-32E5500 review


Sony gets the designer TV bug with this 32", but we're not buying it

Eye-catching design ; Good picture quality ; Plenty of features

Too expensive ; The design won't be to everyone's taste ; Some motion blur ; Occasional image 'glow'

A good performer with an innovative design, but it's far too dear given what's on offer for less

Just how much extra would you pay for a TV that looked like a picture frame?

Sony KDL-32E5500


Excellent pictures and sound quality, but this screen isn't so good that it can justify its hefty price-tag

Fine contrast ; deep blacks ; excellent all-round resolution ; slick with motion ; sounds good by flatscreen standards

Looks could be too extrovert for some ; hefty price-tag

Sony Bravia KDL-32E5500


Easy to use and navigate between inputs. Simple controls, clear picture and good sound quality and volume

Not so much bad but would have liked it to have card reader slots for camera memory cards or at lease the software to read a usb attached reader

Sony Bravia KDL-32E5500


We particularily like the color of the body of the set. So many are block now but this model has a whit 'picture frame' appearance

Some of the images on the remote control are rather small & tend to look similar
