Sony KDL-32EX653


Style and performance as a basic TV is very good

The remote control is poor-the double ring of controls is extremely awkward and leads to numerous mistakes for even average size fingers.Previous controls have not had this problem ; The internet related features are a waste of time if you already have...

Sony KDL-32EX653


Picture quality, especially in HD

Program guide and internet services readout & service logos (BBC iPlayer etc) are far too small and very difficult to read. There should be an option to increase the size of the font/logos etc

Sony KDL-32EX653


Picture quality is excellent. Energy consumption is good and connectivity works well

The main issue we have is the digital guide keeps missing information , so some program information is missing. In general the menu navigation is very laggy. The Sony entertainment network does not include a lot of easily available service e.g. 4OD
