Sony's gigantic TV offers an enormous picture and excellent feature set, with versatile multimedia entertainment. Movies impress thoroughly in bright conditions, but fast movements blur a little, especially in sports broadcasts.

This Sony Bravia LCD TV has good picture quality, but faces stiff competition from cheaper brands

 

If you're looking for a mid-size LCD television, Sony's Bravia KDL32W5500 is king of the bunch. It comes with a higher price tag than we would have liked, but if you want the pedigree you'll have to pay for it.

Good contrast and motion control, modern design, good scaling

Expensive for a 32in panel

SD can be treated poorly

A good all-round 37" LCD TV but not quite the refined experience we have come to expect from Sony

Very good pictures ; Good all-round specification

Sony have packed the features into this 32" HDTV

Sony Bravia KDL-46W5500 television review

 

Internet TV is here, but is it worth upgrading to? Panasonic and Samsung have already redefined what a HDTV can do with a broadband connection, and their VieraCast and Internet@TV platforms, respectively, are now joined by Sony's effort: AppliCast. A...

Clarity of HD, sound, four HDMI inputs

Freeview pictures, limited value of AppliCast, USB lacks wide file support

If a diet of high-def TV, gaming and Blu-ray is on the cards - and you like the idea of AppliCast - the KDL-46W5500 is definitely worth an audition
