Sony KLV-L32M1 review

 

Stand back for something truly lovely in LCD

Sony's Wega Engine processing (AKA The Force!) works its magic again, only this time at a genuinely affordable price point

My experience using this product I spent a lot of time looking at different TV's when finally deciding on this on. Being a TV novice, I didn't really know what to look for at the time. In retrospect, I have a better idea of what I would look ...

Sony 32" LCD - Wow

 

I did a review of current models when my old RCA died - and wanted to go with a bigger screen but not a giant. My chairs are about 7 feet from the set so the recommendations were about 32 in. I also compared LCD vs PLASMA sets and opted for the LCD ...

Very easy to set up - has 4 screen size options -

best on the market

 

I bought this tv at Circuit City for $1599 in Febuary 2005. I already had a pretty new Panasonic 27" standard CRT set which was nice, it was simply to big and bulky for my room. I always wanted to get a flat panel LCD HDTV with widescreen for years but...

AMAZING PICTURE, great sound, nice design, nice remote

Finally found MY television!

 

Absolute highest picture quality! No degree of separation 3-dimensionally, no glare, no ghosting!

Finally found MY television!
