A cracking 32-inch TV ideal for a bedroom or small living room

Great picture quality ; Very pretty design ; Good features and connectivity

Sony KDL32W706BSU W7 Series

 

It looks good in a modern setting. The picture quality is very good. There is a wide range of options available. Now I just need to master how to use them.

The sound volume varies widely from channel to channel. It is rather complicated to use if you are not using it every day.

Styling; the TV has a 'white' screen edge which I like as it different to most others (black)

Picture quality great

Too small for a 32 inch was shocked how small it. Ease of use could have been a lot better.
