Stunning piece of kit, great design too!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sony KDL32W654 32-inch Widescreen 1080p Full HD LED Smart TV with Freeview HD Silver (New for 2013) (Electronics)
I bought this because it offered the best range of features for the price, and was a great looking design too.
I've been very impressed so far. The screen is excellent and is great for 1080p gaming or blue ray films. The contrast it also exceptionally good - the blacks are very deep; none of that backlit LCD 'glow' of old.
The internet functionality is great too. It's best to have the TV wired via ethernet if you can - the wifi is a little slow by comparison but still works a treat. The applications are great too. I've used Netflix on it a great deal and the interface is really good. Youtube is also great since you can pair the TV with you laptop or phone and 'throw' videos from these devices to the TV; a great party trick and actually very useful.
The sound is pretty good too - better than many of its competitors although a sound bar or 2.1 system would be helpful to reach a more dynamic range.
Since owning it, Sony has released 2 or 3 updates for its operating system. All have been helpful and glitch free and show that Sony have an eye on continual product improvement rather than just leaving it in its 'as launch' specification.
One point that I'd raise is that the stand that it comes with does not have a tilt or rotate functionality - they are just legs for the TV so you'll need to make sure that the table you sit it on (in my case) is a suitable height for your viewing.
All in all a very good product that I have qualms in recommending.
