Sony Bravia KDL32EX403U Review

Sony Bravia KDL32EX403U - Television Review

The Sony Bravia 32ex403u is a brilliant television and is one of the best 32 inch TVs or televisions on the market at a price suitable for the average consumer. I am the proud owner of one of these TVs myself and must say I am very impressed with it and it lives in my bedroom and is just the right size. The Sony Bravia 32ex403 also has many good features like built in Freeview HD, Internet TV for services like BBC Iplayer, Youtube and LOVEfilm subscriptions among others, USB ports for easy access to your media (photos, videos and music), brilliant HD picture and a good SD mode, great menu system inspired by PS3 and more! I am not sure if this product is available in the US but I will feature a couple of similar Bravia 32 inch TVs for them too. It is definitely available in the UK though.

Why Buy This Sony Bravia TV?

There is so much going for this television it is unbelievable. I bought this TV because at the price it was for and quite a bit higher than that it was the best 32 inch television, basically it was the best 32 inch TV at the price I was going to pay (up to about £450) and it was also on a good deal. Also very attractive are the excellent features this TV has including:

  • Full HD 1080p - the best picture quality at the moment, this TV has 1080 horizontal lines of pixels on the screen compared to 768 for HD ready and 576 for SD. This means there is more detail and means a better picture. This format is used for Blu-ray, and game consoles like the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3.
  • Built in Freeview HD - take advantage of the ultimate HD with Freeview HD offering instant access to lots of free to air channels like BBC 3, radio channels with no subscription fees as well as HD channels like BBC HD, BBC 1 HD, ITV 1 HD, 4HD with no costs!
  • Internet through your TV to your favourite services like Iplayer and Lovefilm as well as Youtube and more. (This is brilliant but if you want a wireless connection you need a special Sony dongle which is expensive BUT there are ways around this and wired connections need no extras!
  • Experience TV, movies and video games in Full 1080p HD
  • Enjoy media with HDMI and USB

The menu system is also very sleek as is the TV itself. The picture looks brilliant and I can't wait till Freeview HD will be available in my area.

I also have used this online for my Xbox 360 playing games like Halo Reach and Fifa 11 and it looks amazing and there is no lag at all on the TV while the colours are vivid and sharp.

There is also a SONY Blu-ray player connected up which also looks brilliant and a Sony sound system. Even the remote control is better than most TVs with a clever design and looks very sleek with a handy ON OFF button on the back and hidden batteries.

As you can see, there is a lot of good things about this television and there are very few negatives but as this is a fair and honest review I have listed them below as well!

As this is an honest review I will also discuss some negatives about this television or at least things that could have been included although there are few as this really is a great TV! First the user manuals are a bit rubbish that come on paper but there are more detailed versions on the television when set up.  

Also the internet TV feature is very neat and awesome one set up but if you want it to work with a wireless connection you need to buy an overpriced dongle which is about £70 BUT you can also used a wired connection, or do what I do which is buy something called homeplugs which are relatively cheap and can be used with anything like on my Xbox so I did not have to buy Microsoft's Xbox router or one for my Blu-ray player and this is what I recommend.  I will be writing a HubPage or two in more detail about homeplugs but in short I recommend them and this solve this problem.  But you can also use a wired connection or just pay up!

I have no other main issues with the TV and basically it works brilliantly but don't go expecting 3D is what I am trying to say if you are paying less than £500 for a TV. If you are looking for a 32 inch LCD tv with 1080p, Freeview HD and Internet TV look no further and why not read some reviews on Amazon and see the current price from one of the links above!

What the TV looks like



The Sony Bravia KDL 32EX403U really is an excellent Television and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a brilliant 32 inch TV who lives in the UK and wants a reasonable price. There are no real bad negatives (the manuals could be improved and the internet TV setup is a little fiddly) and there are some excellent features like Freeview HD, 1080p, DLNA, good for gaming, Internet TV, brilliant picture quality and more.  I own one and impressed with it and recommend one to you.  It is high quality and great value for money.
