At first I was afraid to buy this 32-inch Sony Bravia HDTV set since it is not 1080. I have to admit that for its size you don’t need to spend any more money on 1080. Leave that to your larger sets 40″ and above. Out of the box and watching digital TV in less than 15 min. I mean it couldn’t be easier.
Out of the box, on the stand, 3 screws, power cord, and connect to an antenna or source. Turn on the power; confirm your language choice and the system starts scanning for analog and digital channels. All that was the easy part. Now for the hard part. Tearing yourself away from the awesome Sony Bravia HD picture from over the air broadcasts. You’ll say to yourself, wow what a deal!!! Picture is great out of the box.
I might make a few changes but this is great. I highly recommend this size set for the bedroom or someplace that its size is right. Sitting in bed it is the perfect size. In addition, Sony has continued to place the controls on the remote in their standard places, so for me there was no learning. I’m pleased with everything about this KDL-32L4000 HDTV.
Great picture and very decent sound. I’m not a video “connoisseur” but I’ve learned you get addicted pretty quickly to HD channels! Everything just worked out of the box and the operation, menu system, etc. is very easy to use and straightforward . It’s a very attractive unit that is gratefully lacking the “piano black” finish that just about every other HDTV has these days.The matte finish is much more elegant.
I have HDTV cable connected via HDMI, Apple TV and DVD connected via component cable. All sources work and look great and everything has worked fine.
