First Look: Sony 32-inch offers good value

1:09 /

The Sony KDL-32R400A is a value-for-money small TV with modern design and acceptable image quality.

Hi. I'm Ty Pendlebury and this is a look at the Sony KDL-32R400 television. If you're looking for a cheap TV for bedroom or games room, then the new 32-inch Sony R400 is a very good choice. It could be found for under $300 on the street and yet it doesn't look like a cheap TV. It features modern looks with a slim bezel and compact size. It doesn't perform like a cheap TV either, with very good blacks and shadow detail as well. Meaning, it doesn't look terrible when you switch the lights off. Also, sound quality is very good whether you're listening to music or watching a movie, you probably won't wish you had a stereo system hooked up to it. This TV doesn't come with many features though, a USB media player is above it and there's only 2 HDMI ports. Color on the other hand is okay for wall skin tones and blues look good. It's secondary tones like yellows look very inaccurate. In all the Sony R400 is cheap, it's pictures [unk] and it has good sound. And when you're paying so little for it, what more can you ask for? This has been Ty Pendlebury for CNET.com.
