Curiously charming for an entry-level unit
The Sony Bravia KDL-32R400A (MSRP $330) was one of those really disappointing TVs to review, because it came so close to being excellent. The contrast ratio and color quality I tested were well beyond the expected level of performance when dealing with entry-level, but egregious motion and viewing problems really count this TV out.
While it's not a theater shoe-in, a Kuro killer, or even a smart graduation present, the R400A is not without an audience.
As always, LG delivers!
LG has come through again! I already have a 42" LCD HDTV and wanted a smaller one for my "man cave". Of course I ordered from Amazon and it arrived right on time, as always is the case with Amazon. This 32" model delivers a HD picture using the entire screen. LG's are the easiest on the market to set up every single adjustment you might want to make. This one is a little newer, and has even more adjustments.
This is great tv all around
I bought this tv to use with a Playstation 3 mostly but also as a regular tv and secondary monitor for my Macbook Pro. The 240Hz really made difference in gaming, movement is much realistic than a 60Hz tv. This tv also works great as a computer monitor. Being a web developer and designer, I am very picky about my display and this works great for graphics and coding. This is my fourth Toshiba tv in about 20 years, they all still work great and I have never had a problem with them.
For the price, great picture quality
The Toshiba L2300U series may be entry-level, but its picture quality is not. It seems like Toshiba has taken pains to avoid trapping consumers in a feature fight: "This one is 3D but not smart, this one is both, this one feeds your dog, this one is 3D but doesn't come in 1080p," etc. The L2300U doesn't do anything extra except play back USB content. Its on-board software is basic, and cheap. The design? Also cheap.
Love it, Cystal Clear Screen, Easy Set up
Received this Sony 42" LED HDTV last week and I already own the 32" LED HDTV 1080p so I knew it would be just as great. Well it is better than I hoped it would be. Set up was super easy. The screen is sharper than my 32" size. You can watch this TV in a dark room and it adjusts to its environment. Same with a bright light on. From every angle you can see this TV clearly. This is in our living room. Perfect size. Highly Recommend this TV.
Great TV at an excellent price!
All in all I am very happy with this TV. I specifically wanted to get a "non smart TV" for the fact that I already have all of the apps and functionality I need with my XBox, PS3, and Apple TV. I was really happy to find such a high quality TV without all the frills. I was more than happy to pay a couple hundred dollars less for a quality TV set without the "smart" capability. The fact that it has 3d capability was a really nice extra that seemed almost "free" considering the price tag.
The TV screen displays colors very natural.
The Philips 55PFL3907/F7 supports all the latest technical bells and whistles. The picture quality is very good from my point of view. The sound is ok for such a slim device. The looks are very smart just mounted on the wall. It has not disappointed me in any way, so I speak from a buy recommendation.
Needs a sound boost
I needed to replace my old 19" CRT TV (yes really) because my cable company got rid of all analog channels and I hated having to turn on devices just to check the weather.
I couldn't find any reviews anywhere on this TV and it's one of the few brands I recognized. My HDD's are Phillips and they're awesome so I had hoped this TV would be too.
I've used this product for a full day and I am blow away from what it delivers. I bought this TV for heavy gaming (PS3 & PC), watching Dish Network Satellite channels, and Blu-ray movies. I've tested each of these criteria on the Sony KDL40BX450 and have seen amazing clarity. There are also lots of features that it has which add to your personal viewing experience (i.e. different aspect ratios, scene selects, equalizer, etc.).
The motion performance is lackluster
While the Sony Bravia KDL-46BX450 (MSRP $699) is not the worst TV we have ever seen, it did not manage to impress us at all. This TV's performance results were below average in many categories: color consistency, motion, and viewing angle. To add insult to injury, accessing USB media files did not work properly on this Sony.
Some of the highlights of this TV include its simple menu interface, its stellar user manual, and the decent audio.
