Good:  Warm colours, Good upscaling of standarddefinition channels, Stylish design, Good connectivity
Bad:  Motion blur, Contrast performance could be better
Bottomline:  There's plenty to like about the 32-inch Sony KDL-32EX524, including its warm pictures, good selection of Internet video services and stylish design. However, it's let down slightly by below-par contrast performance and some issues with motion blur....

Good:  BBC iPlayer, Lovefilm & Demand 5, Freeview HD, excellent EPG, good upscaling, iPhone app, black levels
Bad:  Long-winded GUI, Wi-Fi is a pricey add-on, lacks Full HD detail, some motion blur
Bottomline:  Great for movies though lacking the brightness of rival brands' Edge LED-backlit offerings, Sony's 37-incher piles on the features. This budget TV certainly punches above its weight...

Good:  Good price, Mostly excellent 'smart TV' features, Superb black levels for an edge LED TV
Bad:  Resolution loss with motion, Images aren't especially bright by edge LED standards, The set's build quality isn't the best
Bottomline:  Not so long ago, 37-inch TVs were the most popular size in Britain. In 2011, though, they seem to be a dying breed, with fewer and fewer models finding their way into TV ranges. Sony, for instance, only has two 37-inch TVs in its latest range, includin...

Good:  Decent value, Excellent online services, Mostly good picture quality
Bad:  Motion blur, Best picture settings lack brightness, Operating system needs work
Bottomline:  Sony's 37EX524 is frustratingly close to being a great TV for its money, thanks to an excellent black level response free of backlight inconsistencies, and some superb online features. Ultimately, though, it's let down a little by obvious motion blur....

Excerpt:  There was a time when a 40 inch screen would have been considered huge but these days you probably couldn't even find a plasma that small. For this reason the 40 inch and smaller market is almost exclusively made up of LCD screens which come in two flavou...

Bottomline:  Overall, I’d rate the 40EX524 as a stylish, everyman telly with a forward looking feature roster. As such, it bodes well for other screens in Sony’s 2011 line. While more demanding users should look up the Sony range for better picture quality, I susp...

Good:  Smart TV and new IPTV interface, design and build, connectivity, price.
Bad:  The lack of picture quality finessing (no MontionFlow for example) means fast moving pictures can be a tad blurry and the audio output leaves something to be desired. Product Shots Sony's new Bravia KDL-40EX524 Edge LED HD TV sports a fine line of internet TV features and a Presence Sensor detects if anyone is watching (or not) and shuts down the picture when no one is around watching the tele
Bottomline:  The Sony Bravia KDL-40EX524 is a great Internet connected HD TV with great IPTV features but you’ll not be getting the best Sony has to offer in terms of picture quality technology at this level. What you do get though, is a superbly designed, well-f...
