Verified Purchase
This TV only got 4 stars because the price is a little higher than similar competition, and the remote does not have backlighting and can't control other non-Sony components or older Sony components like DVD or AV receivers. Nonetheless, the picture is surprisingly good compared to other LCD televisions when using standard definition cable input. The on screen guide when using antenna input for over-the air picture (with HD quality) is top notch. It is very easy to set up and use. It is worth the price for the picture quality. The internet browser and internet video probably will not replace your computer and other sources of content, but might be a bonus.

Date of my review (and rev): 9-27-2011-a (Less detailed review at top. TMI at bottom - "See notes below")...

About me:
Basic TV watcher, non-HDTV, Via an old DVR-SD, BD (Blue Ray)/DVD-HD, and VHS-SD - Techie, but old School...

TV: KDL-32EX520 (521 has 18 Month warranty from Sony, Costco gives 2 Years)
Cost, and purchased from ware: $499, Costco

Bottom line:
Grate picture, sound is OK (not as good as I expect), and has slightly buggy software (firmware (see notes below, revision), and is a little hard to use (not always intuitive, as I would expect from Sony)...

Picture:
As I stated, I can't complain about the picture (See my notes on TV usage, below (for more info).

Sound:
Barely OK. Not enough, Bass tones (see note-1 for what I expect). The Sound is better than the last TV, I just returned (Vizio e320vp), for NO BASS at all, and weird sounding in general (See note-2 below).
I set the Sony's EQ to max base, and turned down the treble slightly, this had a minimal positive effect, on the lack of Bass. The Bass is still low. Not horribly bad, just not, as good as expected (just to watch TV).

Volume:
Is good and not distorted.

Ease of Use:
Probably average. But not as good as I expected from a Sony. I have had it, freeze on a couple occasions. I think, it has old software. I just got it.

Inputs:
It has two inputs (beside the 4 HDMI). Two Composite (yellow cable) type, but the other input is shared with Component RGB (Red/Green/Blue). You get ONE Composite, and ONE Component input. See note-3, for input options...

Bug found:
The TV ships in "Demo-Mode.

I purchased two of these TV's less than a week ago. I unpacked one so and thus far everything is working like advertised. No problems experienced. Picked them up for a great price. So far I have nothing to say negative about the TV. For a rather small TV I feel the sound is very good and I do not need external speakers. I hooked my iMac to this TV to have it act as a second monitor to the iMac. Here is how I did it: I went from the Mini Display Port on the iMac and used a converter to HDMI, then plugged that directly into HDMI 1 on the Sony. Still have 3 HDMI's available. I have an excellent picture out of the box but not sure I have achieved the best picture possible yet, but there are a lot of adjustments that I need to experiment with. I would like to better understand how I can obtain a better picture when I am using the TV as an external monitor to the iMac. It is usable as is, but I feel it needs some adjustments to make it better. Any suggestions are welcomed and I will give them a try. I looked at the AVS site to see what I could find as recommended settings to achieve the max potential, but so far I have not found much information relating to this particular model. I use this as a external monitor to run things like "Adobe Help" and on my iMac screen I might be using Photoshop at the same time. I am able to research and follow directions from the external monitor Sony TV. Lot of real estate on this 32" screen. My model is KDL-32EX520. I also use this set while I am working on my computer to watch TV programs. I will update this review as I become more familiar with the TV.
