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...

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...
