Thanks, going to have a look tomorrow for my dad. I bought one from morrisons 2 weeks ago for £427.00 and thought that was good. :thinking:
#2
Aren't Sony pushing the new Bravia 2 engines now so these are "old" stock
#5
Yeah amazon is the same price. Some people may prefer to go to the shop though (and you get nectar points!) lol!

and aty.... yes they are, but these old ones do the job! my 360's great on it :-D
#6
Is it 1080p?
#7
I'm told it's only 720p which makes it pretty steep. I know it's a Sony but there are 1080p 32" HDTVs available for £299.99 so IMO it's not worth paying £100 more for a lower res TV just for the sake of a brand name.
#8
aparently you dont need 1080p on tvs 32" and lower, theres no point. good deal voted hot
#9
That's not quite true but most people won't be able to tell the difference. Point still stands though - why pay £100 more just for a Sony logo?
#10
What's the warranty?
#11
sony tvs are great but as others have said this is a clearance tv and is fairly old but when it comes to 1080p etc dont worry theres not a huge difference between 720p and 1080p and if you want to be bothered about 1080p then your going to want to be bother about full hd which means most likely an extra 200 quid or something like that for a tv with a resolution high enough for true full hd.
Personally i think there are better tvs on the market at this price.
#12
We have 1080p or i (cant remember) on our 26" model - the xbox connects through that.

Found this on sony's website though:
has 576i, 480p, 576p, 1080i & 720p

I bought this from Argos yesterday for the bedroom. Not bad for the price! Looks great with hi-def from my xbox 1 with XBMC and my 360

That is a good deal jaybird... i may even get one when i've decorated my room!!
If not, i can pay £60 extra for a sony (staff discount inc.)
Hmm decisions.... i would rather a sony for the brand... lol
#17
argos are expensive when it comes to televisions and i would stay far away from acoustic solutions if i was you....... cheap for a reason.

If you want a tv i would go for one of the folling makes(in no order)..... sony,phillips,panasonic,toshiba,pioneer or samsung.

Gimme the cash and i gladly will.

For a main TV, i would definitely get a branded one (i have) but for a bedroom TV, it is great!

short on cash then samsung or panasonic probably best bet. toshiba are also fairly cheap for the quality.

Please link me to your 26" 1080p TV. I'm 99.9% sure they don't exist. They have only just started selling 32" 1080p sets. Your set is probably 1080i. It annoys me having all this false information here when people will be making a purchase.

I can't understand why this is hot. you can get the kdl32s3000 for 416 quid from dixons, much better tv! This tv sucks!
#28
I agree with sharp910sh, These tvs suck!!!! They only sell them in places like sainsbury and argos, sony centers wont touch them with a barge pole cus there made with really cheap parts and dont even have a bravia engine or real live colour creation system, hence they only get 12 months warranty and not the 5 years you get in the sony shop, I work for sony :whistling:

"but there are 1080p 32" HDTVs available for £299.99"...link!!! Think thats a ridiculous claim. 1080p screens are still pretty expensive, havent seen any under £499. You can definitely get similar spec tvs for a little cheaper, decent brands too (toshiba, samsung etc) but still a good price for what are normally very overpriced bravia tvs.

People still seem to be confused about tv specs, particularly resolution which is covered all over the net and a simple google search will provide clarity. However for the millionth time here goes:

720 means 720 vertical lines of resolution where as 1080 means 1080 vertical lines (which will provide a sharper more detailed picture, but is only really noticeable on 37"+ screens). The i/p stand for interlaced/progressive, interlaced refreshes every other vertical line of resolution on each pass, so first the odd then the even lines - this means with every pass every other line is slightly out of date by a split second. Progressive updates every vertical line with every pass meaning the picture is up to date across all lines, this is particularly noticeable on action scenes/scenes with a lot of movement so id personally recommend using 720p over 1080i.

I am sure he/she didnt do it on purpose.



I wouldn't personally reccomend this model, its the U series model, which is a very budget model.

Your money would be more wise spent on this: http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/178518/toshiba-32av504-32-widescreen-hd-re/
or the Toshiba 32C3030 (£400@ play.com)

This model doesn't even feature the Bravia Engine version 1. When it says it's a Bravia TV that actually refers to Bravia TheatreSync which is a way of connecting it to a DVD player. Therefore without BE this TV is no better than a cheaper brand such as Vistron (in fact IMO it is worse.)
#32
Personally, I would go for this P-Series model instead.

Worth the extra £50 and also comes with a 5 year warranty.

Or, if money is not tight at the moment, go for the KDL-32D3000 which is a FANTASTIC set and has motion-flow (100hz) which is perfect for fast moving scenes such as sport - but you are looking at around the £600 mark for one of those.

:thumbsup:

As for the 1080p debate .. which would you rather have? a rola-cola 1080p set or a quality Sony/Panasonic set which runs 1080i(720p)? I know which I would go for :-D

Don't be swayed just by the 1080p sticker... afterall, you can't polish a turd :whistling:
#33
My friend got this set for his PS3, and it does look very good for that. It should be noted that resolution isn't everything, the best 42" plasma set on the market is widely claimed to be the 720p Pioneer set rather than its 1080p competitors, it's the overall image quality instead of out and out resolution that should be judged.
#34
Good find mate
#35
The discussion of 1080i/p etc lark is getting confused! Most of these TVs can now handle any input, but the screen itself is 1 resolution and 1 resolution only. For 32" and 26" this is (almost always) something near 720p (usually not actually 720 which I never understand). There are only a couple (and I mean a couple) of true 1080p 32" sets out there at the moment. There are no 26" at all - people are arguing if it's worth it on a 32" (I think it is ;) )

The processing inside the TV that mashes the image from the input resolution to the display resolution is the important bit - if it's really good at processing what you've input, the picture will look good. If it's a bit **** at that then it will look chod except when you input at the resolution of the screen. Most will still be watching non HD digital - essentially 576i. You need to get a TV that has a really good image processor to bring that up to the resolution of the panel without looking awful.

Regarding cheap tellys, they really are a false economy - they're made exceptionally cheaply these days and are very likely to be broken within a couple of years. The margins on these are low, so retailers want to sell you another one in a couple of years. Get a reasonably priced branded TV (although I'm concerned about the comments from portchy about there being cheaply made sonys out there!)

I have owned this sony 32"bravia tv for 21/2 years now and cannot recomend it highly enough,suffice to say because i'm so pleased i only have sony in my house now!!.
I have just got a sony blue ray dvd player & it has automaticlly upgraded the tele from 720p to 1020p (because the arial goes in the dvd then in the bravia via a hdmi lead),now i have 1020p highh definition all the time.:-D

Nobody gets a high definition picture (TV not DVD) unless they have a High Definition decoder.
Amazing how many people believe they are receiving HD just because they have a HD Ready TV.
