Experience TV, movies and games in superb Full HD on the Sony Bravia KDL32EX403U. You’ll also be able to enjoy music, photos and videos from your digital devices via the USB Media Player.

The KDL32EX403U is also Wi-Fi Ready so when you add your wireless adaptor or USB dongle (sold separately) you can easily connect to your wireless home network without the clutter of cables. Fancy some catch up TV? With Bravia Internet Video you’ll be able to connect your TV directly to the Internet to access selected online services such as BBC iPlayer and YouTube.

The Bravia Engine 3 ensures that images are displayed with impressive detail, optimal contrast, and truer-to-life colours. S-Force Front Surround complements the great picture with the full effect of digital surround sound. The ‘Invisible’ speakers are cleverly hidden in the design and positioned for the ideal sound elevation.

Fans of the movies will love Cinema Mode. You can choose from two different modes to reproduce an authentic movie experience with unique film-like textures and adjusted colour and brightness settings.

And let’s not forget that the Sony KDL32EX403U is also DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance) compatible. This enables you to access your photos, music and movies from your PC across your home network from a compatible device. For instance, you could play your friends the latest MP3 track you’ve just downloaded, even though your computer is upstairs in the spare bedroom.

The Light Sensor on this model automatically reacts to the brightness of the room you’re in, making sure you always get the best picture. It also saves energy – and saves you money too.

1080p
1080p is the purest form of high definition that a television can display. This leads to a smoother, more film-like image, which will satisfy sports and movie lovers alike. With a 1080p signal, the information that makes up an image is displayed “progressively” or all at once, rather than in an “interlaced” fashion.

Sony dongle needed

I purchased the Netgear Powerline XAVB101-100UKS, which has very high reviews and is confirmed to work with this TV - via a ethernet cable and wall plug. The Sony Dongle is not supposed to be as effective as a hard wired switch.

Is anybody willing to actually stop sitting on the fence regarding gaming on this set and reveal how it *actually* plays? I'm hovering because I hear mixed reviews about a) SD picture b) PC->VGA quality c) input lag from xbox et al.

My main usage would be browsing/video from PC, XBox (with some FPS play) and also would run my Virgin box into this (SCART I guess?) - these are the three things I would want to use this for, so can someone shed a reasonable amount of light here? Reticent to throw 300 quid down without a full idea...

Just ordered one for the bedroom! Thanks op
#249
Right think I will order this, just two quick questions.

1. Do JL deliver to Northern Ireland for free? I have searched the website and can't see anything mentioning NI.

2. The 5 year warranty - I assume in NI this is OK (there are no JL stores here YET), and the recent posts have me worried.

Assume going by heat and comments I won't be disappointed by the TV!?

Do you deliver to my address?
We deliver to most postal areas in the UK, but we're sorry that geographical location and carrier availability can restrict our service. Delivery of certain products to the Channel Islands, Isles of Scilly and the Isle of Man may not always be possible, and we do not deliver to the Republic of Ireland.

For everyone looking for info on what this TV will be like for gaming!

According to this review Review

Heres the info for gamers

"Console Gaming
The Sony KDL32EX403 features around 40ms of input lag, when compared to a lag-free CRT monitor. This is a tolerable figure that will probably go generally unnoticed, but speaking as someone who’s on the lookout for it and who is used to very fast displays, the difference was noticeable in the first-person shooter games I demo’d on the TV. In fact, the slight delay in images hitting the screen had the interesting effects of making the game controls feel tighter and weightier, and bizarrely, it gave fast-paced “one hit and you’re dead” games an almost peaceful feeling (assuming you’re still winning, that is)."

Hope this helps! I bought it for the same reason so i will be returning it!


You should actually try it before deciding to return it. 40ms may not be that noticeable.

It might get by streaming low bandwidth stuff, but "g" wifi is just not fast enough to be reliable streaming HD Video files, even more so if it is not the best of connections,(which is the norm with wifi!) or if it is in use for other connections at the time too.

Powerline Ethernet gets round all the problems without a lot of messing around.

Yes, once you have tried it, just turn wifi off, as it's so much poorer!

We've got a Belkin router downstairs, and this tele is going to be in my room. Can you just point me to what I need to buy, as these things seem to be looking like £70? Or am i looking at the wrong thing? I'm already bridging my laptop connection for my xbox so can't use that for the Sony (if that is possible anyway...)

I wasn't being daft... the review re gaming linked here is somewhat ambiguous regarding gaming, and there are several reports of poor SD pic quality in the UK Amazon reviews. Ditto PC output quality - some reports of no signal achieved, or text (etc) ghosting via the VGA connection on similar Sony models, AFAICT.
#264
I'll hopefully be receiving delivery of this set tomorrow morning (fingers crossed) for the front room.

The intention is to move the PS3 out of the back room which is currently the main TV (42" Panny G10 BTW) and run it on the Sony.

I'm a little concerned regarding the 40ms as most of my, I mean the kids games! are driving so will report back to see how good/bad this set is :)

Ebuyer had a starter pack (2 units of the 2000mbs type) for about 40 quid, http://www.ebuyer.com/product/160665 there was a deal recently too I think, check recent posts. Plug into Mains socket - Plug one in to a router port, plug the other in to the gear you want to connect (eg. the TV) and it's just as if you had connected it to the router with a cable, as it sends the data along the electrical mains!
Quick and easy to set up.

Great deal. Just bought one as a belated Xmas prezzie for a family member. The 5 year warranty included is what swung it

Awesome! Thanks for the info, no idea how it works through the mains but sounds good. Thanks.
