Awesome TV, Freeview HD is highly recommended. Has been on sale previously but has now come back down in price again. Go for it! By the way - this is the newer model in relation to the Sony KDL32EX401U, as it has Freeview HD built in, whereas the other model does not.

Forget the £499 rrp, but this is still a good deal for a very good tv. The epg can't be beaten and its great being able to wirelessly hook it up to your pc - video can be played direct with no need for usb/external hard drive (although this is still an option). Picture is great, it looks good and with the functions you get I reakon this is the best you could possible do for £300.

I have this TV and the Internet Capability and Freeview HD make this great for £299! I am thiking of getting another!

50hz? Ugh.....

Good price though if you don't watch sport.

Hot - reserved one - but how does this compare to the Toshiba 32" that has been on sale at Amazon?

^^ Bravia 2 Sony? Lightyears better (and I had the Tosh Regza)

Not bad price...although I have the 100hZ LED one (KDL-32 Ex703) and is ab awesome TV...selling if anyone is interested £450??

Probably a really moronic question but if I hooked up a Sony BDPS370 Blu Ray player to this would I then be able to make use of the Blu Ray's internet connection through the wireless capabilities of the TV?

If you've got bad ghosting / image distortion on your EX403 you should get it fixed - no real issues with mine (although I haven't watched any sports on it yet).

Ther tv doesn't have wireless connection - you need to buy a dongle - v expensive. I hooked mine up to the modem and then used my wireless router to hook it up to my pc. BTW - Guy who bought i for £470 is a sucker - I got mine in May for £379.

No you wouldn't. The TV can't act as a network switch and as Clipper said the TV doesn't have wireless internet (unless you buy a separate wireless adapter for it).

Best is to run ethernet cables to your network router; but if that's impractical then you could buy a wireless repeater, (I guess it would be cheaper than a Sony dongle), and plug your TV and Blu-Ray into that... ...or go for a pair of homeplugs, (£40-50), one connected to your internet router and the other connected to an unmanaged switch, (about £6 from Amazon), which you plug your TV and blu-ray into. Most folks go for the homeplugs as they would also want to stream movies from a PC to the TV and 1080p is more likely to work through homeplugs than wireless.

Also a cool tv if you have a ps3 - you can fully control the ps3 through the tv's remote - good when watching blue rays.

back in january its was for £ 299 courtsey , John Lewis....with 5 yrs warranty....
then came in Richer Sounds for the same price but with 2 yrs .......

LCD is going with the wind....its time for LED........

samsung 32LED uc5100....thats the one...much betta than this one...it was on sale for £ 349 from best buy and rsound.....

If u ready to shell out £ 299 for a tele..doesnt make sense for LCD....its time for LED...mite as welll...spend a bit more and the best stuff......

wat say ???

Great tv , I have this linked to my home network , the only downside for me is it won't play avi files from my nas via dlna

Could use this to connect to your wireless network but it's only G. Cheap enough though.
broadbandbuyer.co.uk/Sho…462

or this for bridging multiple devices - I've got 2 of them.
trustedgoods.com/Net…8Ww

or just google wireless bridges if you need an N bridge.

FOR ANYONE WHO HAS THIS TV:

'Could you help me, i bought this tv but 40inch from currys at christmas.
However my boyfriend thinks they have given us the wrong tv as it looks like there is only freeview on ours.
Is the freeview HD clearly marked and does like bbc hd say its hd or not?
Thanks

We have the next model up the EX503 which we got from JL for £380 at New Year and it's an excellent TV (the 503 has 100Hz though).

In terms of Freeview HD, it depends where you live to whether it is broadcast in your area and as they are currently broadcast on reduced power you may need a better aerial., The HD channels start from 50 on Freeview. The HD channels are clearly marked as HD.

You can also play .mt2s files via the USB ports (profile needs to be 4.1 and AC3 rather than DTS sound). I've found DivX a bit more variable - some will play and some won't. The drive / memory stick needs to be in FAT32 so there is a 4Gb file limit.

Forget the hz & led comments . 32" doesn't need LED - it causes more probs than it fixes at 32" and 50hz on a 32" is better than anything higher unless all you want to watch is sport or play wargames. Anything above 50hz is modified and replayed, or interpolated.... google it. this should be one of the best 32"'s availible atm and has the bravia 3 engine. See hdtvtest.co.uk/new…htm for a test. voted hot.

Great set for the bedroom but if you are serious about TV get a plasma, not a 100hz LCD..

the website states they would beat 10% of the difference... not 10% off sale price... therefore, you'll probably only get £3 off... isn't that the case?

You will only receive freeview HD if this is available in your area. At present thase areas are few and in several the HD channels are broadcast in a lower power multiplex than other Freeview channel multiplexes. This will change rapidly over the next 18 months or so as DSO gathers pace and high power freeview HD is rolled out.

If it says Sony KDL-40EX403 on the label on the back then yes it will receive Freeview HD when a suitable signal is available

These "LED" TV's are all LCD's !!

They just use an LED backlight jnstead of a CCFL backlight - thats all!

Using LED's means the TV can be made thinner - thats all.

Most "LED" TV's are only edge lit which introduces uniformity problems.

Full LED backlit LCD's are very expensive.

Does anyone know the difference between Sony KDL-32EX403 32 Inch and Sony KDL32EX401U 32 Inch?

Around the new year both John Lewis and Richer Sounds* were selling this TV for £299 and with a 5 year warranty - my son bought one.

* Richer Sounds were including a Sony 5 year warranty offer ( expired Jan 31st)

AFAIK the 401 does not have a Freeview HD tuner and the 403 has. Also not sure the 401 has the Internet TV feature?

The write up on the 401 states:

Television picture quality:

* Full HD 1080p.
* Freeview digital tuner.
* 32in (81cm) widescreen TV with 81cm visible screen size.
* Resolution 1920 x 1080 pixels.
* 50Hz.
* BRAVIA Engine 2 image enhancement.

Connectivity:

* 4 HDMI sockets.
* 2 SCART sockets.
* PC input socket.
* Component video socket.
* Composite.
* Optical connection.
* Headphone socket.
* S-Video socket.
* AV socket (side and rear).
* 1 USB port.

Think it must be the internet connectivity.

Thanks Leadbeter

I have the same issue. I can see the 4 HD channels, but I get 0 signal and 0 stats for all of them and it took ages for them to show up on the channel list. My local dealer said there could be an issue with the HD tuner, but then it could be signal issues and there is no way to test this! Ergh,

How do you get the price match? Do you have to phone the number or can you just go in the store? At my local retail park Argos and PCworld/Currys are next door to each other!

No the 401 also does not have a Freeview HD (DVBT-2) tuner. It just states Freeview not Freeview HD. Also I note the 401 is Bravia Engine 2, the 403 is Bravia Engine 3 ( although personally I doubt this makes a ha'p'orth of difference!)
