Sony KDL-32R420B 32-inch TV Review: Mediocre Set at Premium Price
19 November 2014
Summary: The KDL-32R420B would have been a decent buy a year or two ago. But with similar prices for 1080p sets that perform better while also including capabilities such as Smart TV functions, there's simply no justification for buying this or any 720p set any longer.
Pros: Excellent surround audio, generally balanced color, impressive upscaling of DVDs
Cons: Overly dark images with poor shadow detail; 720p resolution makes for jagged on-screen text and graphics (especially with video games); lack of smart-TV functions
