Sony BRAVIA KDL32EX340 Review
Sony KDL32EX340 Review BEST Sony KDL32EX340 Review

5 Reasons For

Low Running Costs

This Sony television has an energy efficiency rating of A. The KDL-32EX340 has an average running cost of only £63 over 5 years based on typical energy prices and usage levels, which makes it one of the more economic to run TVs of a similar age and type.

Good Brand

Mid-size TVs built by Sony have good ratings on average compared to other manufacturers. We also checked the reviews for all televisions (not just mid-size TVs) and found that Sony also has good ratings across its entire range.

720p Video Mode

The Sony KDL-32EX340 supports a 720p video mode which is better than most TVs of a comparable spec and age to it. Most similar spec TVs that were released more than two years ago support a 1080p video mode. The best video mode of all comparable spec TVs that have been around for around the same time as the KDL-32EX340 is 2160p and the worst is 480i.

8 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a WiFi Connection

Most comparable spec TVs that are a similar age to the KDL-32EX340 do not have a WiFi connection. The KDL-32EX340 is no exception to this as it too does not have a WiFi connection.

There are a number of other TVs which also have a WiFi connection which you might want to look at including the Toshiba 32W3451 (£189.99); or the Sony KDL-32R433 (£259.00), or the Samsung UE48H6200 (£349.00).

Not Smart TV

The KDL-32EX340 is not Smart TV. Most of the other TVs of a similar spec and age to the KDL-32EX340 are also not Smart TV.

TVs which are Smart TV that might be worth looking at include the Samsung UE48H6200 (£349.00); or the Toshiba 32W3451 (£189.99), or the Samsung UE32ES5500.

Not 3D Compatible

Like most of the other mid-size TVs that have been available for more than two years, the Sony KDL-32EX340 is not 3D compatible.

If you are looking for a TV that is 3D compatible then you might want to consider the LG 42LM3450; or the Samsung UE48H6200 (£349.00).

Quite Slow Refresh Rate

TVs of this age and spec have refresh rates of between 50Hz and 1,600Hz, and the average refresh rate is 170Hz. When compared to other TVs of this type and age that we have assessed, the KDL-32EX340's refresh rate of only 50 hertz is one of the slowest.

If this Sony TV refresh rate is too slow for you then you might also want to look at the 32PHK4309 (£214.44) (60Hz), or the 32PHH4319 (£159.00) (60Hz) both from Philips or the Cello C40227 (£219.99) (60Hz).

Chart Edit

Only Digital Tuner

User Reviews

(Verified Purchase)

I did a lot of online evaluation before choosing this board...

Highly rated. Hardware RAID, not software so you get much better performance. But you pay for the performance
Host swap, hot rebuild and NCQ support. All very nice
Check out the review on "tom's hardware" site
Installing Debian sarge was a pain. Nothing would see the 3ware controller. I had to install on an IDE drive, then compile a kernel 2.6.11 to get it working
Note for Tyan G 28 servers: I had to switch from the 9550sx 4LP to the 8LP because the first sata ports are at the very end of the card. Due to this design, the 4LP is NOT compatible with the Tyan G 2
