Sony mid-size TVs have good reviews on average and across all TVs Sony is one of the superior manufacturers.
Only Released Five Months Ago
This mid-size TV was released just five months ago, so it is likely to use better technology than some of the older TVs.
Like most of the other mid-size TVs that have been on the market for the last year, the Sony KDL-32WD759 is Smart TV.
Alternative Smart TV televisions currently available which you might want to consider include the UE32J6272 (£488.00), or the UE49K6300 (£489.00) both from Samsung which is cheaper; or the LG 49UH610 (£499.00) which has a better Rating.
Has a WiFi Connection
The KDL-32WD759 has a WiFi connection. Most of the other mid-size TVs that have been on the market for a comparable time to the KDL-32WD759 also have a WiFi connection.
There are a number of other TVs with a WiFi connection currently available which you might also want to look at including a cheaper TV such as the UE32J6272 (£488.00), or the UE49K6300 (£489.00) both from Samsung or you might consider a better rated TV such as the LG 49UH610 (£499.00).
Quite Fast Refresh Rate
Latest mid-size TVs have refresh rates of between 50Hz and 1,800Hz. The Sony KDL-32WD759 has a quite fast refresh rate (400 hertz) compared to most of the other mid-size TVs that are a similar age to the KDL-32WD759.
We compared all the other 400Hz refresh rate televisions to this TV and we think the Telefunken D43F278A3 which is cheaper is also worth considering.
Two RF Ports
The Sony KDL-32WD759 is a two RF port TV. Most of the other latest mid-size TVs only have one RF port.
+5 More reasons for
Has One Sound Mode
The KDL-32WD759 has a greater number of sound modes than most mid-size TVs that came out around the same time as it. The most commonly found sound mode is Music, but this sound mode is not found on this TV. The sound modes Game|Music|Sports|Standard are also found on this television.
1080p Video Mode
This television supports a 480i|480p|576i|576p|720p|1080i|1080p video mode, which is the most commonly supported video mode on new televisions.
Very Low Annual Energy Consumption
With an annual energy consumption of only 58 kilowatt hours, the KDL-32WD759 has one of the lower annual energy consumptions amongst mid-size TVs of this age. Mid-size TVs that have been on the market for the last year have annual energy consumptions of between 37kWh and 200kWh.
Across all the new mid-size TVs the weights range from 1kg to 36kg, and the average weight is 9.4kg. The Sony KDL-32WD759 is one of the lighter mid-size TVs that have been available for a comparable time to the KDL-32WD759 (only 6.4 kilograms) amongst similar spec televisions of this age.
5 Reasons Against
Not 3D Compatible
The KDL-32WD759 is not 3D compatible, although keep in mind that most of the other recently released mid-size TVs are also not 3D compatible.
Does Not Have a Built-In Camera
The KDL-32WD759 does not have a built-in camera. Most of the other mid-size TVs that came out around the same time as the KDL-32WD759 also do not have a built-in camera.
Does Not Feature OLED Technology
Like most of the other similar spec televisions that were released around the same time as the KDL-32WD759, the KDL-32WD759 does not feature OLED technology.
We think you might also be interested in alternative TVs which also feature OLED technology including the Philips 43PUH4900 (£246.00).
Very Low RMS Rated Power
Comparable spec TVs that have been available for a similar time to the KDL-32WD759 have RMS rated power of between 5W and 60W. With an RMS rated power of only 10 Watts, the KDL-32WD759 has a fairly low RMS rated power compared to most of the other latest comparable spec TVs.

The most frequently found smart mode is Game, but this smart mode is not found on this television.
