Video processing — a big part of the Sony difference

Sony is known for their advanced video processing technology. The X-Reality™ Pro chip enhances detail and reduces video noise by actually drawing on a database of real patterns, shapes and textures to display a startlingly lifelike picture. You'll see the benefits of X-Reality Pro on everything from Blu-ray discs to streamed Netflix® movies.

Easy entertainment, wirelessly

The KDL-32W600D's built-in Wi-Fi® lets you link up easily to your home network. Go online and browse movies, enjoy video channels like YouTube™, and access services like on-demand TV. Best of all, you can stream entertainment from the web via your home network without the clutter of cables. If you do connect any video sources, Sony's nifty idea of routing cables through the rear stand legs helps keep them out of sight.

Great TV -- much more picture quality than I expected

Alice from New York, NY on 9/12/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Has enough connection options for sound bar, dvd, and more. I highly recommend it. 720P is certainly enough to get a great picture, can 't see any difference from sets this size that have 1080. May i add that Crutchfield is great. If you depend on Customer Service and a large selection of great products, you can't find a better company.

Pros: Great picture. Sound is good. Easy to set up. Stand for table top seems secure on a rolling cart.

Cons: None so far.

I selected the model, size and manufacturer based on reviews. I could not be more satisfied with my choice. Purchasing the product from Crutchfield was much easier than making the purchase from one of the big box stores. Just in time for the college football season.

Pros: Phenomenal color, super clarity and sound, perfect size coupled with Sony quality.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Excellent picture quality and sound. Best seller with outstanding customer support.

Pros: Quality product. Easy installation. 32" picture and set dimensions fit perfectly in our Stickily in our family room entertainment center. Replaced a 93 pound 27' JVC made 11/1998 that knocked out, Sony hooked up to our TIVO Romeo in a seamlessly. Crutchfield team & policies top notch.

Cons: We will Velcro the TV stand to the wood cabinet shelf just in case of an one of our California earthquakes.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Great TV and fast delivery from the Crutchfield Team. I've been a fan of Sony for a long time and the picture quality for this model is really good. Size is true to dimension, easy to mount on wall, TV sound is good without using extra speakers. If you are looking for a good 32" TV for your bedroom or small room with all the perks (Smart TV), this is a good deal.

Pros: Great picture, sound, easy to set-up and true to size.

Cons: I gave this TV a 4 star rating due to the the fact, when I mounted TV on the wall, it covered up one of the USB port.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This tv has an awesome picture, not so easy to hook up a sound bar though. Having trouble finding the right cable for it. Also, periodically when we turn it on there will be no picture. Try to power it off, and it won't. Have to unplug it, wait about a minute, plug it back in and then it will come on right. I went with Sony because I had one from 2007 and it was a good tv. Just recently picture started messing up after 10 years! A worth while investment. Don't mind spending the money for a quality tv. Hoping this one I just purchased is a fluke...going to send it back and get another.

Great find

Rodger from Fredericksburg, VA on 7/4/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

We needed a 32" Sony HD TV to replace an older similar model. A national retailer local staff told me Sony no longer made such televisions. They tried to sell me a larger set which we did not need three times. I was pleased to find Crutchfield not only had such a set, but it would be delivered immediately at no extra cost. I will check out the Crutchfield site for any future needs. The Sony we purchased is perfect for our needs. Thanks for the help.

Bev from Pomona, CA on 6/3/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Love this TV - picture quality is great, sound also. I don't have a sound bar attached because it's in the bedroom. Sound from the TV is very good. Because I'm an avid believer in Sony products, my rating may be biased; however, I only buy the best. No, I'm not a snob, I just know what I like - LOL.

Pros: Pic quality, sound, size & it's a smart TV. (smarter than me)

Cons: None

First of all I was impressed with Crutchfield fast and promised date of delivery. This was my first time ordering from Crutchfield. This Sony 32 incher looks fantastic picture wise and design wise, it really is a beautiful set. It fits perfectly in my bedroom and I love, love the fact that it doesn't have a always glow in the dark LED powered on thus keeping my bedroom completely dark at night.

Good size TV for medium size room

B from Morristown, NJ on 5/9/2017

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

The picture quality is brilliant! The size is perfect for my bedroom. Sound quality is good, especially since there are no additional speakers. The only reason I gave this a 4 vs a 5 star rating is for the stand. Sony did not do themselves ay favors with this stand. It is puny! It works, but I am seriously considering a safety belt for the TV so if the furniture gets moved too quickly, it won't fall over.

Pros: It has access to various internet media sources, such as Hulu, Netflix, etc.

Cons: It has access to various internet media sources, such as Amazon, Hulu, Netflix, etc. Yes, these will cost you extra per month if you want to access them. They are internet dependable so if your router is not powerful enough to send out a signal to the TV, or even hard wired, you may experience dropped service and a interruption in your viewing. And the TV stand, it needs beefing up!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I purchased this 32 inch TV for the kitchen. I replaced a Samsung of the same size. The Samsung had a very good picture, but the sound was terrible. The TV resides in a kitchen cabinet and is pulled out for viewing. There is not a good way to add a sound bar to the TV so we were relying on the internal TV sound. I have other Sony TV's and not only do they have a good picture, but the sound output from the TV is also very good. So, out with the Samsung and in with the Sony. Problem solved. The picture is great and the sound is natural and voices clear.

I can't get this TV to work. everything is hooked up properly, but no picture. Cannot interface with the cable correctly, so I have to use both remotes; one to turn on the TV and the other to turn on the cable. I will be returning the TV to SONY soon.

Amazing picture from all angles. Quality look and feel. This is my second 32" Sony LED but first smart TV. The smart TV component is ready the second you turn on the TV with access to Netflix, VUDU and Pandora. The remote is simple with a Netflix shortcut. Worth the extra money for a Sony that will last.

Pros: Viewing angles, picture quality, smart

Cons: Smart apps don't include HBO

This TV fit the bill. It has a great picture and setting up the TV was easy. It has a nice on-screen setup process. The only thing I wish it had was 1080p, but it still has an amazing picture. The cable TV shows now fit on this Sony 32" screen.

Video Features

Direct-Lit LED + Frame Dimming Technology: Direct-Lit LED backlight technology bridges the gap between lower-cost CCFL (fluorescent) LCD TVs and edge-lit LED-LCD TVs. With the addition of Frame Dimming, the TV provides better contrast & detail.

  • Direct-Lit LED: Direct-Lit LED-LCD televisions feature LEDs positioned all the way across the LCD panel's back plane (instead of along the side). Unlike "Full-Array" backlight LED-LCD televisions that also feature LEDs positioned along the LCD panel's back plane, the Direct-Lit LED technology uses fewer LEDs. Since there are fewer LEDs, the LCD panel's back plane must be moved farther away from the screen to provide adequate light coverage across the LCD panel, making the TV deeper than an edge-lit LED-LCD television. Direct-Lit LED backlight technology offers a better picture and is more energy efficient than previous CCFL (fluorescent) LCD televisions, though it requires a larger cabinet design than edge-lit LED-LCD TVs.
  • Frame Dimming: Even though Direct-Lit LED technology does not offer local dimming, the TV does utilize Frame Dimming technology. Rather than illuminating the entire screen, lighting is boosted in just the right areas for greater contrast and a more realistic picture.

X-Reality PRO Engine: Sony's X-Reality PRO Engine lets you enjoy a vivid, lifelike picture experience by analyzing each scene pixel-by-pixel so you see sharpened images, amazing contrast, and fine detail. Blu-ray Disc movies, cable TV, satellite TV, and even Web videos each place unique demands on the processing circuits of a TV. The X-Reality PRO Engine helps get the best results from these different video sources by analyzing texture, outline, contrast, and color reproduction. The X-Reality PRO Engine will then analyze each scene pixel-by-pixel across 3-dimensions (Width, Height, and Time) and uses sophisticated pattern matching to optimize the picture, ensuring you always get the best images possible.

  • Realistic Picture: Each pixel is analyzed and then enhanced thanks to the Reality Creation database, which adjusts the detail and noise for a more realistic picture. In addition to the Reality Creation Database, the TV offers a Resolution, Edge, & Detail Enhancer to further adjust the detail, edges, & clarity of the picture. There is also a Skin Naturalizer & Smooth Gradation feature to make skin texture smoother and more realistic, plus create smooth gradations on flat surface of the picture.
  • Accurate Color Management: Its Accurate Color Management system reproduces accurate color while maintaining the brightness, hue, and saturation of whatever you're watching. Additional color settings include Live Color (makes color more vivid)), Clear White (emphasizes white colors), White Balance (adjusts color temperature), Gamma (balances bright & dark area of picture) & Black Corrector (enhances black areas for stronger contrast).
  • Intelligent Noise Reduction: Intelligent Noise Reduction removes noise without sacrificing detail through. The TV's Intelligent Noise Reduction system enhances detail in whatever you're watching with meticulous processing. It even helps clean up video from DVD, digital broadcasts, USB and PC sources so the picture looks pristine and vivid. 

MotionFlow XR 240: Sony's MotionFlow XR 240 technology, combines 60 frames-per-second with an advanced backlight blinking system to simulate a 240 Hz effect. MotionFlow XR 240 provides smooth and precise detail during fast-action scenes for fast action movies and sports by reducing blur caused by quick camera movements, enhancing image sharpness, and overall creating a clearer picture. The TV also uses LED Motion Mode to reduce blur in movies by decreasing the TV's brightness level.

Advanced Contrast Enhancer + Auto Light Limiter: The televisions Advance Contrast Enhancer (ACE) automatically adjusts backlight and contrast to the most suitable setting judging from the brightness of the screen. This setting is especially effective for dark scenes, and will increase the contrast distinction for the darker picture scenes. The Auto Light Limiter automatically reduces glare in scenes where there is too much white.

720p Resolution: The Sony LED-LCD television has a native resolution of 1366 x 768 (720p). All video signals from standard definition and high definition sources are displayed at 720p.

Video Inputs: The Sony television is equipped with HDMI, Component, and Composite video inputs.

  • HDMI: The TV is fitted with two HDMI inputs to connect your high-definition sources; such as Blu-ray/DVD player, Satellite/Cable receiver, game system, and AV receiver. In addition, any HDMI input can be used to connect a PC to this TV. The HDMI inputs will accept 1080p (60/24Hz), 1080i, 720p, 480p, and 480i signals.
  • Component/Composite: The component video input will accept 1080p (60Hz), 1080i, 720p, 480p, and 480i signals. If needed, the component video input can be used as a composite video (480i only) input instead.
Note: The TV has built-in over-the-air HDTV (ATSC) and Digital Cable (QAM) tuners with an RF-coaxial input, so you don't need a separate set-top box to receive and decode over-the-air HDTV/SDTV or unencrypted Digital Cable signals.

24pTrue Cinema (24p Input Capability): Many movies are filmed at 24 frames per second (fps) and prime time TV programs are video taped at 24p. Seizing on an opportunity, some studios are taking a purist approach and encoding high definition video content such as Blu-ray Disc in 24p. Sony wisely takes advantage of this by including 24p input capability via HDMI on this television producing images that are smooth and natural looking.

Wide Mode: The Wide Mode feature allows you to select the screen display which fits the current video image and TV screen best. Based on the original signal source, you may see black bars around the picture or just on the both sides of the screen. Sometimes you will see the picture fill the full screen.

Wide Mode 16:9 Original Source4:3 Original Source
Wide ZoomEnlarges the picture to fill the screen with minimal distortion. Enlarges the center portion of the 4:3 picture proportionately, while the left and right edges of the screen are stretched to fill the screen.

Auto Wide

Automatically changes screen settings base upon incoming video signal and content.

Picture Modes: You can select one of the following picture modes to batter suit your content, viewing environment, and preference.

  • Standard: Displays a standard picture for typical viewing environments.
  • Vivid: Enhances picture brightness, contrast, and sharpness.
  • Custom: Backlight (adjust brightness of backlight), Picture (adjusts picture contrasts), Brightness (adjusts brightness of picture), Color (adjusts color intensity), Hue (adjusts green and red tones), Color Temperature (adjusts the whiteness of the picture), and Sharpness (adjusts sharpness of picture).

CineMotion: This function provides improved picture movement and reduces picture blur and graininess for film-based content, like Blu-ray & DVD.

Picture Adjustment Lock: You can also lock the television's picture adjustments to prevent the TV's Picture Settings from being changed.

Audio Features

TV Position: The speakers of this TV provide different sound images according to how you position the television. You can select between "Table-Top Stand" or "Wall Mount" to provide the best sound quality based on the television's placement.

Clear Voice: This features makes voice sound clearer over sound effects and other audio going on in a TV show or movie scene.

Equalizer: The TV offers five EQ preset sound modes - Standard, Cinema, Music, Game, & Sports. The TV is also equipped with a 7-band EQ (100Hz, 200Hz, 500Hz, 1kHz, 2kHz, 5kHz, 10kHz). You can adjust the level of each band between -16 to +16.

Volume Settings: The Sony television offers a variety of settings that keep the TV's volume at a consistent level. Steady Sound stabilizes the volume across all programs and commercials. Volume Offset adjusts the volume level of the current input relative to other inputs. Dynamic Range compensates for the differences in the audio level between different channels.

ARC (Audio Return Channel): The Audio Return Channel in HDMI 1.4 enables a TV, via a single HDMI cable, to send audio data "upstream" to an A/V receiver; increasing user flexibility and eliminating the need for any separate S/PDIF audio connection. This feature allows audio to be sent from the television to your A/V receiver through the same HDMI cable already being used to send audio/video to the television. This eliminates the need for extra cables connected to the TV. ARC allows audio from the TV tuner, Network connection, inserted USB device, HDMI inputs, or any analog connected device to be heard through your ARC compatible AV receiver via the television's HDMI ARC input. The audio from the TV's tuner, HDMI inputs, network connection, and USB input can pass as Dolby Digital or 2ch PCM. Analog connected devices will be output as 2ch PCM only.

Note: Both the television and the receiver must support ARC for this function to work properly. When connecting an A/V receiver that is compatible with Audio Return Channel (ARC), connect it to the TV's HDMI IN 2 port. If connecting a system that is incompatible Audio Return Channel (ARC), an additional audio connection via Digital Audio Out (Optical) is necessary.

Audio Outputs: The Sony HDTV offers analog and digital audio outputs.

  • Headphone/Analog Output: The TV's 3.5mm analog output can be used to connect a set of headphones or as an audio output to connect your home theater receiver or soundbar system. You will need a minijack-to-RCA adapter (sold separately) to make a stereo RCA connection between the television and your AV receiver. The TV's analog audio output terminal will output 2ch audio from any of the television's source inputs. You can set the TV's analog output to Fixed or Variable. You can set the TV to automatically mute the built-in speakers when a set of headphones are connected.
  • Digital Audio Output: An optical digital output is provided to allow you to connect the unit to a surround processor. The TV's digital audio output terminal outputs a Dolby Digital or 2-channel down-mixed PCM signal for use with an external Dolby Digital decoder or other external audio system with an optical audio input.

I was looking for a nice Sony tv for the bedroom, and was having a difficult time finding one under the other sites that were not very big.

Sony products are the best! Been using Sony TVs for 35 years. Never a problem![ M  Dec 10, 2016 ]
Reputation of the Sony brand.[ K  Dec 10, 2016 ]
Need a new television to replace a Vizio POS and this was the right size with the right features, great reviews and a good price. Crutchfield has a great reputation, too. I've owned mostly Sony televisions over the last 40 years. Their reputation for good quality televisions with few exceptions as well as never having had a problem with a Sony TV made the decision easy. "Free" (nothing's really free - somebody has to pay) shipping was another contributing factor.[ Bruce  Nov 14, 2016 ]
size and price for bathroom[ Robert  Oct 24, 2016 ]
Size which will be important in its location mounted on a wall And most importantly: It does not have a power brick which creates more bulk behind the television[ GREGORY P  Sep 09, 2016 ]
Like Sony TV products. Daughter needed new TV.[ Hector  Aug 18, 2016 ]
Because I have always preferred Sony TVs. Never had repair needs with them and have found the picture quality better than others although this is obviously subjective. ( I actually prefer the picture on old tube tv's.) And while I am disappointed I couldn't find a 1080p set in this size from Sony I know full well that in watching I probably wouldn't notice the difference.[ JAMES  Jul 15, 2016 ]
brandname and size constraints - TV must fit within a cabinet in the living room.[ Paul  Jun 27, 2016 ]
TV fits available space.[ E  May 31, 2016 ]
I want quality. Tired of old possible weakening picture.[ James  Apr 19, 2016 ]
I have purchased Sony TVs for about 45 years because of their superior picture quality. I was sold on this one by Crutchfield's analysis. BTW I have done business with Crutchfield for about 40 years. My first purchase was a car stereo. The owner gave me advice on how to install it in my Audi when I stopped by the Charlottesville office.[ A  Apr 06, 2016 ]
Good quality.[ LOIS  Apr 05, 2016 ]
For the price, there is not a better picture. TV has incredible picture quality - true whites & true blacks. Great size, does take over our living room. It has a headphone output which allows my wife to watch TV late at night and not disturb me or the kids.[ Terrence R.  Apr 03, 2016 ]
