Sony Bravia 46” and 32” LED Internet TV

We just got Sony’s Bravia LED Internet TV 46” (KDL-46EX520) and 32” (KDL-32EX420) recently. Both TV’s have identical specs and features besides the display size. The Bravia EX series has Full HD 1080p with Edge LED TV with X-Reality picture engine (that’s their technical term for making videos more awesome) Internet video, Skype and Youtube support.

Sony Bravia Internet TV Notable Features

  • Full HD picture with crisp detail (1080p) and LED backlit
  • Skype support.
  • Twitter and Facebook App Widgets.
  • Internet browsing (No Flash support though)
  • Apps to control your TV (Google Play)
  • Recording TV shows to an external hard drive

Getting a 32” LED Internet TV for just 7,000 seems like too good to be true right? It was. Sony's promo ended last April 15 though we were still able to get some last remaining stocks this week. The Skype kit and wireless dongle was also included as a freebie.

The 46" KDL-46EX520 normally has a suggested retail price of 80,000 Cash and the 32" KDL-32EX420 retails for 28,000 Cash. We got both TV's, wall bracket and other accessories for less than 80,000! Wow.


Input / Output Ports

  • 1x RF connection input
  • 4x HDMI input (1 Side / 3 Rear)
  • 2x USB 2.0 input
  • 1x Ethernet input
  • 1x Composite video input
  • 1x Component video (Y/Pb/Pr) input
  • 1x PC in (D-Sub) + Audio in (Stereo Mini)
  • 1x PCMCIA input
  • 1x Analog audio input
  • 1x Optical digital output
  • 1x Audio output
  • 1x Headphone output

Remote seems clunky but the layout of the controls are good. I just don’t like the cheap plastic feel.

There was a free UWA-BR100 wireless dongle included with the purchase that gives the TV a wireless option besides the built-in ethernet port.

Skype CMU-BR100 camera and microphone that resembles a small Kinect lets you make and accept Skype calls in the living room. Pretty neat.

I haven’t own any new Playstation device except the first generation but the UI of Sony’s Bravia resembles those of the newer Playstation and PSP’s. I like the subtle animations and the ease of use using the remote.

Have to run both through it's paces still. But safe to say that right of the box, and for the price, the Sony Bravia Internet TV works great.
