Sony KDL-32W650A 32" 60Hz 1080p LED HDTV
Sony's revamped HDTV lineup is split into distinct product lines with the W models occupying the top rung. The W650A is the most affordable and offered exclusively as a 32 inch model. The KDL-32W650A outperforms every other 32 inch TV on the market, with inky black levels and natural color reproduction making this TV perfect for any videophile. As with every other W series, the KDL-32W650A receives Sony's X-Reality PRO video processor for outstanding performance with fast-moving images.
Though performance is the primary focus here, the KDL-32W650A doesn’t skimp on features. Full access to the Sony Entertainment Network is included which allows users to stream media content from multiple sources. There’s also the capability to control the TV using a smartphone as well as mirroring your devices screen on the TV display. Built-in Wi-Fi eliminates the need for a wireless connection although an Ethernet port is provided.
Connectivity is one area where the limitations of the smaller size are evident; there are only 2 HDMI ports, a hybrid component/composite video input, a dedicated composite video input, and a single USB port. Considering how this TV is most likely to be used as a bedroom or backup TV, the lack of ports is not as big of an issue.
Despite the smaller size, the KDL-32W650A is every bit a flagship model from one of the best manufacturers in the industry. This unit boasts one of the classiest designs found on any 32 inch TV with brushed trim on the bezels and a sleek wire stand providing a stable base. While the price is steep for a 32 inch TV, the extra performance that it buys is well worth the additional investment.
