Sony Bravia KDL-32EX523 LED LCD HDTV Review$749.00
Sony has scaled back the analog ports on the KDL-32EX523 to make way for more modern devices that connect via HDMI. You get two analog ports, one composite and one component, for those pieces of AV equipment you hold on to, and four HDMI ports to support high definition connections to an array of newer technology.
Bolstering the main the connectivity of the Sony Bravia KDL-32EX523 are a VGA connection for computers, a standard cable/antenna connection, and two USB ports. With the USB ports, you can playback pictures from a home camera, movies downloaded from the internet and a list of songs right from TV. Songs can be combined with pictures to create a fancy slideshow within seconds.
The Sony Bravia KDL-32EX523 comes with a few options to connect to the internet. There is a wired connection, via the LAN ethernet port, or you can connect wirelessly as this set comes with WiFi built right in. Once you are online, Sony provides a wide variety of DLNA offerings like streaming video, apps, and games.
The Sony Bravia KDL-32EX523's ports are on the back and side of the TV. The spacing is a bit odd, which might indicate that they're using the same plastic molds for a whole series of other televisions and simply drilled holes for plugs or left the plastic untouched. Note, for instance, the huge space between the two USB ports. Aesthetics aside, everything is easy to reach and clearly labeled. The panel swivels on the base for better access.
