Sony Bravia KDL-32L5000 LCD HDTV First Impressions Review
The KDL-32L5000 is on the lower end of Sony's offerings, with fewer HD ports and internet and media connectivity.
Tour & Design
As with just about every other one of Sony's flat screen televisions, the KDL-32L5000 has few features on the front. The LED status lights are in the bottom left corner below the screen. Other than the Sony logo and the Bravia insignia, nothing else adorns the KDL-32L5000.

On the back of the KDL-32L5000 are the bulk of the available ports.

On the right side of the KDL-32L5000 are the control buttons to adjust volume, channel, etc. On the left side of the KDL-32L5000 are some easy-access connectors.

The KDL-32L5000's is glossy black plastic and provides robust, fairly wobble-free support. It can swivel, though this was disabled on the display unit we observed. No official information on the KDL-32L5000's ability to be mounted on a wall, but it appears to have standard VESA-compatible mounting points.
The KDL-32L5000's stand
As is typical with just about every flat screen LCD HDTV in Sony's product lines, the KDL-32L5000 presents a streamlined and no-frills face. The screen bezel is primarily matte black, with glossy sections along the beveled exterior edge and the thin beveled edge that immediately surrounds the screen. It should blend in well with any home media center decor without any issues whatsoever.
