The full HD resolution Sony KDL-32EX40B 32" BRAVIA 1080p LCD Television not only creates great looking pictures thanks to its LCD screen and CCFL backlighting, it looks great itself. Its sleek "monolithic" design presents a smooth piano-black rectangle that complements any room. There are no buttons or other controls sticking out of the front.
This set has a lot of great features but the one you may use the most is the one you probably expected the least. Your 32EX40B has a Blu-ray disc player built right in. Whether you want to preserve some space or just don't want the hassle of plugging in wires, you'll appreciate the advanced all-in-one engineering that gives you sophisticated capabilities in a clean, simple design.
You have a lot of programming choices these days, (DVD, Blu-ray, cable, satellite, console games and more) and you watch them under a variety of lighting conditions from theater-like darkness to broad daylight. You want a TV that can deliver a vivid, true-to-life image in all conditions.
That's one reason you'll love your 32EX40B. Its Ambient Sensor optimizes the set's color to match room lighting while LightSensor Technology optimizes the brightness of the screen's CCFL backlight to match room lighting. As a bonus, if you watch in a dimly lit room, LightSensor will even save you energy and money. No wonder this set is Energy Star-compliant.
Another thing you'll love about your 32EX40B is its Internet connectivity. It has an RJ45 (Ethernet) jack if you want to go the wired route or you can use the optional Wi-Fi dongle (sold separately) to go wireless. Getting online couldn't be easier.
Once you're online you can take advantage of BRAVIA Internet Video to enjoy Netflix, YouTube, Slacker Internet Radio and an ever-expanding number of sites and apps. There are thousands of hours of free content in addition to paid content available. (Not to mention a Parental Control system to limit what the kids see.)
You can also use the set's USB port to share content with family and guests. Plug in a USB compatible device like a flash drive and you can enjoy JPEGs, MP3s, home videos and more, right on your TV. Your 32EX40B is also DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance) compliant. This is a recent standard that promises to make media sharing among devices on your home network even easier and more convenient in the coming months and years. So you've got connectivity today and tomorrow.
And if a family member is hard of hearing or just wants to catch the game in the middle of a noisy party, closed captioning sure comes in handy. This set can display both analog and the new digital closed captioning from programming sources that provide them.
