We've had ours for close to 10 years now!! It has been a fantastic TV over that time but our recent move to BD means we need full HD now :(
AS far as TV's go this thing will probably go performing for another 10 years with exceptional standard, well worth the premium we paid at the time. It has been a constant work horse (especially with two kids) and still performs brilliantly.
Thank you SONY. (read more)

I have had my KV32FQ75u for over five years now with no problems unlike some. I found the 100hz wide screen excellent quality only to be let down by the sound (need a separate hi-fi).
The remote is simple & easy to use with all the functions you are likely to be using. (read more)

I have only ever bought Panasonic before this and have never had any problems. My old Panasonic set is still working fine and it's nine years old. The reason I went for a Sony other than it's looks was the reputation it had for excellence. I for one will never consider buying a Sony product again having witnessed what they accept as minor problems. (read more)

Sony KV-32FQ75(S) - Sony, who came to my rescue after all the preceding events, were wonderful, if slightly ineffectual. The faulty tube not only had the afforementioned scratch but also an arc-shaped black circle in the centre of it. The shop it was from refused to accept any responsibility before going belly-up within 1 year so I moaned to our local Sony dealership and to my rescue came a very nice Sony person who agreed to replace the tube. But the new one is also faulty and has on the... (read more)

I have not had the set long and despite having read all the bad reviews I still went ahead and bought one. So far I have not been disappointed. The set just had all of the features I wanted and then some. It was a very good price especially now that they are end of line. All manufacturers and I guess all sets have some problems, it just seems that the KV32-FQ75 has more than most. (If you do get a bad one, you can always send it back under warranty). However, if you do get a really good... (read more)

Lets get one thing straight - The (S) and (U) suffix means nothing more than is a stand supplied or not - the nice man from Sony UK told me that. I bought this TV after reading the reviews - some good, some not so good. Buying this TV online for a grand seemed a bargain though, so I did. Lo and behold, the TV I got had the banding problem that others have described. However, Sony have been excellent in their customer service - call them rather than your retailer is what I found to be... (read more)

I've had my KV32FQ75 since Feb 2002. Its already been back to the shop to try and find two seperate faults. The first fault was the speakers would make a cracking sound then I would lose the sound for a few seconds. The sound also favours the left hand speaker (I was told this was in the allowable range!). The second fault was when we had a continuous loud electric clicking sound from out of the back of the T.V and the picture pulsed in time with it!! This lasted for about 10 minutes at a...

When our 12 year old Sony TV started showing whites with a strong pink hue and needed a new tube, it was time to replace it with a new widescreen TV. An afternoon spent comparing different sets convinced me that the KV32FQ75 picture was one of the best. I eventually bought it for a reasonable £995 (end of line) in September from John Lewis mainly because of their no quibble after-sales service and free 5-year guarantee. I'm not disappointed. It's a 'U'... (read more)

Now on my second Sony KV32FQ75(S) TV set which seems to be worse than the 1st as far as the focus goes. I've now also got the added feature of the "buzzing" sound, so you could say i'm a little disappointed with the tv. Now considering options for an alternative make/model and have been looking at both Panasonic and Toshiba or a refund. (read more)

I've had two of these Sony KV32FQ75(S) sets now and both sets have had the same problem of terrible text focussing on the left side of the screen. Bearing in mind the cost...very disappointed. I give up and have decided that I'm going to go for a Philips instead. (read more)

I bought my Sony KV32FQ75(S) TV from Jessops (John Lewis) in Nottingham for £999 (inc. 5 year warranty) as our first move to widescreen.
Didn't read these reviews until after purchase so I was delighted to find I had got the "U" model instead of the "S" I was expecting.
No problem with scrolling bands but left-most 3 inches of screen was badly out of focus. Expecting to have to accept a replacement machine I started the after-sales process - taking today off to wait for the engineer. To my... (read more)

The Sony KV32FQ75(S) TV is now an obsolete model so price down by £300 at Comet. No buzz or banding evident and it's still going after the first week. Super picture quality and considering features the remote is not too complicated. VFM excellent considering reduced features on replacement model. (read more)

The Sony KV32FQ75(S) TV has a superb picture... when it's working. My first set lasted less than FIVE minutes. A clicking sound (like a chattering relay) came from the back of the thing-then no picture.
Recovered the pic after half an hour but fault continued to recur.
Second set PRECISELY the same failure, this time after four days.
Back to the shop-good as gold:collecting the beast
and delivering another set. Guess what - it's NOT a Sony. (read more)

Clearly Sony have had problems with some KV-32FQ75 TV sets, which is disappointing for a set in this price bracket.
Personally, having returned two Panasonic 32PL10s due to sound and picture problems, I am very happy.
The set was a Sony refurb., hence the price, but came with a 3 year guarantee and is absolutely mint consition.
The picture is stunning - wonderful colours, devastatingly good contrast and virtually flicker-free when using the DCF 100.
If I could guarantee that you would... (read more)

The reason for purchasing a Sony TV is that the reviews in various magazines were very good and you cannot go wrong buying a Sony. My KV32FQ75(S) TV is suffering from banding, bubbles in the glass and washing out colours. I have been very disappointed and I dare not swap it out as I might get another lemon. There is a drastic lack of shielding at the base of the TV thus rendering the shelves redundant as the magnetic fields from the DVD plaver and Video wash out all reds at the bottom of the...

I recently bought this Sony KV32FQ75(S) TV from my local Alders (£1289 inc 5 yr warranty) and have so far I am very happy with the set. I have a U suffix set, not the S and do not see the horizontal scrolling. The demo in the store had a poor picture quality until the asst. used a good quality scart cable from the DVD player. TIP Dont use cheap cables, get good oxygen free individually screened cables and keep them to a reasonable length. When you spend this much on a TV don't ruin it with a... (read more)

After reviewing the other comments on this tv set and despite the obvious problem with the traversing lines I still purchased this television and guess what, it had traversing lines. This was only on DVD play back though. I contacted Sony immediately after having excellant customer service from them before, yet again they have been well above expectations. Within a few days I had a call back saying the relevant part had been ordered and they'll be in touch shortly. 11/10 Customer... (read more)

I would definitely recommend that anyone who is looking for a 32" widescreen TV stay well clear from the Sony KV32FQ75. I had 3 in total and all had the above bad points. When you consider what the TV costs this is very disappointing. (read more)

Our Sony KV32FQ75 (S) TV set is now 18mths old. I had it replaced after 1 week due to buzzing noise. The replacement also buzzed. To be fair this is only annoying if watching teletext with the sound off. We bought this set for its picture quality and it is superb. (read more)

I'm afraid I have to report similar problems with the Sony KV32FQ75(S) model TV.
I'm now on my third and I too have had enough. All 3 sets haven't been unable to tune BBC2 or ITV. 2 of the 3 have had blurred Teletext on the left side of the screen and sound which favoured the right speaker. It's simply unacceptable for a set which cost around £1600.
I would strongly advise everyone to avoid this set. (read more)

I bought my Sony 32-FQ75 TV from John Lewis, Manchester. Incidentally, I had returned a Philips 36' 9525C because the picture was so astoundingly poor when watching sports. After my third FQ75 and an admission that there is a problem with this model I now have the Sony 32-DX100 (The bands are still very faintly there but I am happy with the set. John Lewis provided faultless customer care by the way). If you can find an FQ75 without the bands then the picture is fantastic! (read more)

Have my second Sony KV32FQ75(S) TV set and both have more than one fault. The scrolling bands as described in the previous review are on both sets. Engineers could not fix.

Also found that many frustrating owners having this problem on... (read more)

I've had this Sony KV32Q75(S) TV set for about 3 months now and I did not expect a Sony product with so many faults as this set. Looks like Sony QA needs examining or maybe it was dropped as it does weigh around 75kg!
I have experienced colour purity problems with this set since day one. This manifests itself as a large yellow patch on one corner of the tube. I was told by Sony that this was normal! Secondly the left hand side of the screen is out of focus. This can been seen when in... (read more)
