having being a manager for an electrical store I new my onions when looking for a tv and at the time this was the best tv money could buy. Around £2000 it is still worth every penny the picture is stunning and the whole look of the tv is excellent. just to clear up the comments about hd this tv is fully capable of hd 1080 as I watch it all the time like this through apple tv connection and hd dvd player. the only thing the tv lacks is a hd in so you just use the component connections just as...

I've had Sony KLV-L32M1 when it first came out 4/5 years ago great picture.
bit outdated now with the latest TV's but still very good picture great depth.
My only problem is my screen just stopped working never a problem til then,
just took it into a sony dealer and you can guess what's coming. Sony no longer make the LCD. So unrepairable what a heart ache. This was £2200 new
put me off Sony I know anything breaks but you would think getting it repaired wouldn't be a problem just cost...

Despite the comments below the Sony KLV-L32M1 TV is HD ready - while it doesn't have HDMI input it does have the full component inputs (the ones on the back that say Y, Pa/Pr etc) which are totally HD. I have enjoyed many hours of HD full on this little gem! (read more)

Bought this Sony KLV-L32M1 TV 3 years ago as HD ready. Purchased Sky+ HD last week not compatible with sky box - very miffed indeed. (read more)

Re comments/questions of HD compatibility, mine had 'stick-ons' that clearly stated "HD ready", and the Sony Australia website shows the KLVL32M1 "HD ready" although it is also "No longer available". I'm considering going for HD, so if there is an 'expert' out there who can explain to me if I can connect through a SCART socket? I suspect the answer will be an emphatic "NO!!" (read more)

Re CivilServant's comments above - although we didn't buy from John Lewis, we first saw it there and the stickers on the TV said it was HD ready - and the salesman giving us the spiel said so. This was 4 years ago when HD was in its infancy - now I just had HD installed and am pretty miffed to find the TV is not HD compatible. (read more)

Overall great tv
It would be interesting to know if you bought this tv as HD ready from John Lewis. I did 4 years ago and now they are denying they ever sold it to me as HD Ready. Sold as HD ready but is not as far as I am aware therefore I do not recommend Sony KLV-L32M1. (read more)

The Sony KLV-L32M1 TV took me no more than 10 minutes to set up and the 1st thing you notice is the picture quality. Even on terrestrial TV the quality is superb.
I'd upgraded from a Phillips with Pixel Plus and the Sony WEGA engine kicks it's bottom. Watching DVD's is a joy, I 1st sat through Spiderman 2 and the detail in the pictures is amazing.
Sound is good, but if you are serious about sound use a surround sound system, again connection was simple.
The TV weighs less than 18kg... (read more)
