Buyer's Guide: The Best 32'' to 37'' Televisions
The best smaller TVs
Editor's Choice : Sony Bravia KDL-32W653A
We like the Sony W653. It has an original design, good contrast and faithful colours. It's just too bad Sony spent more effort on its superfluous connected services than on giving it a real motion interpolation function to smooth out the image. Still, the W653 is a step up from the R470.
Affordable 3D TV : LG 32LA620V
The 32LA620V delivers good, accurate picture quality. Contrast, however, is too low (750:1), making the black look more like grey. This TV is therefore restricted to a score of three stars. Otherwise, viewing angles are wider than average and there's a good range of extra functions.
Decent All-Rounder : Samsung UE32F5500
The UE32F5500 offers a lot of features for a reasonable price. The media player reads lots of file types and we love Samsung's connected services. The picture quality is satisfactory, with good contrast and faithful colours... but only if you're sitting directly in front of it, because the viewing angles are extremely narrow.
Budget LCD : Panasonic Viera TX-L32E6B
The Panasonic Viera TX-L32E6B has things going for it. Not only is it inexpensive, but the image is well balanced and has higher contrast than many more expensive TVs. Unfortunately, it also has a high risk of clouding and a below-average response time, making it difficult for us to imagine giving it more than three stars.
