Sony R400

Usage Ratings
This tv has been discontinued.
It was replaced by the Sony R420B

If you can get past its limited viewing angle and motion blur, the Sony KDL-32R400A offers great contrast and very little reflection. This makes it suitable for both daylight and nighttime viewing.

Test Results
  • Low input lag. This is great for playing fast-moving video games.
  • Good picture quality. The contrast ratio is above average and it doesn't have a lot of reflections.
  • Slight amount of motion blur on fast moving footage. This isn't an issue when watching TV shows or movies, but could be when playing video games.
  • Narrow viewing angle. You need to sit in front of it to fully benefit its picture quality.

The Sony KDL-32R400A is a good buy, except if you have a relatively bright room. With the lights off, the picture quality is excellent, but with the lights on, it reflects too much.

Questions & Answers

This TV and review is really dated. You need to review the W650, which is its 32" successor with excellent picture quality.
This TV, like the W650, was released in 2013, so it isn't dated. The R400 is an entry-level TV, and the W650 is mid-range. Both should get discontinued soon to make place for 2014 models.
