The Sony KDL-32RE400 is simply flat.
With a size of 32 inches, Another thing we can highlight in the design of this TV is the design of its support. Indeed, it has a simple base, which fits perfectly into the decor, giving you a sense of unity and elegance.The shape of the base is particularly well designed.A mid-range television set that relies heavily on its design and the quality of its materials; arguments that Sony has been promoting for some time now on these products. All this for a price that stays contained.

The display of this KDL-32RE400 is handled with care. This will allow connoisseurs to enjoy a quality rendering in home theater mode. The colours are faithful and deep black.
With this new model, Sony confirms one of its technological choices. The use of the Edge-LED, even though it is a Edge-LED known for the lower quality of its image illumination, which has been favoured for this KDL-32RE400.

This model has a HD display. Which puts it among the above-average TVs in its range.
Sony presents this KDL-32RE400 with a screen of 32 inches; this television is at the bottom of its range.Whatever the characteristics, it is still a beautiful screen. On this point, don’t worry.
Designed with a frequency of 60 Hz, this TV has a better rendering compared to its competitors, in the same category.
In addition, Sony has decided to use its mastery of advanced technology on this device, which allows it to benefit from a high quality HD image resolution.
My opinion to conclude on the display part. It’s in the range, without flourish or excess. An additional choice in the mid-range.
