The Thomson 32hd3301 : what is this mid-range worth ?

Presentation of the Thomson 32hd3301

The firm Thomson is deciding today to launch a new mid-range model with its 32hd3301.
In its 32 inches model , this television offers a definition dedicated to the pictures treatment.
We are dealing with a rather small screen, which is quite unusual with this television maker.
This television is delivered with a  HD resolution.  It could be said that this model gathers all the expected characteristics. Whether we consider its aesthetics or its size, the engineers of Thomson have developed a television admittedly a middle-range one, but a quality one anyway.
Through our review today, you will understand why the Thomson 32hd3301 is ranked among the best TVs of the moment.

The design of the Thomson 32hd3301

Sober but in line with current trends. Thomson has asked its design office to make a product that tends towards the top range, but remains affordable.
The design of the Thomson 32hd3301 has nothing to do with that of the other models in the Thomson D31 series.
A good overall score for this TV; it corresponds to design in the spirit of the times. A quality of materials and a visual aspect that does not make you insensitive.
This Thomson 32hd3301 is simply flat.
With an interesting 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 double base, in which we have a division where each part of the base has its place. With this, the TV is exactly the same on both sides, thus creating a very symmetrical and stylish TV that can be enjoyed in any room.A mid-range television set that relies heavily on its design and the quality of its materials; arguments that Thomson has been promoting for some time now on these products. All this for a price that stays contained.

TV screen presentation Thomson 32hd3301

The Thomson could hardly do better than this 32hd3301 with a Direct-LED screen.
Thomson remains anchored in its technological choices and decides to equip its new television set with it. 
This model has a HD display. It’s better than the others for a TV in its class.
Thomson presents this 32hd3301 with a screen of 32 inches; this television is at the bottom of its range.In the end, it is interesting to note that beyond the size, the screen is well made. A point to add when choosing between this model and other competitors.
Thomson chooses a frequency of 60 Hz, this TV has a better rendering compared to its competitors, in the same category.
Note that with advanced technology, this TV gives you a HD quality picture .
My opinion to conclude on the display part. It’s in the range, without flourish or excess. An additional choice in the mid-range.

TV sound presentation Thomson 32hd3301

A brief listening allows us to see that it does not work miracles. The sound is far from exceptional. That’s enough for TV shows, but not for home theater showings.
In terms of sound equipment, the TV is equipped with two speakers for a sound power of 5 W.

Finally, if we have to summarize the sound of the 32hd3301 Thomson, it is the word correct that comes out.

The Intelligent aspect of the Thomson 32hd3301

Unfortunately on this model there is no smart TV. However, it can be considered as good news; indeed, you should have paid more for this TV set for a use that some of you would not have had. For the others, all you have to do is buy a TV-Box.

Our conclusion on the Thomson 32hd3301

The overall feeling about the product is satisfactory, it is not the best on the market, but it still allows to have an efficient television set.
The choice of Thomson not to include a smart TV system in this 32hd3301 seems a shame to us. In our opinion, many will choose another model among the competitors in this range, that will have an operating system.
This TV has the correct resolution, nothing more. Producing and marketing TVs today in HD is often sufficient and well suited for ‘basic’ uses. But this standard will certainly be outdated in a few years’ time. It is therefore a temporary and/or occasional choice. You’ve been warned.

If there are any positive points to remember, here are 3 interesting ones:
the sound power, the display frequency, the depth of the colours.
