The Sony KDL32R420B LED TV is an inexpensive TV, but its picture quality is also inferior. The contrast ratio is sub-par, it reflects a lot of light, and it has more motion blur than average. At least it has a good viewing angle.
Overall, the Sony KDL32R420B LED TV isn't a very good TV. Unless you can find it at a steep discount, it is worth spending a little bit more to get a better TV.
The KDL32R420B looks very bland. Its frame and depth are thicker than average, even for this price range.
The contrast ratio of the Sony KDL32R420B isn't very good. In a dark room, you will notice that its blacks are gray. At least the default color calibration is quite good.
While its blacks aren't very deep, the uniformity of black scenes is good. The corners are slightly darker, though.
They uniformity of the gray color is better than average, but it is significantly darker around the edges.
The viewing angle of this TV is good. The colors stay the same even if you sit off-axis.
The Sony R420B reflects more than average, but the reflections still are under control (unlike the LG 32LB5800, which has a yellow tint when you have a few lights on).
This TV doesn't get bright. In conjunction with the higher than average level of reflections, this TV is less than ideal in a room with a few windows.
The Sony KDL32R420B has a long motion blur trail. Fast moving footage appears a bit blurry on it. Therefore, it isn't the best for sports or video games.
The input lag of this TV is good; it won't be noticeable even in fast video games.
