This TV is a buggy mess. Had to be turned on twice every time to make it work, and has now failed after only 24 months. Worst TV I've ever owned.

Excellent bedroom tv
Needed an upgrade tv for my bedroom so 32 inch is perfect size. Was impressed with the fact that if you turn on anything that is plugged into the hdmi for eg a sony playstation the tv automatically switches to that mode and self adjusts to full screen. The 1080 is amazing, sound quality is also really good as most small tvs are very ordanary in that department. Youtube works perfect. If the tv is on Youtube and you turn the tv off then back on again it is right where you were with youtube videos. Normal tv channels work well. Screen mirroring w...orks perfect. I made the decision to pay a lot more for a Sony as its a good brand, anything Sony that ive owned is still working! Another reason is some of these cheap smart tvs just dont work with the internet applications.

Only on audio outlet
I bought this to upgrade to Smart TV from my previous 32” Sony Bravia. On first look it worked really well, logged into home wifi. But it only has one audio outlet that is either an optical or 3.5 mm mini jack. My previous Bravia had both. As a hearing impaired person, I use a Bluetooth device to link to my hearing aids and it works very well - I hear clearly, without the need to have the sound system turned up. The Bluetooth device uses a 3.5 mm jack and my sound bar an optical cable. It is one or the other with the KDL32W660E but either I hea...r through my hearing aids and no one else hears the sound or vice versa. Whoever thought it a good idea to combine the outlets needs to provide a workaround splitter. The set will be returned. Very disappointing. Full marks to Appliances Online for accepting the return and for their very prompt service.

Smart TV functions do not work
This television is garbage. The apps continually fail, requiring multiple manual work-arounds to reset the entire television at least once per week. It fails randomly and each time, requires the apps to be manually downloaded and the painful process of re-entering log-in details for Netflix, Stan, ABC and SBS.
After liaising with Sony technical help for several months, I requested a refund. To enact this, the TV had to be assessed. Over a month later, with no replies to my emails during this time requesting an update, I finally called Sony. T...hey advised the TV was assessed weeks earlier and there was nothing wrong with it. And they didn’t even bother to contact me to let me know or offer a way to return the broken TV. This is UNACCEPTABLE. Sony has details of back and forward correspondence with their technical team detailing the issues. They will not offer a refund. AVOID Sony. They cannot make Smart TVs.

I hate this TV with a passion. It loses channels each time I switch it off and I have to re-tune, issues with the time update, slow lag with buttons.
Decent for the price. Aerial module malfunctioned in 6mo
The TV itself gives good images, the main reason why I avoided LG and Samsung were their anemic speakers and audio processing (super weak vocals but loud in other sounds).
The TV is thin and stable. The remote is classic Sony, easy to use.
I had the unit hooked up via LAN cable and it connected to the web easily. The local AU apps like Nine, 7, SBS etc loaded but it needed a software update and an Internet content refresh to make it work smoothly.
You might wanna change the DNS as well for better connection, but I think that's an iss...ue with the crappy Internet in Au, in general, than the unit. The main issue I had was the free to air TV using the aerial. Admittedly, the antenna were using is an internal one (not connected to the one on the roof), so signal will be weak, but we were still able to watch Channel 7 and 9, for example, with no issies... After a few months, however, the TV modulator no longer works when you scan for channels. Even if we connected the aerial above the roof, only C31 channel comes up.

Love Love Love this TV
When budget is tight I do my homework.. I wanted a good quality TV for my bedroom with Netflix or smart tv capability. Found this TV Sony Bravia 32” KDL32W660E Full HD Smart TV on ebay it was $623 but there was a 20% off day.. so I secured it for $499. For that price I cannot be happier. Picture and sound quality is great. Netflix is one simple button and is almost instant.. no lag like some tv's experience. I did remove the stand and popped it on the wall and its pretty slim. Certainly worth considering - good name - and so far so good.
Easy to use and great quality picture
Purchased this for bedroom and was surprised how easy to set up. We love the quality of the picture and we have it connected to a sound bar. Love it wished we upgraded a year ago now. I must admit we have never had an issue or problem with Sony so hence why we changed from another cheaper brand as you really do get what you pay for. I recommend this TV.
Awesome picture quality
This tv has awesome picture quality, smart tv features are awesome and easy to navigate. Set up of tv took a bit to get used to but once all the setting were figured out the quality of picture and sound were second to none. TV has more than enough USB ports and it can be connected to several devices.
Picture improvement on the old set
The picture and sound are good - being a new tv I expected that. however the operating instructions are woefully inadequate. you guess by clicking on different buttons on what to do (eg to record a program if youre not connected to the internet). as its only been operating a few days - I hope it lasts me a while. my old tv was 17 yrs old so this is a jump into the 21st century for me. so far, touch wood - so good.

Straight forward set up; great picture quality
I found the internet and TV set up straight forward. I'm not a computer expert and so was surprised when I read earlier reviews. All to easy. Great picture quality. I bought the last tv over 15 years ago and paid twice the price. Very pleased with this purchase. Thanks

What a piece of junk.
EPG is the worst I have seen. Always says "No Event Information".
Info button show minimal info on the program.
I have a Panasonic Viera in the lounge, now I wish I bought another one of those for the bedroom instead of this wanna be tv.
Stick to cameras Sony.
Your customer service sucks too.
I bought this TV for $600 and when I went to connect to the internet is just didn't want to know. The set up for it was long and complicated and it was all for nothing. Also when starting a DVD the TV made a loud buzzing sound on the DVD menu screen. I took the TV back to where I bought it and they tested it and it wouldn't connect to the internet for them either. They had another of these TV's in stock but I insisted on having it tested before I'd even consider taking it home. It also refused connect to the internet. So it was a dud too. I end...ed up buying a different brand which does work as a TV should. I have two Sony HD cameras that have worked faultlessly here and overseas. Perhaps Sony cameras are ok but their TV's aren't. I couldn't honestly recommend this TV to anyone.
