Front


The front of the KDL-32BX300 has a clean, simple design. Although more expensive models are going for smaller or invisible bevels, this low-end model has a wide plastic bezel. At the bottom right are a number of indicators for the status of display.

**

Back**


We were not able to get a photo of the back of this display, as it was firmly affixed to a wall and did not come down, no mater how hard we tugged. We suspect that it is home to the ports and other inputs of this display, though.

**

Sides**


On the left side of the display are a number of input ports in a small recessed bay. On the right side are the controls.

  • This is actually two pictures, one of the left and one of the right side of the KDL-32BX300, not some weird, foldable LCD shaped like a book. *

**

Stand/Mount**


We were not able to look at the stand of this model on the demo unit that was mounted on the wall without the stand. But the press shot shown below shows a standard looking plastic stand.

Aesthetics**


The KDL-32BX300 isn't going to win any awards for innovative design, but it is a simple, functional design that does the job.
