As an entry-level HDTV the Sony Bravia KDL-32L5000 doesn't do a bad job.

32 in.


The Sony Bravia KDL-32L5000 is one of Sony's entry-level HDTVs. It sports a 32-inch display and 3 HDMI ports, but only a 720p resolution. In addition to those HDMI ports it offers a good selection of other connectivity options, sufficient for most home theatre setups. It does lack the higher-end features we see in more expensive models, however, like internet connectivity or a USB port. The 32L5000 retails for $550.
