Advantages: Beautiful picture, easy interface.
Disadvantages: The odd useless feature, but other than that brilliant.
I only bought this TV around half a year ago and it's one of the best decisions I've ever made.
For £350 from Costco this HD TV was a very good buy. For an 18 year old student £350 is quite expensive, however I couldn't regret it less.
I only bought the TV to have in my room, watch films with friends etc. And wow. It has definitely done the job. The installation was easy enough, set up within 10 minutes. Around a month after purchasing the TV I decided to buy a wall mount for it, I was quite worried that at certain angles the TV may look distorted or produce a darkened picture. This was not the case.
The HD works fantastic, connecting my Xbox 360 with the HDMI cable produced a perfectly, crisp picture. Even just watching it's built in freeview the picture is quite brilliant. The sound of the TV is also quite impressive, I love the fact that you can alter the sound to your taste, as well as the picture.
32" is a perfect size for my room. I'd previously had a 22" Grundig television, and decided that it was far too small.
The interface that the Sony Bravia uses is very, very, easy to navigate. It includes the ability to alter sound, picture, language as well as giving the user an option to use a USB stick/Hard drive to view pictures, listen to music, watch films and so on.
The remote control is very easy to use, which is common in the Sony Bravia series. Unfortunately there are many useless features. One being 'Theatre mode' which is basically darkening the picture rather than anything else. In my personal experience I've never needed that feature.
Summary: A decent enough television at a very reasonable price.
