For a television of its size, the Sony boasts very good black levels and shadow detail. The Sony did very well in providing blacks equal to or deeper than those of last year's best 32-inchers, the Samsung E4000 and Toshiba CS120.
Where it fell down, though, was in color fidelity; while greens and skin tones were natural, it was in yellow and cyan where the picture noticeably suffered. Cyan was rendered as blue and yellow was more of an orange.It wasn't even color that was the worst part, but movement. While Sony has tried to amend this with the LED motion feature, the TV looks appreciably soft when movement occurs onscreen, whether the feature is switched on or off.
