8 Reasons Against

Does Not Have a WiFi Connection

The KDL-32R423 does not have a WiFi connection. Most of the other TVs of a comparable age and spec to the KDL-32R423 also do not have a WiFi connection.

We compared this television to all the other televisions with a WiFi connection and we think the Panasonic TX-39ASW504, or the Samsung UE40H6200 which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Does Not Support Smart TV Features

Most TVs that were launched more than two years ago do not support smart TV features. The Sony KDL-32R423 is no exception to this as it too does not support smart TV features.

We think you might also be interested in alternative televisions which also support smart TV features including the Panasonic TX-39ASW504, or the Samsung UE40H6200 which is also higher rated.
