Sony’s latest launch for the Japanese market is a 24 inch LCD that’s loaded to the hilt with features. Enter the KDL 24W600A LCD featuring a resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels with an LED backlit panel. The 24W600A is the perfect size TV for those with smaller homes and could even be useful for advertising in stores if need be. Aside from the basic features like inputs for Composite and Component Video, Sony has also thrown in Digital Audio, 2 HDMI ports, Audio output and a separate Audio jack. The 24W600A even comes with an Ethernet port for net connectivity along with the standard DMB-TH / PAL set up. And it doesn’t end there – the TV is also equipped with LAN for wireless net connectivity to help support the Sony Entertainment Network (SEN) which is in addition to allowances for streaming video off of sites like YouTube, Hulu and Video Unlimited. Naturally you’ll also have full access to your social networks as well. With MHL support your smartphone will also able to connect to the TV while being charged and other features like DLNA / DTCP-IP client functionality to Sony’s Room Link will also be available along with Sony’s TV SideView (with the corresponding app). Photo sharing via Sony’s PlayMemories Online service is also part of the deal.
Even at this small size, Sony has not neglected quality of viewing. Thanks to Sony’s BRAVIA engine and X-Reality PRO systems visual clarity and color reproduction should be pretty good. The 24W600A also comes in two distinct colors featuring a white or black frame. It’s equipped with a rather elegant looking table top stand but is also ready for wall mounting if necessary. Stereo speakers are built in to the 24W600A. Another handy feature is connectivity to an external HDD that’s sold separately for use as a TV recorder that’s supported by the Television. All of this (excluding the HDD) is available for just $509 (50,000 YEN) which seems like a great price to pay for a small but fully loaded TV.
