June 18, 2008 Massive screens are not the answer for everyone in the flat screen TV market and energy conscious consumers might be persuaded to think small with this new 32-inch addition to Sony's Bravia range which is set for release in Japan.

The Bravia KDL-32JE1has a power consumption of 89W (86 kWh / year), almost halving the 160W figure specified for the company's XBR Series LCD Flat Panel and a significant improvement on the already efficient 134W KDL-32J1 series.

The unit also features (1366×768) resolution, 2500:1 contrast, 2x HDMI inputs and a 178 degree viewing angle.

Available in Champagne Gold and Silver, the KDL-32JE1 will be released in Japan at the end of July at a price of around the ¥150,000 mark (USD$1,385 at the time of publication).
