Frankly, it looked like a pile of crap, which was a shame, because it wasn't in comparison to what was around at the time. The CDTV looked pretty cool, the CD32 just looked cheap and terrible. Take a look at all the competition at the time, CD32 certainly was no catwalk model.
Come on!! The CDTV looked like a goddamn VCR! No personality whatsoever. I do agree that the CD32 was nothing to gawk at. It was a truly bland and forgettable design.
