This TV blows up

 

Nice looking picture, if still a little flushed of color

Loud startup and shutdown. Blows up after a couple years.

A Television Review

 

This TV is very nice. I've had mine for about 6 years, and it's still great. This is indeed a nice television, great sound and picture quality. The remote is great, and the buttons are very comfortable. However, even a great TV has drawbacks. After...

Excellent TV

Very Heavy TV

Oh my god, it's HUGE!!!

 

Great picture and sound, huge

Really heavy, a little hard to figure out

Oh my god, it's HUGE!!!

 

Before this TV, I had lived with a 12 inch TV all my life. It's hard to even imagine how different our house looked when the delivery men came in with this new 36 inch beauty! It had looked big enough in the store, but put into our living room, it...

Very bad experience

 

Potentially good TV.

High failure rate. (0/2 in my case)

Very bad experience

 

I would like to start off by saying I like Sony as a brand. Sony products show cutting edge technology, with great designs and user interface most of the time. With that said, I would like to share my bad experience with 3 of the KV-27FV16 TVs I had....

Potentially good TV.

High failure rate. (0/2 in my case)

Worth looking at...

 

For the Sony Wega, many people believe that it's just another Sony product in shiny packaging that doesn't pull it's weight. I would disagree with them.

Solid TV for DVD and Video Games

 

I bought this television about six months ago after I saw my friends 36". I didn't have enough money for the one he had so I settled on this. I had just bought a Sony PS2 and boy these two work great together.

Great Picture, Manual 16:9, Solid remote

A little heavy

Consumer review by:

Sony Wega - Pick one up today, but bring five friends

 

I bought this TV with every intention of returning it. My six year old Mitsubishi 35" was on the fritz and I was hosting an Oscar party. I needed a nice big TV for the occasion since I wasn't getting the Mits repaired any time soon.

Stunning picture quality, impress your friends, neighbors, and fellow shoppers

Sound isn't great, _heavy_, doesn't remember your video settings by input
