June 2000 to May 2002

 

Twenty-three months. That's how long we enjoyed this premium TV. On the twenty-third month trouble started. First the right side of the screen went green, the right side red. Then the entire thing went green. Support could not help. The repair...

When it works it works well

When trouble starts it is inconvenient and expensive to fix.

BEST BANG FOR THE BUCK!

 

After searching for approximately 6 weeks I found this T.V. to be the best out there. Although pricey I found that you get what you pay for. Unbelievable picture right out of the box. Sounds good but really belongs within a nice surround sound system....

FLAT SCREEN, EXCELLENT PICTURE, ENOUGH OUTPUTS TO SATISFY ANY MAN

DEFAULT SETTINGS NOT EVEN CLOSE,MUST HAVE DVD TO APPRECIATE WHAT THIS CAN DO

Perfect for Home Theater

 

One of the Best Television set ever made. The picture alone is close to HDTV. Perfect partner with a DVD player. If you don't have a DVD player and not planning to buy one ever, don't buy this television set. Only with a DVD player you can realize...

Excellent Picture and Sound Quality

Weight but not much

Sony KV-36XBR250: 36" Wega - Connectivity Crazy

 

By no means does this TV suck, it's outstanding. It's as good as I would imagine any TV to be when you are shelling out this kind of money ($2000). I just have some issues about lack of video inputs.

Product Specifications

Like The Drew Carey Show's Mini Mimi, the KV-32XBR250 is a smaller version of its mentor, the KV36XBR250. Its flat FD Trinitron picture tube enhances picture definition and reduces screen glare. The vertical compression and 3D digital comb filter maximize resolution. If cut corners leave you feeling cheated, you'll appreciate Sony's Magnetic Quadra Pole, which optimizes focus from corner to corner. Connectivity features of the KV-32XBR250 include one S-video input, one S-Link control S interface, two A/V inputs and two RF inputs. The front-panel S-video and A/V inputs make camcorder and video game setup simple. The component video input allows a direct connection to your DVD player or DTV receiver. Convenience features include XDS (Extended Data Service), which displays the time, station call letters, and programming information transmitted by some broadcasters. Favorite Preview uses the dual-tuner PIP (picture-in-picture) to preview programs on up to five channels while the original program remains on the main screen. Freeze Memo freezes the main screen picture and sends the frozen frame to the PIP window allowing sufficient time for you to jot down the number from a commercial. Sony throws in a set of wireless infrared headphones - ideal for late-night-TV-watching insomniacs.
