Sony KV-27FS13

 

Purchased set brand new in November 2001. As of last week, whenever I press the power button the TV clicks on but then shuts off after 3-4 seconds (before the screen ever comes on). In addition, the red "stand by timer" LED blinks 4 times. Service...

When we first purchased the television we were impressed with the picture quality. Very crisp and lifelike colors. Also impressive was the remote. However, after living with the tv for 18 months, we find the picture quality is deteriorating! The colors...

It's a Sony, what else can you say.

 

I bought this as an open box item. I needed a tv and this was a Sony at a great price. Typical of Sony and all the Sony tvs my family has had, the picture on this thing is great, crystal clear. The menu is also very easy to use, as is the remote. I...

Great picture, all the video/audio inputs

Turns itself on if you use the sleep mode

Consumer review by:

Love my Sony Wega. Wait... Wega? Vega? I'm confused!

 

So I'll skip all the details you'll get from other reviewers and get down to the good stuff.

Good looks. Great picture. What else are you looking for?

Higher price than comparable models. TV takes a long time to warm up. Heavy.

A great Wega at a Great price

 

I just recently purchased this Wega at a great price. It is now (August 2002) the "older" 27 inch Wega. But still a great set. It was THE top rated 27 inch TV by consumer reports. It has a super picture and I have not even purchased a DVD to hook...
