Pros:Great picture and sound quality

Cons:HEAVY

The Bottom Line: This is a great TV ~ it really is :-)



We needed to replace the TV in the bedroom. We really didn’t have any certain TV in mind only that it fit into the existing cabinet. After searching both online and at the B&M stores, we ended up with the Sony FD Trinitron WEGA KV-27FS100 27 in. Flat Screen Television and months later, I am still happy we did.


GETTING IT HOME AND SETTING IT UP

This is an easy television to set up and you can be watching it soon after bringing it home! I will mention that unless you can EASILY lift 100 pounds, you will need some help getting it inside and on the cabinet. (Read more of this on the dislike section below) But, once you do get it in and out of the box, it is a simple process.

Along with the TV you will find the remote control (Y195), the 2 remote batteries (always nice), the user's manual and the warranty information. There are plenty of AV plugs to set up all of your "items" from cable to camcorders to Direct TV to your DVD players and gaming consoles. So, once you hook everything in you add the batteries to the remote, plug in the set and turn the set on.

The remote is a nice size, has all the regular buttons (not a lot of extras) and is easy to use. The picture settings are preset and we immediately got a perfect picture but, if you don't, you can set your own. All in all a very quick and painless set up!


WHY BUY THIS SET?

While we were looking, I read and heard all of these stats ~ on this and that and on why each TV was better than the last one. I am sure if I were buying a larger TV, for the entire family, I would have been more concerned. But, I was just looking for a decent 27 inch TV for the bedroom. We'd only be watching a few shows and/or DVDs per week on it and I was just looking for a TV that looked nice, had a good picture and nice sound quality. We found that, and more, with the Sony FD Trinitron WEGA KV-27FS100

I am a far cry from a TV expert but I can tell you what an “everyday” person likes and dislikes about this set.

LIKES ~

• Flat Screen
This is nice because the picture is clear from every angle. I would really like this on our regular sets, as there is both distortion and glare when viewing from the sides. The flat screen eliminates this.

• Input Jacks
Okay, I don't know a lot about these other than they are where you plug everything in. All TV's have them so why do I even mention them? Because not only are there a lot of them, they are in the front AND in the back. I LOVE this and it is something I will definitely get for our other TV's as they get replaced. The reason this is such a big deal to me is that the kids have different gaming consoles that they play. I don't allow them to stay hooked up to the TV's in their rooms and so they have to be hooked up and then unhooked to the TV's in the playroom or familyroom every time the want to play them. This is a major pain and something has to be unplugged to plug the console in. But, with the Sony FD Trinitron WEGA KV-27FS100, you can just use the plugs in the FRONT of the TV and never have to disturb the ones in the back ~ how great is that? This also works great for the camcorder.

• 16:9 Compression
I like this feature! This television set has both manual and auto set 16:9 compression for viewing wide screen dvds. You know how when you are watching a wide screen version of a movie on a regular set and the sides of the movie get cut off? Well, with this handy little feature, they aren't! This is a good deal for us because our main TV is a wide screen and so now, we can also watch those same movie versions on this set!

• Sound
While the picture quality is EXTREMELY clear, the sound may not be as great, but it is very good. It has side speakers that deliver crisp stereo sound. I have no complaints about the sound quality at all.


DISLIKES

• The Weight
The Sony FD Trinitron WEGA KV-27FS100 is really heavy ~ just under 100 pounds! You wouldn't think it was that heavy but believe me it is! There is no way that I could lift this baby and move it around so fortunately, it is in a place where it can stay put. If you are looking for a set to bring out occasionally and then put back to store, I would look at a different set.



~~ ** ~~ ** ~~ 2BUZY'S FINAL THOUGHTS ON THIS SITE ~~ ** ~~ ** ~~

I really like this television! Not only does the Sony FD Trinitron WEGA KV-27FS100 have a crisp picture and great sound, it looks good! I like the flat screen so much more than the set we had before.

I also the extra input jacks, for the gaming console and camcorder, in the front so much that I will make sure all my next television has them. My only complaint is with the weight and since the set is not moved, it is a minor one. The cost is okay, I've seen both higher and lower but I am VERY happy with the set so that makes the price less of an issue.

I have given the set a low 5 stars and if they make a lighter, less expensive version, I would move that to a high 5 stars. Saying that, I would highly recommend the Sony FD Trinitron WEGA KV-27FS100 27 in. Flat Screen Television!

** There is a V-chip control which is a nice option to have.

** The television can be set up in English, Spanish or French
