Pros: decent picture and sound
Cons: very heavy
I bought this 27 inch TV because the price and size matched what I was looking for - and I got exactly what I expected. This TV has crisp picture, excellent color and the clarity of sound is impressive. Its best feature is the Program Palette Presets (Vivid, Standard, Movie) - these allow you to vary the overall picture without fiddling with each category (color, hue, sharpness, etc.) It doesn't have PIP (but who really uses those unless you are watching 2 ball games at one time) and it isn't a flat screen TV - but it delivers solid performance and because of the Sony product heritage, I expect it will last for years. It's also very heavy - don't plan to carry it home by yourself unless you are a extremely strong and have arms that stretch. People who love television, and want a respectably big TV - but don't want an obscene sized set - should buy this TV.
