  • What Is Missing With This TV...

    Jan 1, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Everything- the sound, the picture, the easy to use menu, the easier to use remote
    Cons: Not cheap, but worth the extra cost.

    Summary: I challenge you to tell me what Sony forgot in the development of the KP-53V85. In fact, $100 to the person who tells me what they missed. Hey, no cheating! You can search all the available resources and you will not find it. I promise. ... read more

  • I LOVE THIS TV

    Pros: Great picture, wheel casters make moving an ease, easy on screen menu, easy set up
    Cons: None

    Summary: I searched long and hard before plunking down my hard earned money for a big-screen TV. I went to stores, read reviews online, asked everyone I know and basically researched this like a crazed madman. I know that all my research has paid off every time ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Picture and Sound Quality period
    Cons: Absolutely Nothing!!

    Summary: This is probably the only or last review you need to read. I'm not trying to be a pompous, arrogant jackass. Just that I knocked my head against just about every projection tv out there in this size and larger, and I want to save you the scars of ... read more

  • Sony KP-53V85 -- Not This TV, Not Now

    May 12, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Picture-and-Picture
    Cons: Overpriced

    Summary: If a friend asked me about buying the Sony KP-53V85 TV, I'd advise against it. The street price ($2,200) of the 53V85 is too close to high-def sets of similar size to make this set a good value. High-def broadcasting, and programming, is within reach of ... read more

    Pros: Great Picture, Screen Sheild, Sound, Durable, Low Price, Sony
    Cons: Find One...I Dare You...

    Summary: I was in search of the best rear-projection TVs one day, and when I thought of the best, I pictured the KP53XBR300 and KP53V80. So, while checking out the selection at an electronics store, I came across one nice TV. The Sony KP53V85. It looked very ... read more

    Pros: Picture, lots of inputs, solid sound system.
    Cons: Perhaps to big for some living rooms.

    Summary: Being my first experience with Rear Projection, I was not sure what I was getting in to. I have long been a big fan of Sony TV's, and have been watching Trinitrons for a long time. Recently, we found our direct view TV just wasn't cutting ... read more

    Pros: picture, sound, features
    Cons: no button lock feature

    Summary: I agree with hwz1 almost completely. There is one thing that they left off of this tv that is a must for my family - a button lock feature. I have two small children who love buttons. The youngest one is constantly changing the channel or turning the ... read more
