  • Sony KV-24FV12 FD Superflat 24" Trinitron WEGA TV

    Jul 27, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Looks, picture and sound, inputs, features, flat screen
    Cons: Price, too small for large rooms

    Summary: The Sony KV-24FV12 FD Trinitron WEGA TV has absolutely flat screen. 24” size is well-suited for small-sized and medium-sized rooms. It also looks hi-tech with its silverish-gray finish and sharp angles. Flat Screen ... read more

    Pros: clear & crisp distortion free picture…when playing video games
    Cons: distortion from DVD’s in certain scenarios, to large for one person to carry far

    Summary: INTRO:    8 years ago, my dad won four $100.00 Best Buy gift cards at his job. He gave one to his brother (my uncle), one to my mother, one to me, and kept one for himself. My uncle’s a techno-addict, so he spent his money almost ... read more

    Pros: Picture quality, good for small rooms with requirements for a slightly larger picture.
    Cons: Price premium, lack of a 2nd S-Video or component input

    Pros: Flat screen. Good sound. Stylish.
    Cons: It's not a bigger screen.

    Summary: I've been wanting a new Sony flat screen for two years. I fell in love with them when I saw one across the Sears show room. It was the crispiest picture I'd ever seen. -- needs != wants -- I should be a little honest. My dad gave me ... read more

  • Sony Wega has beautiful picture

    Apr 1, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Flat screen
    Cons: don't lose the manual: need to keep reprogramming the remote!

    Summary: I picked up this television at the Sony Outlet store. I was happy to find a television this flat for such a good price ($400). The 24 inch screen was actually a bonus to me; the living room was too small for a larger television, and I didn't relish the ... read more

    Pros: Picture clarity, looks, great sound
    Cons: None

    Summary: My wife and I pretty much stumbled into this TV unit while we were looking for Xmas presents at an electronics store. There were several TVs in the display/open box items tables, and this TV happened to be one of them. I browsed at several TVs on the ... read more

  • How did we ever live before?

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great picture, Great sound
    Cons: Heavy, hard remote to learn

    Summary: We had seen the Sony Wega in the stores for about a year. We liked what we saw but we didn’t want to spend $500 on a TV, so we passed. Every time we saw one my husband and I salivated, but we walked away. Then, about a month ago we went to ... read more

  • Nice screen, but widescreen movie mode deliberately hidden

    Nov 5, 2001 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Great flat screen, Energy Star, Hidden 16:9 movie mode
    Cons: No component video inputs.

    Summary: It was the obvious choice, but a painful choice. The Sony KV-24FV12 had the screen size I wanted (24"), and the Trinitron WEGA flat screens look the best. The screen quality is excellent. I tuned the thing with a test disc, but little needed ... read more

  • Very Good Overall, Just Needs Some Sound Advice!

    Pros: Great picture, Especially with DVD, Good features for 24"
    Cons: No front S-Video, Some sound quirks in SRS/Simulated modes, Steady Sound doesn't work

    Summary: This was purchased over a year ago for a family member after their UNRELIABLE RCA had seen it's day, and it's still going strong. This is a fairly impressive TV for it's size but a bit heavy for a 24"...81 Pounds!!! Has many features, S-Video, SRS ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Crisp, clear picture, comparable to HDTV .
    Cons: "Steady Sound"(comparable to Magnavox's "Smart Sound") not so "steady"

    Summary: The crispest, clearest picture I've EVER seen! I got the opportunity to compare, SIDE BY SIDE, the Sony Wega to the NEW Phillip's Magnavox (this model was NOT HDTV, and was a 27",Wega look-a-like), AND to the Panasonic wide screen(which WAS a HDTV) as ... read more

  • Best picture in standard TV format

    Pros: excellent picture, sound, appearance
    Cons: expensive, heavy

    Summary: When you mention a flat screen TV people assume right away you're talking about a high definition set (HDTV), but this is not necessarily the case. The Sony WEGA sets offer viewers a flat screen in the familiar NTSC format that's been in existence here ... read more
