    Aug 30, 2000 by

    Pros: Great picture, great sound, smart remote that is easy to use, warranty, the Sony name
    Cons: I can save you $200 very easily- read on.

    Summary: ....unless weigh 787 lbs. and cannot get off the couch. Unless your butt is stapled to the couch. Let me explain what I have recently found out about this version of the Sony flat screen line. Oh, and do not buy unless you are more of a technology ... read more

  • Top-Notch Picture Box

    Feb 12, 2002 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Superb picture.
    Cons: I don't like the silver color

    Summary: In a nutshell, this is as good as "standard" TV's are likely to get. This set (purchased summer of '01) replaces a similarly-sized but 12 year-old Philips television that stopped showing color. Bummer... That was a great set. This WEGA ... read more

  • HISS! BOO!

    Aug 8, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: It's a Sony
    Cons: Lousy Customer service

    Summary: My bad experience is about Sony Service not the model itself, but if you are considering a Sony you should read this. I bought my Sony KV-27FV16 in January at Video Only. I had a 30 day return option with them (which I now regret not using) and a ... read more

  • I think I REALLY like it.

    Jul 2, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Tube size and its flat shape, PIP, picture and sound quality
    Cons: price, some options on remote

    Summary: This TV has kicked my family room viewing experience to a new level. The size is great. Normally, I wouldn't get all that excited about a 27" TV, but with the flat screen it gives the appearance of being much bigger. It's better than the conventional ... read more

  • A great buy at this time

    Jun 9, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Excellent color, flat screen, tons of features, more than enough inputs for all your equipment.
    Cons: Heavy, geometry slightly off on my TV

    Summary: I picked up the KV27-FS16 from Sears, who price matched Best Buy for $600+ tax. Considering this is a flat-screen Sony WEGA with features galore, I am very happy with the purchase. PROS First, the sheer amount of features of this ... read more

    Pros: Flat screen, good sound quality
    Cons: Expensive & Heavy

    Summary: PICTURE: The picture is very clear, and the flat screen eliminates glare & allows you to view the picture from almost any angle. SOUND: This TV sounds great. You have the option of stereo and surround. ... read more

  • From Worst Nightmare to Best Dream!

    Feb 7, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: unmatched picture quality + flat screen = WEGA, picture-in-picture
    Cons: pricey, heavy

    Summary: For the past 10 blissful years I have been liviní large with a then top-o-the-line 27-inch Sony Trinitron. It was (not unlike myself) all that a person could ask for: large, handsome, clear, and colorful (albeit a bit clumsy). Then one dark and dreary ... read more

  • I'm a bit biased, but...this TV ROCKS!!!

    Dec 28, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Perfect DVD picture, and the picture, did I saw it was perfect???
    Cons: exploits "normal" cable badly...

    Summary: Okay, I'm biased because I got this TV for $569 total. (regularly $699 + tax) so the feelings I have about it, may be a little nicer than the other opinioners have. Either way, I'll write my honest opinion. First things first: if you don't ... read more

  • Why Pay $2500 for a Flat Screen

    Dec 17, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: flat screen, good picture and sound quality, different viewing modes
    Cons: None at this time

    Summary: We needed a good TV for the bedroom so off I go to the appliance stores. I do make it a point to check several locations when making a major purchase. At the third stop of the day I find a TV that really catches my eye. The only problem with it is ... read more

    Pros: Best TV I've ever owned
    Cons: Pricey and very heavy

    Summary: How many of you can remember going from black and white TV to Color TV? (You're giving away your age here!) Going from the old round tube type set to a flat screen set is just about that exiting! My wife and I have been wanting one of these ... read more

  • Why the Sony 27" Wega is FOR you...

    Dec 6, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Exceptional Picture, Quality product, perfect size...
    Cons: Heavy, Sound is good but not great

    Summary: PIP... unless you absolutely want it, I wouldn't even consider it. There are so many functions that exist on the non-PIP version of the 27" Trinitron Wega, you will forget what PIP does. Save the $150 and buy a Sony DVD player. As ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Great Picture, Unique Design (color)
    Cons: Not good for light sensitive eyes

    Summary: "hwz1" said it well. I will re iterate it. This TV is great. But the model that is slightly inferior (I think it is missing PIP and possibly some other feature that must not be real significant) is a much better buy. This is the model I own. ... read more

    Cons: PIP color disappears and channels will not change

    Summary: I purchased this TV for the Flat screen and PIP feature, Price was $699 everywhere I shopped. After muscling it out of the box setting it up on a stand, we ran the setup and were really impressed with the picture and sound. After about 10 minutes, ... read more

    Pros: Awesome picture - sharp, crisp and vibrant colors,
    Cons: none

    Summary: I bought this television for the master bedroom of my house. I was getting tired of that empty space in the cabinet that had been there for the past 7 years. Basically, if I could only use one word to describe this product, it would be ... read more

    Cons: None for me

    Summary: When I first started looking for a new T.V. I was lost. I did not know anything about comb filters, S-video inputs, outputs and etc. When I walked into the store I focused on this Sony. I am not sure why. Well I am happy that I did. This T.V. is great ... read more

    Cons: Pretty heavy (~100lbs)

    Summary: Well, I went down to Fry's Electronics here in the Bay Area looking to purchase the Sony KV-27FS12 TV. The FS12 is basically the same as the FS16, except without the Picture-In-Picture feature. However, since they were out of stock on that model, the ... read more
