  • Sony KV27FV16 - Read This Before You Even THINK of Buying It

    Oct 15, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Nice 27-Inch TV, Good 27-Inch TV
    Cons: Questa Mucho Dinero

    Summary: If you have to have the fanciest, and the most expensive, of anything, the Sony KV-27FV16, which sits proudly atop the 27-inch sets in Sony's new line of Wega (pronounced Vega) TV's, might be just the thing for you. With a street price around $800, the ... read more

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Excellent TV
    Cons: Very Heavy TV

    Summary: This TV is very nice. I've had mine for about 6 years, and it's still great. This is indeed a nice television, great sound and picture quality. The remote is great, and the buttons are very comfortable. However, even a great TV has drawbacks. After these ... read more

  • Very bad experience

    Jun 17, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Potentially good TV.
    Cons: High failure rate. (0/2 in my case)

    Summary: I would like to start off by saying I like Sony as a brand. Sony products show cutting edge technology, with great designs and user interface most of the time. With that said, I would like to share my bad experience with 3 of the KV-27FV16 TVs I had. ... read more

  • Worth looking at...

    Jun 5, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Picture quality, ease of use
    Cons: Weight, price

    Summary: For the Sony Wega, many people believe that it's just another Sony product in shiny packaging that doesn't pull it's weight. I would disagree with them. I was in the market for a new TV, and I knew I wanted a 27" screen. From the start I was ... read more

  • Solid TV for DVD and Video Games

    Pros: Great Picture, Manual 16:9, Solid remote
    Cons: A little heavy

    Summary: I bought this television about six months ago after I saw my friends 36". I didn't have enough money for the one he had so I settled on this. I had just bought a Sony PS2 and boy these two work great together. Pros: This is a solid tv for watching ... read more

  • Mmm...Wegalicious!

    Pros: The flat screen, appearance, and number of inputs
    Cons: Price

    Summary: This tv was purchased to replace my 13" Admiral tv. (For those who don't know, Admiral was Montgomery Ward's house brand tv...eww!) Anyhow, this tv is something special...27" of silver flat-glass goodness. This tv nearly bankrupted me, but I really ... read more

  • Excellent, if over-priced, television

    Mar 7, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Incredible picture
    Cons: Expensive, heavy(!)

    Summary: I had a 9 year old 19" JVC. It was a decent, basic, television. When I decided to upgrade, I immediately thought of getting another JVC. I had heard about the Sony Wega sets, but thought they were just plain too expensive. Also, I did some research and ... read more

  • Best value for a tube TV.

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Speakers are outstanding, 16:9 mode is heavenly.
    Cons: This TV needs to go on a diet. Slight ghosting image.

    Summary: UPDATED INFO: The rest of this review is intact, I just thought I'd mention that "ghosting" is noticeable on the screen. Ghosting happens when a white image moving across a black background leaves a whitish "ghost trail". Move your mouse really fast ... read more

  • over rated and over priced

    Pros: looks good in the store
    Cons: just not in my house

    Summary: Of all the affordable tvs best buy and circuit city had in stock the wega certainly stood out from the competition. The picture looked much more well defined the rest. The big clunky remote was the only thing i didn't care for. Rushing ... read more

  • Very clear picture, and flat screen

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Very clear picture, colors are very nice
    Cons: Very heavy, expensive, poor remote layout

    Summary: I bought this TV to replace my junk Funai TV. I must of read 4 dozen reviews, of all kinds of TV's. I've been to the stores, and every time I went there the one thing that always caught my eye was this TV. Of course sticker shock always sent me packing. ... read more

    Pros: Great picture, Great Features, Great looks, Easy to use, Easy to hook up.......
    Cons: High Price

    Summary: In being limited to a 27inch TV because of space consideration in my apartment I was initially weary of the task of actually finding one that I would be happy with. Yet, after coming across this great model from Sony all my feelings were changed. Sure ... read more

    Pros: No problems out of box, Great Sound and 16:9 aspect, nuff said!
    Cons: weight

    Summary: I wouldn't call myself a "Videophile", but I like quality. Maybe Sony released some buggy Wegas the first round but the 2000 models are fantastic. The speaker placement is ideal, with 2-15watt speakers and a whole menu of audio options. I ... read more

    Pros: Nice looking picture, if still a little flushed of color
    Cons: Loud startup and shutdown. Blows up after a couple years.

    Summary: Wow. Well after 3 years (one year unused in a climate controlled storage unit) my KV27fv16 decided to call it quits. The screen shrunk up to the top of the screen for a few seconds, then disappeared and the unit shut down. The Sony repair man simply ... read more
