  • Sony Quality, Fair Price

    Mar 28, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: This TV delivers both picture and sound at a competitive price.
    Cons: None so far.

    Summary: The old TV just wasn’t working anymore. It lasted almost ten years and survived six moves, but its last couple of months was difficult. We had to put the TV (and us) out of its misery and buy a new set. So we broke down and bought one, of course we ... read more

    Pros: Excellent picture and sound, Sony quality, works great with DTV box
    Cons: Could use more A/V inputs, very heavy (although most big tube sets are)

    Summary: I bought this television in December 2000 as I was upgrading from a Panasonic 20" that I dearly loved. I had originally planned to buy another Panasonic in the 27" size, but Sears was out of that particular model. Much to my surprise, I was offered ... read more

    Pros: 27 Inches
    Cons: Horrible speakers, Unrefined colors, Text isn’t leveled

    Summary: When I used to think of the name Sony I used to think of quality, but boy was I wrong. My parents had a Sony 32" television and I thought it was a good TV, until I started to realize the problem of it. The 32" TV that my parents have was purchased in ... read more

    Pros: Close to flat screen, great picture quality

    Summary: I purchased this TV 3 weeks ago to replace my 7 year old 27 inch Toshiba. I am limited to a 27 inch TV because that is all my entertainment center will hold. I read all the reviews I could find on this TV and decided but it based on the great reviews, ... read more

  • Who needs Wega?

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Excellent picture quality (terrific color), stylish remote, price, brand, (virtually) flat screen
    Cons: Slight tilt problem, S-video circuit problem

    Summary: In my opinion, this is by far the best 27" TV on the market (non-HiDefinition). For $400, I got a Sony (terrific brand name) TV that is as flat as a TV can be without being deemed a flat screen. I also think the remote is very stylish and very easy to ... read more

    Pros: Ease of use, excellent quality.
    Cons: None!
