  • Top of the line big-tube HDTV

    Jan 7, 2005 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: great picture in HD; very good sound; all the connectors and settings one might want
    Cons: bulky and heavy; needs HD tuner

    Summary: It's BIG The first thing to be aware of about this set is that it's very big, bulky and heavy. It weighs around 200 pounds, and it is over 23 inches deep. Compared to an old-style TV it may seem even deeper because it has a rather thin front ... read more

    Pros: Great picture.
    Cons: Sonys reliability stinks!
    Planned obsolescence?

    Summary: Your not alone. Mine crapped out too just under 5 years. The problem seems to be the same, screen goes black or very dark green then it shuts itself down, searching the web this seem to be a common problem with these sets. A bunch of BS if you ask me. If ... read more

    Pros:

    Excellent picture.


    Cons: Weighs a ton.
    Well documented problems. Do your research!

    Summary: The picture is great. It fits perfect in our corner armoire and all you see from the front is what looks like a nice flat screen television. I LOVED IT...until it stopped working a little over 5 years into our purchase. In fact, I'd purchased the 5-year ... read more

    Pros: Reference quality picture. Cheap!!!
    Cons: Big, very, VERY heavy. Might be unreliable.

    Summary: OK in today's world of fast turnaround electronics this set is something of a dinosaur and no longer available as a new unit so, you might ask, why am I reviewing it? The simple answer is that these sets are now turning up quite commonly on the used ... read more

    Pros: Very good picture while it last --- ONLY 3 MONTHS
    Cons: SONY doesn't stand behind their product.

    Summary: The TV was a little over 3 months old when all of the sudden the screen looks like a big fat brake light. I paid over $1100.00 for this set on Aug 26, 2005 and the problem started Dec 11, 2005. I called Sony and Sears (where i purchased the TV) and ... read more

    Pros: I heard that Sony TV's were the best, I could be wrong!
    Cons: Pop goes the TV then no sound!

    Summary: Heard Sony TV's were the best so I bought one without the warranty, shame on me. Had my Sony KV-34HS420 for a couple of months or less and my wife told me that the TV makes a popping sound when turned on and then loses the audio (no sound) and channel ... read more

    Cons: Audio could be better. The set is quite heavy, two people to move it.
