    Pros: picture quality on digital sources
    Cons: sensitivity to magnetic fields; scan lines; uneven brightness; price; sony customer service

    Summary: I will start off with the description of flaws and annoyances most WEGA sets seems to share. The sensitivity of this tv to magnetic fields is beyond belief. When my set suddenly developed extensive color bleeding, I could've never guessed that it was ... read more

    Pros: Flat Tube, Triple Comb Filter, Two Tuners
    Cons: Weighs over 200 lbs.

    Summary: Nearly a year ago I bought my 36” Sony WEGA Trinitron XBR. Yes, it cost more than most 36” tube televisions, and no, it’s not HD, but it is flat, bright sharp and colorful. Since the day I bought the television, I have kept my eye on everything else in ... read more

    Pros: Picture quality, craftsmanship, component inputs
    Cons: Requires $1400 in repair after 28 months of ownership

    Summary: ***BEWARE***** Updated review on March 21, 2001. I wrote this review several months ago. Since then a ground wire in my set broke off (Sony is calling it a fluke) and send sparks flying inside my set. The short story is that I need to spend ... read more

    Pros: Picture Quality, Sony, HDTV Ready, S video, Video 1, 2, 3, 4, great speakers.

    Cons: High-pitch ringing noise, heavy, costly

    Pros: better than projection sets
    Cons: text looks terrible

    Summary: I am one of those people who expects to be blown out of the water when I shell out 2grand (more!) for a consumer device. Right out of the box; knock my socks off. This new TV from Sony was, well, okay... which in itself is a disappointing reaction to ... read more

    Pros: After calibration, a stunning picture
    Cons: WAY too heavy. It's still interlaced.

    Summary: This TV has 4 picture modes to select from, and you need them all. You need to adjust just about everything you can adjust for EACH different video source. The picture modes allow you to save all the different set ups. For example, once I had a mode set ... read more

    Pros: Flat Screen
    Cons: Bad display quality

    Summary: I love televisions and cool new technologies. The 36" XBR flat screen priced now at $1999.99 (in most places) and weighting in at 250 lbs seemed like it is the biggest and the best tub TV, so I thought. After I got the television home after two ... read more

    Cons: too-visible scan lines, B-B+ color contrast

    Summary: Shopping for a 36" tube TV, I really had only one criterion: the best picture from, say, 10 feet away. I love the WEGA flat screen, generally respect Sony for its high-end professional AV components, and really wanted to buy the XBR. But after I ... read more
