Summary: ... this TV has been awesome. With the component input, I still get an awesome 1080i wide screen picture and although the screen could fit a 4x3 it just makes the rest of the screen black so it looks perfect with the 16x9. Still going with no issues.
Summary: I've had this TV for almost 10 years now, am being tempted by the new technology out today, but unsure if it would be much better than this set.

Summary: I've had the Sony KP-53HS10 rear projection TV featured prominently as our main entertainment set since I bought in new in May 2001! In that period of time, I have had no problems whatsoever with the TV (how often does this happen!), and it has been flawless in every regard.

Summary: I've been a fan of rear projection TVs since I bought my first one in 1989. I'm not rich by any means, and although it seemed like the set cost the earth at the time, it was still one of my better investments.
Summary: If you are mainly watching standard cable TV than the Sony KP-53HS10 is an excellent choice. Why? The scan doubler makes analog broadcasts look super. It upscales 480i to 960i. Same is true for VCR movies. Watch some DVD's? They'll look great w/ component input.
