Summary: 7 years ago we treated ourselves to our first (and last) Sony TV. For these 7 years it has been a great tv. Then it would come on and immediately go off. The website indicated that the flashing light on the front may require service but there was some sequences to try to maybe correct the problem.
Summary: I know this is naive in today's disposable mkt, but I really expected this tv to last longer than not-quite six years. Have to say that it was good while it lasted, but in order to reach the back my husband had to build a wooden sled to slide it out of place for access.
Summary: Bought this when I moved into my apartment in late '05, moving out now and need to sell it because it's a pain to relocate cuz of the weight. Sad to see it go though, the picture and sound is awesome and it's quality is just as good as when I bought it.
Summary: I have a really good 40" CRT TV. When the time comes for me to buy a new TV, all that will be available is these flat screen TV's and I will have to buy a whole new piece of furniture to put it in, since I don't want my TV up on the wall, and these new TV's are too wide to fit into standard-sized...
Summary: I bought this TV to replace a JVC 37 inch model that lasted 15 years. The ONLY negative I can say is that the width is taken up by the speakers, so if you have a limited space, this will fall on the short side of filling the hole...nothing a wooden valance (vertical blind variety or ???
Summary: This line of sets has a serious problem--the power board fails after a relatively short period. Mine blew at just under 3 years. If you do not believe me please google "KV32HS blinking light" and see the dozens of failures of these TVs. Unless you can fix TVs, stay away from SONY crt sets.
Summary: We purchased the Sony brand because of its reputation for quality and picture. The picture is great, however, the quality is not. We've started having troubles with the T.V. and our repairman gave us a quote of > $400 to replace two circuit boards.
Summary: The *picture* is the most important thing a television produces. By that measure, this television has a wonderful picture w/plenty of options for fine-tuning it to your visual tastes. I think this tv has excellent neutrality of color. It excels at blacks, skin tones, reds, etc.
Summary: Bought this HD-Ready TV 2 years ago. Excellent picture for regular cable TV. DVD movies on this TV are awesome. Sound is good, but could be better. In my opinion CRT TVs show better pictures quality for high def then LCDs or plasma.
