Summary: They don't make 'em like this anymore! Flat panel LCD's are clearly the wave of the future, but few can match the quality of the picture on this Sony. We've owned this TV for over 3 years and the picture is still a "wow". With LCD prices dropping, we're considering buying a new LCD TV but it's only to gain an increase in picture size; the picture quality on this 34" CRT is simply superlative.
Summary: It is cheaper then HD LCD or plasma and delivers a great picture. The only downside is that the TV weighs around 220 - 240 lbs. It has a slot for a memory stick to view digital camera pictures, it has two inputs for HD inputs and multiple RCA inputs for game consoles, dvd and etc. Easy to scroll through the menu and change what you need.
Summary: Pros: Picture is outstanding, even for non-HD signals. You cannot find a better picture. I have had it for a month now love it and have no regrets. Features are easy to access and remote is easy to use. Cons: It weighs about 200 lbs, and takes two people to move. The remote not compatible with all DVD players, ie Sharp, which is the one I happen to own. CRT is still the way to go if you want to get the full benefits of HD.
