Product Details

Sony 36" FD Trinitron WEGA Digital TV, Model KD36FS170

FD Trinitron® WEGA® Flat Screen Technology is the basis of Sony's award-winning line of visually flat televisions. The KD36FS170 FD Trinitron set delivers incredible image accuracy, wide viewing angles, outstanding contrast, and corner-to-corner detail. The visually flat FD Trintron® tube minimizes annoying glare from light sources, which enhances contrast. Detail, corner-to-corner, is rendered more accurately because images aren't distorted by a curved screen. Squares are square, straight lines appear straight, and circles are circular. It's all in the details with the KD36FS170 FD Trinitron® WEGA® Flat Screen from Sony.

        Comments about Sony 36" FD Trinitron WEGA Digital TV - Silver Finish:

        Despite all the hype, I am stickingwith tube television until the prices come down and the reliability goes up on all of the types of designs.

        This television fits the bill and then some. Make sure you get a durable television stand, this thing is heavy. The picture, sound, and set up are very easy. I trust the Sony name, I have another one (different model) that is over ten years old and still going strong.

            I love this television. I was looking at the same 36" model [...] It looks great in my small living rooom.I love that this TV displays both analog and digital television. Digital looks as clear as HDTV, close anyway. My friends and family get blown away when we watch a movie or play Madden 06 (PS2).
