Product Description

Amazon.com

Sony's KV-20FS120 20-inch WEGA TV may be the smallest display you'll ever consider using as a home-theater component. Its FD Trinitron tube delivers strong image accuracy, wide viewing angles, outstanding contrast, and impressive corner-to-corner detail. The visually flat FD Trinitron tube minimizes annoying glare from light sources, which enhances contrast. Corner-to-corner details are rendered more accurately because images aren't distorted by a curved screen. Squares look square, straight lines appear straight, and circles are circular.

Velocity modulation (selectable: off, high, low) improves the definition at picture edges, creating sharper images by slowing the CRT (cathode-ray tube) beam's horizontal scanning during demanding work--say, when rendering transitions from light to dark parts of an image--and speeding it up when scanning easily rendered sections, like broad dark areas. The set's digital comb filter further enhances resolution by removing blurred edges between colors and reducing dot crawl (tiny, moving dots of color along a sharp color separation in a vertical line, as in a depiction of a character's striped T-shirt).

Top-of-the-line component-video inputs minimize digital and line-scan artifacts from compatible video sources, while standard composite- and S-video inputs accommodate all DVD players. You can choose between a set of rear AV inputs and a set of front AV inputs for extra convenience when hooking up a camcorder or gaming console. You may also label the set's video inputs and channels for easy selection.

The set produces stereo audio with 10 watts per channel. Its Dynamic Picture Processor circuitry maintains image detail in the very bright and dark areas of each scene, while vertical aperture compensation sharpens picture definition and edge detail on the vertical plane). Other features include tilt correction and Trinitone color temperature control.

Using Sony's channel-fix feature, you can select a specific TV channel (3, for example) for cable box reception, then subsequently control a compatible cable box via the TV's remote without inadvertently changing the TV from your designated input channel. Favorite channel offers one-button access to the last 8 channels you've tuned (auto) or the last 8 favorites that you've preset (manual).

The image is great, the sound is even better.

Now I'm using my son's old Philips (better picture than the Sony) and I would hang onto it except it is so old, there is no hook-up for VCR or DVD.

The Sony KV-20FS120 20" FD Trinitron WEGA Flat Screen TV is a great 4:3 aspect ratio CRT set.

I agree with the other reviewer. If you read the Amazon technical description above you'll see that it is being advertised as having S-VIDEO, but it absolutely does not! (I confirmed the model number on the back of my TV, too.) I talked to a salesperson in Circuit City about this (while I was shopping for this TV) and I was shown LAST year's model which actually had an S-VIDEO connection -but they were out of stock and they don't make that older version anymore. Why this newer one does not have the S-VIDEO connection is completely beyond me. I wouldn't even care except that my TV tuner card on my computer outputs via S-VIDEO so now I don't bother outputting to my TV (because I'd be stuck using the lowest quality COMPOSITE connection).

Other than that big S-VIDEO disappointment, the TV is great. It has two good sounding built in speakers, and the screen is a WEGA "flatscreen" which allows you a wider angle of view (useful if different people are watching the TV from different areas in the room). This is actually a great feature -I didn't notice how easy it was to view this TV from an angle until I started watching TV while I was on the internet a few feet to the left of the TV. Go back to a curved screen TV and you will really strain to watch!

On the FRONT of the TV (under a drop down panel) there is a COMPOSITE connection (with dual Analog Audio connections). There is also a headphone jack under the drop down panel in the front. This is nice.

Note: There are enough buttons under the panel to control the TV if you can't find the remote. (This is important, too!) The power button, however, is outside of the panel so you can turn it on or off without opening it up.

The remote is fine.

Well this set is replacing an aged 13 inch set that has been sent out to pasture. So the difference is really noticable. I had read the reviews on this site before buying the Sony and I am dissappointed that Sony did not keep the S-video hookup with this TV. The component video hookups are great as mentioned by another reviewer but that does me no good whatsoever with connecting my DirecTV box to the TV which is what the majority of the owners wanted to do with the S video anyway. There may be a solution for the griping though. There is a way to get S-video from your dish box to the TV. There is now linked as a product recommendation a Monster cable that hooks up to your dish/cable box as S video and then hooks up to the TV to the composite. It is a solution but the unfortunate thing is that the cable itself is about half the cost of the TV. So it is your call whether or not the cost of the cable is worth it but it is a solution. The TV really is fantastic though but there was a noticed issue with the Redness of skin tones when watching some channels. When watching a simulcast on the three main networks NBC was really bright and the the skin tones were increadibly red. ABC was really dark and CBS was perfect. So you may think that this is an issue with the networks and not my TV. Well you have a point however on our 8 year old Sony in the den the difference during the same simulcast was barely noticable. The redness really decreased when selecting PRO for the video mode so maybe that is a good fix. All in all I am pleased with the TV and I hope that it brings us many years of enjoyment.

I must say, I was a little hesitant buying this TV. It was slightly over my budget but it was worth the while. The image is great, the sound is even better. The remote has a nifty features that allows it to stand upright, which makes it harder lose!

The only downside might be the lack of S-Video, which is mentioned in the other reviews. However, it has component connectors, which is better than S-Video anyway.

If this is the size you are looking for, I highly suggest you get this set, it is really great.

This is a swell TV. Living in an "urban" area, we have a very "small" apartment and went for the 20 inch set which works just fine for us since we don't have a rec-room or Rooms-to-go living room to put it in. DVD's look great on it as does our DV cam and the playstation game machine. It rocks. Not a single issue with it.

The Sony KV-20FS120 20" FD Trinitron WEGA Flat Screen TV is a great 4:3 aspect ratio CRT set. These will not be around much longer. The picture looks great, but the picture for this type of TV's future looks dim. LCD flat screen sets and Plasma sets are taking over the market. LCD and Plasma sets are priced out of range for the average person so I don't get the overnight transition and logic to force you to buy them. A basic Tube TV with a 4:3 aspect ratio like this Sony 20 inch set is clearly a much better choice.

This set has very high contrast, amazing apparent definition for an SD set, exceptional geometry (at least horizontal), easy to use menu system. It is much improved over my earlier Sonys.

HD is simply not needed in the 20" size in my opinion, especially with the composite, or component signal from a satellite reciever (such as Dish Network) and at the 7' viewing distance I'm using with this set.

This set has no S-VIDEO input as does the 24" model, but if you can see the difference, it does have a component input.
