I think I want this tv. However I watch 95 percent regular cable/replay tv.

I will probably get hd but there are only a few channels thru rcn. Would this tv display analog/digital cable as well as say the sony kv-fs320 ?

HDTV is cool and all but truth is I would watch very little of it. I also definitely want a 4:3 tv as that is all my wall unit can accomodate.

I have this T.V. HDTV is great via component input.I play digital and analog cable through composite input.Obviously digital is better than analog-but both are quite good.My cable provider is Comcast.

I know hd would be great. But I am interested to know if it can display digital/analog cable better than a top analog only set.

If its about the same I could live with it...

I own the 27HS420. Your comment is exactly the question that I had a month ago. I went to CC and watched for a couple of hours side-by-side, their analog stuff with the 27HS420. I could tell you my opinion, but it is NOT your opinion...which matters the most. Let me just day again, that I now own the Sony 27HS420.


Do a search on here.

Sounds like a sales strategy to sell more sets while you are still wowed with the HD picture. They don't want you to see the set with a SD picture in case it is less impressive. The best thing would be to tell the sales manager why you are taking your business elsewhere. I just take my tivo to the store and ask them to plug it into the set I want to demo. This works great as I am very familiar with the material on the tivo. I've had a few protests, but when I insisted that I would not consider buying if I couldn't plug the tivo in.. every store has relented so far.

I have owned the 32HS420 since mid-August and can't say a bad thing about it. Your PQ will depend greatly on your input source. I have Comcast and the quality of SD is great.


You may wish to cailbrate your set also as many of have done. It will improve the PQ even more.

I am quite satisfies with the PQ of my 27HS420 w/ SD material. It is one of the principal reasons I bought it over any other direct-view CRT. I think the 4:3 build of my unit, the relatively small screen (not a LOT of stretch) and Sony's technology has combined to make the SD (I have Directv) material MUCH more watchable than my Sony 50" LCD (HD also). I think the best analog of comparable size do a little better job w/ SD, but not by much. My picture on SD is a little SOFT on some material, but very, very watchable. I love this unit as a "betweener" that can handle SD material as well as offering AWESOME HD P.Q. (of course).

Bottom line, you have to be happy with it...but I know that I am, and like most on here, very "picky" about P.Q.;)
