The TV is really heavy and you need to make provisions for that or you could have catastrophic problems. A friend of mine had an older non-HD version of a Sony 36-inch XBR literally bend his cabinet. Ultimately, he needed to rebuild the entire unit, which included uninstalling his entire home theater for two weeks. You just need to enter into a purchase of such a set knowing you will not be hanging a 200-pound TV on the wall. You know what set to buy if you only have four inches of depth for your TV.
A 34-inch television is not the biggest picture on the market by any stretch. You should carefully consider how far you are going to sit from the set before making your decision. If it is going to be more than 12 or 15 feet, you might want to consider going with a different set, because 34 inches gets a little small at a certain distance. If you are going to sit closer, consider the quality that you are getting for the price you pay. It is easy to trade off a little screen size for a fantastic picture.
The value of this set is stellar. At about $2,300, the Sony KV34XBR910 is a runaway winner. When properly set up, you might not be able to find a better picture anywhere at nearly any price. It is bright and able to reproduce color better than any plasma or LCD I have seen to date. It has a number of forward-thinking properties, like DVI inputs and fine-pitch CRT technology, which make this set a worthy investment for years to come. If you love movies, HDTV and broadcast TV and want the kind of picture you would expect in a multi-millionaire’s home theater, consider the Sony KV34XBR910 with the highest priority when investing in an HDTV.
