3.0 out of 5 stars Flawed, but worth consideration (see review) 12 Dec 2011
By D. Page
It is very difficult to reach an overall conclusion regarding how good this CRT television is, as I will explain: Firstly, this is not a Sony Trinitron TV of old - it is made in Spain (not Japan), and the quality of internal components will not be as good, as a result. My previous Japan-made Sony Trinitron TV is 21 years old and still going strong! I do not expect this model to last anything like as long, but in fairness, I cannot say anything for sure about it's longevity.

Now to a serious "issue" which you would have to assume affects EVERY KV-21LS30U. I have discovered through my experience with this model that there is an inherent design flaw regarding one aspect of the picture display: During very dark scenes, any very bright areas of the screen will cast faint horizontal streaks of light to the right of the bright areas. The defect is subtle and when watching in bright rooms you will not notice it, but in the evenings, when viewing in dimly-lit rooms, any viewers with a tendency to pay attention to detail will certainly notice it at times. I have played about with the brightness/contrast and found that I can suppress the defect so that it is very minimal, but the drawback of this approach is that I have to have the contrast set a little too high for my taste in order for it to be minimised as far as possible. I've had my one in a Sony-authorised workshop for nearly a year and have had the tube replaced and every other possible cause looked into and it cannot be cured of this defect. The reason I say that it seems to be an inherent fault is that I was in a position to examine a second KV-21LS30U, and it showed exactly the same issue.
