Ok so I am going to discuss the TV's I get here as well. Just nabbed a KV-32FV300. I actually grabbed a 2nd KD-27FS170 a few days ago.
So my dad came over and helped me get this in. It was a bit heavier than I expected lol. It is temporarily on a cart until I get a permanent place for it. I may give away or sell that XBR-800 I got a few months back as it is to heavy to move, still debating on this.
The first thing I noticed is this TV as compared to the 27" KD-27FS170, seems extremely picky. I hooked up a couple of model 2 genesis systems and the picture had horrible vertical bars that looked like ass. So I hooked up my model one I use for testing, it is nothing special but light years better image quality. However you can't see in pic but it does have some horizontal waves. I am currently using cheap cables and power supply. Waiting to see if it needs to warm up.
I will tryout my HD Non-TMSS later w/official power and official component cables and see how it looks. As of right now the 27" has a better picture. This picture isn't bad but the 27" is not picky at all, everything you toss at it looks crisp.
Ok so I just removed the 32x and after market cables as those are all I have to connect the 32x with. Using the same aftermarket power but oem component master system YW cables, it cleared up 90% of the wave on screen. I then used an original power and it is a 100% crisp image.
So while the KD-27FS170 does not seem to care much about cable quality, this KV-32FV300 does. Other than being picky about cable/power quality it is the same picture as the KD-27FS170. Sweet TV.
Ok another update, I ran the 32x again but with the original power and it was crisp, so not as picky as I thought. Basically it just doesn't like the 3rd party power supply, the a/v cable is ok. I went back and tossed the model 2's back in w/an original power supply that I used to power the 32x, same result as the 3rd party supplies, ugly vertical bars.
It appears that the model 2 original power 15W is insufficient where as the model 1 being 18W is enough or the model 2's just suck that bad. I always liked model 1's over model 2's anyhow.
