Sony Wega flat TVs

Sound+Image - - First Decade -

Sony pi­o­neered flat TVs and re­leased the first con­sumer flat screens in Aus­tralia with the WEGA FT Trini­trons. They still had 4:3 ra­tio screens, and they were still cath­ode ray tubes (ah, some­times we miss CRT). But hey, they were flat, and they’ve stayed that way ever since (not count­ing to­day’s al­ready-de­clin­ing crazy curved premium screens which are, of course, only use­ful for peo­ple that live in a light­house). The page shown here is from our Buy­ing Guide in Fe­bru­ary 2000, by which time many brands had flat screens; Sony’s Wega Trini­tron KV-ES34 had just a 31-inch di­ag­o­nal ‘vis­i­ble pic­ture’, but weighed 84kg and cost, sheesh, $4499.
