Free Sony Trinitron 27 Inch TV: Who Wants It?

I'm getting rid of my trusty 27 inch Sony Trinitron TV. I bought this thing at Sears about 15 years ago, and it still works as good as new. But be warned, it's very, very heavy.


If you want it, and can pick it up, it's all yours. I'm actively searching for the remote control, but can't seem to find it.

Who wants it?

I had one very much like this from Hitachi, that my friends gave me. For now, I'm using an RCA ColorTrak 2000 from 1983. Decent picture and REALLY GOOD sound.

had the same TV

I had the exact same Sony TV. It still worked fine but nobody wants a heavy, bulky 4:3 aspect TV. I recycled it at BestBuy for free.

I'd rather give a reader a chance to pick up the free tv before I recycle it...

If nobody wants it, I won't take it personally. :)

Not only are the older TV's big and bulky but they also suck up a lot of hydro. You would be surprised.

I also had that tv. and it had picture in picture. Damn, that thing was awesome.

Also, we still have a 32 or 35" at work. That thing weighs a ton and a half.

Teena in Toronto

Four years ago when we tried to give our beast of a TV away no one wanted it. So we ended up having to throw it out.

Thanks for the great offer, Mike, but It's only a 27". I think I'll stick with my 32" Sony Brava series. It weighs in at 122 pounds, and I have the remote for it.

I'm in early spring cleaning mode, trying to create a little room for the new addition.

Minimize, baby... everything must go!

Why are you minimizing your baby!?!

I know, I know, couldn't resist.

I still have a yearning for one of those HD 16x9 CRTs. Their picture has a better "plasma" like look to it. Sony and Toshiba made a few. They are heavy buggers, but the picture is really something else.

@Jody ..

LOL, yep i loved my 50+ lb Dell 19" Trinitron CRT. I found Its picture was "warmer". It lasted a good 10+ years before it bit the dust. I was never happy with flatscreen monitors until i got the IPS panels.

Me. Mine still shows a 3 in the side led panel.

Email address should still be okay. I can only pick this up on weekends though.

I'm sorry man, but after 24 hours and no takers I opened it up to other and it was snatched up quick.

It's gone. :(
