I found a free Sony KV-27FS120 WEGA Trinitron television on Craigslist. The TV is a bit of a beast at just under 100lbs (45kg) but with the help of a friend I got it home.
I picked this unit up for retro-gaming using my original Nintendo Entertainment System. (NES) Since this unit is entirely analog, there is no display lag and it handles the native 240p resolution of the Nintendo perfectly.
The TV itself was in fantastic shape. The picture is bright and sharp. Cosmetically the TV just needed a little cleaning. I turned it up in the service mode and it provides a great picture. The only issue is some mis-converged corners but I am unable to fix those without some "permalloy assemblies" the service manual mentions which you need to install around the neck.
I was able to find the owner's manual and factory service manual for this TV online.
Some stats on it:
