    Why does the new Sony KDL 'V' series have internal fans and the 'S' not.

    I did not realise that LCD TV's required internal fans anyway. Do other makes have fans?

    It's getting more and more uncommon, but I'm assuming that since they're on the V series and not the S, that it's down to the extra picture processing technology needing more components inside the set and therefore more cooling.

    It's odd, because last years' LCD WEGAs didn't have fans, but it's not really an issue since I've heard they're so quiet anyway.

    Isnt it mainly 32" lcd tvs and above that have fans as they generate more heat.

    Hi,
    I actually heard the fans are quite loud, like a PC fan. It’s a shame Xanderforce didn’t mention fan noise in his great review. Fan noise, is the only thing preventing me from buying a Sony V32.

    Thanks

    The reason i am not buying the V series -> fans, even if they are quiet now they are bound to make noise in the future!
