Excerpt: I am an editor working from a home studio, using prem on an iMac. Up until recently doing mostly off-line work, so was using a cheap LG HDTV as a monitor. However more and more requiring to do my own grading, for a lot of stuff that ends up on the web. This monitor is great! gives you the pro features at a reasonable price. The hdmi input allows you to output direct from Imac and gives you a rec709 set-up in your display settings.
Pros: Compact Design, Easy To Use, Highly Compatible, Improves Performance, Lightweight, Professional Quality
Excerpt: We bought 4 for our production company and 2 of them developed a hum in less than 2 months of use, both have been sent in to Sony twice and neither of them have been fixed. The hum is unbearable in an edit suite, a complete waste of money and no support from Sony.
Excerpt: In use for monitoring SD-SDI signals (transcoded to HDMI), program feeds from studios, encoding and playback of material. Size is great! screen is bright and clear. Not dark and green like SONYs usually are. It's not FULL of features, but it can be calibrated, has "blue- only" for set up. Only problem is the "optional" SD-sdi feed is ridiculous. It shouldn't hang off the back of the monitor.
Pros: Easy To Set Up, Lightweight, Sharp Image, Vivid Colors
Excerpt: This monitor was purchased to monitor our church services as opposed to using an HD TV..colors were right on,at least for our purposes,probably not what you want to do critical color correction...that being said,the picture was absolutely beautiful and that's the main reason we decided to keep it....we liked to many options to adjust picture...monitor feels solid, it has some weight to it, and looks professional, if that matters to you.Considering the price vs.
Pros: Adjustable, Easy To Set Up, Sharp Image, Vivid Colors
Excerpt: ok, so I have had it now for awhile and once I got it correctly dialed in works great. I can now now what my final result will look like on any HDTV for color balance. I didn't have any photos last time, and I just mounted it over my other monitor to make it easier for viewing. Don't use HDMI, RGB allows for more persice controls over dialing it in. You can use HDMI but I was not able to get what I wanted. Mounting bracket was only [$] and well worth it.
Excerpt: Just a FYI, I just got one because I needed something for editing other than my monitor. It handles colors well, what I mean is you can correctly set it so you can check your levels. What I am not really pleased with is the HD quality, even with the camera connected direct its ok, not as sharp as I would like make my video looks like. So with that I its the only sub $1000 monitor out there and believe me I have been looking even used and couldn't find one for this price.
Excerpt: I have this baby hooked up to my Final Cut Pro edit suite. It is fed by a Matrox 02 box via HDMI cabling and it looks great. It has all the features I need to monitor my video is 10-bit HD. It has lived up to all my expectations and, try as I may, I cannot find anything about it I do not like.
