Excerpt: I needed a location monitor large enough for a small groups of clients (video village). Running off battery wasn't a requirement, nor were many of the higher end features like waveform or SDI.
So far, this unit has been great.
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.
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. A++
Excerpt: very close in function and performance to Sony's bigger brother 2450W - but a quarter of the price!
very nice to have native 1920x1080 monitoring and all the basic you need in a broadcast monitor- blue only, underscan, ext sync
only downside, slight backlight bleed on top and bottom of screen, only...
Excerpt: I bought this product 4 years ago when it was around $1500. It was worth every penny. Combined with my Blackmagic Multibridge Pro I get real time HD playback in 10 bit.It also doubles as my HD TV.
