Azusa Foothills, Amazon
13 February 2011
Summary: I have had this monitor since January 2004 and it is still as good as it was when I first purchased it. This is probably one of the best monitors out there, well worth the $550 I paid for at the time.
Summary: This monitor is attractive and has a beautiful picture. I don't play fast action games so I can't vouch for its performance there. But my strategy games work great. Re - the reviewer complaining about dead pixels - do not buy such an expensive item from a place where it can't be sent back.
Summary: I purchased this monitor 7 years ago and have had no problems with it. Has a great picture, good flat panel LCD. Never had any trouble or problem with pixels. The fact is that I am about to buy one for my wife.
Summary: You'll be shocked when you open the box with your new Sony monitor - there's almost nothing in it. A manual, 2 cables and the display. The instructions for connecting are very brief and to the point. Follow them exactly.
Summary: The quality of this monitor is amazing. I purcased the Limited Dark Blue Edition off of Sonystyle.com. The qualiy is simply amazing. It is definetly worth the extra $$$. However I would reccomend the 15 inch version for the typical user.
Summary: I don't think you will be disappointed with this monitor. I absolutely love mine. I shopped around for months before deciding to purchase this one. You know, $550 is not pocket change. I also am an avid Linux user, and I haven't had any issues with Linux drivers and this monitor.
Summary: Found this monitor on the trash pile on the night you can toss anything out. Took it home, plugged it in, and it works great! Don't see any dead pixels. Funny when you read the reviews and some one actually recommended a monitor smaller than 17". Times have changed.
