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.
Sony HS-Series SDM-HS73/H - LCD display - 17" Monitor
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: 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: Purchased this monitor from amazon with free shipping and 25 dollar rebate. It was the lowest price around. Received monitor, it took about 5 minutes to set up looks great would highly recommend this monitor and use amazon for the lowest price.
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.
