Summary: I bought this Sony LCD Monitor 1) because of its good price 2)because I like Sony computer monitor in this shape and I was looking for it everywhere for a used one and couldn't find it but in eBay.3) because I had one before just like it.
Summary: I just started having issues with this monitor that I have been in love with for 4 years. As I was doing inquiries and troubleshooting, I thought I would check to see if I could update the drivers since I have recently migrated my new system to Win 7. In two emails that I have received from Sony's Esupport system, they have stated that they will not be creating drivers for this monitor to work with Win 7.
Summary: This monitor is nicely made. Even the back cover and the rotating stand piece in the back are made of good-quality material and not mis-fit or manufactured on the cheap. The power button on the bottom of the screen has never broke or malfunctioned, and the monitor looks great after three years of overuse.
Summary: The picture quality is exactly what you expect from Sony...outstanding. I purchased this monitor six months ago thru Amazon and have been very pleased with the display except for the screen turning off intermittantly(lasted a few seconds). Last week the monitor would not power on. I called the Sony toll free service number and four days later I received a replacement(factory refurbished) via UPS with a prepaid shipping lable for return of the defective unit.
Summary: I searched and hunted this monitor for the best price for months. I first saw this monitor at Best Buy. I was so impressed with the quality of the picture. I was sold on "XBRITE", but I hesitated at the price of $399.00. I watched the ads for months, checked other retail outlets, searched other online retailers, and went back to Best Buy on several occations to see this monitor, hoping I could catch this item as an "Open Box Item". I am very happy with this monitor.
Summary: very bright. good quality. one dead pixel after about a year, no additional dead pixels in 2 years. a little slow in sensing the input from the video card when the machine boots. the automatic adjustment of brightness and contrast is not working very well, always too bright, i never actually noticed any automatic adjustment depending on room luminosity.
