Summary: I purchased this monitor b/c in it's size and class it was very competitively priced with a $100 off coupon (expired 1/1/060). When it arrived, there were 3+ pixels that were dead. Another, right in the middle of the screen, had only green functioning.
Be SURE that you realize the HS95*B* is not the same as the HS95*P*

Summary: I ordered this monitor thinking this was the same monitor as the Sony X-Brite SDM-HS95P/S, but in a different color (all black). Big mistake--had to return it. I suppose the $100 price difference should have tipped me off--but Sony really should have made the model numbers a bit more unique on...
Summary: The HS95P is the clearest LCD monitor I have inspected. After visiting many retail stores and looking over the various models, I decided this one was superior over anything else. The style also looks great on my desk and does not look like the rest. It is simple to set up.
Summary: The bottom line up front: it's worth the extra cash. If you choose to buy this monitor, you will not be sorry. You will notice the high quality and sharp picture within a minute of opening the box. This monitor has that luxury, elite feel to it; you know what I'm talking about.
Summary: I'm a web/graphic designer so a quality monitor is important to me, and after I saw this monitor, I had to have it. It was the best I'd ever seen, and it didn't cost much more than a low end monitor. The images were so crisp and crystal clear.
Summary: The monitor came out of the box and played beautifully. Sony supplies both a VGA 15 pin cable and a DVI cable. It is a great bright display. Was bought to use as a second display on my laptop while at my desk. Excellent graphics and text.
Summary: I am running two of these monitors as dual screens while I write software. My eyes are no longer sore at the end of the day. Excellent text rendering and bright screens make this monitor a pleasure to use. Pros: 1) 1280x1024 at it's finest.
Summary: I liked this monitor so much that I bought two. I have always had picky eyes and always wanted an LCD on my desktop but could never deal with the image quality. Then this monitor came along, very bright, colorful image that no one can be unhappy with.
