Summary: In all honesty I was impressed with how expansive the SDM-M81 felt. Racking up the res to 1280x1024 usually makes me feel like things are getting too small on my 18.0" viewable viewsonic CRT behemoth. But not on the M81. But I do have a major problem with the dvi interface. They only supply an analog DB15 to analog DVI cable. Why not include a dvi to dvi cable? In my case, I feel it is because getting Sony's DVI to DVI won't work or only works in limited situations.
