Summary: Sony SDM-M81 is an older LCD monitor but cost effective for users who need multiple screens on one monitor. In the home audio and video end, it's the best way of using your multi-track recording gear that needs a monitor and using your PC for other projects bye just pushing one button to monitor two. Keeping all this in mine and doubling or even tripling you monitors it's like having six monitors on your work station.
Summary: The image on this display is stunning. Color is better than expected, and backlight is nice and uniform. Dual input for both audio and video, including DVI, is very handy. Switching between sources is just a button away. The easy to use controls at the upper right also give direct adjustment of brightness, contrast, and speaker volume. By pressing a 'Menu' button, you also get a host of other less needed adjustments.
Summary: If you're looking to treat yourself to a new monitor, you won't be disappointed with the SDM-81. At 18" you'll have plenty of bright, crisp display room. Also, with both digital and analog connections you won't be forced to upgrade your video card to enjoy this display. The response rate is between 20 and 30 ms (according to Sony's site), allowing for good picture quality even during fast screen changes.
Summary: Have been using for a month now. Bright and sharp (at 1280 x 1084) with an analog connection. Have not used with digital. Stand adjusts easily. Speakers are weak so you will need a stand alone set. Very happy with it.

Summary: <<Einleitung>> ---<<Technische Daten>> -------<<Erfahrungen>> _______________________________________________ <<Einleitung>> Aus der Überschrift sollte schon ersehbar sein, daß der Sony SDM-M81bei mir im Dauerbetrieb ist.... Ich nutze ihn hauptsächlich für Anwendungen, aber er scheut sich auch nicht mal ein Filmchen abzuspielen oder ein schnelleres 3D-Game ruckelfrei widerzugeben.
Pros: schlichte Optik, Standfuß abnehmbar
Cons: Kabel für Digitalleingang nicht im Lieferumfang !
