Summary: wonderful monitor, I spend up to 8+ hours a day on my computer during the week, and this is all the screen you could ever want, i love it more than my 19" Trinitron which, besides being a pain in the @ss to clean, but also weighs some 55-60 lbs and is just begging to be dropped when moved anywhere. the joints on my trinitron always took minutes to adjust when this LCD takes just seconds.
Summary: I've had this monitor for 3+ months and will never look back. I've used the best Barco calibrated monitors for color retouching and this blows them all away! The trick if you are using the analog hookup (as I did for the first month) is to use the configuration utility on the provided CD. The Utility will help you get rid of "Waviness" and uneven color in a matter of seconds... But, if you are going to pay..
Summary: GREAT monitor! It's the envy of the office at work. Bright, sharp picture, dual video inputs sync'd with dual audio inputs (I switch between a custom-built Athlon WinXP RC2 workstation and a Sun Blade 100), very well designed. The (weak) stereo speakers, headphone jack override (woo-hoo!), and on-screen volume control are very nice touches.
Summary: Have had this monitor for about a month now. For the first week it was fed an analog signal via a Diamond v770 graphics card and images were very good but some text was slightly smeared/faded. Color was excellent as was contrast. Backlight was factory defaulted at 100%. Way to bright for me. Easily set to user liking. So, after the first week I decided it was time to upgrade my video card. My decision was ATI's All in Wonder Radeon AGP card which has the DVI output.
Excerpt: Der Flachbildschirm von Sony ist mit 18,1 Zoll nicht gerade einer der Kleinsten. Ich besitze dieses Gerät selbst und habe damit bisher nicht die geringsten Probleme gehabt. Das Gerät ist in ZWEI Farben erhältlich, in Schwarz und in Grau. Mein Exemplar ist Schwarz, was den Preis nochmals nach oben schraubt, da dies eine Sonderfarbe ist. Also etwas Ausgefallener, was sehr gut zu einer Schwarz-Silbernen Computer Ausstattung passt.
