Summary: Few available on used market, so value is inflated. True use value for undamaged and 100% functioning is $125-$150 in 2010. Biggest deficiency is this monitor's contrast rating, quite passe by now. Monitor lacks density. Blacks are not very. Pink fringing can be dealt with: careful color adjustment, and limit viewer's angled view. Good color in about 90 degrees only, not the wider angle advertised.
Summary: I have 2 of the Sony 23” monitors (model number SDM-P234/B and run them together with DVI connections. My eyes are sensitive to the nuances of color displays. Sure many LCDs offer shocking realism with bright and very sharp displays. But try using them for Internet or marketing communication type work where you stare at images and text for hours on end. I have a newer HP 24” monitor that is hard to watch as it is so bright.
Sony SDM-P234/B (Black, Silver) 23 inch LCD Monitor
12 February 2008
Summary: Picture quality is wonderful, small footprint but big display with widescreen. I have trusted Sony quality for a long time. I have 98% of display products from Sony. I am not saying because of Sony, but the products are really high quality.
Pros: I have heard many great things about this monitor. Originally I was going to order the Dell 20.1-inch Widescreen monitor, which is roughly 750 bucks, but when I checked on their website and saw a 23-inch... I just simply couldnt resist despite the 1000 do
Pros: First rate quality. Top notch performance for gamers in all game types I've tried. To the normal viewer, all but flawless DVD reproduction.
Cons: If around 1,900 dollars is out of your budget. It may be to big for your workplace.. you need room to sit back and take in all four corners. You may get a twinge in your neck from having to use it so much to look around the 'landscape' before you.
