Really BAD LCD !!!

X Rellix, Amazon
9 November 2004
  • Summary: The LCD is beginning to go bad. Green hazy areas - comes and goes. I started checking out websites to see if there were any reported problems and came accross the reviews posted here about the major problems with the LCD. I guess trying to get a replacement is not going to help.

Reliable and Sharp Monitor

T.R. Flynn, Amazon
1 August 2004
  • Summary: I first purchased my monitor in March of 2002. It was first used as a monitor for a MacIntosh G4 and now for a Dell XPS. I use this monitor for work and for personal use, for graphics, gaming and spreadsheets. The images are clean, sharp and vibrant.

bad monitor

EA Person, Amazon
26 July 2004
  • Summary: Hi, I'm just adding my 2 cents to this monitor mess. I bought my original monitor not quite 2 years ago. Today, my 3rd replacement monitor is now going bad, and I will be contacting SONY to have a 4th monitor sent to me as replacement.

Great Image after you fix it

PP45, Amazon
18 July 2004
  • Summary: I had problems with this monitor 5 months after I received it. I saw pixels flickering in green all over the screen. It appeared to be electronic noise or interference. I sent it in to Sony for repairs and it was fine for 7 months and then the problem occurred again.

Great monitor!

C. L. PRICE, Amazon
1 June 2004
  • Summary: Hmm, I bought my SDM-81b over 7 years ago, and have no issues with it (I am using it now, to write this review.) I have got to say that they my fellow consumer's reviews below are all flukes, bad luck, whatever. My old Sony LCD monitor is crisp, clean, and clear.

Good monitor - IF it doesn't go bad!

DWF, Amazon
10 May 2004
  • Summary: I've had the monitor about 2 years and it started doing that funky pixel flash thing that others have seen. Very disapointing considering the usual Sony quality. I thought it must be electronics going bad, but thanks to the poster below I took off the covers and was able to fix it.

HP customer support a joke!

T. Burke, Amazon
9 April 2004
  • Summary: I bought this monitor in November of '03. I have sent it back twice and still don't have possession. I was told in February of this year that they would put a "rush" on it for repair. Still haven't seen it! I guess their idea of a rush and mine are two different things. I was a HUGE Sony fan.

Sony SDM S81 bad after 4 years of good Use?

Tim Gordon, Amazon
22 February 2004
  • Summary: My Sony SDM-S81 just recently started the full time green and orange pixel problem. I'll try to Jerry-Rig it as suggested. It does appear to be heat related. 4 years isn't too bad, but it should last 10 years at least for the $ paid.
