Amazon.com Product Description

The designers of the new Sony DeluxePro SDM-X73 17-inch flat panel LCD clearly had three things in mind: image performance, ergonomic adaptability, and reduced power consumption. With sharp 1,280 x 1,024 resolution, 500:1 contrast ratio, 0.264 mm dot pitch, and Auto-Sensing ErgoBright technology, the SDM-X73 offers a stunning viewing solution. And, with adjustable tilt, swivel, and height, plus a wide 160-degree horizontal viewing angle, the SDM-X73 offers comfortable viewing any way you look at it.

Sony's Auto-Sensing ErgoBright technology offers the unique capability of automatically sensing light levels in your surrounding environment and automatically adjusts screen brightness accordingly, from 50 to 300 nits. Not only does this aid viewing comfort, but it also works to save you money. And, if you work in a constant light setting, the ErgoBright technology can be switched off in favor of one of three permanent settings (high, medium, or low).

The SDM-X73 also offers the convenience of digital and dual analog auto-sensing inputs for maximum signal versatility, plus compatibility with both Windows and Macintosh operating systems. Sony's ErgoStand Control System includes wide range tilt, swivel, and high adjustments, and the removable base even enables optional wall mounting. The SDM-X73 comes backed by a 3 year warranty on parts, labor, and backlight.

Amazon.com Product Description

With a wafer-thin screen, Sony's SDM-M51 monitor is perfectly suited for users with limited desk space. The screen measures just over 6 inches, including the sleek desktop base, and the total weight is a mere 10 pounds. The doubly hinged arm supplies a variety of viewing angles, while two cool technologies--Digital FlexRes and Auto ImageSet--maintain clear color separation and crisp imaging from every point of view. When wall mounted, the screen is a scant 1 inch in depth, accenting the most modern décor.

The SDM-M51 has a single cord that handles audio, video, and power and that can easily be tucked out of sight, helping you to achieve that old dream of a clutter-free workspace. For users who enjoy their computer's audio functions as much as the video, the two built-in speakers are a real bonus.Fitted snugly into the lower edge of the frame, they contain the expected Sony quality with no use of additional space. Two onscreen controls supply bass boost and wide stereo settings for a true home theater experience. The other 14 onscreen controls allow users to easily customize their settings and choose from multiple languages.

Sony's limited warranty covers parts (including the backlight) and labor for a full three years. --Jill Lightner ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Best computer purchase I ever made.
I upgraded just about everything on my computer, but this monitor was without a doubt my best purchase. Gone is the enormous 17" CRT that dominated my desk. Now I have a beautiful thin, space saving LCD screen and all kinds of free desk space. The image is outstanding. I'm driving the monitor with a Radeon 7500, and my 3D games look great. Text is crisp and clear and easy to read. I don't see any screen imperfections at all. Let me say again, best computer purchase I have ever made. I could not be happier.

4-0 out of 5 stars 2001: A Desk Space Odyssey
Very slim and stylish. Just how a 21st century monitor should look. I bought this LCD for my home and chose this model in particular because I wanted a lighter, thinner, more elegant monitor... a monitor that you'd actually want to look at... a conversation piece. This model in particular is just that. It's like picking up a picture frame, rather than a 17" TV. OK, maybe it doesn't have many bells and whistles, didn't get #1 best anything, or isn't even the best value. But who cares? I paid the extra to get this one over the cheaper ones because it just looks so cool and it's less than 2 inches thick, so pleasing to the eye. All the other cheaper LCDs are too bulky in appearance and still look like a CRT from the front.

1-0 out of 5 stars ... this monitor!
This monitor WILL die (average life span is about 1 and 1/2 years). Sony WILL NOT replace it (they will only offer to refurbish it). Mine is going, going, gone. It fades to white then colored horizontal and vertical lines. Obvious mass defect in this model. I've seen so many articles online from unhappy Sony customers. You've been warned.

5-0 out of 5 stars We have surround sound, now we have surround sight!
A truly unique monitor for your PC. It's almost like a mini IMAX experience. Having the 16:9 ratio brings another dimension to your web browsing, game playing and--oh, your work too. Have only tried Flight Simulator 2002, game wise, on it and you feel like you ARE the pilot in the real thing.As for web browsing, there is no such thing as having to "scroll" right to see the whole page even with your favorites opened, and if you use the "link" bar get ready to add another 1/2 dozen to it. I'm sure the future of LCD's will certainly move to this format, as we see this is the direction which TV's are moving.With Sony being one of the first to offer this format, I'm sure the competition will be close behind, but will need to run to match the performance of this monitor. Only wished I had one at work too! It helps to have a high performance computer and video card to bring out the best in this monitor.

5-0 out of 5 stars The ideal entertainment display.
Worth every penny. The visual quality is actually greater than the previous CRTs i have owned, and (rare for an LCD) the refresh rate is surprisingly high. Has plenty of inputs on the back, which I have used to connect my computer, vcr, dvd player, and gaming console.

Some may whine about the lack of a TV tuner, but it's actually a good thing: dishing out the extra $40 for one in turn allows you to use plenty of amazing software otherwise unavailable, such as that at dscaler.org, which allows you to view the tv signal in progressive scan (incredibly high quality).

To top it off, widescreen in windows is REALLY awesome. my only warning is, for any lcd monitor purchase, find a retailer that has a good trade-in policy for dead pixels. A+

This has been the best investment for computer gaming.After building a new speedy system from scratch, I was tired of my old CRT monitor.I had heard that the LCD monitors were slower for gaming and was reluctant to invest in one.I was gladly mistaken.The picture, razor sharp text, clarity, vibrant color and high definition are a gamer's dream come true.I LOVE this monitor.It's been worth every dollar.I'm on-line now more than ever.I watch this monitor more than my T.V.

5-0 out of 5 stars Crisp & clear picture
I've been a big fan of Sony monitors. So, when my old Sony monitor got old I decided to get this one. I'm not disappointed. The picture is sharp, bright and incredibly clear. It beats my old monitor Sony Trinitron monitor by a mile. I see details that I missed before. It has brough new life to my digital photographs. What I also love is that it's flat. It takes up almost no room on my desk. My old monitor dominated my desk. It as huge, and my desk wasn't. Now, I have more than enough room. You might think that being 15 inches means that his monitor is too small, but I just bring it in a little closer. And, because it's bright and clear, I'm not straining to read even the smallest text. There is a 17 inch version of this monitor, which might be better for some out there. But, when it comes to picture quality, I haven't seen a better monitor out there.

5-0 out of 5 stars Clean crisp monitor
This monitor has great refresh rates and image quality. Definetley worth it. Game play is awesome.

1-0 out of 5 stars Avoid like the plague
This screen is a marvel - outstanding colours, much better than any CRT I've owned - much better than my laptop TFT! The sounds is clear and the foot print is a fraction of a CRT. However like many others (that I've read about elsewhere on the net) its suffered the fade to black to white problem. This is a fault with the build, and appears to be receiving little input from Sony as even replacements are faulty!
Buy something else, not this.

5-0 out of 5 stars Amazing
This monitor is amazing! You must see this to believe it. It's the most wonderful consumer level piece of electronics ever made!

2-0 out of 5 stars Not Good For TechnoGeeks Or Gamers!
This LCD screen is great eye candy, sure, and it doesn't take up as much room as your basic desktop monitor, and it's a good buy for a person who does nothing on their computer but, say, word processing and web-surfing. BUT, if you are a computer gamer of ANY kind, this is a very, very bad buy for you. It's not just this LCD monitor in particular, it's all LCD monitors- they become a blurry mess in almost any kind of computer game, primarily FPS (First Person Shooters), flight sims, RPGS (Role Playing Games) and just about any game where the action is remotely fast-paced- even in some strategy games, such as
Age of Empires II. Besides the fact that this [thing] costs mucho grando dinero, the blurry-factor is enough to dissuade the wise buyer. Ciao!

5-0 out of 5 stars Sony CPD-L181A
I have to utterly disagree with the former review. I have *2* of these monitors, one at home and one at work, simply because it is such an enormous improvement ona CRT monitor. Your eyes will totally thanks you, believe me.

The picture quality is fantastic - sharp, easy on the eyes.

Overpriced? It's all relative. To me, it's worth every cent, and I am never going to work with a CRT monitor again.

1-0 out of 5 stars way overpriced

4-0 out of 5 stars This is a good Monitor *WHEN IT WORKS*
Be carefull-a VERY large number of these had capacitor problems.
The unit may work for a few hours-or weeks or even months, then will go bad, sometimes intermittantly, manifested by colored vertical lines on an otherwise blank white screen.
SONY at first denied the problem, then sent eveyone a REFURBISHED model.
BEWARE!
Some may try to sell you a unit that works only FOR THE MOMENT, thus cheating you or else the Post Office for "shipping damage".
Others will try to sell you a "Refurbished" Model NOT fixed by SONY.
When it works, this is a great monitor-and the convenience of built-in speakers is great convenience...

5-0 out of 5 stars Good overall monitor if you get a good price
This is a good overall monitor for the price.I bought mine at a reasonable discount, plus the manufacturer's rebate.The picture is good quality, brighter colors than some other monitors I looked at.You can use this monitor on either a regular VGA/RGA graphics card, or one of the newer DVI cards.I use mine four+ hours a day, good picture all around.I recommend this if you don't want to spend the money on one of the newer models.

4-0 out of 5 stars Comes with analog cable only!
I got mine last night, and was a little bit disappointed that it only came with an analog cable (RGB-DVI, the monitor needs the DVI connection). So I had to switch the monitor to analog, although I have a DVI out on my computer (ATI Radeon All-In-One Wonder).

So, you'll have to buy a DVI-DVI cable to be able to enjoy the full digital experience.

SDM-M51D is both analog or digital (includes a switch on the back of the monitor), the SDM-M51 is just analog (I think it comes in black or white).

...

4-0 out of 5 stars I want one but...
The previous review gives this monitor 5 stars *with a DVI connection* but the technical specs per Amazon give the input as analog only.Is the review actually for a different product model, or are the tech specs incomplete?This is a key point for any LCD display, as digital input has the potential for significantly better display than analog.

4-0 out of 5 stars Mixed first impressions, but it's GREAT
I have had the M51/D for about a month. It is the second LCD monitor I had the chance to use (the first one was a Samsung 170MP - a great piece of hardware). The M51/D was tested with ATI All-in-Wonder 128 (VGA connection), ATI Radeon VE (DVI connection), and ATI All-in-Wonder Radeon (DVI connection). Before I tested my M51/D, Nanao FlexScan T2-17TS and Samsung 170MP they were used through the same VGA port (through the same 15ft cable) - I haven't had any quality problems with the Nanao or Samsung. First M51/D tests have been done through VGA. The results were extremely disappointing. There were lack of sharpness, faded colours; I couldn't believe it's a Sony. I decided to switch to DVI. The M51/D became a DIFFERENT monitor altogether. It had brilliant colours and exceptional sharpness. I noticed however, a minimal shadow after letters and vertical edges, though I think it was from the cheap cable M51/D came with. I ordered a quality 10ft DVI-DVI cable through ... and the shadows completely disappeared. The current picture is absolutely PERFECT. I tried switch back to my Nanao - I couldn't believe I used it for years. It is still a great monitor, but after couple days using a LCD switching back is almost impossible. Final conclusion: VGA experience 3, DVI experience 5++, average 4
Note:
There are three types of Sony M51 monitor (M51, M51D, M51/B).
M51D has analog and digital interfaces.
M51 and M51/B have analog only.

4-0 out of 5 stars Fine TV set (and it's mine)
The quality has gone up and the prices are finally coming down on name-brand LCD television sets (unfortunately, this one has gone up 15% since the pre-order price offered by Amazon).Space considerations dictated a unit without the bulky back-side protruberance of a conventional CRT set, so I took a deep breath and pre-ordered this newest Sony model.

To begin with, the main advantage is the shallow case.If you have room for the old cathode ray model, hang on to it and save yourself a small fortune.That said, this Sony LCD unit performs better than conventional sets in some areas and is of at least equal quality in most others.Its superiority is most noticeable where numbers, titles, and animation are concerned--all are razor sharp beyond my expectations.Human figures and flesh tones can be a bit more inconsistent than on a cathode ray tube.Occasionally, the contrast is excessive, regardless of how much I tweak the settings.Also, the "high definition" effect does not necessarily enhance the "life-like" quality of the person on the screen.If anything, it has a tendency to make the figure seem somewhat artificial to my way of seeing.

The set is ready-to-go out of the box, and the remote has minimal but convenient buttons for instantly changing brightness, contrast, and picture size ratios.As for the stereo sound, complete with "sub-woofer" (apparently defined by Sony as a speaker larger than a silver dollar), I wouldn't make purchase contingent on that consideration.The audio is fine, as television sound goes, but I have yet to experience anything out of the ordinary.I tested it with a jazz CD.By boosting treble and bass to the max, I was able to coax from the set undistorted balanced sound with fairly alive cymbals and an audible bass while maintaining an adequately present mid-range.

Even when the power is off, the case is understated, trim, and elegant.Moreover, my cat can't jump on it and make it come crashing to the floor, which was the fate of this set's precariously balanced predecessor.

[Since I wrote the above, my wife has condemned the LCD image, claiming it lacks depth and warmth."Chancun a son gout," I say.At least I won't have to share the set with "Guiding Light."] ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

The G520's short-neck cathode-ray tube design squeezes an extensive 19.8-inch screen into a unit that's less than 19 inches deep, freeing up some much needed space in close work quarters. A tube that's 50 percent shorter than conventional CRTs places all 21 inches of viewing area comfortably onto any desktop.

Image clarity is maximized with a 0.24-millimeter aperture grille pitch, and Sony's Enhanced Elliptical Correction System automatically corrects picture deformation for sharper video. The G520's large screen area packs a palette of resolutions to adapt to a variety of video memory freedoms and constraints.A maximum resolution of 1,600 by 1,200 at 75 Hz can accommodate the most demanding video requirements of your applications, from DVD to CAD design.

Sony's GeoLock circuitry erects an impervious barrier between the CRT and any stray electromagnetic field the G520 may encounter, resulting in consistently stable, uniform image projection. Active Signal Correction eliminates the need to manually adjust the screen settings by instantly optimizing the basic picture controls for largest viewing area. All digital controls are still available, however, at the touch of the keypad below the screen.

The G520 is intended for Windows NT/98 platform communication with PCs, but it's fully Macintosh compatible as well. Dual input control allows for simultaneous connection to two computers, including a Macintosh and PC at the same time. International Energy Star compliance ensures limited emissions and more efficient power consumption. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars got the shakes
My Sony 520's have the shakes too. I've had four of them in my lab and they're terrible. Text and vertical lines appear to squirm, it is extremely unpleasant. I tried everything to cure the problem, I made sure there were no other electronics near the monitors, downloaded the latest drivers, ran on UPS, moved to another building, nothing worked.

I managed to return two of them before and Sony is working on a pro-rated buyback for me, so that's good. I don't understand how these monitors can have this problem!!! They're all used on brand new computers with four different video cards (the better the card, the worse the problem!). Including GeForce4Ti4600, GeForce4Ti4200 and Radeon9500pro.

I'm going to go to LCD's from now on, or another brand if I want the big screen for much lower price (20" LCD's are still cost prohibative).

5-0 out of 5 stars Sweet Monitor
Great Monitor, crystal clear, for drafting / gaming / multi-tasking its a must. Dual input is usefull if you are running two machines, such as a desktop and a server, you can switch back and forth by a simple switch, on the front of the monitor, unlike some other brands.

2-0 out of 5 stars SONY CPD G520 image stability and service commitment lacking
After 3 different units, I have not been able to get one that doesn't have a slight shake. For three months I've sent units back to Sony 4 times, with no satisfaction.

I have three other monitors in the same room, a samsung, a princeton, and a smaller sony, and they are all rock-solid. What does it say about the quality of this...unit if it shakes, sometimes a lot, when these $[money] models from other manufacturers function perfectly.

Sony has told me they are "finished" with me, as it must be my problem, not their equipment. I feel that they should stand behind their stuff, as it didn't work correctly ou of the box. Some were worse than others, and the last one only shakes a little, but still, it's a $[money] piece of equipment!!!

I returned the first unit, one day after I got it, to their local [Boston] repair site, and got back a REFURBISHED unit, which was not only against their own stated policy, but illegal in Massachusetts, and probably other states.

After talking to innumerable people, Scott Lake, the supervisor, decided that Sony was not going to really stand behind their product, and informed me that they would not attempt to find the problem, replace the unit again, or refund my money, as I believe the law in Mass says they have to. I informed him that I was a totally disabled veteran, and this would be a terrible hardship for me, but I was told, basically, to buzz off.

I'm sure that many people are very satisified with SONY stuff, as I was with my GDM 2038...but when you are the unlucky one, you could end up with an eye-bender like this one, and an eye-opening service experience like this one too... almost 3 months of waiting, moving, repacking and reshipping... trying hard to solve the problem, and to be treated like this yeech.... SONY should be ashamed...

When I try to sell it, I'll take a $[money] hit off the top because it is "refurbished" rather than a new replacement.

This is just a word to the wise. The shine is off the SONY star for me.

I think that Small Claims Court is my next stop.

5-0 out of 5 stars Sony's 3 year warranty
I have a Sony 21 inch monitor model 500PS. Since the G520 is the best selling 21 incher on Amazon I just wanted to throw in my 2 cents worth.

I have owned my Sony monitor for 2 years and 6 months. I have never had any problems with it then bang, about a week ago I got a blank screen while crusing the net. I took my monitor into a local shop and they called Sony about my monitor. Sony said to ship it to them at my cost which was on a Saturday and Sony fixed my monitor and sent it back (at Sony's cost) the following Saturday.

Sony's 3 year warranty, service and the company that stands behind its products, ROCKS.

5-0 out of 5 stars The greatest monitor in its price range !
I have had this monitor for two weeks now. My first impression is its ease of setup. I had no sweat adjusting all the setup without even looking at the manual. The "Picture Effect" button on the front menu can help you choose the best display that suits your need. The On-Screen menu is really easy to navigate. I run the resolution at 1280x1024 85Mhz Refresh Rate. Text is crystal clear all the way to 1600x1200. Anything above is starting to degrade but still readable. Playing Quake3 is pretty impressive.

One other plus is that this monitor has 2 inputs so that you can run two systems with only one monitor by switching between each other using monitor's "Input" button.

The only thing that is negative about this monitor is its weight and size. I actually had to pull my desk 10" off the wall so that I can still have space for keyboard and mouse.

Overall, this monitor is the greatest within this price range. I can't think of any other monitor at this price that can compete with G520. ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

If you are a professional in CAD or other graphics, you need to get the most out of your monitor: the best image quality, reliability, and all the extras you can ask for. With the GDM-FW900 24-inch CRT (cathode-ray tube) monitor for Mac and PC, Sony has gone all out to bring you everything that you need. A 160 Hz refresh rate and 2,304 x 1,440 maximum resolution will satisfy any professional, while the 24-inch screen (20.5-inch viewable) provides 21 percent more display area than 21-inch monitors.

Digital Multiscan and Active Signal Correction (ASC) technologies help ease setup, while onscreen controls make adjustments a snap. The flatness of the screen, Sony's Enhanced Elliptical Correction System, and 0.25-0.28mm aperture grille pitch combine to bring you superior image quality. A USB hub for easy hookup to peripherals, an Accurate Image Restoration feature that resets your screen to its original brightness and contrast settings, and a three-year parts and labor warranty provide further enticement. If you demand high-end performance, the GDM-FW900 more than provides it. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Superb CRT Monitor
I've owned this monitor for about three months now, and I must agree with Scott Pope's review in toto.

It IS quite heavy, but I don't mind this so much since I don't move my monitor very much, as a rule. It is also deep, but if you have the space for a 21-inch monitor, then you'll have enough space for this one.

I, too, use the 1920 x 1200 resolution, as I've been unable to find a card that supports the 2304 x 1400 res. Currently, I use an ATI Raedon 9700 Pro and am quite happy with the results. This monitor also supports inputs from two boxes, someting that may be of interest to people like me who have a small LAN but don't want the clutter of multiple monitors.

The controls on this monitor are quite easy to use. I quite agree with Scott that, although the monitor is targeted for CAD pros and such, there are many advantages for the more "casual" user: DVDs are SUPERB in widescreen mode (the monitor having a true 16 x 10 aspect ratio), desktop space is greatly enhanced; and applicatins like Adobe Photoshop and Pagemaker are greatly benefitted by the additional workspace that this monitor affords.

Web pages are no problem, either. Given browser controls, text size etc. are easily controlled, and surfing is actually more pleasurable.

In sum, don't worry about the weight or the space required of this monitor. They're not so much an issue. Just get a friend to help move it, and a sturdy table to put it on, and you'll be fine. The rewards this monitor offers more outweigh (pun intended) the physical proportions of the monitor.

Oh, if you do buy the monitor, be sure to visit the Sony site and get the .inf file.

5-0 out of 5 stars Incredible monitor: stunning image quality and size
Full Review
I purchased the Sony GDM FW900 as part of the ultimate personal computer, which would double as a business and entertainment machine. The picture is INCREDIBLE. The picture quality is superior to anything I have seen, including the Apple 22" and NEC 21".

There is one problem, however, size. It weighs 95lbs dry and is very deep. Moreover, I have not had any luck finding a graphics board or drivers that go up to 2304 x 1440. Yet, the 1920 x 1200 is still pretty incredible.

There are two items besides size and quality, that really make this a profession piece of equipment. First, there is a nice cylindrical control panel (must see to understand) and the use of a profession five BNC video cable. The latter seems to improve image quality (not exactly sure why besides the shielding).

While the monitor is targeted to engineers and researchers, it makes an excellent piece of entertainment hardware that can be used to watch DVDs and HDTV signals.

5-0 out of 5 stars SAweet
I've had this monitor for about a week now and I'm thoroughly happy. You haven't played a game until you've played it on a 24inch monitor! Also, the pitch is .23 - .27, anyways! The screen functions are accessed from a console that rotates the buttons in to view from the bottom of the screen. Altering the look/appearance of your screen is a snap. Also it's possible to have multiple computers hooked up to this bad boy. ... You can have two word documents open and on screen at the same time without having to squint and break out the magnifying glass. If you want the best and don't mind dropping the dough, this is your best bet.

5-0 out of 5 stars Just got it, Its amazing.
This is a great product. I wanted the best. When I baught this monitor, I got it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Sony 24" CRT Monitor is the Holy Grail of computer gamers!
This monitor has to be seen to be believed. An awesome screen measuring 13" by 19" comes to life as you fire up this beast. The screen resolution, clarity, brightness and staggering scale absolutely blows away my former 21" monitors, which simply don't hold a candle to this monstrosity. The superlatives are inadequate to describe what a pleasure this monitor is, as I type out these words.

I am an avid computer gamer and beta-tester, as well as a writer, a pre-law student and a paralegal. I went through a large volume of research before settling on this monitor to replace my aging NEC 21" MultiSync P1150 monitor, which had served me well for several years. Possessing nearly the image size of the 27" television in my bedroom, this monitor is well suited for work or play. I can work on two 8x11 word documents side by side at the same time, and movies, games, trailers, all come to crisp, mind-blowing life. You can actually watch DVDs in their original 16x9 movie theatre format, and if you've seen Sony's WEGA flat-screen televisions, this monitor is cut from the same mold. Featuring a fine dot pitch of .23 in the center, the entire image is very clear and without distortion, even at the edges. Viewing regular web pages and my desktop in the unusual 16x10 format is not as distracting as it sounds at first, and having the extra screen real estate is much appreciated (nearly twice the area of a 21" monitor and almost three times that of a 17"). In short, while heavy (92 pounds) and expensive, I think it is worth every penny. This monitor will allow you to play games such as Quake III and Klingon Academy at 2048 x 1536, a mind-boggling, staggering resolution if there ever was one. As General Chang once said, "you have not experienced Shakespeare until you have experienced it in the original Klingon." This monitor is that "original Klingon," wihout a doubt, and simply incredible.

Don't fret about space. This monitor covers a footprint only slightly larger than my old 21" monitor, and weighs about 20 pounds more. The chassis is molded in a stylish silver and gray body, installation was a breeze and the four USB hubs in the base are much appreciated. I shopped this monitor against several flat panel monitors which cost thousands more (for a smaller viewable image size), making this is a comparative bargain. The image quality is similar to top of the line 21" monitors costing about $1,000, but the extra three inches in viewable image size is worth the upcharge. In short, it is bracketed well between the regular 21" monitors out there and the ultra-expensive flat panels costing up to twice as much. It is also the largest CRT monitor on the market today, as the larger presentation monitors are basically modified televisions with .74 dot pitch, so their images won't be anywhere as crisp as Sony's GDM-FW900. I'm very, very pleased with this product, as it is the Mercedes S-class of computer monitors. Enjoy! ... Read more

Amazon.com Product Description

Sony's second-generation KE-32TS2 16:9 widescreen gas-plasma TV offers elegant WEGA styling with improved performance features over its predecessor, including 38 percent higher peak brightness (though Sony has not disclosed the actual brightness rating). The set includes everything you need to get the set up and running in minutes, from an NTSC broadcast tuner to built-in stereo speakers and even a handy pedestal for tabletop positioning.

The set's native 852 x 1024 pixel resolution (vertical x horizontal) ensures detailed images, while 1,000:1 contrast ratio means you'll see deep black and vivid, dynamic images from just about any source. Use it with a DTV set-top receiver for viewing full high-definition programming (720p, 1080i scaled for 1024 display) or with your progressive-scan DVD player for seamless, flicker-free images at 480p. Onboard Pixel by Pixel I/P (interlace to progressive) conversion reconstructs interlaced (480i) film or video scenes one pixel at a time for fluid, life-like motion along with breathtaking image detail.

With a plasma screen you get vivid colors like you've never seen before, extremely wide viewing angles (wider, even, than those of most LCD screens), and easy placement due to a plasma monitor's slim profile--the KE-32TS2 is a mere 5.25 inches deep, perfect for desk or wall mounting. Brightness tends to be extremely uniform across plasma screens, which are also impervious to the picture distortion and negative color balances that afflict CRT monitors when placed near lighting or sound systems.

DVD mastering introduces a common distortion when adjusting 24 frames-per-second movies to 30 fps video; Sony's CineMotion full reverse 3:2 conversion digitally corrects this distortion, removing the redundant information to display a film-frame-accurate picture.

Sony's exclusive Digital Pixel Generator System transmits and process all video signals digitally. It maximizes the quality of video sources for natural, rich image reproduction, and it's especially effective with high-definition sources.

A Digital Visual Interface (DVI-HDTV) connection enables the delivery of copy-protected, high-definition video content from a compatible set-top box (DTV receiver). Other connections include 2 high-definition-capable component-video inputs, 2 each composite- and S-video jacks, and an RF coaxial input to handle an antenna, cable box, or an older VCR.

The audio system offers 7 watts per channel x 2 for the built-in speakers, a monaural RCA subwoofer output for enhancing your bass through use of a powered stand-alone subwoofer, and TruSurround SRS audio processing, which generates the life-like sound of rear speakers using only the stereo pair built into the television cabinet. This minimizes the need to sit in a designated "sweet spot" while you and your family watch movies or TV. Alternately, a set of left/right RCA audio outs lets you integrate the set with your audio/video surround receiver.

Place the set on a matching AV stand, Sony's SU-TS1, or mount it on the wall, picture-style, using the WB-PW2 wall bracket (both accessories optional).

Note: When used at an altitude of greater than 1,900 meters or 6,248 feet (air pressure less than 800 Hpa), all plasma display panels may generate a low buzzing sound as a result of the difference between the interior and exterior air pressure of the panels.

Amazon.com Product Description

Designed for professional and high-end video applications, Sony's 50-inch PFM-50C1 PlasmaPro flat-panel display is almost all picture. At a mere 49 inches wide and less than four inches deep, the widescreen plasma monitor features 1,365 x 768 resolution, a high contrast ratio (500:1), and high brightness (650 cd/m2). While it lacks traditional home theater connections (HD component-video or DVI), adapters are available for connecting it with various DTV receivers. Nevertheless, the handles a range of high-definition and other formats through a pair of D-Sub 15-pin connectors (analog RGB/digital YUV), including NTSC, PAL, SECAM, NTSC4.43, PAL-M, PAL 60, PAL-N, 1080i, 720p, and 480i. The monitor accepts standard composite- and S-video signals, too.

With a plasma screen you get vivid colors like you've never seen before, extremely wide viewing angles (wider, even, than LCD screens), and easy placement due to a plasma monitor's slim size, perfect for wall mounting. Brightness tends to be extremely uniform across plasma screens, which are also impervious to picture distortion and negative color balances that afflict CRT monitors when placed in close proximity to lighting or sound systems. The PFM-50C1's anti-reflection (AR) coating on the glass protection panel reduces light reflections to ensure clear, high-contrast pictures.

The PFM-50C1 features a unique Sony digital signal processing technology called the Real Digital System. Using RDS, all signals are input and processed digitally, taking advantage of a bi-pixel I/P (interlace/progressive) conversion circuit, which converts interlaced signals to seamless, progressive-scanned images. The display also performs 3:2 pulldown, a handy feature for watching progressive-scan movies in their native 24-frame format. Digital video mastering introduces a common distortion when adjusting 24 frames-per-second movies to 30 fps video; 3:2 pulldown digitally corrects this distortion, removing the redundant information to display a film-frame-accurate picture.

The display also features a plug-in slot for an optional network adapter (model BKM-B30NW), which makes it possible to access and display a range of files, including PowerPoint, Excel, JPEG, GIF, BMP, and PNG. The adapter uses the Windows CE 3.0 operating system and an integrated Web browser for wireless network connectivity through a 10Base-T/100Base-TX interface. (The adapter also provides a Y/C and an additional composite-video input.)

In the audio department, the display comes equipped with a stereo, 7 watts per channel amplifier for use with an optional speaker system (model SS-SP10A).

Amazon.com Product Description

You don't want your graphics to look great--you want them perfect. You want the Sony SDM-HX93, a 19-inch flat panel monitor that provides versatile technology in a quietly funky frame. All necessary cables are included, so you'll be set up with both digital and analog connections right away. And thanks to Sony's optimization technology, the screen automatically adjusts to varying lighting conditions. The result is color that maintains richness and depth even in the full light of day. Stereo speakers are built in, complete with headphone jack--play online games for hours without a single complaint from neighbors or roommates.

The SDM-HX93 also does an excellent job at more serious tasks. With a native resolution of 1,280 x 1,024, 0.294 mm dot pitch, 800:1 contrast ratio, and 450 nits of brightness, the screen provides cleanly legible text viewing along with smoothly transferred video. Wide viewing angles accommodate multiple viewers with ease, while Automatic ImageSet keeps the display set precisely the way you like it.

A softly curved base and shimmering frame create a subtle backdrop, outlining the display without detracting from the work at hand. Sony backs the display with a three-year warranty covering parts, labor, and backlight.

4-0 out of 5 stars LCD is great, speakers s__ks
I've just received this SONY HX93 today. I've been looking at the models at local retailers but could not really see much difference between different LCDs, say, between this one and a lower priced samsung...Until I've seen it on my desk!

pros:
1. nice panel. don't really know who manufactuered the lcd panel, but sony definitely picked up a good one as the basis for the product. I have it delivered to my office and I can compare it to my office 19" LCD, which is a lower priced SAMSUNG 192T. That was a nice one, but not as bright as this SDM-HX93. I am sure a similiarly priced SAMSUNG will probably look as nice, but hey, it's a SONY and it's on sale. $700 is not that much more expensive than $660.
2. nice overall package. elegent looking. cable nicely organized.

cons:
1. the speakers in this LCD are of a much lower quality comparing to how nice the LCD panel is. I can not believe it when I first heard the cracking sound out of them when I turned the volume high. It sounds OK when the volume is low though. And there is absolutely no bass, and since the speaker units themselves are so bad, the SRS WOW system can't do too much to improve it.
2. since it is still quite an expensive model, I will like to see the pivot feature and composite/s-video inputs. Lacking both.

Overall a good product.

5-0 out of 5 stars An incredible LCD
I've been in the broadcast industry for 17 years and am accustomed to working with high quality CRT monitors, most of them Sony. When it came time for a new computer monitor, I decided to check out Sony's LCDs. After months of research, from reading specs and customer opinions, to viewing them at electronics stores, this one came out on top. The picture quality is impeccable...not quite the quality of a top-of-the-line CRT, but it's close. LCDs still have a ways to go to match the clarity of CRTs. But for an LCD, I am very impressed. Yes, this is not an inexpensive monitor, but it is well worth the extra money.

Some things to remember when researching a monitor:

Read the specs. Look for things like -
Is it and Active TFT? Yes is better.
The lower the dot pitch, the higher the picture quality.
Contrast ratio: the higher the better.
Lower response times are better.
Higher brightness is also considered better.

These are admittedly, generalizations. One brand's .25 dot pitch might not be as good as another's .29 dot pitch.

The best thing to do is find some good monitors by doing the technical research, reading reviews, and obtaining information from as many resources as possible. Ultimately, the decision comes down to you and your eyes. View some monitors at local retail shops. Look for text quality, black on white and white on black, (is there ghosting?); check for pixelization in photos and video; if possible, look at a black screen for dead pixels, and at a white screen for hot spots. Some of these may be hard to see at a store, but compare the best you can.

Admittedly, I have not tried gaming on this monitor, and the video is slightly pixelized, though much less than I expected an LCD to be. Text is crystal clear. The only down side to this monitor, as with many Sony products, is their menus. They are somewhat difficult to navigate and the buttons are awkwardly on the side of the monitor, so you have to feel your way around. Aside from that, this is an excellent monitor and I feel you will be highly pleased with your purchase. By the way, after viewing the HX93 at a store, come back here to buy. You'll save lots of money.

UPDATE - After reading the above review, I put the speakers to the test and regretably, found that the speakers do indeed lack quality sound. For visual accurancy this is still hard to beat, but invest in some decent speakers.

4-0 out of 5 stars Not really a gaming monitor
This monitor is by far one of the nicest and most crisp monitors I've seen. The display is very well illuminated, the text sharp and very readable at 1280x1024, and the colors are very, very vivid.

Unfortunately, the monitor was not built for the First Person Shooter (FPS) in mind. I found that the display had a hard time keeping up with the refresh rate of games like Far Cry and Unreal Tournament 2004.

I was using the DVI cable which locks in the refresh at 60hz. I also tried the monitor without the DVI input, but unfortunately it didn't make any difference. Games still appeared to suffer from video lag. :(

This monitor is perfect for everything except for fast paced games.

5-0 out of 5 stars A beautiful monitor
This is a beautiful high resolution monitor that not only has a great image, but also an elegant frame and good sound. It accepts up to three inputs (two analog and one digital), plus 3 sound inputs. I was going to get a lower priced competitor, until I saw the two side by side. This model's colors were far superior. I would recommend that you spend the extra dollars and be happy for years.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best 19" LCD out there
I have two of these now, plus one of the 23" Sony P232-W monitors. I've had the P232 for over a year, running at 1920x1200, with not a single bad pixel or any other problems. I picked up one of the 19" HX93 screens, plugged it in, and was so impressed that I went and bought another one for work.

I spent several hours peering at LCDs from various brands in the computer store, and ultimately decided that the Sonys are worth the slightly higher price tag. They seem to have the best contrast and support for refresh rates, and they certainly look the nicest. My rock-solid experience with the 23" Sony LCD for the past year helped me make up my mind.

If you get one, make sure you change your video card's screen refresh rate to 75Hz. By default, the three Windows XP computers I've used have chosen a 60Hz default refresh rate, and it caused some pixel-fuzzing on the 19" screens. Changing it to 75Hz made the picture crystal clear. ... Read more
