Sony in my eyes have always been one of the best visuals/sound companys around for years there products are reliable and of good quality and I have had no quibbles or hesitations in purchasing one of there products. OK I will get on with the op now. Sony HMD A220 FD 17" Monitor is another new product which i have recently purchased.It is more than a standard monitor its good looking with a silver finish to the front. The screen is A flat Trinitron to say the least its that flat the screen seems to curve in rather than out.This is not a bad thing its soothing to the eyes you notice the diffrence immediatly the monitor is turned on and you bootup windows.It has a refresh rate of 88fps @ 1024 x 768. The next good thing to note is it has 5 usb ports 4 are for connecting your usb devices too and one at the back of the monitor which connects to your usb port on the back of your pc if you have one (if not the usb function on your monitor will not work but hey its still a great monitor).I have alot of usb devices and the monitor handles the lot no conflictions just works 100%. There are 2 buttons on the front of the monitor a power button and the control button which is a directional button its a bit fiddly but you don`t need to use it much once you set it to how you like it. On the top of the monitor is a slot large enough to place your cd case that you are using at the time in your cdrom drive(a bit sad really but hey someone got paid loads for that idea). The monitor does not have a swivel base like most. It has two legs on the front and an additional bit to place on the back to make it level which is what I have choose to do but it depends on your own preference. So all in all for the price which is around £270 you get a built in usb hub to your monitor and a flat screen which is far more cheaper than the wafer monitors and better for your eyes(being totally honest i have not seen much diffrence between this mo
nitor and the wafer monitors at twice the price).Go check out this Sony monitor im sure youll be impressed has good reviews everywhere even on dooyoo !!now!! he he . Last of all before i go there is one thing that you may not be too impressed about you may know as the screen is so flat you see 2 lines going horizontaly across the screen (approx 4" from the top and 4" from the bottom) THIS IS NOT A FAULT its the shadow of the wire that make the screen so flat and fine tuned and you only notice it on a plain white back ground and it does not interfear at all with your day to day operation of your pc its a small price to pay for up to date techy gadgets .
Well what can I say about this monitor? I have stumbled on a real beauty here. I bought this monitor about 8 months ago and I am incredibly pleased with it. I had been looking for a new monitor for a while and when I saw this one I fell for it. The tube is flat and when I say flat its flat and has a maximum resolution of 1600x1200. However I wouldnt recommend it at this as I found 1024x768 great at 100hz refresh rate. The control Functions are done by a single toggle button which I found very easy to use. There are all the usual features to adjust like picture width and height and loads more extras that you won't believe. The monitor came with a driver diskette which went in easy and made a nice change from me having to use standard Windows drivers for my monitor. I would have liked it if the input cable would have been detachable but you cant have it all as this makes life easier. The picture is excellent and the colour excellent too, it really is all you could ever want in a monitor. The only gripe I have is with the reset button on the front of the monitor underneath, on 2 occasions I have moved my keyboard and hit it sending the monitor back to factory settings but this isn't a major hassle when you think of all the plus points about it.
Sony EPD E200 Multiscan This Sony 15"monitor gives a superb bright, well-focused image with little visible distortion or convergence. The control "joystick"is excellent once you get used to it which takes a little time. Currently I operate mine at a resolution of 1152 X 864 at 78 Hz w ith no problems whatsoever. The technical back up from Sony is superb as is their customer service. All this allied to the very reasonable price make this monitor a superb buy. Don' t hesitate buy one.
Ah, it seems that in all my reviews I have to have a littlke word at ther beginning about the title. Well, I'm referring to the sharpness of the picture quality, but then again Sharp is a company that makes monitors. A pun, get it? Well, I'm glad that's cleared up. Sorry you folks out there that knew all along...! Well, where to I start? The Sony Multiscan CPD-E200 is a fantastic monitor, especially for the cash. Ok, it's a little steep, but then again it's Sony! And with the Sony name you can be assured that you'll get pure quality. What makes this monitor stand out from the crowd I hear you ask! Well, this little beauty has a 100% flat screen, so you don't get those nasty little "lens" like effects around the edges. That's what Sony says anyway, and I can vouch for them that it's the truth. My Sony Multiscan CPD-E200 was served me well for a few months now, and I've had no problems with it. I'm not so sure about what the product claims, but my Sony Multiscan CPD-E200 is one seriuos piece of kit. I also have one in the office, and I can tell you that we can't tell the difference between the colours we see on screen to the ones we see on professionally printed paper. So, this sort of suggests that the colours are pretty accurate! The sharpness of the images on-screen are also shocking. Unlike other monitors that seem to blu things a bit more, the Sony shows it in a way that I didn't know existed! It'll bring a new dimension to your images! For some reason or another I've noticed that my eyes don't seem to be so sore after using the monitor for several hours, I don't know if it's got a built in filter (probably because it's capable of high refresh rates) but it's very easy on the eyes. Makes a change! So, if you're looking for a new monitor, perhaps for professional DTP or other uses and you've got £200, go for it!
It's simple one of the best monitors you'll find, if not THE best. Sony have done a good job here...
The Sony E200 is a FD tritron monitor meaning the screen is "completely" flat so u get no fish bowl effects of yester years monitors. It's designed is simple and sleek but nothing to go ranting and raving about. It does boast a new method of controlling the OSD. Its called a mouse thing. Its basically a little joystick at the botton right of the screen which you can control in 4 directions and it can be pressed down to get in to the menus. Its sounds complicated to use but when you get your hand on this baby its flows like a river. Its very easy and simple to use, no more fluffing around with buttons. It is back with plenty of OSD options for you to adujust, but lacks some of the more advanced features like changing the colours in each of the 4 corners of the screen. It is at a very good price for what screen you buy in this area. The focus and balance of this monitor is very good, text is very clear and pictures are amazing. It has a .24 aperature screen and so is very fine and easy on the eyes. It does offer a max resolution of 1600 x 1200 but at this the refresh rate can't sustain at 75Hx but drops to 60Hx so u can't use this in games, but this shouldn't matter too much for most ppl to use this monitor but it's ok for the occasional use at this resolution for a while but not recomment it for longer periods. and do u think you have a system that can run games at this mamoth resolution ahey way? if you do then why look at this monitor? go for a larger one..... running it at all the other refresh rates is fine and perfrect in use. All praise to this monitor, and it carries the Sony brand name at the front of the monitor to shine its class. Very nice. But some but very minor niggles, they could have included a usb option and bnc to it but these are lacking, but for the price u pay its a must buy if your looking for a quality monitor. Very flat and sexy (2 words i would never put together!) wel
l not quite sexy but very functional abeit with not enough high end refresh rates for 1600 x 1200 but you can always go for the G200, more expensive but if you'll benefit then go for it. I prefer this over the highly acclaimed iiyamm vision master pro 410 and the rest of the competition. This was the current monitor i used but i am currently using a very good iiyama Vision Master pro 450 a fat 19" version of a flat screen. The OSD is no where near as fast to use as the Sonys one and does aggreivate me. Remember always better to go for a better quality screen like this superb E200 then to go for a cheap 19", remember in the end quaily always pays off no matter what you buy and this is ur eyes we are talking about, u spend hours in front of one working so lets make your eyes happyer and buy a Sony E200.
The sony multiscan e200e is an exceptionally cheap monitor with amazing quality. The flat screen provides good resolution anmd performence and the look of the monitor is very pleasing. Overall, i will give this monitor 9/10. Why not 10/10? you say. I say, ah, it is because they are very hard to get hold of and they are not really included with many computers! There are better monitors out there though, like the sony multiscan g200, which is better, but at the sameprice.
This monitor comes in towards the high end of home/small business 17" monitors and is exceptional quality. The tight dot pitch matched with a good Trinitron screen make the blacks true black and the whites vibrant. High refresh rates at resolutions of 1024x768 and greater are a plus although the resolution that is most usable is 1024x768. This is available at an 85Hz refresh. Whilst this monitor may cost more than the likes of Belinea and Hansol models, the flat tube face and crisp display make it worth the extra.
