WARNING do NOT BUY this display


Just don't do it especially without a warranty

The cons outweigh the pros but for the sake of the review great crisp picture, awesome response time till it breaks down on you! AND IT WILL! LOOK UP AND RESEARCH THIS MONITOR YOURSELF

Ok make sure to do some extensive research on this monitor because you will find this this monitor has a faulty processor that will eventually fail on you. Look up YouTube videos on this monitors flickering problem that happened to me after about 9...

Know what you are getting into


Cool this thing. Seriously. Or dont and complain later when it breaks. That simple. I advise going here Get them, Use a push pull config, push in at an angle, it can be...

Awesome Picture Quality ; Sound on the display itself (Even if its not amazing but really what is with integrated speakers?) ; 3D ; Easy Set-up and installation

No DVI support (Minor issue these days) ; No Remote ; No Glasses with the Refurbished version ; No included cables except power ; Gets Hot

Terrible quality, terrible customer service


I now have a 22.5 inch (yes, they rounded up A LOT to 24") paper weight. Never having anything to do with Action Packed Inc. again. PC MASTER RACE Should have know that a console creator couldn't produce a decent product :/ oh well

Glass in front of panel. This creates image depth, artificial contrast, and is easy to clean, without worrying about killing any pixels ; I love a square stand ; Has HDMI ports

Pieces of plastic stuck between bezel. Probably left behind while they had the 4 year old refurbishing these things ; SONY emblem on stand is extremely faded ; First HDMI port went out within 5 minutes. My friend showed up right after it happened and...

Dead . Completely Dead in 2 months


I'm playing email tag with Sony support since the serial number is NOT in their system. (how convenient for them) I have very little hope that this will work out.

Price only. Nothing especially unique or above average even when it works 100

Dies quickly, gets hot too

Don't buy. Spend the extra $40 for a ASUS.

Looked great while it worked

Only worked for a month and a half

I used it as a 2nd monitor for 3 months

Died after 3 months and now I have to run after SONY to get help, the fact its 3d wasnt working and it was only 60hz

Good Price


Sony quality has gone down. I have an old tube tv 32 inch from Sony that still works great that I got in college 15 years ago and a 720p TV 10 years ago that still work great. Sony quality is not as good as it was I have had 2 PS3's that broke on me....

I got this monitor probably about 3 years ago when Sony first was showing it. I paid $300 for it and thought it was a good deal. 3D when 3D was so expensive and 2 pairs of 3d glasses and 2 free 3D games. The SimulView for Motorstorm was pretty cool as...

I had to get a replacement for it 3 months later it stopped working, but I had warranty for it. It does tend to overheat after maybe 2 hours of using it, the screen will blink for like 2 seconds. It is a little annoying but I got used to it. The sound...

Broken with 5 minutes


After reading tons of bad reviews I finally bit on it for 99$ and purchased a square trade warranty just in case. It died the very first day and newegg was quick to send a RMA to return and square trade refunded the warranty price. Dont get suckered...

Was cheaper from newegg on popular auction site than on the site ; Unit was clean. Looked brand new ; Picture quality was fair for the price

First time I powered down it never came back on. Known problem that ALL of these are refurbed for. Apparently the fix is not that great ; No Remote. I know it does not claim to have a remote but I just assumed it would have a remote. Must use universal...

Nice for the $$$


For the price, it's a great screen to use for personal gaming or media consumption. If you want to use it for more than a single person, buy something else. I threw mine in a computer armoire with a PS3, Xbox360 and a mini PC. Great for when family...

Dual HDMI inputs, 3D LCD for a great price

No VGA\DVI inputs. Not wall mountable without modification

Great deal if you know how to treat it


I use it as a PC monitor, so here is how I have solved issues with it. To treat overheating: Turn on display, use it for about 30 min, then feel the back of it, there should be a hot spot near the top on the right half (right looking from the front,...

great colour & definition ; multiple inputs ; 3d capable ; the price is a steal ; flawless 2d ; has PlayStation3 unique features

suffers from TREATABLE issues (blackouts, over heating) ; is not NATIVELY supported by Nvidia 3d vision (there are several workarounds) ; does not come with a remote (works with any sony remote however)
