Product Specifications

The Multiscan E500 is ideal for the home or the office requiring exceptional image performance, without sacrificing value or reliability. It's perfect for everything from spreadsheets to finely detailed graphic presentations to browsing the Internet and gaming. The virtually flat, high-resolution FD Trinitron CRT combined with a 0.24 mm aperture grille pitch and precise, convenient on-screen digital controls, allow the CPD-E500 to perform at a level that will set a new benchmark for your expectations of clarity and color. To provide superior contrast and grayscale performance, the CPD-E500 screen features a high-contrast black coating. This coating, coupled with the display's vertically flat screen, also helps cut glare and washout caused by ambient light. And that reduces eyestrain. Sony's DisplayMouse menu control makes this premier SOHO display one of the easiest to set up, adjust and - in the unlikely event that there's a problem - troubleshoot. Users can quickly take advantage of everything the CPD-E500 has to offer.
