Bigger is better...


After living with a Nokia 447xpro 17" for 4 years, I decided to treat myself to a large monitor. Luck would have it that for a couple hundred more than the price of a pro series 21" monitor I found a used unit on eBay for $1250. So I shelled out the...

Incredible monitor: stunning image quality and size


I purchase 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...

Sony GDM-FW900 - A Monitor's Monitor


I've now had my GDM-FW900 for a little over six months. Its usually right in the beginning when you own something cool that you want to tell the world about it. That feeling eventually wears off or it breaks down and you get something else to brag...

Monster Size, Monster Price, Poor Focus.


I call up the shipping company that has my Sony FW-900. Their office is only about 20 minutes from my house, so instead of waiting until the next day, I decide to go get the monitor myself. I wanted to go swimming on Saturday, not wait around for a...

Product Specifications

The Sony FD Trinitron Wide Aspect Display meets the exacting demands of graphic artists, CAD/CAM engineers, animators and other professional users who require extraordinarily accurate colors and crystal-clear images. This extra-wide 24" display offers an incredible 22.5" viewable image size in a monitor that requires about the same desktop space as most 21" class models. Its virtually flat screen surface provides more true-to-life images, so lines actually appear straighter and circles look round. Contemporary styling in shades of metallic silver and dark gray will appeal to your refined design sensibilities. The FW900 is perfect for graphic designers, architects, photographers, engineers and other professionals who need as much screen space as possible. Its panoramic 16: 10 aspect ratio means you can easily view double-page layouts with room to spare. Or see your entire design at once
