Sony SDM-HS74P

 

Superb graphics and enticing design make this monitor a winner.

Bright ; Supports both Digital and Analog connections

Limited range of motion

The elegant SDM-HS74P's graphics quality is head and shoulders above the competition, but positioning yourself a proper distance from the screen is key.

SDM-HS74P 17

 

The Sony SDM-HS74P has the same elegant curves, glassy screen, and cord-concealing back cover as its predecessor, the SDM-HS73, but it also offers a digital input and improved graphics performance. When we tested the SDM-HS74P using its digital video...

If you sit a comfortable distance from the SDM-HS74P its image quality improves. When very close to the screen (12 inches or closer), a few testers noticed a faint grid pattern in solidly colored areas. Most testers quickly adapted to reflections on...

17IN/16V 24mm 1600x1200 60hz Cpd-g220s Flat Trinitron

 

WHAT'S HOT: Like the SyncMaster 700NF, the 17-inch CPD-G220S rendered sharp text and fine, detailed graphics. The manual for the CPD-G220S includes helpful troubleshooting tips and clear instructions for all on-screen controls. This monitor's flat...

HardwareCentral - Sony SDM-HS74P Review.

 

In a marketplace packed with 1,280 by 1,024-pixel, 17-inch LCD monitors, the HS74P seems somewhat plain compared to wide-aspect-ratio or pivot-enabled or TV-tuner-equipped models. But if you want one of the brightest, most easy-on-the-eyes displays...

Best monitor I've had to date, LCD or CRT. Super bright picture and great looking colors. Games look really good with it's fast response time (been playing CS & BF2 on it for a while). Wonderful for movies as well, great picture quality. This is just...

Super bright picture, awesome colors, no ghosting, great price

You can barely see a grid when really up close, no problem if you sit at least a foot away from it

Sits almost anywhere , light as a feather. Great bightness enhancer , as well

Using a DVI connection and have also used it hooked up to 2 machines at once using both connections. It's very handy to have that analog connection when working on other computers. We looked at many monitors when buying, IMO there weren't any that...

Awesome output from this monitor. Photos look great as do websites I view. I am experiencing no problems what so ever with Word or any text

This is one great monitor! I highly recommend this monitor. I am using it on a Mac and the quality is even better than Apple's own monitirs, for a lot less. The style is also really cool and much better than all those drab uncreative monsters you see...

The screen is crisp and so bright i feel like I am getting a tan. The text is clear and I really don't see any blurring or distortion. The outside design is much nicer than most drab designs

A bit low and i wish it could be adjusted higher.. Higher priced than most, but well worth it

I did extensive research on available LCDs prior to purchase. I chose this over Planar's PX171M because I could purchase it on the Internet from a reputable company. I was immediately impressed with the brightness and clarity of the display even at the...

Brightness, clarity

Does not pivot

The most recent upgrade to my computing experience was the addition of the Sony SDM-HS74P/S 17” LCD Monitor to co-exist with my Sony computer, and I simply love staring at it. Lighting it up… Out of the box and typically ...

Small footprint - outstanding performance
