Expert review by:

Sony SDM-HS75P/S 17-inch LCD

 

The Sony SDM-HS75P/S is an attractive, glossy 17-inch LCD that's better suited for movies and games than for serious work.

Attractive design; accurate colors; digital and analog inputs; varied adjustment options.

Inconsistent screen brightness; glossy finish creates potential glare issues; loss of detail in saturated colors; lacks height adjustment; pricey.

Sony SDM-HS95P

 

Outstanding image quality sets this glossy-screen monitor above the rest.

Excellent image quality, Attractive design

Lack of physical adjustments

The Sony SDM-HS95P displays graphics beautifully on a glossy screen, and the easel-like stand looks striking. Height (and swivel) adjustment is all that's lacking.

Sony SDM-S95D

 

After having your hands on a digital camera, if you're like many, you likely can't stop clicking. Family portraits, candids, scenery, nothing's not photo-worthy to you! Of course, there's more to digital photography than snapping photos: you'll need to...

Ultra-thin bezel. Dual video inputs. Excellent text output

Lacks height adjustment. Does not support pivot rotation

The Sony SDM-S95D may not be the most flexible 19-inch LCD out there, but if good image quality and sleek lines are key, this monitor belongs on your short list.

Sony MFM-HT95

 

Native Resolution: 1280 x 1024 pixels x pixels, Screen Size: 19 inches, Supported EDTV and HDTV Resolutions: 1080i ...

Incorporates analog A/V inputs and an integrated NTSC TV tuner. Thoughtfully designed remote control. Good contrast ratio.

Poor image uniformity. Screen technology best suited for light-controlled environments.

The Sony MFM-HT95 is a versatile multifunction display hampered by mediocre image uniformity.

Sony SDM-HS95/B (LCD monitor - 19)"

 

If you like the glossy appearance of a plasma TV, then you'll appreciate the look of Sony's Xbrite monitors. The handsomely designed 17-inch Sony SDM-HS75P/S produces rich, brilliant colors with good accuracy. Provided you keep it away from bright...

Eye catching design, XBRIGHT coating

Colors a little blue out of the box, a little expensive

Expert review by:

Sony SDM-HS95P/S

 

Although this display lacks some of the extra features found on other displays, the HS95P/S is a bright and shiny, well designed, and good performing display.

Eye catching design, XBRIGHT coating.

Colors a little blue out of the box, a little expensive.

Straight out of the box, the display's colors were pleasing, but a bit on the blue side. Once calibrated, the grays became more neutral. Though touted as a benefit of XBRIGHT, the HS95P/S' viewing angle was not as good as some other displays we've...

Sony SDM-HS95P Review

 

An elegantly slim and simple LCD monitor with both analog and digital inputs and terrific image quality

Near the top of the high-priced spread; no pivot function; XBrite screen can be reflective

Like a growing number of desktop as well as notebook LCDs, the HS95P has a contrast- and clarity-boosting design that shows as glossy black instead of gray when switched off (what Sony calls XBrite). The drawback is catching an occasional glimpse of...

This is a brilliant display for everyday use. Although it features only an analog (VGA) input, it produces clear, sharp images.

Outstanding image quality, photos look stunning

Poor button layout, no DVI connector, no audio
