DELUXEPRO Series 17" Flat Panel LCD
Sony's is not new to offering monitors since they have a very
successful computer line. Sony first developed the trinitron
tube that are in existing televisions. Although a flat screen
is not based on CRT technology Sony is a leader in the development
and research of LCD and plasma technology. They offer two categories
of LCD screen. first there is the general purpose and small business.
The second category is their professional series. In both line
you receive similar technologies and quality.
We choose to review from the professional series because the
price difference was roughly thirty dollars in comparison to
a similar model in the business and personal category. If you
can afford the difference the specs and options will be better
in a professional model rather than not. Also you will find that
their easier to look at while playing games, doing graphics,
touching up photos from your digital camera. All around for the
extra thirty dollars you get a excellent product.
We have taken note that in the last month prices on LCD screens
have fallen between $100.00 dollars to five hundred dollars.
A far cry from last year prices which saw 15 inch screen costing
closer to fifteen hundred dollars or more. For roughly one thousand
dollars you can now purchase a seventeen in LCD which is equivalent
to a 19 inch CRT screen. Buy year end we should be seeing nineteen
inch LCD for the price that the seventeen inch is selling for
now. However if your in the market today, your getting a deal
We will give you the specs and later in the review will talk
about the benefits and down falls about LCD screen in general.

The falling cost and the space saver that LCD screen
has seen an increase in sales. However unlike the proven CRT
not much is mentioned on the problem side of LCD. The LCD uses
less power to operate however the principle of the screen is
that it is made up of tiny lights that make up your image and
text. The brighter they are the better able you will be able
to see them. Since they are smaller than the eye may see what
happens if on burns out will you notice it? If many in the same
area were to burn out or malfunction than you would notice a
shadow in that area. When these diodes malfunction the image
or text made up with that diode would be dull or blurred.
The question that arises from this concern is will the manufacture
warranty cover this malfunction and if so what is their guidelines.
Most manufactures will avoid the question all together other
suggest that if five or more diodes malfunction the warranty
will cover this other wise one diode malfunction is not.
Sony builds a fine product that will last you many years
to come. This screen will easily out last a CRT by an estimated
five years. The professional series is built with the expectations
that it is going to be left on longer and looked at long too.
The higher cost compared to others in a similar category indicate
butter parts used and a longer reliability.
The best way to decide if this screen is for you is to visit
a retailer who has one on display. Have it set up so that it
is in front of you such as desk level. Try out all the buttons
for feel and go through the complete menu. Try it at home but
make sure that you can still return the screen if it is not what
you had in mind.
