    5-0 out of 5 stars Great consumer-level point-and-shoot digital camera
    If you are just an amateur photographer that is either finally switching from analog to digital or just want a decent camera to take on family vacations or school projects, this is a great camera. It is small, lightweight, and does just about anything you could possibly need it to do. It won't take pictures of hummingbirds feeding across a forest bed, but it will take a decent photo of the grand canyon. The quality of the 3x optical zoom is really good, but the picture is sacrificed slightly as you try to artifically enhance it with the digital zoom. The battery life is good enough to take on extended trips from your hotel or on a hike without having to carry around a charger or spare batteries. If you plan on taking lots of high quality large photos, you will need to get a larger memory stick (64 MB will work, 128 MB even better), but the memory stick it comes with will be enough to photograph your child's birthday party as long as you download the photos onto your computer afterwards. At 4.1 MegaPixels, this camera will pick up hairs on a persons head and it will even be able to define a flea in the hair. 4.1 MP is just barely enough to make clear 8x10 prints.There are 5+ MegaPixel cameras out there, but at the consumer level there is really no point in spending the money on one (5 MP won't come in handy unless you are student taking pictures through a microscope or a telescope, it is more of a prosumer level) All around, while Sony's camera lenses may not compare with Canon or Olympus, Sony makes up for it with their superior knowledge of how to make a great consumer digital device and turn it into a decent digital camera. It is a great value for the price.

    5-0 out of 5 stars BIG value for the price
    I got this camera for one hundred and seventy seven dollars here at Amazon.It packs alot of power for a small camera at a very low price.Here's what I like about it:

    * Small compact size.I wouldn't exactly say this camera is meant for you pockets (although it would fit) as it's thicker than the slim design cameras that you may have seen.However, the thicker frame is what I like about it.It's very comfortable to hold with two hands - very good ergonomic design...fingers to not get in the way of the flash, lens, or viewfinder.I've tried taking pictures with the Canon Elph, and the thinness of that camera is very awkward (not good if you grew up with traditional point and shoot cameras).
    * Excellent, excellent battery life. Say goodbye to proprietary batteries.This puppy uses two AA batteries.If you invest $20 for rechargeable Energizer Ni-Mh batteries (4 batteries and a charger), you'll find yourself taking picutres non-stop.My prior digital camera was a Sony P-50 that also used two AAs.That camera killed off my Ni-Mh batteries after only about 20-40 pictures depending upon flash usage and how long I left it on.The S-40 didn't drain my battery until I took about 200 pictures (the vast majority with the flash on - and I didn't try to conserve the battery).I think it can take a even greater amount, because the 200 was when I 1st got the camera and started playing with all the features wasting battery life.
    * Relatively fast shutter.Press half-way to focus, then press all the way - practically no lag to take the picture unlike the older digital cameras.
    * When using a Memory Stick Pro, the S-40 can take video with sound at 640 x 480 fine quality - good enough to burn onto a DVD and watch on your TV.
    * Intuitive menu buttons on the camera...also has limited programmable camera features (i.e. ISO settings, EV, white balance, flash strength, center vs multi focus, etc.).
    * 32 MB of internal memory - probably won't ever need with my 512MB memory stick, but nice to have just in case.
    * 3X optical zoom on a Carl Zeiss quality lens.
    * The 35mm equivalent is 32 to 96 millimeters.What this translates to is that the camera has a wider angle (so you can capture more in the frame without backing up) than a typical 35mm camera lens.Check out the 35mm equivalent on the other "micro" digital cameras and you will find that they are something like 38mm to 102mm, which means you have to backup to capture the same amount of detail.The higher mm rating is good for zooming, but worse for group photos.It's alot easier to move forward to your subject (for a manual zoom) than to move backwards (for a manual wider angle) in crowded areas.
    * Takes good pictures...much better than my old Sony P-50 (which I got in 2001).

    If I had to list one complaint about the camera, it's that in low lighting any picture taken with the subject greater than about 10 feet away (which is about the flash strength area) will show up "dingy" and the background will be in dark faded colors.HOWEVER, I surmise that ALL point-and-shoot digital (and conventional) cameras have this problem as well.Unless you can attach a larger flash to the camera, which isn't an option on point and shoots, this problem will always exist.Only SLR digital cameras will good pictures in low light with subjects greater than 10 feet away.The S-40 does have a night scene mode where it makes the shutter very slow so more light is captured - in this mode, the camera will take good low light pictures, but you have to use a tripod for this mode.

    Overall, for under $200, I highly recommend this camera.You don't need to spend anything greater as this camera will do the trick.4.1MB is more good enough for photos as large as 8x10.

    5-0 out of 5 stars I'm so happy that I picked this camera!
    I love this camera! I've only had this camera for about a month, but every picture is so vibrant. I work with children and have taken LOADS of pictures that are terrific! it captures everything- from them running,swinging,jump roping and sliding with perfect contrast and clarity. At the store, I was comparing this camera to a Samsung that was the same price and boy was there a difference in quality, this was the best one. This camera was so easy to figure out. In the car on the way home, I opened it,glanced at the manuel,popped open the batteries it came with and started to take pictures. The zoom is fantastic (being my first and only digital camera- I have nothing to compare it to)I took a picture of the car's license plate in front of me which I could not see clearly (w/out using zoom) and then used the 5x digital zoom to get a super clear license plate number (would come in handy for accidents :)). The menus were so easy to figure out, and connection to my computer was a breeze. Also, the software is great. I have just made a slide show video CD using pictures of my students and the software this camera came with. I love it! I HIGHLY recommend this Sony s40 to everyone. I am now addicted to digital photography!

    2-0 out of 5 stars Good Camera for Basic operations
    This is my first review.
    I purchased this camera for memorial weekend holidays from Officedepot and returned it after 3 days.
    Camera is taking good quality pictures, more flash power, good for indoor, outdoor pictures, movie mode.
    Camera records movie with audio, playback with audio internal speaker (nice feature), quick start to shoot, quick auto poweroff.
    good:
    1. Good Picture quality
    2. Long Battery Life
    3. Quick starter
    4. Professional quality Lens
    5. Uses AA batteries


    Bad:
    1. No Rechargeable batteries and charger, like all sony cameras
    2. Not fully manual operations
    3. Menu controls are confusing
    4. Manual doesn't explained all features
    5. Pictures are blurred of moving persons or objects
    6. You can not take pictures of moving or dancing (kids).

    Because of 5 & 6 reasons i returned the camera.
    I had P72 Sony purchased in Bestbuy for $99 is far better than this. I took continuous pictures ie burst mode and took all pictures in moving or dancing kids, even while driving the car without any problem.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Little Camera!
    First of all, let me say that I am NOT a camera bug or a photographic expert (neither digital nor film) so this is a new learning experience for me.I am very impressed with this product.
    It delivers professional results and is easy to use.Newbees like me can get great results with the AUTO mode, then when you have the time to do so, you can experiment with the manual settings for custom results.The nice thing about digital (with a computer) is that you're not throwing away expensive materials (ie film) in order to learn.You can just delete your failures and try again.When you get a pic that looks printworthy you can either print it using your PC or you can connect the USB cord (supplied) directly to a photoprinter (if said printer has a standard called PICTBRIDGE). There are many settings that you can control (ISO sensitivity, EV, White Balance and other settings that shutterbugs are familiar with) or you can set it to AUTO and let the camera set it up for you.It uses JPEG format and you can get much detail setting it to 4 megapixels but these pics turn out BIG (almost 2 megs).If you don't want your pics that big you can set them down to 3.2, 3,1, or VGA and they still look very good, but they are smaller and easier to store.The camera is about the size of a bar of soap and fits very easily into a pocket. You can also take "webcam" type movies. The documentation comes in print and on the CD and is excellent, going into much detail on how to use the manual settings for best results.My only disappointment is with the Photo Editing program that comes on the CD.This program dosen't offer much for editing your pics on a PC (no problem for me though.I have PhotoDeluxe). If you have a good editing program that came with your printer (or scanner) you might want to use it instead.I think the software included with this camera is more suited for HandyCams (video cameras).
    The camera has 32 megs of onboard memory which allows you to shoot 16 pics at 4 MPs, 20 at 3MPs, 50 at 1 MPs and 196 at VGA.
    It has a slot for a memory stick if you choose to buy one. If you do decide to buy one of these cameras, do yourself a favor and buy some rechargable NIMH batteries, because I'll tell you ( and anybody with digicam experience knows this) alkaline batteries do not cut it with this camera.It comes with 2 alkalines and I think I took all of about 12 pictures before they were WIPED OUT!I then tried some regular Everready alkalines I had just bought and they wouldn't even power it up.The NIMH's that I bought work excellent and last long in between recharges. So, all in all, would I recommend this camera?Absolutely!! ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great little camera.
    It's compact but not too small.I was looking at Canon SD500 and Sony W7, and chose the W7, as the SD500 was just too small in physical size and really needed to hold it with both hands to feel secure.W7 is easy to use and picture quality is great.It would have gotten 5 stars if it had shutter and aperture priority mode built in.1Gb memory stick, 15 minute charger and extra batteries should be considered must have accessories with this camera. ...

    Product Description

    The Apple Cinema Display line features a gorgeous new anodized aluminum enclosure to complement the Power Mac G5 or PowerBook G4.

    Eliminate Tunnel Vision
    The widescreen design of the Apple Cinema Display line offers a natural format for arranging documents the way your brain processes themlonger wide than high. That’s why each display gives you the best view for your work. It just makes sense to be able to display a Web page and its code next to each other horizontally, or long video timelines in wide format. And the 20-inch Cinema Display, at an affordable price, provides the exact resolution to display widescreen High Definition material. Apple engineers find that 100 pixel per inch resolution is ideal for images, yet allows you to easily work with sophisticated type treatments or just plain email. This painstaking attention to detail moves the industry forward and gives you best LCD technology available.

    Connect With Pure Digital DVI
    Give your PowerBook G4 a second display when you’re not on the road. Now you can connect the 20-inch Apple Cinema Display directly to any PowerBook G4 with a DVI port. This DVI connection also removes all barriers to using an Apple display with a PC. If your graphics card supports DVI with DDC technology for widescreen viewing, you should be able to use these two displays with a PC.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Pricey but beautiful..
    First things first: the 20" Apple Cinema uses the same panel as the Dell Ultrasharp 2005FPW. I paid less than retail for the Cinema due to a coupon and another discount but regardless, the price was almost twice what the Dell cost (if caught during one of Dell's frequent sales or from a third party reseller). I repeat: the Dell and Apple use the SAME Philips panel.So why buy the Apple? I like the brushed aluminum case, stand and clean look. Frivolous but for something I have to look at every day, I find it important to have something that's pleasing to the eye. And please it does. It is truly a work of art that wouldn't be out of place in the Guggenheim. The resolution and response times are outstanding. Video is smooth with no noticeable artifacts. The display is very bright and has good off angle viewing. Using it in daylight with the windows open isn't a problem. The widescreen makes viewing and editing documents side by side easy. Did I mention bright? Bottom line, this is an outstanding display. The 20" widescreen is a good compromise between smaller 17"-19" displays and the almost too large 23"-24" screens. Larger is usually better for movies and television but for the desktop, I find the 23" and up a little too big. A best buy this isn't but a frivolous purchase once in a while won't kill you.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A Stunning display
    This is by far the best computer display I have ever seen in my 22 year affair with computers. The design of the display is just stunning - it's a jewel on your desktop or on your wall. It's bright (even in mid day full sunlight), it's crisp, the colors are alive/fantastic and it's very easy on the eyes. It is not only superior to any LCD I have seen to date but also better than any CRT I ever looked at (numerous - believe me, including all kind of mitsubishi, sony etc). I am truely excited about this monitor. By the way, DVD films look great on it too! Well worth the money. It will make you happy.
    Cheers.

    5-0 out of 5 stars 20" with a PC/DVI
    After several months of debating whether or not it was worth the money, I finally bought one of these babies.I hesitated for so long because of the price.I came close to ordering the 21" Samsung several times but really wanted a WS.After seeing the in the Apple stores several times, I really wanted one but $1300 was a big chunk of change.Then when the price dropped to below $1000 I gave in.

    Overall, it is an impressive display.I am running it with a custom built PC using an ATI 9700 Pro w/DVI out.At first I could not get the thing to work at native resolution at all and any other res would produce strange results.Eventually, I discovered that something was wrong with my display drivers and I simply wiped out windows and started over from scratch (had been meaning to do it anyway and I upgraded the HD at the same time).After that, it worked like a champ.No problems whatsoever.

    My only grips are the incompatibility with XP and the USB hub in the display.This is a well know problem with the PCs and Apple does not seem to care.Also, the only hard button controls you get are brightness and contrast.No other screen adjustments with the PC.I haven't really need any since the display have proven to be very intelligent when resizing different screen res's and I can use the ATI drivers to adjust things like color temp and gamma.

    Other then that it is a fantastic display for the price.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Apple Cinema 20" Display
    I bought a G-5 last summer and was using a 17" PC monitor for months with it. Let me say that the monitor is more important than I thought! I am a graphic designer/artist that works on the computer most of the day. If you are using a computer as a professional and especially a graphic person PLEASE CONSIDER THIS FOR YOURSELF!!!!! I also talked my boss into getting me one at work ... so I have one at the office and at home.

    The graphics are so crisp and clear! The wide format which allows you to have all your pallets and toolbars open and still have a two page spread open with NO overlap! This is worth the cash in it's self. It is a lot easier on the eyes than a CRT.

    The only downside to it is there is a little banding on it when viewing a DVD movie, or a heavy video game... but mine is used 95% work and internet so I don't care.

    GET ONE!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Apple Cinema Display gives you full computing experience...
    There was a time that I never considered buying an Apple display. I figured a Mac costs enough money, without spending $1000, or more, on a display.In late January 2005, I purchased the newest Powerbook G4 12 inch 1.5 GHZ G4, with superdrive.The notebook had nearly all the performance I was looking for, and the small form factor allows me to easily haul it around the house, or the world should I ever get to travel properly.However, I wanted more from my Powerbook, when at my desk.

    Yes, I was already using my Powerbook with an external display.It was an analog Sony LCD.However, it was only 15 inches, with a resolution of 1024x768, so I actually had as little screen real estate on my external display, as I had on the 12 inch built-in display.I wanted more.

    After deciding a 17 inch LCD would not be enough, I ordered the Apple's 20" Cinema Display, and I'm glad I did.Unfortunately, the box arrived beat-up, and there was even dirt inside.However, everything inside seemed to work ok, thankfully.Un-wrapping the cinema display was a joy, and I was eager to put it on my desk.The design of this display is stunning.The aluminium enclosure will please the eyes of anyone, and the back of the display is as beautiful, if not more beautiful than the front.There is a single cable that comes from the back of the display, which neatly goes through an opening on the aluminium stand.This single cable splits in the end into Firewire, USB, DVI, and a power connector that you plug into the power brick.I connected the firewire, USB, and DVI to my Powerbook, and then I connected the power to the display.Wow.It was perfect out of the box.I could never get the color profile right on my old external display, but the cinema display was out of the box the most beautiful display I had ever used.The brightness was exceptional, and it took a few days for me to get used to the brightness. Yes, you can lower the brightness with grace of your finger over the sophisticated tough-sensitive buttons on the right side of the display, but I loved the look at full-brightness.

    My computing experience has been at another level, since the cinema display arrived.Whether I'm browsing the web, working in Photoshop and iPhoto, or making a movie in iMovie, the 20" cinema display and its 1680x1050 resolution is a joy to use.The display also gives me two USB and two Firewire ports directly behind the panel, which is incredibly convenient.If you're a gamer, which I'm not, you will appreciate the 16ms response this display offers.

    Yes, your computer does all the hard work, but it is your display you interact with. A great display like the Apple Cinema Display allows you to get more done, with less work and effort. For example, you do not have to figure out how to fit all your Photoshop palettes on the screen, for there is plenty of room.

    DVDs are quite the experience on this display as well.I popped in Shrek 2, and I was amazed by the images, but DVDs are far from the only reason you should want a widescreen.The widescreen aspect of this display allows you to work in the way our minds are designed and used to working.We read from left to right, so a display that is wider than it is long makes a lot of sense.

    Overall, if you would like to save some money, there are other displays out there.Dell actually offers a 20 inch widescreen display, which compares nicely with this one, even supporting additional inputs.However, it does lack something.It lacks the beauty in design that the Apple Cinema Display offers, and it probably lacks some of the quality control that Apple strives hard to achieve.For example, Apple might reject some of the panels they use inside of this display, if they suspect quality concerns, where other manufactures may use any panel they are supplied with, without spending the time and money to ensure a quality panel. If you believe you would like to spend some money on a fantastic display to use with your Powerbook, PowerMac, or DVI-output PC, then you should not pass-up this beauty.It is truly a piece of art from an aesthetics point of view, and the images it displays are spectacular.This display will not look like "yesterday's" display anytime soon.In fact, it is a pleasure to enjoy a display that does not look like it should be part of a busy, cluttered office.This display oozes beauty and grace, and the stock Apple pictures do not do it justice. The Apple Cinema Display gives you the full computing experience. ... Read more

    3-0 out of 5 stars great picture but
    great picture and colors for a good price but has one bad pixel. Maybe this is my luck.

    5-0 out of 5 stars greatMonitor
    Great Monitor for the money, Its better than my old one that would heat my small home office up. The review from picky consumer"f" said the image quality was bad, maybe that person needs to see a eye doctor. Image quality is great, im glad i bought it.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Bang For The Buck
    No dead pixels, nice vibrant colors (after some tweaking), no complaints. It's connected to an iBook 12' laptop which supports only up to 1024x768, and though Acer recommends using the monitor at 1280x960 for best results, I'm happy with the image it gives.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Nice bright display
    My 21" Nokia CRT finally gave out last week and I ordered up two of these Acer AL1912 LCD's to run off of my dual head video card.I checked around for a straight replacement for my old 21" but found the price on an equal monitor had actually gone up.I noticed the Acer LCD on sale for just over 3 bills and figured two would make a great replacement and give me a little more desktop real estate to work with.

    After setup, I measured the new 19" LCD and the old 21" screens to compare and found the actual viewable size was only 3/4" smaller!Though max resolution is 1280 x 1024 on the LCD, I only notice a small difference, the addition of the 2nd flat panel though yeilded a great deal of welcome new space.The new LCD has a very nice bright and vivid display and after installing the driver, I was able to update the refresh frequency to 75hz and play my favorite first person shooter (counterstrike source).

    Games are always the toughest test for any computer system so a component that can game well, will definately do great on any desktop application like photo editing, or web browsing.I noticed while browsing a couple sites, the white background of pages was so bright it was actually too much so I cranked the brightness down to 50%.The display stand and case have a nice black design that is compact compared to its equal CRT counterpart and compliment my black computer case and keyboard.The shelf on my desk that the CRT monitor used to sit on had a sag of about 1" that leveled back out after its removal and replacement of the new LCD.The more compact LCD also takes up much less space on my desk so I have room for more junk food and empty coke cans... what a great bonus :)

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Value
    I thought this monitor would be too good to be true for the price. It is fast, clear and I have not touched a control since getting it out of the box. It has been a joy to play video games on. Its footprint is tiny and I really enjoy the increased desk space. The screen geometry seems perfect. I am using 1280 by 1024 resolution and have no problem seeing anything and I have "over 40" eye sight. I had to clean it and just used a dry cotton towel and it removed the dust in one pass. It then looked perfect again. It looks like it was made for my Dell CPU. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent monitor for the price
    I purchased a 213T to replace a three-year-old 181T.The 181T is still working fine (though it has some slightly noticeable burn-in).The 181T has an incredibly sharp picture (I work with text all day and I'm very fussy about monitors).I was dubious that the 213T could deliver the same picture quality with a 3" larger screen and priced hundreds less than I paid for the 181T.

    I was pleasantly surprised.The 213T's picture is perfect.No dead pixels, extremely sharp, and colors that look even better than the 181T.Don't believe the other reviews that caution against using this monitor in analog mode.There is a perceptible difference between the digital and analog mode, but the analog picture is still of outstanding quality.I used analog mode for about a week before replacing my graphics card with a dual-DVI Matrox P650, and I could have lived with it, but I wanted both monitors running in digital mode.

    Two noticeable differences between the 213T and the 181T:the 213T comes out of standby a lot faster (about 2 seconds instead of 5), and the fluid is much slower on the 213T.If I take a window with a dark blue background and white text, and drag it around on the 213T, the text smears to blue.There is almost no change in the text color on the 181T.This might be an issue for some people, but it isn't an issue with the way I use the monitor.

    5-0 out of 5 stars WOW! Beautiful, functional at a good price
    Gorgeous image, rotation for LONG viewing with included PivotPro software, color/brightness correction for various settings (office lightings, home lightings, etc.) with included Natural Color software. Comes with VGA and DVI cables. Very pleased.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Not quite perfect, but very good
    As all of the other reviews are stellar, I had to add my own cautions.

    First, I am generally very happy with this monitor and highly recommend it for most uses.I primarily use this for stock charting software and it is excellent for this.I also am supplying a natural 1600x1200 res signal from my IBM t42 laptop so I am giving it as high a quality signal as possible.And the difference between a 21" and 20" screen is VERY usable!

    But there are some issues that some of you might want to note:
    *Sharpness:While the 213T is a 1600x1200 res monitor, it is clearly not as crisp and detailed as my 15" laptop, also a native 1600x1200 screen.There is a loss of some detail and an overall softness that would probably make a CAD/CAM or photo-junky frustrated at times.
    *Getting the colors right:No problem getting things bright, but getting the colors to come close to that on my laptop or my desktop has been impossible.Photos that I know well simply look far too different on the Samsung and no amount of fussing with the monitor or the supplied software has been able to resolve this.Again, if you are a graphics or photo person, you might find this an issue.

    As for me, I am perfectly happy since I bought this primarily to have a second monitor attached to my laptop for dual screen use with stock charts. And frankly a bit of color shift and a bit of softness is completely overshadowed by the huge picture and amount of 'stuff' that I can have active on the screen.Consider your needs and useage.This may be the perfect monitor for you as well.And comparitively very affordable, too!

    5-0 out of 5 stars very pleased
    I ordered this monitor from tigerdirect.com with a new computer.I had originally ordered the 19" but was not pleased with the picture brightness. My salesperson recommended the SyncMaster 213t.It arrived today and I couldn't be more pleased.TigerDirect loaded the software and the cables were already connected to the monitor.So setup was a breeze.The first thing you notice is the SIZE.Fantastic.The letters are so very clear as compared to my 21" crt hitachi.The screen can be rotated to three positions and that is one great feature.To make it short, if you want a quality image and you want it large and you want the ability to rotate your screen from landscape to portrait, then look no further, BECAUSE THIS IS THE MONITOR YOU WANT.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Huge screen, sumptuous color, and rotates for full-page view
    This large-screen (21") LCD monitor fully lives up to the top ratings awarded by both PC-World and Consumer Reports. The colors are breathtakingly realistic - better than the Trinitron CRT it replaced. The 1600x1200 pixel viewing area is huge - more than sufficient to give ample working room for image, tools and palettes in Photoshop. Not the least [in addition to the standard tilt, swivel and height adjustments] the screen rotates to a vertical position so that you can get a full-page view of a word-processing document, or a photo in portrait mode. And the Pivot Pro software is included in the package. Also included are two full-size cables: for connecting to either a standard VGA (analog) graphics adapter, or to a newer digital DVI card. The 25 msec refresh time might cause smearing when playing games (not tested), but otherwise the display is simply awesome and rock steady; I didn't see a bad pixel in the nearly 2 million pixels on board.

    Installation is another story, however. The enclosed setup guide is virtually useless - not helped a bit by the unfathomably literal Korean translation. The complete guide is on the CD, and in handsome full color with animation yet. But what use would that be if you can't get the monitor to work in the first place? That said, installation from the CD went smoothly, yielding a great 1286x1024 image - but when I tried to get to the native 1600x1200 display setting, the monitor would not sync properly. After several hours of head-scratching and web searching I finally located the latest driver, and all is well at last. Still, too heavy a burden is placed on the end-user; wouldn't an old-fashioned phone call have been nice! [BTW: don't be fooled by the ludicrous "retail list price" shown; the monitor lists for well under a thousand bucks.] ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars State of the Art Monitor
    I have had this monitor for several months now and I believe it to be the best computer investment I have made in years.

    What I like:
    -Thin bezel (frame around screen)
    -Small footprint
    -Generally sharp looking screen design
    -Sharp image
    -Easy to install and use
    -Definitely puts less strain on my eyes than my old 21" CRT, I can spend hours in front of the PC.
    -Last but not least the 3yrs warranty (where else can you get that?)

    Disadvantages:
    -The stand does not have much swiveling adjustments
    -The stand cannot be adjusted vertically
    -Some screen designs out there look more appealing but the 710n-2 surpasses them technologically. (See below)

    LCD monitors have obvious advantages over CRT monitors:
    -LCD monitors consume less power
    -Do not produce electromagnetic radiation as CRTs do
    -Do not flicker like CRTs
    -Produce a sharper image (especially with text)
    -Are light and slim in size
    -Have a full viewable size

    LCD monitors also have disadvantages compared to CRT monitors:
    -LCD monitors do not show consistent brightness and color shades as your viewing angle shifts
    -Are slower in responding to image changes wich means movies or games visual quality is affected. Choosing an LCD with a low response time should correct this issue however.

    The technical specs of this monitor make it one of the best -if not the best- ones out there.
    Please compare its technical specs, line to line, with the competition and see for yourself.

    Here are a few hints:
    -Dot pitch is the size of the individual pixels that make up the screen, the smaller the dot pitch, the better the details' quality.
    Samsung 710N-2 = 0.264 mm
    Competition > 0.284mm

    -Contrast ratio: This spec is really irrelevant; it measures the difference between the darkest and the lightest areas of a test screen. Above 300:1 is considered good.
    Samsung 710N-2 = 600:1
    Competition >450:1

    -Viewing angle (Horizontal and Vertical): Not important, unless you intend to watch your monitor by sitting at an angle to it (i.e. presentations for a group). A bigger angle is a plus
    Samsung 710N-2
    Horizontal viewing angle: 160 degrees
    Vertical viewing angle: 140 degrees

    -Response time: A hidden but revealing spec. It measures the response time to image changes, the smaller the response time the better off you are watching movies and playing games.
    Samsung 710N-2 = 12 ms
    Competition > 16ms

    -Brightness: A measure of screen luminance or brightness, it is an indication of a pleasing image under all ambient light conditions.
    Samsung 710N-2 = 300 nits
    Competition = 250-300 nits

    I hope this review will help you decide which monitor to buy.

    5-0 out of 5 stars 12MS Fast, Great LCD Monitor
    I have had this unit for 3 months now and got it at a higher price. It is a great unit for almost anything I use including the games I play, photoshop, and excel stuff that I do. Samsung makes the best monitor out there since they are one of the largest display company in the world. I have read it that they only use exclusively Samsung panels that are the best in the world. Unlike Viewsonic that do not make their own products, I guess Samsung is getting the best panels for its branded monitors. I highly recommend this monitor.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Samsung makes some of the best flat panel monitors
    I did alot of comparative shopping and watched LCD prices drop over the last few months.I got an excellent price on this monitor.My friend has a slightly older Samsung LCD and the clearity of the display impressed me.This monitor is no acception.It's stylish looking and doesn't take up alot of deskspace, but more importantly it has features to make it a worthwhile purchase.It's got a 12 ms response time, a 600:1 contrast ratio and 1280 x 1024 max resolution.Comparing this to my economy priced philips 17 in CRT (107s) is not even possible.I havent done any gaming with this monitor yet, but with 12 ms response time their should be no ghosting.Most LCDs are 25ms or 16ms, but Samsung provices 12 ms with this model.More of an issue for gamers, but certainly not a bad thing for the rest of us.DVDs look sharp and crisp.The adjustment menu allows for diff color modes, entertainment, internet, custom and a couple others.A useful feature as for typing I like to tone down my monitor's brightness to save my eyes.The menu selection keys are sort of hidden in the right hand lower corner, which although some people say is inconvenient, takes little getting used to.The menu is intuitive and easy to use.You also get 3 year parts and labor coverage + 3 months for returning your product registration.

    The only cons I can think of are fairly superficial.The power cord is only partially hidden by the back part of the stand, while older samsung models mask the entire cord.The model is not available in silver, but the black is still really sharp looking.The stand is limited to tilting the monitor up or down.Some monitors on the market allow you to adjust height and swivel, for me this is not a concern as I wouldnt use this feature.

    This monitor is recommended to anyone looking to upgrade to an LCD.It saves deskpace and has excellent image quality. ... Read more

    Amazon.com Product Description

    Loaded with picture-enhancing technologies and a DVI (Digital Visual Interface) for a direct-digital connection with a DTV receiver, Westinghouse Digital's LTV-32W1 32-inch widescreen LCD television will amaze you with its ability to render sharp, vivid images from standard- and high-definition sources alike. The set's widescreen, 16:9 aspect ratio is specially designed to match the dimensions of your favorite DVD movies and HDTV broadcasts, and you can use it as a computer monitor, too.

    The 1,366 x 768-pixel LTV-32W1 features an ultra-thin, 8.5-inch profile with a 170-degree viewing angle that makes it possible to view a clear picture from almost anywhere in the room--perfect for gatherings and family movie nights. The TV is compatible with everything from standard 480i to 480p, 720p, and full 1080i HD pictures (built-in image scaling adjusts 1080i signals to match the set's 768 horizontal lines). Compatible PC inputs range from 640 x 480 to 800 x 600, 1,024 x 768, 1,280 x 720, and full 1,366 x 768.

    Progressive scanning, referred to as 480p or 720p for the number of horizontal lines that compose the video image, creates a picture using twice the scan lines of a conventional DVD picture, giving you higher resolution and sharper images while eliminating nearly all motion artifacts.

    LCD screens offer a number of benefits over CRT monitors and televisions, including general ease of use, freedom from eye strain (no screen flickering or radiation emissions), quiet operation (no high-pitch "flyback" noise, an issue with CRT TVs), image geometry (no curvature distortion or susceptibility to magnetic interference from, say, speakers), screen life (no risk of image burn-in), space savings, and light weight/easy positioning.

    The set boasts not just TrueLife video enhancement, but award-winning Faroudja DCDi (Directional Correlation Deinterlacing), as well, a video processing technology designed to eliminate jagged edges and provide a clearer picture. The LTV-32W1's exceptional 8 millisecond response time (the time it takes the screen's pixels to update themselves with fresh data) delivers crisp images for fast-action moving video and video games. The set also displays the broadest possible range of colors and--with its 550 cd/m2 brightness--produces vibrant images in almost any lighting condition.

    Westinghouse Digital's single-tuner PIP (picture-in-picture) feature lets you watch any source as your main image and some combination of sources as a secondary image atop each main screen. PIP functions include positioning, sizing, image swap, and audio swap.

    Connections include 2 component-video inputs (both SD), 2 composite-video, 1 S-video, 1 RF, and 1 PC (RGB). A headphone jack fosters private listening. The set gives you stereo audio (with 9 watts per channel) from inputs or broadcast programming.

    The set is "frame ready" so you can attach a Westinghouse Décor frame to match the furnishings and style of any room in the house.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great value large screen LCD TV - LTV-32W1
    I spent several days looking at as many large screen TV's as I could find, mainly around the 25" - 40" size. I have had a Samsung 17" HDTV in the kitchen for some months and have a projector for watching movies, but wanted a good sized TV for the familly room. It was almost by chance that I came across the Westinghouse range of LCD TVs at Best Buy. Prices ranged from $1000 for 27" to $1700+ for 32". The range appears to have been introduced quite recently (early 2005?) and the clean, simple design was immediately appealing. The prices were all very keen - in most cases at least $2-300 less than comparable models from other manufacturers. The only manufacturer with noticeably better picture quality was Sharp. Their picture quality is superb!

    My main requirement was for a good looking TV with the best possible picture quality for the price. I wasn't really interested in gimmicks like PIP (picture-in-picture / watching two video sources at the same time), and being able to feed in signals from multiple digital sources. (This model does support PIP as it happens, and also has a wide range of audio & video inputs, but it has only a single TV tuner) I DID want support for HDTV and connection to a PC.

    I thought that the 27" model was outstanding value at just under $1000 from Best Buy, but the 32" LTV-32W1 struck me as much better value for $1400 from Electronics Express through Amazon. The picture quality is really good. I have seen many cheap flat-screen TV's that are just so fatiguing to watch. So far I have seen no strange blocky artifacts or other picture distortion. Personally, I found good quality LCD screens so much easier to watch than their plasma counterparts. The picture from LCDs seems clearer and less harsh than plasma. The internal cable-ready tuner is fine for basic low-res TV without the need for an additional cable box. One last point is that I was quite pleased with the sound from the built-in speakers. No, they are not hi-fi, but many of the models I auditionned sounded like tiny transistor radios from the 1970's!! The LTV-32W1
    has - in my opinion - one the the better sound outputs from its built-in speakers, which was quite important for me as I did not want any more clutter and wires! I will probably add a small sub-woofer though to fill out the bottom-end.

    All-in-all I am very pleased with this TV and would recommend it very highly.

    5-0 out of 5 stars From "high end" to "bargain basement"
    EXCELLENT IMAGE FOR LITTLE MONEY!

    I bought the Infocus X2 to replace a worn out and broken $15,000.00 "high end" CRT projector. My budget would not allow for a more appropriate replacement. While the X2 could never satisfy the true videophile, who usually spend anywhere from $10,000 to $30,000 dollars on a projector, it was never intended to.

    That being said, I will say that the Infocus X2 when being shown on my Stewart 100" screen is projecting an impressive image that is pretty close to the $15,000 unit it replaced!A true videophile will certainly see the difference, but your average person will not. With my limited budget, I am quite satisfied with the very good image quality.DVDs are sharp and clear, TV is quite satisfactory also.

    If you are looking to enter the big screen front projector market, and you don't want to spend more than a thousand dollars, here you go!

    But seriously folks, even though it works, stop shining your projector on a wall....get yourselves a screen. There are special reflective properties in a screen that a painted wall doesn't have to really bring your image to life.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Hi Def TV, Cable, DVD's and X-box all look Fantastic!
    Bottom line - best major purchase I have made since I bought a home with a finished basement!

    I got the projector and mounted it on the ceiling in my basement projecting on a light-brown wall. I expected that I would need to paint the walls white, or get a screen, but was shocked by the amazing picture quality. Here are the details:

    1) Comcast Cable with HiDef Box. Hidef program is so amazing it makes me want to cry. Sports programing blows the mind away. I even enjoy watching boring hi-def shows with the wife, like the Oscars, just because I am so amazed at how crystal clear the picture looks. You feel like you are there! Regular TV looks surprisingly great too, but setting it up right is critical. Make sure to change the aspect ratio back to Native (vs 16:9 when watching hi-def channels).Ensure that the HDTV cable box has the following settings:
    Aspect Ratio (controls regular programming) = 4:3 letterbox
    Output Type (controls High def programming) = experiment with 720P vs 1080i
    4:3 overide (controls regular programming)= 480p.
    I am also using the expensive $99 monster DVI cable to connect to the cable box. This is essential to make regular TV look great vs grainy.Get the DVI to M1 connections, wires and adaptors - you MUST budget this into your overall budget or the projecter will not be a great buy (see my "problem" section below).

    2) X-Box. I purchased the Hi-Def cable/wire from Microsoft for $20. Once you buy the cables, you can go into the Xbox dashboard settings to allow for 720p and 1080i. Most games are in 480p and 16:9 format. The few Games in highdef look fantastic!You can check hdtvarcade.com to see the exact resolution of every game.

    3) DVD player: Since the Xbox only outputs in 480i, I wanted to try the upconversion DVD players. I first tried the Denon 1910. That did NOT work when using a DVI cable!!! It might have been because it was refurbished or possibly it was because the Infocus X2 is not HDCP compliant?? I'm not sure, but the 1910 warns against non-HDCP compliant units and InFocus says that x2 is non-compliant - so that's my best guess. Next I tried the TOSHIBA SD-5970. That worked, and I hooked it up using the $99 Monster HDMI to DVI cable. I'm not sure if it was worth it, because DVD's look great, but NOT Amazing compared to HiDef Comcast programming. The verdict is still out, but I have never seen any of the DVD's like Finding Nemo that supposedly look MUCH better with progressive scan DVD's. I can't tell much difference between when DVD is set to 720p vs 1080i HDMI output.

    Once again, everybody that comes over, including the sceptic wife, is shocked by our basement - they all say its like a full-scale theater, much bigger and clearer than a regular big screen TV and I don't even have surround sound yet - that'll be my next big purchase. Infocus X2 is highly recommended, but be sure to check out the problem section below:

    Problems
    1) My InFocus X2 does not have any component inputs. That means to get premium quality, you must come through the M1/DVI input. If you have a DVD, Cable box and Xbox like me, it is a real pain to switch the cable in the back (especially with a ceiling mount). I got myself a step ladder to make it easier. The DVI switcher for 4 DVI cables is TOO expensive, almost $400.

    2) Be prepared to spend at least $3-400 after you get your InFocus to purchase DVI cables for the cable box, possibly HDMI cables if you buy a progressive scan DVD player, as well as adapters to connect your DVI cable to the M1 computer port... Its definitely worth it, but just be prepared.In my opinion, the progressive DVD player is optional (saves you approx $150), but the cables are mandatory.

    3) No way to turn off unit with remote (and yes it is still a little noisy in whisper mode, but once the movie starts you can't hear it anymore). I have it set-up so that after it cools/powers down I just turn off the entire unit on the wall switch since it is ceiling mounted.

    4-0 out of 5 stars This is a great projector as long as you only use progressiv
    The de-interlacer chip is unneaded as long as you use all progressive sources.

    In fact when you input HDTV it uses the same scaler as the X1 and H30 projectors.

    The image quality is great.Just dont try and watch TV on it, you'll claw your eyes out.

    I can't push that enough, the projector is awesome, as long as you use NO interlaced sources.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Rainbow Effect A Deal Breaker
    I did a lot of homework before buying this product (my first projector). If you've done the same, you'll know this is a great projector for home theatre use - with all the right features and a lot of bang for the buck. This is all true.

    I sampled projectors with better/higher features and saw nothing worth twice the price. There is no doubt (unless money truly is NO OBJECT) that this is the projector to choose for home theatre.

    ALL THAT BEING SAID, and having read and been warned by at least a dozen reviews (of the X1) which marginalized the ''rainbow effect'' I MUST SAY THAT THE RAINBOW EFFECT IS A INSURMOUNTABLE SORE POINT and my review will focus on exactly that. I don't know if any projectors exist in the world without this problem, but here it is in a more understandable form:

    It seems that the picture is made of RGB images that alternate faster than the eye can notice (in other words, that there is a red image followed by a green image and then lastly a blue image - each a few dozen times per second). If you wave your hand infront of the projector very fast you can see the image break down on different fingers as different colors.

    A similar effect manifests when your eye moves accross the screen very fast, or if a high-contrast, highly-bright image moves across the screen very fast. You will notice three objects instead of one (red, green and blue). For example, in a largely dark scene, a light bulb will seem to have three colors if you move your eyes fast around the screen. I suspect the scene with dueling light-savers in Star Wars to be the perfect example of a bad scene for the rainbow effect - it's mostly dark and has small bright features that move fast.

    For me this is almost a deal breaker and I regret dropping a grand for a few features I probably wouldn't miss with an ''inferior'' projector. The problem is: I don't know what projectors there are out there that won't have this problem and have anywhere close to the performance of this one (adjusted for price).

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Camera! Easy to use!
    I had to replace my Olympus D-550. It was difficult to make a decision as I had loved the Olympus, but I dropped it on the floor and it was broken. The decision to buy a Sony stemmed from owning rechargable AA batteries and my dad owning a sony memory stick already for an older Sony Mavica.

    I have had nothing but great pictures with this camera, unless I moved.Batteries last a long time but the included charger and batteries would have been a better deal if it charged more than two AA batteries at a time.

    The manual is very easy to follow; there are alot of features in this camera so I refer to it every once in a while to refresh my memory. I mostly use it outdoors with children in my day care in very bright conditions or in florescent lighting and all the pictures are great.

    I download using the USB cable and Windows XP camera wizard. I only installed the basic software to run the camera, because all the other software is useless.It doesn't edit the pictures, so I actually edit them on Camedia. I know some people don't like that software either, but on the whole it is easy to use and works well.

    You won't be sorry if you buy this camera. It is small enough to go anywhere, and will do the job.Unless you want the semi-pro models to change lenses, this is one of the best cameras I've ever owned.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great consumer-level point-and-shoot digital camera
    If you are just an amateur photographer that is either finally switching from analog to digital or just want a decent camera to take on family vacations or school projects, this is a great camera. It is small, lightweight, and does just about anything you could possibly need it to do. It won't take pictures of hummingbirds feeding across a forest bed, but it will take a decent photo of the grand canyon. The quality of the 3x optical zoom is really good, but the picture is sacrificed slightly as you try to artifically enhance it with the digital zoom. The battery life is good enough to take on extended trips from your hotel or on a hike without having to carry around a charger or spare batteries. If you plan on taking lots of high quality large photos, you will need to get a larger memory stick (64 MB will work, 128 MB even better), but the memory stick it comes with will be enough to photograph your child's birthday party as long as you download the photos onto your computer afterwards. At 5.1 MegaPixels, this camera will pick up hairs on a persons head and it will even be able to define a flea in the hair. 5 MP is enough to make clear 8x10 prints.There are 6+ MegaPixel cameras out there, but at the consumer level there is really no point in spending the money on one (7.2 MP won't come in handy unless you are making 15x20 prints or are a student taking pictures through a microscope or a telescope--it is more of a prosumer level) All around, while Sony's camera lenses may not compare with Canon or Olympus, Sony makes up for it with their superior knowledge of how to make a great consumer digital device and turn it into a decent digital camera. It is a great value for the price.

    5-0 out of 5 stars oh so nice!
    After owning 2 Canon cameras over the last 6 years, I new for my new one I did not want a proprietary battery format again. This Sony is great, and it uses AA batteries! I rotate between the pair of recharbles it came with and 4 more rechargables I bought. Highly recommend. The pictures and videos are very good. Also, the video clips aren't limited to any amount of time, only by your memory.

    5-0 out of 5 stars This camera was buried in the snow and still worked!
    I just need to rave about this camera.I loved it from day one it is easy to use and has so many options.It is also a great price.The thing that has completely shocked me and amazed me is that my camera was accidently taken outside and left outside by a younger sibling of mine and it still works.He thought it would be funny to bury it in the snow this past winter.I had on clue where it was it sat outside buried in snow for at least a week and then when I finally found it the snow had all melted so it went through a lot.Never in my dreams did I think that this camera would still work.I took out the batteries replaced them with fresh batteries and took out the memory card and replaced it with the same memory card.Hit the on switch and it turned on!I've been using it ever since with absolutely no problems.So if you want a camera that will take a beating with lots of options and that is easy to use this is the one for you!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great investment!
    Regardless if you are a novice or professional this camera is great all around to use. Easy to take with you anywhere and not as bulky as I thought it would be. Buy nothing less than a 5MP camera you'll be disappointed if you don't.

    Accessories:
    No need for a case becasue the lens closes if you leave it on for 30-60 seconds. More memory and more rechargeable batteries are a must. I always carry IKEA regular AA batteries when I'm going for an extended night out...trust me it helps!

    Enjoy! ... Read more

    3-0 out of 5 stars Pretty Good When It Works
    My Gripes with the Spyder2PRO (applies mostly to Windows platform):

    1. You won't know if the unit itself is miscalibrated.
    2. Although the basic documentation is good, it lacks details. Such as, "How does the ColorVision Profile Chooser program affect Window's Color Management Settings and how do the two interact?"
    3. Sometimes, the Profile Chooser fails to load your profile when coming out of Windows' hibernation/standby state.
    4. The other "value-add" software that comes with it is not that great. Just buy the regular Spyder2 package.

    I work primarily with photoshop and web graphics and do not do any print color matching. I wanted to merely calibrate all my CRT, LCD and laptop monitors just enough so that there would be some tonal consistency. I wasn't going for professional pre-press accuracy.

    The first Spyder unit I received wasn't properly calibrated at the factory so all my monitors turned out to be too red! Even after several attempts to recalibrate and profile... So after a few email exchanges with Tech support, I returned it for a new unit. (Thanks Amazon)

    The second unit seemed to work fine. Except, now, I have this nagging feeling that if it wasn't, I wouldn't really know since I don't have a reference monitor.

    In any case, it did a fairly good job of matching my two different LCDs as well as my CRT. (NEC 1760NX, Sony SDM-M51 and ViewSonic G90f) However, on my laptop, the Profile Chooser fails to reload the profile when coming-out of its hibernation state. When I asked tech support about this, they shot me a canned email that didn't really resolve the issue. Now, I have to reselect the profile each time I resume.

    (Tech support was prompt in their response. But, it seemed like that they really didn't read my email thoroughly.)

    Overall, I'm satisfied with the product and I would recommend the unit. (You really can't beat the price.) I think it could be better if it had the following:

    1. Better documentation on how the ColorVision's color management software affects and interacts with the platforms (windows) exisiting color management software.
    2. Some reference prints of some sort where I can compare my calibrated monitor with; so that I can know that I've come close to reference material. (I don't know if this is possible or not.)
    3. Get rid of the software bugs! ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Certainly Good Enoughand Weighs less than 40#
    I think the reviews of this product are just plain picky.There is a point when lots more money will buy just a hair's worth improvement in performance and quality.The big remote ain't THAT big and doesn't get lost.The menu and set up are easy-easy-easy.The sound is just fine in my rather large room.

    And to the reviewer who said the connections were impossible for him, my fingers are quite arthritic and it was fine. Because of the weight and the slimness, I was able to hold the TV at an angle or turn it to make the connections easily.

    As for resolution, yes, regular tv isn't all that great, but I think it depends more on the quality of input.We compared resolutions using digital photos of various settings from a verrrry high end camera, the differences were very noticeable, and the highest resolution photos were just awesome.

    I don't yet have a computer that can be hooked up so cannot comment, but I am tickled pink to have such a low weight, easy to move about, big screen TV for such a low price.I think it's a bargain.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A fantastic bargain
    The Backstory: I wanted a 30" LCD and headed to my local Best Buy. The 3 models they had on display had picture quality that matched the price difference. The $2000 TV looked best; the Westinghouse, at $1100, looked horrible- colors were extreme, etc. I figured I would fiddle with the settings on the set, and sure enough the contrast was jacked up. A salesman quickly approached as I was tuning the contrast down, and quickly informed me that "they just plug the TV in straight out of the box, I shouldn't need to do that". After successfully completing my mission, I stepped back for another comparison, and voila, the Westinghouse was absolutely on par with the Sony. Conspiracy? You be the judge. I got lucky enough to score a flawless open box, bringing my price under $980.

    The review: The TV comes with a set of 3' component and RCA cables, so if your receiver is going to be close enough to your TV, don't splurge on the monster cable.

    This unit fits stably on my mantle above the fireplace. It looks spectacular, and the colors are brilliant and vibrant. Glare in my bright apartment is not a problem.

    The speakers seem adequate, but of course you'll be hooking up your own. The menus on the set are extremely intuitive, and easy to figure out without having to read the instructions. The 3 aspect modes were not well documented; in order to see the difference I paused a DVD on a scenic shot, and then flipped between the modes, noting the image boundaries and cut-off or distortion.

    The tv in-box was awkward for me to move up 3 flights of stairs on my own. The set itself is relatively light, and was easy enough for me to lift to the height of my mantle.

    The best value in LCD TV's to date. Highly recommended.

    4-0 out of 5 stars A great deal, with a problem (and a simple workaround)
    I bought this television at Best Buy, despite the fact that the picture quality was really terrible.I was visually comparing all the LCD TV sets they had for sale, and the Westinghouse was visibly showing some kind of refresh problem.It looked like the kind of visible refresh you would get on an extremely old laptop LCD (before TFT screens).I checked the specs and the Westinghouse TV claimed a 16ms refresh rate and an active matrix LCD screen.These are the same specs as my extremely lovely LCD computer monitor, which does not have a visible refresh.So either Best Buy's model was defective, or there was something else going on.I decided to hedge that Best Buy was sending a crummy signal to the TV, and bought it and took it home.

    I unpacked the TV and hooked it up and turned it on, and was delighted to discover that the TV did not seem to have the visible refresh problem the one in the store had.I looked on the internet and discovered a couple of plausible culprits:1. This TV reacts badly to being hooked up to a signal splitter, and all TVs on sale at Best Buy are being fed signals that have been split many times.This degraded signal may cause the rolling visible refresh pattern.2.Westinghouse's own FAQ at http://westinghousedigital.com/support/faq.shtml describes the problem as being a "ground loop".Purchase a cheap 3 prong to 2 prong adaptor for the power cord.This will cut the loop and clear up the picture.We tried this and it worked!

    I'm glad I took a chance on this TV, as the next competitor was $500 more expensive and suffered a bit from glare (it had a glossier screen).This TV is perfect for viewing even if the blinds in the living room are open.I especially like how it has inputs for VGA and DVI, so you can hook your computer up to it.The only real downside is that the inputs and outputs aren't very easy to get to, so be sure to have an extra person on hand to balance the TV while you try to fiddle with the stuff on the underside.

    If you can't afford the absolute best, and you'd just like to settle for something adequate and reasonably priced that can do a lot of nice things, then go for this TV.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Exceptional 30" LCD TV at the most affordable price!
    I got this TV from Best Buy (January 6, 2005) and it is performing exceptionally well...no complains. I have also upgraded to HDTV cable and the picture quality is unbelievable. Even the packaging is high qulity and flawless to protect the product during shipping...I guess it goes with the brand name and reputation of Westinghouse products. Some reviews regarding the remote control are agreeable as the remote is a bit large...but has no quality or engineering issues....in fact the larger remote may be useful to your specific needs. If you don't like the remote...I would recommend you to get a GE Univeral Remote from AMAZON.COM or Circuit City, which costs under $18 and is compatible with this model.

    The 30" model was so hot at Best Buy that they sold out in just 7 days after the sale! Don't pay more than $1500 for the 30" Westinghouse LCD Model. Yes, that includes tax!

    Do your home work well and invest in sensible products with good company reputation.
    Hope this was helpful in your decision.





    5-0 out of 5 stars awesome tv for price
    I bought this tv after extensive research on lcd's and plasmas in it's size range. I picked the westinghouse b/c of the price, as the specs were similar to those of the same size tv's by manufacturer's like sony, etc, that cost hundreds more. I got it at bestbuy for 1499. I've read some reviews that are not so good, but i don't understand what they were looking at. I am using a SA 4200HD box from cablevision. The HD programming looks amazing. Of course regular cable doesn't look so good, but that's the case with all lcd/plasma hdtv's. The real HD programming is beautiful though. I'm using monster component cables. The midgrade ones I guess that cost about 70 bucks. Not the most expensive and not the cheapest. I did notice a huge difference when compared to the cheap component cables cablevision provided. Great Tv. Great picture. wish there was more HD channels and programming though.
    The remote IS a little bulky and big though. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best... Panel... Ever...
    Hands down.Samsung rocks in the LCD department.1600x1200, not a single bad pixel.Bright, fast, kickass.I'd give it 6 stars if I could.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Portrait Mode is Plus and Great for Movies
    I bought this monitor after browsing monitors ranging in size of 17" to 21".The size is spectacular, although the price from a 19" to 20" to 21" is significant, so only get this one if you value those extra 1 or 2 inches or will outgrow one of the smaller sizes (note the resolution jump from 19" to 20" though).I was a bit nervous when I purchased this monitor because I wasn't sure if the extra few hundred were worth it, but I am very please so far.It is huge, sharp, switches to portrait mode (more convenient than you may think), and plays movies quite well.

    The portrait mode is great for documents and surfing the web.I can view 1 1/2 pages of Word documents and search web pages faster.Be sure to get the software to switch your computer to portrait mode (I'm not sure if it usually comes with the monitor; I use PivotPro).I also sometimes do homework with as much viewing space of the document as a 17" monitor and still have a movie playing in the bottom quarter of the screen... one of the many conveniences of the portrait mode.Also, increase the sensitivity of your mouse (or get a mouse with more sensitivity) so scrolling across the screen isn't an inconvenience.

    I watch movies quite frequently and, when viewing from 4' or more away, the only noticable differences from a TV is higher resolution in the monitor (pro) and very slight distortion with fast movements (con, but barely noticable).I haven't played games on this monitor (yet), so I cannot vouch for the performance there.

    Overall, I am very pleased.Also, no dead pixels or blemishes (at least yet).I don't think I will ever outgrow this monitor; an increase in size would actually be an inconvenience for most of my uses because then there is too much to keep track of (only pros I can think of for a larger monitor would be dual document viewing and a larger screen for movies).I would highly recommend this monitor for anyone considering an 18" through 24" monitor!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Monitor, I love the ability to rotate the Screen
    I saw this monitor set up in a "Big Box" store when I was on vacation and after using it in the store for a while, ordered one sent to my local "Big box" after checking prices online.The small footprint, lack of heat thrown off by a CRT, crisp display (I use the DVI so I can't speak to analog issues, but it looked fine in the store) and ease of setup is all I could want.I went to PivotPro's website and D/L'ed a free upgrade and haven't had any problems with switching between landscape and portrait modes.

    I find myself using the monitor in it's vertical portrait mode, except for gaming, as both web pages and documents usually view better this way.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Samsung 213T
    I bought this monitor about 5 months ago now and love it. I have it coupled with a new Nvidia GeForce 6800 256 MB graphics card. For those of you who worry about "Ghosting" when game playing I have not seen it. Half life 2 and Doom 3 look truely amazing. With full resolution 1600x1200, colors are vibrant and blow away the normal "glass" monitor I had before. The monitor also pivots any way you can think of and comes with cool software that will keep everything legible no matter how the monitor is turned. The size is great and it's footprint is small.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Wow!
    This is a beautiful monitor--thin bevel, clear and sharp picture, etc.You will not be disappointed. ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Happy with my purchase
    I wasn't planning to buy a new monitor, but my Vivitron21 CRT finally gave out and I had to replace it. Friends who already have LCD monitors swear by them, so I checked around and eventually settled on the VP191B. I've had it about 2 weeks, and it has done everything well so far.

    Because I do some editing of home video, I was a little concerned at setup because the monitor pivot software drivers are not Windows certified, at least for XP (the installation instructions tell you to agree to complete the install even if you get a warning saying it may not be safe-I'm docking one star for that). Happily, I have had no problems with Pinnacle Studio or Muvee AutoProducer - previewing and viewing seem to work fine.

    One other minor complaint would be that the pivot software seems to slow the response time some when you right click the desktop to see the context menu - the various rotation options are now listed directly in that menu, which is convenient, but it takes a few extra seconds for the pop-up to appear (that doesn't sound like much until you're wondering why the cursor is stuck on the hourglass when it never was before).

    Other comments would be in line with previous reviewers - bright clear picture, sweet spot in price vs. monitor size, convenient controls, etc. For viewing web pages and word processing documents, the rotating monitor works great. Of course it doesn't really help when you're editing widescreen video! And it can be confusing to the next person if you leave the monitor rotated - the last rotation setting is retained, but it doesn't take effect immediately at boot-up, so start-up images appear rotated.

    Still, these seem like small quibbles with what has otherwise been a satisfying purchase. I would certainly recommend it for the performance and the size convenience if you're in the market for a new monitor and don't want to drop a grand or more on a larger monitor but are willing to spend the extra for the lighter weight and the small form factor.

    5-0 out of 5 stars What a View (Sonic!)
    These are excellent LCD monitors. Excellent picture quality.
    I purchased them for use in a two monitor set-up for video editing. The "thin edge" design lends itself well to this configuration. You can really get them nice and close together...giving the set-up more of a seamless look. The monitors are fairly light and take up very little space. Coming from a much larger...and heavier CRT monitor this is a welcome change. Set up is quick with the included software. I did have an issue matching the two monitors...left one seemed sharper and more brilliant than the right...but Amazon quickly sent a replacement. I was very impressed at the customer service in this case.
    Be sure to check settings in your video card as this will contain much more user settings than the ViewSonics onscreen display offers. This may help clear any issues for proper set-up.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Very surprised, very pleased!!
    A year ago I knew nothing about PC'ing, but I feel that I have advanced to the point to where I needed a better and bigger monitor. In this monitor you get all that and a whole lot more, a lot of the features I have not used yet but I know with this monitor that it gives me room to grow. The support that I have received from Amazon and Viewsonic has been fantastic!! This is one of the best decisions I have made lately!!!

    5-0 out of 5 stars HOLY COW!
    (For some reason this review got put under the VP912b model, so I had to copy and paste it back under this model where it belongs.)

    It took a long time for me to overcome my reluctance about spending over five hundred dollars for a monitor when my whole Dell PC cost about the same, but now that I have it I couldn't be any happier.

    This Viewsonic is bright and sharp, text very clear, contrast is excellent but gentle on the eyes, photos are vibrant yet detailed.

    Best of all, it pivots ninety degrees...allowing me to view entire Web and document pages without having to scroll. Mama mia, this feature is simply PRICELESS! Especially for someone like me who works with text docs, spreadsheets and web pages all the time. It makes me chuckle when I recall the days (just a couple of years ago) when I would've had to shell out well over twelve hundred dollars to get some massive vertical CRT tube to have that capability.

    Setup was quick and painless out of the box, though I did have to manually install the monitor drivers---probably a quirk of Windows XP, but the instructions the installer wizard provided were excellent so that was a snap. The Pivot Point software which flips the display image was even easier to install, took all of about 3 minutes.

    And look, Ma---no dead pixels either! Probably because of the nice beefy packaging it came in...I noticed during my shopping that the cheaper makes often come in smaller boxes for the same screen size.

    Even though this monitor is listed as having only 250 cd/m brightness, one of the first things I did when I installed it was REDUCE the brightness setting, from the default 90% down to just over 30%! Strangely enough, when I was testing out different monitors in stores which also were rated for 250 cd/m (Samsung, Acer, NEC, Sony, Envision, Provision, etc.) the Viewsonic (and it was the lower end VX-910 model) had by far the brightest picture. Which to me suggests that a lot of LCD manfufacturers must be fudging their numbers big time!

    I guess what people say about Viewsonics is pretty much dead on: these are beautiful monitors, very easy to use, and they easily blow away higher priced competitors like Sony.

    I work out of my home with my own business so imagine my "surprise" when my former 19 inch flat screen CRT went out on Monday morning.In these last few years I learned the hard way that with computers and add-ons it pays to buy good equipment.I needed a new monitor and FAST!Since I design graphics it had to be good.I ordered this with 24 hour delivery.
    It came on time and it worked out of the box in less than 5 min.The color is fantastic...the monitor was expensive but I'm worth it. ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great entry level lcd HD tv
    The picture is awesome ! I have had this tv about 2 weeks and there is only 1 real negative. The bad is there is NO remote code for this tv. I called tech support and they could not give me any code. I got a Samsung T-451 HD tuner hooked up those stupid rabbit ears and viola I had HD tv. I was impressed even though it was 720p.I use this tv as my computer monitor set at 1024x768 and it looks great. The whole screen is filled up and it doesn't look distorted. I had read some negative reviews about the sound on this tv, but the sound is awesome. It has 2-way speakers and I only turn the sound up to about 1/4 volume and it is great. The inputs are broken up into two banks one digital and one analog. You can't put two digital inputs in the main & pip and vice versa, but you can 1 analog & 1 digital.
    You can watch SAT thru comp. or s-vid and put the computer in PIP but only if you have eyes of a hawk since the pip is about 7" diag. I ordered a dvi-d cable for the hd tuner to see if the picture is any better in HDTV than from using the 15pin d-sub computer cable. There is quite a bit of heat coming from the front of the screen but I think that is normal. A friend reccommended that I buy a UPS with AVR and I did for precautionary reasons ( Belkin F6C550-AVR ). Overall I really like this tv , I give it about 4.5 stars ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars THE PROJECTOR FOR THE TRAVELING SPEAKER
    Projectors have shrunk both in size and price; This unit is the perfect example.

    The Ultra-portable InFocus LP70+ is less than $1900. It boasts 1,400 lumens, 4,000 hour lamp, VGA (1024 x 768) resolution, 2.4 lbs, 2.58 x 6.1 x 7.8 (90% of the size of a cigar box), keystone correction of 15 degrees, 22.2' max image size, 1 watt built-in speaker, 120-240 volts, 1100:1 contrast and a 2 year warranty.

    When ordered through Amazon.com/JR Music World, there is a $50 discount and no sales tax (outside of NY) for a savings of nearly $200. Total price before shipping: $1,873.33.

    InFocus and other manufacturers have other even smaller models but they are not as bright. The LP 70+ provide the most bang for the buck. You can find less-expensive projectors ($799, $899) but they will be SVGA (800 x 600) resolution (fuzzy).

    Many hotels charge $500/day for LCD projectors. Meeting planners will love to hear you can supply your own projection equipment.

    I have used a Proxima x350 for the past three years. It is a great projector but the LP 70+ is much brighter and much smaller. I use my projector four to five times a week; I fly 4,000 miles/week. Weight and volume are major issues. The LP 70+ is more than a pound lighter and significantly smaller. Whether you are designing parachutes or carrying luggage, weight and volume are of great concern. Search for the smallest and lightest equipment.

    I love the LP 70+; you will too.

    Product Description

    The challenge to Sony engineers: pack a 4.1-megapixel, 3X- optical zoom camera into a hip little package a fraction the size of a candy bar. Their answer? The elegant confection that is the Cyber-shot DSC-L1. Measuring 3-3/4 x 1-3/4 x 1 inch, the L1 model is powered by Sony's Real Imaging Processor circuitry, delivering outstanding shot-to-shot speed, stamina and quick start-up time for catching the action as soon as it happens. For the first time in the ultra-compact class of digital cameras, the Cyber-shot L1 model delivers a 1.5-inch transflective LCD, making it easier to see what's on the LCD even in bright sunlight. It also has a new Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar 3X optical zoom lens, setting the stage for picture quality typically delivered by larger, more expensive digital cameras. Sony's past expertise in miniaturization has enabled them to achieve a balance between design and such new features as the world's smallest mechanical zoom lens. The DSC-L1 has speedy auto-focus and autoexposure options to snap the best picture the first time. You can quickly select the best setting based on the shooting conditions by choosing from one of seven preset modes, including twilight, snow, beach and fireworks. Four newly developed technologies - including a linear focus drive and a compact highresolution optical system - combine to produce the ultra-small lens. T ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars I am not a tech genius, but I know when something works....
    This camera is my first foray into the world of digital cameras, and I am smitten.I found the instructions easy to follow, the quality of pictures excellent, and the value hard to beat.

    The only thing I don't love is the software that came along with the camera, but it is functional and does what I need it to do as far as printing and viewing photos.

    The "video" camera feature is great, too--I love sending quick hellos to family and friends, and this camera makes it easy.

    A good value and a great buy.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Amazing Camera
    I am an Art Student at UMass, and I was getting assignments where I had to take some really upclose images of some 3-D models that I have made and this camera does an amazing job.It captures beautiful lighting, it can handle very close up and crisp pictures.I recommend this camera to anyone, but especially to fellow art students.I was worried that it wouldn't work like I wanted it to, but I love it.Its not for the professional photographer, but I really enjoy what it can do.It is also small and compact which is nice and you can also take short video camera files, which is always great fun

    2-0 out of 5 stars Not as good as expected
    This is my second digital camera, my first one was Olympus D-560 3MP. I am not at all a sophisticated user, and here is my experience with two cameras. Compared to the Olympus one, I am very dissapointed at the quality of the Sony pictures, especially after reading all the positive reviews. When taking pictures of a moving object in automatic mode, the pictures turn out very blurry. It did not happen with my Olympus one. I checked in the manual and found out that you can adjust the shutter speed but only in manual mode. However, i am not sophisticated enough to also program the focus, the light, etc. in the manual mode. I just want to have faster shutter speed in automatic mode, but I can't seem to know how.

    One plus though, this Sony camera takes pictures much faster than my old one. But given the choice of having quality pictures vs. having a lot of picture with low quality, I would go for the high quality one. I just spent a week vacation abroad and the picture quality was so bad that I end up deleting a lot of them. The blurriness did not really show on the tiny LCD screen but you can not miss it on your computer screen.

    5-0 out of 5 stars The best cam i had ever bought.
    This is the best cam, it takes pics, it has a timer, it can record videos WITH sound, i swear if you buy this you will not regret it.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Picture Quality
    This camera is amazing for such a low price. I paid $200 for it plus $62 dollars for a SanDisk 512MB Memory Stick Pro. I definitely recommend getting that memory stick. It allows you to take 249 fine quality pictures at 4MP (image size 2304 x 1728) and 2994 in VGA mode, which is an image size of 640 x 480. The 16MB memory stick it comes with takes only 8 pictures if used at 4MP and 97 in VGA. The picutes are still very clear and crisp in VGA.

    I've been using the camera for days and I still haven't had to recharge the batteries it came with, which were half empty by the way. It's very small and light. Plus it looks great. The only thing is that it's a bit bulky so you can't fit it in your pocket. It's very easy to use. I still haven't read the manual and this is the first digital camera I own.

    It comes with software but you don't really need it. You can use MS Paint, Paint Shop Pro Or Photoshop to resize, rotate or whatever it is you want to do and it still retains the picture quality. I don't know if this happens to everyone but when you plug in the USB, it says that it's a hi-speed USB device plugged into a non hi-speed USB hub. It also says that it might not function at reduced speed and that you need a hi-speed USB host but that's not true. It functions just fine. Another thing is that if you take off the flash, the picture will look kind of yellow if the area is not well lit. That's the only complain I have. Go ahead and buy it while the price is still low. You won't regret it. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great consumer-level point-and-shoot digital camera
    If you are just an amateur photographer that is either finally switching from analog to digital or just want a decent camera to take on family vacations or school projects, this is a great camera. It is small, lightweight, and does just about anything you could possibly need it to do. It won't take pictures of hummingbirds feeding across a forest bed, but it will take a decent photo of the grand canyon. The quality of the 3x optical zoom is really good, but the picture is sacrificed slightly as you try to artifically enhance it with the digital zoom. The battery life is good enough to take on extended trips from your hotel or on a hike without having to carry around a charger or spare batteries. If you plan on taking lots of high quality large photos, you will need to get a larger memory stick (64 MB will work, 128 MB even better), but the memory stick it comes with will be enough to photograph your child's birthday party as long as you download the photos onto your computer afterwards. At 4.1 MegaPixels, this camera will pick up hairs on a persons head and it will even be able to define a flea in the hair. 4.1 MP is just barely enough to make clear 8x10 prints. There are 5+ MegaPixel cameras out there, but at the consumer level there is really no point in spending the money on one (5 MP won't come in handy unless you are student taking pictures through a microscope or a telescope, it is more of a prosumer level) All around, while Sony's camera lenses may not compare with Canon or Olympus, Sony makes up for it with their superior knowledge of how to make a great consumer digital device and turn it into a decent digital camera. It is a great value for the price.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Camera
    This Camera is one of the best in its price range. It takes beautiful clear pictures and can be used right out of the box, but its worth learning all its features. The included memory holds about 20-25 pictures so I upgraded to 128mb. I reccomend getting a 128mb card and the Sony camera case. Not only is this one of the best cameras in its class it includes decent software and rechargeable batteries that are at least a 20$ value.
    HIGHLY reccomend over canon,kodak, and fuji. One more thing this camera has CARL Zeiss lens (if you dont know, great lens) all the competetors have generic lens.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Excellent camera... period.
    After much deliberation and research, given I was about to shell out over 300 bucks, I went with the Sony DSC-S90. I won't go on and on about specifications since you can read them for yourselves.But after using this camera for almost one week, I have found it to be very easy to use, it gives you great looking pictures (thanks toCarl Zeiss and 4.1 megapixels), and it even takes MPEG movies. The HUGE 2.5 inch LCD screen is bright and clear, and you're given the option to use the optical viewfinder. A handy feature in bright sunlight.

    The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was because of the lackluster design of the data/video/audio cable. It plugs into the bottom of the camera, which means you have to lay it on it's back (the LCD side, ouch!) or its front (the lens side, double ouch!!). I'd hate to damage or scratch either of these, although in all fairness, the lens is closed during file transfer process.

    I'd recommend this beauty, but get yourself at least a 256 Meg Memory Stick Pro, a small carrying case, and add those to the price.ENJOY!!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Very pleased with my first digital camera-easy to use!
    Although this is my first digital camera, I did a fair amount of research and shopping to decide on this camera.I am a "techie" and "gadget guy" by nature, but this camera is very easy to use right out of the box.A primary reason I bought this camera was for its ease of use for my wife and children.

    My decision came down to two cameras:this and the Canon Powershot A520.They have very similar specifications.However, for the same price, the Sony came with rechargeable batteries and charger and has a WHOPPING 2.5 inch LCD screen!

    I am very pleased with my purchase and how the camera performs so far.
