5-0 out of 5 stars Great consumer-level point-and-shoot digital camera
If you are advanced consumer, or thinking about prosumer, 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 7 MegaPixels, this camera will pick up the fuzz on a bee head as its sitting in a flower. 7 MP is enough to make clear 15x20 prints. 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.

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. ...

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

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 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

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

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.

3-0 out of 5 stars Great features - poor pictures
I did months worth of research before purchasing a camera. I was excitied when the S60 model came out last month because it had all the features I was looking for at just the right price. However, after a week of using it I am not so happy with the quality of the pictures and video it takes. To help you decide here are my main likes and dislikes:
Likes
- Video limited only by memory size
- Carl Zeiss lens
- In-camera photo editing (what a great idea! in theory you don't even need a computer; just edit, save, and print in store from memory stick)
- 2" screen
- Viewfinder (for bright settings when you can't use the screen)
- Easy to hold (my 4 yr old had no problems holding this camera
- Uses AA bateries
- Fast, fast, fast (no problems catching the kids running around)
- Built-in lens cap
Dislikes
- Weight (heavier than my 35mm point and shoot)
- Red-eye (even with the red-eye feature just about everyone had red eyes)
- Picture quality (the skin tones just don't look right and many of the picutres look washed out)
- Video quality (I used this feature to capture my daughters open house and the quality is very grainy and blurry, even at the 640 standard mode.)

Even with all the features I like, I'm returning this camera because of the poor picture and video quality. Back to more researching. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Works quite well
I've used my Spyder2 on a Mac iBook and a Dell 2350 running Windows XP on a 17in Dell LCD flatscreen.The monitor calibrator and software in both cases did a much better job than I could do on my own with Adobe Gamma or other judgement-based calibrators.After calibration, pictures on my monitors appear much more like the prints I get from Kodak Gallery (formerly Ofoto), both in color and tone (to the extent that a projected-light RGB image can look like a reflected light CMYK image.)I haven't tested the system on a CRT monitor.

One gripe: I bought my system new from Amazon, and it came packaged as new, but the Spyder was scuffed and clearly had been used previously.It wasn't worth my time and energy to return it since it functions fine, but I don't think this was an honest business practice on the part of ColorVision. ...

1-0 out of 5 stars Buyer beware
Failed after three weeks.The power mechanism appears to be faulty, and the unit will no longer turn on.The monitor was connected to an expensive surge protector, so a surge did not cause the failure.Purchased through Amazon and Tiger Direct.The monitor looked very nice until it failed, so if you want to take a chance, you will enjoy using it. Hopefully, Amazon and Tiger Direct will honor their guarantee and replace the monitor.

5-0 out of 5 stars [...] cheaper than at the Computer Store where I bought mine
[...]

I'm visually impaired, so I need a large, crisp monitor that's flicker free.When I started looking, the choice was between the Sony and the Apple 23" monitor.While I thought the Apple's case, etc. was more durable, I chose the Sony because the contrast ratio was 500:1 as opposed to 400:1 for the Apple.

Letters and graphics are crisp.I needed to find drivers to make the aspect ratio more correct on my screen.Type tends to spread out more with the wider aspect screens, which makes it hard to read.

Overall. a good choice, I just wish I had not paid so much for it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Gaming/General Computer Monitor
This is probably the greatest gaming LCD Monitor that I've seen.I have not yet installed EQ2, but WoW runs great and smooth even at 1920x1200 with a 3.4Ghz processor...I would highly recommend this for the purpose of programming, development, business work, and games.

The star trekish buttons in the front really adds a nice touch!Even though it took me a while to figure out how to turn it on, haha.

No matter, great job Sony!It's to be loved!

1-0 out of 5 stars Uneven Color
I purchased this monitor after hearing reports about color problems with Apple Cinema Displays. I was dismayed to see a pinkish tint on the Sony as well. It was most noticeable viewing gray Web pages--it looked like there was blush in one corner. Presumably Sony and Apple use the same LCD manufacturer. I returned this monitor and purchased a smaller one without any color problems.

4-0 out of 5 stars First impressions ...
When I started looking to purchase a large monitor I ready to get the new Apple 23" monitor for my PC however there have been so many posts about the pink and yellow hues, plus complaints about the 1 year Apple warranty versus 3 years for the Sony and since I have had 2 different Sony monitors in the past and was very happy with them , I decided to get with the Sony and ordered it from Amazon.com. To start I like to say that I am very impressed with the service at Amazon.

Here are some impressions and a strange problem I had to begin with:
The first monitor had something stuck between the clear coating and the LCD screen. It was either a small piece if hair or dust, a very small one however very annoying and definitely something that must have happened during the manufacturing so I called Amazon and the monitor was replaced immediately. I did not even try to change the resolution on the first one read on ...
The replacement monitor was perfect however it would not display 1920 x 1200 resolution using the DVI connection.I could get 1920 x 1200 only by using the VGA connection however the image quality is definitely mediocre under VGA and at close to $2000 I want great, not good!My video card is the NVIDIA 5700 Ultra with 128 MB Ram.I spend quite a bit of time with Sony and NVIDIA support removing and reinstalling drivers, the card, changing settings, editing the .inf files and so on. Finally was told (after being elevated to secondary tech support) that this is a native DVI problem, it is not fixable and if I wanted 1920 x 1200 I had to settle for the VGA connection and "live with it!"
Before giving up all together I decided to try something else and borrowed a friend's new ATI Radeon 9600 XT card. Well, as soon as I installed it I was able to change the resolution immediately to 1920x 1200 without a hitch!The specs between the ATI and NVIDIA are similar so I do not understand what the problem is but be prepared that if you experience the same problem you may need to purchase a new video card.

Now the problem I am facing is that after a couple of days that pink hue appeared especially around bold letters in white or grey background and this is the problem many have been complaining about with the Apple 23" monitors. It is not bad however it is there and no matter how many adjustments I have made, it refuses to go away. Many users might not even notice or not pay attention to it however if you do photography, or work on large spreadsheets it might bother you.
At this point I have been using the monitor for a week and unless I somehow convince myself within the next couple of days that I can live with it, I am afraid I shall return the monitor even though I think this is a great looking and performing piece of equipement.



Here is an update of my review above:
After a bit of trial and error I was able to solve the pink outline around the letters by choosing new settings in the Clear Type and by changing those the letters are now crisp and clear.
Since placing a url in the review is not allowed you can search for "Microsoft Clear Type" and then experiment with the different settings.
Another way to solve the red shade around the fonts is by going to My computer/properties/advanced/visual effects and clear the button "smooth edges on screen fonts' However even though the setting gets rid of the red, it is not as good as changing the clear type because the fonts are not as sharp.
I am very happy with the monitor now and would highly recommend it.

Amazon.com Product Description

Reasonably priced and sleekly designed, the ViewSonic VE-710 is a great choice for both home and workplace applications. Featuring up to 1,280 x 1,024 resolution (for both PC and Mac), a sharp 450:1 contrast ratio, and 300 nits of brightness, images are crisp, clear, and bright enough for viewing under everyday lighting conditions. The VE-710 also features a fast video response time (25 ms typical) to ensure that motion video and action-packed games are smooth and flicker-free.

This active matrix LCD offers wide 140-degree horizontal viewing angle (130 degrees vertical), letting you share and inspect onscreen graphics without having to crowd viewers immediately in front of the monitor. It features a unique 90-degree fold-up base design for easy wall-mounting. The panel by itself is just 2.2 inches thick, so it has a very slim profile no matter where you place it or how you configure it. An anti-glare coating reduces glare and the resulting eye fatigue.

Customizable settings include image adjustments, color controls, and menu language choices; these are accessed through an intuitive onscreen interface. ViewMatch color adjustments let you calibrate your settings to match a number of industry color standards (sRGB, 9300K, 6500K–default, 5400K, RGB). OnView controls also include an OSD lock that prevents accidental changes to your settings once you've adjusted them to your liking.

The ViewSonic VE-710 has it's own internal power supply with hard power switch. It comes with a handy installation CD-ROM that automates the installation process and automatically configures settings for optimized performance. It is backed by a three-year warranty on parts and labor.

5-0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Monitor
I bought this one for my home computer and it made my old monitor look like it was cheap.This is an outstanding monitor.I am very pleased with it and if you got one you would be too.I would recommend this one over sony or any of the others.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great bright colors
I got this monitor for my office and it is amazing.I used to use a 14 inch screen that my laptop had with it and I have to say, this is an immense improvement.The resolution it handles (1280x1024) is much better than the one my laptop displayed (1024x768).

The colors are bright and sharp and the styling of this monitor is great.Real slim frame and it looks very high tech.

Highly reccomend this item - especially for the price - it is a good buy. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Great LCD HDTV - doesn't deserve bad review
This LCD TV has a great picture - I don't see any evidence of light leakage.Curiously, the default settings for brightness is 70% and the contrast is 25% - I reversed these settings to have less brightness and more contrast.The picture was greatly improved.

I have not yet had digital cable or HDTV installed, but have connected analog cable and my DVD player to the set.The number of available connections is great - two TV tuners for easy PIP.The DVD playback was crisp and beautiful, through the component video connection.Even the analog TV looks decent from my seat on the couch.I have noticed that some cable channels seem to broadcast in higher quality than the local stations.I definitely think that the TV picture is better because of the larger coax cables that I have - better shielding.

The cables supplied are as follows:1 power cord (obviously), 1 RGB video cable, 1 PC audio cable, and 1 cheap coax cable (throw this one away).I don't understand why they even ship with these cables - I think that the majority of people would not even use them.Mine did not come with a composite video cable.

The remote is a little large, but is easy to hold in your hand.It has all the basic functions and works well from most angles and distances.

The PIP and POP (two screens next to each other) work well also, though I would like to be able to move the PIP around without with buttons on the remote (instead of going to the main menu).Previewing other channels is a snap (though drives my wife crazy).

The sound is acceptable, but a subwoofer would add to the depth.We previously had the DVD sound output to our stereo system, I may revert back to that method - but then I did not really expect the TV to have stereo-system quality sound.

The bottom line:We were replacing an old 27" CRT TV and set a budget for the purchase.This 30" fit our budget, has an image size that is larger than the old set, with an image quality that is truly great.

1-0 out of 5 stars Buyer beware! UNEVEN backlight problem (light leakage!)
I originally purchased the Viewsonic N3020W which turned out to have electronic swtich defects (the unit would not switch off with remote control); got another replacement one month later from the distributor with the same problem; then I was told the N3020W model had been discontinued and no more replacement available. Tech support was not helpful and kept procrastinating until almost 3 months after the orginal purchase, I was forced to take this Viewsonic N3000W as a substitue (No refund, beware!)

The problem with N3000W is having excessive light leakage (a manufacturing defect for LCD panel, search Google for details). When the display has no image, instead of total blackness on the display, this N3000W shows uneven blackness, the left half (45-50%) of the display is light in blackness (hazy black)and the right side is totally black. As a result, all displays on this LCD is always bright on the left and darker on the right side of the screen. This defect is markedly enhanced if you have dark scenes with even darkness on both sides (Try Alien Resurrection DVD and watch the the last few tunnel vision like scenes when Winona Ryder was commuicating with the computer before liftoff with the spacecraft. You will be surprised the left side is hazy black in color and the the right side is rich black.)

Again, I was given another N3000W replacement 3 weeks later (3 month after the original purchase) which has the same excessive light leakage except it is just a little bit better. Again No Refund from the US distributor.

While waiting for the replacement units, I was forced to purchase a Syntax model just before X'mas last year and found the Syntax model (around $1000) far better in display (practically no light leakage) than this Viewsonic N3000W model.

Practically, all the well-known brands have minimal light leakage

If you plan to purchase this Viewsonic N3000W unit, be sure you try above DVD for testing and make sure you can return the unit to the vendor for full refund. The US distributor would not give you any refund at all. Do not bother to return the unit to the US distributor in California. ... Read more
