I’m looking for a 19” or 20” TV and am very tempted by this. The 19” sets seem to mainly use 1440x900 resolution panels whereas the 20” sets often use 1368x768 panels. I’m suspicious of 1440x900 panels as I assume they are really meant for monitors so may be average at best for TV usage. Is there any truth in my assumption?
The same goes for 1680x1050 panels found in some 20/22” TVs; it’s also a PC resolution. Both are 16/10 whereas the panel in this Sony (1368x768) is 16/9.

I realise that there are other factors to consider but when you’re buying blind it’s akin to reading the bloomin’ tea leaves unless you can read reviews from respected sources.

This seems like a very good price for a Sony, I've just ordered one, Thanks :-D
#7
Also DELL seem to have the same sets on offer at slightly higher prices. Worth checking if you thinking about this model.

Bought one of these from digital direct a couple of months back for £285. Excellent well made tv with very good picture and sound quality.

this will be a great pc monitor.

I’m not so sure; the resolution is low for a 20” monitor.

@ Agharta: 1440x900 and 1680x1050 are normally PC monitor resolutions. But those tvs with these native resolutions will have circuitry inside to stretch and process the image to fit your screen. This might result in blurring if the source coming in is low quality or doesn't match the resolution of the screen. At least that is my understanding of it. I already have a Sharp 20AD5E 16:9 20" television for the 360/PS3 and PC, and although it works ok for Blurays/HDDVDs and 720p content, I'm disappointed with the bad contrast rate in terms of getting neutral colours with decent blacks. I'm not sure if this Sony is based on the same panel or might have better circuitry for more realistic blacks (within the lcd panels limitations) but it's something to consider. The black on my VP930 19" was better and my 21" Dell CRT had better playback of fast motion scenes.

Edit: wanted to add that I have got to a compromise with the colours and blacks, but it isn't as good as my CRT, but ok, and that I probably notice the problems with showing juddery objects in fast moving, high contrast scenes because I sit less than 2 foot away from the tv as I use it as a PC monitor primarily and not as a tv. So if you were sitting further away you probably wouldn't notice at all or as much, so the tv might be suitable after all.

Modern graphics cards typically support 1366x768 as standard so that shouldn’t be an issue. My ATI has this resolution as an option and even it didn’t you can typically create custom resolutions.

If you read down you will see I also said I use it with my PC. I used to run a 9800 Pro and now a 7600GT using that resolution. But yes what you said is correct. I've updated my original post btw a couple of minutes back.

well happy with my black one, cost around £265 two months ago after quidco and sound and vision in bolton, can't believe they still ask £400 for it!!
#17
They had white versions of these in Costco for £189 the other week - I think they were customer returns, but looked spotless - never thought of putting it on here :oops:

I just bought the last Mauve one from Kikatek for just under £218 delivered. The price is currently showing as £199.23 but they won’t let you pre-order items not in stock – Kikatek.

I noticed that Kikatek were selling one on Amazon Marketplace for a bit less than Amazon so I figured that they could sell it cheaper directly from their website as they wouldn’t be paying Amazon their cut. :)

Now £280.
