"Sony is something of a troubled beast these days, what with root kits and
overpriced and over-delayed gaming consoles, but one can't deny that it
still knows something about design. These days a 19in 4:3 monitor has to
really offer something different to attract our attention and the SDM-E96D
certainly falls into that category, primarily due to its eye catching
design. What's more, at only £173 is sounds like a bargain. However, I soon
found myself questioning a design ethic that appears to have been based
entirely around Post-It notes. Let me explain."
