Sony E400 19inch Monitor Review

Sony E400 19inch Monitor Review - PCSTATS
Abstract: Worried that your Frag-rate in QIII is slipping? Might be time to upgrade that old 15" or 17" monitor to a bigger one. Sony makes some amazing stuff, but are their monitors really that good?

Sony E400 Monitor Review

I'm going to be honest with you; I'd rather be doing a review on the 21-inch Sony F500. - Instead, I'm reviewing a much more economical monitor. Many of you out there cannot afford to buy a Sony F500 (myself included), so this review serves to please the masses a bit more than a review on the F500, would.

There were so many excellent 19-inch monitors to choose from, but I ultimately decided on purchasing the 19-inch Sony E400. Sony's "E" Series are for SOHO (small office - home office) applications, but don't let the "E" designation dissuade you. Here are the important specifications and features of this monitor as well as a brief description of my test machine:
