Do You Want a 16:9 LCD Monitor Now?

Spatial Uniformity

The Sony SDM-P234 had the best uniformity of all the monitors tested in this article, hands down. No halos of light were visible on our test model, and the upper/lower symmetry was remarkable.

Finally A Fast Sony Monitor!

It's about time! We'd almost stopped hoping for a Sony worthy of the name, but here it is! True, the SDM-P234 isn't that much better than the VP231WB, but it performed so much better than all the Sony monitors we've tested until now that you can understand our enthusiasm.

A 130 ms latency is a thing of the past. The SDM-P234 logged an average latency of 18 ms, with a peak at 23 ms. It was the fastest 16:9 monitor we tested for this article. It's a pleasure to see that Sony can make a monitor like this if they put their minds to it. It's true that it's not easy to do, but the technology for reaching this kind of performance exists. And this one is even as affordable as some competitors. We're betting that Sony has finally decided to take the lead in this slightly less exclusive category of monitors.
