5 Reasons For

Only Released Six Months Ago

As one of the newer PC monitors, this Sony flatpanel monitor is likely to use better technology.

Has a Built-In Speaker

Unlike most of the other comparable spec PC screens that came out around the same time as the LMD-1530W which do not have a built-in speaker, the LMD-1530W has a built-in speaker.

Chart Edit

Has One Cable Included

The LMD-1530W has a greater number of cables included than most similar spec PC displays that have been available for around the same time as it. The most commonly found cable included is VGA, but this cable included is not found on this flatpanel monitor. The cables included AC are also found on this LCD screen.

Chart Edit

1280 X 768 Graphics Resolution

The highest resolution of the Sony LMD-1530W is 1280 x 768. That's over three times the resolution of the most frequently found graphics resolution of 720 x 400. The best resolution of all comparable spec LCD screens that have been around for the last year is 4096 x 2160 and the worst is 480 x 272.

Chart Edit

Narrow

Small monitors that came out in the last year have widths of between 140mm and 480mm, and the average width is 420mm. With a width of only 372 millimeters, the LMD-1530W is fairly narrow compared to most of the other similar spec PC screens that were launched around the same time as the LMD-1530W.

Other flatpanel monitors with a wider width that you might want to look at include the DELL P1917S[plb_3437576_price] (406.4mm), the Neovo X-15P[plb_3364889_price] (380mm), or the Lenovo T1714p[plb_3239431_price] (374.5mm).
