15 bucks for that, the cord alone costs more than that!

Nice find, where's that guy live anyway?

Hello mate.


It would probably need an in-built picture-in-picture setup to run more than one image, does it have that?

I'd imagine that's for switching between sources, like through the remote; but don't let me dissuade you, you'll never know if you never try. Do you have a remote and does it have a "PIP" button or something similar?
Look up the manual for it on-line.

Picture-in-picture is the reason (like you're wanting, TV and PC at the same time) I bought my 47" all the paperwork said it had it but when I got it home and contacted the builder I found out it had never been enabled when built.

Make sure you turn the screen saver functions on, the orbiting feature. Moves the picture a couple of pixels (use the largest setting). It's really not noticeable when it moves. Keep the brightness and contrast (picture) settings as low as you can without it being to dark for you. Plasmas burn in quite easily as they are incredibly bright. Without the filter glass at the front, you could land planes with one. Since it is a monitor, there will be no PIP on Sony's. Run the inverted picture function for a while every so often too. Nice monitor for a PC!

That's a professional monitor BTW, not a consumer model. I just looked it up on the Sony technical site (I'm a TV tech). No major issues with it as far as lots of bulletins and such. Tell truth, for $15, if it failed in a month you got a deal (not that there is any reason it should fail )A Guy
