5 Reasons For

Only Released Seven Months Ago

As one of the newer PC screens, this LCD screen is likely to use more advanced technology.

Has a Built-In Speaker

The Sony LMD-1530W has a built-in speaker, unlike most of the other small monitors that were launched around the same time as the LMD-1530W which do not have a built-in speaker.

Chart Edit

Has One Cable Included

The Sony LMD-1530W has a greater number of cables included than most comparable spec LCD screens that are a similar age to it. The most frequently found cable included is VGA, but this cable included is not found on this PC screen. The cables included AC are also found on this Sony PC screen.

Chart Edit

1280 X 768 Graphics Resolution

The highest resolution of the LMD-1530W is 1280 x 768. That's over three times the resolution of a 720 x 400 PC screen, which is the most frequently found resolution. Across all PC monitors that were released in the last year the resolution ranges from 480 x 272 to 4096 x 2160.

Chart Edit

Narrow

The LMD-1530W is one of the narrower new comparable spec flatpanel monitors (only 372 millimeters) amongst small monitors of this age. The average width of recently released similar spec PC screens is 420mm, and the widths range from 140mm to 480mm.

PC monitors with a wider width that might be worth considering include the DELL P1917S (£129.00) (406.4mm), or the Neovo X-15P (£282.05) (380mm).

1 Other reason to consider the Sony LMD-1530W

LCD Display Type

The Sony LMD-1530W has an LCD display type which is better than most PC screens that have been on the market for a comparable time to it. Most similar spec LCD screens that have been on the market for a comparable time to it have an LED display type.
