Sony CPDG520 Monitor Review - The Monitor

We've all heard of it and likely drooled over the idea of having one for ourselves as well. What is this you ask? Come join Aaron "FragMan" Clegg as he takes a look at the Sony CPDG520 Monitor. With 21 inches of real estate, it manages to give enough room for even the greediest among us. But can it live up to the hype that has been circulating lately? Let's find out!

The Monitor

 

Being a 21" CRT, the G520 is no slouch in the size department. With a depth of pretty close to 50cm and weighing in at over 30 kilograms, you are going to need a fairly large and sturdy desk to sit this baby on. Despite its dimensions, the rear of the unit around the cathode ray gun was somewhat less bulky than I expected of a monitor of this size.

 

 

The monitor is finished in a two tone gray scheme that will look good on anyone's desk. The front is a lighter gray while the back is the darker blue gray. On the right hand side of the unit there is the four-port USB hub that now comes standard on Sony monitors.

 

 

Looking at the rear we can see the dual inputs, both for standard HD15 and the high-end BNC connectors. Most of us will never use the BNC connectors as they are usually reserved for expensive workstation level graphics cards.
