Over the weekend, it went colour-blind. It stopped displaying red. It’s also much dimmer, presumably because the monitor mixes colours (including red) to produce white. Oddly, when I turn the display on when it’s unconnected to a computer, the ‘text pattern’ displays red correctly. This leads me to believe something’s wrong with the video-in connection.
Regardless, it’s jacked. Though I was very happy with display’s quality, I’m disappointed by its short shelf life. I use it a lot, but 18 months is fairly bogus. I’m not looking forward to the long drive (for me, at least) out to to 65 North Bend Road to the local Sony Service Centre. It’s under warranty, so hopefully they’ll give me a ‘courtesy’ monitor in the meantime.
UPDATE: Though I had to drive the thing out to frickin’ Coquitlam, the Sony people treated me well and my monitor’s back to full speed ahead.
