Sony PVM-2054QM Monitor

Hey guys,

I've just received an offer to buy a fully functional prime condition Sony PVM-2054QM for about 250$.
Being a one-man company, this offer seems like a good deal.
The problem is : the guy selling it doesn't have the manual anymore.

Question : is this monitor worth buying at this price (main use will be color correction), and if so, does anyone have a manual for it in PDF format?

Thanks!

Peter Somers

you are buying an antique. I don't even know the exact model 2054QM. When Sony first released the PVM series, the model was Sony PVM 1954Q, not 20. This was in the late 80's or early 90's. Then came the PVM 20M2U or PVM20M4U. This was replaced by the PVM 20L5/1. And all of this was A LONG TIME AGO. You can go to any discount store (like best buy) and get a better quality montior, than some old broadcast CRT that is 20 years old, whose CRT is dying, and one that cannot be calibrated.

Everyone loves the "but it cost be $3000 back in the day" - well that day was 1989, not 2009. STOP IT. Save your money. Everyone is using LCD and plasma displays today. Want a CRT - go to WalMart or Best Buy, and get a new "remainder" model, that will look ultimately much sharper than someone's 20 year old CRT. This ain't no bargain you are getting - just becuase it has BNC connectors on the back, and is "broadcast quality".

Bob Zelin may I say that I use my PVM-2054QM daily for playing retro gaming systems. When it comes to CRT these things out do any consumer models around. I do agree this is a niche taste, but I am shocked by your immediate disregard for these monitors. There is a warm glow to an RGB CRT image that doesn't compare to flat screen reproduction.
