I actually like the look. It tells you that it's built like a tank and it's not some toy that has to look all pretty to have a high WAF or GAF. I'm a Film and Media Arts student at my college, so I work with Professional Broadcast Monitors all the time.
I actually like the way they look. It's a no compromise tube that doesn't compromise on weight, size, looks, etc, and its only goal is to have the best image quality possible given the design specs. It's the kind of tube that was used on big budget Hollywood flicks during production as well as post production.
The 24" SGI monitors are good for post production, but sometimes you just need something a little bigger and this is perfect for that role.
It's a real shame that Sony like everyone else dumped the high end tube market.
I'd have loved to see consumer grade CRT HDTVs with Sony's "HR Trinitor" logo.
Only tubes with 2 MILLION plus pixels get that logo.
