The Sony CLM v55 5 inch monitor doesn’t have quit as many features as the Smallhd dp4¬†and the color reproduction isn’t as good, but for the right price the Sony CLM v55 is a good buy. In the summer I don’t bother taking the dp4 with me due to over heating issues I’ve had, and the built in sun hood on the Sony v55 is much better then that velcro mess on the dp4.

Normally the Sony CLM v55 will set you back around $345, but right now on ebay there is an “open box” Sony CLM v55 monitor with a buy it now price of $220 + $6.99 shipping. If you’re in the market for a monitor this could save at least a $100 and it’s a little less then half the price of the Smallhd DP4.
