Anybody using the Sony PVM 740 Oled monitor on a sled? What are the mounting options? Brightness, Picture quality, AR coating?

Viewing angle is fine (170 degrees in both directions) but the weight? Holy Zeuses butthole is 5lbs 12 ounces meaning it's almost 2lbs heavier than a TB-6....

I have been using one for about 6 months on my rig. It is heavy and if you are in full sun it can be tricky to see at times. I took the plex cover off and it improved visibility a lot.
With that said I am looking to bite the bullet and get the new cinetronic. Plan to keep the Sony as a back-up.

We now also own the 17 inch. I like it. ( not for the steadicam though :-)

And i am not really into buttholes, but its good to know eric knows his stuff hehehe
