I have a long-standing love of SmallHD monitors. I've owned just about every one of them, and they've all been workhorses in my kit. But I was as surprised as anyone when they announced the SmallHDR Production Monitors. And after seeing them at NAB, I can tell you they're the real deal.

They're super-bright, come loaded with all the monitor tools you need on-set or on-location, they're easy to move around, and their pretty much indestructible. You can power them with just about anything you can find, and the image is gorgeous. They're not cheap, but chances are you'll die before it does.
