Works great!

Charles J., Newegg
20 January 2016
  • Summary: Bought this monitor used from a former (now closed) employer in 2010. Other than sitting in storage for a year, this monitor gets hours of use per day along with a widescreen monitor, and has worked flawlessly now for over 5 years.
  • Pros: 5+ years and still working great! No dead pixels
  • Cons: No angle or height adjustment.

Missing hanging screws.

Kent Jones, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought the monitor for the soul purpose of hanging it on a mounting bracket but it is missing the mounting screws. I have another monitor just like it (same brand and model) and it has the mounting screws. What a huge disappointment.

  • Summary: I bought this monitor so I could have dual monitor at home. It is a great monitor to use, it is bright and has a large viewing area. The controls for display are on the bottom right side.

  • Summary: I bought 2 of these to go with the one I already have. Works well for work but apparently i need a better video card to get it to be able to game on high settings. One thing i thought was weird was the fact that they got rid of the vesa mount.

  • Summary: Feel for the price i can go get something just as old thats used with a better image.
  • Pros: Bought this in 08 was cheap and it still works.
  • Cons: I don't know if it's fading or what but the colors stink compared to LCD is next to in multi monitor setup has kind of an ever so slight Grey tinge to everything. Seems like it's over saturated with something seems every ting is much lighter then it should actually be. I tried all the settings in...
