good used monitor - perfect match for the one i have
9 March 2012
Summary: i had one of these; it was a good monitor 20" with a lot of pixels for the money, wanted another for dual screens, not that old, but no longer available new, so I bought two for about what the original cost new.
Summary: I bought this in late 2007 and it worked fine until today (4-29-11). The power light flashes amber then green and the screen remains black. I have a dual-monitor system and switched the other one and it worked fine on the same video card plug as the bad one, thus determining that the monitor itself...
Summary: I've owned this monitor for 3 years and this morning it quit on me. It now just flashes on and off and nothing I do can reset it. 3 years is a long time but there's no reason a monitor shouldn't last at least 5. I'm disappointed in it's stamina for sure.
Monitor smelled like burned plastic and stopped working

Summary: This monitor was great ... while it worked. After about 14 months, I walked in my office and smelled a very strange smell that was like an electronic-overheated-type smell. Turns out it was coming from this monitor.
Summary: This is one lousy monitor. First off the VGA connection doesn't work with my Mac Mini. The DVI connection does, the problem with having the DVI connection is that the monitor blacks out and then comes right back.
Summary: I was looking for a modest sized 1680 x 1050 wide screen format LCD monitor to use as a second screen with my 17" Apple MacBook Pro laptop. It works a treat, doubling my desktop estate, has a DVI connector, and the silver frame matches my MacBook. The colours are sharp and bright too.
Summary: I bought two of these monitors - one for my wife and the other for me. These are fabulous monitors with a very clear display, fast enough to show videos well, and wide so that more can be displayed. If you're looking for great product at a great price, this is it.
