good used monitor - perfect match for the one i have

lchien, Ebay

  • 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. Seems like there's a lot of parts available to repair these - don't know if that means they fail often - hope not.

3 1/2 years then it died.

Danax, Amazon

  • 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 is indeed the problem. Interesting that it came with a 3 year warranty and here we are 3 1/2 years later. Planned obselescence?

Good for the price

Jordan A. Bourne, Amazon
10 August 2009
  • 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. As to it's funtion, works great out of the box. Decent image, it's only a 1680X1050 res so it's not the clearest picture. I haven't had any problems with this until now. 8ms response time is great.

Monitor smelled like burned plastic and stopped working

Dennis X. Legault, Amazon
23 April 2009
  • 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. After unplugging it and letting the smell dissipate, when I turn it on, all I get is a white screen.

I love the thing -- 4 1/2 Stars

catPerson93, Amazon

  • Summary: Just to put my review into perspective...I'm not an uber-monitor junkie like my husband. I basically want something crisp and detailed that is a no-brainer to set-up and calibrate. Matter of fact, calibrate shouldn't even be in the converstation. This monitor is great for simple every day functions like viewing text documents, powerpoint type files, internet sites, digital pics, etc.

I'll never go back to a small screen, or anything but a flat screen.

June Cheatwood, Amazon
9 March 2007
  • Summary: Wonderful clarity, just a beautiful, beautiful view of words or images, love it! Great price too. It's so clear and sharp it rivals a Mac screen. But I declare, a 20 inch is almost too big! It seems like my eyeballs have to travel almost too far side to side, to my surprise. A 17 inch would have been fine but I had no idea how big a 20 inch would be until I got it! Lightweight and easy to move to dust under--yet heavy enough to be steady and solid--and tilts easily too.

Excellent

Gregory B. Young "Quartrz", Amazon

  • Summary: There's plenty of viewing with this monitor. At first I didn't like the wide screen viewing angle, but I got used to it and now can't live without it. It's also a good buy for the price. Buy it!!!

Great Product

F. Seegers, Amazon
4 January 2007
  • Summary: I have had this monitor for 3 months now. Clear picture, nice colors. The size allows you to open multiple windows. Perfect for surfing, playing games and work with graphics. I would have given this product 5 stars, but unfortunately I received it with one dead pixel, but for this price it did not bother me at all. The best money I have ever spend on a monitor!

you get what you pay for....

intelligentfool, Amazon

  • Summary: This is a pretty decent monitor, but after using it for 2 weeks, i'm returning it. The main reason is after rebooting linux (which is rare) i got the startup screen and noticed about 8 bad pixels. The other thing is, I didnt realize that this monitor doesnt have DVI output until I opened it up, which is why this monitor goes for $100 less than comparable monitors.
