Summary: I ordered this monitor at Amazon and have been using it for two weeks now. I like it a lot. The color on mine is very good, no dead pixels and the image is very sharp. In the menu - not the best menu I've seen - there are a couple of presets you can quickly switch between (movie, text, user, graphics, standard) but I just keep it at one setting. The built in speakers are a handy extra and they are nicely hidden out of sight, don't expect great sound quality though.
Summary: First the pros. There is a WEALTH of information from other reviewers on what a superb this monitor is, so I'll very quickly touch on what I love about this monitor. Pros ---- >> This monitor is BRIGHT when the brightness is turned all the way up. The image quality is excellent on the native resolution of 1680 x 1050. Both text and images are sharp and the color rendering is good.
Summary: Great product, everything I wanted it to be for a great price. The only thing that Bugs me is that it automatically does the resolution sometimes and it doesn't always get it right, but its no big deal.
Summary: My Dell lcd screen turned Orange in less than 2 years- warranty was a joke unless you can do without for @ 6 months! adjusted the colors manually but dark and going Fast! Shopped around- first bought 20" HP at Best Buy BUT Stopped at Staples on the way home and they had this monitor for $199.98 (Circuit City/Best Buy-$319)!! Staples said they had to make room for new Dells coming in- BAD Mistake for them!
