Summary: As someone pointed out, the lower portion of the screen is lighter than the upper portion. You can see it really well with open Word document. Very troubling, to say the least. This is about the crappiest screen I have ever come across. I fiddled with the controls for about 15 minutes to no avail. Had to return the "like new" item at my cost of 30 bucks. Not thrilled. Big pass on this one. Stay away. Go to brick and mortar so you can see what you're getting.
Summary: When I first got it, I had to play around with all the settings just to get it to display the colors right. Upon first plugging it in, It was just a faded monitor that madee everything look like you were trying to view it thorugh foggy glasses.
Summary: Nice monitor for the price($121). The screen isn't shiny at all like my second one(I've got dual screens). It's also brighter and shows the colors better. Only bad thing is it doesn't have an HDMI input, so I'll have to buy another DVI cable when I upgrade to a better graphics card that has no VGA. This monitor came with both VGA and DVI cables.
Summary: pros: looks good, decent resolution, no muss, no fuss, really not much to complain about. cons: I said 'Not Much' to complain about. It seems that when looking head on, the top of the screen is fine, while the bottom is much brighter, also, a bit much on the light for darker games, eg: Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth... to sum up, good deal for the bargain minded. There are better, but there are also much worse.
Summary: The colors are good and clear on this monitor is, but the viewing angle leaves something to be desired. You almost have to be looking directly at it, or the colors start to look washed out a little. I really like the fact that it has a button to select between dvi and vga inputs, allowing me to hook my laptop to it a switch back and forth between it and my desktop. Never seen that feature in a monitor before.
