Summary: I got this monitor and was very excited. The color is very good and I had to get a new video card to make better use of it. However, this did not last. After only 5 months, the monitor started showing horizontal and vertical lines. Nothing I did would fix the probelm. Since it is after the 1 month, I have to contact AOC. I have sent them an e-mail, will see how it goes from there. At least my dell monitor lasted 2 years before I had problems. I'm Very disappointed.
