Summary: When I bought this I didn't want to pay too much money for a new monitor. I had one of those huge old ones which gave me very little desk space - even though it worked fine it was just too big. This was a good deal for the money - vivid colors - clear pics.
Summary: A nice, bright screen. Everything is a lot clearer than with my old monitor. It's wide, but not as high as I had expected. So, just be sure to check the specs before you purchase. Seems a good shape for watching movies (but smaller than you might want for that?
