Summary: The monitor is required for programming. a 1080 resolution in the vertical direction just doesn't work. The seller, a first time ebayer was great, and the monitor is perfect. It is a sad day to see the 4:3 aspect ratio monitors disappear because of lazy monitor makers, who would rather capitalize on a easy supply of sub-standard HD screens, then to make a monitor that is useful. I have 4 of these and intend to acquire about 4 more.
Summary: I inherited a 2001FP from my parents in 2005 as they were tossing their broken 2003 vintage OptiPlex, and let me just say that I haven't needed to purchase another monitor since. In fact, I just bought another 2001FP a couple weeks ago. Like new for around $60. A steal! going on 11 years and the monitors are still in nearly perfect condition!
Although when I recieved it it was busted at the top like someone dropped it

Summary: Cheap for the price of the product... Although when I recieved it it was busted at the top like someone dropped it... Was also packaged very poorly.. Works but looks all dinged up... Does have picture in picture as well as various other hook up capabilities..
Summary: Bought two of these from a reseller of units pulled from service. No idea how old they are exactly, but they both work perfectly. Lots of inputs and options, but no HDMI (uses DVI). I bought mine from KNN3 Sales. Packaging and shipping was good and fast. Power supplies WERE included, but probably should ask before purchasing.
Summary: One of the better 4:3 monitors still left out there. 1600x1200 resolution, USB 2.0 hub built in, adjustable stand, external power brick are some of the options. Brightness not as bright as a newer LED monitor. Response rate not as fast as newer monitors, but that's to be expected as these are several years old.
Summary: This monitor was purchased used. I don't know how many hours/years it has accumulated, but there is nothing about it that seems inferior to a new unit. All features work, there is no visible defect. The stand is well designed and sturdy. All in all, just what I wanted. Low price, as-promised delivery time, great condition and performance...adds up to five stars from me. It's a great shame is that the 4:3 aspect ratio is all but obsolete.
