Top-dollar build quality in its original era make it a relevent monitor today. No HDMI.

Summary: I bought my first one circa 2002 for about $900. I bought two more over time (new, from Dell). It's 2015, now, and I still have all monitors on my main computer. One of them developed a fault, whereby sleep mode turns off the backlight (as it should) but exiting sleep mode doesn't always turn it...
Excellent monitor, timeless design, will not replace it until it's gone!

Summary: I'm a computer programmer and this monitor has been serving me well for 10 years now. I've recently bought another one from ebay for a dual monitor setup and it's really a double-pleasure now :) I don't condemn the current widescreen craze, but do not understand why it is being enforced so much.
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...
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!
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.
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.
