Excerpt: My husband and I both recently got new home computer monitors. Up until then I had an old dinosaur. You know, the big white one that was too heavy to move and took up all of my desk space. We both got the Gateway 17 inch monitors through Best …
Summary: ...and that's about it. First of all, I received a 15 inch monitor (this is NOT a 17"), they didn't send me return info - nightmare. I've had to keep it; it displays pixels and not very well at that. It's clunky and annoying, expensive and low quality.
Summary: It's amazing how many one star reviews there are here ... seriously, don't these guys know any 10 year olds who can set up a monitor? I bought this of CL for $40 - it works with Windows 7 and an XBox 360 using a three dollar HDMI to DVI cable.
Summary: What's with all of the negative reviews here? Just because people are unfamiliar with their computer settings and don't know how to adjust resolution and monitor settings does not mean they can blame it on the monitor. This is a great monitor with a crisp display and excellent color.
Summary: I purchased this monitor in January '09, and it is now very fuzzy (it's been 8 months) and Gateway said it is not under warranty. I basically have to pay to get it repaired or toss it and get something else.
Summary: the wide screen distored the images.. I did not like it at all, had to send it back. I was charged a restocking fee, plus $20. shipping to return it.. I am out $50. and still no Monitor.. What a jip.
Great value for the price; a welcome CRT replacement

Summary: I was on the hunt for an inexpensive desktop monitor, and I happened upon the Open Box buys at Best Buy. This monitor was in the display for $119.99, a GREAT price. I will be using it for a variety of purposes, but I hooked it up to my MacBook Pro as a secondary monitor just to try it out and see...
Summary: All You need to do is be sure your computor resolution is set for widescreen and your squares will look like squares. Awsome monitor, got mine in a package deal and dumped my perfectly working (ok recycled at the recycling plant) my old 17" flat screen standard monitor.
Summary: I like my squares to display as squares, and on this widescreen monitor I get rectangles. There does not appear to be a way to revert to normal screen width, so on a desktop you have to turn your head back and forth to read the stretched out screen. NOT good for office work.
