I bought mine used for $20 and I love it

Gusergoo, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought mine used for $20 so I was very pleased with the nice large picture and the fact that it can be used as a tv also. My screen has gone blank a few times. I just unplug the power from under it and put it right back in. Works great and not all that inconvenient, so if you have this problem, hopefully this info will help. I love mine.

  • Pros: Works with all PC window XP, Vista and windows 7. Monitor has nothing to do with operating system. If it does not work for you on another PC then i would look at your video card, most likely its the culprit.

Gateway FPD2185W

javier333, Ebay

  • Summary: This monitor is quite nice, not super high resolution but more than adequate for any task. It's basically a 1600x1200 monitor with the bottom 200 pixels cut off to make it widescreen. The actual resolution is 1680x1050. I'm a programmer and the screen rotation helps when viewing long chunks of code. I still haven't gotten the monitor to work at it's native resolution on my laptop. It's a driver issue, but it's something to check into before getting this monitor.
