Summary: What a difference to my computing interface this monitor has made! The color spectrum is like going from a old tv to a new HD! I'm less tired and less stressed because I don't have to strain to concentrate on the screen.
Summary: Bought this, brand new from BestBuy almost 2 years ago. First off, my room is small. In a livingroom, no less than Samsung for size+resolution. For my room, (or anyone at a desk-think distance X resolution-This thing is/was WELL worth the $650+ I paid. nothings perfect. low view angle means greys as mentioned. HDMI, DVI, Component, Composite, S-Video, VGA...optional speaker bar.
Summary: Well I could not pass on this deal even after reading some of the negative reviews. Also I decided to buy an ext. warranty just in case. I wish that they kept the original specs as far as the USB port goes, it would have definitely been convenient. I could not see myself paying more or the same for an item which is the previous model. I am not using it at its full potential due to the fact that my Mobo is getting to be on the old side and has only VGA out.
Conclusion: The 2400 model has more inputs, the new one has only basic three. But for me this one is ok. I like the screen itself. It goes perfect with my PC. I also like it for its size and I am very happy with it.
Summary: I've owned a 24" Gateway monitor for over a year now. It has worked well but there are problems that make me want to stay away from Gateway in the future. First of all the monitor has a glossy face, it is very reflective and a pain. When you turned on the monitor, it plays a little tune which eventually becomes obnoxious. The final problem is that every time I turn it and my computer on, a box comes up asking me what language I want to work in. EVERY SINGLE TIME!
Summary: For a monitor that cost little it's very good. It does have some minor problems such as the grays and pixal drift. It also has some viewing angle probelms where colors are SLIGHTLY distorted. I use this monitor for photo editing so I'm more picky than most people. For me these probelms do not effecit my ability to edit photos. In the next couple of years I'll probably get an apple monitor and then after that a Eizo. But this is a good starting point IMHO.
