Decent LCD ruined by horrible interface

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Summary: You can find a better monitor for a similar price these days. Look elsewhere.
  • Pros: -Good prize for the size -Image on screen is pretty clear and looks good
  • Cons: -Touchscreen controls are horrendous. Often they freeze up. This is a pain if you switch inputs often like I do. It requires you to unplug your monitor. My touchscreen's completely given out now so I don't have access to my monitor's settings or input switching options anymore. -Viewing angle is ...

Its a pass, regardless of price

  • Summary: Finish shows too many fingerprints and the silver is annoying to look at when watching movies, plain black finish is popular for a reason.
  • Pros: Many inputs, picture in picture (although its very limited on what you can do, its got more limitations than options for pip, CAREFUL what you have planned for it. The small window can only support a few of the analog inputs forget using HDMI or DVI on the pip window)
  • Cons: Horrific warranty period and Gateway customer service is rated the lowest in the industry. They DO NOT stand behind what they sell.

Nothing special

Jeremiah O., Newegg

  • Summary: I paid over twice as much about a year or so ago and it was one of the cheapest around. I ended up selling it to a friend because the bleed thru got worse over time and became noticeable even when the screen wasn't dark. Very annoying. My friend didn't care cause it was a huge step up from his 19".
  • Pros: It's a nice looking monitor with ok color. USB ports were helpful. Has lots of bells and whistles.
  • Cons: Mine had excessive bleed thru and the touch sensitive controls were very frustrating. Also the base acted like it was on a swivel when sitting on a flat surface. Seemed like the weight wasn't distributed evenly. The screen also loves to reflect light. I think it only comes with a 1 year warranty ...
