Summary: Display looks really great for a five year old monitor. Design still holds up too. I currently have two of these attached to my computer to help me with my work (I do 3D modeling and animation).
Summary: I bought this monitor a few years ago with a Gateway computer. Other than two dead pixels, the monitor display looks great, and I haven't had any problems since buying it. The dual DVI-D and VGA input is also a plus, and the monitor frame design holds up (aesthetically) even today. Am considering buying another one (for extended desktop display) but am waiting for the price to drop down a little.
Summary: Don't buy any Gateway monitor. They look good to start and get great reviews. But it will go out and Gateway will not stand behind it nor help you resolve the situation. Their monitors are known for dying within two years. I'm still searching for a better monitor. Mine just went out.
Summary: love the digital vidio my 1st and cant belive the diferance it makes i am using nvidia 7300GS and cant belive the diferance and my old monitor was gateway pfd1730 was a gr8 buy and i'm happy to have it.
