Summary: There are a few problems with this monitor. 1) It has a glossy screen. This is a bad screen if you want accurate colors and have any light source around. 2) The stand is VERY weak. The monitor will wobble around every time you bump the desk that it is on, which is all the time.
Summary: It does what is required & the cost was excellent. The supplier was quicker then advertised. It doesn't have the bells & whistles that the OEM supplied with the unit but fully does what is needed to facilitate my needs. I'm very satisfied, so far.
Great Monitor, Great Price! Especially for Macbook users!

Summary: When I purchased this monitor for $149, I wasn't expecting much, just a 22" monitor and hopeful of an "acceptable" viewing experience. This monitor is absolutely gorgeous. I currently have it connected to my Black Macbook (2008 model) and I am amazed at the quality of this screen.
Summary: Very limited budget but have a staff member that needed larger monitor for lower vision level (person is not blind, just needs larger monitor to do work, 18" monitor means taking longer to do a routine task). This was a PERFECT solution, an excellent product - could NOT tell it from new.
Summary: I bought this monitor because the display on my laptop died. I have connected it to my laptop now. I chose this monitor, because the reviews I found on it were very postive. It was one of the editor's picks on the forum I read. I was trying to choose between this and another smaller one.
Summary: This is a great monitor if you can get it under two hundred dollars and odds are soon enough you can shop around and find it. Keep in mind in the under two hundred dollar lcd monitors quality isn't the same so much as a three or four hundred dollar monitor if you go with the right brand.
Verg good monitor for the money with 720p resolution!

Summary: This monitor is 95% identical to the its predecessor, the HD2200 (http://www.amazon.com/Gateway-HD2200-Widescreen-LCD-Monitor/dp/B000XIDECU). If you want a detailed description of how this TN panel performs in color palettes, grayscale, backlight bleed etc.
