Pretty good monitor.

legozander, Ebay
11 April 2013
  • Summary: If you're just looking for a decent HD monitor for business or home use, then look no further. The monitor itself has only a few customizable features, such as brightness and contrast. The only way to change the amount of red, green, and blue that shows up in the picture is to use the five or six Gateway defined presets. The Monitor does have a little too much white light for my liking, but this is barely noticible in a regularly lit room.

Refresh rate a little slow but well worth the money!!

  • Summary: Not at all a bad monitor for the price. A little slow on the refresh rate, and I had to restart my computer (safe mode) because I had set the pixel settings at too high a frequency. It took a little time to find the right setting to get the best picture with this monitor. However I have to say for the money it was a GREAT BUY!!!

"PIcture in Picture (PIP) feature doesn't exist"

gurnx, CNET
10 December 2010
  • Pros: Purchased December 2009 for $100. After a year's use it's delivered good value. Works well with the Ergotron Neo-Flex tilt/swivel stand.
  • Cons: Recently had to use the 'Picture in Picture' feature only to find out that the monitor doesn't support this feature. Otherwise I've been pleased with it's service.

Replacement Monitor 22" LCD

A. R. Keith, Amazon
28 February 2010
  • 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.

Monitor

  • Summary: The monitor works fine, but has some pixels that show blue all the time. It is really only noticible when a totally black screen is showing. Worth the money though.

Great Monitor, Stand Weak

Douglas Honeycutt, Amazon
5 May 2009
  • Summary: This is a great monitor, the only thing is it has a very weak stand. The monitor will move around from side to side and front to back some.

Good multi-purpose LCD monitor.

Old Gamer, J&R
14 January 2009
  • Summary: I use this monitor mainly with a PC via a DVI cable (not included). I was able to playback HDCP video from my DirecTV HD DVR. Picture quality is nice with good contrast and colors. No dead pixels were found. The screen is glossy and not flat like most LCD monitors. It is really bright and I adjusted it lower so it would not burn in my eyes. PC games looked great in widescreen mode (Farcry 2).
  • Pros: HDCP via DVI, HDMI port
  • Cons: Bad lower viewing angle, DVI cable not included

Verg good monitor for the money with 720p resolution!

John Smith, Amazon
11 October 2008
  • 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. refer to the link and other sites for feedback because the representative at Gateway told me this and the HD2200 use the same exact panel (apparently the 2000:1 contrast ratio to the hd200's 1000:1 is a gimmick,...
