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!!!
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.
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!

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,...
