Great Monitor, Great Price! Especially for Macbook users!
8 February 2010
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. I currently use a professionally calibrated color profile (easy to find free online) and the colors are rich, the blacks are really black and the screen is super bright.
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. Staff member is very satisfied, so am I !!! Would not hesitate to purchase another from this vendor. A+!!!
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. For the minor difference in price, this was a much better deal at $199. And I have not regretted my decision.
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. Then again if you shop around and do some research you can find a good cheap monitor. I think that is the case for this one.
Summary: This monitor was rated as one of the better monitors for gaming by cnet, even though it was hundreds less then other top rated monitors. Works for us, excellent value, nice for gaming and general graphics work.
