Summary: This monitor was purchased to replace a seven year old model. But I was floored by the clarity and brightness of the images on the screen. I have been completely satisfied with EVERYTHING about this monitor.
Summary: I chose this monitor for 3 reasons: (1) it was highly rated by Consumer Rpts, (2) it has self-contained speakers, and (3) it's bigger than my old one. Pro: Easy to install, nice resolution, attractive, speakers adequate for this non-gamer/non-musical senior lady. Con: I knocked off one star for the weird placement of the controls. They are in an obscure location under the bottom front of the unit.
Summary: I bought a Gateway HX2000 @2 months ago now, I have been very pleased, not one problem. I feel I got exactly what I paid for and would not hesitate to purchase again. Screen is very clear, ease of use, love the location of buttons.
