Summary: I only wrote this review since I was curious about how long ago I did buy it and Newegg had the order history. I would consider another Hanns-G if one showed up during my current research for a replacement
Pros: this monitor performed just fine, purchased Nov. 2009, monitor was manufactured Sept 2009 so it was plenty "fresh"
Cons: monitor suddenly stopped working Feb. 2016 just over 6 years, it went "white-screen" and that was that, I did test it on another computer, different cables, video, etc.
Pros: I think I wrote a review for this in 2012. I will reiterate what I said then... this has been a solid monitor. I bought it because I needed some BLING for a LAN party and couldn't afford to rebuild my computer at the time. I've had this since 2009 with NO problems.
Summary: I had this monitor for 4 years and 11 months. For the price, it was definitely a great value. Unfortunately, it has now died. When turning the monitor on, it will display the screen for a split second then turn black. The LED still indicates the screen is on.
Summary: I was looking over some old purchases and realized I rated this 1 star in 2009 because the 1st one I got broke within 1-2 weeks. The replacement model is just over 4 years old now, and still working perfectly!
Pros: Working for 4 years & counting.
Cons: Built-in Speakers are terrible! It's "only" 1080p.
Summary: I would recommend based on price at the time i bought this in 2009. Now i would go for a television as a monitor, but it still works great.
Pros: + Pretty good colors for the price. + Decent stand, sturdy monitor. + I could plug my xbox into the monitor.
Cons: - You will have bleeding that is noticable during dark scenes. I would consider a little above minor, but nothing that is terribly distracting. - More plugins would have been nice, but again its a bargain.
Pros: Huge. Better than HD resolution: 1920x1200. Some people do more than watch movies on their monitors! The extra pixels is great. When this monitor dies (going strong for 3+ years) I'll probably have to downgrade to 1920x1080. Bummer! I love this mega-monitor
Summary: Almost 4 years and it looks just as good as when I got it out of the box. I have 2 young kids too who always put their hands on it. Cleans up great with a slightly damp majic eraser!
Pros: I bought this back in 2009 for $300. Still working great! Adjust colors a bit and your good to go. It is bright and fast! I recently bought a BenQ high end gaming monitor to replace because I thought it would blow this one away. I was so wrong! BenQ has nothing on this monitor.
