Summary: This monitor was to be used as a monitor for a Mac Book Pro. The first monitor shipped did not work at all in any mode. The second monitor shipped had a vertical red line on the screen. No further monitors were shipped. I got a Samsung instead that works just great.
Run, don't walk from this company Hanns G products

Summary: This monitor worked great until it quit working after 13 months because of the "white screen" of death issue commented on by others. Called Hann G service, several times over several days, because I found something out. No matter what problem you say this monitor has besides "It won't turn on" the tech diagnoses the LCD panel is broken. Which means, that warranty is vapor. The LCD is warranted ONE year, other parts and service for 3 years. That's the catch..
Summary: I bought this monitor from a competitor of Amazon and it developed a vertical line after about a week. It was intermittent and I thought it must be my cable or graphics card. I tried several fixes. The one vertical line became three. I could not return it where i purchased it for a refund because all of this took over 30 days of on again off again attempts to fix it after talking with HANNS G several times.
Summary: I bought one of these monitors off Amazon about a year ago and it has worked fine. I love the larger pixel pitch for my old eyes. I bought a second unit a couple months ago for use at work, and within one month it stopped working (white screen of death). Evidently this is a fairly common fault with this monitor. Since Hanns G has no local service depot, I had to mail it back to them in Southern California for repair.
Summary: Hello Everyone! I recently purchased this monitor (15 of october 2009, give or take a week) and i haven't had any problems with it, the only drawback (or feature if you wanna see it that way) is that its bright, at its "normal" setting the monitor is very bright, so its best to lower it at the lowest possible brightness so it wont hurt your eyes.
Summary: Love these monitors from Amazon ... the Hanns-G 28 inch is great, have 6 of these now, two rotated 90 degrees for emails and chat windows, and the rest normal. I run 4 monitor set ups in 1920x1200 with 2 rotated for emails and chats. Do not have to wear my glasses surrounded with these, created horseshoe configuration and nothing further than 18 inches from face.
Summary: I have no idea why this monitor is priced so low. I purchased it about two weeks ago, I waited to be sure it didn't have some immediate issues. It has worked perfectly. Like any monitor, you just plug it in and it works! There are two ways to hook it up, HDMI and VGA. No fears, VGA works great (ad there is a DVI adapter if desired). I have it hooked up so I can watch HDTV through the HDMI port and my computer is hooked up via VGA.
Summary: The color is great, it was simple to set up. The only somewhat difficult thing is figuring out those buttons on the back side. I have both the HannsG 28" and the ViewSonic 28" side-by-side. No reason to spend the extra money that I can tell. One thing I like about the Hanns over the ViewSonic is that the Hanns is lower on the desk.
Summary: My husband & I both had ViewSonic 28inch monitors, mine has been replaced by ViewSonic, and his went out, but past the first year warranty where they would cover shipping and handling. We decided that by the time we sent it back and to have it returned to us we could purchase a new monitor. This one arrived quickly, was easy to set up and works perfectly so far. My husband is very happy with this monitor.
Summary: I love this monitor, mainly because of its size and affordable price. I've had it for 2 months now, use it every day, and love it! I connect a Dell laptop or my MacBook Pro to it just fine. I am a programmer (lots of code/text) and a trader (lots of charts and colored text) so it's great for what I need it for. I don't know if it's good enough for photographers who need exacting colors but I don't care, it's great for me.
