Summary: This 3-year lifespan is complete nonsense. Bought in 2009 because it was cheap; will not buy this brand again. For comparison purposes, the Sceptre flatscreen I bought in 2008 is still going strong with no problems whatsoever.
Pros: This monitor was cheap and great for a college student who alternated between gaming, graphic design, web design, and needing to be able to pull up 2 word docs side by side.
Cons: But... like many other users, now, about 2.5-3 years down the road, it's having the power issues where it will take some time to warm up or it will flash on and off for a while when it's powered on. Tonight, I powered it on and was greeted by a lovely solid blue line near the right edge of the sc...
Summary: I bought this monitor in Sept 2008 and it lasted about 2 years and 3 months before it needed RMA for a bad LCD screen repair. While the warranty process went smoothly it only lasted until June 2012 and now is displaying a power issue (needs to heat up for 10 min before it powers on).
Summary: of $230-275(+ shipping, they don't cover shipping). After I got out a good laugh I told the tech I would be giving a bad review. Bottom line, I paid $300 for this 2 1/2 years ago, why would I pay more (shipping around 80) to get the same product back that will most likely have the same problem down...
Pros: First monitor that I've experienced that high resolution for gaming. Was great while it lasted.
Cons: For starters, like some other reviews I've read, the top part of the screen (about 2 inches) is blackened from a lower viewing angle. That being said, on a 28" screen, this is pretty ignorable and it didn't really impede my gaming, just sort of a fault with the product. So I would deduct an egg f...
Summary: We have had a monitor like this for close to 3 years and it hasn't worked correctly for the last year. The screen will get all spotty and do odd things then it will go blank and I can't get to come back on. We couldn't find the warrenty papers so my brother in law took it apart to try and fix it.
Summary: I bought my HG281D in Feb 08. While it worked I was happy with it. However it died after 3.5 years - just 6 months after the warranty expired. I contacted HannsG service: they advised me to take it to a local repair shop.
Summary: It was cheap, around $330.00 at time of purchase. You get what you pay for.
Pros: The screen size is fantastic. The brightness is extremely helpful while performing routine business file tasks. Resolution size is rarely available on any lcd monitor these days. It equates more real estate space to view multiple files without having to buy a second monitor.
Cons: HEAVY BLEEDING AROUND THE EDGES WITHIN THE FIRST THREE MONTHS. Cannot watch movies with so much bleeding. UNIT DIED AFTER 1 YEAR AND 9 MONTHS. Cheaply made.
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.
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.
Pros: Great monitor for playing Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2
Cons: I have this monitor for less than a month and i good white screen of dead. Nothing is appearing on the screen and now i have to send it back which would cost me money and they don't do refunds on this item....
