Summary: My old 17" was getting pink..decided to try 19" widescreen. Arrived today..set up easy..a beautiful monitor..Do not hestiate to buy one of these. It is bright and I don't see one missing pixel. A real value.
Summary: I bought this to replace a 19" CRT because I wanted more space on my desk and I thought the extra horizontal inches would make it easier to keep >1 window open at a time. I'm very happy with it, especially because it was cheap. It does have few controls but I haven't felt the need to make any adjustments. I have not plugged in the speakers. Currently I have it in a dual monitor configuration with a 17" SyncMaster 710N which was, I think, a mid-level monitor in its day.
