Summary: I ordered a Compaq Q2009 20-inch computer monitor, and the seller sent me a Compaq s1922a 18-inch monitor.The monitor came poorly packed in a beat-up box without a stand, a power cord, or computer cable, which are fairly standard with a monitor. Also, it doesn't work on my system, which consists of 5 of these Compaq Q2009 monitors. I don't really care about the stand, power cord or cable, but they are extra expenses I guess he expected me to pay for.
Summary: This monitor is excellent. It is crystal clear, has good colors, and the speakers are not bad, either. I like that the display is not glossy and does not have problems reflections from the windows. We bought this for our family computer that sits on a desk in our main living area. It is big enough that the monitor can sit clear back against the wall and is still very usable, and it looks good on the desk.
Summary: I purchased this monitor in March and have had no problems with it. It looks good. It was easy to unpack and install. I have no problems with it other than the fact the sound isn't as loud as I would like. I have no problem hearing the sound but when I am playing a music video or song I like to have it up pretty loud but this monitor has the built in speakers and doesn't seem to amplify as much as I would like.
Summary: I upgraded to this Compaq monitor from an old HP 14"er. Man, what a difference. Welcome to new technology. Crisp and clear. Speakers work great. Menu for fine tuning settings. I don't need all the fancy plug-ins. This is the ticket. I say-GOOD BUY.
Summary: I love my new monitor! I still had the old HUGE, HEAVY monitor and this one is such a contrast to that old dinosaur. It works excellent, takes little room, and is light weight. Thanks so much Amazon.
Summary: I bought this monitor to replace a 19" Viewsonic widescreen that died suddenly on me. The second port on my video card is actually an HDMI port. The card manufacturer provided an HDMI to DVI adapter and I had no problem using it with the Viewsonic. When I bought this monitor, I looked everywhere to see if it had a DVI connector. I couldn't find anything in the spec that even suggested what kind of connection, VGA, DVI or otherwise. So I figure, at $130 just give it a go.
