Summary: At first I was very pleased with this monitor, but it often goes to sleep without any reason and that's a real inconvenience. I was told my graphics card might need more power so I upgraded my power supply and it still does it.
Summary: Purchased 2 months ago, now the power button fails to function, monitor fails to wake from sleep. The only way to get it to turn on is hold the power button with a lot of force until it turns off, then getting it to turn back on requires to again hold the button with force, some times takes as long...
Summary: At low resolution mode, there is a ghost line flying on the screen from bottom to right, at high resolution there are thick lines flying from left to right. Have to sell it and buy another one.
Summary: Set-up was simple. However, the quality of the text and coloring on screen appear washed-out and generally very poor.

The computer just had issues even recognizing the monitor, it only recognized it as a Generic Non PNP monitor which is what was...
Summary: I bought two monitors for two HP towers for work. After many hours trying to trouble shoot, I called HP. After an hour on hold, the supervisor told me that the two were incompatible and that they knew about the problem. I ask why are these available to buy, he said some work, some don't.
Make sure your graphics card can handle 1600 X900 resolution
28 September 2011
Summary: Please read the other reviews here. Make sure that your graphics card supports 1600 X 900 resolution. I thought mine did and it does not. Customer service is located in a country other than mine and is terrible.
Summary: Installed it and all it would do is go into sleep about 3 seconds after it turned on. This kept repeating in an endless cycle. I put the cd in and turned it on. This time the screen lit up but all it did was exhibit a constant flickering for about 30 seconds and then it would go into sleep mode.
