Love my monitor

Amazon Customer, Amazon
7 January 2010
  • Summary: I really like this monitor. I have had it over a year with no problems. There are only two little issues I had, neither with the quality of the monitor - first, when it was shipped, I somehow thought it would be in a plain box, but it was shipped in its original box, meaning there was a obvious...

Great Long Lasting Monitor

Nicholas Luers, Amazon

  • Summary: I have had this monitor since they came out in 2008, six years later and it's still running strong! I used it as a computer monitor for a while, I then used an HDMI to DVI cable and had my Xbox 360 connected to it. I had my Xbox running in 720p mode and the image was fantastic!

Not Impressed

M. Moran, Amazon

  • Summary: After recently burning out my old screen, I bought this and was very disappointed in the sound quality. Whatever the sound is above a certain volume the screen makes a buzzing noise, even if nothing (music, videos, etc) is playing.

Just what I had hoped for.

  • Summary: This monitor took a bit of figuring to get the setting right, but once I did I couldn't be more delighted. I personally did not have any trouble with glare or reflections. I would suggest that if this is a problem, you might consider turning off lamp behind you that are facing the screen.

Too sophistcated for an old duffer like me.

Marjorie I. Tuell, Amazon
9 August 2009
  • Summary: The monitor I purchased does not have a button to adjust the contrast, therefore everything looks washed out. I would like to have a book, not a CD to instruct me on how to make it the way I want it. Otherwise, I like the monitor! It certainly takes less room than the old one.

Eyestrain and Headaches Galore!!!!!!

ZBS, Amazon
6 August 2009
  • Summary: This monitor has the crispest text I have ever seen. On the other hand the reflections and glare of the highly polished screen is extremely annoying. I can see the benefits if you're going to be using this monitor to watch movies and gaming.

  • Summary: Excellent monitor though the image seems a tad elongated. Does not interfere at all with office functions, but might be an issue for detailed graphics.

Incomplete items

Mark Bonder, Amazon
24 July 2009
  • Summary: The seller sent this to me with only the monitor and power cord. No VGA cord or Audio Cable as specified in the description . . And no BASE! What am I supposed to do, lean it against the wall? I'm perfectly willing to amend this review after this is fixed, but for right now . . buyer beware.
