Paperless

Boyan S., Newegg
13 April 2007
  • Summary: Great for casual use, somewhat old model, with one flaw and no dead pixels. Would not use it as primary monitor however, and wouldn't recommend it if not in a dual configuration.
  • Pros: Price. Great design, I put it next to my 1717S which now looks like carved from wood next to this baby. Portrait capable, I don't think I saw anybody mention this here! This is may be the main reason for me to buy it, great for reading PDF full screen, no need to print or scroll! DVI!
  • Cons: Dithering! Very disappointing but this monitor offers 6 bits per color channel as opposed to 8, which therefore causes bad dithering, it somewhat reminds me of my old matrix printer. What is the point of the DVI in this case I really don't know! 1st I thought it was the XP color profile, but the ...

Should have bought the Samsung?

Anonymous, Newegg
17 March 2006
  • Summary: The price drop on this monitor by Newegg has been incredible, an exceptionally good buy, without a rebate! And I did not need sunglasses to view the screen. For my PC, text is better with DVI. Given the gripes, should I have bought the Samsung? … Nah.
  • Pros: It’s has all the things you look for, in ahh, monitor: good looks, bright, clean image, flexible, and no dead pixels (at least for mine). The something extra helps: you can rotate the screen and it automatically (or manually through a few clicks) adjusts the image! I had considered others at abou...
  • Cons: The buttons…. there are only two people who could like the buttons, and they both posted reviews, the engineer who designed them and his mother. Not a deal killer for me. One other problem. The bundled software Forte Manager added display problems playing MPEG2 files or a DVD when “auto pivot” wa...

Wonderful monitor

Anonymous, Newegg
7 March 2006
  • Summary: Being a college student studying TV and video, its size and quality were very important in order to get it to fit on my tiny dorm room desk and be able to deliver excellent colors. This monitor covered both beautifully.
  • Pros: I decided to get this monitor because of its slim size and it's overall quality. I've been using it between my Powerbook and PC workstation and can't be happier. Pretty much no ghosting and displays colors quite wonderfully and close to their actual CRT look (I've edited a number of videos using ...
  • Cons: When turned vertically, brightness values are noticeably different. Solution: don't turn the monitor vertically :)

LG = Life is NOT Good!

Elvin E., Newegg
24 February 2006
  • Summary: At this point would you buy an LG product? This is my first and last time!!!
  • Pros: Well at least it looks cool and I like the blue button matches my Shuttle SN25P Button which is also blue ;}
  • Cons: LG = Life is NOT Good! I bought a New LG L1780U LCD (Not a referb) from Newegg after rebate only $xxx for monitor that will flip and rotate... COOL or so I thought with it beside my Shuttle SN25P. The problem started with back-light bleed and uneven color. I contacted Newegg they said to send it ...

Nice Monitor

Anonymous, Newegg
29 December 2005
  • Summary: I would recommend this monitor to anybody no matter what the purpose is of getting it.
  • Pros: I have 3 of these monitors (yes I know that sounds like over kill, but it has to do with my business) Not a one of them has ever had a dead pixel. Very crisp display. I would rate this a 10 if I could.
  • Cons: The only con I would say is the cost, They have wonderful deals and I payed no more then I would expect, but wouldn't it be great if everything was cheaper :-)
