Summary: Better picture quality than I expected, and was just expecting a little above average for its price range. Its 5/23/13 and I have 5 dead pixels which I guess is average for something manufactured in 2007. Design still looks clean and simple compared to newer monitors. Viewing area is good using Windows XP and Vista. Adequate when viewing photos and looks okay when playing games.
Summary: Wonderful monitor. IMO I believe that it is the BEST 19" monitor available on the market atm. \ With its 2ms and 2000:1 contrast ratio, it will be sure to look great on anything! Be sure to shell the extra $ and get the DVI adaption cord. Makes all the difference! + works with Mac. Fabulous product, couldn't be happier!
Summary: Bought this monitor in Dec of 2007 at Best Buy. The price was ok, comparable to other similar models. Setup was easy, just follow the installation CD. The users guide is also on CD (not to good if the monitor doesn't work). The power light went out after a thunder storm and nothing I tried would bring it back. Got 3 and a half years of good use out of this one so will probably just go buy another one.
Summary: I recently purchased this monitor and I've been pleased with the quality so far. When comparing it to other monitors, it was hard to find a 19inch (3000:1, 1440x900, 2ms response time) with the same features for this price. Very crisp LCD.
Summary: I was a little anxious about buying a monitor sight-unseen, based on pictures and specs found on the Internet. However, I couldn't be happier with this unit. It looks great and it performs great. (By the way, mine came with a black pedistal -- which I consider a plus.) The image is crisp and sharp, the colors are fine, and the screen can be easily viewed from pretty extreme angles with only a little loss of brightness.
Summary: I love this monitor. i do a lot of reading and gaming on my pc and the f~engine functions allow for a quick color tweak for less strain on the eyes and this thing is beautiful. It was a gift to me so i can't say anything about price but i am planning on getting one to match if that says anything.
