Summary: I bought this as a second monitor, to match my existing monitor. The color depth, brightness, adjustability of this monitor is great. Getting a second for about $100 less than I paid for the first one is great. I now have two IDENTICAL 22" monitors side-by-side. Very nice. This monitor was cheaper than my low-end Soyo 22", which doesn't have the same image quality. Worth the $$.
Summary: This monitor has a 22" wide screen however the height of the screen gives a very nice working area. The built in options are very useful too (I recommend tuning down the factory set brightness). The price of the refurbished model is a great value for the quality of the product.
Pros: Purchased this to replace a dead 17' CRT. Very good range of color, contrast ratio, bright whites, and very good crispness/smooth motion on action scenes. Using DVI input and no issues after 7 months of ownership.
Summary: This is actually my second monitor I have purchased. I have them setup as dual screen monitors. Can't beat the price for this model. The refurbished seems brand new. Not a single bad pixel on either of them.
Cons: Where do I start... 1. Awful color - Terrible picture, compared to any decent LCD 2. Bad controls - Located directly under the monitor just awful to work! 3. Does not support 1080! 4. Bad contrast view angle 5. more..
Pros: Great picture quality at 1050 x 1680. And super fast 2ms(gtg) refresh rate means almost no ghosting when watching fast moving video and games. The picture is very bright with a wide viewing angle. And it only uses 40 watts and 1 watt in stand by.
