Pros: Best Monitor I've ever owned, Colors vivid, Contrast awesome, performs flawlessly for all tasking. Rock solid for 9 years going on 10 and the picture quality is like the day I purchased it this has been mainly used for office use , however it has also seen it's share of heavy duty gaming from the...
Summary: I've been using this monitor for over 7 years now in a 24/7 environment, mostly for gaming. I only turn it off once or twice a year (when I leave for more than a couple days, on vacation for example). 2 years ago this became my 2nd monitor and I bought a 24" samsung as my main.
Pros: Great contrast, what really stands out is the darks are really dark as they should be (not washed out/hazy). No dead pixels, not even after 7 years!
Cons: Not much to complain about, after about 5 years of ownership the buttons on the button (mainly the power button) started getting tricky to use. It still works, but obviously takes a second or two before it recognizes I'm trying to turn it off/on.
Summary: I bought this monitor over a year and a half ago and it has been great. It looks great on games and movies. The only thing about it is I put a small scratch on it and I don't remember doing it so its screen might be a little soft. But it is glare resistant only showing up when the screen is black.
Summary: The native resolution means that you need to run your video card at that resolution and can be a bit small for normal tasks. Make sure your video card can handle it. The 3 year warranty makes me feel better after my last monitor died 13 months after I got it (yes the warranty was 12 months).
Pros: Excellent Monitor. No ghosting and nice colors. The "opticlear" gloss finish makes it look even better. Some reviewers say the glossy finish is a con, but as long as you don't have a bright light behind you, the picture looks awesome with the gloss finish.
Cons: The glossy finish can make for bad glare, but if you have the room decently shaded, it's not a problem. The blue power light is a little bright.
Summary: This display brings tears to my eye. It makes my computing experience wet, (with tears). This thing injected new life into my computing habits, (which lead to the demise of the relationship between my girlfriend & I: I wish she looked this good).
Pros: Amazing! Brilliant color definition. Clear seperation of "dark & lights". Very nice menu buttons & options. 4 USB ports on-board! Silver housing matches my decor & doesn't show dust . Good response time for DOOM & QUAKE. Native res is perfect for most games @ high quality settings. Makes my video...
Cons: Wish all 4 USB ports were on the bottom, (2 are on the bottom & 2 are on the side which makes getting the 2 on the side rough because my display is a corner, but I managed to 3M tape a USB port on the bottom of my self which turned out pretty effin' nice).
probably the best 19" 4:3 LCD monitor that is currently available

Summary: This monitor has a glossy "Opticlear" coating, which can be either good or a bad thing depending on the lighting in your room - with no light coming into your room it greatly improves the contrast and makes color more "vibrant", but if you have a moderate level of light coming into your room (the...
Pros: Fast response rate, very uniform backlighting with no noticeable "leakage" on any side (just like I expected from LCD monitor made by NEC), very bright.
Cons: This is a 6-bit TN panel so color dithering is rather noticeable especially if you've been a long-time user of a good CRT monitor (like I was), the silver bezel+buttons are kind of distracting in certain situations and there's no other bezel color choice. No height adjustment.
Summary: I don't know what I'm going to do with it. It looks great, and works well for me at night, but the rest of my family can't even use it during the day. I guess the old monitor is coming back and I'll...eat the $200 on this one. :(
Pros: - Great picture - Very bright - nice appearance - everything except glare
Cons: - glare is ridiculous. It is pretty much unusable during the day. Admittedly I put it in a room with too much sun, but geez.
Summary: Has a built in USB hub which put 4 more USB ports at your fingertips. Has a swivel base that makes adjusting the view angle a breeze. The forward/reverse tilt is very generous. Beautiful monitor
Pros: Replacement monitor for a customer of mine. Used it for a week to verify all pixels were working properly. The color and sharpness of this LCD monitor are very nice. Nice ultimate gaming nice, but I would definitely recommend this monitor to anyone who uses their computer for primarily surfing th...
