An inexpensive monitor that doe's what a "monitor" should do!
12 October 2012
Summary: I purchased this monitor for only one reason, and that was to use as an extension monitor to connect a seperate wireless VGA tranmitter to my existing computer in another room. In other words, I needed a monitor on my front counter that I could access and see the same thing that my main monitor in my office would see. This eliminated the need for cabling. I only had to purchase a wireless VGA transmitter/receiver and it was a done deal.
Summary: I was looking for a functional monitor--and I found it. It's not pretty, but it works fine. It was advertised correctly, and I wasn't expecting anything fancy. It's a plain, kind of dated monitor, that fills my needs for a second-computer display.
Good bargain monitor - not for critical or intense use

Summary: If you will use this monitor for many hours per day or you need a monitor that will have an excellent color rendition, then you may wish to look elsewhere. Text is not pin-prick sharp - certainly compared to my other LCD screen (Sharp 19") and colours are not even across the screen. HOWEVER, for occassional, non-critical use, I find this monitor to be a GOOD choice blending very good value with good looks and acceptable performance. Would I buy another one just like it?
Summary: I was issued a Planar PL1700 17 inch monitor for work. This is a monitor that had been used in another office for a few years. It was a great monitor for me for over a year. Then, with no warning, the On Screen Dialog box automatically turned on and started cycling through the choices. A quick Google check showed that this was a common issue with the PL1700, and it could not be fixed.
Summary: For the most part the product works great as long as you leave the settings alone. Unfortunatly the image disappears if I lower the brightness setting down to around 2/3 or less. Otherwise (if the settings are left alone) it seems to work great.
Summary: arrived in 1 week was super easy to hook-up to laptop for 2nd monitor works awesome GREAT PRICE THE PICTURE IS Many times better than the picture on my toshiba laptop will be getting one for my sons computer
Summary: I was truly impressed with this monitor . It looks like a CRT which is impressive . It was reconditioned so I got the monitor at a fraction of the cost .No scratches at all on the screen . That's a new product . I watch my Soap operas on the Planar monitor .I feel the quality is like watch High Definition tv.
