4 years and going strong, 2 millisecond response time makes this a great gaming monitor

Summary: I bought this specifically for use as a gaming monitor because of the 2 millisecond response time. Have had it now for almost 5 years with no problems. Cracked the screen accidentally recently and guess what it still works and after initially being distressed by the crack I don't even notice it anymore.
Summary: If you are thinking about using this monitor with a mac don't even bother. It's terrible. I've got it to work once and I still don't know how I did it. The monitor will flash a half second and then go back to looking for signals. I've gone through so many help pages looking for the answer and nothing has worked.
Summary: When the box arrived, it was so beat up. It had been torn, smushed, and it looked like someone attempted to tape it back together unsuccessfully. I wasn't sure what we were going to find inside! Surprisingly, the monitor was not cracked. We plugged it and it worked and is still working fine! We are happy with it.
Summary: I bought this item to be a second monitor to the Samsung 2253LW I bought a few years ago. I was a little weary buying a refurbished item from a vendor I've never done business with before, but Overstock.com was the only reputable vendor that still had this discontinued model. Since I'm anal retentive enough to not be able to handle having two monitors that didn't match, I bit the bullet, and outside of some stratches on the stand, the monitor was in great condition.
Summary: So far, so good. Graphics are great for games and video. Made the purchase to hook up with my daughters new HP computer and we all like it. The size is nice too. Very easy to hook up and assemble.
Summary: The picture quality of the monitor is very good, but the stand leaves much to be desired. You can not adjust the tile of the monitor and it tilts forward. It is also a little lopsided, so I have to put folded paper in just the right spot to get the monitor to lean at the proper angle and be level.
Summary: I received the monitor and it was not packaged well, there was a crack in the base so I returned it. Also, the screen would not tilt front and back and was tilted to far back. I did hook it up though and the picture was excellent.
Summary: For what you get at the price its a good deal however if you are looking for a quality product this isnt for you. The stand does not swivel or tilt which i did not know when i purchased and it extremely hard to adjust to where you need it to be viewable. The screen options are nice and quality of picture is good as well. like i said well worth the price if you are just looking for a larger moniter without spending the high dollar on small details.
Summary: This mon. was purchased for my daughter's room. This mon. goes to the output of the Direct TV Tuner. The quality is much more than required, as a Video to HDMI converter was needed to go between the Direct TV box and this Monitor. It came with an array of wall mounting hardware. Input selection is automatic (Plug & Play). M.S. in Panorama City, CA. Very Good buy !
