Summary: I am a CPA and use this monitor in Landscape mode to view full pages of tax returns at one time. I had the 19.1 inch model which was also NON wide screen. I am very happy with this monitor for this use.
Summary: This monitor arrived without a problem. So far it is working beautifully, hope that as a refurbished model it will hold up for a couple of years. Thank you for having this available as this model no longer is produced.
Summary: I bought two of these monitors two years and they are still working great. These are some of the last monitors built in a square format everything now is being built as a widescreen. That is great if your watching movies but for someone that is doing technical writing and research this viewing format is much better you have more vertical spacing (1600x1200). It allows for reading a full word doc page. Text shows up great as well as web pages.
Summary: The first monitor I got I had to send back because it was defective. It was manufactured Jan 2007 and it would shut down to a black screen or the screen would blink and would not come out of it. I read reviews of others having the same problem but they were manufactured during the middle of 2006. Any way the only problem was the shutting down NO dead pixels.
Summary: I've had this monitor for 7 months, and until now, had very few problems. I've seen the same problems other reviewers had with their DVI -- the screen would flicker to black periodically. I thought it was that my video card couldn't handle the output, so I switched to analog mode, and all was good. Until recently. The bottom two-thirds of the screen inexplicably decided to change its refresh rate from the normal 5ms to something really slow (more like 5 seconds).
Summary: I bought this monitor yesterday. Used mainly for 2D vector graphic programs such as AutoCAD. Running at 1600x 1200. Didn't expect it to be as good as my last monitor (21' CRT) and it isn't, but it's not bad. This is my first LCD monitor besides laptops and I was really worried about making the LCD jump, but I've worked with this monitor all day and would have to say that the display quality is acceptable.
