Don't purchase this used - 5 years old is the maximum life

  • Summary: The electrolytic capacitors fail between 1 year and 5 years. There are capacitor replacement kits on eBay for those handy with a soldering iron that want to keep the monitor alive.

high quality

  • Summary: I paid about $600 for one of these a few yrs back and unfortunately they stopped making them. Currently I have an ASUS 248QE. I didn't really want to have three different monitors for a triple monitor setup so I found this on ebay and it works great.

OK but made in China so will die in couple of years.

  • Summary: This monitor has a beautiful picture when it works but it's made in China so expect it to die in just a couple years. I picked up one at Goodwill for $15 that looked to be in good shape but it wouldn't turn on and the power button blinked all the time like it was in power saving mode.

Had a problem but customer service=A+

  • Summary: I purchased this product in early 2009, and was extraordinarly happy with it. I had upgraded from a 15" CRT so of course a 20.1 inch LCD was a drastic improvement. I did get a lot of compliments on the quality of the monitor as well.

Good LCD Monitor / Excellent Seller

Jeff Caldwell, Amazon
21 March 2010
  • Summary: I bought the monitor in "used / very good" condition, but when it arrived and I plugged it in there was a small black line across the screen. The seller accepted the return without any problems, which is all anyone can ask.

A good choice

  • Summary: If I have personally gleaned anything from ownership of this monitor and perusal of the reviews for it and another model, the syncmaster 204b, it would be that I am clearly less discriminating than many other users.

Faulty Manufacturing

Katie I. Ryan "aekatie7", Amazon
26 October 2008
  • Summary: The monitor itself works great. There was 1 pixel missing when I opened the product however. Over time, the metal pieces connecting the monitor to the stand have allowed gravity to take its toll - the pieces bent so that the monitor now looks down.

2 broken monitors in a row

C. Hessel, Amazon
26 April 2008
  • Summary: I received this monitor as part of a Dell system. When I opened the box I discovered a small dent in the upper right portion of the enclosure. Despite my gut feeling about returning it immediately I began using the monitor and had 5 months of faultless performance.
