Summary: This is a pretty good monitor and gave good service until the capacitors inside went bad. Manufactured in 2006, lasted until mid-2010. Good 4 years of service.

Summary: First off, the pros, This is a really cost-effective, clear, clean monitor with great colors and and good response time for all my games. Comes with vga and DVI inputs and is just a good, solid monitor all around.
A good work-a-day monitor marred by a not so great stand.

Excerpt: This monitor was originally bought as a replacement for an older 17" LCD panel and what a difference! The picture quality is excellent for computing use with what looks like a great colour range and sharpness. The option of two inputs is handy (one DVI and one d-sub RGB) for multiple computers.
Summary: The specs sounded good, but when it came it seemed smaller than my 4:3 screen (it was not as tall). Also there was no control to force it to do a decent letterbox with old games, instead you had to put up with stretching.
Summary: The screen, no dead pixels, fast and bright, maybe overcolourful. Every cable needed, mains UK and German, VGA and DVI-D. A detailed explanation of the OSD menu and it's operation is very poor. Customer support agreed and had no knowledge of it being updated.
