Excellent while it works...

Kurt Halva, Amazon

  • Summary: After over 3 years of good use, and now past warranty, this monitor now has an annoying flicker that lasts about 5 minutes after startup. While it is flickering, it is unusable. This condition does go away, but every day when I start my computer, the flicker lasts a little longer.

Good monitor - some issues

  • Summary: First off I would like to say that there are 2 versions on this monitor. There is the "S" panel and the "A" panel. To be blunt, the S panel seems to be superior as it has less backlight bleeding.

Mixed Feelings & Intermittent Red Noise On Screen

SuperHomer2142, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this monitor from my local Fry's in Decemeber 2007. It was on sale for $270 and the picture in store was great. For that price, I couldn't pass it up. However, it took me longer than normal to setup the colors properly - everything seemed to have a blue tint to it.

good price, but the blacks aren't black

  • Summary: A monitor at this size is a great price. However alot of the light leaks past when the screen is supposed to be "black," a minor thing, but gets to be annoying when your watching movies or podcasts. Also the color support will not suffice for photoshop type work.
