Good monitor until the backlight goes out

Summary: I hope the 3rd one has its backlight go out before my 36 months of warrantee is up.
Pros: 1920x1200. "1080p" is junk for real work on a computer. I LOVE that extra 120px.
Cons: Low vertical viewing angle. Backlight went out on the first one after about 12 months of ownership. SAMSUNG replaced it really fast and for 100% free. Backlight on my second unit tonight (25 months after purchase). I am on chat and will have it resolved and sent out tomorrow morning. I am happy w...
Pros: 1920x1200, great stand, ok contrast, no dead pixels
Cons: outdated at this point. newer screens are thinner, have more contrast, better for your eyes. you're paying about a $100 premium on this monitor for the nice stand. it's better to just buy a regular monitor and a separate REALLY nice stand for the same $100. Mine started buzzing, not too loud, but...
Summary: Most of the standard display settings (Custom, Sport, Movie, Dynamic) are set at 100 percent brightness. The presets for Text and Internet are set at much lower brightness levels (38 and 46 or something like that).
Pros: Nice, big, bright screen; clear text.
Cons: Way too bright to look at for long, and makes buzzing sound if brightness level is reduced below 96 percent.
Summary: These are super duper for most everyone. I'm not going to spend $550 on a 24 inch IPS panel LCD.
Pros: Great 1900x1200 monitors, I have a bunch of older 245BW monitors at clients going strong but these are the replacements now. Running three in widescreen. Glad they are back in production.
Cons: First manufactured in 2008 so no Displayport... but not really needed. Get the Accell adapter for Eyefinity if you need it . Also be aware this IS a TN pane but then again it's not $600. For 90 percent of us these are great. Sure is better than a 1994 Viewsonic 17 inch CRT (still got one).
