Summary: This arrived promptly enough however, had the screws missing from the base (I cannibalized my old monitor). If that weren't enough, the little plastic button cap for the "on" and "off" button was missing. I knew it was used but really?
Summary: I own this monitor, and have since 04 or 05. It still works flawlessly. It looks almost as good as newer models, and has outlasted 3 computers. If you are in need of a cheap monitor, 50 dollars used is a great deal. the only thing that is close to a con is that it doesn't have built in speakers, which are cheap enough to buy external anyway.
Summary: This product does exactly what it is designed to do. The screen is clear and easy to read. The power and adjustment buttons are easy to access. I would recommend this product to anyone who doesn't need anything fancy.
Summary: This monitor seems to be very well built, better than my Samsung 941bw. But it has the same problems as my 941bw, way to bright with back light bleed. Also the monitor is very bright and the brightness has to be turned nearly all the way off. Same as the 941bw. The colors are very good and no dead pixels, but you have to do a lot of adjusting with this monitor.
Summary: When I saw a multi-sync compatable seventeen inch flat screen monitor with all the wistles and bells that this one offered , I naturally had to at least put a decent bid in and lo and behold I won. Upon reciving the monitor I was further impressed at the careful packing and care that was used in shipping and was pleased to find that it was all worth it as the monitor was in perfect condition and scratch free.
Summary: This thing is amazing. I have previously been the owner of 15, 17, and 21 inch Sony CRT's, and going to this is certainly a treat. It's very close to what a CRT puts out in my opinion. However, as LCD's tend to be, it has its rescrictions. Resolution is native at 1280x1024. This means that if you have trouble reading small print, or are a gamer with a weak graphics card (oxymoron!) then you should probably look either for a bigger screen, or stick with CRT's.
