Summary: i love this monitor and its really great for cs 1.6. its got that 2ms which is nearly the best lcd other than the 120hz 22" that recently came out but for a fraction of the price. the only thing that i dont like about this monitor, is getting the colors to look realistic ingame as its hard to find the right colors and settings for the appearance but other than that its great.
Summary: I bought a refurbished version of this monitor, and am completely pleased. It has accurate colors and appropriate brightness. It has both analog and digital input and I am using the digital. I had to switch the input mode from analog to digital. My only criticism is the menuing and its controls, which are less intuitive than other monitors -- but, you only go through that once.
Summary: Just finished using a Spyder3 to calibrate it. Result? Exactly what I expected. The super-narrow viewing angle kills this thing completely. The bottom of the monitor is reddish and the top is greenish. Despite being in calibration. Avoid this. Plain and simple. I'm replacing it and selling this one.
attractive 19in model, but uses cheap 6 bit TN panel

Summary: I bought this when it first came out, and based my purchase mostly on the the specs and the increased color gamut. I wish I had waited and will probably buy a better monitor. I had a NEC crt 22 monitor prior to this and only replaced it because it died. The NEC was quite bulky but an excellent monitor. Unfortunately nobody makes 22 crt's anymore, so I went for the LCD. When I plugged this in, I was struck by the color difference.
Summary: I purchased 4 of these monitors for office use and gaming. Compared to the CRT I had before, these monitors are incredibly bright and crisp. In order to get the colours to look right, I had to fiddle with the settings quite a bit, and turn the brightness down to about 25%. My games look sharp and there is no ghosting except when changing your view of bright light sources, much the same as if you looked at the sun and then looked away.
Summary: This monitor is so worth it. The silver and gloss black exterior only alludes to what will happen when you turn it on. Im a graphic artist so its important that my monitor shows true and varying colors. The software automatically set the monitors color range. They are very close to pan tone range when compared to print outs! Also, the screen is very bright and clear. Im very pleased with this product and recommend it for gamers and artists who desire quality!
