Summary: I have been using this monitor for about a month now; not long enough to make a definitive statement, but enough to give early impressions. Those impressions are all very very positive. Out of the box, it was fairly easy to assemble the base that it sits on, more or less. I had some initial problems attaching the base, and was slow to figure it out using the illustration that is provided as instruction. A brief pause lead me to realize I appeared to be missing a part.
Summary: I purchased this monitor for an old PC I have with XP on it. I am pleasantly surprised at the quality of the monitor and the picture. Both are excellent. The is my first monitor at this price, I normally use Dell monitors....usually you get what you pay for and at $99.00 I wasn't expecting much. Don't let the price fool you. It is very nice.
