Summary: Caution! Don't buy this piece of crap! This is the most horrible purchase I have ever made on Amazon! And I am a very happy Amazon shopper. The screen is absolutely impossible to view or adjust. The brightness and contrast just won't balance. The resolution is the worst I have ever sceen. The sound quality is horrible and has to constantly be adjusted. The controls are not at all user friendly. I replaced my 15 year old screen for this piece of junk.

Summary: I have two computers--a primary and an auxiliary--connected to two monitors, and can easily switch between having both connected to one computer as a dual-headed configuration or having each computer have one monitor. When I upgraded my primary monitor to a 28" one (at 1920x1200), my secondary monitor at only 20 inches and 1200x1080 suddenly became claustrophobic. This model was an excellent upgrade to be my new secondary monitor.
Summary: If you have a small, outdated (perhaps one of those big box) monitors, the V7 22" will suit you just fine. It's big and great for watching videos like Netflix downloads from across the room. The built-in speakers are pretty good too, though they aren't high-def. The resolution (while listed as the same as my 21" iMac), however, is not nearly as crisp.
Summary: My husband and I are now the typical modern-day couple - we both have our own laptops. Most nights finds each of us on our laptops getting stuff done. This meant that we had to do something with our older desktop. We've got two children (9 and 6) so we decided to give it to them. They, however, weren't excited with playing with the old computer and would much rather use our laptops.
Summary: I bought this monitor because it fit in the bookshelf case on mt desk. This is a second monitor on my computer. First if you put the monitor in 1600 x 1200 the screen becomes bigger than the monitor, so the display moves when the curor gets to the edge of the screen. I set the display to 1680 x 1050 and the display fits the monitor with no moving around. If you are purchasing this monitor because it has speakers - don't. The speakers sound like a tin can phone.
Summary: I had been waiting to get a new wide screen monitor for some time and I studied and looked hard. This was all it said it was and at a great price. The speakers were a little puny but most people have external speakers any way. Not even close to a deal breaker. I got it in a few days. I recommend this to all that are looking. No more having to scroll from side to side.
Summary: All I can say is this is the nicest monitor available for this price. I liked it so well, I needed a 2nd one so I bought two. I purchased them about 3 months apart so I did have the chance to use and compare it with another one. It is Perfect. It probably wouldn't impress a Gaming Wizard, but all I needed them for is to work from home. I Love them both and if anything happened to one, I would by another V7 without any doubts.
Summary: High quality, I use it for work. Replaced company office monitor. Only minus is a height adjustment is not possible. Can not beat the price. Speakers are a little weak, but for the office use they are fine.
