Summary: This monitor arrived BROKEN out of the box. The sellers ad said "new in box" The box the monter arived in was un-damaged. The unit inside the box was un-damaged The box had all of the right cables except the power cable had white paint spots on it.
Summary: First of all it should be noted that it is a monitor, not a computer monitor. It works better as a monitor for your dvd player or 2nd generation console (using its component video inputs) rather than a serious computer monitor. The VGA input is very poor: computer images are ghosted and faded.
Summary: I bought one of these about 6 months ago as a replacement for another monitor that was unreliable. From the beginning this one wasn't much better. Right away I had problems with it recognizing the computer and refusing to display or switch out of standby.
Summary: I bought this monitor from a local "Big Box" store. It worked well for about one year. However, It gave off a lot of "heat" from the screen. It developed an issue with the power supply. To turn it back on (after sleep or power off) I had to physically unplug and replug power cord at wall or back.
Summary: Looked great initially. After a couple of years, the monitor would stay on when you would try to turn it off or when it went into suspend mode. I had to unplug the monitor to turn it off. Then the on/off switch broke. Research shows others with a similar problem. Conclusion: bad power supply design.
Summary: I've had this a while and it works every other week I get my hopes up because its working and then it wont even turn on for a week. Something is very wrong with this monitor...beware! Not a great investment avoid at all costs.
