Summary: If Satan and the Marquis de Sade ever teamed up and went into the hardware business, this is the monitor they would make. In this case, Satan is Microsoft (the kings of mediocrity) and deSade is Westinghouse. Together they teamed up to bring you this huge interface fail. The item has just one, big (major) problem. It is impossible to turn on. This is because 10 or 12 years ago some jackass invented the 'soft' power button.
Summary: This monitor has lasted me over 66+ months, it is nearly mint because I have taken such great care of it. Would buy another Westinghouse monitor if this one ever wants to give up. The color is great and sharpness is stellar.
Summary: This is a great monitor for the picture alone. I'm not sure what these where going for when they first came out back in '07, But I own two of them now and got them both in the $50-$75 range. Thats about what I think that they are worth. Don't get me wrong the brightness and contrast on these are great! With a 60hz refresh and 22" lcd screen, the picture is not the problem. The problem is with it's durability. The power boards have bad caps!
Summary: I got these on a black friday at target years ago before you needed pepper spray to battle through the mobs... and these have served me well for I guess 4 years now?? sharp text like nothing you have ever seen.. i take it for granted having used these for so long..
Summary: My husband bought out moniter after Christmas in 2008. For the past several months it too has been taking forever to turn on. I did have problems with it randomly shutting off, but fixed that by telling my computer to never put it into sleep or standby. I researched if this was a common probem and lo and behold it is. I was able to find a fix for it, 8 of the capitors need to be replaced. I found this on a repair website.
Summary: I bought this item used, so far its been good. The monitor has built in speakers so you don't need additional speakers to take up space. I don't have another monitor to compare the sharpness or color on the monitor but it seems to be pretty good. I use it to surf the web as well as to do paper work and it does its job as a monitor. I like the fact that is 22" so its good for watching movies or any kind of videos.
