VERY SHARP picture - great resolution

on 10/23/2006

Bought this wishing I could afford the 21" equivalent. I'm finding that the sharp resolution compensates for the smaller screen size. My eyes do not get as tired with this screen - and the HP rebate makes it more than affordable. I've had great luck with HP flat panels at work, so I am optimistic about the lifespan of this screen. also - zero dead pixels! great product A(-) only because of total screen size.
