Ease of Use

I ordered two of these units recently. Both arrived very quickly, and in perfect condition. These are very nice monitors, with plenty of viewing area. The only drawback is that both units had dead and/or stuck pixels. They meet the 'allowable' criteria, so they are not returnable as defective. Having said that, and considering the price of the units, they are still a very good buy.

Am now returning for the second time for a different reason. I would stay away from this one.

Good bang for your buck

by Ted on 3/12/2008

I purchased this from and the shipping was free and quick - better than most online vendors. The monitor is rediculously easy to set up and after a little fine tuning of the settings of my desktop I had the thing up and running in minutes. The contrast isn't stellar but it gets the job done. It sits next to my high contrast LCD TV and that thing blows it out of the water but it definitely will give you a good widescreen capability on your PC. I would recommend to anyone. Read More
