I got this monitor free with my new computer which is supplied by my broadband provider. I was expecting a 15" monitor but was upgraded to this for being one of their new customers.Anyway, I've been using it now for a number of months and have had no problems with it whatsoever. It's 19" view size is absolutely massive (compared to my old 15" flatscreen) and general web browsing and gaming looks brilliant on it now. The screen, as it is LCD, is very sharp and precise and has no dead pixels it in after around 6 months.
It has a large range of colour options, options to move the screen, easy to use buttons and on screen display and a large number of refresh rates and resolutions that it can display. The max is 1280x1024 which is brilliant for windows desktops, you can fit many windows on the screen at one time, excellent for multitasking.There are 5 buttons on the side of the monitor for navigating the on-screen menu, power and enter buttons. The enter button also acts as an automatic configuration facility (when not in the menu) so that when you press it, the monitor will automatically adjust the brightness and sharpness settings to give you the best view of whatever you're displaying. I have to say, this feature is particularly useful. I have a VGA box connected to the monitor so I can play the PS2 through it, and when I flick it back onto PC input, it sometimes can be a little fuzzy after playing the PS2 - one click of the enter button and monitor readjusts to the input from the PC.
The only problem I've had with it so far is that the stand that is supplied with it does seem a little loose and does tend to wobble slightly when I'm typing and particularly when the printer is going (as it does vibrate the desk somewhat) but it's just something you live with. For the price (which was free for me) it's a brilliant monitor, flat screen - larger than the standard 15" you get with PCs nowadays and made by a well-known and reputable company.It would probably be better in widescreen as it is a bit big and square - but does mean that you have a large view of you computer (or a TV screen as I use it for TV and PS2 aswell) without having to squint at a tiny 15" screen.
