"Good, but may need a repair!"

This screen is a nice large size for working with small images (drawing programs, lines of code, or regular computer work). That really reduces eye strain.

To get the best picture, you can turn up the frequency the image is refreshed (using Windows XP, you can find that under the control panel, display, settings, click the adanced button, monitor, then choose the highest number of Hz you can from the drop-down box).

Sadly, my brand new monitor did not want to keep working for me! One day, it just wouldn't take the signal from my lap top (I'd had it about a month). I checked the cables, I checked my computer, and the technical support person said the card in the back of the monitor had broken, which was very disappointing.

Apparently, there is a warrenty on the monitor, and someone will come to pick up the broken monitor for repairs and lend me a new one in th mean time.... good thing I had a spare monitor because they still haven't come! I don't know if that's a trouble with the warranty, or just our local computer people's service.

I'm looking forward to when it's fixed because I enjoy using this monitor (I work at a computer for about 8 hours a day, and the big screen sure helps).

If you get one that doesn't happen to have the glitch where the card stops working, it should be a good monitor to choose.
