"Black" is not a supported color


Looks good in most cases ; Not one of those stupid widescreen monitors

Consumer review (

Bought 4 over 1 year


A Bit pricy for what you can get in a wide screen, but this is not wide screen.

4:3, good color and sturdy. Wall mountable, audio, DVI+VGA . Pair well together

A bit pricy

Consumer review (



Was a great upgrade from my old 15.6 inch widescreen, unbelievably larger screen-size. Mainly got it for retro-gaming due to less widescreen support back in the day.

Love the size, works perfect quality-wise especially for older games that only use 4:3 aspect ratio and was fairly cheap. Also shipping brought it in 2-3 days before it was supposed to arrive

None so far
