Wonderfull purchase


I am buying a new monitor to replace this one, but not because it is dead or dying. I simply want a larger screen and that delicious 144mhz. Will be using this monitor as a second, as it works perfectly still.

Excellent picture, no dead pixels even 3 years later. This monitor saw very heavy game usage, no ghosting or flickering. It has been through 3 computers, and no problems whatsoever. One of the best purchases on a monitor I have ever had

Great quality product


The monitor went all fuzzy withing 2 1/2 years but the manufacture honored the warranty and had to ship it out to them and they fixed it.

3 year warranty ; for $110 this is a great monitor ; Game Mode is a great surprise as some games are a bit hard to see with the natural settings

My only con about this monitor when mounted to the wall you have this piece of plastic hanging from the bottom of it and it really makes it look ugly and wont fit against the wall flat with a wall mount ; The speakers are junk and sound like a tin can,...

This was an upgrade from the super old monitors of long ago, with their 600x800 and long backs. I've been pleased with the easy display and quality of the monitor.

It's held up on me for quite a long time. Great for the price when I bought it, great display

none that I can really think of

What a screen!


4 years and I finally replaced this monitor. Why? Because I wanted to upgrade to HD for kicks and giggles. Nice, crisp picture, easy to use and reliable. It was my "television" for more than a year thanks to Hulu and NetFlix and it felt like I had a...

I have had no issues with this unit

Amazing monitor, never had any problems

Not 1920 x 1080 resolution i forgot to look at the resolution but it still looks crazy at this resolution

Good deal


I got this unit as a refurb. Looks brand new. No dead pixels. Excellent color. Came with plenty of cables and documentation

Horrid packing job. box was weak. Items like this should really be double boxed. Hence the three egg. Packaging is pretty important

Decent for the price


I was in a hurry with this purchase, saw the 600+ 5-egg average review scores, and just bought the thing. I'm not extremely disappointed with it, documentation aside, but I think I'll be going back to Viewsonic next time. Aside from that, I really hope...

Low price. Sufficient warranty period. Was able to eventually get the picture looking reasonably close to what I wanted. Two millisecond pixel response, depending

As most others have stated, OSD menu button layout isn't intuitive and button label visibility is practically nonexistent. If either one of these was rectified, the other wouldn't matter. I'm used to ASUS motherboard manuals often being cryptic, poorly...

The last of its kind


I specifically wanted a 22" 1680x1050 to replace my old Samsung of the same breed. That said, compared to my 6+ year dying Samsung.. Whole family agrees it just doesn't look as good. Everything looks washed out. I'm sure I'll get used to it overtime...

16:10 22", rarity these days ; 2ms response ; No dead pixels ; Easy setup/plugins

Front panel buttons are awful ; Spent hours attempting to calibrate, never have I seen a worse factory default ; A good starting point ; Brightness 60 ; Contrast 65 ; Sharpness 25 ; Saturation 50 ; ASCR OFF ; Overdrive 60 ; Color: User 100 RGB

Works great


Bought for $650 new from another seller and have been extremely happy with this system (for the price). I did upgrade the hard drive to a WD Scorpio Black 7200rpm with the money I saved. Play WoW and Age of Empires online smooth as silk even with...

Good color, good settings, works as advertised

Better than expected!


This monitor has surprised me from the second I got it out of the box. It was quick to assemble and set up, but it did take a while to get the colors right. (Splendid settings are all too bright and the presets given in other reviews seemed to "red" to...

Good Image Quality ; Colors Better than Expected ; Quick Start-Up

Buttons hard to find/read in the dark ; One dead pixel (bottom right side of the screen) upon delivery. (No big deal, decided to keep it anyway) ; Tedious set up if you want the colors to be correct
