Out of Focus


Initially good color and display.

Became fuzzy and unadjustable just after one-year warranty expiration.

Consumer review (

Bought it NEW for $49.00 after rebates.


Moderately sleek design, acceptable picture quality, INEXPENSIVE

Compaq's rebates takes forever, some difficulty adjusting it to personal preference, and it's a Compaq.

Flat screen, clear images, good extras.

It's kind of large.
