Is it ON?!?

 

I purchased two of these from Provantage. One of them arrived almost completely dead. The back light would come up, but there was no display. Even the OSD menu would not come up. The other one came on, but had a strong blue tint. Adjusting the OSD had...

One of the few full 1920X1200 monitors left. One of the few S-PVA panels left. Lots of desktop real estate. No dead pixels

No power LED, there is no way to tell if the monitor is off or sleeping. The menu buttons ARE very cheap and click loudly. Color, brightness and contrast adjustment has minimal effect on the picture

Great bang for the buck.

 

I was originally extremely happy with this purchase until I saw what appears to be the EXACT same monitor being sold in my local Costco store for $100 less. After further inspection, it appears as though other companies are using the EXACT same shell...

Picture quality & value. Non-TN panel. 3-years warranty. Ordered on Wednesday...showed up in front of my door Friday morning. Of course this has nothing to do with the panel...but I wanted to give a shout-out to Neweggs' extremely fast service....

1 stuck pixel. Generic outer shell. I was suprised the monitor ships out in its original box...aka...I was expecting a box within a generic brown box if that makes sense

Everything but the dead pixel in both of the monitors I bought

1 bright red pixel thats stuck in one and one bright pale color pixel in the other

Great!

 

Viewing angels are great, stand is decent and better than most. All around a steal for the price. The colors are bright and vivid. Forget the brand, it has a samsung s-pva. I have gone with Viewera the last year and haven't been disappointed....

Absolutely gorgeous! Bought this for a friend, and immediately replaced my 22in. Viewera monitor with this one. The difference between 6bit w/ dithering and 8bit was so much more than expected

Don't need the USB hub, but makes no difference I just won't use it

Excellent monitor

 

Price is good for a S-PVA screen. Others comment that OSD is a pain, but that's clearly subjective--had no problems. I'm a gamer who does some amature photography and web/logo design on the side. I switched to this monitor from my old 21" IBM P260...

Amazing Clarity, brightness, and color depth. I have this sitting next to a TN monitor and the difference is VERY CLEAR. Price is good for S-PVA. Stand is fully adjustable (tilt, swivel, & height) ; No dead pixels! Colors look amazing compared to the...

None, really

Great quality

 

I wasn't particularly enamored by Newegg's LCD policy, so I went elsewhere to buy it despite Newegg being my primary source for computer gear. Also, someone said it was shiny? It's definitely matte. In fact, all surfaces, whether it be the bezel or...

I'm new to high-end LCDs (my laptop screen had < 60 vertical degree viewing angles), but to put it in one word, awesome. It's really bright, and my room is pretty dark, so I'm running it at 0 brightness. Yup. 0. Viewing angles are excellent, as...

The OSD is terrible. Controls are counterintuitive, and switching inputs is a pain (it does autoswitch when only one signal is detected though)

Everything that I wanted

 

I highly recommend this monitor. It is a great find in its price range. Note: I did not yet test the speakers or USB functionality.

This monitor was everything that I expected. It's HUGE and the stand is great for a monitor in this price range (it allows for height adjustment, tilt, and swivel). This monitor TOWERS in portrait mode. It is VERY bright if you please, the adjustment...

After having my last monitor for a year, it is taking some getting used to ; Also, you will most likely need to do some adjusting out of the box. That is, unless you enjoy being blinded

Get Out Your Sunglasses and Tanning Oil

 

A truly amazing monitor at a relatively cheap price. Don't let the name fool you, its still a samsung panel.

BRIGHT!!!!!! I set brightness to 50 and its still blinding. Very true color representations. Makes HD content look amazing. I also use this with a 360 using the d-sub input, and it looks pretty good. 6ms response is fine for gaming. No ghosting or...

Menu is kinda hard to navigate. No source button, makes switching to d-sub for 360 a pain. Little green light on power button can be distracting when watching a movie in a dark room. Be prepared to use software to change color preferences

Shiny

 

Shiny monitor with very minor issues. I have not had the opportunity to compare it with competing products, but feel relatively confident that it compares favorably.

Very, very nice monitor. Painfully bright if desired (I had to turn it down to 10/100), more contrast than is healthy and zero dead pixels. Also very little backlight leakage when placed next to a generic Dell monitor

The DVI cable that came with it died abruptly after about 4 days, creating a very strange shimmy effect. This was easily fixed by replacing the cable. Colors are not pre-calibrated, so be prepared to adjust them. Also, it tends to shake when placed on...
