FPD1975W

 

The Gateway FPD1975W is cheap, but you'll need to settle for average image quality and shell out for extras (like a DVI cable) that should come standard.

Bundled display setting software Clean design

Average performance Extras unreasonably increase cost

The price-to-performance ratio of the Gateway FPD1975W seems a bit unfavorable to me. A built-in adjustable stand and bundled DVI cable would make it a better value

Gateway FPD1975W

 

The Gateway FPD1975W is a serviceable, reasonably priced 19-inch LCD monitor with a high-res widescreen.

Affordable. Good small-text reproduction.

Weak grayscale performance. Adjustable stand costs extra. One-year warranty.

Gateway FPD1975W 19-Inch Widescreen LCD Monitor Review and Prices

Gateway FPD1975W

 

The FPD1975W is an affordable monitor that performs well. An optional stand gives you extra USB ports, as well as swivel and pivot capabilities.

Low price; great performance; excellent text readability; good-looking DVD-video playback

One-year warranty; doesn't include DVI cable; uneven color reproduction at dark end of spectrum

Double your display real estate by adding a second monitor. It's a snap: Here's how

The Gateway FPD1975W's image quality is average, and you'll have to pay extra for a DVI cable and adjustable stand.

Nice Monitor

 

I have had this Gateway monitor for about a year now. After I finally got it all installed -it has been great. I don't personally recommend EZtune software that comes with it as it apparently didn't like my video card and before I figured all that out,...

Nice price and picture

Can be a pain to get up and running

Stuck Pixel, Common "feature"?

 

My five year old Gateway monitor died. I needed a new one. I shopped all the computer stores yesterday and settled on the Gateway FPD1975W. Gateway is my computer company of choice, so finding a 19" one on sale for $219 was excellent. As soon as I ...

Beautiful, crisp picture
