Lenovo Thinkvision L197 Wide


The Lenovo ThinkVision L197 Wide ($239.99 list) is a no-frills 19-inch LCD monitor geared toward conservation-minded users who require a widescreen to run basic business applications. Color and light grayscale performance are quite good on this model,...

Good color and light grayscale performance. Low power usage

No USB ports. Limited adjustability. Weak vertical viewing angle

The Lenovo ThinkVision L197 Wide offers good image quality in a 19-inch widescreen monitor. You don't get much in the way of features, but if your office has gone green, you'll appreciate its low-power capabilities.

Good for the price


This is a good monitor for the money and given at the time there was a $50 rebate as well - couldn't be beat. The on-screen control buttons are MUCH more intuitive than a more expensive NEC that we have.
