nice monitor


I bought this as a monitor and attached it to a Mac Mini with a DVI-D to HDMI adapter.It looks great. Easy to set up. Complains about no accurate time source from the TV side. Good value for the money.I threw up a cheap unamplified antenna that I had...

perfect for laptop external monitor


I bought this as a larger, brighter display for my laptop (Toshiba U205-S5022 ... 2 1/2 years young ... XP Professional - upgraded to 2GB RAM - stellar investment BTW!). This fit the bill almost perfectly (see 'mini' cons listed above). My other...

bright, clear image; high contrast ratio ; its close match (1360x768) to my 12.1" laptop screen resolution (1280x800) makes it an excellent choice for an external monitor ; VGA and DVI-D ; intuitive controls & menu; good control/calibration software ;...

standard stand is tilt only; will need something to put it on or a swing arm/wall mount to raise it above the level of your open laptop (unless you have a docking station a la Dell Latitude, of course) ; a perfect match to native laptop resolution...

Better then I expacted


Fits perfectly on my desk, Touch buttons instead of actual buttons

Beautiful monitor!



Beautiful monitor! Easy to assemble and set up! No dead pixels

Driver software on CD does not work with Windows Vista 64-bit OSes! You have to register the monitor before you can locate the proper driver software for Vista 64-bit OSes. However, once you find it, and install the driver for your particular...

Good Brand, Good Price


Still glad i bought it, solid monitor, good brand, and looks great.

The monitor has a alot of little bells and whistles which make it a bargain. The 15000:1 contrast ratio is noticable and it had power saving features ; Ive tried this monitor on movies, gaming, and benchmarks, and its absolutely fine

since its 18.5", its max res is 1360x768. Still not bad though ; The Asus 19" went on sale with free shipping 2 days after i ordered this one

Consumer review by:

perfect size for dorm room


If youre taking a desktop to college and youre looking for a good small monitor to take with you, this is the monitor for you. I also have this paired with a Samsung SyncMaster 2333HD. Awsome combo

Its small, sharp picture/looking, samsung, dvi, fun heat sensitive buttons

Its small

An overall great monitor


The pros do outweigh the cons in this product. Its still better then my old monitor from 2004 then could only reach a max resolution of 1024x768. Yeah if your looking for a clean,good quality monitor this is a great monitor for the price, also cause...

Easy setup ; Comes with a cd for easy setup ; Fast shipping ; Good quality, no lag when playing games or watching videos ; Came with needed plugs ( didn't have to buy or use my own) ; A nice and secure stand

The monitor is very small, with max resolutions of 1360x768 ; For me this is a very small resolution

Consumer review by:

couldn't ask for more


It arrived in 1 day (i live in CA) and when I opened it up the screen turned out to be bigger than what I was expecting. So thats a plus. Nice sleek look to it. My only complaint is that the stand is really short. Had to put something under the stand...

Light-weight. Great quality, decent price. Easy to get running


Consumer review by:

Overall good, but a little pricy


Unless you're doing serious graphics work that requires excellent color production, this monitor is great. The blacks aren't quit dark enough to make it great for movies either--but it's a 20 inch monitor and movies aren't one of its main purposes. If...

Very adjustable stand ; Convenient USB ; Overall, acceptable picture (colors, contrast, etc.)

Touch controls are annoying ; The Blue power LED is annoying in the blinking stand-by state
