Awesome Monitor


All I can say is "AWESOME"! With all the choices for LCD Monitors, it can be overwhelming.

Great monitor for the price


Great LCD for the price.

There is a lot of white bleed-in from the top, bottom, and sides.

Consumer review by: FlyTags (

Phenomenal monitor, after calibration.


No dead pixels, vivid colors, excellent contrast ratio, and plenty of brightness to go around.

Horrible contrast, brightness, and color balancing out of the box.

Simply Awesome


Big, bright and beautiful.

The base holds it, but it does seem a little wobbly.

Pretty good


Excelent contrast, no ghosting (unless your eyes watch a character and the camera goes by that character).

Leaves patches of pixels in movies.

Adjustability of base, no dead/stuck pixels, bezel exactly matches my 941BW.

It's not free.
