Consumer review by: Staple Bench (



I bought 4 and one was immediately poor quality output but the client did not complain. Said it was better than the Dell monitor he had previous.. The second died right after a months use. Already swapped cords and reset but that's what the RMA process...

Good value for a 17

Bad picture on two of the 4 I bought. You can wiggle the cord and it will distort the picture even though the cable is tightly secured to the PC and the Monitor. Tap on lower left rear section and you can almost get the screen readable
