KDS RAD-7BK Black 17" 35ms LCD Monitor 250 cd/m2 350:1


Pros: LCD monitor response time is actually 16 ms even though newegg lists it as 35 ms Crisp clear text Awesome for gaming, no streaking or ghosting on SoF2, HL, etc. Clear, intuitive display menu Comparatively inexpensive for similar models/features ...

Display is pretty bright, easily adjusted ; Sits pretty low, no way to adjust height ; Power plugs into connector at end of vga connector rather than into back of display ; Did my homework on LCD monitors, very happy with purchase. No dead pixels either

KDS RAD-7BK Black 17" 35ms LCD Monitor 250 cd/m2 350:1


Awesome, product... awesome price. I think I only have one dead pixel, but I expect even at least a few with these LCDs. I wasn't too happy with the lower resolutions, maybe my Refresh may have had to been adjusted, but the fonts seemed to have that...

KDS RAD-7BK Black 17" 35ms LCD Monitor 250 cd/m2 350:1


My idiot friend tried forcing the VGA connector upside down and broke a pin. KDS took care of the shipping and replacement monitor. I will buy from KDS (and of course NEWEGG) again!

KDS Rad 7 Still Hanging Tough After 2 ½ Years!


We opened a branch office about two and a half years ago. In the new office space was at a premium. Counter-space in the working area of the new office was very cramped. At this time we had no experience at all with flat panel monitors so we talked wit...

Compact design, nice viewing angle

A little dated and at the time, pricey.

Rad-7 continues KDS reputation as incredible value


The KDS Rad-5 (15") LCD monitor got wonderful reviews, and based on them I bought the Rad-7 as soon as it came out. I was not disapointed.

Good monitor that rivals big-name competitors


I was looking for a new monitor after my Sony 21" broke. I considered buying a LCD after seeing the clarity sharpness, and how little of my deskspace they took up. After looking at a Sony, Phillips, and Viewsonic 15" LCD monitors I couldn't adjust...


None so far
