Gateway FPD2185W

 

It used to be that to enjoy truly pristine graphics, your only option was to spring for a huge and unwieldy CRT display. Nowadays though, many modern LCD monitors offer the same sharp resolutions and excellent color fidelity, which professionals crave....

Excellent image quality. Lots of video connections. Highly adjustable

Chintzy warranty. DVI cable not included

The Gateway FPD2185W is a stylish 21-inch widescreen LCD that delivers better-than-average performance and lots of features. This 21-inch Gateway LCD is also very reasonably priced.

The Gateway FPD2185W's excellent image quality, adjustability, extra features, and decent price make it tough to beat. A longer standard warranty, toll-free tech support, and better video playback quality would make it invincible.

Superb overall image quality; extremely adjustable; affordably priced; has loads of connections, including HDTV, composite, component, S-Video, and USB ports.

Merely average DVD-playback quality; skimpy one-year warranty; DVI cable and speakers sold separately.

The Gateway FPD2185W's excellent image quality, adjustability, extra features, and decent price make it tough to beat.

Gateway FPD2185W

 

Far sexier than a cow grazing in a field, Gateway's beefy monitor makes others look like cud.

Handsome, versatile cabinet; big screen; and lots of inputs

Grayscale issues affect image detail; inconvenient OSD buttons

So while this LCD offers a lot of bang for the buck in terms of features, it comes at the expense of top-notch image quality.

Gateway FPD2185W 21 in. LCD TV

 

My Epinions Philosophy When I make a purchase, epinions is one of my most valuable resources for non-biased experiences and information. When I come here to research a product I generally read reviews and the product specifications on other ...

Bright, fast, portrait orientation, video inputs

Early versions seem to have failures of EDID and DVI.

Excellent Monitor, Wish I Could Say The Same For Quality

 

I had purchased this monitor and it worked flawlessly. Until recently, that is. The colours are brilliant, the functions are great, and the sleek look is second to none. The blacks are not as black as those on a CRT, but this is to be expected on an ...

Gateway Surprises with an outstanding Monitor!

 

Attractive design, 90 degree rotation, USB-hub built in, HD ready, 1000:1 contrast ratio

EZTune Software is useless, USB Hub configuration is not intuitive
