4 out of 5 eggsSolid Monitor for the price

Pros: BRIGHT! That may be a con to some, but I adjusted the brightness down to a comfortable level and it's nice knowing just how blindingly bright it can get. I appreciate the fact that it doesn't have an external power brick even if it does make for a slightly thicker screen, and a little research indicates it is using a LG VA panel - which is a nice compromise between TN and IPS.

Cons: I'm not sure how you're supposed to wrestle it out of the box without destroying the styrofoam packaging. 6ms is a bit slow of a response time these days.

Other Thoughts: I'm coming from a 5 year old 22" 1680x1050 monitor so this was a huge jump in all areas. I wish it included a HDMI connector, but for the size and price range I can certainly work with DVI. For the work I'm doing/games I'm playing the response time is just fine and I'm quite happy with the purchase so far.

3 out of 5 eggs  ok PQ

Pros: Decent picture.

Cons: Cheaply made. Minimal connectivity. One VGA one DVI. No outs. Also very wide and low. Not suited for double monitor work. Ok as a 3rd TV somewhere, but I think 32" is more useful for about the same price.

3 out of 5 eggsOk Monitor

Pros: Good size for the price. It's bright, colors are good

Cons: Good for basic use and movies. Pretty bad ghosting on high contrast colors. Not too good for fast moving games, etc.

Other Thoughts: Pretty much the best price for this size monitor. It was actually a little bigger than I thought it would be next to a 24 inch. It is really bright and the colors are good. I wouldn't recommend for gaming because of the slow response time.

4 out of 5 eggsForgot to mention...

Pros: See my previous review.

Cons: See my previous review.

Other Thoughts: I forgot to mention the nice monitor package does not include a DVI cable. Only a D-Sub/VGA cable is provided. So, if you don't have a spare lying around, make sure you order one because you don't want to try and run this nice monitor with the included D-Sub (VGA) cable.

4 out of 5 eggsNice for the Price!

Pros: Color purity across the entire screen.
Excellent text reproduction, crystal clear.
Movies look nice but this is mainly used for business.

Cons: 1. No installation CD for monitor driver.
2. Downloaded the driver from Gateway and it is not digitally signed; however, they offer instruction on how to disable windows driver enforcement to get the driver installed. My advice is to forget the driver because the Windows PnP drivers works just fine.
3. Power on light is way too bright!
(see other reviewers comments). I contacted Gateway support and they offered no advice nor were they aware of this issue.

Other Thoughts: I had an overall ousy experience with Gateway (now Acer) support. They can hardly talk English and they are not technically oriented either. Thank goodness I didn't really need them.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Looks good, ran great for first week

Cons: Completely died during 2nd week, didn't keep the box so I will not be able to return under the 30 day policy.

Other Thoughts: I have bought several monitors from newegg in the past 10 years and have never had one die before. Keep the box!

5 out of 5 eggsNew Monitor

Pros: This monitor is such an upgrade! I went from a 23' find at a thrift shop to this and needless to say I am blown away! I haven't seen any dead pixels, ghosting, or light fading. If I had the funds, I would definitely get another. I

Cons: Only has two inputs, vga and dvi. Not a huge issue really, but I would like for it to at least have hdmi.

Other Thoughts: The plastic edges sometime reflect the sides of the screen, not really a con, just something I've noticed
