Not bad at all
This review is from: lenovo ThinkVision L197 Black 19" 5ms Widescreen LCD Monitor 250 cd/m2 1,000:1
Pros: Its native resolution is 1440x900 @ 75 Hz, the latter figure cutting down on eye strain. The brightness, while not that high, is just right for watching movies, playing games, and business applications. The dual DVI/VGA outputs are nice, as well. And the bezel is nice and thin.
Cons: It could use a higher contrast ratio (it's only 1000:1), the base is a little awkward when it comes to adjusting angles, and an HDMI port would have been nice. It also makes a strange, faint clicking sound every once in a while.
Other Thoughts: It's really not bad. Along with IBM/lenovo's other products, this thing was designed to be business-oriented. But it can handle playing video games with no ghosting (the 5 ms response time is nice, as well as the 75 Hz) and watching movies. I have it as a second screen in my dual-screen configuration on my Alienware M11x R1 laptop so I can multitask, and it doesn't fail to deliver.
