1 out of 5 eggsVGA Bumpersticker

Pros: Light weight and cheap

Cons: it is very flimsy, cheap plastic. It only supports VGA, it cannot put the whole screen on the display (no matter what resolution I try). It is wide, but not tall. It's like looking at a bumper sticker

Other Thoughts: spend $50.00 more and get a real monitor.

5 out of 5 eggsCheap Almost HD AVI monitor

Pros: Cost $99.99+tax+shipping. low cost. 1360-768 hd quality pixels and 5/ms lag. This is an excellent buy of a low budget PC still running avi graphics.

Cons: No HDMI. No DVI. No drivers disk.

4 out of 5 eggsAcceptilble

Pros: Got just what I asked for, a basic monitor for a server.

Cons: Nothing major, but the stand is flimsy.

Other Thoughts: Only had it a short while and it is fine for a basic monitor. If your are doing anything for which visual presentation is remotely important, get something else. This is fine as a server monitor or for email or grunt work.

4 out of 5 eggsGood monitor at a reasonable price

Pros: The display is nice and bright without any glare, the presets are good and there's plenty of user customization available.

Cons: I have to agree with the other reviewer, the plug is the one drawback on this monitor, it's very sensitive and the slightest touch cuts the power off.

Other Thoughts: I'd still recommend this monitor, good display for a good price, just keep in mind the plug is very touchy.
