5 out of 5 eggsWish they were still available.

Pros: Good price, nice size, 1900 x 1200 resolution.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: I really with this monitor was still available. I'd love to have a second. I've owned mine for over a year with no problems. No dead pixels that I'm aware of.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat monitor

Pros: Fantastic monitor. I have had this monitor for a couple years and wish I could buy a couple more. I have been extremely rough with this thing due to hauling it around to friends houses and moving and it has had no issues. The picture quality is amazing and I love the 1920x1200 resolution. Gaming is perfect with this thing sitting on your desk. Definitely worth the money.

Cons: Speakers on rear of monitor. This is not the end of the world but you lose a lot of sound quality. I just use external speakers when I have it at home and headphones when at a LAN party.

Other Thoughts: Great buy, I really wish Newegg still stocked them so I could buy a couple more for a triple-screen setup.

1 out of 5 eggsTerrible customer service if something goes wrong

Pros: beautiful while it worked

Cons: the 3 years warranty is useless when customer service doesn't answer inquiries about the monitor.
I've sent 3 separate emails asking about the warranty as one of the two monitors I bought has red banding and color issues.
Haven't heard a word from them.

I wont buy anything from this company again.

1 out of 5 eggsDIED JUST AFTER 2 YEARS!!!

Pros: Worked just fine when it worked.. nice picture.

Cons: Died 2 years and 1 month after purchase: screen turned white and stays white when powering up computer. At first, I thought it was my computer that was at fault, but then I hooked up an old Dell monitor that I had and that worked fine. I also tried switching video cables but no change. There's a 3 year parts/labor warranty BUT ONLY 1 YEAR ON THE PANEL (clearly stated in the warranty pamphlet) which the Hanns-G tech told me on the phone he was pretty sure is what had failed. To repair it out of warranty would cost $175+ NOT including shipping it to the repair facility of which there is only one (CA.) So I'm out $240 for a monitor that lasted just over 2 years which to me is total baloney. Never again. Next time, I'm purchasing a reliable known brand and taking out a Square Trade extended warranty for $50.

Other Thoughts: What I thought was funny is when the tech tried to tell me how much better the warranty was on this monitor than most other manufacturers' warranties, going on and on how they extended the warranty to 3 years where most others are only 1 year. I asked him if they extended the warranty to 3 years parts/labor why didn't they do the same for the panel?? He tried to talk around it without answering the question and I cut-off his spiel and told him he wasn't answering my question and I reiterated it again. Finally, he said he "didn't know." What a joke!

3 out of 5 eggsAffordable, not sure yet on Dependable

Pros: * Good monitor for price

Cons: * Adjustments don't really do anything as far as picture quality.
* Color accuracy not bad (after you calibrate).
* Not as vibrant as an expensive monitor, but for the price who cares.
* Had one monitor die randomly after 1 year of use, more info below.
* Only 1yr warranty on backlights. Hope the backlight doesn't go out!

Other Thoughts: * The adjustments not actually doing anything I'm referring to Brightness, Contrast, etc. For instance the brightness and contrast should adjust your peak white and black levels, it's actually just increasing the backlight.
* Precalibrated the gamma clocked in at 2.6 with a delta e of 3.67. Grayscale was up and down but generally all colors were too washed out, with red being way to low compared to green and blue. The brights were way too bright, but generally the whole thing is too bright, especially blues and greens.
* Postcalibrated I was able to clock it in a lot better, but not great. Gamma at 2.17, delta e still at 3.67. Now my greens are a little sharp on the darks, not enough on highs, while blues and reds are opposite. It sounds bad but it's a lot better than it was stock. However I've got it next to of my 27" IPS Korean specials and it's good enough now that I have no reason to swap it out. Did take almost all my settings being set manually in Nvidia's drivers.
* I use one as a secondary, and one for gaming on the weekends for my buddies. The gaming one started randomly shutting off a few weeks ago, probably bad cap or caps. Hanns-G RMA isn't the greatest, but I was able to get it to them and back for about 20$ and two weeks. I don't know how these are going to hold up in the long run but I'm glad I bought the extended warranty.

* BOTTOM LINE is this monitor is great for what I paid, until these Korean's started showing up I was looking at 700+ plus for monitors this size, now the whole market is changing and even Dell is bringing down their 27 IPS's to compete. I recommend extended warranty and don't expect it to be top of the line for the price.

2 out of 5 eggsgood product, if you buy the extended warranty

Pros: Good for price, solid work and gaming monitor..

Cons: worked out of the box, 7 months later I have a teal blue vertical line, bout to shove it off my desk. always, always, always buy the extended warranty. stupid, stupid, stupid..figured it would work for a few years and by then I'd go bigger with better resolution..stupid gamble.

Other Thoughts: sometimes you get what you pay for, other times not so much. not sure if $25 bucks a month for one monitor im about to smash is worth it. look for my destruction vid on youtube..shotgun style.

1 out of 5 eggsThis monitor is garbage

Pros: Big
Good picture

Cons: Cheap (different than inexpensive)
Poor manufacturer support

Other Thoughts: This monitor lasted only a few months, just after the manufacturer warranty ran out. I got the fairly common white screen of death (google it). Its a cheap and inexpensive monitor, but basically a waste of money.
