4 out of 5 eggsGood!

Pros: Sharp,clear text,pictures. No dead pixels, No backlight bleeding. Round adjust buttons much better than flat buttons like the 720N. Comes with both cables plus power cord.

Cons: Took me a while to adjust brightness and color tones. Windows default colors like Grey had reddish-brown tint. Stand is a little loose from side to side.

5 out of 5 eggsAwsome Monitor!

Pros: Strong brightness, no dead pixels. All the adjustments you will ever need, very sturdy base. Power transformer is built into the monitor. Tilt feature is cool!

Cons: none.

Other Thoughts: I’ve owned for about a year or so and have had absolutely no problems at all. I use them in a dual monitor setup with the left one tilted vertical to surf the web on (it makes it much easier to view the web pages and work on word documents and such). On my right monitor I run my email and ect.. Perfect setup for my purposes. I also use for video editing and they work great!

2 out of 5 eggsNot For Portrait Mode

Pros: Nice look, great adjustments on the stand, very sharp.

Cons: This monintor is no good in portrait mode. The visibility range is only a few degrees before the colors and darkness get severely distorted. When in portrait mode it can only be viewed from the right side.

Other Thoughts: I bought this monitor as a second monitor to go alongside a 24" widescreen for web surfing and toolbars when using autocad. It will work okay for that but not nearly what I was expecting based on the specs and price

5 out of 5 eggsBright but still excellent

Pros: A very bright monitor that has much to offer. It's easy to use; has intuitive controls; dual input; adjustable in almost every (pivot, rotate, angle, height); and features a nice and thin bezel - simple but elegant. This is a pretty sweet LCD overall. DVD movies look great on it as much as text. The whites are truly white, unlike my other panel where they are more like antique white. Maybe it could be improved, but you would pay a whole lot more for it. AND no bad pixels!

Cons: The height adjustment is misleading: the lowest setting is still about 5 inches above the base. This isn't much of an issue if the monitor is not on a shelf, otherwise it may be a little bit too high for viewing.

Other Thoughts: I sometimes wonder if monitor manufacturers incorrectly incorporate designs for office LCD panels into home versions; offices typically have super bright FL lights that require super bright panels, whereas homes usually have ordinary incandescent bulbs which aren't as bright.

1 out of 5 eggsToo Bright!!!!!!

Pros: The stand, screen size.

Cons: Way too bright even after trying many attempts to adjust. Sent back to NewEgg after having it for 24 hours.

4 out of 5 eggsGood monitor

Pros: Good monitor, average colors for an lcd. Watched movies on it, no ghosting, fast output. Very stable and sturdy, has a heavy base. Upgraded from my old crt 19" kds monitor.

Cons: The monitor is very bright. I lowered the contrast to 0 and brightness to 0 and it's still somewhat bright. During the day its doesn't seem so bright at these numbers (of contrast/brightness), but at night it's bright especially without desk light on. Maybe all the lcd monitor function similarly...I think if I had to make a second choice I would have bought monitor that is less bright.

Other Thoughts: Thank You NewEgg good prices fast shipment.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: The monitor is definately a good buy; it has height, rotation, pivot and swivel adjustments to the stand, Both analog *and* digital inputs, as well as the cables to use either one. The monitor itself will automatically detect which input you're using unless you tell it specifically not to.

The colors are very vibrant, and can each be adjusted individually from the monitors control panel. The contrast is phenomenal, and unlike the person below, there are no problems with the colors nor brightness nor contrast as long as you know how to set them (try around 60 for the brightness and 25 for the contrast). As a reminder, the algorithmns that the monitor uses can only go so far, so you should be fine-tuning with the video cards gamma correction.

There is also a built in sharpness control, so those not using windows still have some hope of reading plain text, if the option to change the rendering is not available.

Cons: Just one little thing. Like mentioned before, the monitor has swivel, tilt, height and rotation adjustments. The only problem is that the rotation only works counter-clockwise from the standard position.

Other Thoughts: To first time owners of LCD screens: be warned that they run hotter than CRT screens, so no, there is nothing wrong with it. You also don't need to degauss them after they have been on for some amount of time.
