10 YEARS AND STILL GOING LIKE NEW

Pros: It's 10 years old. There's nothing wrong with the way it functions. Great for any casual user and gamers alike.

Cons: I can't find a reason to get rid of it and get a higher resolution monitor.

Other Thoughts: If only all electronics could be built like this. It's probably going to end up being a hand-me-down to my son.

Eight years and still going strong!!! (Original review 12/2/2008, updated 8/5/2017)

Pros: Huge. Very bright. Stable display.
My first review was back in 2008 when I bought this big guy. Eight years without a problem.

Cons: No vertical height adjustment. Settings buttons not easy to access on side. Menu a bit clunky. Will only handle a refresh rate of 60 Hz. Blacks not especially deep.

Other Thoughts: All in all, certainly worth the money. Seems well built, not cheesy looking. About the brightest screen I've ever seen. I don't play games so I can't speak for its gaming ability, but for programming it is great. Lots of real estate. So far, I can recommend this beast. I am not having any of the troubles others have written about (bleedthru, etc).

8+ Years and counting...

Pros: Long life. Large Screen. Low Cost

Cons: Runs warm

Other Thoughts: I bought this monitor in 2009 when building my own computer. It has had a great run thus far. I used it mostly for general purpose work and Photoshop/lightroom. Performed flawlessly. I recently upgraded to a couple of Dell u2515's so this one has now been converted into a photo frame complete with outer wood frame and old Mac mini. Comes on every evening for about 5 hours and continues to chug along nicely. I calibrate it once every couple of months and amazingly, it still within calibration specs including brightness & contrast.
Since this is a discontinued old model, this review if for my nostalgia and well deserved credit / praise for HannsG

8 years later and no reason to buy a newer monitor, plus 1,700 5 star reviews

Pros: Best and longest later computer related purchase I have ever made, been building computers since 2004.

Still Kick'en

Pros: Once you get the quirks out of the way it's a solid monitor.
It's August 17, 2016 and I'm still on it.
Almost 9 years and it's still going.

Cons: Required 1 RMA for R82-R83 capacitor replacement (Well known issue after a few years)
Required 1 out of warranty repair I did myself (Replaced 6 dry capacitors on power board)

Other Thoughts: As I just built a new system recently I was looking to upgrade to a new modern monitor and was looking at when I purchased this one. It was in November of 2008 so this thing has been solid for over 8 years. Because of the heat generated from this monitor those capacitors dry out and cause most of the issues people were having. If you replace them as you can see it can extend the life of the monitor. I'm using it to write this now but it's getting long in the tooth for gaming is why I'm looking now but since this has been a solid unit I will be looking at other Hanns-G in the future.

RIP - it gave a good 6 years of daily service!

Pros: this monitor performed just fine, purchased Nov. 2009, monitor was manufactured Sept 2009 so it was plenty "fresh"

Cons: monitor suddenly stopped working Feb. 2016 just over 6 years, it went "white-screen" and that was that, I did test it on another computer, different cables, video, etc.

Other Thoughts: I only wrote this review since I was curious about how long ago I did buy it and Newegg had the order history. I would consider another Hanns-G if one showed up during my current research for a replacement

Awesome

Pros: I think I wrote a review for this in 2012. I will reiterate what I said then... this has been a solid monitor. I bought it because I needed some BLING for a LAN party and couldn't afford to rebuild my computer at the time. I've had this since 2009 with NO problems.

Cons: NONE
