Bought Feb 2007 - Today it's dead 2015 4/5/2015 8:49:29 AM

Pros: This thing has been through a lot with me... I use it every day for hours for the past 8 years. Never a dead pixel, never an issue. Till just yesterday when it started the typical dying monitor thing where you have to power it off and on many times till it finally stays on. Sad to see it go...

Cons: Absolutely nothing, this monitor was freaking awesome. So awesome that I felt that it deserved a review 8 years after I bought it.

Lasted 7 years 7/16/2014 1:04:48 AM

Pros: Thing worked flawlessly for a little over 7 years, no dead pixels and it still works even now but I have to turn it off and on like 7 times to get it to come out of sleep mode.

Cons: outdated now

Overall Review: back in the day this thing was a beast

IT WONT DIE 12/2/2013 2:08:50 PM

Pros: I bought this monitor is 2007 and it has been subject to countless hours of movies, gaming and basic computer use. I don't live on my pc but it gets used A LOT. I kept telling myself I would wait until it dies to replace but I don't see that happening. The picture still looks good and it has no dead pixels. For the money I paid I have 0 complaints.

Cons: Out of date as of 2013 (almost 2014).

Six years later 1/22/2013 3:58:00 PM

Pros: This monitor lasted me six years... That was six years full of gaming on mmo's, movie watching, anime watching, music production, web surfing.. countless hours of my life. I have to say the color on this monitor was amazing, and still was until its last day. It just recently passed away, so now I am looking for a nice 3d monitor aka 27inch asus or acer. I will miss chi mei as they no longer seem to be in business.. because this monitor was amazing.

Cons: It died.. it wasn't immortal.

Overall Review: ohh if I was a necromancer of PC parts, how I would bring you back to life dear monitor! I will miss you.. now it's time to move onto 3d gaming and movies :D

Great Monitors 1/6/2011 12:24:35 PM

Pros: Have 2 of these that have been running almost constantly for over 3 years. Do not do gaming but do watch HD tv on them and they do great. No problems and not 1 dead pixel after years of use.

Cons: None.

Complete Garbage 7/23/2008 2:02:10 PM

Pros: Cheap.

Cons: Screen quality is merely acceptable, but I suppose you get what you pay for.

Overall Review: We purchased four of these monitors just over a year ago. They were used for less than a week when one of them stopped properly syncing with the signal. It took over 8 weeks and hours on the phone with CHIMEI to get a replacement (which wasn't even the same color). When the replacement finally came, it powered off and stayed off within 5 minutes of being set up. Now another of the original 4 no longer powers on. That's 3 monitors out of 5 that are completely dead within the first year.

I'm astounded these have such a high rating.

Still great after 7 months 7/15/2008 4:44:32 AM

Pros: When I first installed this display, I was immediately impressed with the vibrant colors and crispness of the text, even at small fonts. I actually had to reduce the brightness somewhat. The controls are in the most convenient place I can think of - on the thin side panel where they are both convenient AND out of the way. There were, and are, no dead pixels, and contrary to some of the existing reviews, I don't see any significant bleeding from the bottom or top edges. Except for the brightness, which is a personal issue, no other adjustments were necessary. Last, but certainly not least, was the price.'s already competitive amount, plus a $10.00 promotion, plus a $30.00 mail-in rebate, brought it in at under $200!

Cons: There is no swivel capability, although the monitor can be tilted. Still, even this adjustment is limited - I estimate from -5 to +20 degrees. There is no vertical height adjustment, so one must be able to obtain the optimal viewing angle via the tilt. About one week ago, a thin violet vertical line appeared on the right side of the display, but it is intermittent, and usually disappears within 5 to 10 miinutes. It's not enough to lower the rating, but if it ever appears permanently, it will probably be an annoyance.

Overall Review: I want to respond to all those reviewers who were disappointed that powering off the monitor while in DVI mode caused the signal between it and the video card to be cut off, and that only a reboot would restore it. If you connect both the DVI and analog cables to the monitor from your video card, and set the multi-display selection to "clone" mode, the problem is eliminated. When you power back on, you will be in analog mode, but at least you can continue your work from where you left off.

7/12/2008 12:58:31 PM

Pros: I have had this monitor for just over 6 months now and I must say it was worth the money. I have had no problems no dead pixels no lines nothing.

Cons: Color is slightly skewed from the sides but other than that it is fine.

Overall Review: For the money this thing is top notch. I was weary of buying this because it was not "name brand" but it has been great and was well worth the money.
