Very good value for money. Any bigger (ie 20" +) and TFTs seem to get very expensive so a 19" one seemed to be the best buy.
Size - pretty self explanitory - takes up less room on desk. Also of course you can fit more on screen at once.
Looks nice and smart on my desk - silver is more smart in my opinion.
Very easy to set up, you just plug in, change your PC output resolution via 'display properites' and you're away - pust press the 'Auto' button and it sorts its self out - great!
Widescreen is great for watching films (1440x900 16:10) only get very small black bars if anything.
Also great for working on as it gives you more space for two pages side by side, or multiple programs open side by side etc - very useful.
Also good for gaming. I play quite a lot of games and getting the extra field of view is great - more natural. (Although note not all games support widescreen as standard, some just stretch the picture, some fine out of box but some do need a bit of tinkering to get to work properlly - see [...] for help)
Good response time - no noticable ghosting present
No DVI connection - only VGA input. DVI would be nice, but I guess that'd bump up the cost a bit.
Colour - As with most TFTs the colour reproduction isn't as quite good as on CRT monitors, however unless your a graphic designer or someone who has to have prefect colours then it isn't an issue. However the colours do change slightly when not viewed from straight on, eg white goes a little yellowy, and similar colours may become slightly indistinguishable, but again not a problem for most people.
Contrast - Sometimes when watching particularly dark scenes in films it can be hard to see properlly, but not too badlly.
Backlight leakage - Some people have commented on this before - it isn't that bad but if the screen is dark you can notice a bit - again not too bad.
No pan adjustment. Tilt is ok (unless want to tilt down lots for some reason).
Don't seem able to force 4:3 resolution as detected change and Auto adjusts to fill screen which looks bad.
OVERALL: A great value monitor for the vast majority of people (not much more than 4:3 17" TFT!) including all but the most eager of gamer or graphic designer, but if that's the case then you probablly know you want to stick with CRT anyway.
I hope this review helps.
I was not looking to spend too much money and this monitor ticked all the boxes.
My only concern was native support for the 1440x900 resolution from my laptop (IBM Thinkpad R52 with ATI Radeon x300 graphics card).
The monitor is well packaged and comes with both a European 2-pin power supply as well as a UK 3-pin power supply. There is a VGA lead (is that what you call it ?!) in the box.
The 'autodetect' configured the screen for 1024x768 - which is stretched and unusable. After I fiddled around in the Settings for my graphics card (Workspace Properties->Settings) and separated the control of the Monitor from the Laptop screen then 'hey presto' a whole load of additional resolutions, including the 'magic' 1440x900 appeared in the screen resolution slider).
Set at 1440x900 this monitor is a dream - what a bargain !
The TFT was easy to install, it had its own hardware identifier which means windows doesnt need the driver or programs to install it. I got an ATI radeon 9550 card and it runs at the native 1440x900 resolution at 60mhz. I tried to increase the refresh rate to the max 75mhz but it couldn't. I read the refresh rate doesnt really matter that much for a TFT.
1)Get XP to use cleartype for cleared font display.
2)Get some decent widescreen desktop pictures and screensavers. Huge desktop area, it feels like having two 17" montiors side by side resulting in massive display for movies and games which are in widescreen format. I tested it watching a DVD and it was jaw dropping.
2) Very bright and clear - colours and brightness can be changed either on monitor or on video card settings. I had no dead pixels in mine.
3) Excellent value for money. I did plan on getting the samsung 19inch widescreen with tv tuner but that was on sale.P>Cons :
1) no DVI connection - I knew this in advance but this is a bargain.
2) stand isn't very flexiable, you can tilt it but cant adjust the height.
I've had no dead pixels, response time is great, colours and brightness are good (with some tweaking of the settings) and it's just nice to use. Also, if you use image editing software like Photoshop on a regular basis this monitor is good for that as well as it gives you a lot more screen real estate to work with.
Not only that, but it also does a fantastic job when watching TV shows or DVDs as well, having that widescreen really does make a difference, and for the price it's a complete bargain. Can't recommend it enough.
