Pros Good brightness if set to maximum level
Good resolution to use as secondary display
Supports playing 720p
Cons Thick frame
Summary If you find a screen like this below $30 or 30€ it is worth it, the resolution is still good and it has a compact base, which allows you to fit it in a small desk as a secondary display. Also nice to connect to a laptop, but nowadays (2013) it is only good as a secondary display.
Pros it was free, i found it at the dump, it's worked for two years since
Cons a color glitch once in a while, nothing a good smack on the side of the monitor doesn't fix
Summary if you find this at the dump for free, i recommend taking it.
