"A very good buy"4.5 starson by Curt O.
Pros: Very inexpensive, no dead pixels, great resolution
Cons: The speakers aren't great but who buys a monitor for the speakers?
Summary: Overall, this is the best monitor I have bought. I got mine off staples for 170$ on a one day sale. Its native 1400x900 is great for watching movies and media. I acually own the AL1917W but they are very similar in mostly every aspect. The only trouble I encountered while setting this monitor up was I had to download a driver. I couldn't find it but it still looks great in 1280x1024. Hook up some external speakers and you'll love your setup.
