"Excellent monitor"5.0 starson by KosakiHook
Pros: Image quality, 4 USB ports, adjustability, small footprint
Cons: Can't think of any
Summary: Got this used very cheap. I use it as a 2nd monitor connected to my Compaq 2195us in dual monitor mode. It's great to have the extra screen space to help with productivity. This is my first LCD monitor.
Text is sharp, image is excellent. I haven't really tried video except Hulu. However, I get some weird artifact that I think is a function of the video card. I haven't tried connecting this to desktop.
I like the feature of 4 USB ports. My laptop only has 2, but this monitor increases the # of usable ports to 5 (1 free on laptop and 4 on monitor).
The other great feature is the ability to adjust the screen position. I can raise the height, tilt the screen, and swivel. The base is sturdy and I'm not experiencing any wobble. The monitor can be removed from the base and mounted (VESA compatible).
With the limited space on my desk, I like how this has a small footprint.
This monitor has a 5:4 format, and these are probably going by the wayside now that widescreen has taken over.
