"Good for gaming and basic productivity"4.0 starson by uncledavid218
Pros: No obvious ghosting, looks good, big and bright
Cons: One dead pixel
Summary: I don't understand why CNET gave this monitor an average rating. I have a $2000 gaming machine that I built myself, but used a 17" CRT for the longest time. When my parents bought themselves a new dual-core Gateway, this monitor was included with the bundle. They already had an LG Slimline. Needless to say, I took this for nothing and it's very good. I was skeptical about the 16ms response time, but even if you look closely ghosting isn't a problem. Very good, only con is 1 dead pixel, but out of 1.3 million, thats not too bad.
