      I wouldn't bother

      A friend of mine got this monitor in around 2003/04 after seeing how good my 19" one (just reviewed) was. He enjoyed it for many years until he sold his old PC to clear out some space (as he had a new flat screen TFT) and so I bought the bunch of components off him, including this monitor.

      I was thinking wow, my 19" Dell with a curved glass screen is fantastic, this can only be better with a flat front screen.

      I plugged it in and within 10 mins it was put in the garage as a spare and myoriginal curved screen was put back on.

      Whilethis is a good quality monitor, with a high resolution, I feel it is no way anywhere superior to the previous curved glass model. (again s mentioned in previous review)

      This monitor does give a sharp picture at a high resolution, but its footprint on the desk is even larger, which means its pretty big. The monitor is very clunky, always making a clunky noise when turned on, refreshing, etc. I could seea constan flicker in the background, making me feel it cold only just handle the 160x1200 resolution, or certainly not at the refresh rate I was using.

      I currently leant this to a client to use with their new Small Business Server while we set it up and tweak it to their needs (so purely as a loaner as they don;t need to buy a Monitor for that PC), and still there using it often now, i feel there is a flicker, it just doesn;t give me the quality I woudl expect from a CRT, it doesn;t even give me the quality I woudl expect from a budget LCD.

      I would not advise buying this monitor, get it free, use in an emergency, yes, but I wouldn;t advise getting this for proper use.
