      Good monitor at the time, now dated, only recommended if picking it up cheap

      I've owned this monitor for nearly five years now. At the time it was a brilliant monitor, capable of resolutions of up to 1440 x 990. Whilst being relatively small at only 19" this was still a high performing monitor at a cheap price. For those of you who are less tech savvy 1440 x 990 is the number of pixels that can be displayed on the screen at once. To put it into context, High Definition is classed as 1920 x 1080. So where does that leave us now? It's not high definition, not a million miles away either but still not high definition.

      I've used it to play games, and have always been impressed with the quality of the graphics. In the five years I have owned it there aren't any dead pixels, and it still looks good for its age. The colour and brightness of the monitor is good quality, and the buttons for adjusting screen size etc on the monitor itself are straight forward and easy to use. Installation is a doddle, plug it into the mains and the back of the computer. Although to be fair most monitors are the same so it doesn't get extra points for that.

      The downsides are it doesn't support blu-rays, and won't be high definition for playing games. You don't even get the option of watching blu-rays at a lower resolution, the computer flat out refuses to play them. As far as games go it's still a brilliant monitor, but I feel not supporting blu-rays holds it back enough now that I can't recommend this monitor in this day and age. For a hundred quid a decent monitor can be bought that supports HD. If on the other hand you get the option of picking this monitor up cheap and watching blu-rays isn't a priority then its a great little monitor
