I feel I must have been one of the lucky ones, with the 2 previous reviews of this PC monitor both being negative, but I will share my experiences of using this for the past 2 years.
I bought this item from Ebuyer at a ridiculous price of £105 including delivery. I had never heard of yuraku before but thought I would take a gamble and try and get myself a bargin.
The screen is exactly as pictured above, although the model is actually a much deeper black than the grey shade shown above. It just looks like a standard lcd in a very decent size of 22 inches (21.6 inches exactly) and a ratio of 16:10. No stylish glass effects or bezels here! The screen itself is a matte texture so can be a bit of a pain if there is direct sunlight on the screen.
I work as a 3d graphic designer, so I was quite reluctant to buy a cheap monitor after previous negative experiences, but my budget didn't leave me with a lot of choice. This screen has had absolutely no problems the entire time I've had it, including no dead or stuck pixels. Running at native 1680x1050 resolution the screen is extremely crisp and even with the precision required for my work allowed me to work daily without any eye strain. Needless to say, I was impressed.
A couple of downsides though, the built in speakers are terrible. You will have to buy an external replacement if you intend to use this monitor.
Additonally the connectivity is limited to only a single VGA port, no HMDI, no DVI. Quite outdated.
Same problem as above. Nice, permanently green pixels on screen to constantly annoy you. Very blurry as well.One to avoid.
I purchased this monitor for £126 delivered in Feb 2008. It is a nice looking monitor. But it had 3 bright green pixels permanently on at the top center of the screen - so it's a gamble to see if you get a fully functioning monitor. The manufacturer's Ts & Cs state that 5 cells must be permanently on (or off), or a total of 8(!) faulty cells must be present for it to be deemed faulty! Scandalous! But typical...
