The max resolution doesnt seem to high for a monitor that pricy.

nice response time for the price (8ms) but its kindaugly, other than that not a bad price either for a 8ms and a brand name too.

no you might shoot for a tad lower response time 8ms is good but it only goes to 125 fps

quite expensive for only 1280 x 1024 max resolution, and a max of 85Hz refresh rate. But then again it has 8ms response time and it's 19".

Yeah, it's an alright monitor. Not too bad... For the money, it's ok. There are better ones, but for that price, yeah, it's gopod enough.

personally I'd go for this one since it has more contrast ratio and dvi inputs for less $$$
