I received the case, hooked everything up, it wouldn't power up. Then I checked to make sure everything was connected correctly and tried to power it up again. Again nothing happened. So I unplugged everything one by one and replugged it in to make sure it was securely in and tried to power up again. Again nothing. So I tried one more time and the power supply went up in smoke. Laughing

First time that's happened to me. It may be too much trouble to have it replaced and I may just buy a new one Razz

Well, my 19" tube monitor is crapping out, it blinks to 1/3 of the screen and it takes a few degaussings to get it back to full screen but it doesn't last long so I ordered a 22" lcd. It should be here monday or tuesday What a Face

My monitor is on sale again... $189 and free shipping... to your door in 3 days. That's $10 more than I paid but it's worth it and $100 less than you'd find in a store.

hmm... tempting!

I love the looks of that. I usually have a bunch of stuff open at once, would make things much easier with more room.

You'd love it. I have to take my glasses off now to use it sitting normal, it's like lasik surgery Razz

My review:

PeaceMarauder
Tech Level: average
Ownership: 1 week to 1 month
This user purchased this item from Newegg


9/11/2008 7:36:13 AM

Rating + 5 Wow!

Pros: It was on sale. It had free shipping. No dead pixels. HUGE! Widescreen. It has speakers? Easy to hook up and adjust. Crisp clean bright pic. Newegg always seems to have exactly what I need when I need it on sale. I've saved enough to pay for the 2 computers I've built. Newegg ROCKS!

Cons: If you can call it a con.. it wasn't free and didn't come with a dvi cable. It has speakers.

Other Thoughts: I feel like I got lasik surgery on my eyes. I got this to replace a dying, now dead 19" crt. Even running the crt's on this 512mb 128 bit gddr 2 vid card this monitor is much brighter and cleaner. Makes watching a dvd a pleasure. I use the space saved behind this screen as a feeding area for my cats Razz Unless you use this monitor as a room light, you'll need to turn down the brightness Razz


I see it's $179 now and $20 shipping... still way cheaper than a store and only 3 days to your door from ship date, usually a day to process.

Well, I was down to 2 monitors for 5 computers, one of my 17" tube monitors blew up. I was looking on newegg at 19" lcd monitors.. $119. Then, when I went to buy, I thought I'd look up the 22 I bought. It was on sale again for $160! I bought it Laughing




The monitor that blew up. It's a 2000 model, but my Gateway 2000 model 17 is fine, thankfully Cool

It's a Dell Inspiron.. I spose it's what you call a netbook but has a full version of XP on it. Atom processor and flash 'hard drive' C. It's only 10gb though so it's pretty much worthless Laughing
