I have bought three of these and am pleased with the value of this monitor. One Is used for desktop use, spreadsheets, taxes, photo archiving. Good price. Nice looking LCD. Analog and digital inputs. 1680x1050 resolution None Two different inputs "VGA and DV-I" is a nice feature ("HDMI" is only needed if the monitor has built in speakers). It works as it should.

I wanted to use this monitor in 1140x900 mode but could not get it to work on my computer setup. The monitor plays well in 1680x1050 mode. Buying a new computer monitor is a lot less painful than it used to be.

The following symptoms are normal with LCD monitor and do not indicate a problem.
Due to the nature of the fluorescent light, the screen may flicker during initial use. Turn off the Power Switch and then turn it on again to make sure the flicker disappears. You may find slightly uneven brightness on the screen depending on the desktop pattern you use. The LCD screen has effective pixels of 99.99% or more. It may include blemishes of 0.01% or less such as a missing pixel or a pixel lit all of the time. Due to the nature of the LCD screen, an afterimage of the previous screen may remain after switching the image, when the same image is displayed for hours. In this case, the screen is recovered slowly by changing the image or turning off the Power Switch for hours.

Quick Start Guide

In oder to optimize the best viewing position, you can adjust the tilt of the monitor by using both of your hands to hold the edges of the monitor as shown in the figure below. The monitor can be adjusted to 15 degrees up or 5 degrees down as indicated by arrow below.
Check first to make sure that the power cord you use is the correct type required for your area. This monitor has a universal power supply that allows operation in either 100/120V AC or 220/240 V AC voltage area. No user-adjustment is required. Plug one end of the power cord to the AC Inlet, plug another end to a proper AC outlet. For unit using at 120 V AC: Use a UL Listed Cord Set, Type SVT wire and plug rated 10 A/125 V. For unit using at 220/240 V AC (outside of U.S.): Use a Cord Set consisting of H05VV-F cord and plug rated 10 A, 250 V. The cord set should have the appropriate safety approvals for the country in which the equipment will be installed.


Avoid placing the monitor, or any other heavy object, on the power cord to avoid damage to the cable. Do not expose the monitor to rain, excessive moisture, or dust. Do not cover the ventilation slots or openings of the monitor. Always put the monitor in a place where there is adequate ventilation. Avoid placing the monitor against a bright background or where sunlight or other light sources may reflect on the face of the monitor. Place the monitor just below eye level. Handle with care when transporting the monitor. Refrain from giving shock or scratch to the screen, as screen is fragile.


Please carefully follow the below guidelines when cleaning the monitor. Always unplug the monitor before cleaning. Use a soft cloth to wipe the screen and cabinet front and sides.

Power saving

The monitor will be driven into Power Saving mode by the control signal from the display controller, as indicated by the amber-color power LED. State ON Power Saving Mode LED Light Blue Amber
The power saving states will be kept until a control signal has been detected or the keyboard or mouse is activated. The recovery time from Active OFF state back to ON state is around 3 seconds.
To make your installation easier, the monitor is able to Plug and Play with your system if your system also supports DDC protocol. The DDC (Display Data Channel) is a communication protocol through which the monitor automatically informs the host system about its capabilities, for example, supported resolutions and corresponding timing. The monitor supports DDC2B standard.

The only condition to store as a user mode is the new display information must have 1 KHz difference for horizontal frequency or 1 Hz for vertical frequency or the sync signal polarities are different from the default modes.
