1-0 out of 5 stars Extremely poor quality
I purchased this monitor with a HP desktop on the 3rd of May 2004. 13 months and 1 day later, on the 4th of June 2005, the monitor screen would go black, but the power button would remain lit. To get it to work again, you would have to turn it off and turn it back on. However, this problem re-occurs again around 10 seconds later, rendering the monitor useless. Designed obsolescene. Isn't it fantastic?

1-0 out of 5 stars good monitor for those who like seeing black
Great. I've had this monitor for just about a year and suddenly thescreen goes black for no reason.Press the button and the screen will work for another 8 seconds, then go black suddenly. Press it off, press it on, it'll work for 8 seconds.

Apparently from forums i have read, a vast majority of other owners have this monitor problem, and unfortunately there's no class action suit to recall the monitor.After a year of any of their products, HP wants nothing to do with you. Right now i'm using my faithful old CRT monitor too, the very thing i tried to replace.

Ah well, how utilitarian of me to support big business at the expense of myself.

5-0 out of 5 stars Convenient, Adjustable, Great Picture
This monitor powers its own speakers, which is nice because it gives you an extra outlet.It comes mounted on a light but sturdy base that can be adjusted down to the level of the desk and up to about six inches.A cd is included, but installing the software was not necessary on any of the three PC's I hooked the monitor up to.It works perfectly if you just plug it in.Images are crisp and vivid, and the adjustable base makes it even easier to tuck this already flat monitor into a corner to save desk space when you are not using it.Very highly recommended.I bought it in a store a long time ago when it cost a lot more money than it does now on Amazon.com, and I still have no regrets.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Monitor!
After our 2 Viewsonics died on us (would shut off suddenly and not turn on again), we purchased 2 of these. We've used them now every day for over a year and they're performing as well as on day one. I will buy a 15" version for my mom.

The speakers are very convenient, however if you primarily use your computer to listen to music or watch movies, then I'd recommend replacing them with something a little more high end.

4-0 out of 5 stars it can be a good deal
if you get a good price it works well enough; its a good size the harman/kardon speakers are a nice tuch (thay need a sub though) i dbout the responce time is less then 20 ms though that is not a problem for me some people may rather die then experince that. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Very Pleased!
I am not a techie - just an avid internet nut, so I'm not going to have much to say from a technical standpoint. Anyway, my monitor at work started getting dimmer and dimmer causing my eyes to become very tired very quickly.I rushed to get a new monitor and found this great value at Amazon. Within three hours of purchasing this item, Amazon emailed me my tracking number!Now three days later I am enjoying this new (bright!) monitor.It was very easy to set up and adjust. On top of the great price, the free shipping was a nice plus! Thanks Amazon, for another great and value-filled shopping experience!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great monitor, great price!!!!
My Gateway monitor finally took a dive, I needed a quick replacement and found this monitor, It is truly a great deal, great picture, and it arrived on my doorstep within 48 hours of placing the order, I chose the Super Saver Shipping option.
I highly recommend this monitor.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Monitor!
I have been scouring the Internet for the past few days looking for an inexpensive monitor to replace my old 15-inch Trinitron monitor from Gateway until I came across this little gem.

I am very impressed with the picture and quality of this monitor.It is just big enough to use with a screen resolution of 1280x1024 and works fine with both Windows and Linux.This monitor has plenty of geometry and color controls and delivers fantastic contrast for a CRT monitor.I was a bit hesitant to purchase a flat-screen monitor for this price; in some of my shopping I found flat-screen monitors advertised for the same price when they were just a convex (curved) screen behind flat glass casing.

For the price, you cannot get a better deal.I used the Super-Saver Shipping option and it was at my doorstep in less than 24 hours from when I placed the order.The KDS XtremeFlat XF-7i 17" CRT Monitor is truly flat and makes any viewing angle comfortable; it is very easy on both the eyes and the wallet.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Solid Choice
I bought this monitor to use with a second computer in my home.So far, this monitor has exceeded my expectations.The view has been more than adequate for surfing the internet and using general office applications.I wanted to see just how good the picture quality can be.So, I installed a Sony DVD player on the computer so that I can test how the monitor will look playing a movie.I watched The Return of the King on this system and was impressed by the picture quality.Take the fact that the graphics card on this system is geared towards the business user and you will even be more impressed with the monitor.

My primary computer system has a 19-inch Trinitron monitor.And honestly, if I am just surfing the internet and sending e-mail, this 17-inch KDS is just as nice to look at.The Trinitron monitor does show more saturated colors when watching DVDs and such, but that could be due to that system's superior graphics card.

I can find no fault or shortcomings in this 17-inch KDS monitor.I can recommend this unit, with no reservations, to anyone looking for a 17-inch flat screen CRT.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Deal!
The KDS Xtreme Xf-7I Flat Monitor is terrific. Great picture, great price and with no shipping charge, an unbeatable deal. Very glad to have it. Highly recommend. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Happy since July 13, 2004
I bought this monitor almost a year ago and it is still going strong. I am the computer tech for a non-profit agency that provides a computer lab for the public. I was so happy with the 793DF that I recommended my company replace their old monitors at work with this same model.
We had one bad monitor (out of 9 total) shipped to us but Amazon had a replacement there within a week, no problem!
They have been in service for over 6 months now with a great picture on all of them. They are used by the general public daily and go through the normal use/abuse that people put them through.
I bought it because the old monitor at work that has been on my desktop is a Samsung and after 6 years is still ticking!
Samsung Rocks!
Thanks Amazon!

1-0 out of 5 stars This Monitor Is NOT a Good Purchase!
I purchased this monitor in Dec. 2004 from a Amazon, which did it's job well. Delivery was on time. I put the monitor to use and kept my old monitor which was 10 years old in a box. I used this new monitor, but after about a month it seemed that I was able to discern the refreshing of the screen. Then in April of 2005, the screen of the new monitor began to have horizonal lines in brown flashing across the screen, a few, then more, then it overwhelmed my screen. I called the Samsung tech help. I was told to clean all of my pc's cards, clean the RAM, take my pc all apart. I did clean out the inside of the pc with air, but didn't do the other. I then turned the pc on, and within 4 hours the lines began to reappear. Then the entire screen went into a horizonal blurring of lines. I shut it down, quickly. And put my old monitor back in service, to make sure that it wasn't the new monitor. Upon restarting my pc, I noticed that my RAM was missing 64 MB's...a stick had burn up! I had to pull the bad stick of RAM out. And then reboot. I now have less RAM, and I'm using my old monitor now for about 10 days with no PROBLEM!

Samsung tech gave me an RMA and I had to put $150 onto my credit card so that they would send me a, what I thought should be a new replacement monitor. Now, sitting on my table is the bad monitor in the box that they sent the replacement monitor in, the GREEN Label in place so that they will accept it back! And on the box was the words: REFURBISHED! They sent me a refurb monitor that has a mfr date of July '04 on it!!!! I'm afraid to even hook it up! I feel that I've been swindled! I am using my old monitor and the replacement unit will become a dust collector. If I hook up the refurb it will probably burn up my pc, my office and my business! To much to risk!

I suppose the old addage, if it ain't broke don't fix it should have been adhered to by me.

I'm out my purchase price for the monitor, I had to pay the shipping back to Samsung of the bad monitor to the tune of $30! I will have to hope that they don't run off with the credit card $150 as well, but if they do, I would be out more than $350!!!

Bad service from Samsung all around.

I will never, ever purchase anything with that name on it! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A decent monitor for ordinary user
If the monitor is e773c, it is not that bad as the the previous review stated. In fact, if you go to dell.com you will find this monitor is still on sale. I bought this monitor with my dell PC and it works great as it should. You DO NOT need to resize it every time. It has richer color than a LCD monitor as all CRT monitors do. Of course, you always get what you paid for. But for the price and performance, I will give it 5 stars.

2-0 out of 5 stars dell 17inch monitor
I was very dissapointed with the style and appearance of this item and would like to return it,but did not because it is to heavy for me to lug around, and I did not save the packaging. This is a very old monitor, the color is dark, it has to be resized each time I sign on. I emailed the seller for tech support and got no response as yet. There was no manual or any written help included in the packaging.I would rather have spent the money on a newer model. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars I can't believe it.
I haven't actually used the monitor yet. It's a gift, but I have the free super saver shipping with this and I received it overnight!!!!!!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great monitor, great price
I purchased this monitor for my father to compliment an old notebook computer with a dying 12 inch screen.Basically, I was looking for an inexpensive but quality monitor.

I was highly impressed by the quality of the picture produced by this monitor.It is not only an improvement on the notebook's dying flat panel, but it is a very crisp, refreshing interface.

The color reproduction is execellent.The 85 Hz refresh speed is very easy on the eyes (I'm using it at XGA resolution).The visibility from oblique angles is superior to many other monitors I have used.My little sister now uses this monitor to view and edit all the pictures from her digital camera.

The monitor "remembers" its internal settings for specific video modes.This is very useful if you might use it at different resolutions - when the computer attached starts the monitor in a video mode for which the user previously made adjustments to the monitor, the monitor remembers those adjustments and applies them.Thus, you can change resolutions without having to change the monitor internal settings every time.

It seems if the "width" of the usable pixels area is stretched too much that more of the "stretching" is applied near the borders (right and left edges, less than 3/4 inch) than in the center.This can cause an appearance of on screen text being spaced more widely toward the edges of the monitor.I consider this problem minor, because the image is still clear and crisp in these areas.

As another reviewer mentioned, there was no floppy diskette with drivers in the box.This was not a major problem.Many generic drivers in any version of Windows can control this monitor.However the KDS driver is available for download on the KDS website and it is relatively simple to find it there.

Now this is not a "professional" monitor, but I am highly impressed with the quality I received for this price.If you are seeking a budget monitor, I can recommend this KDS monitor strongly.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Value, Good Desktop Resolution
For the price that the KDS XF-7BK Xtreme Flat 17" CRT Monitor is at it's a great buy. My monitor shipped in only 2 days using Super Shipper. The manual was a bit too thin for my tastes but setting a monitor up is easy without it. You'll have to go to KDS's site to get drivers and Color Management if you're really into video quality. The controls are simple and the onscreen display is similar to nearly every other CRT monitor. The image is clear and crisp at 32 bit color and 1024 x 768 resoltion. The monitor supports up to 1280 x 1024 but I never run it any higher on my desktop than 1152 x 864. If you want to run it at 1152 x 864, turn up the refresh rate to 70 Hz. Your eyes will thank you and you'll like the extra desktop space. I do run some slower turn based and strategy games at 1280 x 1024 without any problems.

4-0 out of 5 stars For the money, you can't go wrong!
I bought this monitor for the price, and I am very impressed with the picture quality. This monitor is a huge improvement compared to my old monitor. The picture is bright and crisp.Also to let you know, this is a plug-n-go monitor.It does not require any drivers if you are an XP user.

1-0 out of 5 stars Buyer Beware!
This monitor, like the KDS monitor I bought 3 years prior, becomes too bright after approximately one year. Adjusting the brightness does not help. My NEC monitor which I have had for more than 6 years has lasted longer than two of these KDS monitors. If you can afford it, buy a better monitor.

I will not buy another KDS. ... Read more

Super-high resolution, surround-sound speaker quality! Fun, easy-to-use screen display controls. No-frills installation.

The JBL Platinum speakers deliver syphonic music as if you're in the orchestra hall. And the built-in microphones make PC-phone and PC-PC live voice chat communications a simple reality.

Theres no doubt about it, this monitor sucks.
It's been giving me trouble ever since I bought it.
I sent it back but never got my money!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Monitor, Great Value
Besides its cool looks, the Compaq MV740 offers great graphics and sound.The JBL speakers are crisp and they are easily adjusted.Picture quality is excellent; I have a DVD player and movies look as good as they do on a TV screen.The 17" screen (15.9: VIA) is perfect for most users; if you need a bigger screen, you're probably a graphic artist (and then you'd have a Mac anyway!).I have the video cam attachment, which is a blast.You can send video messages with sound and still pictures as e-mail attachments.The software for the cam is easy to load and easy to figure out.You'll be sending mini movies the day you plug it in.All in all, a great mid-level monitor that will meet the needs of most home users. ...

Amazon.com Review

The ViewSonic E771 is a 17-inch monitor (16 inches viewable) that'scompatible with both Mac and PC platforms. Well suited for home and office,you'll have it out of the box and up and running in five minutes or less. Thetilt/swivel base easily affixes to the bottom of the monitor, allowing theviewing angle to be adjusted for optimum ease. (As with most monitors of thissize and resolution, sitting at an 18-inch distance from the screen isrecommended for the best viewing conditions.)

The operation of this monitor isfairly standard, and for the most part will only require turning the unit on oroff. However, a menu button displays onscreen controls to alter and finessebrightness, contrast, vertical and horizontal position and size, and moiré anddegauss, as well as allowing corrections to any geometric distortion and thecolor temperature. A recall button quickly returns whatever changes were madeback to the company's default settings, which we found to be the best forregular usage.

The operating manual is as brief as it should be for such astraightforward unit. The menu options are labeled and defined, while anadditional troubleshooting guide is an easy-to-read page that should solve mostcommon predicaments. The monitor carries a warranty with three years ofprotection. This is a solid model, worthy of professionals and families alike.--David Greenberger

Pros:

  • Simple design and sturdy construction
  • Easy and fast to set up

Cons:

  • May be deeper than a workspace allows

1-0 out of 5 stars Don't buy it if you can
I bought three Viewsonic monitors over the past three years(PS790, GS790-2, and E771), and man, what a huge mistake! They are all dead now while ten-year old Dell monitors are still kicking.

Don't expect it to last long, if you buy one. I will never ever buy any Viewsonic brand in my life time !

4-0 out of 5 stars Reliable monitor from a reliable company.
The ViewSonic E771 has been with me through college using two different computer systems. As a Computer Science major, it has been through a lot of use. The picture is crisp, colorful, and bright.

At about two years into its life, it started malfunctioning. The monitor was caught in an odd resolution. I called ViewSonic, and without any hassle they had me send it in. They sent me back a new one in no time, even though I had no receipts or original packaging.

As a basic 17 inch monitor with no frills or extras, the E771 does a great job. I definitely recommend this monitor along with any ViewSonic monitor. ViewSonic is a very trustworthy company that stands behind its products.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great value, but not the best monitor out there
This monitor is great for day to day usage of just internet browsing and checking email and such.It goes for a great price and is easy to set upwith a nice picture.I did have a problem with it before and had to returnit to Viewsonic, however I was given a replacement monitor at a Viewsoniclocation in my city for no charge right on the spot without having to payshipping charges back and forth to California or such.If you're intogaming I'd reccomend spending the extra bucks for a better monitor howeverthis is just great value if you can't afford anything better.

5-0 out of 5 stars LOOKS GOOD TO ME!
I recommend this monitor for anyone that can't decide what to get because of it's well-rounded features.Personally, I am more concerned about imagequality than size.When I looked at the slew of monitors that were offeredat the store, this one seemed to have the clearest looking images.It'salso not too big or too small, so it's a decent "first monitor"as well.I work at an engineering firm, and we have used Viewsonicmonitors religiously with little or no problems.The USB hub is extremelyuseful if you have the right drivers for it.It eliminates some of thewire cluttering in the back of the pc, plus you don't have to reach backthere as much anymore.The on-screen menu is easier to use than most TVmenu's.This product has been running over a year for now me with noproblems.Hope that says something.

3-0 out of 5 stars OK
I chose this monitor because of the brand and its price (I got a huge discount). Really cannot compare to my old Sony vivitron 15" (.26 dpi) Monitor but,hey, the price is much better and I get a bigger view.

Hereare things I do not like:

The monitor weight is lighter than the othersbut it is quite bulky, because of thick edges around the screen, consumedmore desk area.

The screen is not really flat, so the display area is alittle distort (not really square). This has been compensated by adding alot of buttons for you to adjust (i.e. pincushion, pinbalance). It ishowever cannot be adjusted to a perfect square.

It took me a while tofigured out how the attach the base to the monitor, there is no explanationin the manual.

My full screen DVD movies is no longer playing "fullscreen", I think because of the display area, leaving some blackedges. Picture quality is ok, better than watching a 14" TV.

If youare looking for a nice graphic with same features, better wait, look aroundand add $100 more for the 19" and 0.26 dot pitch monitor. This monitoris just ok for me, for now. ... Read more

I bought this monitor through eBay and I'm pleasantly surprised with it. It has a large viewing area (within reason), handles 3D games and graphics, and has a very easy to use swivel underneath, which to me is a ++.Most monitors that I have used have been very hard to adjust and move, but this one moves VERY easily, and has a wide range of movement.I bought my own Benwin speakers, but as some HP monitors usually do, it comes with speakers slots in the side of it.I can't think of anything that I don't like about this monitor?I prefer a CRT to a LCD anyday because of clarity of picture, so I highly recommend this one. ...

This is the best monitor i have ever had. My last one was a cheap proview monitor where you could see the masking and the one before that was a cheap little 15 inch monitor. I love this monitor except that when you change resolutions there is a clicking sound. This can be annoying in videogames where people play at different resolutions like in the total war games where the turn based and real time based parts of the game are in different resolutions and everytime the resolution changes there is a clicking sound. ...

If your a hardcore graph-x designer and need a hassle free, well ventilated monitor that has excellent refresh rates, look no further than the XF-7t. This monitor is long and heavy, but hey your not designing monitor cases!! As far as quality, i couldn't find a better CRT with such a fine horizontal Dot pitch(.22mm!!). Your graph-x will kick ass!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great picture Quality...
After having a flat panel monitor LCD that I really liked and selling it, I was hesitant to buy a Flat CRT (Cathode Ray Tube) Monitor. However, after having it for about a week now, I can say it is the finest monitor I have ever owned. It is bright, vibrant and does not distort or anything around the end's. Oh, and about what the person wrote below about it being huge, well no kidding, its a CRT monitor with a flat glass screen, not an LCD screen. There is a difference, so if you are buying this, remember, its like the old monitors everyone owned, but has a flat glass screen to get rid of the distortions. I personally would recommend this monitor, as I love it now. Oh by the way, I use it for 3d animation and programming. It works great.

5-0 out of 5 stars A nice monitor for the money
Remember, this monitor has a *flat* screen, not a *thin* screen.It is just as large as a normal CRT monitor.

That being said, the picture quality is excellent.I don't think you can expect any more for the price.

2-0 out of 5 stars They should re-name this monitor the Hunchback
I don't know how they can get away with calling this a flat monitor, it had a huge lump in thw back that makes it 2-3 times as thick as every other Flat monitor out there. Might as well buy a tube monitor and save the money, the desk space savings is not that great.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great monitor, 3 year warranty!
OK, it is huge, I admit.But tucked into the allotted cubby hole on my computer desk it is not that noticeably monstrous.If you are looking for a space saver, look elsewhere.Having said that, the resolution and look is beautiful.The difference of the flat screen is truly noticeable and easy on the eyes.For the price, with a 3 year parts & labor guarantee and free shipping-- throw in a coupon (or not) and you've got a deal that can't be beat with a stick.If you have no concern about space, don't hesitate to consider the XF-7T. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Cheap, Sharp and Reliable
After seeing the first 775e that I got in (just because it was cheap), I was very impressed with the sharpness. I have a Mac with a dual-monitor setup (one of the few benefits of owning a Mac, IMHO), and when the 775e was side by side with my old Apple monitor, the difference was astounding. Later, a Nokia replaced the Apple monitor and the difference was not as apparent, but the 775e still had a definite edge.

Since that time (almost two years later), I've acquired 2-3 dozen more 775e's for myself, my office and other people on my island. So far, none have been DOA and none have died in use (except one that got rained on when a typhoon blew away my roof).

After reading the other reviews, the only "neg" comment that I've found to be true is that sometimes it's tough (or impossible) to get the the edges of the display area perfectly horizontal/vertical/straight. But because this isn't a big deal for me or my buyers, I'm still giving it five stars because of the sharpness and low price.

5-0 out of 5 stars I have had this monitor for over two years with no prolems.
I have had this monitor for over two years with no problems, I also have an Envision LCD TV which I use at home, it is simply awsome, and both are working perfectly and to my expectations. The remote for the LCD TV actually stopped working, and I e-mailed Envision, they shipped me out a new remote, no questions asked at no charge. The LCD is over two years old, I offered to pay for the remote, and the shipping and was told not to worry about it. It is one of the best customer service experiences I have ever had. TO THOSE OF YOU HAVEING PROBLEMS WITH THIS MONITOR I SUGGEST YOU CALL ENVISION, I AM CONFIDENT THEY WILL TAKE CARE OF THE PROBLEM AND MAKE IT RIGHT.

2-0 out of 5 stars In the long run, you will be sorry if you buy this monitor.
The cliche "you get what you pay for" certainly applies here.

I got this monitor (...)in August 2002, and have been using it daily ever since. At the time of this review, my Envision monitor is not even 2 years old yet.

When I first bought this monitor, it was pretty clear and sharp. After about a year of use, the text started to get REALLY blurry and unreadable, especially when viewing websites with a white background, like Amazon.com.
However, on websites with a black or blue background, the text is still sharp. The most obvious explanation is that the monitor experiences too much distortion while switching from white to any other color.

This problem seems to be common among cheap CRT monitors. I have another 15" compaq monitor, and it uses the same "shadow mask" technology, and its sharpness has deteriorated over the years. My Sony Trinitron monitor, with "aperture grille" technology, still remains sharp and clear after 4 years. However, the Sony cost 4x as much as this monitor.

This monitor still remains useful for watching movies and playing games, where sharp detail is not really necessary. However, if you are going to be doing a lot of reading, stay away from this.

3-0 out of 5 stars Works for me (so far)
This monitor has been fine for me so far. It does 1024 x 768 at 85Hz (optimal for a 17-inch monitor); has good color, clarity and sharpness; and of course the flat screen. Having owned it only a short time I can't say about long-term reliability. I have had no problems. Recommended for the bargain range, unless you know of any reason against it.

3-0 out of 5 stars Works for me
I just bought one of these, and mine is working fine. It does 1024 x 768 at 85Hz; picture is clear and sharp; goes all the way to the edges; adjustments are intuitive and complete. It's quite new and I can't say how this model may hold up.

(...)

The real question is how the defect rate for one company compares with that of another company. For example, I used to be a network administrator, and found that (in a certain time period, 2000-01) Gateway 17-inch CRT's failed often, while Viewsonics were more consistently OK. That's a more representative report.

So what is the defect rate with Envision compared with other brands? I don't know. The point is, you can't tell by reading reviews like this, unless you read a lot of them in many different places. And even then, you have to keep in mind that the people who have bad experiences are more likely to write.

I have no affiliation with Envision - I'm just trying to be fair, and give it the benefit of the doubt. Mine was $140 and will be a bargain when a $60 rebate arrives. I hope it continues working well for a long time. BTW, www.envisionmonitor.com has FAQ solutions for problems like those described below. ... Read more
