I wanted to buy a new monitor for myself and give my dad my old 21" Gateway LCD. I shopped around and looked high and low for something with a nice dot pitch , fast responce time , bigger than my old 21" and at a fair price. I was not pleased with the old reviews of the last 24" Gateway so I stayed away from it. I saw a local store near me had this one in stock so I decided to take a look. Lucky for me and them that they had it on display. I looked at it ( 20" model ) and was very impressed by how crisp and clear the picture was. I noticed the text was tight and clean, very easy to read ( 0.265 Pixel Pitch )<---- this is why, the smaller the number the tighter the pixels are, the clearer the text will be. My other test in store was to put it on screen saver and see what "BLANK" looked like, test it to see back light bleed. Wow not bad at all, really not at all.

I bought the 23" model, I was sold after looking at how good it looked in the store. Funny thing is Gateway still does not have this monitor up on there website. Anyway, hook up was so easy, came out of the box fairly easy but was packed very well. It came with an HDMI cable, DVI cable and a VGA cable also the power cord. The base just popped on to the bottom of the screen with ease, so easy that when I did it I wasn't sure that I did it. Lets boot it up and see how it looks, NO DEAD or STUCK pixels yay! Had to tone down the brightness and contrast, lowerd the gamma. Breathtaking, as I saw my wallpaper come to life on this 23" beauty.

Game time, lets see how World Of Warcraft looks. It looks like a totaly new game, the colors really pop. No ghosting, or anything wrong. Really looks fantastic! Very happy with this screen and my dad was very happy to get my old Gateway 21" for his basement pc.

I bought this monitor 1 week ago, in fact someone bought it for me because since I live in the Caribbean I needed a way to ship it here cheaper than my regular skybox.
After having it one week I must say this is a thing of beauty, I bought it because it was the cheapest Glossy Anti Reflective LCD display in 1080P available for desktops.
Actually I was about to buy the HP but after seeing this was 40,000:1 contrast ratio compared to the HP's 1000:1 I decided on this.

Either way I would still be happy because I could not find another GLOSSY Anti reflective desktop monitor on earth. Took me 2 weeks of researching to find it, I find it sad that most people think matte is better when this is not true. Glossy is sharper by a million miles, it don't give the horrible haze and eye fatigue of matte display. You can use this in a room with sun light and its sharp and bright as day!!! This is the beauty of Glossy, I was going blind with Anti Glare Matte displays and when I saw a Gateway gloss laptop I fell in love with glossy displays.

The built in speakers in this is more or less useless but I don't care since I use a Logitech Z5500 for sound. But hey its still better than nothing and its quite convenient to have built in speakers. Contrast is superb!!!! 40,000:1 baby!
Also has the option of dynamic contrast and when you enable it, its like magic everything is so amazing and beautiful on this monitor.
I can even do photoshop work on this baby. Color reproduction could however be better but for the price you absolutely cannot complain.

Its also 16:9 widescreen ratio so this means its true real wide screen unlike most pc monitors thats 16:10.
It has DVI, VGA and HDMI ports so what else can you ask for.

The other reviews of 5 stars feel a bit hyped and not complete. Although I like this monitor due to its advantages, it still has some flaws that keep it quite away from a solid 5 out of 5. I have an older 30" LCD (matte coating) monitor sitting right beside it and both monitors on black screens have polarizing qualities, with the gateway being clearly worse (due to bleeding).

To sum things up easily for other customers:

Pros (excellent stuff):
1) Inputs HDMI, DVI-D, VGA and audio (with all related cables!).
2) Max resolution at 1080p (1920 x 1080).
3) Speakers built in.
4) On screen buttons for calibration, sound and input mode.
5) Pretty picture quality (being glossy and all - also a con).

1) On screen buttons are a pain to find in the dark (they are located under the bottom frame).
2) Screen-Bleeding from the sides (I wouldn't mention it unless it was pretty bad like in this monitor).
3) Glossy surface - many consider this more of a taste than fact, although factually glossy coating is cheaper of a component to make than a glare-eliminating matte cover, despite the "sharp" look. It's more of a feel than actually sharpening the screen. I'm in a bright room and it's a bit distracting. Professionally speaking, matte coating is far more desirable.
4) Viewing angle is very low.
5) Doesn't have USB output.

Personally, the cons that pull the quality down are 2 and 4, the rest are generally acceptable.

All in all, it's a good monitor with nice pluses such as the resolution, the amount of inputs, setup options (calibration) and built in speakers (value monitor for gaming or even an HDTV on a computer station or a small room). I'd cautiously recommended it if you're aiming for a monitor to do digital artwork or high-end imagery.

4 out of 5.
