By kyle wagner on December 13, 2004
I just received this monitor ("sceptre x9-komodo ii*") today and am impressed with the clarity and readability of the screen (see later for why I rated the monitor so low). I am using it through the DVI connector, not the analog connector It seems like there is a bit of a lag when I drag windows around, but a few quick tests with several games show the graphics to be crisp and movement to not leave too much of a shadow. The colors are good but seem a little washed out. I am using the DVI option, so there is no color adjustment, only brightness and contrast. Perhaps my graphics card is to blame, but I'm using an nvidia geforce3 ti200, which is a decent graphics card.

The only problem I have with this monitor is that it arrived with 2 dead pixels and a small, light-grey blob, about 3x3 pixels (perhaps one of the RGB elements is out in that area?). Sceptre has no warranty on dead pixels, from the warranty: "6. LCD Exclusion: Sceptre does not warrant burnt pixels on any and or all LCD displays". Buyer beware - you get what you pay for!

The monitor has a VESA mounting back - 4 screw holes separated by 100mm in a square configuration. There are a fair number of wall mounts for this, but neither the manual nor the manufacturer's website ([...]) is clear about which ones would work or how you would prepare the monitor for wall-mounting. The monitor has its own stand, and it's hard to see how this stand can be detached before mounting directly to the wall with a VESA 100mm standard wall-mount.

My rating of this monitor would be higher if it hadn't had these dead pixel defects and if Sceptre actually had a "dead pixel" policy. I'm not a techological "apologist" - these things may be high-tech, but the manufacturers see fit to sell them to us, so they should be ready to go.

The Komodo series has a few variations, but all employ high-quality LCD panels. The X9g-Komodo II (X9=19" diagonal, II=variation II of the Komodo serise) has a very nice panel (possibly made by Fujitsu) that's capable of 1280x1024 resolution and 16.7 million colors. The backlighting is very even, and at the max setting (25), too bright for most settings. I set it at 13, with contrast around 15 (out of 25), and it still looks bright in my office. No dead pixels on my unit.

Not all the Komodo models have the digital DVI connector. If you need DVI, be sure to get the right variation.

In summary, like other Sceptre offerings, the X9g-Komodo offers excellent image quality for a low price that's hard to beat. Very highly recommended.

I bought one of these (X9g-Komodo II 19" LCD DVI Monitor [Black]) for myself and then a few days later my wife's monitor died and I bought another one. (I still suspect that she broke her CRT monitor out of jealousy, but I have no proof :-)

We have been extremely pleased with the video quality and the price was outstanding. The 1280x1024 resolution in a 19" display is a good compromise for eyes that aren't so young any more. We both play high-frame-rate games and neither of us really notice any ghosting.

No dead pixels, no obvious variation in screen brightness. Both contrast and brightness are outstanding. The overall viewing quality is as good as the 23" Apple Cinema Display (1920x1280) that I used at work, and you could get about 5 of these for the price of that Apple display!

One minor caveat -- one of the two monitors (mine) has a surprisingly blurry display when using the analog (VGA) input, while the other one (my wife's) looks great. Not quite enough to be a "defect", but definitely disappointing, and drops my review from 5 stars to 4. Since I bought the display to use the DVI input, this weakness has only been a minor inconvenience, but it does mean that I can't effectively use my monitor with an SVGA KVM switch -- it would probably be fine with my wife's, but I have not tried swapping them for this test.

I think I used the internal speakers once -- that was enough. You get what you would expect to get from a couple of 1 inch cones....
