    Comments about Asus 19" Black LCD Computer Monitor:

    This monitor meets my home computing needs. It is the right size for my desk. It works well now that I've adjusted the resolution. The only problem was figuring out how to adjust the computer. The instructions were poor and it was hard to see the buttons at the bottom of the screen to navigate the settings.

    Service and delivery comments:

    The delivery was prompt. I ordered the monitor on Monday just before 2pm and it arrived on Wednesday. The product was in good condition when it arrived.

        Comments about Asus 19" Black LCD Computer Monitor:

        This monitor has an excellent picture and is basically plug 'n play but if you need to change the settings tech support is abysmal. I still don't know how to use the OSD and the buttons are hard to see. ABT is a great company but when I can afford it I will buy a different monitor, and keep this for emergency back up.

          I installed the unit myself, I thought it would be difficult. But I read the instructions twice and I was good to go. No problems.I wish the speakers were louder, but for the cost of the unit I cannot complain.

          This is a very good monitor for the money. Asus is also a very good motherboard maker. I have had three computers with their motherboards dating back ten years.
