Rated a Very Helpful Review
Pros: Low price, nice picture
Cons: Short VGA cable, some tweaking required for best picture quality
Summary: I purchased my PL913S at Fred Meyer today for $275 with a $75 mail in rebate. I've only used it for a few hours now, but so far I am pretty happy. The screen is clear and sharp. The screen has automatically adjusted itself for height, width and ... read more

Pros: Looks fancy and modern.
Cons: Manufactured under authority of American owned company.
Summary: Not that anybody is keeping track, but this seems to be the place I like to go when I've had it with American companies and their crappy let's-slap-some-junk-together-
products. Yes, Proview is an American-owned company. I made sure ... read more

Pros: Price, size, good monitor for standard computer uses.
Cons: Color balancing tough. Had trouble setting balance. Not good for multimedia.
Summary: I purchased this monitor at Staples on sale for $280.00 - a great buy. However, when I got the monitor home and all hooked up I began to notice problems. First of all, I have Dell 1905FP monitors at work so I am quite spoiled with these monitors. ... read more

Pros: Excellent picture
Cons: Quality, customer service
Summary: Went dead after 6 months. Two days of constant Long Distance calls to CS to get a return authorization AFTER faxing the purchase receipt. Huge cost to send to repair. Returned in 3 weeks with no ... read more

Pros: Great resolution with graphics and photos. No complaints with setup or adjustments. DVDs are awesome!
Cons: No speakers - but I'll live with the old ones until.......
Summary: I purchased this 19" monitor at Staples for $278.00 and thought it was a bargain. Got it home, ditched the 17" CRT I'd had for the last 2 years, and set this one up with ease. Text clarity is as good, if not better than the old monitor; ... read more

Pros: Price, space saving, resolution.
Cons: The reboots obviously.
Summary: I bought the same monitor, also at Staples on sale for $279. Had to bring it back for an exchange about 10 days later because of what I think was a bad pixel. There was a red dot about 1/3 of the way up and square in the middle horizontally. Staples gave ... read more

Pros: Price was dirt cheap for a 19" LCD
Cons: Until someone makes a really good driver for this unit, its not worth owning.
Summary: Bought this unit for less than $300 which I thought was a deal. Plugged it in, and went to the internet, and the text quality was so bad it was unreadable when using the Plug and Play monitor in Windows 2000. Went to their website, downloaded the latest ... read more

Pros: Light weight, good refresh rate, large display, low power consumption
Cons: Slight lag issues with FPS's, worse if not in native resolution
Summary: Purchased this for $279.00 at Stables on sale. I've held off buying LCD's due to poor reviews with respect to Gaming performance. This unit performs well with DOOM 3 and FAR CRY when set to its native resolution. There are minor latency issues, but ... read more
