This is a very nice Monitor for the price.
Its a monitor, and a fast one for the money.
This monitor is a jewel, best picture of any monitor I've owned.
If this was something I had to deal with on a regular basis the unit would be getting returned.
If you have to be very precise with the color, this is not the monitor for you!Picture is very bright, and if you are working a spreadsheet, or writing letters, or just surfing the web; it is a good (and large enough) display.
Fine for using as a standard work monitor but do NOT watch movies on it or play videogames.
I bought 2 of these monitors, and have also used them in the past.
2nd My Monitor has a pinstripe look to it.
As for the pin-striping.
It was my graphics card.
