    "For under $70 US it's a wonder how Sceptre managed to pack so many features at such a small price point. The screen size is not lacking and it provides all the modern connectivity the average user would need. The inclusion of a pair of built in speakers is appreciated especially if you're on a budget."

    "Pretty good resolution, size is fantastic for watching movies on your computer or gaming (although I honestly don't game). This monitor even has a built-in speaker! For the price, it's definitely worth its value. I almost wanted to buy a second as backup."

    "I got a refurbished S1922a monitor at a flea market for $50, and even with how little I paid I am dissappointed. Color is alright, but there's heavy ghosting, and more importantly, 1366x768 is just too low. Almost all the programs and games I tried seemed to be optimized for 1920x1080, and the pixels are easily visible even when I was standing 2 feet away. I regret not saving up and getting at least a basic 1080p monitor."

    "No, no, no. (Did I say no?) Look - the price of monitors has come down and the quality has gone up. You can do WAY better than this older model. There is nothing wrong with it, but I have two much better monitors in my house, that I picked up just at Christmas time. And I paid less than 100 for both. Do your research and then start looking. I promise, there's a lot to pick from. "
