Image for Sceptre D50X 15 Non-Glare Flat Screen CRT Monitor

The Sceptre D50X is a flat screen CRT monitor. It boasts a 1024 x 768 65 Hz (moderate flicker) maximum resolution, 0.28-millimeter dot pitch (a crisper, cleaner image), multistep dynamic focus technology for sharper images, and an Anti-reflective, anti-static screen coating with a 5-year warranty. It's Energy Star labeled as well.

My desk is small, so I had to go with the 15-inch instead of the larger 17-inch monitor. It has a low price and is ideal for home and corporate users with medium-level graphics needs.

No configuration is necessary with its full plug-and-play support. There are four factory default settings and 17 adjustable ones. It uses the Advanced Response Rotational Control, which has only two knobs to make all your adjustments.

It has USB capabilities that allows sharper video throughput and can be daisy chain linked to free IO ports.

This monitor is for PCs only (no Macs) and supports DSS speakers.

The 15-inch model weighs in it at 31 pounds.

I bought this monitor after my old monitor started to conk out. I found it on ebay for $80 - a steal back then and still a good price now. The quality is great for the price. Flat screen is a huge improvement over the old CRTs.

The controls are simple but the control symbols can look like heirogyphics. The swivel base is annoyed because doesn't just turn side-to-side - instead it moves up or down at an angle as you turn it.

You can't go wrong for $80! 1024 x 768 is still used by most sites but it's just starting to go to higher resolutions.
