Summary: A little packing material could possibly protect the screen from getting so scratched up. When I first got the box, I thought it was a bunch of parts from one of my branches, until it was opened to see it was actually a monitor.
Pros: Comes with all the cables and stand. Powered up right away.
Cons: The stand (2 pieces) and cables were loosely packaged, and with the way UPS tosses their boxes around, the screen had multiple scratches in it.
Summary: Nice inexpensive monitor for pairing with my netbook computer. When I'm away from home, I needed a monitor with 1680 x 1050 resolution, which is the highest that my netbook computer can provide. For my desktop PC, I use an Asus ProArt 24" monitor with 1920 x1280 resolution.
