Summary: This monitor is excellent for everything except graphics. It was not made for even low end design or photo work. If you work with graphic design and PhotoShop (I do) then you need a monitor than can be calibrated to a much higher degree than this. For common use, the Internet, writing, viewing photos etc it is fine. The color is vibrant and clear. I use it for a surveillance monitor and have no complaints about it.
Summary: The displays are gorgeous! But the cords (power, VGA, DVI-D, and sound) are all about 4' (didn't actually measure them). That is barely long enough to go from the PC, up through the hole in the back of the desk, to the monitor if both are sitting very close to the hole. I bought six of these to use in our office as dual displays for three PCs. The cords are not long enough to reach the monitor furthest from the hole.
Summary: We bought these as a solution to upgrading to dual monitors. They've got the VGA and DVI connections which are great and power on quickly, no dead pixels. Only con: wish there was a bit more of a tilt to the monitor but I'm probably splitting hairs.
Summary: I have the 13" Macbook Air that matches the resolution of this monitor (1440x900). This is the perfect extra monitor since the screens are the same size. This is physically bigger than the 13" screen on the Mac, but obviously doesn't look as good as the screen on the Macbook Air. Macbook screen quality is hard to beat. However, it does look good. I use it as my primary monitor while working.
Summary: Right out of the package it looked great, but this wasn't meant for DVI right out of the box. I had to connect it to a VGA usable PC in order to change the settings to use DVI, and even then it didn't work. The DVI port was faulty. Not only that, but the power cord didn't work well, if you moved the monitor it would sometimes lose connectivity and I would have to reconnect it. If you're looking for a cheap flat screen monitor, look elsewhere.
