Summary: I have been using this as the primary display connected to my laptop. The picture is crystal clear and the speakers are better than the built-in ones on my laptop (and I'm using HDMI to send audio and video on one cable). I even used this to fill in as a TV when moving so we could set up the cable box prior to the moving guys coming and moving my actual television. It worked great for that as well. I would definitely buy this product again!
