Summary: At the time when I was looking for external monitors such as this one, I was worried about build quality, and how some monitors from this brand or that have lines or flickering, etc. Don't let the negative reviews get too much in your head specially if the product has mostly positive reviews.
it turned out to be a detriment and I found myself wishing I had gone for a more recent one when I bought a better GPU. The unit

Summary: This is a low end affordable monitor for a budget build. Do not purchase if you're upgrading, it would defeat the purpose of the way it was designed. It has a max resolution of 1440x900, and no HDMI port.
