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. Yes, 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 I recevied has, still to this day, a constant, noticeable flicker that will ruin your life and that of your offspring.
Summary: Great resolution, works perfectly with my laptop. Took a bit to find the right cable (hdmi to VGA) but once that was settled, I have been extremely satisfied. I use dual computers for grad studying- I highly recommend it.
Summary: I purchased this monitor because it was relatively affordable and I wanted a monitor so I could dual screen my laptop for doing programming homework. Although that is the main reason I purchased this monitor, I plan to use it for gaming here and there. I received it today and it was very easy to setup (most monitor are). It looks very sleek, and has a small footprint if you have limited desk space (as I do.) So far it has great colors and depth to the picture.
