Pros: Base is very sturdy, has an array of ways to connect the monitor, additional 2 USB ports on the side. I use this at my desk and just plug my laptop into it and put my laptop in my desk. Easy to use and change configurations, great quality picture.
Cons: The factory settings for the color, contract, brightness ect are not the best choices. Once out of the box you may not be as impressed but change the configurations a bit and the quality is excellent.
Summary: I gladly overpaid $247 for this monitor which I previously bought from Dell for $209. Dell has since discontinued it as they have all monitors that swivel to portrait orientation. Even at the higher price it is an excellent choice. I frequently enjoy movies in full screen and the quality is very satisfying. For work, I edit documents. It is often useful to swivel the monitor so that a whole page may be viewed at once.
Summary: [...] The LCD looks nice. I am using this with my Mac Mini, using a Display Port Cable (and a mini-DP to DP adapter on the mini). The LCD Stand is State of the Art. I have never seen anything like this. I was thinking i would need a Wall LCD support, but i would not change this Stand ever. I would recommend this product to anyone on a budget, looking for some nice LCD.
"Quality LCD, rare gloss finish, good for fussy eyes"

Pros: Nice solid images, good but not great colours. Very nice design for its age. HDMI input. Rare Glossy screen. USB hub and integrated web cam. Have been using for a year now with no issues, very reliable and solid unit.
Cons: Poor text for thin fonts on some backgrounds. Colours shift dramatically with the viewing angle, especially vertically. Would not recommend for graphic artists, but if you like glossy screens & want an easy on the eyes screen then this is for you.
Summary: This monitor has very good resolution and the webcam also produces a good quality image. My only caveat is that the monitor screen is highly reflective, and depending on the placement can result in a lot of glare.

Pros: Big, bright, evenly lit, relatively inexpensive, webcam, HDMI, DVI, VGA, USB all included.
Cons: Viewing angles are just terrible; OK for movies and games, but forget about anything involving text! Text is annoyingly unsharp and JPGs show obvious compression artefacts which makes it nearly useless for 95% of applications. Avoid!!!
