Summary: Great monitor. Bigger than I expected. Easier to see with my failing vision. Nice controls on the front which work with just a light touch. Great for streaming video and HD movies. Good value.
Summary: decided to upgrade my computer setup, but budgetary constraints required a piecemeal approach - I've had the new computer CPU for about 6 months, using my old 17" screen. Finally sprung for a larger monitor. i now have dual screens - this 24" for development, the old 17 for checking compatiblity and such. this monitor has a nice bonus - the glow that says "it's on" is at the bottom center of the screen, conveniently lighting my keyboard nicely.
