Summary: First and foremost, this is a great monitor. Picture is better than average (my Dell U2410 is my benchmark here). Dont buy this monitor if you believe you will get dynamic sound out of it. The sounds, for lack of a better word, is terrible.
Summary: The monitor looks good and can be bought for less than $250. The main thing you should know is that the speakers are horrible. If the fact that this model has speakers is making you consider it, know that they are beyond useless. They are too weak to hear dialogue properly, and any music sounds like it is coming from a radio that is tuned between stations.
Summary: This screen has an awesome size/cost ratio. Cheap and big. Screenwise, I have nothing to complain. It's bright, has a lot of options, colors look good. The installing was confusing though. The booklet showed a picture that basically said ''Just put it in''. I see a lot of people on the internet that said you shouldn't buy this screen because it doesn't fit well on the base. This is true, if you followed the idiotic instructions in the manual.
Summary: Because this is a 27 inch computer display, you are stretching the same 1920x1080 resolution you'd typically find on a 22" display over 27" of real estate. Unless you aren't fussy like me, you may prefer a display running at 2560x1440 instead, because that will look a lot better at the same size. If you look carefully at a normal viewing distance, you can see the individual pixels on the display which kills the experience a little.
Summary: My Hanns G monitor worked very well (apart from one 'blown' pixel which I lived with) for 2 years 6 months then the screen developed a white washed out look. No problem I thought, I've got a 3 year on site warranty. That's how my previous review began and went on to complain about how slow they were in responding. I fully expected that the '3 year on site warranty' would prove to be not worth the parchment etc, and I'd have to buy a new monitor, how wrong was I?
Summary: If like me you are wondering whether this monitor is quite as good as others that cost £30 to £40 more then in my view it is not. That does not mean this is bad value but compared to those slightly more expensive this is not quite as good. No grumbles. It cost a little less and is marginally less good. If I had my time again I would have gone for an Asus or a Benq which by the way I already have so my remarks are based on direct comparison.
Great value but consider the cons in your situation.

Summary: I am a techie nerd and know what's what. You can of course get much better quality LCD displays in terms of precision back lighting and image quality but looking at the picture quality stand alone and not compared with better these are fantastic quality graphics displays (assuming your graphics card can drive them properly). Text is clear and sharp and no sign of any flickering.
Good monitor, fantastic value for money but its in for repairs...READ

Summary: I got the monitor for a absolute bargin, £159 unfortunately the HDMI has developed a fault only days after getting it. Connected my HDMI Cable while the monitor was on, was greeted by a hissin crackling sound, like the monitor was going to blow up. Ever since then when i select "deep colour" on my ps3 the image scrambles and goes all fuzzy. I have tired different HDMI inputs and the DVI which was fine.
