Summary: I run two of these on a desk-mounted dual monitor stand. They work great but a a little heavy for the pivot points of the stand arms. That's a fault of the stand, not the monitors. A little blue Loc-Tite on the pivot points helped solve the problem.
Summary: I bought this, thinking it would be a match for my HannSpree HD255. Turns out there a two models of the HD255. The one I owned and like has HDMI inputs. This one does not, and only has DVI and VGA inputs. Still, a good looking monitor, and aside from the lack of HDMI, it's okay for my purposes.
Great quality and price, but doesn't last very long.

Summary: The monitor was great when it worked. I bought this exact monitor in May of 2010. About a week and a half ago the backlight went out on it. I paid $199.99 for it at the time. I loved the thing. The picture was outstanding. However, it didn't even last me three years, which makes me a sad panda.
Pros: Clear bright easy to read. For non-LED backlight it runs cool ...case gets warm but not hot (unlike my DELL monitor which you need to let cool down to move). Good monitor for the money.
Cons: after about 9 months I've got 1 bad pixel near the center of the screen, so far lightly pressing on the screen makes the connection and the "spot" goes away. you don't notice the spot unless its in the middle of a black area.
Summary: 6 months of ownership as of Jan 7, 2012 and a recent motherboard upgrade with HDMI output option makes me want HDMI. I'll have to wait a bit more before I can justify a monitor upgrade for myself.
Pros: Coming from a 19 inch monitor nice size upgrade.
Summary: It is worth spending a little more to get a more reliable brand. I myself will never buy I-Inc Hanspree again.
Pros: Big size screen for the price.
Cons: Came with a 1 Year Manufacturer's warranty and purchased a 1 year extended warranty as well. After 2 years and 6 months the monitor died. Won't stay lit for more then 15 seconds. After doing some reading online come to find this is a very common problem. 2 words: Planned Obsolescence. Very cheapl...
