Summary: I've been using this monitor for a while now. It's great. I love the base and how it has a small little tray, which I use to keep pens and pencils and stuff, whether or not that was the intent. It also goes "to sleep" when the computer turns off so you don't have to worry about powering it on and off all the time. Overall, good monitor for the price. HP is very accommodating to it's users, so I picked up a copy of the manual and all software from their website.
