Summary: I'm not a monitor expert so I was looking 2 things before I bought this product: looks and energy savings, and I get more that I wanted, it is great looking althought the buttons should be at the side of the screen and not at the bottom, but for a guy that was upgrading from an old 15" Compaq CRT monitor found the W1907 is like heaven. The sound quality of the integrated speakers is good for an office PC but is null for a home-entertainment use in my opinion.
Summary: I looked at several monitors in the $100 - $125 price range and the HP 1907 stood out from the bunch. I don't like the anti-glare coating that Acer puts on all of their monitors. It makes the screen dull and less sharp. The HP monitor has a crystal clear display that renders a beautiful, sharp image. The HP monitor was on sale for $110 at Office Max which seemed like a really good deal. About the only downside with this particular monitor is the 1 year warranty.
Summary: Has a good image but a "wide" monitor means it isn't very high (only a quarter of an inch more that my old 15" CRT). Getting the monitor on the proper angle on the stand was a bit tricky since it seemed possible the stand would break. Good price & no more left and right scrolling.

Summary: Great value for the money, but.....
Built-in speakers are poor.
Tried to setup under VGA Windows XP and found text very hard to read. Changed the Resolution from the default to 1360 X 768 to give my eyes a break. Aside from that, no complaints.

Summary: Setup was easy except for the base. The instructions showed where it hooked on and said how to put it on. This reminds me of a recipe for rabbit that begins, "First, catch a rabbit." I was worried about breaking a part so I didn't want to really force it. It took quite a bit of force to get things together and some experimentation to figure out a technique. I'll probably leave the base on whenever I move. Otherwise, setup was a piece of cake.
