Summary: We encountered the same problem while playing the dialog-rich Fallout 3. The audio issue wouldn’t be as much of a problem if there was a headphone jack that you could plug headphones or powered speakers into, but there isn’t one. If you’re in the market for an inexpensive monitor, there are plenty to be had. Don’t settle for this one.
Pros: Very good black levels; removable stand tilts and swivels; controls are easy to use.
Cons: No DVI port; no headphone jack; egregious color-tracking errors; specular reflections.
