Pros: Audio capability, HDMI compatibility (with separate source selector) make it versatile. Full-gloss screen pops with unbelievable clarity. Touch-button power is a nice, elegant feature. Display becomes a player in your setup, not end of the line.
Cons: Getting PC desktop to use full screen (and stay that way) is difficult without a Win7 driver available. Might be nice to plug devices straight in back instead of upwards into the back source panel.
