Summary: I have used this for about four years now and have fond it to be very good. A 27" 1080 p screen for desk use is big, sometime a little too big, due to the lower PPI. The main reason this is a good fit is for watching movies from 5-8 feet, for which it is perfect.
Summary: I purchased this monitor this month (jun-2010). For the value, the monitor is great. It looks great and I love the feature that it has for "Auto" bright. I have my macbook pro connected via hdmi (with adapter) , my macpro with DVI and my acer aspire (mini) running ubuntu with vga. It works great.
Summary: I am using Windows 7, 64 bit system with this monitor. The information regarding the correct setup for Forte Manager is as follows: 1. HDMI and DVI cannot both be plugged into this monitor at the same time. 2. Use DVI shielded cables (quality) ones for your hookup.
Summary: Once calibrated, the picture is very good. I can't get the forteManager software to work consistently, though. Most of the time, the "Display" tab is grayed out. And currently, the "Check Update" button takes you to a broken link.
Summary: I am very please with the monitor. Big and bright. Easy to hook up, with the correct cables (bought seperately). Only a single problem. Never did figure out how to work the internal monitor color adjustment controls.
Summary: I received this monitor from my son at Christmas and I have enjoyed every minute of use. It is easy to use and gives a very clear picture. I am a user of many photos and video programs and I enjoy watching these shows on such a large monitor. My friends were impressed with it.
Pros: Quality, Features/Settings, easy to use, Performance, Style/Design
Summary: Its bright (I love the auto-bright adjustment), huge, and fast. I play WoW and it looks amazing. At 400nits, 27" with an HDMI input (I use for my flip camcorder), and 16:9 its an excellent value at $389 from Fry's Electronics 12-11-09.
