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: 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: 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.
