Summary: My buddy's very old 15 inch LCD monitor was finally kicking the bucket. For years I tried to get him to upgrade it, but he was in love with his little Dell. It was a great monitor at the time, but it's time had come when he tried to play a game on it, a dark game, and he saw NOTHING. Yup, it was just about burned out. He's not very technologically savvy and was almost immediately lost when he went to Best Buy.
Summary: Working great, nice picture, everything as advertised. Bezel is shiny(shows dust and fingerprints), speakers are utilitarian, stand isn't earthquake-proof --- if any of these things are deal-breakers for you, get something else.
