Summary: so ive had this monitor for maybe 2 months now hooked up to my mbp since the screen on that is destroyed(using an adapter). everything so far is as advertised. color and picture are great. turns on pretty fast when it receives a signal from the mac.
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.
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.
