Summary: Great monitor for any build and a great addition to any laptop setup. This monitor doesn't take up much space and still gives you good resolution to do work on or play games. I bought this product for a friend making his PC build and I have yet to hear any complaints. In comparison to other products in relation to the price, you can do no better.
Summary: The monitor is great, and I really like the 3 year warranty that comes along with it. The speakers do not get very loud though. There is only one plug in for the whole unit, so that is nice too.
Pros: I like the large viewing area, it's very crisp and bright. Additionally, this monitor will work with the Mac Pro towers. The cable management is a nice touch.
Cons: I do not like the quality of the audio that comes out of the on board speakers. It's very quiet and muffled. If you're looking for alerts during data processing, these are fine, but for anything more I find them to be unacceptable.
Summary: I've had this monitor at work for about 1-1/2 years as I write this review. In general, it's more than adequate for general office work and internet access. I don't think it was intended to be used for visually intensive work. One other review alluded to fuzziness, and I can see that as I write this review. For larger font sizes and thicker fonts, I have not seen it as a problem, but a lot of viewing black Courier New 10 point on white might be a problem.
