Summary: I have several of these. They are good monitors. All the cords are there (DVI, VGA, power). It has an HDMI cable and does fine with blu-ray movies or playstation 3. Just keep in mind the size, only 22". If you want to play a game like Dragon Age, you are better off with a bigger size unless you want to sit really close to this monitor to read all the text and stuff. On Windows 7, works really well with DVI. When I use HDMI, the menus get strange styling.
Summary: I am certainly no expert on LCD's... I bought this PLANAR based on the fact that it would be mucho than my color washed out old Dell and because of the PLANAR price. Pics and videos are about as clear as my Sony TV screen, so I am happy with the fine detail and color. Sure, you could do better, I use it primarily for reading spreadsheets and e-mails...more is not necessary. The screen adj controls are east to use and it sets good.
