Pros: The image quality is AMAZING. It is crisp, clear, and bright but not overpowering. It switches between inputs in a hurry. My old Samsung felt like it was baking my eyeballs; the Planar monitor is on all day and is still cool to the touch.
Pros: Good monitor for the price if you catch it on sale. Great image quality, good enough for everyday computer use. You can connect two separate devices, like a computer and a game console to it at the same time and automatically switch between them.
Cons: On a scale of 1 to 10, the sound quality is at best a 4. There is no headphone jack so you won't be able to pipe the sound out to a better set of speakers. There is no height adjustment with the included stand.
