Summary: I purchased this monitor for the size and features, I purchased this for my new computer rig. I do a lot of video editing and music recording and if you know anything about those two, when it comes to the programs needed to do both, there are a lot of windows and multiple things to look at. Given the fact that I needed space and anything less than 20" would not cut it, I wavered back and forth between the 24" and the 27".
Summary: outstanding monitor. Rich colors, VGA and HDMI input, can scan automatically for the input, several customization/configuration options, adjustable swivel. 1920x1080 max resolution, crisp and sharp! About the only problem I see is a somewhat higher than usual current draw. This monitor consumes a bit more electricity, but I'm ok with that. In fact, I'll soon buy a second one, and possibly a third.
Fantastic monitor with excellent LED backlighting and color detail.

Summary: This is a huge monitor with lifelike colors. I only noticed how poor my other monitor was after comparing a picture of a snow covered mountain. The snow is not flat and this monitor shows the subtle ripples and shadows that are completely missing on the other monitor. I drag a document from the other display and the background is much cleaner and whiter. I would love to have two of these.
