Summary: Great monitor and deal but the absence of a power cable is a bit of a heinous oversight don't you think ? You still have to plug it in for it to work, I should be able to do that out of the box.
Summary: Just got this monitor yesterday. I replaced my 19" square LCD monitor with this one. To be honest, when I first hooked it up I considered returning it because I thought it was overwhelming sitting so close to a monitor as big and bright as this one. However, once I dimmed the brightness, it became much more comfortable. If you're set on a wide screen monitor, I can't imagine you could get a better product for the price.
