Summary: If you're considering a flat-screen monitor - it's WORTH IT. This thing is excellent - it's clear, crisp, and vibrant. The screen doesn't fade to black from the side, you can still see the picture looking strait on. It doesn't blink like normal monitors - in fact when I take a photograph of the screen there are no flashing lines, it's a solid picture. Less eye strain - I love it!

Summary: Thank goodness for these reviews! If not, I'd be feeling a sucker. For the first time I was looking to "upgrade" from a CRT to a LCD monitor. The upgrading rush had me thinking about getting one with a TV tuner incorporated. All this, of course, getting the best bang for my buck. After going through dozens of reviews--SCARY if I may add-- I stayed clear from LCD with TV tuners, and decided to spend that equivalent amount on this monitor (after all, a brand name for only...
