Summary: The color and sharpness of the display are very good. Compares well with higher end displays. I debated on going with an HP or ViewSonic of the same size and I'm glad I got the VS since it was less cost and worked perfectly with a Mac Mini. The power savings compared to my previous LCD will be considerable. Speakers sound ok but they are just for show, if you want good sound you need a real set of speakers or headphones.
