Summary: I bought two of these monitors... Pros: - The stand is very nice. You can turn the monitor 90 degrees and easily adjust its height and tilt. Major cons: - One has a green stuck pixel! - It took me a frustrating hour to isolate a subtle flickering problem with one of the two monitors. After several tests using spare cables and a second computer, I discovered that the VGA port on one is defective and causes the screen to flicker like an old CRT after a couple minutes!
Summary: The stand could be too high if you put it on top of desk. The blue, shiny power light sits in the middle of the bottom side is very annoying. It keeps begging for your attention. The screen looks like a matte to me. Why are people talking about anti-reflection coating? The screen seems bright, but it is not sharp or "pop".
Summary: I was so excited to receive my new monitor. Colors great, the already assembled stand that allows vertical and horizontal movement is great. But the USB ports are defective so have to ship it back to the manufacture for replacement. They are paying shipping for it to go fed-ex there and back. So hopefully get one that works 100% back cause I really do like everything about this monitor.
Rude customer support but actually the product is good

Summary: I gave this product a bad review after I had waves on this monitor that caused eye strain. I bought a new computer and from that point on this product works very well actually. I will take my words back on the quality of the product. By all means this is a great product. I will still give it three stars (and not five) because the customer support was rude and unwilling to understand the issue. Folks, the product is good.
Can't complain really, but colour calibration is unreliable.

Summary: This external monitor is good and works perfectly with my MacBook Pro 2.8GHz Intel Core 2 Duo (15-inch) Mid-2009 computer (with the Mini DisplayPort to VGA Adapter, £25 from Apple). Acts as a USB hub, which is useful. Effectively this means you gain three additional USB ports. The 1920 x 1080 resolution is good, but it's not quite as sharp as I'd like. No matter how many times I've attempted to calibrate it, I cannot rely on the colours represented by this screen.
