Summary: This is just a short notice to point something out that has just come up for me. When I bought the monitor I was using Windows XP and have switched to Windows 7. I agree with all the great reviews that have been written about this monitor but one of its features that is important to some people is...
Summary: This is an E-IPS screen which is supposed to be cheaper and more inferior that the S-IPS screens. But I have to say I am very happy with this product, and that it's good value at this price point. I also have a Dell 2209 which is also a E-IPS screen.
Summary: I am a professional photographer and I bought this as second monitor for my home office. So far I am really pleased with the product. I use apple computers and monitors so that is what I have to compare with and this monitor is what it claims to be.
Summary: I first bought an LG 2480D monitor, but returned this as it had a green bar down the center. I had to have an IPS monitor for my work. After 3 months of research, I decided that this was the best value. I absolutely love this monitor. Beautiful image. CONS - text is a little washed out and blurry.
Summary: This IPS monitor's image brightness is fairly independent of my viewing position. That's a great plus when you're editing and printing photos. Now what I see on the monitor is pretty much what I get. The combination of this monitor and an after market video card is like high fidelity in imaging.
Summary: Like everyone, I searched all the buyer and professional reviews here and elsewhere for a monitor in this size and price range. Mostly the the pro sites favored certain Dell and NEC models, but then came the chance to get a used one from Amazon's warehouse deals for a very nice price.
Finally, a high quality affordable monitor for my Mac - ???

Summary: [UPDATE AUG 10, 2012] Good-as-new monitor just arrived. I had almost forgotten how nice of an image it has after a week of using a Vizio 1080p as a monitor (terrible colors for use with a computer).
Summary: I purchased this monitor six months ago from Amazon and am extremely impressed by it's clarity and color - it makes working with photos so much easier. However, BEWARE of the PerfectSuite software that comes with the monitor.
Summary: I am a photographer and wanted a new monitor with accurate colors to accompany my 2010 Mac Mini. I did ALOT of research and for the budget I have and the general size of the screen I wanted (23-27"), this was the best bet.
Summary: This is the monitor I use with a Mac at my job as a graphic designer. I had an older (clear plastic) 20" Apple LCD monitor that bit the dust. The company didn't want to spend the money for another Apple monitor. For under $300 this looked like what I needed.
