Summary: Does it compare to Apple's monitors? Heck no, but it was barely more than $200. Works and looks great for "normal" use. I can't speak for professional photographers or graphic designers who need perfect color, etc. [...] No burned pixels. Most importantly--wife loves it.
Summary: I like that this monitor provides full HD resolution of 1920x1080 with an affordable price. The monitor is lightweight and the 2ms dynamic rate of the monitor makes it nice for games and movies. The package included both kinds of cables that one might need (VGA & DVI) and the the hookup was very easy. I'm using it as part of a two display setup and I wish both of them were this display.
Summary: I edit a lot of documents. This monitor allows me to have two full size document open at once- not shrunk down to unreadable size for my "older" eyes. For the low cost, this monitor has greatly enhanced my productivity-- cut and paste becomes select and option drag across the screen, comparing versions of a document on screen is faster than with paper, and updating multiple versions of a document (for different audiences) becomes easy.
