-Donovan quote

I received my monitor a little late. But when I received it I realized it was worth waiting. It has a very sleek design and everything. Setup was very easy, it came with all the cables other than HDMI (DVI, 3.5 Audio, VGA)... Now performance, It definitely has a very crisp picture quality... I was using it with my Windows XP which wasn't giving me resolution more than 1024 * 768 and was like whats going on... well my system is old... so I upgraded it with windows 7... and omg... there is a significant difference... games are nice... videos look great... inbuilt speakers sounds very good they really have crystal clear sound... I ll recommend to anyone who needs a new monitor... for price I am a happy kid
