Pros: Cheap 24" Monitor, Great screen for TN panel, HDMI/DVI/VGA inputs, SPDIF out, Decent speakers for integrated, beats speakers on my XPS M1530, No dead pixels for me, Native 1920x1080 (1080p) resolution for Xbox 360. Cons: Biggest issue is monitor doesn't sleep in HDMI mode. It will display blue screen, you have to turn it off manually, Stand isn't great, kinda woobles, Some backlight bleeding, not too much, OSD menu system is painful to use, No height adjustment. Make sure to adjust monitor mode to standard and calibrate the display.

I bought this monitor to replace my 19" Samsung 932BW. Talk about a nice change. With a 20000:1 contrast ratio at 1080p over an HDMI cable, this monitor brings out details that I didn't even notice on my other monitor. I gave ease of use a 4 out of 5, for the same reason the other reviewer did: You have to power the monitor down when connected via HDMI, (It doesn't automatically enter sleep mode). I didn't have any wobbling, and my stand is pretty sturdy. No problems with backlight bleeding either. My only issue so far is that The Sims 2's resolution settings top out at 1440 x 900, and this monitor can do 1920 x 1080. My other games run great on it, at the full 1920 x 1080, with no problems. For the price of what the big box stores charge for a smaller monitor with a crappy 3000:1 or less contrast ratio (and no HDMI), I got this 24" beauty.
