Almost what I was looking for.....11/28/2010
As 24" HD monitors go, this one is okay but I have another that is a bit larger, rotates between portrait and landscape, and is a tad brighter, and the speakers are better. What I really wanted was a built-in web cam, and this monitor provided it. What it DIDN't provide and is a bit disappointment is that it has no built-in microphone, and that would have been a nobrainer for them to add. It was just too easy to assume it would have been part of the package. Also, unless you are using HMDI input, this monitor offers no way to use audio input and has only speaker and headphone OUTPUT. Jeez, they could have left that nearly useless feature off and added the mic. Another feature my other monitor has is a built-in USB hub. How hard would that have been to add to the monitor along with the mic? Who are these product spec guys? I wasn't unhappy enough to return it, but I came close. If it were my only monitor, I might not have noticed the brigthness and size features, and for about $40 less, I probably could have just plunked a standalone web cam, including mic, on top of it and been just as happy.
I purchased this monitor over a year ago and just bought another to give as a gift. The display is bright, clear and viewable from almost any angle with virtually no glare. It works amazingly well for all the newest games (such as Call of Duty: MWII), as well as day-to-day work with office applications. MS Word will display two pages side-by-side at 100% zoom level. The camera works well for videoconferencing, but like most standard web cams, has some difficulty in low lighting (i.e. a home office with no lights on). Everything worked out-of-the-box with Windows 7 64-bit without the need to install drivers. This monitor has internal speakers and will also work as an HDTV when plugged directly into a DVR with the HDMI port.

The display is great, but the built-in webcam software is not friendly. Although Skype recognizes it. Another drawback is it does not have a built-in microphone, so I needed to add an external mic. On my 2005 Dell XPSGen2 machine, the USB webcam conflicts with my Sony digital camera. I had to unplug the webcam in order to get the pics off my digital camera.
