Good Monitor at a good price.
I've had this monitor for about a month now. It arrived with no dead/stuck pixels and in great working order. I have watched movies on it and played a couple FPS's on it. I haven't noticed any ghosting or smearing. I use the DMI input and setup was a piece of cake. I like the monitor much better than the 21" Viewsonic CRT it replaced. I would say my computer expertise is 8/10, but as far as using monitors for graphic design where shades and hues are important, I would give myself a 2/10. I have noticed that there is a very slight shade difference on the corners. If I move 2.5' or more away from the screen, it is not noticeable. I think this an effect of the angle of viewing since it's such a large screen. The viewing angle seems pretty good. Unless I am at an extreme angle (almost past the plane of the monitor's face), I can view it from just about any angle in the room. The shades do seem to shift as you move away viewing it straight on. I was worried about the low brightness compared to others monitors but it is not an issue for me. I work in a sunlit room and only have it turned up to 70%. I think it is plenty bright for typical applications. If you're tying to set up a kiosk for a trade show, you may want something with a little more brightness. I have read reviews of other monitors that produce a lot of heat, but this one seems to run fairly cool. All in all, I am very satisfied with price and performances.
