Just took delivery of this product two days ago, and I have been very impressed with it so far. This is my first TFT monitor, and I was attracted to it by the (mainly) positive reviews and entry-level cost.
It arrived very quickly, was very easy to set up, and I have experienced no problems such as dead pixels. Build quality is impressive, with nothing striking me as 'cheap' looking, despite the great price. I have tested the screen using a variety of media (including 'House of Flying Daggers' on DVD, and Warhammer 40k 'Dawn of War') and everything is vastly improved over my old CRT. Colours are more vibrant and contrast is superb, with no blur. I can't comment on how the performance compares to other models and manufacturers, but is it more than adequate for my needs.
If, like I was, you are hesitant to make the switch to TFT screens, I can thoroughly recommend this one. I did not initially want a 22" monitor, but after shopping around I found that this was excellent value to try out both the newer technology as well as treating myself to a few extra inches!
