Hello all. I bought this monitor around a year ago and it's still going strong.
Good things about the monitor
x. It doesn't get hot. At all. It really doesn't produce any sort of warmth whatsoever which for me is FANTASTIC. The panel remains cold no matter how bright you set it.
x. It is incredibly bright. So bright, in fact, I personally run the monitor on it's lowest brightness setting as this for me at least is more comfy for my eyes.
x. Colour reproduction is incredibly good, some of the best I've seen on a LCD. Not as good as IPS, but definitely good LCD.
x. Monitor settings are nicely laid out without any stupid marketing names or anything for the features.
x. Supports DDC/CI
x. Extremely lightweight, carrying this thing around is almost fun.
x. The panel, bezel, and back are all well built
x. EXTREMELY energy efficient. As previously mentioned the thing doesn't get warm AT ALL and with my power meter I measure less than 10 watts.
Bad things about the monitor
x. The stand is a little cheap feeling, more than strong enough to hold the monitor up but just a little flimsy feeling and no adjustment other then horizontal tilt. At this pricepoint, I won't hold this against the panel.
x. Small point, but stupid stickers in the bottom left of the monitor "Windows 7 compatible, ECO FRIENDLY, Energy star compliant" - They just look tacky.
x. It has inbuilt speakers. Seriously manufacturers, just remove them. I would much rather a thinner panel then one with speakers.
After a year, the only ill effects I'm seeing is the stand looking a little scuffed up and the panel being a little dirty. All in all incredibly good value for money and when my financial situation is a little more healthy I'll consider picking up another Hanns G panel!
