I was very hesitant about going for a widescreen monitor at first but realised that perhaps my 7 year old 19" Sony wasn't allowing me to take advantage of the latest developments in software. Eventually boring myself to death with indecisiveness trawling through all the reviews on the web I caught sight of this monitor in a local shop and was so impressed I went home and bought it much cheaper on Amazon.
Coupling it to an nVidia460GTX and Win7 I was amazed at how easily it set itself up, requiring only a couple of adjustments to brightness and contrast to suit my own taste. The picture quality was stunning and made it seem as if my entire software library had been totally updated; I really wasn't prepared for the difference that it made. Of course, much of this was simply down to the fact it was a widescreen and able to display in a much higher resolution than I had been used to but I had done my technical homework previously; seeing it in the shop just showed me how good it looks as a bit of high-tech furniture as well.
Yes, other reviewers are correct in that as it is thin it does seem a bit flimsy, but you're only likely to notice this if you're in the habit of slapping your monitor or balancing it on your knees. On a stable desktop the slim width just enhances it's appearance in my opinion. To get the best out of it I'd recommend you get the digital lead as only an analogue cable is included, although even a gold-plated one is fairly inexpensive, however. I'd also recommend that if you're upgrading from a square box you get a 23" as well as 'size really does matter'!
