This is a gorgeous monitor to look at. The stand is indeed very fiddly and never feels stable, but the monitor has never fallen over, so perhaps that's just a perception thing. The picture is great, the styling is...stylish. There's no irritating power brick. Lovely.

Except.

But do not buy this monitor for use in a quiet room. When you have the brightness down below about 65% (read on for why you'd do that), the monitor starts humming, and the lower you take the brightness, the louder the hum. You know the hum I mean. The 50 Hz hum (here in the UK; 60 Hz for our cousins across the water). Very, very hard to ignore.

Okay, sure, but 65% is pretty dim, isn't it? Not with this monitor it's not. This is one bright monitor. So much so that in my office, which has two walls of untinted windows, I don't want the brightness above 62% or so. Only on very, very bright days do I turn it up a bit, and if you're working at night, you'll want to be down in the 30s or 40s or 50s, at which point the hum is quite loud.

Now, it's a bit directional, so you may be able to arrange your office so the hum passes you by. But if you sit square to the monitor, as one is supposed to, you're in the line of fire.

So: If you work in a noisy environment or are deaf or hard of hearing, snatch up this monitor, it's gorgeous.

If you work in a quiet environment and don't like things humming at you, sigh wistfully and look elsewhere...

I bought this monitor just recently and it's been nothing but a pleasure to own. The high glossy black finish is stunning (better in real life than in promotional images unusually) but its the bright LCD screen that's truly eye catching. Crystal clear image, plays DVDs as well as games and it's not put a foot wrong yet.
The base (if you've done your research you'll have heard this already) is a royal pain to fit but if you're having problems with it, don't give in! I've heard some say to use a touch of Vaseline to help get it in but I didn't bother with any of that, persistence and a little courage will see it through. Once it's on it's sturdy enough. I heard some say it's wobbly, but I only find that if you give it a fairly considerable knock... there's no concern that it'll fall over for sure. The monitor allows for some adjustment but no height adjustment, just tilting forward and back. Not really a big loss for me but may be something you're interested in having your monitor feature.
The monitor is lightweight, more so than you might imagine and came in a relatively small box too. This makes it ideal should you need to move it about. You can connect it via VGA or DVI, but I've heard picture quality for both is excellent (I have it on DVI). There are always DVI to HDMI adapter too if you want to plug it into an HDMI port.
The menu for altering contrast and brightness is simple and easy enough, and all buttons are on the side of the monitor out of view but easy to reach.
A microfibre cloth is included to help keep the monitor clean... even in the short space of time I've had it it's clear it's going to be a bit of a dust and finger print magnet but it's worth it.

+ Was easy to set-up with the exception of putting the monitor into the base, which took some force
+ The display has good colours and is big enough for me to have multiple apps on screen
+ The monitor looks great
- When the monitor is switched off the bright blue LED on the front flashes, which is very distracting
- On-off buttons, why doesn't this monitor automatically switch off?

I took ages working out what would be the best monitor for my needs and this is brilliant. It was easy to install - took a bit of fiddling around to get the calibration right which in the end, I managed. It's a delight to have a lovely clear, large screen (no need to wear glasses now!). It can be adjusted very easily indeed but it doesn't go vertically. The blue light doesn't bother me too much although it depends on the angle you are sitting. I have yet to work out if there are any speakers on this or if I have to install separate ones. All in all, I am delighted with the screen.

This monitor was everything i'd hoped it would be, it did come recommended from my son. It was easy to set up and install, i did this myself and being one of the many female silver surfers currently using the web i was well pleased. The picture is great especially for watching iplayer. Even though there are cheaper ones on the market I would recommend this one.

Having thought about increasing the size of my computer monitor for some time I settled on this one for several reasons. The previous reviews were all excellent and the price was the best deal on the internet. On receiving the monitor the only problem that I had was inserting the base stand into its housing, but having read that a smearing of lubricant (butter)would help, it popped in with no trouble at all. All in all I am very satisfied with this product both in its functions amd appearance. An excellent all round monitor.
