The monitor arrived only a couple of days after ordering which I was pleased about. On unpacking it from its box the first thing I could say is that the monitor is very quite attractive, it has a feel of quality and stable build and the black coat finish is very nice.
Connecting it to the pc was a breeze using the DVI port, quick install of the drivers had my pc recognise it with no problems and simple set up with a resolution of 1920x1080 made viewing very pleasing. Such a decent resolution has meant I can see more on the screen which is perfect for my music studio software and makes life that little bit easier.
I use the HDMI port on it for my xbox360 and once again had no problems setting it up for that, the 360 found it and set up perfectly on it, VGA port also works great and although not used right now it is handly to have.
The image quality is nice and clear, colours are crisp and vibrant to, I found disabling the monitors "Dynamic Contrast" was best as I found it a tad annoying how it would make images darker and brighter with no real need and it was very noticable, so turned that feature off and thats sorted.
Some people may find the blue power light/button on the front distracting and annoying, it is quite bright really but I am used to it now and it doesn`t bother me anymore.
Overall for the money I do feel this is very good quality and since not many monitors of this size can do 1080p that makes it even better value. I certainly recomment this monitor.
