5.0 out of 5 stars Warning, 27 Jun. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A friendly warning to anyone that is used to an older display, or otherwise those who prefer dimmer monitors.

Do not under any circumstances turn this monitor on for the first time at night, with the light off. It will melt your eyes and leave you stumbling around blind for a while.

Other than that, this monitor is fantastic! The image is sharp, bright (perhaps even TOO bright at the default setting), and has vivid colour. The automatic settings adjustment seems to work well, and appears to deliver decent video quality when set to lower resolutions. A very satisfying buy, recommended.

For those not sure about the cable to use with this, the VGA supplied handles the full 1080p just fine. Avoid using HDMI; certainly not perfect for use with an xbox360, but is capable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Consider this audiophiliac pleased., 31 Aug. 2011

Just received this item, and after wrestling it out of the packaging (who doesn't hate that tough plastic case!) I'm giving it a good testing - as expected it is fully Plug&Play. I must say that the sound quality is amazing. Superb response to any pitch, and the attached microphone captures voice extremely clearly without any hint of background noise. If you're looking for a headset good for movies, music, gaming and voIP all in one package: you've found it. Finally; although it isn't important to me personally, the background noise cancelling capability of this is also very good indeed.

All in all a fantastic product!

A note to those who produce recorded/streamed content: this headset doesn't have Stereo Mix recording capability, however it is most definitely worthwhile as the clarity of the microphone entirely makes up for that inconvenience.
