i choose this monitor due to the what i read about it, for what it can do. i also read all the reviews about it. for the price... it was totally worth it, the games, films, pictures... everything is in excellent quality and runs verry smoothly. it comes with the power cable, vga and dvi cables, even a double ended audio cable due to the monitor has its own speakers, the sound was the same as my old speakers, so no more speakers for me, my desk is alot less cluttered now. alot of people say "its too bright" or "colours are off", this was easily fixed, there are some excellent pre-sets available and changing the colour, brightness, contrast or anything else is easily sorted out with the easy on board menu and the monitors tactile buttons.
For a monitor it has a thin to medium sized border, quality is excellent from design to actual use, it even arrived two days later by courrier. i would totally recommend this to friends, family... anyone really, even if you wanted multiple monitors... its great. below are links to two videos that helped me choose this monitor.
